Looking for info on William MCKINNEY (or MCKENNEY), Loyalist. Have found passenger list indicating he arrived in Digby Oct 1782 on the British Man O War ship AMPHITRITE - with wife and 2 children. I also located William on a muster roll of Loyalists mustered at Digby on May 29th, 1784 with his wife and 3 children. I don't know his wife's name. His children (William Jr, Sarah, John and Margaret) eventually settled in Charlotte Co., NB, West Isles (i.e. Deer Island). I located marriage record of William Jr to Elizabeth HUBBARD at Trinity Church in Digby in 1796. Elizabeth HUBBARD (b. 1781 - d. 1871)- 1871 NB census indicates Elizabeth, age 91 was born in the U.S. but I haven't been able to locate her birth record in the US. Any info you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.
