11 Also in 1851, Solomon's neighbor was Matthias Berry, age 56 of English origin, married to Delia, age 43. It is assumed that Matthias was Solomon's father.

13 At some point in his youth (it is presumed), he traveled to Australia to participate in the gold rush fever that swept New South Wales after the discovery of gold nuggets in 1851 by an American, Edward Hargraves. Alexander would have been only 13 years old when gold was first discovered, so we can assume that his trip was some years later. Gold mining continued for most of the century, but the major action in the Australian goldfields, when large nuggets were extracted, occurred by 1861, when Alexander would have been 23.

From his Australia mining experience, Alexander is known to have passed on a large gold nugget to each of his five McKinlay nephews. From all accounts, this represented a very successful gold mining experience, since most miners spent all of their gold on food, supplies, and services while still in the goldfields. The cost of these goods generally increased when more gold was found in a given region ... the end result being that product and service suppliers were the big winners in the goldfields.

Two of the nuggets passed onto Alexander's nephews are still accounted for, and have remained with McKinlay surnames sons down through the family

40 lived a simple life but focussed on the good times and joys. While money was tough to come by living on welfare, she enjoyed simple activities such as playing plastic bat ball with her two girls in the schoolyard or looking after her pets through the years, especially her big cat Sonny. Even though her and Franciscus lived apart for most of their lives, Yvette always made sure that he was doing well.
She had many friends who would visit, and particularly enjoyed having a cup of tea and a cigarette with them. For the last three years of her life, Yvette suffered from degenerative Alzeihmers, and was confined to a wheelchair or her bed for much of that time

43 moved to Preston Connecticut in 1706 after selling his Salem lands to Isaac Peabody. [Research note: have not found a direct relationship link between his wife Keziah and Isaac yet]. On 7 Feb 1702/3 he and David Boardman purchased a 1000 acre farm on the Pachaug River (Preston Book of Deeds). The land is in what is now Griswold Connecticut. In 1718 and 1722 Joseph was representative to the General Assembly for Preston and in 1729 he was Captain of the 2nd Company of Trainband in Preston. Gravestones for Joseph and his wife Kezia are listed in the Hale collection; they therefore existed in the 30's. Unfortunately, they are no longer to be found. The Kinne cemetery is near the intersection of routes 165 and 201 in Griswold Connecticut. Approximately 1/4 mile from the intersection on route 201 there is a dam on the Pachaug River; the cemetery is barely visible from the road, on a hill on the south bank of the river above the dam. The cemetery is on land which formed the boundary between Joseph's farm and the farm his brother Thomas purchased in 1715 Kinne, Joseph (I1160)
