If you are familiar with Don Anger's book that documents the Canadian family line from New Jersey, I am part of the missing 1798 Richard Kitchen line in his book. In 1838 our family line returned to the US along with other Kitchen families that settled in Michigan, Indiana, PA, and Ohio. Our line is Richard's eldest son John Kitchen that settled in Clearsprings, Indiana.Don's book is an excellent resource which, is well documented to the early US. He has done an excellent job of tracing the Canadian line. A photo copy of his book can be obtained from the Historical Scoiety that he donated it to. I posted that information years ago on this message board. "The book by Don Anger, "The Kitchen Family: Canada, USA". Is available through the Norfolk Historical Society (Simcoe, Ontario). They will photo copy Don's book for a fee. Many years ago it cost me $65, but that was when copying was very expensive . Don has most of the details on more recent relatives of the other three brothers' lines that remained in Canada, especially in and around Brant.
