I am told that my father's brother ,David Lee McKinney, was named after my ggg-grandfather. That is the only clue I have to his name. He lived in Missouri and was interested in the Indians in the Indian Nation. Ever fall the indians went into Arkanass to the White river to gather nuts and berrys and have cancel meeting. David went to Arkanass to see the indians for him self, and met a indian woman who ask him to eat with them. He spent two weeks with the indians, and danced ever night with the indian woman. In the end, he married the indian woman, and took her back to Missouri with him. Neather could speak the others language. I do not know for sure, but it is thought, that David had a chruch wedding later, to make things right with God and chruch. To this marriage, there were 6-8 children. 1. George Washington b.
