Jesse Kinsey, 1780-1856
I am putting a history of my mother's Kinsey family together. I am interested in locating descendants of Jesse Kinsey, born in 1780, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania. His father, Jonathan Kinsey, moved the family, in 1784, to Port Colbourne, Ontario, Canada. Jonathan died in 1794 or 1797. Jesse Kinsey left Canada and bought land in Washington Co., Kentucky, where he established himself and died there in 1856. He was married twice. He married first, in 1803, to Margaret "Peggy" Sortore. She gave him several daughters. Jesse married secondly, in 1841, to Margaret "Peggy" Dennis. This couple had a few children, which included my grt-grt- grandfather, Jeremiah Kinsey, 1842-1919.
If anyone seeing this is such a Kinsey family member, please get in touch. Thanks, Anthony Lewis
