      37. Susanna Ward, born 1785; died 1860. She was the daughter of 74. William Ward and 75. Lydia Chamnes.

Notes for William Kinney II:
William McKinney who later changed his name to Kinney is said to have come from Scotland . Later William made a trip back to Scotland and on the return trip sailing on a Dutch boat captained by Nathaniel Scribner they sighted and rescued a number of half dead survivors of a ship disaster in the mid-Atlantic - among whom were Henry Workman I, several brothers and sisters, and his mother and father - all had been bound from Germany to New York City. By the time they reached the port of New York all were dead except Henry and one sister. Henry Workman and William Kinney became real good friends on the Dutch boat and later in new York and for life in North Carolina. Henry Workman, having lost all his possessions in the ship wreck was bound by one of the still active Dutch Courts to Capt. Nathaniel Scribner and taken into his New York home to live, and later married Ruth Scribner, the Captain's daughter. At that time New York was a small city of 25,000 people. He, with two other brothers,tradition says, came from New York to North Carolina, following Mr. Workman there. He had an original grant of land of 164 1/2 acres on cobbins Creek,Rowan Co., NC 12-18-1799. He had bought 200 acres on 11-15-1785. He sold out to his brother Isaac in 1824.

The 1790 census gives William Kinney with 5 boys and 3 girls. Only 3 boys have been identified at this time: Jesse, William II and Isaac. William II is my ggggrandfather. He was born 1783 in NC. He married Susannah Ward in 1811. They had 8 children. He moved from NC about 1821 to Habersham County, GA where he received a land grant in Carroll County, GA 4-10-1827. He died by 1860 in Carroll County, GA.

The 6th child, My gggrandfater, Jeremiah married Nancy McAllister from Tennesse. They had 4 Children while living in Georgia, and moved to Calhoun County Alabama sometime before their fifth child was born in 1858. Jeremiah obtained a land grant of 40 acres in a neighboring county in 1860 but I found no evidence of them ever moving there. They had their 6th child in 1862 and Jeremiah went off to war. He served in the 30th Alabama Infantry Regiment, Company E, which was in General Johnstons Army of Tennessee, Lt. General Hoods Corps, Maj. General Stevenson's Division, Pettus' brigade. According to Nancy's applicatin for widows pension Jeremiah was killed on May 14th, 1864 probably at the Battle of Reseca, Georgia at the beginning of Shermans Atlanta Campain. Records show that Nancy applied several times for a Confederate Widows Pension, but was always denied because at the time they could find no official record that Jeremiah was in the regiment. In later applications, she enclosed affidavites from soldiers that served with Jeremiah attesting to the fact that he was indeed in the outfit. She apparently gave up on the pension sometime in the 1880s. She was last found in the 1890 census living with a relative.

Jeremiah and Nancy's 3rd child, Christopher Columbus, my ggrandfather, was born in Carol County Georgia around 1852. He married Georgia Maxwell in 1872 in Jacksonlle Alabama. They had 6 children. Columbus, as he was called, was a farmer that according to his obituary became a Christian when he was 18, Joined a local Baptist church and led a quiet life devoted to his family and Lord. He died in 1917. I've not been able to find any history on Georgia Maxwell.

My grandfather, Jerry Augustas was born in 1878 in Jacksonville Alabama. He married Martha Jane Cockrell on July 30th 1897. They had 7 children, 1 died at age 13, three others before reaching age 2. At some point he was employed by a railroad Alabama. He had an accident while helping to couple 2 train cars together and lost his right arm at the shoulder. Undaunted, he ran a Texaco filling station outside Pratville Alabama for many years. Martha Jane "Mattie" was born in Nuxobee Mississippii. According to some relatives I met at a recent Cockrell reunion, both Jerry and Matie were wonderfull people who lived children and family. "But make darn sure you don't mess with Aunt Matties petunias!" I was told by each one with a smile. I'm not sure when Mattie died, my grandfather died in 1959, two years after I was born.

Jerry and Matties 6th child and my father, Harold Frederick was born in 1914 in Montgomery Alabama. A natural Artist, he started working as a commercial artist, and in the late 30's went to California and found work with Walt Disney Studios. (Don't get excited, he told me he sat in a room with a few other folks and colored Mickey Mouses britches) Sometime before 1940 he made his way back to Alabama where he met my mother, Grace Modenia Cost and they were married in 1940. Before start of WWII, he discussed it with my mother and they decided he should join the army and get his 18 month obligation out of the way. WWII started shortly there after and the 18 months turned into over 5 years. Dad did tours of North Africa and Italy finishing his duty as a Warrant Officer. He came home from the war and worked for the Birmingham fire department, then found a sales job with Monarch Marking Systems. Between 1946 and 1957 four sons were born. In 1960, he was transfered to Charlotte NC, where he later started a business making rubber plates for the machines he sold. That business grew into Kinney Stamp & Engraving Company where Grace still works everyday with Myself and my oldest brother Fred. (along with 20 employees) Dad died in january 1978.
