    • Joshua McKenzie is buried in the Lower Twin Road Cemetery in Levin Township, Ross County, Ohio. He was a Revolutionary War veteran and served as a drummer in Lt. Col. Ludwig Weltner's German Battalion for approximately three years. He received a Federal Warrant for 100 acres of land on January 15, 1793 (that being Federal Warrant Number 11, 513) for his service in the Revolutionary War. Source: Revolutionary Records, Harry Wright Newman, Genealogical Publishing Company (1993)

      According to the Muster Rolls of Maryland Troops in the American Revolution (Baltimore Maryland Historical Society 1900), he was a new recruit on September 5, 1778 at White Plains. Another record shows the "date he was passed" that being April 28, 1778. All of the records also reflect that his brother, Moses McKenzie was also in the same battalion and also served as a drummer boy. The same Muster Rolls also show that Joshua was paid for his service for the months of July, August, September and October, 1779. The records further reflect that Joshua and Moses also served in Lt. Col. Weltner's battalion from 1 August 1780 until 15 November 1783. During that period of time the records reflect that they served as Privates.

    1793 Allegany County Property Given to Soldiers Who Served in the RW
    This page is from "A list of Property in Allegany County 1793". It is page 71 of the pdf from which it was copied. It reflects the names of Joshua McKenzie, Moses McKenzie and Jesse McKinley (sic). It also reflects Roderick McKinsey, Thomas McKinsey and Patk McKinsey. None of these last three individuals have ever been connected to the McKenzies of Early Maryland, i.e. those individuals who descended from John MacKInzie/McKenzie (b. 1687)

    Gravestone of Joshua McKenzie (b. 1764)
    Gravestone of Joshua McKenzie (b. 1764)
    Located in Twin Township Cemetery, Bourneville, Ohio. Per Bobbie McKenzie, a very detailed serious McKenzie researcher, she advised in February, 2011 as follows: "I want to point out that the picture does not document his actual grave. There has been a debate over where Joshua is really buried for years. When I first visited Ross Co in 1976, info at the genealogy center was that he was buried on the family farm near Lower Twin Rd., Twin Twshp. Because other family members are buried in Moore's Cem, the Nathaniel Massie Chapter D.A.R. placed a bronze marker there for him in 1924. Moore Cemetery is located on the south side of U.S. Route 50, west of the intersection with Maple Grove Road and north of Cattail Run. In fact, I can't find a cemetery named Twin Twshp. I was last there in 1990 and the stone in the photo was not there. (??)If one visits Findagrave, you'll find it is a memorial stone not an actual grave marker. Still elusive after all these years! - Bobbie McKenzie
