My McKay family settled in Cumberland Co., originally near Longstreet Church (now on Ft. Bragg), with some moving into the part of Cumberland Co. which became Harnett. My earliest McKay ancestor in N.C. was Archibald (1720-1797). My line goes back to his son John Sr., then his son James, then Archibald D., then my father George A.McKay(1920-1993) (Johnsonville area). I'm trying to find the final resting places for John Sr. and his wife Chloe Matthews, James and his wife Susan, and Susan's maiden name. I don't know if they were buried in Harnett or Cumberland but James and Susan died after 1855, when Harnett separated from Cumberland. My McKay line is a collateral line to the Lillington McKays; Rev. Neill(buried at Summerville Presbyterian Church) is son of Neil, who was brother of John Sr.
