      Sorry, I wasn't clearer on the Joseph McKenzie early history.

      Margaret Klingaman's family belonged to the Dunkard religion. (Church of the
      Brethern?)
      "A few months before the thirteenth child, Clara, was born, the mother.. was
      baptized in St. Michael's Church, Frostburg, MD. The father had been not too
      zealous about attending mass and when a mission came to this church, Mrs.
      McKenzie urged her husband to attend and to take her with him. She had read
      much that had been written against the Catholic Church by the 'Know Nothing'
      party, active at the time, and wanted to learn the truth. At the close of
      the mission she was baptized along with all the children under twelve. Those
      older took instructions in the Faith; all eventually became Catholics."

      My aunts, who wrote the above bio of their grandparents did not have access
      to records as we do. Following is what I now have found of the baptisms:
      Apparently some of the other children were baptized before Margaret at a
      mission at St. John's in New Baltimore in 1851. "The church at Fairfield" is
      the church in Meyersdale, PA. I did not find references for the baptisms of
      Harriet and Cyrus. The reference on Harriet is from her obituary. The
      reference on Cyrus I found attached to a photo of him. His only son died
      without children.

      Joseph McKenzie (born June 17, 1816, died January 23, 1879, m. Margaret Ann
      Klingaman)
      . Harriet McKenzie (born July 9, 1840, died Nov. 30, 1910, m. John Blake
      "Mrs. Harriet L. Blake, aged 70, after a good and holy life, died at her
      home, near Meyersdale, Pa., on November 30, 1910. She was born in Somerset
      County, Pa and in her younger days did not profess any faith in particular
      but was baptized at about the age of 18 years. She was later confirmed by
      Cardinal Gibbons, then Bishop, at Frostburg, Md. Since that time, she has
      never wavered from the faith she selected to guide her through her life and
      died with it growing stronger as life slipped on toward eternity. "

      . Cyrus McKenzie (born Nov. 23, 1841, died Feb. 15, 1869, m. Kate Loeschel)
      was baptized and received Extreme Unction on his death bed.

      Their daughter, Bernadine (1903-1909), who you mentioned, died of diptheria.
      "Bernardine Anna Breig died at her home 224 Colombia Ave. Vandergrift, PA
      January 25 at 1:15 p.m. Her death was caused by heart failure following
      diptheria. Bernardine was an exceptionally bright and loving child, a
      comfort and life of her home and a favorite among her companions. She was
      aged six years and was a member of St. Gertrude's Sunday School. Angels High
      Mass Sunday morning February 7 at 9 o"clock at St. Gertrude's Church. "

      Now that I look at the 'original' records (from 1944), my grandmother,
      Clara, really doesn't mention her grandfather. My aunt, Regina knew that her
      great-grandfather was John and that he had been married twice. Joseph
      McKenzie is buried at St. Michael's in Frostburg. Apparently a cousin gave
      permission for his body to be moved when the school was built.
      I do have the records of a Moses McKenzie, a drummer boy from the
      Revolutionary War. I have no idea which Moses this was.

      This is WAY more information than you need. You know, it could be that John
      M. McKenzie's father was from Scotland or Ireland. Who knows?

      Did I tell you that I do have the Hochstetler book, in case you need a
      lookup in it?

    This document is an Excel spreadsheet compiled by Michael A. McKenzie, the author and webmaster. The information was drawn from the 1880 Federal Census for Allegany County, Maryland. He attempted to take every McKenzie (and spelling variation thereof) and tie that person back to the original ancestor of all McKenzies of Early Maryland, John McKenzie (b. 1687). Other than a few instances, he was able to make the connection for every McKenzie living in Allegany County in 1880.
