I am looking for parents names for a Reese KINDLE/KENDAL. The only information I have found for him is two entrys for marriages. One to a Ann BORDEN in Swedesboro, Salem co. in 1765. And another to I believe to be my ancestor a Hannah MCNICHOLES in 1773.( I guess Reese may have been about twenty years old when he first married..so he may have been born between 1745-1748) I though Reese may be connected to a Thomas KENDALL who settled in Gloucester Co. from England in the 1680's. Reese may be his grandson, or great grandson. I believe it may also be possible Reese mothers maiden name was Rees..a family who came over from Liverpoole on the ship called The Vine; to Philadelphia in 1684. The head of the family was named Rees REES from Rudnorshire, with his wife Ann sons John and Rich and daughters Phebe and Mary. Only a wild guess as Rees is the same name with out the e on the end. I hope to find someone who may have genealogical data that has information on Reese KINDLE/KENDALL.
