1. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
KINDRED. Relations by blood.
     2. Nature has divided the kindred of every one into three principal 
classes. 1. His children, and their descendants. 2. His father, mother, and 
other ascendants. 3. His collateral relations; which include, in the first 
place, his brothers and sisters, and their descendants and, secondly, his 
uncles, cousins, and other relations of either sex, who have not descended 
from a brother or sister of the deceased. All kindred then are descendants, 
ascendants, or collaterals. A husband or wife of the deceased, therefore, is 
not his or her kindred. 14 Ves. 372. Vide Wood's Inst. 50; Ayl. Parerg. 325; 
Dane's Ab. h.t.; Toll. Ex. 382, 8; 2 Chit. Bl. Com. 16, n. 59 Poth. Des 
Successions, c. 1, art. 3.
