Kinley Wilson Tree

My 3xgreat grandfather William E Wilson spent time in the USA having followed his brother John there.   Having made contact with John’s descendents there is a tangled web of family as second and third cousins married each other.

Here is the edited condensed version of the Kinley Wilson family tree – showing the links to the Coulter’s, Tener’s and Campbell’s.  It’s taken from my Family Tree programme so sorry for all those Caps!  The bolds are my ancestors.

More information on the Tener family can be found in the Tener Book.

    Distant Cousin! I am engaged in a major project to update the Tener Blue Book, which has many links to the Wilson’s and Kinley’s. My link is via Sarah Kinley and Richard Tener, who had a daughter Matilda who married David Galbraith. His daughter Annie married Thomas Campbell Wilson in 1892. I would like to share notes with you!

    1. Hi David,
      You must be a cousin to Kara and Cheryl! We were in touch many moons ago with various other cousins using the Tener Blue Book. Sounds like quite a project!

      I’ll email you.
