The Robert Mackay Clan by Michael McKay who writes,
" Robert Mackay Sr. is the pioneer of this family. One of his great-grandsons, Moses McKay, settled in Warren County, Ohio, near Waynesville where his home still stands on New Burlington Rd. There are three other McKay related biographies as well:

  • One is on Rhoda (Whitacre) Hollingsworth
  • Another is on William J. Collett
  • and the third one I'm aware of is on Joseph Hollingsworth. He descends from Hannah McKay & George Hollingsworth. Hannah is a daughter of Robert Mackay Sr. Joseph came up from South Carolina. After Hannah's death, George remarried and removed with all but one of his children to South Carolina. Because of their opposition to slavery many of them left South Carolina, some of whom came to Ohio."
