The Old McKinney Home
Logan's Fort in Lincoln Co., KY was located near what is now called McKinney. The fort had four cabins with a stockade and was built about 200 yards from the center of the village on the present McKinney-Middleburg highway. The McKinney family composed of Archibald, John and probably Daniel came from Rockbridge Co., VA, about 1772. Archibald married Jean McClure about 1788 and settled in Bourbon Co., and took up 1100 acres of land, later losing it by a prior claim. He then returned to Lincoln Co. to the fort which by that time had been destroyed by Indians and changed the name to McKinney fort (1789). This lasted until 1874 when the southern railroad was built through the valley and the name was changed to McKinney Station. Archibald McKinney's home is still in existence, and it was said that when the house was completed, he climbed to the top of the house to show his agility, even though he had only one leg. It has not been as well preserved as some of the other old homes in the area. (Contributed by Mary Hubbard).
The fort was on McKinney's branch of Hanging Fork Creek, about two miles from Green River and nine miles southwest of Stanford. It is said to be the first permanent trading post in KY which furnished supplies to the militia.
The McKinney families who settled here represented a larger family group than in other stations. Many of them served with troops guarding the frontier and some of these are buried in the old cemetery overlooking the present town. The old spring has been covered over with a large concrete cover with an electric pump. The family name occurs in NY records at least as early as 1680. Archibald was born in 1750 and died Jan 15, 1823. They were married in Lincoln Co in 1788 (Jane McClure). Their children as listed in the Simeon Valentine Peyton Bible were: George b Aug 20, 1791; James b Jul 16, 1794; Annie, Jan 14, 1796; Salley; Burton b Jul 16, 1799 d Aug 10, 1874; Jefferson b Jan 1, 1803; Archibald b Feb 25, 1807; Nathan b Jan 23, 1808; Madison b Oct 24, 1809; Jane. Burton's home still stands in McKinney.

From the records of Harley J. McKinney, on file at the LDS Archives, we find that there are discrepancies in the above material. The LDS Archive sheet shows the following: William McKinney b ca 1766, VA, m. 1st, Sarah Randolph of NJ and who died in 1806 in Jefferson Co., KY. William married secondly, Elizabeth Morton of Albemarle Co., VA. They were married in Butler Co., KY. Issue:

Note: This William was said to be the son of James and Mary Beattie McKinney.
The History of Southeastern Missouri, Indiana State Library, pp 1108-9 and published by Goodspeed and Company of Chicago in 1880, gives the following: Dr. J. R. McKinney, son of William and Sarah Randolph McKinney was born in VA in 1786 and the mother Sarah was a native of NJ who came with her parents to KY and settled in Jefferson Co. where she married Mr. McKinney in 1806. Their marriage license was issued by the first clerk ever elected in Jefferson. The grandfather, James, was born and reared in VA where he married Mary Beattie, known as Aunt Polly. Of the eleven children born of their union, none are now living. They were named as follows: William, Archibald, John, Michael, George, James, Catherine, Rachel, Margaret, Elizabeth, Mary. The grandfather moved to KY, settled in Henry Co and there remained until 1825 when he removed to Butler Co. He died in 1830 and his widow in 1839. Their children were Dr. J. R., David, Harriet, Harrison and Mary. The mother of these children died, and their father then married Miss Elizabeth Morton of Albemarle Co. Five children were born to this union: James W., Lavenia W., William M. and Laura. Frances died young. Dr. J. R. lived with his grandparents until his 12th year when his father remarried. Joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, taught school and practiced medicine. He practiced at Sugar Grove, Butler Co. In March 1842 he married Martha T. Johnson and they removed to Warren Co. He served in the Confederate cause as a surgeon, moving to Iron Co. in 1866 and settled in Belleview, MO.

We have just received a new work, The Descendants of Collin and Daniel McKinney, from author, Lois Garver of Austin, TX, printed in 1984. This work is, beyond a doubt, one of the finest examples of family genealogy that I have had the privilege to see in recent years. Containing complete accounts of the known desc of Collin McKinney and of Daniel McKinney, it is amply illustrated, thoroughly annotated and sourced, indexed, and containing a complete bibliography it is an invaluable addition to McKinney families. Soft cover, 317 pp+xi, photographs, Maps, index, bibliography, it is available from our McKinney Library or Mrs. Garver, TX. Mrs. Garver has generously provided the McKinney Association with two copies, as well as public libraries in TX, the Genealogical Society of Utah Library in Salt Lake, the Library of Congress, and Clayton Library in Houston. We are honored to be included in such company. Again, this is one of the best examples of family genealogy that you will find in any library. If you are a desc of Collin and/or Daniel McKinney, I would highly recommend obtaining a copy of this work. Printed privately, there are a limited number of copies.

Ancestor Matching, Alice McKinney Fisher
I urge each of you to fill out the new ten generation chart. After receiving seventeen of these from our members, I checked my files to summarize the information I had, and the forms which had been submitted. Matching of related lines would be much simpler if the records were uniform. This is the summary of my records and the sources of information I to work from:
The New Ten Generation Charts from: Marian Abel, Wilma Albrecht, Mildred Brummel, Marjorie Jane Davis, Alice Fisher, Vernon Holst, Dorothy P. Johnson, Patricia Kirkwood, Gaylia McKinney, Howard W. McKinney, Mary Estey McKinney, Pauline McKinney, Stephanie Oldland, Nancy Sayford, Thelma R. Small, Marian R. Stroud.
Lineage charts from: Mary Katherine Hubbard, Howard W. McKinney, Peter Campbell McKinney, Willa Sorenson, Eleanor Marshall White, Naomi White.
The old Ten Generation charts from: Gene C. Armistead, Beverly Domenget, Ila Eckstadt, Eleine Facklam (two names only), Bob Faulkner (1 name only), Jane Goldhammer, Ann Graff, Monica Gray, Patricia Hailey (1 name only), James Haning, Ruby Hawkins, Daune Hopper, Rosalie Jackson, Norma Cecil Jones, Helen Marple, Barbara Maybury, Lelah J.

Watch out for another gimmick from Halbert's Inc. of Bath, OH. They are now advertising (besides their Sharon Taylor Family Heritage Book), porcelain plates described as 'your unbreakable link with the past', bearing 'your' family coat of arms, individually researched. Also described as a 'limited edition plate', it is most attractive, but beware any semblance to an authorized arms is purely co-incidental.
