“OBITUARY - Paterson Daily Guardian, 3/4/1904;

DR. THEODORE YOUNG KINNE

By the death of Dr. T. Y. Kinne, which occurred at 8 o'clock this morning at his late home, 336 Broadway, the medical fraternity of this city has lost one of its most successful and highly respected members.

Theodore Young Kinne was born at DeWitt, in August, 1838. In 1862, he was graduated from the Albany Medical College, being valedictorian of his class. Afterward he studied homeopathy with a noted physician in Syracuse, and for forty years has been a faithful follower of Hahnemann.

During the Civil War, Dr. Kinne was a staff physician and earned great honor during his two years of service.

He was a senior member of the American Institute of homeopathy, being president during 1891 and 1892. He was at one time president of the board of health of this city and at the time of his death was a member of the board of censors of the New York Homeopathic Medical College, and a consulting physician of St. Mary's Hospital, Passaic.

As a lodge man, he was affiliated with Joppa Lodge of Free Masons, and with the Knights of Templars.

He was always deeply interested in church and Sunday school work and has been a member of the Sunday school board of the Methodist Episcopal Church for forty years, and superintendent of the Sunday school of Trinity M. E. Church since its organization fifteen years ago.

Dr. Kinne became a resident of Paterson in 1867, and since that time has made this city his home.

Funeral services will be held Sunday at his late residence, 336 Broadway, at five o'clock.”     [ad][ph:L]
