There was a 19th century western PA Rev. William McKinney (died March
13, 1907) who, with his wife Eliza McKee, went to Alabama to work in a
Reformed Presbyterian Mission. Their daughter, Lulu Jeanette McKinney,
later became the Registrar at Geneva College, retiring in June, 1952
(died June 14, 1973 at about age 97). Don't know anything about when
this family arrived here.
On the other hand, I do know that Eliza McKee McKinney was a daughter
of Robert C. McKee of the Wilkinsburg RP Church (born 1821 at
Castleblaney, County Monaghan, died December 29, 1872). Joseph McKee,
her grandfather, arrived with his wife and children in 1828. My line
descends from John A. McKee (born 1812), oldest brother of Robert C.
