From: "The Kendall Family History" By Denise Kelley Mortorff, Ellen Kendall Kelley,

Elma Jane Richardson Scott; Privately printed, c 1989

"William Kendall and Jemima Kirk were married and raised their family at Stafford

County. It was a period of growth in the county. Most of the inhabitants were farmers,

although there were also a few merchants and an ironworks. Farm land was used

primarily for the raising of tobacco and other agricultural uses. Nearby Falmouth was a

thriving center of trade and other business activity since it was a port of call. Stafford

also served as a direct point of access for ships from England and other places to

Virginia.

"Many settlers were drawn to Stafford simply because of its accessibility to water. It

wasn't long however before it was clear that Stafford could only provide so much land

for so many farmers. Average farm acreage ranged from 100 to 500 acres. The

number of inhabitants in the 1760's was a few thousand.75 Since most immigrants and

residents wanted farmland for their livelihood, the lack of land in Stafford caused

settlers to look westward. Some land in Stafford was also found to be unusable since

tobacco, a principal crop, had depleted the soil as an agricultural resource. Many

descendants of early Stafford families left by 1840 as the Rappahannock River became

mud-filled, rendering it unnavigable for ships. Fredericksburg, a short distance away

and across the river, replaced Falmouth as the center of trade and business declined

greatly in Stafford.

"It appears William was a farmer. He may be listed on a Stafford quit-rent roll for the

years of 1758 and 1760.76 His son Jeremiah states in the fall of l775, "I was then

living with my father who resided near the upper end of Stafford and within a few

miles of said Capt. [William] Washington."

"This Kendall generation stayed in the vicinity of Stafford until after the Revolutionary

War. There is evidence that some sons served in the War. Jeremiah, William and

Reubin each served. Almost all of the children of William and Jemima can be

accounted for to some extent. Four children are believed to have gone to Kentucky - -

Thomas, John, William and Reubin; Samuel went to West Virginia.; Jeremiah relocated

to Pennsylvania. Four may have remained in Virginia, --George in Fauquier County,;

Ann, Lizy and Jesse in Stafford County; Mary Ann's whereabouts are unknown. William

and Jemima are likely buried on what was once their land at Stafford County, Virginia.

 

From: "The Kendall Family History" By Denise Kelley Mortorff, Ellen Kendall Kelley,

Elma Jane Richardson Scott; Privately printed, c 1989:

"The Revoltionary War Pension of son Jeremiah Kendall states he received a letter in

May, 1778, annoucing that his father passed away at his home at Cannon's Run. This

may be the burial place for William and Elizabeth Combs, also. Cannon's Run, a

watercourse that passes through Stafford County is used to identify the area."

From History of Ritchie County:

(Origin of the ancestors of those who settled in Ritchie County, West Virginia)

"This couple (William and Jemima) were the parents of ten children: Jesse, Thomas,

George, Anne, John, William, Samuel, Mary Anne, Elizabeth, and Jeremiah. And one of

these sons, which one cannot be determined, crossed the mountains from the "Old

Dominion" and settled in Marion county [see above, Samuel], not far from the time of

the birth of his youngest son, James Kendall, in 1784. His family consisted of six other

sons, besided James, who scattered to Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky (with perhaps an

exception or two), but James remained at the old homestead in Marion county, where

he died in 1868, and where he lies buried.

"Family of William, junior and Jemima Kirk Kendall:

1- Jesse Kendall born October 4, 1740

2- Thomas Kendall born May 27, 1742

"Jeremiah Kendall, the younger son of William, junior, and Jemima Kirk,served as a

member of the Continental forces for five years during the American Revolution, and

was with General Anthony Wayne in his campaign against the Indians for two years,

being at the battle of Maumee, and at the treaty of Greenville. He carried to his grave

nine scars from musket-ball wounds which he sustained in battle. After the Revolution,

he sold his interests in Virginia; and with his wife and two children and their sole

belongings, emigrated to Pennsylvania on horseback, and settled on the old "National

Road" in Fayette county, between Brownsville and Uniontown, where he died in 1843,

"He was the father of the late General William Kendall of Ohio, who served under

General Harrison at Tippecanoe, and was a soldier of the war of 1812; was the grand-

 

uncle of Ransom Kendall; and Ransom's only brother was named for him.

"The family are in some way related to General Wayne and Jeremiah Kendall fell heir

to the spurs, watch-chain and boot-hooks fo this distinguished warrior, who is better

known as "Mad Anthony", and these invaluable relics are still cherished in his family,

they having been handed down from father to eldest son for five generations..."

Clark County, Indiana Biographies, Biography provided by Volunteer Lois Mauk, Source

of Biography: Baird's History of Clark County,1909, pages 545-546

"The name of McKinley has of late years assumed something of a historic significance

in this land of ours for it is linked in the public memory with the remembrance of a

martyred President. It is but fitting that this should be so. And yet the family name and

traditions go back beyond that towering figure of recent years, across the Atlantic and

across the centuries, to find an ancestor of distinction and merit.

"The first to emerge out of the twilight of tradition with a definite record is the figure

of a Scotch Covenanter, who, when the vicissitudes of the times made it necessary for

him, went from his native land across to Ireland; thence in after years to the United

States. Two of his sons, David and James McKinley, settled in Shelby County, Kentucky,

and came in after years to the spot in Clark County, Indiana, where Borden now

stands.

"David shortly after went northward to South Bend, and thence to Canton, Ohio, while

James remained and made Wood Township his future home. David McKinley, as may

be surmised, was the great-grandfather of President McKinley. James McKinley reared

six sons: James, John, Thomas, William, Jeremiah and Alexander. ..."

 

From the book, The McKinley Clan, 1763-1999, Compiled by the Borden Historical

Society, Section I and From the book, The Bells of Pleasant Ridge 1760 - 2000, by Paul

& Pat Coffman, page 15:

 

"History of the McKinley's, By Malinda (McKinley) Kelly, As Given to her granddaughter

 

Bertha (Kelly) McKinley:

"James McKinley I and William McKinley, brothers, of Scotch-Irish decent, came from

Omagh, in County Tyrone. Ulster Ireland, as British soldiers to fight in the American

Revolution. They came down to Valley Forge, and when they saw the American

soldiers fighting, barefooted and ragged, they decided the American cause must be

right or they couldn't fight so bravely that way. They secretly made it up, among

themselves, to flee the British and go over to the Americans.

"When they were sent to the spring to get water, they filled their buckets and set them

down, and fled toward the American camp, with their hands up, and gave themselves

over to fight for the American cause. When the war was over, they came through

Valley Forge, James I went to Kentucky and we think William went into Ohio and was

the ancestor of President William McKinley. Ten of our presidents' ancestors came from

Omagh, Ireland.

"James McKinley met Jemima Kendall in Kentucky, and they were married in Jefferson

County Kentucky on January 18, 1789. In the early eighteen hundreds, they came

from Kentucky to Indiana and settled on the knob's south of Borden called Pleasant

Ridge. There they lived until their death, and are buried in the Old McKinley-Packwood

cemetery at the top of Pleasant Ridge Knob.

James McKinley I was killed by a fall from a spirited horse. His head struck a white oak

root, breaking his neck, in 1830. The children of James McKinley I and Jemina (Kendall)

McKinley were; John, Thomas, Nancy, lsabell, James II, Elizabeth, Jeremiah,

Alexander, Jemima, William, Mary and two infants that died. ..."

 

Four of James and Jemima's children married into the Packwood family: Isabell,

James II, Jeremiah, and Alexander.

"McKinley Ancestors, Compiled by Cecil E. Tharp, A McKinley Family History, Early

Ancestry

"The early ancestors of the McKinleys were Scottish Highlanders, a race of men

distinguished for the strength with which they fought and over come the hardships of

their surroundings. Bred in the fastness of the Caledonian Mountains, where Nature

offered little chance to earn a living and few of the comforts of life, these people,

struggled bravely to maintain their homes. They defended with fierce resistance their

property and possessions against encroachments of the greedy barons of the Lowland.

These Highlanders became famous, not only as fighting men, but as patriots, ready to

lay down their lives at a moment's notice to defend their homes, their families, and

their native land.

"When the descendants of these people emigrated to America, as many of them did,

they did not escape the hardships of life. Conditions were different, but the battle for

existence continued. When the Revolutionary began, these Highlander descendants

again showed their inbred patriotism in support of independence from England. ..."

If we do share the same ancestry as William McKinley, II, 25th President of the United

States, some reports have traced this line back to Duncan MacDuff, Thane of Fife, who

reportedly slew MacBeth. These reports are located at (copy and paste the web

"Mr. Kendall was born in Marion county, on March 28, 1816; and there,

on August 27, 1838, he was married to Miss Lydia Rex, daughter of Eli

and Sarah Hall Rex, who was born in Pennsylvania, on August 25, 1820,

child of two summers.

"He and his wife were both loyal members of the Methodist Episcopal

church for almost a half-century - were pillars in the church at

Chevauxdefrise from the time of its institution until the close of their

lives. They gave the grounds for the church and cemetery and were

important factors in the erection of the first church, near 1867. And

their son, John, who died in childhood, filled the first grave that was

History of Ritchie County:

"Mrs. Kendall died on September 25, 1888. Her last moments were full

of triumph, her last words were an expression of praise. Well does the

writer remember that impressive hour, as one by one she bade us adieu,

and admonished us to meet her beyond the "Gate Beutiful", which she

was just then entering. On the old homestead, beside her husband, she

is sleeping. The children of this household were fourteen in number,

seven boys and seven girls."
