I am researching the descendants of David and Charlotte McKay, born around 1800. Family tradition claims they immagrated from Scotland around 1820, after marrying. There is a fair body of evidence that this is not reliable information. Charlotte's maiden name was Sherwood. Their oldest son, Benjamin was born in1822, in New York State according to the 1850 and 1860 census of Vernango County, PA. Their second son, Lafayett, was born in 1927, in New York, according to the same census. Their daughter, Fannie Matilda McKay Salsgiver was born in Ontario, Canada in 1830. There could have been other children. The children all lived their later lives in Vernango County or Forrest County, PA. Benjamin married Isabell Nellis, and raised his 14 children in Newaygo Co. Michigan. They moved to Michigan in the 1870's. Lafayett married a Mary, in 1850, and possibly a Polly several years later. Benjamin's children include Charlotte, Mary, John, Martin, Robert, Cynthia, Luella, Benjamin, and Susanna. Lafayette's children include: David, Benjamin, Nathan, Jerusha, Charles, and George. Fannie McKay Salsgiver's children were: Catherine, Theodore, Joseph, Lenora, Jacob, Daniel, Charlotte, Josiah, Thomas, Mimmie,Rachel and Vernie.
