I have an Elizabeth Kinder, b. about 1825, d. 1/1886 who married or shacked up with George Washington Hinkle and had one daughter and two sons in Lee Co VA. I have found no marriage data. George Hinkle died at Point Lookout MD as a prisoner of the North during the Civil War and Elizabeth Kinder raised the children alone. Children were Serelda Alice Hinkle, Ambrose Hinkle, and Floyd Hinkle. I will apprciate any information about Elizabeth Kinder or George W. Hinkle.
Family story says that Elizabeth Kinder worked as a domestic for Dr. Lloyd near Stickleyville VA. George Washington Hinkle came to the area, from an unknown place, with his belongings on his back. He was a artist with leather, wood, and/or metal. He stopped at Dr. Lloyd's place for a rest and day work where he spotted Elizabeth and announced that he intended to marry that girl. This family is a problem for me!!! Please help.
