There was a James McKaig in KY ca. 1840-50. He was the son of John McKaig & Ann Shaw of Guildford, North Carolina. They moved to McMinnville, TN, early 1800's.John died about 1835 and left his estate to his 3 sons, John, Francis and James. John and Francis (my line)sold out and came to Dade Co, GA. James stayed in TN, then moved - possibly to KY. If you think this is your connection, feel free to email me. I will provide what verification I have.
