From The Editor's Notes
Apologies for the lateness of this issue of our publication. There are times when personal and family events take precedence over all other endeavors, and this has been the case in recent months. Surprisingly, I have not had a single letter complaining that an issue has not been received. I thank you all for that.
In answering a 'longish' letter from a member recently, I discovered something that all genealogists should know, and probably don't use often enough. A timeline or chart of events and dates to enable us to see 'at a glance' what was happening to whom and where and when the event happened. I was amazed to see the evolution of information that appeared. Information that had been stored in bits and pieces, that placed into proper sequence, began to emerge as a completed picture. Although far from complete, I am submitting it in this publication in the hope that members will be able to use it with their own information, or add to it for the enlightenment of us all.
We will continue research materials on the Carolinas and VA with this issue, and begin TN and KY materials in the Winter 1984 issue. Please submit your KY and TN queries before Jan 15, 1985 for inclusion. I am also happy to announce that our publication will be indexed in the Genealogical Periodical Annual Index, published by Heritage Books, Inc. of Bowie, MD. This series of books, for those of you who are unfamiliar with them, contain citations from a vast grouping of family publications, historical and genealogical society publications and other materials published for genealogists. Currently, the 1980 and previous indexes are available from the publisher, and the index for 1981 publications will soon be available. This is an indispensable research tool. They should be the first works consulted on any research trip. Not only are they inclusive of family surnames, but also contain citations of location, records, ships lists, etc. Published annually, they are a 'must' in comprehensive research.
We plan a new family ancestry chart for the association, which will be given to each new member, and included in the next issue of the publication. Please submit them to our pedigree chairman so that our records will not only be complete, but uniform.
'Carolina Style' section, Friday, Dec 23, 1983, published an interesting two-page article by Mike Hembree concerning Sunset, SC and includes much information on McKinney's Chapel. Sunset post office serves what was once Nimmons, Eastatoe, Crow Creek, Murphy, Hazel and Sunset. Rough boundaries are now Hwy 178 to the east, Lakes Keowee and Jocassee to the west, the NC border to the north, and the southern corridor bordering Hwy 11 to the south. McKinney's Chapel is described as a small mountain church with a big history, located about a mile from the subject of the article, Cleo Chapman. Built by John McKinney, who settled in the area in 1820, it originally served as a Methodist church and school. (Note in margin: This is Dale McKinney's line and ours)
The Methodist move to bigger and more centralized churches resulted in the closing of McKinney's about 45 years ago, however, years of neglect later began showing on the face and adjacent cemetery. About 18 months ago, Gene and Georgia Chapman decided to attempt restoration of the building. The use of the small restored church is now limited to special services and funerals. Some of the families that have been in the same area for many years are the Chapmans, Boggs, Aikens, Gilstraps, Brassells, Holcombes and Hinkles. (the article is available for loan.) Hannah E. McKinney and William Gravely were married here in 1895 by Rev. Hardin. John McKinney, the founder, was grandfather of Pickens County supervisor, Tom McKinney. John McKinney was from VA and his mother was a sister of Daniel Boone. (handwritten note in margin says the sister of Daniel Boone information is wrong.) The family was prominent in the area, and McKinney settlement was marked on early maps of the Old Pendleton District.

Thompson's Regiment of Rangers, Company of Capt. Ely Kershaw and was in camp at Mineral Springs 7 Aug 1775. Military records show Mordicae in 1775 as age 24, 5'7Ó, born in MD. The only known (at this time) child of Mordecae and Elizabeth Dills McKinney was Katherine, b 1775 in NJ. She married William Cox in 1794 in SC. Mordecai is shown in the Edgefield District of SC in 1790 and in 1800 living in Pendleton District. William Cox and family moved to GA about 1820 and Mordecai and Elisabeth followed. As a 'deed of love' from William Cox provided them a home in Habersham Co as long as they lived. Mordecai's will dated Feb 1825 was filed 9 Sep 1828 in Habersham Co., GA.

Sarah, dau of Richard and Maacha Pinson, Surry Co., Westfield MM, married James McKinney, son of Jeams and Mary McKinney (no birthdate given), 23rd day, 12th month, 1801.

Westfield did not have monthly meeting status until 1786 but was a local meeting for worship under the New Garden meeting in Guilford Co from 1771-1786, which explains why the first Pinson family records appear in Guilford rather than in Surry.

Dau Aletta (Lette) Studiford, b Feb 3, 1804, baptized May 13, 1804 at Readington. Other children were Rebecca (Stevens), Mary (Rockefeller), Ann (Van Middleworth), son Wyckoff. Wyckoff is buried at St. James Lutheran Church yard, NJ, also known as the Straw Lutheran Church. (St. James Lutheran Church was the church which Mary Salmon belonged mother of the son Henry McKinney, illeg. and ack'd. by Mordecai McKinney).
Rebecca McKinney Stevens had dau Elizabeth van Arsdale b Jun 24, 1826. John Wyckoff, baptized Oct 9, 1743, d 1832, father of Margaret McKinney, resided at Readington and had children John, Margaret, Mary and Jane.

He married 2nd, Louise Felps. Children: John b 1814; Maria b 1816; William; Andrew; Eliza; Irving W. b 1822; Ann b 1824; Charles.
Materials in old correspondence from Blanche Beal Lowe (12 Generations of Lowe) state:
ÒShunned by the well established coastal citizens, most Scots crossed the Raritan River into Monmouth Co and settled in the back country hills which reminded them of home, the settlement in Scotch Plains being an exception.Ó Mrs. Lowe also mentions Kain McKinney b 1638 and wife, Anne MacDonald with son Mordecai and John Collin McKinney and Mary Elizabeth McDonald with son named Mordecai (both b ca 1685-1690).
Mordecai McKinney, Jr. 'married a relative of John Thompson's wife, Agnes Bodine'. By 1760, David and Rebecca Lane mortgaged their NJ property and migrated to Sunbury, PA where the oldest grave in the cemetery is their son, James, who died in 1775. The Lowe family followed in 1773. Mordecai Jr. settled in Muncy, PA near his oldest daughter Mary and her husband, John Buckalow. In 1778 he went to Harrisburg and settled at Paxtang and died in 1782.
John and Mary McKinney Buckalow escaped to MD ca 1779 in Harford Co they purchased a mill. Catherine McKinney Lowe visited her brother in Alexandria, VA. Mordecai's son Mordecai III lived in Middletown, PA and brother, Jacob settled near Ithaca NY. The Lowes moved to Elmira, NY after 1790. Catherine wrote in 1816 from Ithaca to her eldest son, Mordecai Lowe, 'you doubtless heard of William's embarrassments and that Jacob McKinney has the factor in his hands, and I expect will dive it on smartly and pay William's debts and make something hansome for himself (William Lowe). Jacob was either brother or nephew of Catherine. They tended a place for McKinney at Halsey's Mills.

John 'Wildcat' McKinney, one of KY's most colorful teachers, famed for his epic struggle with and strangulation of a wildcat in his Lexington schoolhouse, settled at Clintonville in the 1780's. He tutored children at his Greenbrier home and often depicted KY as a land of peace and plenty. Wounded in Dunmore's War, several ribs broken at the Battle of the Point, he taught school on ground where old Fayette Co. courthouse was built, 40 steps from the east gate of Old Fort at Lexington. He moved to MO in 1808, took up Spanish land grants and returned to KY in 1811. He lived on Green Creek in Bourbon Co. and was a member of the old Green Creek Church near Clintonville. He came to KY with 300 others including Samuel McClure (wife was an Alexander), John Boyd, Isaac Cunningham and James Wallace. Some relatives went to Southern IN and settled there. John traveled through IL into MO and returned to KY. Relatives in Indiana were Alexander McKinney and David Spurgeon. John was a member of the 1st KY legislature from Bourbon Co. in 1792.

We have added Vermont's 'Branches and Twigs' to our exchange list please write to Mary McKinney in Tucson, if you wish to borrow.
East Tennessee Roots, TN, have Vol. 1, #2. We are now exchanging with this publication.
Mary McKinney has added some personal newsletters in her collection to her list of materials that may be borrowed:
Merrifield Family Association Publication, 1984

Lee Co., VA Marriages, 1830-1836
Zellner Family Publication lineage for four generations
It has been my ambition for some time to include more than just 'McKinneys' in our quarterly, in the hope that collateral family information may be more helpful to some members. We strive to maintain a publication for the McKinney surname, but there are times in our search, when collateral family names and/or research has been helpful in establishing connections with other McKinney families, or helps to 'clear up' some misinformation that the searcher has been working with. In the hope that this may be the case, I am beginning a lineage list with each issue. Members, please send me your charts when you are able to do so. Each issue will contain one or more lineage pages per member.

The above ahnentafel is a representative sample of one that I would like to have for each member perhaps some research into collateral lines will help another member in his research and broaden the scope of this publication. The ancestor table need not be complete. I seriously doubt that one ever is. Please send to the editor for publication in our next issue.
News and Notes
For those of you interested in Custard/Custer families, I recommend a publication published by Shields Publishing Co., CA.
'Ancestry' Newsletter, Jul, Aug 1984, issue features an interesting article on Ancestral Research and the Genealogical Library. Available for loan from our library.
Federation of Genealogical societies Newsletter, Vol. 8 #4, Jul Aug 1984 informs us the National Archives was restored to independence from GSA on Jun 21, 1984, passed unanimously by the Senate, and also passed by the House of Representatives on Aug 2nd. It is hoped that approval will be made by Sep? If all goes as expected, the National Archives and Record Service will become the National Archives and Records Administration early in 1984 something that we all have worked and hoped for!
The White House Historical Association is now publishing a new journal called 'White House History'. This editor has seen a copy, and was very impressed. It is the first publication devoted entirely to the history of the White House, available through the White House Historical Association. Income generated from this publication is used to publish other materials concerning the White House and to acquire historical furnishings and objects for it. Copies are available for review. If you haven't seen it, it is well worth both price and time.
