Came on this thread while chasing posts about McKee and McKie.Namely, Wilson Co TN McKee and an Isaac McKee that was at Wilson Co TN after 1810 and was from Shenandoah Co VA on the 1810 census.This post by Louise McKy is about number 25 in the thread I followed and what I am very curious about is the use of MCCOY, cut and pasted as follows:
.................Sarah McCoy, through her mother, was a niece of the Hon. David Redick; member of the Colonial Council and, for a term, President of the Province of Pennsylvania. Her grandmother, Rachel Hoge, was of a family dating back in this country to 1685, when the first of the name m.. Barbara, d/o Sir James Hume, of Scotland. Thirty years later, their son, John Hoge, m. the Welsh princess "Gwentholyn" so well known in Lancaster County society, between 1720 and 1750. Descendants were the Rev. Moses D. Hoge, of Richmond,Va; Hon. J. Hoge Tyler, late Governor of Virginia; Hon. Robert J. Walker, Governor of Mississippi, U.S. Senator, etc; the latter being her grandson.
In the above, is the name MCCOY also used as MCKEE in other posts?
Which is the correct surname use in this message if anyone knows???
(Reddick being a given name apparently used by McKee and then seeing this as Reddick McCoy makes me wonder which is correct)
