John J. McKendree may be John James McKendree. He is a merchant. In 1850 Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia census, he is married to Elizabeth A., also born in South Carolina.They have three children listed, John J., William T. and Charlie, all born in Georgia.
In the 1860 census (same location as 1850), John and Elizabeth have five children, John J., William I., Thomas S.(my ancestor), Edward B. and Rosa.An Edward Thurmon is living with them and listed as a merchant.
In the 1870 census (same location), Rosa is Lizzie, and Virginia has joined the family as the youngest child.Again, all the children are born in Georgia.
Can't seem to find John J. McKendree in 1840.I need help in finding out more about him.Who were his parents?Was he a descendant of the famous Rev. William McKendree?Did his people live in Virginia before moving to South Carolina?
