I have a brick wall. Storrs (or Stores) Makyes came from Connecticut sometime prior to 1810. He was married to Rebecca Smith. Their children were Stores, Smith, Edwin, Amos, and Diana. Edwin stayed in Onondaga County and had a son named Edwin. Diana married William Wheeler and moved to Michigan.
I'm trying to find out where Stores and Rebecca came from in Connecticut, and what the origin of the Makyes name is. I've seen it spelled many ways.. Mackeyes, Makyres, Makyes, Makeys.... and I think it's pronounced Mc 'Eye, derived from the Scottish name Makay. I saw a road named Makyes Road in Syracuse and wonder at its origins as well.
Does anyone know where I could look for more info? Im a stay at home mom in TN, so a trip to Onondaga is not feasible right now. Are there old books or census records with info between 1790 and 1820 that anyone would recommend??
Thanks for any assistance and direction you can give!
