Let me tell you how we are related. My G-G-Grandfather is James S. Kaighn, 4th child of Elias Kaighn, Sr. and Mary Shillingford. James (of Clarksboro, Gloucester County, NJ)was married to Mary Watson, of Hurffville, Gloucester county, and they had two Sons, John Jackson Kaighn and William Henry Kaighn. You are descended from John Jackson and I am descended from William Henry. He was my Great-Grandfather.
I am very glad to make your acquaintance. If you send me your snail-mail address( to Robertc37@prodigy.net
) I will send you the information that I have accumulated.
My mother had a half-brother, Francis Kaighn, who did a lot of work on the family, and who passed away before I had chance to get the information form. I happened to go to the Camden County Historical Society one day and found a copy of his work, which incidently showed Vincent Nirella and Danny Nirella as children of Vera Kaighn and Danny Nirella, children of Wilfred M. Kaighn and Mary Tanier.
Goes to show it's a small world.
I'll be glad to swap information with you.
Sincerely, Bob Christine, Thursday, Jan.13,2000
