Thank you for the information, which I also see on Find A Grave. I also have a John H. McKinney buried at the Harshbarger Cemetery in Atwood, Piatt County, Illinois. I found in birth and death records for 1856 and 1857 in Madison Twp., Highland County, Ohio, the birth of John H. McKinney on August 7, 1856 to Robert McKinney and Mother named Herreica Limes. The mother's name should be Hurressa. I know this because I have paperwork she herself sent to the government about her father, William Limes, about his veteran's pension. She signed her name as Hurressa Rose. I just now got in probate papers for Robert McKinney that show he died in McLean County Illinois on or about October 16, 1865. So there are a lot of fragmented pieces and I am trying to make some sense of them.

Are you related to anyone in this McKinney line?

Thank you.
