I posted the earlier info on John Kinsley, wanted to make it clear. My g-grandfather is John M Kinsley b ca 1858 - 1864. He was raised by the Taaffe family in Wilmot, PA. His marriage application states Michael Kinsley is his father(and mother dead). His death certificate states John Kinsley is his father. I researched many records, censuses,checked many other families. There were 2 Michael Kinsley in PA who were candidates, one enum in 1860 in Cherry Flatts Tioga Co as farm laborer on McNett farm, aged 23; one son of James Kinsley of Stowell, aged 25, who in 1870 was married to Ellen. The 2nd Michael Kinsley (also Kingsley) later moved to Canton, PA, then to Jefferson Co PA; I never could find a link to either of them.So I wondered if the Bridget Kinsely Farrell might have had a brother or cousin named Michael. There is absolutely no info as to who my John Kinsley's parents were. He had 2 daughters Margaret and Elizabeth by his wife Margaret. I am at a dead end here, none of the churches extant in PA area have any records left. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any tips or leads...please.
