McKinney Family Library Holdings

  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 1982 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 Editors’ desk


We are pulling a switch with this issue to what we had previously announced.  In the last issue, we said that we would treat Iowa McKinneys in this issue.  However, we received material from only two of our readers (I know you were busy around the Christmas season also), and we simply did not have time to do the research we knew we needed to do in order to present a good overview of Iowa McKinneys.  So, we are putting our Iowa material back in the files, and beginning with Dorothy Gross’s marvelous study of Missouri McKinneys.  Dorothy sent this to us a few weeks ago, and we are very impressed with her work.  We are very grateful to her, and I’m sure many of you will want to express your gratitude also.  All we are adding to her material is page numbers.  How wonderful!


Ed is getting his doctoral studies into what we hope is the last semester.  He finally passed the required Princeton exam in German, has his comps scheduled, and uses the word processor almost every minute he is at home.  I am also trying to finish my thesis for a second master’s degree I hope to complete this summer, so we have had difficulty finding time right now to devote to the Maze.  Hopefully, after this summer, our schedule will be more flexible!  So, you can see why we appreciate Dorothy’s efforts so very, much right now!


This is the final issue for 1988, although we are again late getting it to you.  You will note one change – we have continued the page numbers from the last issue.  Wilma Cross, who does our indexing, kindly pointed out that she needs consecutive numbering to do her index, and we managed to make her task difficult with our numbering from page one again in the last issue instead of continuing the numbers from the first issue of 1988.  We’re sorry, Wilma!  We do really appreciate her work in doing the index each year.  For 1989, we promise to number consecutively!


Blarney Stones


In response to our request for ‘family recipes’ in the last issue, George G. McKinney, 31 Sparrow Lane, Port Ludlow, WA 98365, sent us this recipe.  It was made by his great-grandmother, Laura (Rudd) McKinney , who was born 31 May 1861 in Knox Co., MO, and died 21 Jan 1943 at Roscoe , CA .  George said that during his 25 years in the U. S. Navy, he considered it a Merry Christmas if a relative included some of these in a Care package for him.


2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 cup lukewarm water

2 cups flour

3 teaspoons baking powder


Cream sugar and egg yolks; add water slowly and flour and baking powder.  Add beaten egg whites.  Bake in buttered long bread pan for 27 minutes at 350 degrees.  When cold, cut in squares.


Spread with mixture of butter and powdered sugar (1 box), and a little milk.  Roll in chopped peanuts.  (Use roasted, Salted – just shake or wipe off extra salt and skins.)




‘Old John’ McKinney


Last fall, Pat Kirkwood sent us a clipping about properties for sale around the Lake Tahoe area.  The article mentioned that ‘Old John’ McKinney had originally settled the area, and the main area which featured homes for sale was advertised as ‘Chambers Landing.’


As many of you know, Ed’s McKinneys moved to Missouri with the Chambers family and the two families had several marriages – in fact, Ed’s grandmother was a Chambers.  So, we had to check that item.


We started by calling the Chambers Landing number on the clipping.  A very pleasant representative told me about the area, and said that a history of the area had been written which told about John McKinney in detail.  She also sent us a beautiful portfolio of material describing the homes in Chambers Landing.  They are priced from $500,000 to $900,000 and sound fabulous.  She also gave me the name of a nearby business which sold the history.  I decided not to invest the almost sixty dollars which the history cost, but to try to get it through an inter-library loan.  I called Ed, who was in Columbia at the University of Missouri , and two days later, he arrived with the book.  The University owned a copy.


The book is an excellent history, and extremely interesting to read.  The title is The Saga of Lake Tahoe, by Edward B. Scott.  It was published by Sierra-Tahoe Publishing Co., Lake Tahoe , Nevada , and printed by The Filmer Bros. Press, San Francisco , CA in 1957.  We were disappointed to find that the book does not mention McKinney ’s ancestry, but his life was certainly interesting.  Following is a brief summary of his activities in the Lake Tahoe area as described in the book.


John Washington McKinney, with John Wren, was said to have established a hay ranch near Lake Tahoe at Burton ’s Pass in 1861.  By 1862, he moved to the western side of the lake.  He was described as a ‘mountain man’ and was said to possess ‘uncanny ability’ in the forest.  McKinney established a resort on the lake where John Muir was a regular guest.  He continued to trap, but also kept adding more cottages to his resort and began stocking nearby Quail Lake with brook trout.


In the fall of 1887, John McKinney married Mrs. Minnie Bates at a ‘grand ball’ before some fifty guests, who were apparently not expecting the event.  By 1889, McKinney had built thirty cottages in his resort.


In 1892, McKinney , who was described as a trusting soul and not a very astute businessman, lost his resort to a creditor.  He died ‘shortly after the turn of the century’ at the Auburn County Hospital, California.


David Henry Chambers purchased the resort in 1920 and renamed it ‘Chambers Lodge.’


Can any of our members provide any ancestry or trace any descendants of this interesting man?

Book Review


Rutman, Darrett B., and Anita Rutman.   A Place in Time:  Middlesex County , Virginia , 1650-1750.  New York :  W. W. Norton and Company, 1984.


The Rutmans believe that, contrary to other writer’s opinions, Virginia did have community as the basis of life there.  It was not exactly on the same model as the New England sense of community, but it did exist.  The Virginia version was based on grouping, on ordered society, on geography/technology, on social topography, and on networks of relationships.  Their purpose in their research included also the satisfaction of a perceived need to study the Virginia concept of community, and to determine the steps by which it evolved into a society.  They cited Ferdinand Toennies’ concept of difference between the two:  a community existed when warm bonds of solidarity existed between the people living in a geographic locality, be they family or neighbors, and every one felt responsibility for the welfare of others in the community.  Society is characterized more by a group of people living within a locality, but they feel limited concern about the welfare of all – they have concern only for family members and close friends; status achieved by social rank or wealth – or both – creates artificial barriers, and individualistic concerns and actions take precedence over communal affiliations.


The Rutmans used the process of stripping names from time and place records of Middlesex County , Virginia , and reassembling the names into biographical sketches via computer.  Thus probate, court trials, church, military (and possibly other) records yield all there is to know about one person, but all the information may be found by entry of the name into the computer bank.  Some of the assembled biographies are short; they have some people for whom there is only one entry, and logic dictates that some, perhaps many, never had their names recorded anywhere during their life in Middlesex between 1650 and 1750.  In all, there are 12,215 names in the computer; about one-fourth of these entries were Black.  The Rutmans say they had no particular reason to select Middlesex county, other than that the records from early colonial times were unusually complete there.  Since the research was funded by government grants, the computer files should be available to scholars wishing to search further in that region of the country.


Several characteristics of Middlesex community life stand out that help distinguish the shape of life for ordinary—and some not so ordinary—people within the County.


One such characteristic was that the pervasive nature of change was largely unperceived by the residents.  For most, life was a routine that seldom varied, and the residents seldom expected it to.  Few cherished goals above those of their immediate family; a tobacco-farmer’s son expected to grow tobacco.


A characteristic immediately perceived by the reader is the extensive impact of distance upon the residents.  About 1700, 36% of all marriages took place between people who lived ½ mile or less apart; 95% lived no more than five miles apart.  A man whose daughter had an affair with a married neighbor—and became pregnant by him—arranged a marriage for her with a man who lived fourteen miles upcountry; he was comforted by the thought that she was far enough away that there would be no more occasion for such carryings-on.  The daughter apparently had the last laugh; when her husband died and her lover’s wife died, she and her lover were married.


As insinuated above, life expectancy was brief and uncertain in Middlsex County in the period under study.  Unusual terms such as ‘then-wife’ became common in conversation, since due to many deaths of spouses it was not unusual for a man (or woman) to be married four or five times.  Ensuing marriages upon




The untimely death of a spouse were arranged hastily—frequently within a matter of days—and always with an eye toward the economic gain possible in such circumstances.  Rich widows did not remain widows long.  Legal relationships, such as brothers, half-brothers, step-brothers, brothers by marriage, but no kin by blood (and similar relationships of females) compounded the entanglement faced when trying to sort out kinfolk.  Frequently step-brother and step-sister, being no blood relation, would fall in love and marry.


In Middlesex County , the wealthy and highly-placed were not always given positions of responsibility.  There seem to be traces of Turner’s frontier thesis at work here; men were more highly regarded for what they were, father than who they were.  This finding disagrees with Ed Morgan (American Slavery; American Freedom), and Steve Webb (1676), who both observed that the more status one enjoyed via wealth and resultant social standing, the greater community and County responsibilities he had.  Society in Middlesex was very complexly layered.


Bacon’s Rebellion is another area in which Middlesex County did not fit Webb’s observations.  There, the conflict did not arise by oppresses rising against oppressors, but from the action taken by the economically frustrated (as in Boyer and Nissenbaum’s study of Salem and the causes of the witchcraft trials there), and by chronic troublemakers, all of whom knew each other and who, to a degree, felt obliged to join in the revolt simply because their rowdy friends were involved.  When the rebellion ended, Governor Berkeley did not avenge himself upon Middlesex County leaders, as Webb insists in 1676 he always did, but pardoned Captain Boodle, who was elected County Constable next year.


The mortality rate in Middlesex did not drop after 1650, as Morgan found that it did over the colony as a whole in American Slavery; American Freedom.  Probably that is because Middlesex was lowland, with swamps to the Southwest, and as the population expanded into the interior, mortality rates dropped in general as more of the population began living on higher ground.  Too, the influx of African Blacks brought a new, more virulent strain of malaria, which weakened the population so that other more deadly diseases became harder to resist, especially by child-bearing women.


Slavery is seen by he Rutmans as an immense gamble, affordable only by the rich.  A poor planter might do well to borrow money to purchase a pair of slaves, if both lived and reproduced.  If one died, however, he was out his purchase price, plus burdened down with the other—the worst possible scenario would be to buy a man and woman, a child is born about the time the man dies; the planter therefore must support the child until it is fifteen or so, and the slave woman cannot contribute as much labor on the farm as the man could have.  If a small planter had good luck, he could do well.  Wealthy planters, on the other hand, could survive such a catastrophe simply by purchasing another slave for replacement.


Slavery is also perceived to be a large factor in spreading the gap between the rich and poor, creating to class and status consciousness.


The Rutmans perceive the society to be a cruel one, with servants and slaves occasionally beaten to death by their owners.  In all, however, the society is seen as being safer than today’s – in 1676,  2.9 crimes against the person were noted and 1.6 against property, as compared to 1967 (in a rural north-central state), 10.9 crimes average against both person and property occurred (per 1,000).


The rise of commercial urbanism resulted in a wider gap between people of the County, both in terms of social interaction, and in terms of status.


The Rutmans are compelled to manipulate data too much in the book, I think.  Several County developments are reconstructed that either did not happen in Middlesex, or in a different time period.  They are careful to footnote such reconstructions and label them as such, however.  There is not enough emphasis upon women, or Blacks; there is no mention of the Great Awakening at all.  The book’s good points far outweigh its bad ones, however.




Serendipity Strikes Again


A few weeks ago Blanche and I were researching some genealogical material in the Springfield Public Library.  There was a book lying on a table which attracted my attention; I realized with a start that the author is my supervisor at the Missouri Cultural Heritage Center where I work this spring semester.  His name is Dr. Howard Wight Marshall, and the title of the book is Folk Architecture in Little Dixie ( Columbia , Missouri :  University of Missouri Press ), 1981.  Browsing through Dr. Marshall’s discussion of Missouri vernacular architecture (architecture of the ordinary people), I was again startled to find on age 45 a house plan diagram, with the comment that it was of the ‘old McKinney place’ near St. Martins, Missouri (just west of Jefferson City).  My great-great-great-great grandfather, Henry McKinney, settled in that area in 1816, having moved there from Campbell County , TN (Dr. Marshall says VA; Campbell County is near VA).  I do not for certain know whether this is Henry McKinney’s house plan or not; it could very well be the house of one of his three sons.  At any rate, we found it fascinating, and we are including a photocopy of the page in question.  Dr. Marshall has given me his permission to do so.


‘D’ is the old McKinney place west of St. Martins in Cole County , at the southern edge of Little Dixie’s zone of transition; the Virginia emigrant built a 16 ft 8 in x 16 ft 9 in V-notched story-and-a-half-tall single-pen house and added several framed rooms and an attached summer kitchen on the rear.
