officer, who for four long years faithfully .joined heart
and hand with those who fought beneath the stars
and stripes. Those under him in rank, respected and
loved him, and regarded his counsel and authority
with universal favor. In the discharge of duty he
never faltered. His character scorned the ignoble,
and in his intelligent, dignified intercourse with man-
kind he maintained an influence, which was felt even
after his death. He was one of whom not a word
but that of praise was uttered, and his useful life was
worthy of the many fitting and beautiful epitaphs
published after his decease. He was a member of
Ransom post. No. 131, G. A. R., Dept. of Missouri. In
politics he was a Republican. After his marriage
and at the close of the war, he and his family resided
at Peoria until September, 1881, when they removed
to St. Louis, where General Grier was engaged In the
grain commission business, and where his widow Btill
resides. Since their residence has been in St. Louis
they have been members of the Washington and
Compton Avenue Presbyterian church. General Grier
is 'buried at Peoria, 111. To General David Perkins

CHAPTER VII.
AGNES McKINNEY AND HER DESCENDANTS.

d Agnes McKinney, seventh child and second daughter
of Joseph MacKenzie, was born near Newburg, Hopewell
township, Cumberland Co., Penna., died April 9, 1783.
About 1765 she married William McCord, who died Sep-
tember 9, 1806, son of John McCord, who was one of the ^
earliest settlers of central Penna.

"As early as 1750 the names of John, David and Wil-^,i^-^
Ham McCord appear on the tax lists of Derry and Hanover
townships, Penna. In 1756 the McCord Fort stood in the
settlement of Conococheague. In the' same year it was
burned by the Indians, and twenty-seven persons were
either killed or carried into captivity. No authentic record
of the family exists beyond their settlement in Sherman's
Valley now Perry Co., Penna., when they built their
house prior to the Indian War of 175 5- 1763. It was stand-
ing a few years ago, and bore in it the marks of bullets fired
by the enemies of the white man."

In this valley dwelt the families of Robinson, Black,
Moorhead, Fisher, Crawford and McCord who intermar-
ried at an early period. Their farms were located on the
west side of the Susquehanna river, along the Swatara and
Manada creeks. The most desperate Indian outrages were
perpetrated and at one time the valley was almost deserted
by the settlers. After the French and Indian War, the
savages moved on, and gradually the old Scotch-Irish fami-
lies returned. Some of their cabin homes were not de-
stroyed, but the majority were in ashes. That of the
McCords escaped the fire and hatchet of the redskin.

"In the burial grounds of Derry, Hanover, and other of



86

the Presbyterian churches of central Pennsylvania, lie the
remains of many who bear the name, and who are doubtless
descendants of the original families that here settled, and
who were closely connected by ties of blood."
-— William and Agnes McKinney McCord spent their mar-
ried life in Sherman's Valley. He was thrice married. The
race of McCord was strong, active in all the prominent pur-
suits of life, ardent in filial devotion, and earnest in the
furtherance of christian living, intermingled with the
McKinney blood, gave to their descendants traits of char-
acter pure and ennobling.

II. Joseph McCord^ (Agnes McKinney McCord^, Joseph
MacKenzie^) was born January g, 1766, in Sherman's Val-
ley, now Perry Co., Penna., died February 7, 1813, at North
East, Erie Co., Penna. ; married Elizabeth McCord.

In the spring of 1797 Joseph McCord and his broth-in-
law Thomas Robinson, followed the tide of immigration to-
the borders of the great lakes, with a view of forming a
permanent settlement. A few settlers had been there for
some years, but it was a wild country, forming a part of
Allegheny county, not then organized into Erie county.



87

Through the summer of 1797 they located their claims and
built their log cabins. The following spring they brought
their families from Cumberland Co., Penna., to their
new homes, a distance of three or four hundred miles, trav-
eling on horseback, the children borne in the arms of their
parents. Their goods were shipped by boat, up the Alle-
gheny to French creek, then to Le Boeuf, now Waterford,
from which they were sent by wagons to their destination.
Joseph McCord with Elizabeth his wife, and two children,
Eliza and William, with others of their kindred, soon made
their cabin homes ring with joyous contentment, and con-
verted the uncultivated waste into a garden of beauty. Erie
county has been the place of residence of his descendants
for more than a century, some of whom reside on the shore
of the lake. He was a man of strict integrity, great in ex-
cellence of thought and action, of refined manner and
speech. He was eminent for piety, and with his brother
John and brother-in-law Thomas Robinson, was one of the
first elders of the Presbyterian church of North East, which
was organized in 1801. They were ordained to their office
in a grove on the banks of Sixteen Mile creek. The public
road from east to west through the township, now known
as the Lake Shore road, runs by the farms and homes of
the sons of Joseph McCord.

North East, Erie Co., Penna.; married April 9, 1795,
Polly Harkness, born January 24, 1772, died July 9, 1852,
at North East.

In the year 1800 he took his wife and two oldest children



S8

over the mountains on horseback, to the shore of Lake Erie,
where his brother and sister had hved for two years. The
country was beautiful but wild. He erected his log cabin .
with its outlook towards the lake. Although primitive in
style, it was the abode of peace and prosperity, and was
later replaced by a commodious dwelling house. He was a
farmer and had a tanning and shoe establishment on his
farm. He traded with Pittsburg, and boats on their routes
to Buffalo and Niagara Falls, were filled with produce to
be exchanged for flour, coffee and tea. He was postmaster
at North East, and one of the first elders of the Presbyterian
church, organized one year after the date of his settlement
in Erie county, and services were held in his tan house.
His character was exemplary, and he was esteemed as one
of the most consistent of men. His wife had a great degree
of mental strength, and earnestness of purpose. At one
time she nursed two of her children throug^h scourges of
smallpox, at a pest h5use. On another occasion she stopped
the jockeys from racing on the Sabbath day, on the road
leading through their farm, by standing in the middle of
the track and impeding their progress. She often rode on
horseback, eleven miles to church, taking two or three chil-
dren with her on the saddle. She was hospitable and ably
assisted her husband in every pursuit of life. They are bur-
ied at North East.

89

beside her husband in the g-raveyard adjoining the Cen-
tre Presbyterian church, that county, of which they were
members. They were consistent, stalwart, intelhgent peo-
ple, noted for their strict integrity and uprightness of pur-
pose and action. The times were those in which men and
women were in positions of peril, when the strongest charac-
ters were put to the most severe tests, and in the blood
which ran in the veins of the McCord-Blaine ancestry, was
not a drop that was not full of courage, unflinching loyalty
to home and country, and reliance upon the guidance and
protection of divine providence.

They lived in a manner that commanded the utmost ven-
eration. Without the conveniences of modern life, but with
all the comforts necessary to their welfare, they kept in
touch with the outside world, taught their children to be
honest, honorable and just, laid before them the Bible and
catechism, and gave them the best educational advantages
that could be obtained, and amidst discouragements
their descendants would consider unsurmountable, they
achieved a vast degree of knowledge. Only three daugh-
ters in the family lived to reach years of womanhood and
married. Those who died early in life are buried beside
their parents at Centre Church,

Robinson, born 1773 in Sherman's Valley, died July 12,

1830, at North East, Penna. Philip Robinson, with his
sons Samuel and George settled at Manada Gap, a pass in
the Kittatinny mountain, sixteen miles from Harrisburg,
in a northeasterly direction. About 1753 George crossed
the Susquehanna river, and erected his home in Sherman's
Valley, on the west side of the mountain. It was necessary
in those perilous times to have convenient places of refuge
from the Indians, and forts were built on both the farms
of Philip and his son George. At Manada Gap, the fort is
often mentioned as Philip Robinson's, and some times
Samuel Robinson's. In 1756 the Indian outbreaks in the
valley became so desperate, that at one time, "the whole of
the inhabitants were gathered at a fort at George Robin-
son's, excepting one family." Their distress and danger
became so appalling, that they came into the Cumberland
Valley until the enemy deserted that section of country and
went further west. Many of the settlers did not recross the
mountain, but found greater comfort among the older set-
tlements. The Robinson's returned to their former homes.
George Robinson, son of Philip, had ten children, Mary,
John, Margaret, Jonathan, Agnes, Sarah, Esther, Martha,
George, and Thomas who married Mary McCord. In 1797,
he left his wife in Cumberland county and went with his
brother-in-law Joseph McCord to the shore of Lake Erie,
where in Erie county, then a part of Allegheny county, he
decided to locate a claim, and build a cabin for his family.
In the autumn they returned, threading their way through
the forest, and in the spring of 1798, each took his wife and
two children, also James McMann, his wife and one child,
to the beautiful region of the lake shore. Between three
and four hundred miles they traversed the wilderness on
horseback, and found their cabins as they left them six
months before. The country soon filled with populace, and
as soon as possible a church was established at North East,
with Thomas Robinson a ruling elder. His wife was a
generous, loving, unselfish character.

ander T. Blaine, born 1776, died February 18, 181 7, at
North East, Penna.

In 1800 he took his wife and oldest child to Erie
county and settled near the shore of the lake, where his de-
scendants lived for many years. He was a nephew of Col-
onel Ephraim Blaine, who valiantly served his country dur-
ing the Revolutionary War. He entered the service as a
colonel, belonging to the Pennsylvania line. He was with
Washington at Valley Forge, and aided greatly in relieving
the distress of the soldiers. Their friendship was warm and
lasting, and they were together during many of the most
trying scenes of the strife. In 1778 he was appointed to the
post of "commissary general of the Northern Department."
His district extended from Maryland northward, including
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England,
and in this capacity he won meritorious distincton. After
the close of the war, he retired to his estate at Middlesex,
Cumberland Co., Penna., where in 1794 he entertained
Washington and his suite, wherj they were called to the in-
terior of the state on matters pertaining to the Whisky In-
surrection. He was one of the original members of the
Pennsylvania Society of the Cincinnati. He married first
Rebecca Galbraith, and secondly Mrs. Duncan, widow of
Judge Duncan of Carlisle, Penna. He was a hero of the
Revolution, and died in 1808. His descendants are distin-
guished in all the prominent walks of life. The father of

Ephraim Blaine, and had three children, Isabella, Alexander

their children with them on horseback. Their son James took
up a large tract of land on the lake shore, and lived on it
during his lifetime. Around him were families of the
same name, and friends who assisted in clearing the wilder-
ness and building his house. He was patriotic, and served
as colonel in the War of 1812. He instilled the same spirit
in the hearts of his children, and taught them lessons of
loyalty anr! devotion tc home and country. With his wife,
he was given to hospitality, and their home was the center
of the warmest cordiality and most lx)unteous entertain-
ment, where guests were made abundantly welcome and
left his fireside feeling it was good to have been there.
They were earnest in all the pursuits of life, and left a
legacy oi helpful memories to those about them. They
were members of the Presbyterian church, and are buried
at North East, beside scores of their kindred. Their chil-
dren were all bom near North East, but removed to different
parts of the country after marriage, and became prominent
and influential.
