Attached is a list of the old forts with Fort McKenzie that Virgil talks about in his book (page 6).

From: MYERS' HISTORY OF WEST VIRGINIA, Volume 1, Chapter XII, pages
159-181. Compiled by S. Myers, 1915. Published by The Wheeling
News Lithograph Company

MAMc cut and pasted the information pertaining to Fort McKenzie:

This fort was located on the South Branch of the Potomac. Exact location not known. Probably erected by Captain Robert McKenzie some time prior to the year 1757.

From Sheryl Kelso: July, 2014: CUMBERLAND (AP) ? Virgil McKenzie digs the past. The Cresaptown native has spent the past 30 years unearthing remnants of the region's Native American civilization and of settlers who were heading west. With help from family members. Mr. McKenzie began exhuming arrowheads, tools and other Indian artifacts hidden beneath the earth of a Seymour Bottom, W.Va., farm he owned in 1968. Mr. McKenzie said his former home served as an Indian camp through the late 1700s. One of the family's first discoveries there was a bust of an Indian warrior or chief. The facial features are still distinguishable on the reddish clay sculpture, which stands about six inches high. Mr. McKenzie's son, Mark, then only 9, found the bust in a pile of rocks on the property. "I wasn't sure what it was, but I thought it was something valuable," Mark McKenzie said. Over the next four years, Mr. McKenzie found more than 20 arrowheads, several tomahawk heads and tools used to clean animal skins and prepare the pelts used for clothing. His centuries-old discoveries adorn a second-floor room of his Maryland Avenue residence and are detailed in a book he published a few years ago. Three rounded stones sit on his desk. In a prior life, the smooth, egg-size rocks served as ammunition for a leather sling, a common weapon used against other tribes and white settlers. The most bizarre item in his collection is a denture plate chiseled from stone. It follows the curvature of the jawbone and appears to have been worn as a set of dentures. These ersatz teeth gave their wearer a stone edge with which to gnaw food. Mr. McKenzie's collection includes more than American Indian artifacts. Years ago Mr. McKenzie and his wife, Mary, were newlyweds living east of Cumberland. While chopping wood one day McKenzie's ax blade struck a ball from a muzzleloader embedded deep in a tree. He believes the ball to be at least 100 years old. His most recent discovery is what the McKenzies believe may be a button from a British soldier who fought in the Revolutionary War. At first glance he and his son thought they'd found a coin. Mr. McKenzie said the insignia on the button hints it may have decorated the coat of one of King George Ill's men.

My Father Ambrose R. McKenzie told Me,Joseph E.McKenzie,this story in July 1995. We were standing on Wills Creek AVE. in Cumberland,Maryland. Dad was looking down into the little creek just about 100 feet up from 307 Wills Creek AVE, Walter and Catherine McKenzie built this house in 1923. Dad told me
that His Father,Walter,was somewhere in this area when he fell down the bank and injured himself. Walter was ill from that day until he died. Dad said Walter died from liver problems and he always thought that it was because of that fall by the creek.

From Leo Mckenzie, son of Walter Mckenzie. Leo's recollection of the incident is "He Jumped across the stream with armfull of cucumbers".

Walter E. McKenzie never drank whiskey in his life but made his living working in the distillery business. My Father told me that Walter knew everything about distilling whiskey.

On the same day Dad told me about the little house just up the street 305 Wills Creek Ave. from 307 Wills Creek AVE. on the other side. Dad said that during the Civil War it was a Mess hall and the Soldiers that were training at Campabella, this is Latin for "Camp of war" would eat at this house log cabin at that time. Allegany High School now stands on Campabella. The School's nickname is the campers.

From Leo Mckenzie, Son of Walter Mckenzie. Leo said "The mess hall was really the home of "Miss Miller's parents who sold pastry to soldiers when they were training,Shooting 58 Caliber rifles. The trench they laid in to fire their rifles was filled in to extend Allegany High around 1980".
