Hi, Everyone,

My original post was created several years ago. Since that time, further research into the Breeding line has revealed the correct parentage of Nimrod Kiser, Sr.'s wife to be SPENCER BREEDING and ELIZABETH FINNEY. (Winifred Hurst married Spencer "New River" Breeding, not our Spencer "Clinch River" Breeding.

Sorry for the erroneous post.
