King Cousin Connection

Just received a nice note from a cousin, Leon, who connects with me on the King line.  His ancestor was Thomas King (1817-1864) and his second wife, Martha E. (Haggerty) King (1830-1912) through their daughter Elizabeth.  His Thomas was the brother of my maternal 3rd-great grandfather, Daniel King (1820-1876).  The family lived in Madison County, Indiana.

Elizabeth was married to James Franklin Fink.  Hopefully, he can share some more detail on his line and I can add more cousins to my database.  Prior to his email, I only had Elizabeth's date of birth and no information on a marriage.

It appears that neither of us have discovered the origins in North Carolina of Thomas and Daniel's father, William King (c1790-1869).

Elizabeth's husband was James Franklin Fink, not Kirk.The Kirk's come in 2 generations later.

Sorry for the confusion. Leon Kikk
