Welcome to the beginning of the search for the KINNEY family tree of which I am a part. Eventually I will include the research that I have completed to this date, March 7, 2009. It is hoped that as more people see this site that more connecting Kinney family information will come to be included.
My name is Lawrence F. Kinney and most people call me by my nickname, Larry. I was born on August 5, 1935 in the Town of Lebanon, Madison County, State of New York. My parents were Robert L. Kinney and Blanche L. (Lewis) Kinney. I have traced my Father's line back to my great-great-grandparents, Lawrence and Mary Kinney. They appear on the 1880 census for the Town of Brookfield, Madison County, State of New York. The census shows that they had five sons. My great-great-grandparents ancestry was Irish and I think they came over from Ireland in the mid-1800s. I have searched for their names on ship manifests but at this point am uncertain if I have the correct information. I would eventually like to include ancestral information from Ireland.
I have two old family reunion photographs taken in Middleport, Town of Lebanon, Madison County. One is dated 1920 and the other I think is from 1910. I have a partial key identifying most of those appearing in the 1920 photograph. This site will be linked to a site that includes some of my personal photographs. More photographs will eventually be added and that will include the 1910 and 1920 family reunion photographs.
Please watch for additional Kinney family information that will follow this meager beginning. I may be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions or additional family information please contact me. Thank you.
