Alice was born to William H. McGinnity and Sara Haggard. She is the half sister of my great grandfather William Butler Megenity. She has 3 or 4 siblings (with the same mother) and multiple half siblings (my grandfather's mother was Lydia Meece, for whom my grandmother, Lydia Megenity is named). Literacy was an issue with name spelling so you should look for McGinnity, McGinnitry, and I believe I have narrowed the first McGinnity's to a couple of brothers who are listed in Kentucky in the 1790s Muckintree. If you can link to my tree, it might help you link to some of the records that I have found (Census, etc.). Feel free to contact me via Ancestry.com messages if I can help you.
