Timothy Kinney m. Margaret Crookston. Where? Both apparently from Ireland. He was a sheep rancher in Sweetwater Co., Wy. (Rock Springs)and is listed in the census of 1880 as a ranch hand. No family is listed, however I know he had 3 daughters and Mary married James A. Dougherty in Salt Lake City and moved to Portland, Oregon. Another daughter married a Murphy.
I cannot find much about this man who apparently with other men owned a large ranch about this same time. I did run into an entry on "MRS. TIMOTHY KINNEY" listed as dying about 1893 in Rock Springs.
Can anyone tell me more about this man and his family? When he died? Did he remarry? Children? Was there a son Timothy wh died in 1887 in Salt Lake City, Utah at 40 years of age?
Please help if you can. Thanks
