Per the book "The McKinney Family" by Mildred McKinney Kee, Mary "Polly" McKinney (b.4/2/1788) was a daughter of William McKinney (05/06/1766 -10/31/1857) and his wife Amy Willis McKinney (06/21/1764 - before 1850). Polly married Robert Jones (b.02/25/1790) in 1807 in Rutherford Co, NC.
Ms. Kee also tells us William McKinney was a son Daniel McKinney (AKA Donald McInnish, Jr) b.09/15/1742 and died c 1835, and his wife Sarah Weathers McKinney.
She indicates William was born in Sussex Co, VA, and Amy was born in Franklin Co, NC. Although she gives no location for William & Amy's 08/17/1783 marriage, she lists the first three of their eight children as having been born in Franklin Co, NC.
She only lists two siblings for William, Seth & Rebecca. Seth (b.1780) married Jane Merchant & died in 1865 in Grainger, TN. Rebecca (no birthdate given) married George Julian in Mecklenburg Co, NC, 04/09/1791. As these three children were born so far apart, I'm sure there are probably other siblings.
Don't know where Ms Kee's book can be purchased. The copy I ran across is in the library at Cleveland Community College, in Cleveland Ccounty, NC.
Have done quite of bit of research myself on the descendants of this family as I descend thru William & Amy's son Willis.
Hope this gives you some clues.
Best wishes, Judy
