      Daniel McKenzie and Mary Ann Chapman moved to Allegany County before 1792 and settled on land south of Cumberland. Daniel received a Patent for the land from the State of Maryland (5) in 1795. According to information contained in the Patent, he was able to purchase the land from the State at that time because he had originally settled on it. Pursuant to an Act of the General Assembly, he was given a preference to purchase the land before it was offered for sale to anyone else. Ultimately, he purchased Lots No. 3552, 3554 and 3569. Michael McKenzie of Mt. Savage, Maryland provided the author with more information concerning Daniel?s patent in November, 2010. There is a compilation of Military Lot Patents on record in the Maryland State Archives. (5.1) Daniel?s patents are set forth on pages 0348 and 0349. There also is a map that reflects all of the Military Lots, Tracts and Escheats that were awarded or sold to individuals in the late 1700?s and which contains Daniel?s patented lots 3552, 3554 and 3569. located south of Cresaptown. Daniel sold some of his land (50 acres) to William Shaw (6) in 1797.(7) On January 26, 1805, John Logsdon and Daniel McKinsy sold portions of lots 3568 and 3569 to Emanual Custer. (8) Then, in 1810, Daniel McKinzie reacquired from William Shaw the same parcel of land Daniel had sold to him in 1797 (50 acres). (9)

      The Cumberland area was sparsely populated at the time Daniel McKenzie moved there. There were settlements in an area called Old Town as well as in Cumberland. (10) Daniel McKenzie along with Gabriel McKenzie, Josiah McKenzie, Moses McKenzie and Samuel McKenzie were listed as being some of the settlers living on land lying West of Fort Cumberland. (11)

      Per information supplied to the author by Michael McKenzie of Mt. Savage, Maryland in November, 2010, Daniel McKenzie was quite active in the years immediately after his relocation to the area west of Cumberland. According to a 1974 issue of the Heritage Press newsletter, the following was the bond contract for replacing a bridge in the Cumberland area: ??Pursuant to an order of the Levy Court the following bond as recorded this 2nd August 1796: Know all men by these presents that we, William Logsdon, John Logsdon, Ralph Logsdon and Daniel McKinzy are bound unto David Huffman, John Graham and Patrick Murdock for 747 pounds current money of the State. The condition: William Logsdon shall do and will and truly build and finish on or before 1st September, next, a good and sufficient wagon bridge over Wills Creektown of Cumberland at the place where the bridge lately stood, the said Bridge to be at least five feet higher than the late bridge, 16 feet wide with railing three feet high; he also to keep the same in good and sufficient repair for term of seven years and to rebuilt the same if carried away or destroyed, at his own cost except he not to replace, if the water rises over the bridge.? The Daniel McKinzy referenced was the son of Gabriel McKenzie (b. abt. 1715) . Gabriel lived in the Bald Knob area near Mount Savage, Maryland, where Earl Lepley?s property/residence currently is located as of November, 2010. Per the various maps referenced earlier, the Leplays currently live on the same 50 acres which Gabriel McKenzie owned in the 1790?s.

      The 1800 census lists (12) Daniel McKinzie living in the Upper Old Town, (13) Georges Creek section of the county. His age was recorded as being in excess of 45 years as was his wife. There were three males at home under the age of ten, two males between ten and sixteen, one female between ten and sixteen and another female between the age of sixteen and twenty-six. (14)

      The 1810 census lists Daniel McKinsey still living in the Upper Old Town, Georges Creek area. His age once again is listed as being in excess of 45. His wife was still alive. There was one male under the age of ten living with him, two males between ten and sixteen and one male between sixteen and twenty-six. There was one female between the age of sixteen and twenty-six residing in his household. (15)

      The 1820 census lists Daniel McKinsey and his wife and two males, ages between sixteen and twenty-six residing in the Election District Number 6. (16) There is no record of Daniel in the 1830 census, which coincides with the fact he died in 1825. There also is no mention of his wife, Mary, as being a head of household at the time that census was taken. (17)

      On June 9, 1812 Thomas Pollard conveyed 45 acres of property to Daniel McKenzie, which was referenced on plats at the time as ?Allegany Republican?. That property later became the subject of an Equity Case in Allegany County after Daniel died without leaving a will. (18) The property was later sold by order of the Court sitting in Equity and was acquired by (James) Moses McKenzie, Daniel?s youngest son. (19) It remained in the (James) Moses McKenzie branch of the family until approximately 1900 when it was sold to Daniel Annan and later became a dairy. Unfortunately, on approximately December 8, 1935 a fire destroyed the log cabin situated on the property that was constructed by Daniel McKenzie in the early 1800's. An article about the fire and the history surrounding the cabin appeared in the Cumberland Times on December 15, 1935. (20)

      In 1819, Daniel McKenzie and his wife, Ann McKenzie, were the sponsors at the Baptism of William McKenzie, born February 15, 1818 to parents, Samuel McKenzie and Rachel Durbin. The Baptism was held at St. Ignatius, the Roman Catholic Church in the Mt. Savage area, West of Cumberland, Maryland. (21) According to material compiled by Col. Gabriel T. McKenzie, the first McKenzies to emigrate to America were Catholic and came from Scotland. Maryland was a perfect choice for their new home since following the passage of the Act of Toleration in 1649, Maryland eventually became known as being a safe haven for Catholics.

      Daniel McKenzie died without a will in 1825. His estate was submitted for administration shortly thereafter. The administrator was his eldest son, William. The Inventory of the personal property of Daniel McKinzie was filed on 13 SEPT 1825. (22) The First Account reflects the names of the individuals who were owed money by Daniel at the time of his death. (23) The Second and Final Account reflects that the following individuals received money from the estate after the personal property was sold: Ann McKinsey, her one third (24) share totalling $29.17, and dividends of $8.33 were paid to Richard McKinsey, Samuel McKinsey, Daniel McKinsey, Aaron McKinsey, Moses McKinsey, William McKinsey and Mary Myers, wife of William Myers. (25) Interestingly, the shares were not precisely divisable. One share for $8.34 (one cent more) was given to the eldest son, William, who was serving as the administrator. Seven children were listed as having received dividends.

      Daniel McKenzie died before 7 SEPT 1825. Both he and Mary Ann Chapman were buried in the cemetery of St. Michael?s Church. (26)

      Endnotes

      1. In the handwritten notes of Col. Gabriel T. McKenzie, U.S. Army, Retired, he states on a page relating to James Moses McKenzie ?There is a family record filed with the estate and will of the above, James Moses McKenzie, in the Allegheny Courthouse in Cumberland, Maryland. Col. Gabriel T. McKenzie U.S. Army retired, great grandson of Moses filed said family record with Moses? will but mistakenly said Daniel, father of Moses, was son of Daniel, instead of correctly stating Moses was son of Daniel, son of Gabriel, son of John of AA County.? (Ed. Note: This passage appears on page 221 of the notes of Gabriel T. McKenzie, U.S. Army Retired in Volume 3 of the author, Michael A. McKenzie?s genealogical source documents). (Ed. Note: James Moses was one of Daniel McKenzie?s sons, see supra).

      2. The children of Daniel from this point through the end of the list were referenced in Equity Case #292, Allegany County Chancery Court records.

      3. In the 1820 census Aaron McKenzie was listed as "Aron McKinsey". It's quite possible the census taker did not know how to spell.

      4. In the Col. Gabriel T. MacKenzie genealogical research, a letter was written by J. F. Grant to Col. MacKenzie on December 13, 1929. In that letter J.F. Grant (who was born in 1854) recounts for Col. MacKenzie the names of the various sons of Daniel McKenzie (b. 1752). He starts by stating that the sons of Daniel (Ed. Note, b. 1752) were Aaron, Samuel, Richard, William, Moses (Ed.Note, actually James Moses) and Daniel, Jr.. He then lists the sons of each of the aforementioned individuals, as follows: ?Aaron?s (our Aaron McKenzie b. 1792) sons were: Daniel, (Ed.Note This Daniel is in our family?s line. This Daniel is referred to as Daniel IV in Col. MacKenzie?s notes so as to distinguish him from other Daniels born during the preceding and succeeding generations) William, Silas (sic), Samuel and John Ephriam. Samuel?s sons were Henry, Grant, Aaron and Albert. Richard?s sons were William, Dennis and Levi. William?s sons were George, Edward, Taylor, Perry, Walter and John. Moses? sons were Josiah, Thornton, Richard and Charles. Daniel, Jr. only had one son that I know of and his name was Henry.? The census records reflect that Aaron had two daughters. The author has not yet been able to determine their identity.

      In addition to the foregoing letter, J.F. Grant wrote another letter to Col. McKenzie on October 7, 1929, wherein he states: (James) Moses McKenzie, your great-grandfather, was not the son of Moses the revolutionary soldier but was a son of Daniel McKenzie.?

      10. Daniel McKenzie was taxed on his property in the early 1800's after the legislature passed the enabling legislation for the tax to be levied.
      The legislature . . . passed an act appointing Andrew Bruce, Even Gywnn and Joseph Cresap a board of commissioners for Allegany County, and directed the commissioners of Washington County to transmit to them a list of all the real and personal properties in the new county. (1789).
      The distance to Cumberland, the only voting place provided for in the Act constituting Allegany County, from Sideling Hill Creek on the east, and the Fairfax Stone on the west, was too great for the convenience of the people residing in those remote sections, and in 1799 the General Assembly passed an Act for laying Allegany County off into districts. The commissioners appointed were John B. Baell, David Hoffman, Thomas Stewart, William Shaw, George Robinette and Jesse Tomlinson, and the county was divided into six election districts, known as Glades, Selbyport, Westernport, Musselanes, Cumberland and Old Town.
      The levy court was composed of the justices of the peace of the county. Those who signed the first levy made for Allegany County, 1791, were Daniel Cresap, Jr., Thomas Beall of Samuel, James Prather, Samuel Barritt and John Bayard, . . . the total amount of the levy was 286 pounds, 7 shillings, 7 pence. The rate of taxation was fixed at 7 shillings, 3 pence on every 100 pounds of property in the county . . . In 1804 the levy was 22 s. 11 pence per hundred pounds of property . . . It is also worthy of note that this was the last instance in which the old English money designation was used in the levy court of Allegany County. From that time on the new order of dollars and cents was followed. Thomas and Williams, History of Allegany County, V.1, page 3-8.

      19. Deed from Thomas Perry, Trustee, to (James) Moses McKinsie dated December 4, 1851 recorded in Deed Book 6, page 580, Allegany County records. The property included land located in lot 3552, 3554 and 3569 in Allegany County. These lots "being the same lots described and mentioned in a Patent to Daniel McKinsey bearing date on the 14th day of November, 1795". It also included that tract or parcel of land known as Allegany Republican containing 45 acres described in a deed from Thomas Pollard to Daniel McKinsey.dated June 9, 1812.

      20. The article read as follows:
      Settler Log Home Prey to Flames
      The above is a picture of the McKenzie log house on Winchester Road, near Annan Knolls, destroyed a week ago by fire. It is known that the building was erected before 1800 by Daniel McKenzie, a pioneer settler. The county land records show that the large tract now comprises the former Daniel Annan Farm was patented to McKenzie in 1795 by the State of Maryland.
      McKenzie, it is thought, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and received military lots, as large tracts in the county were shown on the rough surveys. The farm was earlier known as the Moses McKenzie farm and comprised 435 acres from Cresaptown to the present Winchester railroad bridge. Moses McKenzie was a noted fox hunter and maintained a large pack of hunting dogs.
      The land records show one part of the acreage termed as ?Allegany Republican?, and two others, ?Contest? and ?Timberland?. Great stands of white pine and oak covered it. Josiah P. McKenzie, a grandson of Moses McKenzie, held title to the property until 1900 when the late Daniel Annan purchased it and improved the property and established a dairy. It was later laid out as a realty development.

      21. Davidson, Phyllis and Koch, Richard, St. Ignatius (now St. Patrick), Mt. Savage, MD, St. Mary, Cumberland, Maryland Parishioners, Marriages, Baptisms, and Deaths 1819-1844, (apparently self-published) at page 16. St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church (now St. Patrick?s) was the original Catholic Church in the Mt. Savage area, west of Cumberland, Maryland. The records of St. Ignatius were compiled by Phyllis Davidson and Richard T. Koch. Their task was made easier since the records were maintained in English and not Latin, as were the records of St. Luke?s. Mr. Gary E. Hindes of Wilmington, Delaware had hired a professional genealogist, Ms. Jane W. McWilliams (Annapolis, MD) to do research on his Logsdon ancestors. Material from the Maryland State Archives (MSA) that she sent Hindes identified the source as MSA M3461-St. Patrick Church, 201 North Centre Street, Cumberland, Maryland, but included only pages with Logsdon entries. Gary shared those pages with other Logsdon researchers, including Mr. Jim Logsdon of Columbus, Ohio who forwarded copies to Davidson and Koch. Subsequently, additional pages were obtained from the MSA to complete the first 50 pages, and some selected additional pages. The compilers advise in the forward that they have not exhausted the material at the MSA. They hoped that someday this particular manuscript would be expanded through 1863, when the cornerstone for the current church was laid and St. Ignatius was renamed St. Patrick (of Mt. Savage, MD).

      The compliers drew partially drew from A Century of Growth, Volume 1, the history of the Roman Catholic Church in Western Maryland, a book by Rev. Thomas J. Stanton. A copy of this book allegedly is available in the Frostburg Branch of the Allegany County, MD library. The Family History Center (LDS) in Salt Lake City also has a copy of the book. According to the compilers, because St. Mary?s Church in Cumberland was served co-jointly with St. Ignatius in Mt. Savage, they could not separate the history of the two churches. A quote from the Stanton?s book appears in the introduction of the compilation, as follows: ?St. Mary?s Church of Cumberland may truthfully be called the mother of all Churches of Allegany County. It is historically certain that Catholicity had an existence in Cumberland, although very shadowy at the beginning, as far back as the French and Indian War. . . . As far back as 1770, Joseph [Josiah] Frost must be added to the pioneer Catholics; and ten years later the Arnolds, the Porters and the Logsdons were dwelling at what became Arnold?s Settlement (later called Mt. Savage). . . . It was not until 1819 that the first resident pastor, Rev. James Redmond, was appointed to Cumberland. ? Various other pastors followed thereafter. Their initials appear next to many of the entries.

      22. Inventories, Allegany County Probate Records, filed 13 SEPT 1825. The total value of his personal property came to $185.14. The appraisers were Joseph P. Hillsay and George Seass. The appraisal was conducted on 7 SEPT 1825. Items mentioned in the Inventory include: one auld (old) wagon, $25.00, one bee hive, $1.25, one brown mare, $12.00, 5 hoggs (sic), $11.00, 5 shoates, $5.00, one 2 year auld steer, $4.50, wheat in the straw supposed to be 25 bushels, $15.62, rye in the stack, $3.00, one acre of buckwheat, $1.00, one stack of hay, $4.50, one feather bead, beadsted and furniture, $10.00, one shot gunn and shot pouch, $6.00, etc.

      23. Inventories, Estate Book No. 1, page 335, November 14, 1826, Allegany County, Maryland.

      24. It was the law of the State of Maryland at the time of this distribution that the surviving wife receive one third of the estate.

      25. Second and Final Return, Estate Book No. 1, page 343, Allegany County, Maryland, filed 13 MAR 1827.

      26. In a letter from Col. Gabriel MacKenzie to Mrs. Richard M. White dated August 28, 1961 (contained on Col. MacKenzie microfilm), Col. MacKenzie states: "Joseph P. Grant, deceased 1931, said in 1929 when I started the family research that Daniel was buried in the old Catholic Church cemetery in Frostburg, in walking distance of Mt. Savage. I went to Frostburg in 1957 and was told by the priest that the old church with all records had been destroyed or lost; a new church had been erected and the old graveyard had been cleared away for a playground for the church parochial school children. I could learn nothing relative to Daniel?s grave.
