The John McKinley-Jemima [Jamina} Kendall line is part of family VIII of the "second gathering". See page 1 of John McKinley's McKinley Newsletter, volume 6/1 [Feb 1998] or page 33, vol 5/3.
NOT part of the Presidential line.

Thank you for replying to my query.

Hi my great grandmother Augusta McKinley b. 1850 supposedly in Indiana, was also, accord. to my mom. supposed to be related to President McKinley;.However I have not been able to even find out who her parents were, let alone any connection to Pres. McKinley. Am asking if you have ever seen an Augusta McKinley in your databases or family trees. I do know that she m. my great grandfather Andrew James Everman in 1867, 5/9, in Fulton County Illinois, and that later they were in Clark county missouri according to 1880 Missouri census. She was barely 17 when she married Andrew James Everman, or James Andrew Everman, he went by James Andrew Everman as an adult altho was born as Andrew James Everman in 1847 Clark co. INdian. Have you ever heard of any of these people?

According to John McKinley, who has published the McKinley Newsletter
from 1993 to late 2001 in 9 volumes of four issues each, he has ceased
publication.
I happen to have all the issues.
One of the recurring issues has been debunking the claims of
relationship to the President, William McKinley. I began genealogy to
find the exact relationship claimed by my aunt, a newspaper columnist,
and found that we were of an entirely different family.

"The Second Gathering of the Clan McKinley at Detroit, Michigan U.S.A.
September 10, 1894" lists "known" [to the gatherers, at least] families
in the U.S. under the heading Genealogy on page 8.
I have a copy of this as well, and the entry for family VIII reads
merely:
I Thomas
II William
III Jeremiah
IV James born 1790 - James McKinley born in 1790 died in Clark County
Indiana c. 1885
I John
II Samuel
III Alexander
IV William
V daughter

However, various correspondents with the Newsletter have expanded this
as the children of James McKinley 1767-1848 and Jemima Kendall 1770-1826
and lists a number of researchers, many of whom should be in contact
with the McKinley list.


I still no apparent connection with the Pres.
