  • Notes 
    • Abraham Kinzie, "The founder of this family was a native of Switzerland whom religious persecutions first drove to the Palatinate and afterwards to America. He arrived in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, as early as 1735 if not before. The old progenitor, Abraham Kinzie by name, resided near Quakertown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he died, leaving a family of several sons. The names of two were Dilman and Abraham."

      (Kinzie is now spelled different ways by different branches of the family, viz: "Kinzie, Kinzey, Kinsey, Kinsie and Kinse")
