TITLE: ISRAEL KENNY AND HIS CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
AUTHOR: EDWIN WALLACE BELL
PUBLISHED IN YORK SUNBURY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, 1944
The Kinneys were blacksmiths and metal workers for several generations. Israel Kinney was a blacksmith as was his son Stephen, and his grandson Israel Kinney. Edwin W. Bell, in Israel Kenny, His Children and their Families, 1944, suggests Israel was from Ireland but this has since been disproven. Israel Kinney married Susannah Hood on Jun. 9, 1763, at Topsfield, Massachusetts. She was born at Topsfield, Oct. 27, 1745, the daughter of Nathaniel Hood and Abigail Potter. Her sister, Sarah Hood, had married, Dec. 9, 1762, Alexander Tapley; and her sister, Abigail Hood, had married, Jul. 18, 1761, Stephen Hovey. The three sisters, with their husbands, emigrated from Topsfield to the Township of Maugerville, New Brunswick in 1767. Israel’s widowed sister-in-law, Abigail Phillips, married Richard Barlow had settled in Maugerville a couple of years earlier. Richard Barlow was in charge of the store established in Maugerville by the Saint John River Society, also known as the Canada Company.
About 1768 when Israel Kinney moved from Maugerville, across the river, to Oromocto. Kinney built his log house just above the blockhouse, called Fort Hughes, at the mouth of the Oromocto on its southerly bank near where the town of Oromocto is now located.
On Christmas Eve 1791 while returning home from Maugerville Israel fell through the ise and drowned. He was buried in the old "Morrison Grave Yard," located near where the Baptist Church was later built in Oromocto. His wife, pregnant with their youngest child, was in Topsfield visiting relatives when the tragedy occurred. Israel’s youngest son, Andrew, was born in Topsfield shortly after his father’s death.
