Moses Green McKay b. 1720 d. July 17, 1777 married 1748 Mary Jobe b. 1730
Per the information I have (from internet sources) they did have a child William McKay b. abt 1760 married Jane Lawsher and having at least one child Elizabeth McKay b. 1788 in Virginia she married 1809 to William Andrew Long b. 1785 in Kentucky.
Moses Green McKay and Mary Jobe are my 6th Great Grandparents. I descend through their son Abraham McKay and granddaughter Leah McKay.
Moses Green McKay (son of Robert MacKay and Ann Browne) was born 1720 in Freehold Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey, and died July 17, 1777 in Virginia. He married Mary Jobe 1748 in Fredrick Co, Virginia, daughter of Abraham Job and Sarah Gatchell. She was born 1730 in New Garden, Chester Co., Pennsylvania (now Cecil Co, Maryland)/Cecil Co., MD, and died WFT Est. 1761-1849 in Frederick Co, VA.
Notes for Moses Green McKay:
Most likely Moses was born in Freehold, Monmouth Co. NJ, removed with his father Robert to present day Nottingham Meeting House neighborhood, Cecil Co. MD, removed down into present day Shenandoah/Frederick/Warren counties. His descendants that stayed longer in VA lived in Shenandoah and the part that became Page Co. VA.
Per war record and quaker records. Proof that Moses is the son of Robert is based on Robert McCoy's will. Moses McKay, youngest son of Robert McKay, Sr., was married to Mary Job. According to church records, most of Moses's brother and sisters converted to Baptist, but Moses stayed independent. This interesting story is sited in Quaker records: "1757 Record of Wm. Reckitt at or near Crooked Run: We had a meeting at Crooked Run, 22 miles South of Hopewell on the first day, the 18 da. 12 Mo. It was a good meeting. On the second day we set forward through the woods, and over the hills and rocks, crossing several large creeks. We came in the evening to Moses MacKoy, and had a meeting there next day. They were an unsettled people, yet assented to truth; but were not fully convinced in their minds concerning the sufficiency of it; having an eye to outward shadows. I left them in good will."
Moses served in the Frederick County, Virginia Militia in Captain Henry Speaks' Company during the years of 1756-1760. Moses also served in the Revolutionary War in Captain David Steel's Company, 13th Virginia Regiment, commanded by Colonel William Russell. On July 17, 1777, Moses drowned while serving in the Revolutionary War.
Notes for Mary Jobe:
Mary Jobe's parents were Abraham Job and Sarah Gatchell, the first wife of Abraham Job. It is not possible that this Mary Jobe was the daughter of Abraham Job and Elizabeth McKay, his second wife. This would have made Mary Jobe the blood-related neice of her husband Moses Green McKay. Also, Elizabeth McKay was too young if Mary Jobe was actually born in 1730. Some sources claim that this Mary Jobe was the child of Abraham Job and Elizabeth Whitson. The birthdates do NOT match for her to be their child as some suggest.
There is also a Mary Job that was born February 03, 1695/96 in Delaware County, Maryland and married to a Jonathan White in 1717. Who was a sister to Abraham Job that has been mistaken for this Mary Jobe.
