It is quite natural that we find this marriage joined, the Kinnick and Mock families. The first land his grandfather, John Kinnick, owned in North Carolina was purchased from one John Mock, a farm of one hundred and fifty acres. So both families were there living in the forks of the Yadkin River as early as 1795.

So it is a natural consequence for neighbors' children to intermarry, so John took Mary Ellen for his bride, in about 1830, in North Carolina.

It is estimated they left North Carolina in the Fall of 1850 and lived at one time close to his brother Jabez's home on Leatherwood Creek in the house that was known at a later date as the Samuel Yoke place which was a part of the Jacob Halfacre farm.

Just how long in Indiana is also uncertain, but it must have been several years as their older children married neighbors' children in the Clarksburg community.

John Kinnick was a large framed man, tall and erect, had dark hair and eyes, industrious and a good provider. According to his son-in-law, John Pirtle, "a better, kinder man never lived than John Kinnick." This was given to me by his granddaughter, Mrs. E. Nelle Pirtle Meier. She also said that he was very kind and did whatever Sarah Ellen wanted him to do and they had very nice homes.

Sarah Ellen Mock was quite small, a true blond with blue eyes and light hair; she was the mother of thirteen children, and said to be a wonderful cook, very musical and owned and played an Italian harp. She was of a restless disposition and a great roamer, never contented to live in one place very long. So that probably accounts for them moving to Iowa in 1856, when the western fever raged very high here in Indiana. All of their thirteen children were born before they moved to Iowa but the two youngest sons, Jabus A. and Charley E.

They entered land near Bloomfield, Davis County, Iowa, lived there just twenty years, when he met with a tragic death by falling from a load of wood he was hauling for firewood, January 28, 1876, at 67 years of age. He is buried in the Bethel Cemetery near Bloomfield, Iowa.

After his death Sarah Ellen Mock Kinnick lived with her children until her death, November 7, 1881, five years later, which occurred at the home of her son George Kinnick in Louisburg, Missouri, where she had gone for a visit, took ill, which resulted in her death and was buried at Louisburg, Missouri.
