Valentine Kinder1

b. 22 March 1759, d. 9 November 1822
Father*George Kinder2 b. 1722, d. 1801
Mother*Barbara Christein2 b. 1725, d. 1791
Birth*22 March 1759Valentine Kinder was born on 22 March 1759, probably in Pennsylvania.3
Marriage*1779He married first Elizabeth ______ about 1779.2
Taxation*1789Valentine was taxed £142 on 200 acres, 2 horses, 4 cows, 2 stills and 1 mill in East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1789.4
(Husband) Death1801Valentine became a widower when Elizabeth (______) Kinder died about 1801 at about age 42.2
Marriage*1801He married second Amelia Evans about 1801.2
Occupation*27 February 1808An article of agreement was made and concluded on 27 February 1808 between Valentine Kinder of East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania, of the one part and James Heaton also of East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania, of the other part. Their agreement stated that Valentine Kinder had lent, rented or set unto James Heaton his stills and still house and all belonging thereto, flour mill and brew house, hop yard and orchard and one-third of the meadow and the field adjoining the meadow for the term of three years, and one-third of the pasture and firewood as convenient as Valentine Kinder can get it, for the sum of 700 gallons of merchandisable whiskey deliveries to Frederick town in good barrels for each and every year. And James Heaton was to return everything to Valentine Kinder in good repair at the end of the term, and he was to take good care of the orchard and not skin the trees when he plowed, and he was to plow the orchard in the summer. Both men agreed to bind themselves, their heirs, and assigns in the penal sum of $500, the party failing paying to the party standing. Valentine Kinder and James Heaton each signed their names, Kinder with an "x", and their agreement was witnessed by John and Stephen Hill.1
Administration*23 March 1811 On 23 March 1811, Valentine Kinder signed a document with his "x" stating that he had received $288.96 from Barbara Heaton, administrator for the estate of James Heaton deceased, as full payment for the last year's amount on his lease agreement with the deceased.1
(Husband) Death1817Valentine became a widower for the second time when Amelia (Evans) Kinder died about 1817 at about age 38.2
(Grandfather) Relocation1817Valentine Kinder led quite a large company of families from Washington County, Pennsylvania to Madison County, Illinois, in 1817, and almost certainly his son-in-law, Alexander Laughlin, daughter, Barbara (Kinder) Heaton Laughlin, grandsons, John Heaton and Valentine Heaton, granddaughters, Betsey Heaton, Rebecca Heaton and Barbara Heaton and the newest member of the family, Mary Laughlin, were among the travelers. The party traveled by flat boat down the Ohio from Wheeling, Virginia (now West Virginia) to Shawneetown, Illinois. From there, their stock was driven across the country via the New Design Settlement, and they traveled from Shawneetown by keel boat to St. Louis, and then along the Six Mile route to their chosen home called originally, Six Mile Prairie, and later, Nameoki.5,6
Death*9 November 1822He died intestate on 9 November 1822 at age 63.7
Probate*16 December 1822Probate papers reported that Valentine Kinder had while living and at the time of his death goods, chattels or credits within the state of Illinois. Probate was opened for his estate on 16 December 1822 in Madison County, Illinois, and his sons, Gallatin Kinder and Jacob Kinder, were appointed administrators of his estate. On the same date, Gallatin Kinder and Jacob Kinder and Valentine's son-in-law, Alexander Laughlin, paid a bond to the probate court in the amount of $2,000. Also on the same date, Alexander Laughlin was deposed and made his oath to the Probate Court that Valentine Kinder had departed this life on 9 November 1822 and that, to the best of his knowledge, had died intestate and that his estate would total less than $800.8,9,10
Inventory*18 December 1822 On 18 December 1822 the inventory of the estate of Valentine Kinder was taken by Isaac Gillham Jr. and Amos Squire. The inventory, which they valued at $646.12, was approved as true and perfect by the probate court on 15 Apr 1828.11
Estate Sale26 December 1822Purchasers on 26 December 1822 of items from Valentine's estate included Valentine Heaton and William Gillham, husband of Barbara (Heaton) Gillham. William Gillham purchased his Bible, and Valentine Heaton, spelled "Heyton", purchased a plow. We suspect, at this point in our Brick Wall research, that Valentine and Barbara Heaton were grandchildren of Valentine Kinder.12

John Kingman1

(3rd Neighbor) Land RecordsJohn Kingman was identified as a neighboring land owner in transactions recorded in the original purchase record books of Bridgewater reflecting purchases made by John Bolton from Joseph Cary. The records were not dated, however all appear to have occurred around the same time Bolton settled in Bridgewater. Bolton purchased ten acres of wood lands laid out below the land of John Hayward of the Plain in the swamp, butting partly upon John Hayward's and partly upon land laid out to Elihu Brett, running easterly for its length 60 rods and 24 in breadth, bounded by a swamp pine near the northwest corner and a torn pine tree at the northeast corner and by a red oak tree at the southeast corner and from the red oak ranging westward to a small swamp pine marked on two sides near John Hayward's land where it buts and joins to the lands of John Kingman on the west side and to the lands of Joseph Hayward on the southerly side and easterly end.2

(Widow) Probate28 July 1832Mary and Thomas Gillham were appointed Administratrix and Administrator for the probate of the estate of Jacob Kensler on 28 July 1832 in Madison County, Illinois. David Prickett, Judge of Probate for Madison County, Illinois, wrote that whereas Jacob Kensler died intestate on or about the 3rd day of July AD 1832 having at his decease personal property in Illinois which may be lost, destroyed or diminished if speedy care be not taken of the same to the end therefore that the said property may be collected and preserved for those who shall appear to have a legal right or interest therein. He then appointed Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the goods and chattels, rights and credits, which were of the said Jacob Kensler at the time of his decease with full power and authority to secure and collect the said property and debts wheresoever the same may be found in Illinois and in general to do and perform all other acts which now are or hereafter may be required of them by law.

James Botkin, after being duly sworn and deposed that same day, testified that the personal estate of which Jacob Kensler died possessed did not exceed in value the sum of $600, to the best of his knowledge and belief.

Also on 28 July 1832, Mary Kensler, James Botkin, John Heaton and Thomas Gillham agreed to be held and firmly bound unto the people of the state of Illinois in the penal sum of $1,200 current money of the United States which payment, well and truly to be made and performed, they and each of them did bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, jointly, severally and firmly. The judge went on to write that the condition of the above obligation was such that if the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the good and chattels, rights and credits of Jacob Kensler, deceased, do make or cause to be made a true and perfect inventory of all and singular the goods and chattels of the said deceased which have or shall come to the hands, possession or knowledge of them, the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham as such Administratrix and Administrator, or to the hands of any person or persons for them. And the same so made, did exhibit or cause to be exhibited in the court of Probate for the said county of Madison, agreeably to law, and such goods and chattels, rights and credits, to well and truly administer according to law and all of the rest of the said goods and chattels, rights and credits which shall be found remaining upon the account of the said Administratrix and Administrator, the same being first examined and allowed by the Court of Probate, shall deliver and pay unto such person or persons respectively, as may be legally entitled thereto and further to make a just and true account of all their actings and doings therein when thereunto required by said court. And if it shall hereafter appear that any last will and testament was made by the deceased and the same be proved in court, and letters testamentary or of administration be obtained thereon, and the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham to, in such case on being required thereto, render and deliver up the letters of administration granted to them as aforesaid and shall in the general do and perform all other acts which may at any time be required of them by law, then this obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtue. The document was signed and sealed by Mary Kensler who made her mark, Thomas Gillham, James Botkin and John Heaton.

In a third document, also dated July 28, 1832 and signed by Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, they solemnly swore they would well and truly administer all and singular the goods and chattels, rights, credits and effects of Jacob Kensler, deceased, and pay all just claims and charges against his estate so far as his goods, chattels and effects shall extend and the law charge them, and that they would do and perform all other acts required of them by law to the best of their knowledge and abilities.3,4,5
