This page will be designed to find descendants and share data between relatives of Michael KINSEL & Nancy LANE. The family came out of Loudoun County, Virginia and migrated over to Fauquier County, Virginia, where their remaining children were born. [mrg.k-k]
Michael & Nancy had ten children of whom I am aware: Elizabeth (believed to be the oldest), "Polly" Mary, John, "Nancy" Frances Ann, William, Margaret, Martin, George Washington (Sr.), Thomas Albert (Sr.), and Catherine Ann. Birth order of children 2 - 6 is not known with certainty, as only gender and age ranges were shown in Census data before 1850. [mrg.k-k]
Elizabeth KINSEL & husband, Thomas HARPER, had already moved to Ohio in 1814. Michael & Nancy relocated to Perry County, Ohio in 1835 with their four youngest offspring, who were aged in their early 20's to mid teens. Those children found spouses after arriving in Ohio and married in Perry County. [mrg.k-k]
Martin KINSEL married Elizabeth OGG. George Washington KINSEL (Sr.) married Mary JOHNSTON/JOHNSON. Thomas Albert KINSEL, (Sr.) married Minerva SYCKS. Catherine Ann KINSEL married Thomas H. RUSH. Everyone lived on neighboring farms in Pike Township, Perry County. Martin took his family to Richland Township, Vinton County, Ohio. Eventually, George and his family moved to Knox County, Missouri. And Catherine Ann and her family relocated to Illinois near her sister, "Nancy" Frances Ann. [mrg.k-k]
Michael & Nancy's older children had married in Virginia. John KINSEL, who married Sophena Ann DAYMUDE, and "Nancy" Frances Ann KINSEL, who married James Fenton DAYMUDE, (a brother of Sophena DAYMUDE), trailed along to Perry County, Ohio, but later moved to Illinois. John to McLean County. "Nancy" Frances Ann to the area that borders Effingham and Clay Counties. [mrg.k-k]
William KINSEL, who married Frances LEWIS and William's sister, Margaret KINSEL, who married Francis KIRKPATRICK, were the only children who stayed in Virginia. William and Margaret died aged in their 30's. [mrg.k-k]
It is unsure what happened to "Polly" Mary KINSEL. [mrg.k-k]
Marriage bonds or records have been obtained for 9 of the 10 children, except "Polly" Mary. No bond or record has manifested for Michael KINSEL & Nancy LANE. Research has been done in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania looking for it. [mrg.k-k]
The land in Ohio was actually owned by Michael's son, Martin. A copy of the deed is in my possession. Michael was shown to have owned 3 horses on the Perry County, Ohio Personal Property Tax List, but he also signed those over to Martin by 1840. Michael did not have a will, which makes it difficult to pinpoint his exact death date. A family record uncovered by Charles WHITE (now deceased) showed Michael's death as September 5, 1850 in Perry Co., OH. & Nancy LANE's death as January 1865 near Effingham, IL. We don't know how or where Charles found this information. [mrg.k-k]
Tombstones have been found and photographed for Elizabeth KINSEL-HARPER, "Nancy" Frances Ann KINSEL-DAYMUDE, Martin KINSEL, George Washington KINSEL (Sr.), Thomas Albert KINSEL (Sr.) and Catherine Ann KINSEL-RUSH. Birth dates can be calculated from some of the inscriptions on the monuments. The markers, if any exist, for Michael KINSEL & Nancy LANE-KINSEL have not been found to my knowledge. [mrg.k-k]
Most of this KINSEL/KINSELL ancestry/descendancy has been personally researched by me starting in the 1980's from many sources - records, places, people, etc. I have tried to verify most facts and provide what I have learned. As you know, the hearsay of family lore is not always true, but it can provide valuable clues. Please respect this information and that of others. If you "borrow" anything, please cite your sources. Others, who copy from what you copied from me, might have questions and want to know the materials' origins. Revised again 03-18-2011. [mrg.k-k]
