Michael Kinsel and Nancy Lane are Todd’s 4X Great Grandparents.

Todd’s mother Marilyn is in the DNA Circles at Ancestry.com for both Michael and Nancy.

Michael Kinsel was born in Virginia in 1759. His parents are unknown.

Nancy Lane was born in 1774 in Loudoun County, Virginia. She is the daughter of William Lane and Nancy Allen. William Lane served in the American Revolution with the 10th Virginia Regiment. William participated in two Georgia Land Lotteries, which distributed Creek Indian lands to white settlers. He had 2 draws in the 1807 lottery and won one lot in Morgan County (at the time, Baldwin County). Lots were 202 acres. He participated in the 1827 lottery, earning two draws based on his service in the American Revolution. He drew land in Troup County and land in Lee County. He sold his Morgan County land to his son William Lane Jr.

John Kinsel (1792-1852) and Sophenia Daymude (1810-1876)

John Kinsel and Sophenia Daymude are Todd’s 3X Great Grandparents.

John Kinsel was born in 1797 in Virginia. He was the son of Michael Kinsel and Nancy Lane. Read more about them here.

Sophenia Daymude was born in 1810 in Virginia. She is thought to be the brother of James Fenton Daymude, who married John Kinsel’s sister. The marriage record for James Daymude and Ann Kinsel states that James’ father is Jacob Daymude.

John and Sophenia married on March 8, 1829 in Loudoun County, Virginia. The marriage record states that Sophenia was the ward of John Kinsel, which would seem to indicate that her parents had died. However, the Jacob Daymude I find in Loudoun County, Virginia who is assumed to have been her father didn’t die until the 1860s.

On the 1830 US Census, John Kinsel was head of a household in Cameron, Loudoun County, Virginia. There were 4 in the household: 1 male aged 10-14; 1 male aged 20-29 (John was 33); 1 female under age 5; 1 female aged 15-19 (Sophenia was 20).

On the 1840 US Census, John Kinsel was head of a household in Madison, Perry County, Ohio. There were 6 in the household: 1 male aged 5-9; 1 male aged 30-39 (John was 43); 1 female under age 5; 1 female aged 5-9; 1 female aged 10-14; 1 female aged 20-29 (Sophenia was 30).

The only children of John and Sophenia that I know about were born after these census records. Their youngest children, the 4 that I know about, were born in Ohio from 1841-1849. Sometime after 1849 the family moved to McLean County, Illinois. I can’t find the family on the 1850 US Census. I do find 3 Kinsel families on the 1850 US Census in Perry County, Ohio – John’s mother Nancy Lane Kinsel lived with her daughter Frances Kinsel Daymude and family; John’s brother Thomas’ family; and John’s brother George’s family. There were no Kinsel’s found on the 1850 US Census in McLean County, Illinois.

John died in 1852 in McLean County, Illinois according to a published biography of his son John. His Find A Grave memorial is here.

On the 1860 US Census, Sophenia was head of a household in Dry Grove, McLean County, Illinois. She was 45 and farming. Her children in the home, all said to have been born in Ohio, were: Jacob, age 19; Nancy, age 16; Jay (John), age 10; Ellen, age 11.

On December 29, 1863, Sophenia married Henry Pease in McLean County, Illinois.

On the 1870 US Census, Sophenia was 57 and widowed. She lived in Bellflower, McLean County, Illinois, with daughter Ellen and her family.

Sophenia died on February 15, 1876 in Ringgold County, Iowa, where she lived with her son John. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.

The children of John Kinsel and Sophenia Daymude:

They had at least 3 children born before 1840, but I don’t know their names.

Jacob Alton Kinsel – Jacob was born February 6, 1841 in Perry County, Ohio. He married Virginia Landes on October 20, 1864 in McLean County, Illinois. They had at least one child. He died September 8, 1869 in McLean County, Illinois. His Find A Grave Memorial is here.

Nancy Kinsel – Nancy is Todd’s 2X Great Grandmother. Read about her here.

John W. Kinsel – John was born September 16, 1847 in Ohio. He married Isabel M. Pollok and they had at least 4 children, including sons Rex and Daymude. He died October 11, 1909 in Ringgold County, Iowa. His Find A Grave memorial is here. The book “Biographical and Historical Record of Ringgold and Decatur Counties Iowa” found on GoogleBooks contains a biography of John.

Sarah Ellen Kinsel – Ellen was born in 1849 in Ohio. She married William Gardner from Scotland in about 1867. They had 6 children. She died in 1918 in Nebraska. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.

Francis Marion Hampton (1840-1899) & Nancy Jane Kinsel (1844-1913)

Frank & Nancy are Todd’s great great grandparents, the parents of his great grandmother Katherine P. Hampton.

Francis “Frank” Marion Hampton was born in 1840 in Ohio. His parents are Jeremiah Hampton (who fought in the War of 1812) and Pamelia Worster (whose father is said to be John Worster, who fought in the Revolutionary War, but I haven’t proven a connection.) You can see Jeremiah’s Find A Grave memorial here and Pamelia’s here.

Nancy Jane Kinsel was born on January 10, 1844 in Ohio. Her death record lists her father as George Kinsel. There’s a Nancy Kinsel born in 1844 in Ohio whose parents are John Kinsel and Sophena Daymude. I think it’s likely that her parents are John and Sophena, but I’m not sure. Maybe George/John Kinsel is one person. I’m still working on this.

On the 1850 US Census, 11-year-old Frank lived with parents Jeremiah, age 58, and Pamelia, age 50, in Hopewell, Ohio. Sisters Sarah, age 19, and Susan, age 5, also lived in the home. Jeremiah was a butcher.

On the 1860 US Census, 19-year-old Frank lived with the Thompson family in Normal, Illinois. They were farmers, and Frank was a farmer.

Francis and Nancy married on October 23, 1862 in McClean, Illinois.

On the 1870 US Census, Frank was 30 and Nancy was 26. They were farming in Normal, Illinois. Albert was 3 and Anna was 10 months.

On the 1880 US Census, Frank was 40 and Nancy was 36. Albert was 12, Anna was 10, and Alice was 5. They were farming in White Oak, Illinois.

Francis died on October 24, 1899 in Union County, Iowa. His Find A Grave memorial is here.

On the 1900 US Census, Nancy was 56 and widowed. She was farming in Grant, Iowa. Four of her children were at home: Albert, age 32; Alice, age 25; Kate, age 17; Grace, age 11.

On the 1910 US Census, Nancy was 66 and widowed. She lived with son Albert, age 42, and daughter Grace, age 21.

Nancy died on March 13, 1913 in Union, Iowa. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.
