Thank you for the tip Lori, I will definately follow up on it! Unfortunately I cannot find a more specific place of birth for "Neal Kinyon (Kenyon)" other than Mass 1809.I wish I could because he is as far back as I have been able to trace and until I can find more information on him I am stuck!I do know that He and Mary S Kinyon (b.1817 Conneticut) had two daughters and at least three sons, Mary (b.1833) and Julivett (b.1837).He owned a Blacksmith shop in New York and had at least 3 Blacksmiths/apprentices living and working with him in the shop.I find it curious that they are all immigrants from Ireland, or Britian (Lancashire) by way of Ireland, yet claims to be a natural born citizen according to the 1850 NY census. I have a suspicion he possibly lied about his birth place in order to own and operate the blacksmith shop without prejudice effecting his business????I am told he also appears in the 1840 census for the same location but I have not been able to find it. :(Do you have any other information concerning the Mass Kinyons (Kenyons)?
