I am searching for the parents of Henry McKinney and Harriet Adkins(Acres?) McKinney. These are my gggrandparents, and there are no living relatives who remembers who their parents were. I believe that they are ex-slaves, and the resided near Byhalia MS. The first records that I have located of the Henry and Harriet are on the 1880 census, with two daughters that I have been unable to find additional information on, Della and Rena. The census report also indicates that Henry may have been born in TN.
I also located a marriage certificate for these two, and found a person by the name of Soloman? McKinney, who witnessed the document. Could this possibly be a cousin, or better yet, a brother?
On the 1900 census, I found Henry & Harriet with the children that I am aware of, who are my ggrandfather, Arthur, along with Susie, Sylvester and others.
I have little information regarding Harriet, I do not know anything about her family.
If any of this sounds familiar, please email me or post a follow-up message.
