About McKimmy's of Michigan & W. V
The McKimmy Family

Starts with James & Jean (Fraser) McKimmy of: Rathen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland 
who had at least 7 children. Believe we descend from their son James McKimmy 
born about 1743? McKimmy`s can trace their Ancestry so-far! Back to a James & 
Mary Elizabeth (Wilt) McKimmy (Granddaughter of: Michael & Susanna ? Wilt) of: 
Preston County, WV. They had (14) children. James died December 13, 1871 in 
Alleghany County Maryland. James and Mary are belived to be buried in the Old 
Maple Springs cemetery, Tucker County, West Virginia. But, (we) don`t 
have any photo`s proving this! Most of James & Mary children migrated to 
parts of Ohio then, Michigan. {Around Lenawee & Gladwin Counties}. Note: 
Surname seems to have been Mispelled/Recorded from: McKinny>McKinney>McKimmey 
according to Census and other Documents. Though: I have a Sworn Statement by: 
`Benjamin Franklin McKimmy` on behalf of: Francis M. McKimmy`s Wife Ann(a) 
Elizabeth Wolfe. Showing, Benjamin stating: The correct spelling of the 
Surname 
is: McKimmy not McKinney etc. Source: Civil War Pension file for Francis 
McKimmy/Francis McKinney. One filed for Ohio and the other for Michigan. 

Francis M. McKimmy, Civil War Pension file. Explains some of the confusion 
with 
the McKimmy Surname. Francis Civil War enlistment papers were typed up wrong 
with the Surname as: `McKinny` which, he signed in error! He often had {health 
problems} such as: `Blindness` etc. & was treated as: `Francis McKinney` while 
in military service. He would often sign his name anyway imaginable: Despite, 
attempts by his brother`s {Rev. Perry McKimmy & Benjamin Franklin McKimmy}  
{Sworn Statement`s} before Washington, D.C. The spelling of the Surname was 
never corrected to this day. Last, I wish to express (my) Thank`s to all! 
Who have contributed to this Website. Thank You!
