Thank you, Lois. Mary was born about 1853 in SC. D/o Thomas and Amanda ( Mandy ) McKey--Her younger sister Nancy L/ Liza N. married John C. mcKey in about 1882. I suspect that John C, nephew of Thomas, son od David William McKey, married Mary J 2/9/1873 in Nac. By the 1880 census , John C shows up in Thomas' H/h with marital status as "widow". 2 years after the census he marries his other cousin Nancy L/ Liza N. in Nac with whom it appears 3 children are born, Eva Jessie ( my wife's g'mother, Zubie, and John E. ( Jack ) all born between 1888 and 1895 + or -.
