Descendants of Alexander MacKenzie

Generation No. 3

      13. John Robert3 McKenzie (John2 MacKenzie, Alexander1) was born Jan 08, 1846 in Cavendish, PEI, and died Aug 09, 1879 in Goshen, Henderson County, Texas, USA. He married Sarah Amelia Moore Sep 28, 1870 in by George J. Milligan, Wesleyan Minister,Charlottetown, PEI, daughter of Edward Moore and Ann Barnard. She was born Aug 09, 1848 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, and died May 27, 1887 in Alberton, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Notes for John Robert McKenzie:
ON FILE A letter received from the Henderson County Historical Society for the Goshen Cemetery: In volume 1, Cemetery Records of Henderson County (Out of Print) on Page 94, the following notations: Goshen Cemetery McKenzie, J. Robert, Died Aug 9, 1879 Age 32 yrs. 7 mos. "To My Beloved Husband" Knights of Honor Lodge #1135. also see Mary W. L. daughter. It is unknown why John Robert would leave Alberton, PEI and head to Saginaw Michigan with a wife and young daughter Alice, and after the birth of twin girls and the death of Alice, then 2 yrs of age, would once again travel farther south to Goshen, Texas, now a ghost town. Goshen was on the Chisholm Trail and John was a carpenter by trade?? One of the twin girls, Mary, passed away in Goshen, at the age of 3 1/2, and two more children, Mattie in 1878 and Robert in 1879 were born. John Robert died in August of 1879 stopping a team of runaway horses and shortly thereafter Sarah his widow left Texas to return to Canada. This was a spunky lady to travel the length of the continent with 3 small children in tow. More on Sarah's life is in her file.

Notes for Sarah Amelia Moore:
Sarah Amelia Moore, married John Robert MacKenzie Sept. 28, 1870. They lived on PEI in Alberton, as Alice Rachel was born there in 1873, some time thereafter they heading to the USA, where in Sept of 1875 twin girls were born, Georgina Paschal and Mary Wilson Larue (Laroc). Some time in the next two to three years they travelled to Goshen, Henderson County, Texas where Mattie Snow, named after the Dr. Snow who assisted at her birth, was born in June of 1878. The next year in January 1879 Mary Wilson passed away and is buried in the Goshen Cemetry which is the only reminder of the town that once was there. in July of that same year Edward Robert "Bob" was born and shortly after John Robert was killed on Aug. 9, when he gave up his life to stop a runaway team of horses. Ironically enough some thirty-two years later John Herman Robertson, Matties brother-in-law was to suffer the same fate, both widows lost husbands and gained? medals. John Roberts widow was given a medal to honor him and sometime within the next year Sarah, with baby Bob, Mattie (just over 1 year) and Georgina (about 4 ) travelled back to Canada and PEI. The 1881 Census shows Sarah as living in Alberton, where she taught piano lessons in her home to help support her. Tom Offer (grandson of Mattie) possess the school bell that belonged to Sarah and was believed to have been used by her to teach school in Texas, as told to us by Nannie, Mattie Snow "MacKenzie" Robertson.
