Searching, hoping, wishing, to find William McKinney parents. He has been lost in the maze forever!!An early resident of Lewis Missouri he married 1 Aug 1860 to Sarah Seeley Willcocks (Wilcox) according to their marriage record. However grandma's FGSheet indicates that male twins were born 18 Oct 1825, Lewis, Missr. Hassard F survived to adulthood but A Johnson is not found on census or any further records. Sarah was also a twin.

Mary Elizabeth was born 30 Jan 1827 and mar. John Edwards
29 Sep 1845. Another set of male twins, Joseph and John were born 2 Mar 1830 and according to census in Illinois. Joseph mar 10 Feb 1856 Penelope Jane Erwin. No further record of John on 1840 or 1850 census. The last child and my grandma line is Sarah Jane McKinney, born 23 Dec 1837 back in Lewis, Missr. and mar. Henry Hampton Hutchison.

So, William McKinney, the father of this family lived, married, raised his family, and died 1 Aug 1860 in Lewis, Missr. and I still cannot ID what William he is? He indicates on all the census's that he was born in Georgia. It appears that all the GA McKinney's except a couple, cleared out and headed to KT/TN around 1800/1815.

All the Williams that I find (a whole bunch!!) are all taken. So, where in the heck is he?? He grew up on the move probably and by 1824/25 found his spot at age 24 and stayed there. So, logically he should be easy to locate!! ?? and he is on the census -- but not his parents!!

Does anyone have information on the origins of the McKinneys that eventually ended up in the Berrien/Cook Co. area of Georgia? Peter(b1804) and Isham(b1808) came to Berrien Co. sometime before 1850 via Colleton County, SC. Don't know if they were born there or traveled there from somewhere else. They married Sineath sisters. Please any info or descendants, I'd love to make contact, thanks!

I am a descendant of James W. McKinney Born 25 Oct 1810 Pennsylvania - Died 30 Dec 1884 Pike Cty Illinois. Am trying to find information on his father (George McKinney) or his mother (Mary Campbell).
I have a copy of George's will, but no info on birth or marriage. I believe George to be born in 1762 in Ireland (possibly Down County) and married in Ireland to Mary 1797. My Grandmother believed the family to be from Isle of Mann, or Ulster Northern Ireland
I will be in Ulster and Scotland spring/summer of 2015 and am hoping you can give me a starting place to do some research there.
Thanks,
Cheryl Henry

You research indicates a few things, as we are over 80 Johnson, Johnston,Jonson,Jonsen,Johnstone etc researcher sharing information and documentation,

FIrst It had been established the WEstfield is part of the Dan River Waterway System. SO we have been told. Early travel was always around a waterway system as no roads were placed into Mt. AIry tell Joseph CLoud place one there in 1760 era. ( we have exact time construction began in a report that is on going for Westfiels Community first Started as TOMS CREEK) Cloudds are INvovled with One HUdson Johnson

THeJohnson with surnames of Wrigth and Allen are interesting as there is THe WIlliam Allen familes coming off THe ALlen, Hunt ,Minge etc families of 1630 Tappahnna Lands, THese will be intermearried with the Benjamin Johnson QUaker of HEnrico Co Lines starting in 1720 era. What is interesting is these JOHNSON's will devirsefy into Methodist and Baptist families. One of WHIch is on the Dan RIver as Gideon Johnson and wife De Graffenried.

Now another point of INterest is the People that are in the TOms Creek aka Westfield COmmunity is the MUlatto family named GOwens, or Goins his fist forefather was baptized in 1655 Era by the Rev.Edward JOhnson of CHeesecake Parish, who left one son Edward Johnson in the care of the allied HUBBARD Familes, who will also be found in the WESFIELD COMMUNIY as the Clarke, Ballard familes.

WE also know that Myhill Gowen ( Mulatto Baptized by Rev Edward Johnson is involed with these Ballard familes in 1702. A Myhill GOwen is also involed with a Edward Johnson in this Same TIme Period.

The CLarke Familes married to Ballards of WEstfields COmmunity lead you right back to CHristopher Clarke land owner by ALexander McKinney and Edward Johnson in St. Peters Parish,

WHen all else fails research the lands that your forefathers caem there for they did not come alone. The Land will tell you about your ancestors as they came ther for that Land. Examples one of your neighbors of Obadiah McKinney if WIlliam GOinds a Mulatto family traced bacy to 1655 YOrks Co being baptized by the Rev. Edward Johnson, well this GOwen child will next be involved with the BALLARD Families who comes to Toms Creek the firt name of the Westfiled Quaker Church. Now if you cross refeence the BALLARD familes you will find they are Married to the CLARK familes of Christopher Clarke of St. Peters Parish neigbors of ALexander McKINNEY. now the familes aaround you study their Travel Paterns. for they are your Kinsman Tony L. JOhnson

Billy F. Mckinney was a slaveholder in the Butler County area of Kentucky. His Legal name of course would be William. He was of Irish descent and had dealings with the Sweatt Farm Plantation in Richland County. He had a son Calvin (Cal) Mckinney by a slave woman, who became overseer of plantation. He allowed Cal to marry another slave at the Sweatt Farm , named Nancy Sweatt, who already had a son previously named Peter H. Sweatt. After emamcipation Calvin and Nancy bought land and established a farm in Sugar Grove, KY with their son Frank Mckinney and daughter Millie Mckinney and other children. Peter joined them after war with his new wife Nancy Porter, he had escaped and joined Union army. The farm flourished and when James Albert Mckinney, nicknamed Uncle Jim, Frank's son, Cal's grandson, inherited it grew over 900 acres where he provided land for a school for the colored children and a church. My family still owns a parcel of this land today in Sugar Grove.

My husband descends from David McKinney and Isabell Winningham, in Texas Co.,Mo., family oral history has always been that their original immigrant was George McKinney and Margaret Hutchinson who were Scotch-Irish from Carricfurgus, Northern Ireland. All this proves out the only problem I'm having is linking George to Henry McKinney I'm fairly sure there is someone or maybe two that are between them.

seeking information about Elenor (or Eleanor) McKinney married to Roger McKinney. Elenor named grandchildren Robert, Robert Ditton and Timothy in her will signed 19 Jan 1989 and something for the children of Sampson Wall. Sampson was a witness to the will.
Has anyone have names of parents of Elenor and was she a Wall before she married a McKinney and was she Sampson Wall's sister if her maiden name was Wall?
I am having a little trouble finding Sampson Wall (thought to be my ancestor) and am hoping that Elenor McKinney's LWT might provide some clues.

Hello, I am interested in the McKinneys of Colleton County, SC. There are several McKinney(sp) names in Censuses there, but I'm wondering what the relations are, and if anyone has researched this or is descended from these families. I am descended from Peter McKinney (moved to Berrien Co., GA)>John S(ineath?)>John Lewis> Shellie Elmer(moved to Alachua Co. FL)> JoAnna. Specifically, who Peter's father/mother were (mother may be Elizabeth Burnett?1850 Census?second marr.?) and whether this Peter McKinney is (as so many Ancestry.com Trees believe--I doubt this) the Peter McKinney that died as a Civil War POW in NJ.

Thank you for all your work!

Hi,
I'm interested in your material, as my 3x great grandmother was Melinda or Verlinda McKinney (1810-1881), wife of Etheldred Watson Thomas, Sr., daughter of Harris McKinney (1784-1864). My mother was a Thomas. I would like to find out where the McKinney family line originated, but have only gotten them back to Gilbert McKinney (1715-1746) of Isle of Wight County, VA. I look forward to seeing what's here.

I haven't seen much at all about the McKinneys from Colleton County, SC. I am descended from Peter McKinney (b.1804) through John S., John L., Shellie, JoAnna (all McKinneys) then me. Peter and his brother Isham (b.1808) moved to Berrien County, GA, [Peter moved bef. 1840, Isham, after] then Shellie moved with a few of his brothers to Alachua County, FL. I don't know who Peter and Isham's father is, among other things. I have several specific questions, but if anyone knows of this line or is a part of it, please contact me. Thanks so much!

Hello

I'd like to bring up two questions and hopefully you may have some insight.

1) The 1830 Pulaski Co KY census has Flemon McKinney living next door to John T. Thurman. There is a McKinney/Thurman dna match - do you know what the possible relationship was between John T. Thurman and Flemon McKinney?

2) John T. Thurman's father was Benjamin Thurman who left a will (Pulaski Co KY written 1836). In the will, Benjamin mentions a daughter named "Polly Kinney". I'm thinking that the recorder left off the Mc of the Kinney. Do you have any McKinney wives named Polly in early Pulaski Co KY and that her maiden name has not been proven by document? Is it ossible that Flemon McKinney had a wife named Polly in 1836 - which would explain why Flemon was living next door to Polly's brother, John T. Thurman.

The Mckinney Maze has a reference in it about a book that pertains to my family name, its called:
Blatchley physicians and pioneers: a family history of descendants of Thomas Blatchley, 1635-1929 by Shirley Stebbings
I would love to buy this book if possible, its no longer in print or at the very least have a copy made of it. It would mean alot to our family.

Thanks for this wonderful site about the McKinneys. I am researching the Buckner Abner McKinney family.
He moved from Durant OK to Dallas TX after 1920. He was a banker in Dallas where he died in 1939. His obituary was featured on the front page of both Dallas' papers.

I am trying to locate the origins of Claude Ellsworth McKinney who was my great grandfather. I believe he was from Louisiana but had moved to Los Angeles in the early 1900s (?) He had at least five daughters and a son: Emma Kate, Faye, Willetta, Blum, Creola and Frank. I am originally from California and have been searching for his roots.

My mother in law was Jessie Manila McKinney b. 1899 in Cabool, Mo. her parents were Andrew Jackson McKinney and Emma Ally Fleming. They had an oral history that their original emigrant was George McKinney who was from Carrickfurgus, Ire. m. to Margaret Hutchinson sister of Elizabeth Hutchinson Jackson, mother of Andrew Jackson, this is all true but I cannot connect them to our family. I have met a couple of people who had the same oral history. I've done my hasbands DNA but it is MtDNA and I'm not sure how helpful it's going to be.. If anyone has this same history or out of the William Henry McKinney line from NC, Tn. and Mo. please e-mail or call me @ 417 844-7123.

Just started this year working on my grandfathers line, which is Mckinney. My gg grandfather was Egbert Thomas Mckinney from Prince Edward, Virginia.I have his line traced back to the year 1650 in Scotland.Egbert McKinney was married to Sadie May Bradbury, from what I've heard they divorced and after her son died she received money. She took that money and purchased land in Louisa County, va. She broke of pieces for her children. The land has been passed down. (And that's where I live now) there is also a family grave yard where Sadie is buried, egbert is not. Today Sadies orginal house is still on the land but got sold out of the family. There's about 7 families that live in the area on the land she had. For more info email me. I have pictures also I would love to share an info I have. Also I have a public profile on ancestry.com with info.

Bessie was born in Caswell County NC to James L. McKinney and Julia F. Miles. We have traced the McKinney line back a number of generations. If anyone has information regarding this line, I would appreciate hearing from you. We wonder if our search went no further in NC due to the McKinneys moving from VA to NC. We would love to trace the lineage back to arrival in the USA.

My sister Olive contributed to the McKinney Maze in '85and '86. I am now seeking information about my great-great-great-grandfather, Walter McKinnie (1748-1806).

My sister spent many years researching our family tree and published my mother's side, Hill-Wallace Family History, in 1995.

One incident in Olive's research has intrigued me since I first heard her tell the story. It appears on page 152 of her book. In 1756, Josiah McKinnie left his home in Chester Co., PA to settle in Franklin Co., PA. He took part of his family with him, built a cabin, and cleared and planted some land. Then he went back to get the rest of the family, leaving an 8-year old son (Walter) and a daughter on the new land.

After a few days, Walter and his sister, alarmed, packed up and went by themselves back to Chester Co., barely escaping an Indian attack that killed their neighbors. Imagine two little kids like that traveling by themselves through hostile territory!! The distance between Lemasters, PA and West Chester, PA is about 150 miles!

Olive's reference (b) is a letter that Walter wrote to a cousin (Bard McKinnie). On page 157, Olive dates the letter as 1885, but I think she must have meant 1785, as Walter died in 1806. I think I remember Olive saying she saw the letter and perhaps made a copy of it. However she is now advanced in years and we have been unable to locate a copy of this letter.

If anyone can provide any information about the letter, the incident, or details of Walter's life, I would appreciate it. And of course, I would share whatever information I have that you would like.

Sincerely,
Bill Batcher

I am researching my family tree, and believe that Mary Apgar (born around 1805) married John Ranson Brown. Mary would have been the the daughter of Catherine McKinney and William C Pickle Apgar.

I continue to search and get as much accurate data as possible.

Any information would be great.

Hi folks

great site! Im looking for some information on Esther Campbell who married Alexander McKinney Sr in 1750 in Rocksberg VA. Specifically there seems to be conflicting information not only on her birthdate but also am not able to find a death date anywhere. Aslo wanted to clarify Alexanders birthdate as 1734 (have seen 1721 floating around.) Thanks!

I have an old picture that was in the possession of my great-grandmother Julia McKinney Mattox (dau. of William Wallace McKinney and great-granddaughter of Alexander McKinney). Information on the picture says that it is a picture of Julia's niece and her husband--Chris and Josephine Hightshoe. (This was the daughter of Julia's sister Margaret McKinney Sparks.)

I do not know how to send a copy of this photo--I think my husband may be able to scan it. If so, and if you are interested, we will try to send a copy to your site

Interested in parents of and information on William and Frances B. ("Fanny") McKinney of White County, TN.
The McKinney-Price family bible record in Esmeralda Robinson Smith Collection (Box 1, item 22) at Tennessee State Library and Archives shows William McKenney born 4 Jan. 1782, Fanny McKinny born 10 Jan 1791, and William and Fanny McKinney were married 14 October 1808. Children Celia McKinney b. 27 Dec. 1809, Emanuel McKinney b. 1 Jan. 1818, William McKinney b.7 April 1816, Charles McKinney b. 30 Nov. 1819, Thomas James McKinney b.8 May 1829.
William was in White County , TN by 1820 on Calf Killer River, and he and Frances are still in White Co. TN in 1850 and 1860 census . He is listed as born in Virginia, she as NC or SC. Oldest child Celia (b. 1809) consistently shows as hving been born in Virginia. Celia m. James Lewis Price in White Co. in 1824, and after his death in 1846, moved to northwest Georgia south of Chattanooga (Walker/ Catoosa Counties area), where she m 2d 1849 Thomas Napier and 3d 1871 Sam Farrar, dying in 1887. Did she move there because she had McKinney relatives in that area ? There are other McKinney families in White County TN (James, John and Charles W. McKinney appear in 1817 records; John continues in records there to 1840's, but with no obvious connection to William Mckinney) family.

I am trying to find the parents of my gggrandfather, James B. McKinney born 3 Dec 1842 in TN, parents born NC. James married Diana Elizabeth Hanner or possibly Hanna 11 July 1861 (place unknown). He was located in Walker Co. GA in 1870, Washington Co., AR in 1880 and Grayson Co. TX in 1900. James died in Oct 1906 in Grayson Co., TX. We have always been told that we were related to Colin McKinney, but I have not found a connection.

All the dates are from a typed sheet found in my grandmother's papers. This sheet appears to have came from bible records and was probably written by one of James' daughters.

photo # 2 fits the description of Nicholas P. McKinney from the census 1880 of M.McKinney and Dovea . Nicholas P.McKinney is listed with one arm. In 1870 he was not listed with one arm.

Thanks for all the hard work put into providing us the insights and information which previous genologists and family historians have gathered and shared when the McKinney Association was in full bloom. Would like to know on Photos 1 & 2 where the men were suspected of living. This could help in determining the names since the photo were most likely taken in the 1880's or 90's. Also, should anyone need assistance in their hunt of their tree, I might be able to assist in the search...jm

I am looking for descendants of the James McKinney that owned land in Washington Co., VA. The land was located in the area of Washington that was later made a part of Russell Co., VA. They both were part of Augusta Co originally.

1788 - James McKinney, taxpayer of Russell Co, formerly Washington Co (all marriage records prior to 1853 in Russell Co were destroyed)

1793 - John and William McKenney purchase lots sold in newly formed Harrisonburg, Rockingham Co.

1792 - Russell Co land tax, James McKinney, 235 acres

1793 - Personal property tax record James McKinney-1, Johnson McKinney-1 land tax, James McKinney, 235 and 150 acres

1791 - Nov 5, 1791 Joseph McKinney m. Eliza Copely, Montgomery Co A-40

Note: James McKinney continues to appear on the Russell Co tax lists until 1810, when he appears with James McKinney, Jr., William McKinney, John McKinney and Sidney McKinney (exempt because of age).

my greatgrandmother Louisa Kinney was born 1839 pa

I believe Philip Kinney born 1811 was the son of Martin Kinney born 1776 and Magdelena Lichtolin
Philip's father is said to be Jacob Kinney born 1752 NJ
and Catharine Rau
I believe Jacob Kinney 1752 may be the son of Jacob McKinney, born 1719 Raritan NJ
the descendants of Mordecai McKinney book says Jacob went to Northumberland co pa
This is where my family was from- 1850 my greatgrandmother
is living in beaver, union pa which later became snyder co pa
Has anyone found any information about Jacob Mckinney born 1719 and where he lived and died- I have seen battle of White Plains 1776 revolutionary war
also, people have stated he moved from pa to Rowan co NC
another person had died white plains, charles maryland
My greatgrandmother Louisa Kinney married Archibald Middleswarth son of MOses Middleswarth and grandson of Ner Middleswarth whose family goes back to raritan NJ as surname Van Middleswart. I believe their families all knew each other from New Jersey.

I love the way this is done. I can't imagine all the hours and hard work that has gone into this. I've done genealogy for 14 years and it's very hard to figure out who belongs to who. I did notice in the winter 1984 issue vol III #4 page 89 under the Ohio McKinneys they have Daniel McKinney married to Caty Simpson. Typo error I'm assuming. Her name was Catherine (Caty) Sampson(Samson) She was a sister to my ancestor David Samson. I hope you don't mind me pointing that out but I know how hard it is to try and decide if someone is really part of your family when the last name isn't spelled quite right.
Again, love these issues.

I would like to get copies of some of the old newsletters or if you still need help scanning maybe I can be of assistance. I am trying to find my McKinney/McKenney family from Indiana. I know my grandfather's name was Floyd and he married Ida Fleener in Posey County Indiana in 1900, they had children including my grandfather Lawrence and then Floyd and Ida seperated. I am not sure who Floyd is exactly or if he is Robert Floyd, do you have any information with wither of these men. Floyd was born about 1876 in Indiana.

Daughter of Louise McKinney and Alson McGee. Alson died in Civil War. Louise (dau of Fountain and Martha (Moore) McKinney), mar 2nd Charles Adams c 1870. Minerva not with the family in IA, but number of births and living children for Louise in 1900 census would suggest that Minerva was living.
* Minerva and her siblings, Christopher Columbus, and Martha Jane are with their mother and step father living in Dallas County, Iowa. They are listed with the surname Adame [sic] rather than McGee and thus difficult to find.
Hope this will help clear up Minerva. I have the marriages of all three children, if you are interested.

Hi :o) Hoping to find some more McKinney's local to NY. My gg-grandfather was Daniel McKinney, but have lost that track of my family history. Only know his mom was born in Ireland, not sure about his father. Daniel was born around 1875 and died around 1940. Please feel free to email me :)

I am not profecient with computers but I am learning to give it a try.My roadblock was a John Mckinnie in Dallas County Alabama.He had two sisters who married Northington men and many other siblings including Kinchen Mckinnie. I have a will from Dallas Co.Al. lengthing them with siblings in N.C.Everything I have from this John Back I am absolutely sure of with wills obits and graves to back me up. My johns father is where I ran into you.SOoooo many Johns makes things a little more challenging. Thank you for this site. The stories of Mckinneys is the most interesting thing to me. My ggrandmother lived to be 100 y.o.. I am green at this but if any wills I have intresting to you I will be glad to share.

Is there any chance of an issue or article that gives accepted lines of descent, based on what the researchers have learned from the Maze? For example: Mordecai's line, William's Line, etc...

I have found a lot of information in the Maze, but with so many Johns, Williams, and Archibalds floating around, I'm still not sure I am following the right ones.

I know the following information for sure, based on documents.

King McKinney (believed to be William King McKinney II b. 1806 Pulaski Co, KY) Father of William Logan McKinney. this is based on 1950 Paluski Co. Census and a death record of William Logan showing his father King Mckinney and his mother Sarena Pitman. The Certificate lists his grandson Leander McKinney as the informant.

William Logan Had a son named Charles M. McKinney. This information is based on a KY death certificate for Charles M. McKinney showing his father as Wm. L. McKinney and mother as Mary Ann Colliers. This certificate lists Leander McKinney as the informant. a 1900 census for Pulaski Co. also shows William Logan McKinney, wife Mary A. Children: George W., Charles M. William Logan and Mary Ann are both burried in McKinney Cemetery, Rockcastle Co. KY. Note Duke and Mary Colyer (Parents of Mary Ann Colyer?)are buried next to W.L. and M.A. in Mckinney Cemetery.

Charles Mason McKinney had a child Leander McKinney.
This is based on 1900 census showing Charles M., wife Eva and child: Leander. This is the Leander that most likely is listed as witness on the above mentioned death certificates. This is also confirmed by a great aunt (Freda Alcorn) that is still living in Mt. Vernon, KY. She has pictures of Charles and Eva (her grandparents) as well as Leander and Ona Mae McKinney (her parents).

Leander McKinney married Ona Mae Sowder. Their chidlren were Robert Sherman, Alma (Rowe), Zola (Bosserman), Pauline (Decher), Arnella (Alcorn), Freda (Alcorn), Pearl (Childress), Mark, Luke Sr. Nadine (Phelps), Leander Jr who died at birth along with Ona Mae.
Leander married Lucy Osborne which ended in divorce.
Married Mille Bullock (Sowder)
Married Ersie Cummins
Ona Mae, and Millie are burried in McKinney Cemetery next to Leander.
(Note) Leander and Ersie bought plots in Elmwood Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, KY. Leander died first and was buried there, however when Ersie died her family had her buried elsewhere. Later Leander's family had his body moved from Elmwood to McKinney and placed with his other wives.

Luke McKinney Sr. was my grandfather.
His son Luke Jr. is my father
I have a son Joel Isaac

This is all the info I "KNOW" for sure. All else is based on second hand information and trying to piece together pieces from the maze and other sources.

It would be helpful to know if I am on the right track or if I have gotten off track somewhere.

I have the complete line, but it won't let me submit it here. (too long) I would be happy to share it with you if there is a way to get it to you, but again I can't be sure any further back than William Logan McKinney.

My husband and I are having our Thanksgiving dinner at the home of some friends by the name of Pope. Since, according to my records, Elizabeth Pope is the mother of Barna, I was trying to learn more about her. It can be a small world, after all.

I'm very glad to have learned of the McKinney Maze!

I have no idea who their parents are. Some people have posted my info on Anna/Ann to Abiram Byrom McKinney. I can't see the link to him.

Hello: I justed wanted to say that I find this website fascinating, I am amazed at all the work and research that went into it.

I have just recently started researching "my" McKinney Family. I have not had the opportunity to go through this website and research in its intirety. Thus far, I have not seen any names corrolate with my research. Could it be that I am from a totally different McKinney clan?

For the most part, my McKinney information follows those who ended up in DeKalb County Alabama, the Fort Payne, Hudson Mills, Sand Mountain, Lebanon and Collinsville areas. We arrived and stem from Horatio (Rashio, Oratio, Oratis) McKinney sometime between 1840 & 1850ish.

In any event, thank you for posting this wonderful & fascinating website. I hope to find some common ancestry here that will give me more info on Horatio and his fore-fathers.

Sincerely,
Jim McKinney

My Mother was born Frances Romaine McKinney in York , Pennsylvania in 1927. Her Father was Francis Louis McKinney (he went by Frank). He was born in 1889 in Hanover Pa. He was the last of what I believe was 11 children. His Father was Louis McKinney of either Adams or York County Pa. He was born in 1836. That where I have come to a roadblock. My next step is to investigate his Civil War records and then contact Pennsylvania Division of Vital Statistics. He may have had a brother Adam L. McKinney and a sister Emma McKinney. If anyone could help , I would be very grateful. Rick Gibison.

Hello--I have been really into doing my family tree. I am just starting the McKinney branch of this big tree. I do not know where to start, I have limited information. If I tell you what I have maybe you can guide me where to go next for the answers I need.

My mother's maiden name is McKinney, her full name at birth is Estella Nancy Jean McKinney (she dropped the Estella later in life) Her parents: Frank McKinney and Virginia Jarrell, their children: Estella Nancy Jean DOB 08-07-1943, Frank Jr., Opie, Herman, George Thomas. Frank's parents were Opie McKinney and Elma Browning, their children: Frank, Mary, Gladys, Wilburn, Willard, Don. Can you tell me how I can get the information I need? I am also limited on money, very limited, and everyplace I think I found information at requires a subscription. I know that both McKinney and Jarrell were abundant in Boone County and Logan County WV. Also, on the Jarrell side there are family members that are full blooded Cherokee. How can I find information on Indian ancestry in VA and WV? I keep coming to dead ends.

Thank you so much,
Roberta Collins

Looking for information on McKinneys living in NC/VA from 1800-1850 - to see if I can find links to my progenitor John Bingman (b 1777 - MD) and Winifred (abt 1780 - VA). His daughter Mary (Polly) born about 1810 married 9 November 1827 (Stokes or Surry County) to Aaron McKinney (he married again to Lydia Norman after Polly died). I believe Aaron was the son of Shadrack McKinney. Aaron signed (X) surety bond for marriage of John Bingman Jr to Nancy Fritter 20 December 1832 (Surry or Stokes County NC). Aaron and Polly's children were Allen, Alfred, Henderson, Eli H and Mary Jane. I think they were more than just neighbors as Henderson McKinney may have been named after Henderson Bingman (b. 1822#. Allen, Alfred and Henderson went to Dallas County Iowa and story has it Allen went on to seek fortune in California and was killed at the Mountain Meadows massacre. John Jr shows up in Dallas County Iowa at the same time period in the next county over #Madison# from the McKinneys where Aaron and Eli sign petition to create town of Earlan Iowa #about 15 miles west of Des Moines. Somehow John Jr took a detour and was in Marion County Indiana circa after 1836-1850's. John Jr's son William was born 1835 in NC but next two children Francis J and Maria were born in Indiana (1837 and 1846). John Sr had a son named Eli (b 1816) a futher indication of a close relationship. Also the 1850 Surry County NC census shows a Alfred McKinney, age 18, living with John Sr age 73 and Winifred age 70.

Anyone with any information on the McKinneys in NC and VA during the period from 1800-1850 would be appreciated especially roots/migration of Aaron McKinney and his father Shadrack.

A great effort putting together so much information. It's almost imposible to comprehend all of it. I have found many of my ancestors here all the way back to Henry McKinney (died approximately 1774). His brother (John McKinney) and wife (Elizabeth McDowell) adoped all Henry's children (one of which is my 4th great grandfather).

Happy Saint Patricks Day,

I am originally from Doniphan, Ripley County, Missouri and am a descendant of the the South East Missouri Branch of The McKinney Clan.

My McKinney relatives are of Irish ancestry and were Methodist. They were businessmen and farmers. They lived in and around Grandin, Macedonia, Doniphan and the Shiloh/Little Black River area,(between Grandin, Missouri and Doniphan, Missoui).

When researching our family lines look at Carter County and Ripley County Missouri.

Other names connected to my direct family line are: Odom, Emmons, Sharp, McKinney, Clark, Borth, Jones, Williams, and others.

My great grandfather was John Henry McKinney, born 18 November 1865 in Carter County, Missouri. He died September 19, 1945 in Ripley County, Missouri. He is buried in the Macedonia Cemetary off of O Highway in Ripley County, Missouri.

My great grandmother was Nancy Jane Sharp from the Odom/Emmons/Sharp family lines, also of Ripley County, Missouri. She is buried in the Doniphan Cemetary.

John Henry McKinney and Nancy Jane Sharp were married August 4, 1889 in Ripley County, Missouri. John Henry McKinney and Nancy Jane Sharp had four children, Stella, Orson, Ada and Inez.

Inez Bonita McKinney was my grandmother. She married John Elic Borth also of Ripley County, Missouri. He was of German ancestry. They had three children, two sons and one daughter. Inez McKinney Borth and John Elic Borth are buried in the Oak Grove Cemetary, off of Highway 21, in Ripley County, Missouri.

I am new to geneaology. I really appreciate finding your web site and another possible link to my family line.

Thanks,
Rhonda

Recent DNA testing by the Family Tree DNA Kinney group, has proven beyond any doubt, that James McKinney (Mary Ballard) of Surry Co., North Carolina has no relationship with the Mordecai McKinney lineage. Those who are seeking a connection would be advised to begin research on James' parents, etc. beyond the New Jersey sphere. Personally, I am revisiting Virginia origins for James McKinney.

A Google search for the name Goudge came up with your site as other names associated with the McKinney name (around 1790). I have been trying to find where my ancestor Thomas Goudge came from. He was born in 1745 and I know he was in New York in 1780. Do you have any records where the Goudges in your family lived?
I also have McKinneys in my family tree, however, they came in by mariage about 1924. If interested I can provide details.

I am related to the McKinneys - our Joseph Jessup B 22 Mar 1767 Perquimans NC D 9 Sep 1820 Westfield Surry Co NC married Betty McKinney B 3 Dec 1772 Surry Co NC. Her father was James McKinney B 1750 Hepburnville, Lycoming PA D 1824 Surry Co NC. His father was Joe McKinney B 3 Jan 1714 Hunterden, Somerset NJ D 1772 Sunberry Gates NC.

I was researching my ancestor John Bingman B 1777 MD and his wife Winifred and came across a reference to them in your Winter 1984 publication, specifically, under Lineage of Howard W. McKinney IL. They were listed as #34 and #35 under the lineage. Can anyone provide me with any information on them - it would be greatly appreciated? Thank you - Philip Neal Brandt

You have no idea how happy I was the day I discovered "The McKinney Maze" I applaud your efforts in creating such a fine research aid and I thank you for all of the help it has been to me and mine.

My family line is as follows:
Charles McKinney m. Marianne Chastain
dau. Judith McKinney m. David Lawrence
dau. Mary Ann Lawrence m. Richard West Bourne
dau. Judith Ann Bourne m. William Hendrix
dau. Ellen Jane Hendrix m. David McCormack Ward
son Maurice Vernon Gray Ward m. Mary Gladys Murray (my grandparents)
There is much information on the Chastain line... but I cannot seem to find much information on the ancestors of Charles McKinney. The McKinney's seem to have inter-married with several of the huguenot line from Manakin Town, Virginia. But I cannot find Charles Mckinney's ancestors.
Anyone reading this with information please feel free to contact me.
Thank you again for all of your efforts over the years and this fine research tool.

I have just started researching my family history on my mother's side. Back through the early 1700's they were concentrated in the Stokes, Surry, Westfield areas of NC. Joseph Jessup B 22 Mar 1767 Perquimans Co D 9 Sep 1820 Westfield Surry Co married Betty McKinney B 3 Dec 1772 Westfield Surry Co. I don't know if she is related to your McKinney's or not but I have traced the Jessup's back to England and forward to current if anyone needs/wants that information.

Uriah was in the Mexican War and Civil War.

Pension record states he "may be" from Bedford Co.,TN.

Fannin Co. is near where the Collin McK's lived, have never been able to connect him with that family. He appears connected with the Rollin/Roland McK in Milam Co.

Cave Springs, Mo., that I knew as a small boy in the late 1940s and very early 50s no longer exists -- no town, people, buildings, etc.
My grandmother told me of a young girl named McKinney who was murdered there. I recently checked on Ancestry.com and found the 1930 federal census for Cave Springs District in Mo. -- Belle Center Road to Kansas State Line. It lists Ibby McKinney, 21, from Virgina. I imagine this is her, and the murder happened not long after. Does anyone know details?

Researching Matthew McKinney of Scotland, Ireland and New Jersey. He went west about 1769 and acquired land in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, known as Rostraver or the New Jersey settlement. The land was transferred to Elizabeth, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania in 1788. It later became Forward Twp., Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

We have a common ancestor, Moses McKinney. Here is my website: http://www.gencircles.com/users/billymck/9/data/9683

I have run into a roadblock on the Mercer McKinney side. There is an older connection between Mercer and Moses that has not been found. Thanks.

This is a wonderful wealth of info. So much and yet I still need help! I am looking for any clue as to where my McKinney's came from. Am looking for William McKinney or McKiney or Kinney. Wife was Mary Dobbs born in 1822 SC. He was said to be born in North Carolina, but some census record say SC or Georgia. His known children were born in SC and Georgia. James Thomas was born 1854 in SC, William born in SC 1857, Sarah Ellen was born in 1848 in SC--married Frank Thomas Gregory, born in SC.
Mary is listed as a widow in Gwinnett county Ga living with Sarah and Frank in 1870. Then again in Cobb--(Marietta, Kennesaw area) county GA with them again. Next door is a John McKinney--I think is her son. The family has always been close friends of the Wilsons family and was said to move from place to place together. This is all I have of our previous McKinneys. Hope
