Daniel Kyger

Daniel KYGER
Born - Abt 1762
Died - 27 Apr 1849 Georgetown, Vermilion, IL
Bur. - Apr 1849 Mc Kendree Twp., Vermilion, IL, Mc Kendree Cemetery

MARRIAGE: Daniel Kiger and Ann Henthorn were married on 9 Feb 1796 in Monongalia Co., VA. Marriage solemnized by James Fleming. [Note: That the surname was spelled, Kiger, on this document. REH]
(Source: List obtained in April 1997 by Monongalia County Clerk, Morgantown, WV 26505 - furnished by Diane Wilson)

Problem: Henthorn/Bell gives the marriage date as: 9 Feb 1796. The marriage is recorded in Monongalia, WV. Others list 2 Sep 1796, which seems to be in error. Probably cause by reading or writing the date 2/9/1796 as 9/2/1796.

12 Feb 1798. James Henthorn, of Mason, KY, by John Henthorn, his attorney in fact, to Daniel Kiger. Cites a 1 Oct 1796 power of attorney authorizing John to sell 1000 acres in Monongalia, now Harrison Co. [WV], on a right hand branch of Big Sandy, adjoining Samuel Lleuellen. Tract patented to Samuel Hanway, 20 Jun 1787, and sold by him to Christian Wireman, 9 Aug 1790; sold by Wireman to James Henthorn, 17 August 1790. Consideration: $1500. Signed: John Henthorn. Witnesses: none. Acknowledged in court. No delivery shown. Recorded: Old Series 1:353-354.

[Note: John Henthorn, brother of James Henthorn, had died in Apr 1786 so John Henthorn, the person holding the Power of Attorney, was probably the son of the desceased John, his son John Henthorn. REH]

... September Court 1800 ordered that James Tibs, John Ramsey, Nicholas Vandevort and Daniel Kyger be appointed to view and lay out a road from Ice's Ferry to Samuel Hanway's Mill the nearest and best way and report to next Court to meet the first Saturday in next month. The court goes on to say that they accomplished that task and it is entered in the court record October 1880.

Adam Henthorn bought land from Daniel Kyger. Daniel was the husband of Ann Henthorn, daughter of James, the second. Adam died without receiving a deed for the property. The Deed Book was burned extensively when the court house in Woodsfield, OH burned in 1868. The following extract was copied from the burned volume by, Leila Francy of Toronto, OH.
