THE LUKE MCKINNEY FAMILY HOME PAGE
Have been able to trace family tree back to Luke McKinney B.3-4-1782 in Hampshire, VA. D.7-27-1862 Preston Co. WV. Married Alyse Spencer abt 1810.
Lukes children were John Spencer B.5-25-1811, Harrison B. B.1-12-1813, Michael B.4-10-1816, Sarah Frances B.5-6-1818, Arthur Wesley B.5-13-1820, Julia Ann B.5-17-1822, Rebecca B.5-14-1824, Henry B.3-22-1826, Alexander M. B.5-17-1829, Joseph Jackson B.1-13-1832, and Gabriel B.2-6-1834.
We think , but have been unable to prove, Luke's father is William McKinney married to Sarah Miller.
My line is Joseph Jackson McKinney married to Caroline Zinn on 8-11-53. In the 1870 census they were listed as farming in Preston Co. WV in the Valley District.
Their Son Albert Raymond married Harriett Drucilli Dawson. Albert died 10-26-1912 in Martin Co. IN.
Albert's son Claude Estace lMcKinney was born on 12-24-1890in Lawrenceville, IL. Married Myrtle McCart in Dover Hill, Martin Co. IN on 3-11-1912. He died 1-1-1963.
Claude's son Roger born 11-12-1912 at Indian Springs, Martin Co. IN married Freeda Benita Ledgerwood in Lawrenceville, IL on 4-16-1934. Roger died on 9-6-1988 in Seymour, IN.
I am Roger's oldest son Gordon born 8-31-1939 at Alfordsville, IN. Married to Patricia Ann Roberts 4-6-1962 at NAAS Whiting Field Milton FL. We have 3 sons.
I am looking for Luke McKinney's father. All we have is the story that William may be his father. No facts.We would like to make the tie to Europe. ARE WE FROM SCOTLAND OR IRELAND????? We also would like any new information on the descendants of Luke you may.
I will share what I have.
