McKenneys of Belmont, Monroe, Guernsey and Harrison Counties, Ohio-1840

Continued from 1830s notes.

Hopefully you have landed here because you are researching a McKenney/McKinney family who came from Belmont, Monroe, Guernsey or Harrison counties of Ohio. If so, please contact me so that we can share information. Several families from the area now have taken a yDNA-37 test at FTDNA, and we need more families from the area to do this so that we may begin to get a better picture of these families and possible relationships between them.

The focus of my study right now are George Washington McKenney Sr. b. abt. 1832 in Ohio, William McKenney b. abt. 1827 in Ohio, married in Monroe Ohio, and Robert Eugene McKenney born about 1821 in Pennsylvania. They are each from the same area in Ohio and went to Van Buren County, Iowa and are closely connected, so I am assuming they are either brothers are cousins. DNA research shows this branch of McKenneys is not Scotch-Irish. Instead they are Irish and related to Irish McKennas.

As far as I can tell, no one has much studied the McKenneys from this area and I’m hoping eventually some people will drop by who are descendants of McKenney families from Belmont, Monroe, Guernsey and Harrison Counties in Ohio.

Some of the below is good solid census research. Other parts are speculation and subject to change as evidence presents itself, and hopefully evidence will present itself.

Things get confusing because of the repetitive names in these McKenney families of George Washington, William, John and Robert. I try to keep things straight by consistently (annoyingly, repetitively) attaching birth dates to individuals.

I’m also including research on the Bartows and some Shaffer families of Harrison county who married into the McKenney family, and also families who seem to be closely connected as they made the migration out to Iowa at the same time the McKenneys did, or who moved to the Ioway/Great Nemaha Reservation area at that time. George W. McKenney Sr. b. 1832 is said to have married an Ioway woman and I feel examination of these families is pertinent. These families who move to the Ioway/Great Nemaha Reservation are connected with the McKenneys through marriage but more obviously through close neighborhood associations with the Bartows and Shaffers.

We may never have direct lines for these McKenneys and may have to make do with a clan umbrella of kinship.

1840 finds Robert McKenney (b. 1770s), who was in the Beaver, Guernsey Co., Ohio census with the two John McKenneys, now in Enoch, Monroe, Ohio living amongst John Neptune, Jesse Rinard, Eli Yarnal, Eli Bartow, Frederick Hays, Samuel Pool etc. He has 1 older son and 2 older daughters remaining in his household. Frederick Hayes is a brother of Bailey and Edmund Hayes beside whom he lived in 1830. In 4 years, William McKenney will marry Esther Yarnell, daughter of Eli Yarnell. This Robert McKenney dies before 1850.

Archibald CARNAL
Abigail VANCE
NOTE: At Genforum I find James Vance (father to Cyrus) died in 1833. James married Abigail Milson on Oct 1 1804 in Brownsville, Washington Co. PA. “(From Brownsville, could take a flatbottom boat down the Monongahela and Ohio. James served in the War of 1812 as a private, under Capt Thomas Shannon, 1812 pension file lists him in Guernsey.” This Thomas Shannon was brother of Wilson Shannon, the 14th and 16th governor of Ohio. The eldest brother, George Shannon, was on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Their sister Lavinia Shannon married Humphrey Anderson. In this census their son Humphrey Shannon Anderson is living next to John McKinney 2, which I think is interesting. See 1837 for more information on this family linking them to the Bairds.

Samuel Bartow, son of Eli living beside Robert McKennney (b.1700s) in Belmont, (shown as being prior his marriage) is seen in the Cadiz, Harrison, OH census. Neighbors are Benjamin McFadden, Charles Robinson, then John Lawton, John Johnston.

In 1840 we have a neat line up in the North, Harrison, Ohio census of families that will be moving to Van Buren, Iowa and the Nemaha Reserve (Ioway) in Nebraska. I consider this significant as the emigration to Van Buren, Iowa (where the Ioway had lived and where some Sac and Fox still live) begins in the late 1840s with Robert Eugene McKenney returning to Ohio before 1850. It is in the 1850 Monroe Ohio census that Isabella Love, said to be Ioway Indian, appears with new husband George W. McKenney Jr. And now begins the movement of the rest of these families to the area beside what is to be the Nemaha Half-Breed Reserve, and then on to the Nemaha Half-Breed Reserve at Rulo, Richardson, Nebraska (where mostly Ioway and some Sioux and Omaha were allotted) when it first opens in 1860.

Also in this year in Harrison Ohio, Nancy McKinney, daughter of George McKinney Sr. and Mary Campbell of Harrison, Ohio, is living with husband John Gault next to the Arthur Chenoweth and Mary Delong family. In 1807, Mary’s brother, Solomon, had married a Margaret McKinney born about 1790 in Pennsylvania.

Job Yarnell is in Van Buren, IA in 1840. Line-up is Lewis Raines, Henry Atherton, ? Young, James J. Sutton, Edward Enlow, Jacob Diel, William Miller, Job Yarnal (Garnal in census database), John R. Sparks, Nathan Shephard, Wm. R. Terry, James Lawrence, E. M. Janes, G. W. Houme.

In 1840 William Oliver Picken of Harrison, OH marries Frances Overholt. After she dies he marries Mary Shaeffer in IA abt. 1859.

1841

Jane Delong, daughter of Solomon Delong and an unknown Margaret McKinney, perhaps born about 1790 in Pennsylvania, marries James McNeely, son of John McNeely who is living in 1850 beside Rebecca McKenney (possible widow of John McKenney 1) in Millwood, Guernsey, Ohio.

1842

Mary Jane Enlow marries William S. Hackney in Iowa.

1842

Pagrachenah marries John Baptiste Roy.

1843

1844

Rev. Samuel Irvin resigns as interpreter for Nemaha Agency and John Baptiste Roy takes his place.

1844

Presbyterian Rev. Edmund McKinney now locates at the Omaha Otoe Nebraska Mission at Bellevue/Council Bluffs. It isn’t known if he is part of the equation or not. He descends down the pre-Revolutionary Mordecai McKinney line.

1844

In Monroe, Ohio, William McKenney marries Esther Yarnell, whose father Eli Yarnell is living beside Eli Bartow and Robert McKenney.

1844

Irvin McKinney in Middleburg, Noble, Ohio. A history of Noble states Middleburg, situated on Middle Creek, was on the northern part of Jefferson Township and laid out in 1844 by Church Tuttle. The south part was laid out by Joseph Moredick. “Among the early settlers of the village were Jesse Reinard, who worked for Tuttle; Irvin McKinney, who erected one of the first housees, and worked at shoemaking; William Miller, also a shoemaker; Eli Pickering, a carpenter, and others..”

1844

Obediah McDonough, son of John McDonough and Marcy Hoagland, marries Mary Shaffer, daughter of George Shaffer and Margaret Saltzgiver, in Harrison Ohio. He dies and she later remarries to William Oliver Picken in 1859 in Iowa.

1845

Paris Caldwell marries Margaret Hackney in Wapello, Iowa.

1845

Circa 1845 a Wilson McKinney is born in Iowa, both his parents given at one point as 1/2 white and 1/2 Sac and Fox, but a daughter gives him as Ioway in one census and he attended the Ioway school, so he may be part Ioway. After Ioway Isabella McKenney dies, her husband names his next son Eli Wilson, which becomes a long-standing family name. Is there possibly some relationship?

1845

A John R. McKenney becomes a blacksmith to the Osage in this year. Unknown if he is related to my family. He has left by 1850-1853. He is blacksmith at the same time as Akin Brunt. Assistant blacksmiths were Joseph Captain and Francis Mitchell.

1846

In 1846, Robert Eugene McKenney (relative of G. W. McKenney Sr.) marries Mary Bartow, daughter of Eli and Charity Bartow, and his relatives the Shaeffers and Bartows all move to Van Buren Iowa. It’s my belief G. W. McKenney Sr. was also out west during this period. Robert Eugene McKenney is back in Ohio by 1848

1846

1846. Skillman Doughty in Wapello, IA. In 1898 Paris Wood Hackney marries Dora Knox in Oregon. She is daughter of Thomas Lyttleton Knox and Sarah Ellen Oglesby. Dora Knox’ uncle, William Doughty Knox, was married to Amanda Jane Doughty, daughter of Skillman and Jane Downey Doughty who were in Wapello, IA by 1846. Skillman Doughty’s sister is Francis Fanny Doughty who married James Mason Ellis, parents of Mary Ann Ellis who married James Sparks. Thomas Lyttleton Knox’ parents were Samuel Knox and Malinda Doughty, another sister of Mary Ann Ellis and Skillman Doughty. Elizabeth Knox, a sister of Samuel Knox, m. Jonas Sparks, whose uncle was George Sparks, father of James Sparks who married Mary Ann Ellis.

Also in Wapello, IA in 1846 is Sarah Hackney and family (grandmother of Paris Wood Hackney).

1849

William McKenney, b. 1827, conjectured brother of G. W. McKenney Sr. b. 1832, has moved to Van Buren, Iowa and is observed on the 1849 census. He is married to Esther Yarnell, daughter of Eli Yarnell who was living beside Robert McKenney in the 1840 Enoch, Monroe, Ohio census. Eli Yarnell also moves to Van Buren, Iowa, where already resides Job Yarnell in Lick Creek, Van Buren, Iowa. We know Job’s family but don’t know Eli’s nor whom he was married to.

1849

In 1849 in Van Buren, Iowa, Bluett Partelow lives next to George Shaeffer, Buckmaster, and a couple households further down is Cyrus Bartow. Jeremiah Shaeffer is also in the census, several households away. The Shaeffers, Buckmasters and Bartows are related to George W. McKenney b. 1832 via Robert Eugene McKenney who married Mary Bartow. Elizabeth Bartow was married to Jeremiah Shaeffer. This is the earliest known association of family with the Partelows, who marry into the Ioway in 1889.

1849

1849, Isabel Frances Hackney, daughter of WIlliam Hackney and Sarah Shannon, marries William Baker, son of the Sac and Fox blacksmith, Joshua Wells Baker, in Wapello, Iowa (see 1860 Partelow column).

1849

1849, George W. McKenney b. 1832 and Isabella Love (Ioway) are married about this time. I am working under the assumption that Isabella may be related somehow to Pagrachena (Elizabeth).

At about this time the Firebaughs/Heastons/Forneys etc., a number of families related to the Shaeffer/McKinneys, move out to Holt Co. Missouri from Harrison Co. Ohio. When Rulo is founded they are found in Rulo living intermingled in the census with many of the Nemaha Reservation families. They live in households next to the Kenceleurs, the Plants, the Benoists, the Picottes, Charles Robidoux, and Peter Livermore and Joseph Vetter, John Roy/Elisha Dorion. Afterwards, some move on to Wolf River in Doniphan.
