Notes:

Bartholomew and Mary lived in Beckstonegate at the time of their marriage. They lived in Mains when Thomas was born. . Bartholomew Kindred arrived from England, via France in 1774, and lived on the land of Thomas Jefferson, Albemarle County, Virginia. The Kindred and Ramey families sailed away from the shores of France in search of the larger freedom of the States. Both grandfathers coming from England across the Channel in order to escape the law, punishable by death, should any tradesman emigrate from English shores. Those were the days when the loss of the colonies rested heavily upon the mother country and she naturally resented the passing from the realm of those skilled in the crafts or arts and whose emigration would rebound to the credit of the lost country across the sea. Four of their sons, William, Edward, Thomas and Bartholomew, were privates from Virginia during the Revolutionary War and all four were at Yorktown when Cornwallis surrendered. William was also with Washington at Valley Forge. Edward and William were both Baptist ministers.

Bartholomew Kindred, Sr. remained in Albemarle County, Virginia where he died, but his sons all migrated west after the war. Bartholomew, Jr. settled in Jessamine County, Kentucky; William and Edward married sisters, daughters of Nathaniel Haggard and Elizabeth Gentry and with the Haggards and Gentrys moved to Clark County, Kentucky about 1788 or 1789. William and Mary Kindred later settled on Red Lick Creek in southeastern Madison County, Thomas Kindred stayed in Albemarle County until 1807 when he went to Tennessee, settling first in Roane County and later in Morgan County.
