According to my records, William's spouse was Mary Cilley. They were married 9 Sep1748 in Newmarket, NH. Hope this helps. We must be "cousins" if this is your family, 'cuz it's mine, too.

Any data about a Christopher Keniston / Kenniston / Kennaston in the Newmarket, NH area?

I have this document from th Genealogical Dictionary of ME & NH but am trying to connect it all to a Catherine Kiniston, possibly a daughter to Christopher...

I will try to transcribe it as exact as I can...someone did explain the (5) means that this is the son of #5 John of Dover etc....
