I located Samuel L. McAmy in WAyne county in the 1830 census. I am virtually certain that this is Samuel McKemie, as his sons marriage licenses are McAmy, then their military records are McKemmie, then it changed to McKemie. He is not in the death records of Franklin county that I can find and I have been to New Union, and if he is there, it is not marked. However, if he moved back to WAyne county, i located an Ellen McKinney died 11-4-1895, Western Garden Hill, wife of Samuel died in Wayne county. Wayne county records burned and there is little before 1886, but there is a census and some land records. I dont think this Ellen and Samuel are my family or are McKemie's.

Samuel is in the 1830 census with 8 people in his house in Wayne county and then in 1840 in Franklin with 10 people. in 1836 there is a land transfer in wayne county from a Sam'l L McKeimaham sp? to an Isaacs selling Isaacs 110 acres adjoining Jeffersonville, which is now the village of GEff. This is 6 months before Samuel shows up in Franklin county making a transfer of property to Serena. In Franklin County, it is spelled McAmy, until after teh civil war.

Samuel's census records say he was born in Tennessee.

If you have any more info about Samuel , his wife, Ellen, Annie, SErena????? I would like to hear.
