4 Group 04 ME/NY   GROUP 4 participants, except for MacDougall, share the common ancestor John McKenney b. ca 1703 in Maine. Some of this line are known to have settled in New York State in the 19th century. More information about the lines are on the worksheet. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

5 Group 5   GROUP 5 has a single participant whose y-pattern has matched no McKinney but who does have an excellent match with several in the GANN project. A Gann participant has added his results to our study for ease of comparison. The McKinney participant has a fairly good paper trail to one of Mordecaiís g-grandsons.

6 Group 06 VA/KY   GROUP 6 participants include a SMITH (with an illegitimate birth in his ancestry), MEGONNIGIL/McGONAGIL lines that likely have a genetic link several hundred years ago possibly before surnames became so solidified, and TMcKinney who may share a very, very early ancestor in Ireland.Several in the group trace their ancestries to McKenneys from Harrison County, Virginia (now WV) and Butler County, Kentucky.†† xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

7 Group 07 Raley/McK   GROUP 7 has one McKinney participant who has a genetic match with two RALEYS who have added their information to our study but no matches to any McKinneys currently in the project. A McKinney family tradition of a Raley biological father is supported by DNA.It appears that a "new" McKinney surname haplotype began in 1865. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

10 Group 10 James - NC   GROUP 10 participants have paper trails to James McKenney and his wife, Mary Ballard, who were Quakers. They were married in Virginia but lived in North Carolina where there are excellent Quaker records. It was thought by some researchers that James was a grandson of Mordecai. The Y-DNA pattern is completely different and proves that he was NOT related to that extensive line.

11 Group 11 Irish McK/K McKinney & Kenny GROUP 11 is an Irish group. Two McKinneys have a very good paper trail to John McKinney b. ca 1781 NC who m. Margaret (aka Peggy) Lee in Russell County, Virginia. It is likely the other McKinney is closely related. It was thought by some researchers that this John McKinney was a son of James McKenney & Mary Ballard, Quakers, of North Carolina. Genetic genealogy has proved that he was not! (See Group 10).The two Kenny surnamed lines came to North America in the mid 1800ís. HKenny appears to be more closely related to the McKinneys than to JKenny.It's possible that one or both of the Kenny matches are due to convergence.

12 Group 12 Mordecai   GROUP 12 is the Mordecai group and has five participants. One participant has a superb paper trail to Mordecaiís grandson, Collin McKinney b. 1761 in NJ who eventually settled in Texas. Collin was a very high profile person who has had much written about him. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
