Martin Kinard Family
Several immigrant families of the name Kinard settled, before the
Revolutionary War, in the Dutch Fork part of Newberry County, S.C. A brief
outline of most of these families is found in Dr. L. D. Jordan's "Kinards of
Newberry" (Dutch Fork Digest 2(4):18, 1987).
A bounty petition of John Keynat, for himself and his brother, was
heard at the SC Provincial Council meeting of 26 Jan 1749/50. The petitioner
stated that he "came with his parents in Capt. Brown on the Encouragement
given to foreign Protestants, that his Father and Mother are both dead in
the service of Mr. Middleton." A certificate from Mr. Henry Middleton, Esqr.
was attached to the petition stating that John Keynot and his youngest
brother, Martin, had been his indentured servants and had
been free for a year.
The youngest brother, Martin Kinard, Sr., was born ca 1734 in Germany and
died in 1805. His wife is said to have been Mary Witt. They lived on Crims
Creek. In 1804, Martin Kinard, Sr. sold a 200 acre tract on waters of
Buffalo Creek to Martin Kinard, Jr. This consisted of two 100 acre tracts
granted to Elizabeth Wittle and Mary Vidle (Newberry Deeds G-59). The deed
says the grant of Elizabeth Wittle had been sold to Martin
Kinard, Sr. in 1775. In 1805, Martin Kinard, Sr. sold much of his real
estate on Crims Creek to sons, Frederick and John Kinard (Newberry Deeds
H-12, 13, & 14). In the same year the son, John Kinard, died and his
brothers and sisters sold their deceased brother's land to Frederick
Kinard (Newberry Deeds L-183). In 1809, the remainder of the estate of
Martin Kinard on Crims Creek was sold out to Frederick Kinard by his
children of Martin Kinard, Sr. (Newberry Deeds L-180).
