McKenney Bible Images

Thanks to my cousins for sending photocopies of these pages to me.

Lloyd McKenney’s bible was used for recording some family history. I didn’t see it until about 2003. The genealogy I received as a child wasn’t in the bible, it was instead on loose paper, but in the case of the Hackney and McKenney families it was much as in the bible. The Crockett’s went back more generations.

We have a page recording the bible was a gift from a Rev. Paul Barth of the First Luther Church of Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1944.

All the below images link to larger images.

The below page records a brief history of Samuel and Sadie Elizabeth Hackney Crockett, written by Sadie on Sep 29, 1931, transcribed by Lloyd into the bible.

The below page is Lloyd’s recording of the McKenney line from George W. McKenney and Isabel. A good bit of info was missing on the family at that time.

The below page concerns again the Hackneys and also the Crocketts.

Lloyd notes a trip made to Tennessee to try to verify the Crockett genealogy.

Lloyd writes of the gift of the bible to him and that his sister, Thelma, had it rebound for him.

Lloyd’s notes on bible verses.

Edward Wilson Enlow and Elizabeth Wood

Edward Wilson Enlow was born 1800 May 11 in Carlyle, Nicholas, Kentucky and died 1872 Aug 21 in Van Buren County, Iowa. He married abt 1819 to Elizabeth Wood who was born 1803 Feb in Massachusetts and died 1877 June 28 in Winchester, Van Buren, Iowa. Both are buried at the Winchester Cemetery in Winchester.

Edward was a son of Jesse Enlow (1768-1845) and Eleanor Wilson (1774-1849). He was named for his mother’s father, Edward Wilson.

Edward and Elizabeth had 11 children:

  1. Amos Wood b. 1820 Jan 1, died 1862 May 10
  2. Hannah Bunty b. 1822 Feb 22, died 1822 Feb 26
  3. William Henry b. 1823 Aug 28 in Adams Co., Ohio, died April of 1904, married 1856 June 5 in Birmingham, Van Buren, Iowa to Laura J. Stonebraker b. 1836 March 16 in , Washington Co., Maryland, died 1891 June 28 in Birmingham, Van Buren, Iowa.
  4. Mary Jane b. 1824 Nov 15 in Ohio, died 1895 Jan 2 in Chautauqua Co., Kansas, married William S. Hackney b. 1820 March 17 in Ohio and died 1891 June 2 in Chautauqua Co., Kansas. Direct line.
  5. Lucien (Lucian) Lafayette b. 1826 Aug 23, died 1832 June 15
  6. Eleanor (Elinor) Watson b. 1828 Aug 1, died 1828 Aug 30
  7. George Andrew b. 1829 July 10, died 1830 April 18
  8. Edward Albert b. 1832 Feb 11, died 1833 March 10
  9. Ann Elizabeth b. 1833 March 17 in Ohio, died 1883 Dec 12. I read that she married Hershey Blackstone, born 1834 in Ohio. Instead I find her in the census married to a W. E. Blackstone.
  10. Susannah Amanda b. 1836 Oct 7 in Iowa, died 1900 Jan 8 in Fairfield, Jefferson, Iowa. 1866 Feb 13 she married Andrew Bradford b. 1840 Dec 15 in Patriot, Switzerland, Indiana, died 1899 Dec 4 in Fairfield, Jefferson, Iowa.
  11. Carolina Matilda b. 1839 May 8, died 1839 Sept 18.

We find the family in the census in 1820 in Scott, Adams, Ohio.

A confusing entry. 1 male under 10 would be Amos Wood, and the 16 to 26 year old male would be Edward. No female is given. The Susannah WOOD living two houses away could possibly be Elizabeth WOOD’s mother.

As far as I’m aware, the couple moved to Jacksonville, Ohio in 1820. I’ve been unable to locate the family in the 1830 census. They’ve been reported as moving in 1835 to Carthage, Illinois, and on to Lee Co., Iowa that same year. But the bio of son, William Henry Enlow gives them in Iowa by 1833 but daughter Ann is given as born 1833 in Ohio.

They appear in the 1838 census in Lee Co., Iowa.

They are in the 1840 census in Van Buren Co., Iowa.

William S. Hackney and Mary Jane Enlow

The following was written Sept 29 1931 by Sadie Hackney CROCKETT, wife of Samuel Kelly.

Samuel Kelly Crockett was born in Boone Co. MO on Oct 6 1855. His father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in 1871 and from which time his home has been in the above named county.

Sarah Elizabeth Hackney was born in Van Buren Iowa, Dec. 4, 1857. Her father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in the year 1872. Then to Montgomery Co. KS in 1876 and to Washington Co. Kans in 1878 and in this last named county Samuel Kelly Crockett and Sarah Elizabeth Hackney were married on Dec. 21 1882. Came to Chautauqua Co. immediately following the marriage and have made their home here. In this Co., their eight children were born, Six of whom lived to maturity.

William S. HACKNEY was born 17 March 1820 in Ohio to William HACKNEY and Sally SHANNON.

He married, 29 Dec. 1842, in Van Buren Co. IA., Mary Jane ENLAW, daughter of Edward Wilson ENLAW and Elizabeth WOOD. Mary Jane was born 15 Nov. 1824 in Ohio and died 2 Jan 1895 at age 70 in Chautauqua Co. KS. She is buried at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Chautauqua.

William S. HACKNEY died 2 June 1881 at about 61 in Chautauqua Co. KS and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Chautauqua.

William and Mary Jane were married 38 years and had the following children:

  1. Amos S. b. 25 Nov 1843 IA (seen in Van Buren censuses), died 26 2 Sept. 1915, is buried at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Chautauqua Co. KS. Fought in Civil War, union. Co. H, 5 Iowa Vol. Inf. Sarah wrote of watching her father and Amos both go off to fight in the Civil War when she was a little girl. He married 20 Nov. 1879 to Julia E. Source for dates: Lloyd McKenney family bible, which has Amos born 25 November 1843).
  2. Charles b. 1847 IA. Seen in the 1850 Van Buren Co., census. Charles perhaps died before the 1860 census. He isn’t recorded in the family bible.
  3. William b. 28 Feb 1850 IA, was married 11 April in 1872 and died 26 of October in 1915 according to Lloyd McKenney’s family bible. His middle name appears to have been France but this is difficult to make out. Seen in the 1860 Van Buren Co. census. Source for dates: Lloyd McKenney family bible.
  4. Parris Wood b. 5 Jan 1855, died unknown. Sarah Hackney recorded that Parris went to California during “the gold rush”. She stated he’d found gold and would be going to Mexico before returning. He was never heard from again. I’ve since uncovered more information on Parris, of a marriage in Oregon, and a child, and possible separation or divorce. I don’t know whether the family knew about this or not. I’ll cover Parris in a separate post. Source for his birthdate is the McKenney family bible.
  5. Sarah Elizabeth “Sadie” b. 4 Dec. 1857 in IA married Samuel Kelly CROCKETT 21 December 1882. She died 22 March 1946. Source for dates: Lloyd McKenney family bible.
  6. A daughter named Susan was born in 1862. She is not in the family bible but is observed in the 1870 and 1880 censuses with the family.
  7. George Ross HACKNEY b. 23 Aug 1864, died 19 Nov. 1890 at about 26 and is buried at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Chautauqua Co. KS. Source for dates: Lloyd McKenney family bible.

William S. HACKNEY served in the Co. H, 5 Iowa Inf. Sergt. Wm. S. Hackney, e. June 24, 1861, disd. July 12, 1861, disab.

THE CENSUS DATA

The 1846 Wapello census shows the Hackneys. I will write of the Skilman Doughty family in the post on Parris and their possible significance in appearance on the same page of the census together.

William’s wife, Mary Jane, and children are living with her parents in Van Buren Co. IA in the 1850 census. William is not with them.

William HACKNEY, age 30, is seen in the 1850 Oregon Territory, Washington Co., Portland census. Though his birth place is given as Indiana, this is our William Hackney. He is recorded next to William Baker to whom his sister Isabel was married. The Bakers moved out to Oregon, as did Jesse L. Hackney.

A William HACKNEY is also given as in 1845 Portland census.

If William was in OR in 1845, then it may fit with the gap in births, Amos born in 1845 and Charles born in 1847. Then William S. appears to have returned with or met William BAKER in Portland OR in 1850. William BAKER and Isabel had migrated to Oregon by 1854.

The Hackney family is in the 1852 Union, Van Buren, Iowa census.

There are SCHAEFFERS from OH on the other side of the HACKNEYS as well. H. Q. SCHAEFFER 34 and Nancy. This is a Hiram SCHAEFFER and was still living near the HACKNEYS in 1870. By 1870 Jeremiah SHAFFER was in Jasper Co. IA, where Elijah BARTOW had been since 1850. Cyrus BARTOW, a brother of Elijah, had also gone to Van Buren Co.

Jeremiah SCHAEFFER (SHAFFER) was married to Elizabeth BARTOW, sister of Mary BARTOW who married Robert Eugene MCKENNEY. Robert Eugene MCKENNEY was in the 1850 Monroe Co. OH census, in which G. W. MCKENNEY Sr. also appeared.

William S. HACKNEY’s granddaughter, Vera CROCKETT, married James Albert MCKENNEY, grandson of G. W. MCKENNEY Sr.

Thomas Evans COLE b. 1842 in OH Washington Co. ends up on pg 83D of the Iowa, Wapello County, Center census in 1880. His wife is Mary Jane PICKEN.

William Hackney and Sarah Shannon

William Hackney was born 1794 in Virginia and died before 1846, in either Logan Co., IL or Iowa. On 1815 Nov 24 in Pike Co., Ohio he married Sarah Shannon.

I’ve yet to locate William’s parents but I’ve located Sarah’s, which I will write of in another post. They were Patrick Shannon and Elizabeth Shepherd.

William and Sarah had 9 children:

  1. Thomas S. b. 1814-1819 in Ohio
  2. Jacob Tivis b. 1816 Sep 20 in Pike Co., OH, died 1897 in Winfield, Cowley, Kansas. About 1839 in Logan Co., Illinois he married Lucy Chapman who was born about 1816 in Ohio to James Chapman. He married 2nd a woman named Mary in Logan County, Illinois. Jacob Tivis moved to Winfield, Cowley, Kansas. His son, William Patrick Hackney, was a state senator. I’ll cover this family in another post.
  3. William S. b. 1830 March 17 in Ohio, died 1891 June 2 in Chautauqua Co. KS, married 1842 Dec 29, Mary Jane Enlow b. 1824 Nov 15 in Ohio, died 1895 Jan 2 in Chautauqua Co., Kansas. Direct line. This family moved from Van Buren to Chautauqua County, Kansas, then to Washington County, Kansas, and perhaps eventually back to Chautauqua County as William and Mary were buried there. I cover this family in another post.
  4. Joseph S. b. abt. 1822 in Ohio, died 1880 July 30 in Washington, Washington, Kansas, married 1846 March 23 in Wapello, Iowa to Catherine Strickland. This family also moved to Washington County, Kansas.
  5. Jesse L. b. abt. 1822, died probably before 1870, married 1847 Aug 5 in Wapello, Iowa to Emily Smith. I’ve failed to located him in the 1850 census but perhaps find him in Portland later, serving out of there during the Civil War. I’m not confident yet it is our Jesse L. but I do know his wife remarried to Nathaniel P. Cory before 1870 and later to a Clark, leading me to believe he had died. I’ll cover this family in another post.
  6. Margaret Ellen b. abt. 1824 in Ohio, died 1863 in Wapello, Iowa, married 1845 Nov 27 in Wapello to Paris Caldwell b. abt. 1816 in Virginia, died 1899 in Wapello. I will cover this family in another post.
  7. Elizabeth Sarah b. abt. 1826 married David Johnson before 1846. I’ve yet to locate her after 1840.
  8. Isabel Frances “Fanny” b. abt. 1828 in Ohio married 1st Charles Nelson 1844 Dec 5 in Wapello, then married 2nd William W. Baker on 1849 March 4 in Wapello. I will cover this family in another post.
  9. Theodore Patrick “Dose” b. 1833 July 25, died 1899 Nov 6 in Whitehall, Greene, Illinois, married 1856 Sep 9 in Van Buren, Iowa to Elizabeth Day. She died 1864 March 17 in Whitehall, Greene, Illinois and Theodore next married Mrs. M. Cary (Caroline) Lawrence. Theodore and Elizabeth are buried at the Whitehall Cemetery in Whitehall, Greene County, Illinois.

Son, Jacob Tivis’ bio gives him as born in Pike Co. OH, moving to IN in 1825 and then to IL in 1828. Land records and census shows the HACKNEYs instead in OH in 1824 (land record) and 1830 (census) and in IL in 1840 (census). The children give their birthplaces as OH, though in the 1850 OR census an individual who may be William S. HACKNEY gives a birthplace of IN.

“Jacob T. Hackney, born in Pike Co., Ohio, Sept. 20, 1816; went to Indiana in 1825, to Illinois in 1828, and came to this county often during the last five years, but came to stay in March, 1880.”

Land records connect William Hackney with Delaware Co. Ohio in 1824 and 1825.

Hancock County was created in 1820 and Organized in 1828. It was formed from portions of Delaware and Logan Counties. In 1845, a portion of Wyandot County was formed from Hancock.

Perhaps about 1826 the family migrated to Amanda, Hancock, Ohio. In April of 1826, WIlliam Hackney was elected a justice of FIndlay Township.

1828 finds them in Crawford, Wyandot, Ohio.

The first settlers of Crawford Township were not blind to the necessities of education, and, as early as 1828, erected a schoolhouse on what is now the southeast quarter of Section 26. Among the first teachers were William Hackney and Adeline Potterfield.

From 1828 Oct to 1831 March, William served as an auditor in Hancock County.

William HACKNEY was “auditor” in Hancock Co. Ohio from October 1828 to March 1831. He was followed by Thomas F. Johnston in March 1831, who resigned, then a Joseph C. SHANNON who was appointed to fill the vacancy in June, 1832, and served until his death in May 1836.

I don’t see Joseph C. SHANNON on the 1830 census. Hancock Co. didn’t exist in 1820.

Land records connect William Hackney with Sangamon, Illinois and Springfield, Logan, Illinois in 1837. Another land record from 1839 is for Springfield, Logan, Illinois, and they are show in the 1840 census there.

William was a schoolteacher at Logan. Reference is made to William Hackney in the book HISTORY OF LOGAN COUNTY, ILLINOIS, published by Interstate Publishing, Chicago, 1896 and reproduced by Unigraphic, Inc. 1973.

At a meeting of the Old Settlers’ Association on September 23, 1875, James RANDOLPH, speaking after Jacob Tivis HACKNEY, reminisced about “Brush College”, where William HACKNEY was the first teacher: “It was a most primitive structure, not a particle of iron or glass or sawed lumber was used in its construction; it was built of logs with the cracks daubed with mud; the roof was of clapboards kept in place by weight poles, which were pinned fast to the wall; the door was of clapboards and had wooden hinges and a wooden lock with a buckskin latch-string hanging out….The desks were of hewed puncheons driven in to the wall under the windows…We sat with our backs to the teacher so as to face the light and the desks….the chimney was made of sticks and mud. … In cold weather a large fire was kept up, built against a huge back-log, to put which in place required the strength of the master and several of the larger boys.”

William likely died before 1846 as his wife Sarah is enumerated in the 1846 Wapello County, Iowa census with Jacob T., “Joseph L.” and William S.

I have yet to find Sarah Hackney in the 1850 census.

1856 shows her in Van Buren living with her granddaughter, Helen, from daughter Isabel Frances Hackney’s first marriage to Charles Nelson. Grandson Charles W. Nelson is in the Edward Enlow household in Union, Van Buren with Mary Jane Enlow Hackney, whose husband William S. Hackney is in Portland Oregon with his brother-in-law William W. Baker. The 1850 census shows Isabel in the Wapello County, Iowa census in the household of her sister and brother-in-law Paris Caldwell, but in 1849 on March 4 she married William W. Baker in Wapello. The Stonebraker shown here would be a relative of Laura J. Stonebraker who marries William Henry Enlow in 1856 in Van Buren.

1860, she has moved to Illinois with her granddaughter Helen, living in the household of her son T. P. Helen’s brother, Charles, is out in Portland with his mother and stepfather.

Sarah is living with her son Theodore Patrick and his family.
