Stephen G. Kinner was born in Lawrence County, Ky., July 20, 1848, and is a
son of Hansford and Mahala (Curnutte) Kinner, both natives also of Lawrence
County. David, the father of Hansford Kinner, was a son of Rhadam Kinner,
who was a native of Virginia, and who settled in Lawrence County at a very
early date and followed agriculture as a vocation. Reuben Curnutte, the
maternal grandfather of Stephen G. Kinner, was also a native of Virginia.

has been a successful merchant and lumber dealer. Stephen G. Kinner was
reared in Boyd County, but was educated at Notre Dame, Ind., and at Centre
College, Ky., and the Wesleyan College, Ohio. In 1870 he began reading law
under John W. Hampton, was admitted to practice in 1872, and in 1874 was
elected county attorney; in 1880 he was elected Commonwealth's Attorney for
the Sixteenth Judicial District on the Democratic ticket, and in 1886 was

daughter of Jeremiah Wellman, a deceased merchant of Catlettsburg, and to
this union have been born four children, viz: Mary, Lutie, Ceres and Sallie.
