Hi!! I'm Rosemary McKenney Mahan and I have been researching the McKenney line in Westmoreland County, so I will enter what I have found at the Westmoreland County Courthouse to date for McKenney/McKinney/McKenny. Please understand that what I have is sketchy because I have not been able to "connect all the dots" as such, but the information may be of some interest to some of you. Hopefully some of the names will be a link to others out there. There are so many of us here in Westmoreland County, it will make your head swim (I know it does mine). Here goes . . .

Surnames: McKenney, Hogan
My grandfather, Walter Nelson Hogan, had a sister, Dora Lynn Hogan, (B-27 Feb 1870, D-17 June 1941), who married a John Presley McKenney (B-3 Mar 1855, D-18 Apr 1918). Their children were: William, Mary, Samuel, John Presley and Walter. My records show John Presley McKenney's parents were Samuel H. McKenney and Precilla R. ? There seems to be some connection here.

I have been looking for several years for more information on my grandfather Walter Hogan's ancestors. I am back to 1811, Richard, whose parents were William and Jane Hogan. Anyone out there who may be able to help, I certainly would appreciate it.

I don't know anything of the Hogans, but I know that John Presley McKenney (b. 1855) was the son of Samuel and Priscilla R. (Sutton) McKenney. Priscilla married Samuel January 5, 1847 in Westmoreland Co, VA. She died May 9, 1883 and her son John Presley supplied the info on the death record. Priscilla R. (Sutton) McKenney was the daughter of William and Priscilla (Brown) Sutton. William Sutton died about 1832. Priscilla (Brown) Sutton died in March of 1850 leaving a will mentioning, among other children, her daughter "Cilla" (Priscilla R. McKenney). I have more info on this Sutton family if anyone is interested.

I have a obituary for Deacon James McKinley Nelson:
born- Sept. 16, 1913 in Westmoreland Co. Va.
died- Aug. 15, 1991 at St. Mary's Hospital in Richmond Va.
Services and Interment were held on Wed. Aug. 21, 1991 1:00 pm. at Mt. Olive Holiness Church, Nomini Grove, Va.

Parents: John H. Nelson & Gertrude McKenney-Nelson

Immediate Survivors:
Wife: Mrs. Viola C. Nelson, Nomini Grove, Va.
Sister in law: Mrs. Ruby Nelson, Center Cross, Va.

I found this obituary in my late grandmothers things, her name was Nettie Corbin-Nelson, from Tapp. Va., she married the late Jacob E. Nelson from Westmoreland Co. Va. I'm not sure how Deacon James McKinley Nelson is related to my grandfather, but, I know he is because the sister in law that is mentioned was married my grandfathers brother the late Edward Nelson. If anything looks familiar to you please contact me, there maybe some connection. Thanks in advance.

I am looking for the parents of a Polly McKenny b. abt 1819. She lived in the household of Samuel and Elizabeth Sandy at least from 1850 thru 1880 according to the census. In the 1880 census, she used Mary as her first name. It appears she may have been taken in as a child, but not adopted. In 1880, Samuel had died, but she stayed with Elizabeth and never married. I do not know when she died.
