As you can see it has been a while since I have been on this Site. On the McKay names you listed I know of Iver and Archibald ?. Christopher had a son named John b 1785 in NC.
II never found a wife for him or brothers etc. or where he came from They moved to Sumpter SC in about 1820. if there is no connecting detals for Emilia, John Lloyd, James I, William J, Ann Eliza, John Pointer, Daniel, ... It probably will not help.
Thanks for the reply

I am looking for the origins of Christopher McKay who first shows up in Bladen land records in 1784 in the Big Swamp area. Later this area became Robison Co. He had a son named John McKay who is my GGGGFather.
Christopher was in Captain Whites Militia, 1784 with Alexander McKay Robeson Co. I have the list.
There was a Christopher McKay on the famous voyage of the "Hector" that landed in Pictou Nova Scotis in 1773. I have not been able to prove a connection.
I have not found a wife or other children for Christopher.
Thus I have no siblings for John McKay

I found a booklet "Memoirs of Joseph Richard KEMP" at an estate sale this past weekend. This booklet has lots of Bladen County McKAY names, including an entry "Old Mr Ivey McKay came to this cuntry after he was a man grown, he married a woman by the name of MILLER....". There's a lot of info in the booklet but it's pretty hard to untangle and I haven't finished trying. It was recorded in the order in which it was received and it appears that the pages were in no specific order. I would be glad to scan it for you if you think there could be a connection. Some of the McKAY given names are: Archibald, Emilia, John Lloyd, James I, William J, Ann Eliza, John Pointer, Daniel, ... Some of the surnames are: KEMP, WHITE, HARVEY, SALTER, DOWEY, FITZRANDOLPH, STREETY, ...
