GENEALOGY OF THE THOMAS M'NAKY BEANCH.

In taking up this part of the genealogical history,— the Thomas McXary
Branch,— we have experienced much difficulty in obtaining accurate and reliable
dates of some of our early ancestry, but on the whole, we feel the record
can be relied "upon as correct.

2. Thomas McNary (2), son of James, the Scottish pioneer, was born on bia

father's farm in Chanceford Township. York County. Pennsylvania. The date of
his birth, we cannot be absolutely certain of, but believe it to have been about 1744.
He was married in 1766 to Jennet Robinson in York County, who was born in 1747.
We find, by consulting "Spangler's History and Sketches of York County Familes,"
that Thomas McXary was a volunteer in the Revolutionary War. and captain of
the Fourth Company of the Fourth Battalion of the "Flying Camp"' in 1776, which
inarched to New Jersey and took part in the Battle of Trenton. Also that one David
McXary, brother of Thomas, was a private in this same company commanded by
Captain Thomas McXary. It may be a matter of interest to know that David Mc-
Kinlev, grandfather of President William McKinley. was a member of this battalion.

In December, 17S2. this same Thomas McXary. following the line of emigra-
tion westward, purchased a farm in what is now Xorth Strabane Township, Wash-
ington County. Pennsylvania, of James Allison.— 250 acres of land for -'375 pounds
specie, lawful money of Pennsylvania.'' situated on the forks of Shirtee Creek on
Sugar Tree Run. bounded by lands of Dorce Penticost, and to a line of said tract
run by Henry Taler (Henry Taylor) and lands of John McDall (McDowel). For
