Kinchen Boon…

One of my intrepid and curious commenters posted a comment asking… “Hey old man… on your map you have a Kinchen guy right next to a Boon guy… what’s up with that? Think there is any chance thats where Kinchen Boon came from?” or something like that, I’m paraphrasing (smiling).

So I did a random Google search for “kinchen boon” chowan…

Kinchen got around… gnome sane? This map is unfinished but already starting rumors…

The pervy William Byrd II even mentioned Mr. Kinchen in his “secret” diary of the Dividing Line Twixt Virginia and North Carolina… well, the pervert mentioned Kinchen’s wife more specifically. She evidently caught Byrd’s eye in 1728. I’m certainly no saint myself and probably should not throw stones… but hell, I just find the byrdman a little too creepy… even by my wine-swizzled glare.
