My 5th great-grandfather was William Mackay.He was born about 1772 in New York and died in Indiana.He was married to Catherine Sight (Sete), born 1176 (Christenend on 24 June, 1776 in Southold, Suffolk, England. They had 10 children, all born in Montgomery Co., New York:Abraham, b. (about) 1795, Lida, b. (abt) 1799, Benjamin, b. (abt) 1801, Jno (John), b. abt 1803, Hiram, b. abt 1805, James, b. abt 1807, Mariah, b. abt 1809, Sally, b. abt 1811, William Jr., b. abt. 1813, and Nancy (my 4th-g-grandmother) b. 1 June 1797 and died 1 Sept 1882.
I am trying to find our when my Mackay relatives came to America and where did they come from in Scotland?If anyone is related to any of these people, please send me an e-mail.
For some reason, my relation, Nancy, has her name spelled "Mackey" although the others have the "a" in it.
