  • In the History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas counties, Kentucky [O L Baskin & Co, Chicago, 1882] there is some confusion as to William's origins.

    In talking of the History of Harrison County (p320) it says:

    "William Kinman, a native of Maryland, also settled on the South Fork of Raven Creek"

    However, later in the biography of Greenberry Kinman, William's grandson, it states:

    "His grandfather, William Kinman, came from Pennsylvania about 1800, and settled on the South Fork of Raven, where he had two small distilleries for peach and apple brandy"

    Him being the son of Thomas of Pennsylvania is also doubtful. Thomas' other children were all born in Greene County, Georgia, whereas William first makes an appearance in Pennsylvania in 1780.

    The one certainty is that he is closely related to John Kinman of Pennsylvania, as shown by the 37/37  marker y-STR DNA match between descendants of John and William respectively.
