Charlotte, thanks for responding. Concerning Thomas Baker, I wonder if you have seen the story that he was killed in Culpeper Co., VA while making gunpowder during the Rev. War. I have seen this over and over in books and in researchers' personal family group sheets, etc. However, I have never been able to find any legal documentation, i.e. Revolutionary records, etc. Did he have a will that you know of? I would love to know more about Thomas and Dorothy if you have more info. If you wish, you may write to my Email address:

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Addendum: I don't suppose you would be connected to the McKinneys of Pendleton Dist., SC ca 1820 give or take a few years. I am especially referring to Col. Jesse McKinney. He was the unmarried father of America Knox, dau of Sarah Ann Knox (who later married Samuel DeArman). Sarah Ann was b in Spartanburg, SC 1810 and Col. Jesse McKinney may have also been there at that time. He died young after leaving SC. I know that would be a far reach and big coincidence, thought I would ask anyway.
