Joseph kinyon born 1775 North Carolina is my GGGGgrandfather I was able to trace back one more generation. His father was James Kenyon born 1746 Richmond County Virginia.James wife name was Ellen Bruce.I found this information on roots webs world project Birds of a feather.I am working on tracing ancestry back farther. I would also like to note that my husband and myself recently visited the Kinyon family cemetary in Washington county Illinois. It was in pretty bad shape, overgrown with weeds. We spent 2 days cleaning it up and put flowers on graves. We just recently learned of this cemetary and will try to clean it at least once a year.We live 4 hours away. We would really appreciate other Kinyon ancestors help with this.
