Canadian “Zenas” Kinsey? | Evelyn in Montreal

Bruce Kinsey said:

Some years ago, Ross B. Kenzie told me our family may have emigrated from Canada and I should be able to link our line with his research. I recently (thanks to the internet) found a record of my grandfather’s birth (Frederick L. Kinsey) in Ontario in 1871.His father was David P. Kinsey, who I thought may have been Phineas’s David.

After Googling a few more Canadian records, I discovered that David’s father was, in fact, “Zenas” Kinsey (1817-1894)I also came across a John B. Kinsey who witnessed David’s wedding in 1863.Other than that, I haven’t been able to locate anything else about Zenas. I’ve checked the Swiss line of Kinseys that Ross was kind enough to give me, with no better luck.The trail has gone flat.

Does anyone have any background on Zenas Kinsey (or possibly Catherine, his wife) or John B. Kinsey who may have lived in the Kent County, Ontario area at the time?

Thanks for your help.
