    Notes 
    • Sponsors of the Children of John M. McKenzie (abt. 1795) Which Circumstantially Suggests that Samuel McKenzie (b. 1751) (?Old Sam?) was John M.?s Father - by Michael A. McKenzie May, 2014

      1.Before we begin with the sponsors of John M.?s children, note that John M. named his second child Samuel. May be a clue.
      2.May, 1819, Samuel McKenzie, sponsors: Samuel Mckenzie and Hanna Logston. Is this Samuel (1850, ?Old Sam?, John?s father and this boy?s grandfather?
      3.June, 1821, Harriett McKenzie, sponsors: Moses and Catherine McKenzie. I think this was Moses Ignatius McKenzie and his wife, Catherine. Moses Ignatius was a known child of Samuel and would have been John M.?s oldest brother.
      4.September, 1823, John M. McKenzie, Jr., sponsor: Helen McKensey. Query: is this a misspelling of ?Ellen?? If so, this may be John M.?s sister, Eleanor (Ellen_ and one of Samuel McKenzie?s (1751) daughters. The fact that there is only one sponsor reinforces that Helen/Ellen was not married and coincides with the information I recently sent you with respect to Samuel F. McKenzie (b. 1805).
      5.September, 1840, Peter McKenzie, sponsors: May and Basil McKenzie. The only Basil of which I am aware was the son of Moses Ignatius McKenzie referenced above. Basil would have been John M.?s nephew, and the grandson of Samuel McKenzie (1751).
      6.May, 1844, Francis McKinzie, sponsors being Sam?l F. McKinzie and Reb. Garlitz. This could be one of two people: Samuel F. McKenzie (abt. 1791), who was John M.?s brother or Samuel F. McKenzie (1805), who I have proposed was the son of Ellen McKenzie of Samuel (1751).

      Conclusion
      These are the recorded baptisms of John M.?s children in which I can identify the sponsors. In every one that I can identity, there is some connection to Samuel McKenzie (1751). Ergo, I conclude that Samuel McKenzie (1750) was the father of John M. McKenzie (ab.t. 1795).

    Map of Greenville Township, Pennsylvania 1876
    Map of Greenville Township, where John M. McKenzie (b. abt. 1795) settled. Follow Flaugherty Creek (right hand side) and you'll see several McKenzies listed. Interestingly, there is no road shown along this creek on the map. Today Mckenzie Hollow Road basically follows the creek, so apparently that is how it got its name. The initials F. and P. are legible and I think the middle one is A, as in Ambrose. John and his second wife, Barbara Engle, had two sons, Francis, and Patrick Henry. These may very well be the names shown on the map. Michael McKenzie, Mt. Savage, Md. January, 2011.
