      Jackson County Birth Records:
      Rebecca Jane Kinser, 7/11/1859, Val & Jane Kinser, Bear F(ork) PO, Jackson co farmer, reported by father, V Kinser [Bear Fork runs southeast from Belgrove]
      Sarah V Kinser, 7/1859, Valentine Kinser & Eliza, Pond Creek, Jackson Co, farmer, reported by Eliza Landon, mother [1860 census shows Eliza Landon married to Thomas Landon, with Sarah the youngest of 5 children, Eliza born Ohio, Thomas born NY. Pond Creek is located where Jackson County meets Wood County at the Ohio River. Since Eliza is still living with Thomas a year after this birth, I doubt that she really reported it as a Kinser birth. This birth record was typed, was a mistake made when the written records were typed or when it was written? should be Rebecca Jane and perhaps the two entries were combined when transcribed. It does not appear to be reported as a Landon birth, and the Kinsers lived about as far away from the Landons as you can get and still be in Jackson County.]
