The McKinney Family Association & Library was founded September, 1981 as a non-profit, educational association and library, dedicated to researching, preserving and collecting historical and family history and data, not necessarily all of lineal or legal families, but all those interested in the McKinney surname and variants and to assist and instruct in genealogical research and to publish private and public records and educational articles. Bylaws and Constitution adopted October 1981 and granted non profit, incorporation 3 May 1983 by the State of Oklahoma. Trustees are Barbara Pannage Stanfield, E. Neil Stanfield and Richard A. Kipf.

From The Editor's Notes


Announcing something new. Barbara Stanfield has compiled all the member's notes, research, families and assorted miscellaneous information from our files, into a more than 100 page notebook, loose leaf format, and in a binder, for sale to our members at $5.00 each. It will be photocopied as ordered, and is a new service for the association. She is also busy at work on additional research notebooks for some of our other states, including much material available for Texas. Her proof copy has been reviewed by the Editor and found to be awesome. If you are researching McKinneys in Ohio, I highly recommend this work. Kudos to Barbara for her extensive and time consuming work. Only those of us who have struggled with hand-written material received on legal paper scratch, 3x5 cards, backs of envelopes and various other styles, can fully appreciate the work involved. Write Barbara for details and ordering information.


Regretfully, we must abolish the $7.50 magazine subscription. The rising costs of paper, printing and postage make it necessary to raise the cost of the magazine to $10.00 per year. Those currently subscribing at the $7.50 rate will continue to receive their magazine until renewal time. New subscribers will be advised of the $10.00 per year rate.


Smithsonian Magazine has awarded the Association a complimentary three-month subscription/membership to their publication and we are excited about that. We would only wish that we would receive their Sep 1986 issue as a part of the complimentary issues as it contained an excellent article on the Domesday Book. I would hope that some member will be kind enough to clip and save it for our library. As soon as the publication arrives, it will be available in our library for all members (after the Editor reads it first, however!).




We were saddened to hear of the passing of Neal Blythe McKinney, a member of our association for some years. Mr. McKinney, a retired sales representative with the Standard Register Company in McLean, VA, died Apr 11, 1986 at St. Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown, MD. Mr. McKinney was a veteran of World War II, a Mason and a member of the Quantico chapter of the Fourth Marine Division Association. He leaves his wife, Eva Pardoe McKinney, daughter Joan M. Walker of KY, and Pam M. Howe of Compton, MD; three sons, Neal P., John F. and Clark T.; his mother, Mrs. Azilee King McKinney of MD, and two brothers, John D. and Harold P. Our sympathies are extended to Mrs. McKinney, we will miss his informative and interesting letters.




Be sure to read the back pages of our quarterly, our Treasurer, Peter McKinney, has planned a new computer project for members, and it is exciting. Be sure to get your cards mailed to Peter before December 15th. Peter has also suggested placing all the ten generation family charts in a binder for loan to members, a good suggestion and we shall prepare it for library loan.

We have been advised that the Gale Research Company in Minneapolis, MN, will be listing our quarterly in a new edition of the Newsletters Directory, to be published in the near future, watch for it.



The Sun, Bremerton, WA, 11 Mar 1986: Mary 'Mamie' McKinney was born the same year as opera superstar Enrico Caruso and was approaching middle age when Halley's comet passed by the earth in 1910. Now 112, she might be the oldest person in the world, say officials for the Guinness Book of World Records. Her great age is attested to by a baptismal certificate in a musty record book in the Catherdral of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Sacramento, CA – Mary Elizabeth Wallace, born May 30, 1873, baptized the following October. When Shigechiyo Izumi, previously recognized as the world's oldest person died in Feb at the age of 120 in Japan, the book named the new title-holder with verifiable documents as Anna Eliza Williams of Wales, born Jun 2, 1873, but Guiness officials now recognize Mrs. McKinney as the world's oldest living person.

Additions to our New Jersey Time – Line . . . . (Maze, Winter, 1984)



David and Mary Mackeney sold land patent in Piscataway Township to Samuel Moore. (Land on Whitewood Hill and at Raritan Meadows)



George McKinney of London owned land in Perth Amboy. This, the same George Mackenzie, later Viscount of Tarbet (Kintyre Peninsula of Scotland), was described as 'Mackenny' in the Proprietor's Minutes of East Jersey. It seems 'Mackenny, Mackany, and Mackenzie' were inter-changeable in that time period.



Scotch Plains settled by settlers from Scotland near Westfield, a branch of the Piscataway Presbyterian Church. No mention of a McKinney or variant family in surviving notes or in the history of Westfield Church.



George Mackeny (Mackenzie ?) of Kildomin had share of proprietory, 300 acres of land on the Falls River, a mile above Col. Morris' iron works.

A correspondent in Northern CA has given me some information regarding the Opedycke Genealogy published in 1889. She obtained the book on inter-library loan from the State Library in Salem, OR, but could photocopy or send the book to the Editor. Some of our members have been requesting this volume, and they may try obtaining it from the Salem Library. It was interesting to note (in our telephone conversation), that a Marie ?, a French girl who supposedly eloped with a stable hand named McKinney settled in Staten Island and then removed to NJ. It was not explained in the text what a McKinney was doing in France, however, it was their daughter, Hannah McKinney or Kinney, b ca 1750, who married Reeder Stout, and their daughter, who married George Opedycke in 1776. From this, it can be assumed that 'Marie' probably married ca 1750, and

was probably born ca 1721 – 1730. If any member is able to obtain a copy of this genealogy, the Editor would appreciate further information. My correspondent indicated that this was the only Kinney/McKinney listed in the text or indexed.


The National Genealogy Society quarterly, Dec, 1965, p 303 – 304 contains some interesting entries concerning the Morris family bible. The family record of David Hamilton Morris, born in Morris Co., NJ in 1769, and wife, Eve Ann Sailor were married in 1803, presumably in Montgomery Co., OH. Their son, Ezra Elston Morris, born Aug 29, 1804 in OH, married Elizabeth McKinney, Jan 19, 1826 in Miami Co. Bible printed in 1828 by Azor Hott, and published by N. Bangs and J. Emory, New York City. Elizabeth is not further identified in the record pages. This same issue contains an article of the Crafford family of New River, NC and mentions that Richard Melton witnessed a deed for Wm. Crafford of Onslow Co., and was of the Andrew Ireland family in Bertie Co. The Ireland family was found in early Somerset Co., MD whence came the McCamiey family of the Waxhaws, one of whom, George McCamiey, married Margaret Hutchinson, eldest of six Hutchinson sisters whom it is said came from Ireland alone to join her husband in the Waxhaws – it might be productive to speculate that a daughter in the Ireland family of Somerset and Bertie was the mother of the six Hutchinson sisters of the Waxhaws. James Crafford's wife was Jennet Hutchinson. This item was included for those who are researching the McKinney/Chastain family connections, since it was said that George and Margaret McCamiey were parents of Charles McKinney?

Recent application papers can sometimes help in contacting other family members, but do not give family earlier than the Revolutionary ancestor.

Pennsylvania Research Notes


Recently, we had the opportunity to visit a distant library for the first time in many years, and since time was limited we attempted to do as much research as possible in the shortest amount of time – always a mistake. The following material was extracted from Pennsylvania Vita Records, Volumes I – III, Genealogical Publishing Company, 1985. Needless to say, the time required to photocopy needed pages from a single machine, 'taking turns' with other patrons, and finally, a machine breakdown just ten minutes before closing hours precluded getting full, complete, and proper citations. In other words, the material here presented is complete as far as all McKinney/McKenney surnames extracted from the three volumes and index, but certain vital chapter titles, locations and other explanatory material was omitted. I plead nolo contender.

George C. McKinney Family – Pike Co., IL George G. McKinney


George C. McKinney (1822-1906) married Elizabeth Burkhead in Pike Co. on Jul 18, 1844. She was born in OH 11 May 1823 and died 27 Sep 1902. Elizabeth is buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery near Mt. Carmel, south of Vandalia, MO. George C. McKinney is probably buried there, too. There is an existing headstone for Elizabeth, but none for George. George and Elizabeth had the following children, all born in Pike Co.:

John, ca 1845

William D., 1847

Nelson M., ca 1849

George W., ca 1851

Mary Frances, ca 1854

Anna, ca 1856

Thomas, ca 1861

Rachel, ca 1864

Sarah Matilda, ca 1865


In addition, Melissa Jane was born in MO, 3 Sep 1865. George's will states that he had always considered her to be his daughter, born out of wedlock to a woman not his wife. She received an inheritance of $500; William D. and Mary Frances were left $10 each. I am seeking to prove that my ancestor, William, who would have been the second William in the family was also born out of wedlock, while the first child named William was still living. I am seeking the parents/siblings of George C. McKinney, as well as the name of the mother of Melissa Jane and William. According to the 1910 Federal Census, the mother of George C. was born in Scotland. Following are some census records pertaining to this family:

Library News – Reviews Karen McKinney


We wish to thank member Barbara Maybury for her recent donation of Wes Cochran's 1860 Census of Ritchie Co. We have also received another new North Carolina reference, and have upgraded our library loan catalog for inclusion with the new member's packets. The complete library listing of books for loan will be included in the next issue, Winter 1986.



Haywood County North Carolina Families, Alice R. Cook, Heritage Books, Bowie, MD 1986, soft cover, cross indexed, 166pp, $12.50


Published in a genealogical dictionary format, this could have been a much greater research help in Haywood Co. with a little more pertinent data. For instance, many citations of families give no dates at all, leaving the reader wondering just when the death, birth or marriage occurred. For instance:


Hall – m and had sons, BW; Henry; JC; EA; Turner; Willis; Robert.


Other entries are more complete, however many of them give no location or place within the county, and in the case of a common name such as Hall, the locale could be vital in identifying different branches of the same family. The researcher, in order to utilize this work, would already have much identifying information on a family if he were to add to his knowledge – not for the general researcher, this would be used as an adjunct to data already acquired.


Several new volumes are available from different members who are willing to search, or photocopy. Among those are New England Marriages Prior to 1700, Torry, and Passenger Arrivals, Port of Philadelphia, Tepper. Contact the Editor for further information.


Gladys Z. McKinney, 82, who worked for the army corps of engineers for 37 years before retiring in 1964, died Apr 7, 1986 at George Washington University Hospital. Miss McKinney taught school in her native Montana, and began her government career in 1927. Survivors include two brothers, Sterling R. McKinney of Culbertson, MT, and Howard A. McKinney of Helena, MT. Two sisters also survive, Ethel Twedt of Seattle, Washington and Betty Lou Seiler of Pleasanton, CA.

Miscellaneous Bits and Pieces



North Carolina, The Reverend John Roan's Account Book, 1745-1775. John Roan was pastor of the 'New Side' Presbyterian congregation at Paxtang, Derry and Conewago all near Harrisburg, PA. Most of these families moved south on the Great Wagon Road to VA and NC, hence the inclusion of 'North Carolina' in our title. One entry concerns us:


John McKinny, made a total of 12.15.0 from 30 Jan 1746/1747 to 10 Jun 1749 with one payment 'by J. Carr Senr.'. From 23 Oct 1752 to 25 Sep 1756, 'his widow pd'. (p 68). Taken from North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Volume VII, No. 2.

Hollingsworth; Ruth Priscilla; Mary Eunice; Macie Elizabeth; Lucy A.; Gordon; Minnie; Dudley; Lebbie; Flavius A.; Jonathan H. Jr.; Pearl; William Franklin; Mattie. The Aldermans lived near Berlin, South Georgia, were Methodists. Probably married in Berrien Co., GA.


The Brazen Overlanders of 1845, Donna M. Wojcik, 1976. p77, Rachael (wife of Cornelius) McKinney talks about four friends, Ellen Wooley, Mary Thetherow, Isabell Miller and herself and their experience on the wagon train in 1845, headed for Oregon. Rachel was living in 1914. Henry Ann McKinney, the daughter of Walter (William) gave an interview regarding the trip in 1908. Henry Ann died in Sep of that year. William Walter was accompanied on the trip by his nephew Charles McKinney, brother in law Anderson Cox and a friend, Pascal Smith. The membership lists accompanying the text (apparently a pioneer association list) give descendants as follows:


Melba Butts, dau of John Butts (1810-1890) born in West Pendleton Co., VA, died in Forest Grove, OR. Melva's mother was Catherine Butts, who died descending the hill to the Deschutes River in 1845, she is buried on the Conroy ranch in Wasco Co., Oregon.

Daniel and Collin McKinney in Virginia


For some time it has been apparent that much needs to be done to prove that the Daniel and Collin McKinney who located in Washington Co., VA, were the same of the name as those attributed to Mordecai McKinney's family in NJ. Mrs. Rosalie Jackson has been doing extensive research and has submitted the following information. For those who descend from this line, the dates of birth of some of the children would seem to be highly speculative. For instance, the fact that James Collin or Collin would have been only 15 or 16 years of age at the birth of his first attributed child. The included citations have not yet solved any of the outstanding questions, but it is hoped that they will help to prove/disprove some of the misinformation that researchers have been dealing with.
