475.— William P. Kyle (5), son of Jane McNary and Thomas Kyle, bom in 1S3G
in the homestead near Cadiz. Ohio, continued at home with his father on the
farm until the breaking out of the Civil War in 1861, when ho volunteered for the
defense of his country in the Forty-third Ohio Infantry. Mr. Kyle was one of the
fortunate men in the army, serving nearly four full years in the Army of the
West or Cumberland, and during that time never failed to accompany his regiment
on a march, was in every engagement in which his regiment took part, never sick
enough to be in a hospital, never a prisoner, and never wounded. The regiment
never failed to hold their ground and rout the enemy from their front. For three
days in May, 1S62, at Corinth they were in line of battle continuously. In October
of the same year, a second battle was fought at Corinth, in which they hail an
active part. During their campaign in Tennessee they suffered much for clothing
and military equipments. The Forty-third Ohio Infantry was among those who
accompanied General Sherman in his march from Atlanta to Savannah, during the

it is looked back to with gratification, seeing the great results it brought about.

THE DAVID BRANCH OF THE McNARY FAMILY
By J. R. McNary, Corresponding Secretary McNary Association, Burgettstown, Pa.*



THE EMIGRATION OF DAVID McNARY TO THE LAND OF PROMISE.

"For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a gooil land."
1. — James McNary (1) (see at beginning of John Branch).

2. — David McNary (,2). of Chanceford Township, York County, Pennsylvania,
bought a farm in Hanover Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania in A. D.
1783 for "75 pounds lawful money of Pennsylvania." The deed for this land is
recorded in Washington County, Pennsylvania, although there is some doubt whether
his residence was not over the State line, in Brooke County, West Virginia. Born
in A. D. 1757, three years prior to his father — James MeXary, the original ancestor —
locating upon the "MeXary" homestead in Chaneeford Township, York County.
Pennsylvania, it is quite probable that David, the fourth and youngest son, was bora
in America. In person, David was a large man and of a "sandy" complexion. His
wife's maiden name was Esther Cowden — no doubt a sister, or near relative, of the
ancestor of the Cowden family, who located upon a part of -the "George Washingtcn
tract," in Mt. rieasant Township, Washington County, at an early day. David Me-
Xary died A. D. 1 S 1 7 . His will is on record at Washington, Pennsylvania. His
son William and John Cowden — no doubt a brother-iu-law — are named executors; and
of his estate he bequeaths the one-eighth each to his wife, Esther, and to William,
Margaret, wife of John Ramsey; Sarah, Mary, wife of Samuel Martin; Elizabeth,
Esther and Jane, his seven children. Some doubt exists as to the place of burial of
David, and of his venerable father, James — the "original ancestor." William Me-
Xary, the only son of David, together with his immediate descendants, are interred
in the old graveyard at or near Paris, Washington County, Pennsylvania; but the
final resting place of the "pioneer" David anil of his aged father is not certainly
or definitely located — the imperfect markings of all graves of that early date being



*There being no descendant of David MeXary known to the' publication com-
mittee to whom to apply for a compilation and history of the descendants of David,
the youngest of the MeXary quartet, the writer reluctantly accepted the task, and
herewith presents as full and complete a record of this branch, as now seems pos-
sible, from the meager data available, after the lapse of a century from the days
of the "pioneer" David: For the inaccuracies and imperfections. — either of omis-
sion or commission, — in the performance of his labor, the writer begs of the read'-r
his kind indulgence. J. R. M.

now illegible. While it is possible that their remains are interred in the old Paris,
or Harmon 's Creek, Cemetery, where many of the succeediag generations lie, yet
it is quite probable that the remains of "Old James,' - of his pioneer sun David, and
of David's wife— Esther Cowden— are at rest in the ancient cemetery, or burying
place, of the old Seceder Congregation, known as "The Tent," in pioneer days-
located some five miles south or southwest of Paris, Pennsylvania, but within the
West Virginia border— which seems to have been the earliest burial place established
in the Holliday's Cove region. David McNary was an elder in the old Dr. Anderson's
Harmon's Creek congregation, under whose teachings hi* family were reared, and
the principles, or doctrines of Calvanism instilled, which left its impress upon the
succeeding generations and lent to the pioneer settlers of Western Pennsylvania a
reputation for moral and religious probity second to no other region of our countrv.

At the date of the location and settlement of David McXary upon the waters
of Harmon's Creek in 17S3, the condition of all the region westward of the Monon-
gahela Kiver was most serious; Indian raids, or incursions of the savage tribes
from west of the Ohio River upon the unprotected settlers were frequent, and a con-
tinuous menace to the pioneers of the northwestern portions of Washington County —
being on the extreme boundary of the advance line of civilization! For some tune
prior to this date, an "outpost," or "military station," had been maintained at
Holliday's Cove, on Harmon's Creek, near the outlet to the Ohio, and garrisoned
by a detachment of Colonial "militia," or "minute" men, whose duty it was to
look after the safety of the early settlers. The earlier settlements were alwavs
made under the protection and in the vicinity of these frontier "outposts;" hence
it was that frequent settlements, including but a few families, in exposed localities,
were made miles in advance, leaving' much of the wilderness to the rear, unclaimed
and unoccupied. In A. D. 17S3 large tracts of Washington and Beaver Counties
were yet unsettled, unsurveyed and unclaimed under the patent laws of the State;
and all of the country to the west and north of the Ohio River, was yet an unbroken
