When I said we were looking for William Alexander Kinch, it seems that he may have gone by just Alexander Kinch. The 2 census reports that we have found he is Alex. We would love to know where he is buried and maybe an obituary for him. He owned a shoe shop and made shoes in 5th in Manhattan, NY in 1846 - 1851 when he died.

Mary: I have managed to dig up some Kinch info and, while it may NOT be exactly what you're looking for, it does help fill in the picture.
U.S. IRS Tax Assessment Lists, 1862-1918
Name: Abijah Kinch State: New York Tax Year: 1863 Roll Title: District 10; Annual and Special Lists; 1862-1863 NARA Series: M603 NARA Roll: 91
It's interesting to note that on these tax lists ABIJAH is listed as a shoemaker.
In Jan. 1863, he's taxed for 75 prs. of Boot----[hard to read handwriting] and boot heels, valued at $62.99. Tax: $1.88

There's more, but I thought you would like at least some info to start.

Hi Mary. If you have been invited to join a chapter of the National Society Colonial Dames of the XVII Century, the difficult part is over. All that remains is to prove your lineage. If you are already a member of DAR or another lineage society, much of your work is already done. The requirements for documentation are basically the same, although it may be necessary to go back another generation or two. I'll be happy to do whatever I can to help.. Please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com
Mary, I can't get back any further back than William Mayhew, b. 1760 (who was in the Revolutionary War). Evidently his father's name was Nathaniel Mayo of Scituate, Ma. I don't know how the name evolved from Mayo.
Mary, about 15 years ago I put my genealogy history (what I knew of it) on Ancestry.com. That was before I started driving tractor-trailer. Back then I had alot more time to do research. Have you ever read Charles Banks "History of Martha's Vineyard"? He did extensive research of the families of Martha's Vineyard. There is also a history of Buckfield where my family lived a couple of hundred years ago.Another research book is "Old Foxcroft" by Mary Chandler Lowell, MD., J.M. I have a copy of this book.
