Dortha, There were other McKinney cousins who lived in Texas but I do
not know any names. My Great Grandparents were Rhoda Mildred Warford
George W. McKinney. George disgraced the family in 1892. He was
buried in Purves Live Oak Cemetery, but in a different section and
under the name of C W McKinney. The story is that when they moved
from Florida about 1885 to Erath county, TX they stopped at some
cousins in/near McKinney TX before going on to Erath county. I have
never been able to identify with whom they visited or where they
went. I do know they purchased the farm in March of 1885 in Erath
I descend from Rhoda and George's second child Henry Ford McKinney.
Henry married first Florence Rasmussen. I descend from this
marriage. Henry married second a first cousin of Florence's Lucile
"Lucy" Jane Rasmussen. Henry and Lucy had 6 children.
I would love to continue visiting with you.
Ann, I would like to know more about your McKinney family. My mother
Ella Jane McKinney McElroy. She was born in 1893 in Palo Pinto Co., TX, to
John James (J J) McKinney and Eliza Jane Pledger McKinney.
