The McKinney Maze


Newsletter of The McKinney Family Association



Fall - 1982

Vol. 1, #3



Founded, September 1981 as a non-profit, educational association and library, dedicated to researching, preserving and collecting historical and family data.  To assist and instruct in genealogical research and to publish private and public records and educational articles. Bylaws and Constitution adopted October 1981.


Officers:             Barbara Pannaqe Stanfield, Coordinator

                            Annabel McKinney Rowe, Treasurer

      Patricia McKinney Kirkwood, Secretary-Editor


Manuscripts, family records and other material are always appreciated. Researchers whose material has been used in this and the pre­ceding issues are:  Mabel Johnson, Willa Sorenson, Barbara Stanfield, Dorothy Theurer and many others.





This third issue of our quarterly will list Virginia material (so much material is available that the Carolinas will have to be given in the Winter issue), research reports from two researchers, queries, book review repeat, new books for our lending library, and other miscellaneous materials. We have been honored to have been requested to submit the quarterly to the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS, which makes one feel that we "have arrived'. We continue to request non—profit standing, however, the State of California has refused us on the basis of "not being of service to the general public'. We have applied for the same standing in the State of Oklahoma, but as of this issue have not resolved the problem. In order to overcome the California requirements, we might consider expanding into a general genealogical periodical, and the Editor would like to hear from the members on this proposal.


Our book loan program has been successful to date, and I would like to see an expansion of the program adding quarterlies and other relevant materials. Unfortunately, this editor has not had the opportunity to further expand on the matching of family groups, but plan to do so as time allows. Wilma Cook has volunteered to index our newsletters, the result of which will be published in the Spring of 1983 issue. Many thanks to Wilma!


One of our members has expressed the desire to have a professional researcher in Virginia.  When the New Jersey and New York sources are exhausted, we will engage someone to do research in Virginia and the Carolinas, and points South, as we further trace the migrations of this family. Thorough research does take time, and we are limited to the requirements of each person's time; we would like results, of course, but must remember that some of us have been searching for ten or more years. Hopefully, this wait will not take as much time!

RESEARCH REPORT: Dr. John Anderson July, 1982


Items researched:  Bureau of Archives & History, Rutgers Special Collections, New Jersey Historical Society, Somerset Courthouse, Middlesex Courthouse, Piscatawaytown Book, Somerset County Historical Quarterly, Story of An Old Farm and other materials.


Item 1:      In Mellick's STORY OF AN OLD FARM, one citation tends to show a connection between the Peapack grants and Kinny, Scotland. (Note: I have checked all maps available to me plus Smith's Gazeteer of Scotland, and have not been able to pinpoint the location. Help?)

Dr. Anderson also notes that the dearth of information on Mordecai in the Somerset Co. records may be that the courthouse was burned in October 1777.


Item 2:      Docket of Jacob VanNoarstrand, 2 May 1774 - Mordecai Mackinney v. Peter Dumon Logrange, debt.  Def. appeared & states he paid same to Dirck Morlat, one of the executors of estate of William Mackinney, and has his receipt. Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, Vol. 44, No. 40


Item 3: St. James Lutheran Churchyard, Greenwich Township Tombstones:  McKinney, Wyckoff, no dates, also stones for William & Margaret McKinney, with no other inscription. ibid., 44., No. 223


Item 4:      Return of Marriages in the Township of Oxford, County of Warren, State of New Jersey, from the 1st day of June 1875 to the 1st day of June 1876.

No. 27:      William McKinney of Broadway to Alice Prall of Oxford

Feb. 16th       William age 26, Alice, age 26

Married by John F. Pollock, Minister, Oxford

Parents:      John and Mary McKinney

William and Elizabeth Prall, now Mrs. Hartung

Vol. BQ, p. 407., Marriages


Item 5:      (All following, from the Somerset Co. Historical Quarterly) THE WHITAXER FAMILY OF SOMERSET COUNTY, ÒMary Brown also remarried, her second husband being Ebenezer White of whom I know nothing except that his daughter. Susan married Stephen Whitaker, a grandson of Jonathan, and their daughter Susan married Alexander Finley, a brother of Rev. Robert for many years pastor of the Basking Ridge Presbyterian Church, and became the mother of several children, one of whom, ELISA, married Rev. DAVID MCKINNEY, D.D., who attained considerable prominence in Penn."

NOTES ON THE WYCOFF FAMILY: 7th Generation (4) John m Margaret - - On Aug. 20, 1786, John and Margaret his wife sold to Michael KINNEY, 63 acres, part of a farm inherited from his father, Nicholas, on Holland Brook. Of him I have no further trace, except that he had one son baptized in Readington, viz.: John, baptized Feb. 14, 1773.





It is certain John had other children, but their names have not been ascertained.  He still lived in Readington in 1805. He and his wife are buried in Readington churchyard (old ground).

Letter from Jeromus Vanderbilt VanDoren to Charles Corle, 1831: Issaac MCKINNEY has moved to Ohio. He might as well come here unless he was out of soap when he got in Ohio. Please inform me what kind of circumstances he started with, and what was his place of destination.


Entries that were duplications of those we already have were omitted. We are now waiting for the results of inquiries Dr. Anderson has made to the Holland Soc. of New York, and New York Society.  KINNE references were included, as it will be noticed in the Andrew Johnston Journal entries (given in Petty's work), that Kinne, McKinney and Kinney were used interchangeably for the same persons. It well may be that there is a relationship between the German Kinne, Kinnan, Canaan and McKinney families.


In a recent article on Dutch naming systems, it was noticed that the Dutch naming system used the sponsors of baptisms as given names, and that second given or "middle' names were not used at all until well into the 1740's. As an example, the eldest son of Mordecai, Jan, was sponsored by Jan Roeloff Sebering and wife.




Return to top of page

Jacob McKinney baptized in 1719 was sponsored by Jacob and Josyntie Sebering.  Daniel (1717) was sponsored by Daniel Sebering and wife.


William (Jacob Bodyn and wife), Ann, (Hanse & Aeltje Sebering), David (Pedus Kinne and Ida Wilms Kinne), and Mordecai (Daniel Sebering and Kaetje Vroom), do not seem to fall into the pattern, however.  Further, the New Englanders used more Biblical names, as Mordecai certainly was, and in some of Clara McKinney Redell's work, she mentions that tradition in her family held that the McKinneys came into this country through Massachusetts . . food for thought!

ABRIAM (Abram, Byron, Byram) MCKINNEY


           From all available sources, Abriam McKinney was a native of Virginia, wife, Mary  .  .  First record is of land conveyance from James Wyley (Wiley) to BYRAN McKinney for 105 acres adjoining Benjamin Davis and James Wiley, recorded in Book 3, p. 5, dated 27 April 1813 in Lee County, Virginia.  Abriam McKinney and wife Mary conveyed following tracts in Virginia as indicated:


Deed Book 3, p. 296, dated 4 Sept. 1816, ABRAM McKinney of Lee County to Absolom Ticle (Tickle) for $300, land on both sides of Powell's River being 100 acres part of the tract Newton conveyed to him.  Deed signed by Abram and Mary who both made their marks.


Deed Book 3, p. 304, ABRIAM McKinney and wife Mary of Lee County sell land to Beal Davis, the tract purchased from James Wyley.  The deed was signed by Beal Davis, the tract purchased from James Wyley.  The deed was signed by Abriam McKinney and Mary his wife with their marks.  $600.


Deed Book 3, p. 306, 21 Sept. 1816, ABRIAM McKinny and Mary of Lee Co. sold to SHADRICK MCKENNY of the same place for $300, 200 acres on Powells River, it being part of a tract conveyed to Reston and Newton containing 500 acres, again signed with their marks.





           Abriam McKinney settled on the Illinois River bottom in Richwoods Twp., 1820, but in October 1821, having entered land on section 23 he removed thither, where he lived until 1822 when he removed to section 24 (the latter two sections in English Twp., where he did die in the year 1840).


           Richwoods Twp., Jersey Co., the first house built by John Gunterman on Sec. 5 in March, 1820.  Among others who settled the same year were Luther Calvin, John Medford, Byron McKinney and John Smith.  (Jersey Co. was part of Greene Co. until 1839).  Abiram's daughter Melinda, married John Gunterman.  Editor:  It would seem to me that this is clear evidence of the relationship between Byram McKinney and brother, Shadrack who lived in Lee county, Virginia.  Byram was dismissed from Westfield MM in 1795.  Shadrack was dism from Westfield in 1804, and died in Lee Co. 20 May 1841.

           John McKinney, Jr., emigrated from the neighborhood of Mt. Airy, North Carolina, into this section while it was still part of Washington County, some time between the years 1785 and 1800.  He settled on what is now known as Red Hills, near the village of Pattonsville, Virginia.  He acquired a large landed estate and undertook the growth of cotton on a large scale with the many slaves he had brought with him from North Carolina.  The climate of this section, however, not being suited to the successful growth of cotton, he directed his attention to the cultivation of tobacco.  He grew tobacco on a large scale and manufactured it into cigars and plug tobacco.  He also planted large apple and peach orchards on different parts of his large plantation.  It is thought that he sustained a close and familiar relationship with Daniel Boone, if not a kinsman, as the following letter found among his papers seems to disclose:


"Tuscaloosa Co., Alabama"


"Dear Brother Sister I once more Right you a few lines to inform you that wee ar all well at this time onoy muself I have ben Down about tow month and am very sik at this time wee have Received a letter from our Dauter at Brother James they are all well at that time you have Rot to mee concerning my part of that land I dont know hardly what to Right.  I am willing to take Sixty Dollars for my part but I dont how I am to get from  here to their after it I am in great need of it but propey wont sute  mee if you have a mind to giv mee that and can send it to me by the mail it will obled mee very mch.  So nothing more only Remains

                                                            Your Friend Daniel Boone"





           It is thought that reports of the country made by Boone, who came from an adjoining county in North Carolina, influenced McKinney to settle in this section.  In 1804 he was appointed Captain of militia for Lee Co. by the Governor of Virginia.  He represented the county of Lee in the General Assembly of Virginia from 1806-1809.  When Scott Co. was organized, he was a member of the first court, and in September, 1815, he was the ruling magistrate or chairman of the county court.  In 1815 and 1816, he was appointed Commissioner of the Revenue for the North Side.  In 1816, he qualified to celebrate the rites of matrimony.  In 1818 and again in 1824, he was made school commissioner for the school district in which he lived.  In 1819 and 1820 he qualified as sheriff of the county.  It is said that while living in the same house, he was sheriff for Lee County and then later sheriff of Scott Co. when it was formed.


           In partnership with W. H. Carter and a Mr. Osborne, he discovered and made salt at what is now known as Blackwater, Virginia.  In many of his papers, in excellent state of preservation, and in possession of his descendants, some of them date back to the year 1775 and show a wide range of business transactions.  He leaves no descendants in this section bearing his name, branches of the Morrison, Harris, Young and Carter families are descended from him.  He died in 1824 or 1825 and he and his wife are buried in an unmarked grave on Red Hills, about one mile south of Pattonsville.  She died in 1840.

Note: John's wife was probably Elizabeth Young as found in other records in Lee County and in material that Ross Harris compiled.  Unfortunately, the material is missing . . can anyone help locate?

           William Overlin of Cumberland Rev. War soldier, married in 1787, Leticia McKinney






By Mrs. Daphne M. Brownell


           In a HISTORY OF VENEANGO COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA,  published 1890, it states that John McKinney was a soldier in the American Revolution, emigrated from the north of Ireland and settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania where he reared a family.  From a DAR application paper dated 1966, information states that John was a volunteer in the Continental Army as a private.  He was on the payroll of Captain Andrew Lang's company of the 1st Battalion of the Rifle Regiment in the service of the Province of Penn. commanded by Daniel Broadhead.  He enlisted on 10 April 1776 and was quartered in camp near King's Bridge in the militia, 5th class of 4th Battalion, Chester Co. militia, Capt. John Rowland.  The application paper lists his children as:  Anthony, Samuel (Rachel McKinney), Mary (Thomas Fulton), Susan.


           An archival record in the LDS records gives the information that John McKinney was the son of James Collin McKinney and Sarah Boone, and in his record are additional children:  Isaac, Henry, John.  A little information about John McKinney, Mary Llewellyn and their son Samuel, who married Rachel McKinney (also her name before marriage) follows:


           Children that I have researched are:


Margaret (1785), 14 May, d 31 Sep 1859, age 74-4-17, married John Fulton in 1771, who died 2 May 1855, age 84.  Their dates of death and ages are given on their headstones at Lick Run Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Jacksonville (formerly Walker), Centre Co., PA


Samuel, b 31 Oct. 1786, d 20 Sep. 1871, Salem City, Venango Co. PA married Rachel McKinney, dau of John McKinney and Elizabeth Dunn, b May 1799, d 1 March 1895, Salem City, Venango Co. PA


Susan, b 13 April 1790, d 6 Jul 1877, 87-2-23, buried Advent Church Cemetery, Boggs, Centre Co., PA.  Susan died unmarried, she was living with the John Fulton family in the 1850 census.  Her dates were copied from records of Mrs. Spengler at the public library in Bellefonte, Co. seat of Centre Co., PA.


           Rachel McKinney was described as Òbeing of Sunbury, Pennsylvania'.  Samuel and Rachel were the parents of twelve children:  Rebecca (dec'd in 1890), John of Nebraska; Isaac (dec'd); Margaret (Joseph Chambers) of Rockland Twp.; Mary J. (Dr. Edwin Oppeelt) of Loogootee, IN; Louisa dec'd wife of Benjamin McGee; Macada; Samuel H.; Charles B. of Bradford; Alvina; Imelda, wife of Andrew Gates of Emlenton; Henrydec'd.  Samuel and Rachel lived in Cranberry Township from 1833 to date.  Previously he had lived in the Nittanny Valley where he farmed and operated a fulling mill.


           Rachel McKinney was born in Northumberland Co. in May 1799.  Her father, John, was a colonel in the state militia at the time of her birth.  Her mother, Elizabeth Dunn was the daughter of William Dunn, general of the War of the Revolution.  On the first of May 1816, Rachel McKinney was married to Samuel.  Although both came of IRISH ancestry, their fathers bearing the same given as well as surname, they were not known to have been related.





           John Fulton who married Margaret McKinney, daughter of John and Mary, was probably the son of James Fulton.  James Fulton's will, which was written in 1811, stated that he was a resident of Walker, PA, the will being proven in 1815.


The 1850 Federal Census of Pennsylvania, Centre County, Walker Township:

           John Fulton, age 87 (incorrect), b PA

           Margaret Fulton, age 67, b PA (Margaret McKinney)

           Mary Fulton, age 44, b PA

           Jane Fulton, age 15, b PA

           John Fleming, age 15, b PA

           Susan McKinney, age 60, b PA

"In my opinion, there should be an item published to the effect that the Hannah "Fenwick" shown in Nelson's ÒNew Jersey Marriage Records" is indeed Hannah TenEyck, in fact, in his index by brides, he shows the same entry as:


Tenick, Hannah, Somerset, and William Mackeny, Somerset 1749 Aug. 7, p. 403.  There are no ÒFenwicks' in either index, except for this one unfortunate error.


In the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record (Vol. LXIII, 1932), pp 152-164 the article, "The TenEyck Family in New York", contains the family group of Jacob TenEyck and Jacomynthien (Jemima) VanNest, wherein appears their daughter Annetje, bap 20 Dec. 1730, Readington NJ.  In the Warren County NJ Cemetery list:  Hanna McKinney (wife of William McKinney) d 18 Mar 1765, age 34.5.21 (estimated birth 27 Sep 1730).  The will of Jacob TenEyck of Somerset Co., NJ names among other children his daughter Annetje.  This will was witnessed by William McKinney, (NJ Colonial Docs, Calendar of Wills, 1751-1760 (p 320); will dated 25 Jun 1752; proven 28 Mar 1754.


           In compiling the third edition of THE WYCKOFF FAMILY IN AMERICA, I noticed a coincidence in the records of one branch of the Wyckoffs living in Mansfield, Sussex (now Warren) County, NJ:  One Mary A. Wyckoff (d/o John Wyckoff and Catherine McDonald), b 6 Sep 1794; d 16 Apr 1878; m 21 Sep 1816, Edward Youmans.  Her name of my" William McKinney's second wife as Sarah Williver, and the marriage of his granddaughter Mary (d/o his son John McKinney & Eleanor Davison) b est 5 Sep 1790; d 12 Nov 1812 (aged 22-2-7) to Edward Yeomans, and the fact that these are buried in Warren Co. NJ, struck me as a clue to some connections.


                                                                        Eleanore M. White





Editor:  It would seem without a doubt, that William b 1723 was indeed the weaver, and that William (son of Mordecai) was the tavern or inn-keeper.  In Andrew Johnston's Journals many references are made to staying at "Mr. Kinne's', which would appear to be William's inn or tavern.  Once and for all, the wife of William b 1723 would seem to be Hannah TenEyck.  In a recent study of Irish names (research project at the Augustan Society), it was noticed that the given name ÒMordecai" seemed to be quite popular in Northern Ireland in and around Antrim . . where it has seldom appeared in Scottish records.  Since William (1723) is said to have been from Ireland, we now have another clue for thought!





CHARLES MCKINNEY 7 RELATED FAMILIES:  Estelena M. Harper, 252 Broadview St., Anaheim, CA 92804, privately printed in 1973, this is a revision, $40.00 from the author.  Reviewed in the last issue of this bulletin, the reviewer feels that this text requires further consideration.  Highly enjoyable reading, this is as much a history of a people and of an area as it is family history.  Those of us with a vested interest in McKinneys will, of course, appreciate it far more than the casual reader.  Done with much devotion, the family stories and anecdotes are well worth the reading.  Charles McKinney and his four wives and forty-eight children is a story unto himself.  North Carolina McKinneys will be able to fill in some of the missing generations in their ancestor charges  .   .  nevertheless, it is entertaining reading and recommended for genealogists.
