Kinnicks in Tennessee

Kinnicks in Tennessee


When I compiled the 2003 Kinnick Genealogy Book Online, I was pleased to include the whole David R. Kinnick line that Mrs. Waggoner failed to recognize in her 1953 Kinnick Genalogy Book.

David's grand-daughter Sarah L., by his son, George (and his wife Catherine Parker) is shown as married to George W. Barr. At the time of the publication, I had no further information on this family to include. In response to a recent query at ancestry. com, I did some further census research and came up with some more generations of this family (much more can and will be done).

First Generation
George Washington Barr (b. about 1820, TN) married Sarah L. Kinnick (b. abt 1838, TN) on 24 Jan 1861 in Washington Co, TN. [He was listed as Washington G. in the 1870 census and George W. in the 1880 census.]

Children listed in these two U.S. Census files (as I have listed them-may be others)[All b. TN]:
It is believed, pending further research, that the first four children are from prior marriages of George Barr.]
1. Asa Barr (b. 1856)
2. David B. (b. 1858)
3. John J. (b. 1860)
4. Rachel E. (b. 1854)
5. Mary C. (b. 1865
6. Wood M. (Woody) (b. 1862)
7. Alfred Carrol (b. 1866)
8. Martha Erva (b. 1869)
9. Sidney S. Barr (b. 1873)

Second Generation
Wood M. (Woody) Barr (b. abt 1862, TN) married Mary N. Martin (b. Sept 1855, TN) on 28 May 1881 in Smith County, TN. [Woody's middle initial varies by census.]

Children listed in 1900 and 1910 U.S. Census (as I have listed them-may be others)[All b. TN]:
1. Johnnie Bell (b. 1885)
2. Oscar S. (b. 1890)
3. Tabitha (b. 2 Jul 1892, TN; d. Oct 1984, TN - per SSDI)
4. Mattie May (b. 1895)
5. Lucy Jane (b. 1899)

Third Generation
Tabitha Barr (b. 2 Jul 1892, TN) married Luther Johnson Williams (b. abt 1895, TN)

Children listed in 1920 and 1930 U. S. Census (as I have listed them-may be others)[All b. TN]:
1. Mary M. (b. 1917)
2. James L. (b. 1920)
3. Brooksie L. (b. 1922)
4. Geraldine (b. 1924)

If you have additional (or better) information on this set of Barr-Kinnick descendants, I would love to hear from you via comments or my email address.
