It appears that David R Kinney may be the son of Joseph b IRE and Catharine b. NY Kinney.  His wife Carrie Towle appears to be the dau of Nathaniel Towle b. ME (son of Elisha b. NH and Susanna Towle) and Rose/Rosetta Towle.  These records will require further research to confirm, but a place to start.  The birth record that is likely William - only lists 'male' - no given name.  Good Luck.
