Birth: Jul. 28, 1855, England
Death: Dec. 27, 1935
Lake Charles
Calcasieu Parish
Louisiana, USA

The U.S. Census (1900) Lake Charles, Louisiana, Calcasieu Parish shows you were born in Canada and your Mother & Father were born in Ireland. It also shows you & Kate had five children with four living, and had three still in your house, which were 1) Hattie, b-Dec 1876, 2) James A. Jr., b-Oct 1878, 3) Mary, b-Nov 1880. All three children were born in Louisiana. This reflects that you had been in Louisiana ever since or shortly after your marraige in 1875.

The U.S. Census (1880) shows the oldest & first of four children was Nettie b-1875, age 4, who later married George G. Taylor. She had a son (Carr Taylor) and is buried next to her. It is noted that Nettie was born in 1875 in La. and so were the other children born here. That suggests that James A. Kinder & family had been in the [now Kinder, La. area] long before the local people chose to name the town after you as seen on the historic placque. You had to have played an important part in the establishment of the growing community and was well liked.

Canada was once an English Colony in the late 1700's and England gave "Free Ship Passage" to those who would Emigrate to the Canadian colony in North America. This explains why your & your wife's parents came to be in Canada, as were many of the first immigrants from Europe to the U.S.A. via Canada.
