Peter McKinney    

McKINNEY, PETER, was born in Lawrenceville, N.J., on the 17th day of April, 1817. He was a son of Patrick and Sarah (Brown) McKinney. Patrick was a native of Ireland, and emigrated to New York in 1792. He was a brother of John McKinney, who settled in Brokenstraw in 1795. Patrick settled and married in New Jersey. He died about 1820, leaving a family of three children— Mary, Peter, and Elizabeth. Peter is the only one now living. He married in 1840 Sarah Ann White, who was born in Pittsfield in 1820. They reared a family of eight children, five of whom are now living, as follows: Elizabeth, Amanda, Almeda, Orris F., and Stella, while Olive, Lena, and Genevieve are deceased. Sarah Ann McKinney was a daughter of James and Eunice White. Mr. McKinney, who is one of the most prominent citizens of the county, has been called upon to officiate in the following public positions: deputy sheriff, constable, town commissioner, school director, and assessor. He began lumbering and farming at an early day, and by his industry, economy, correct habits and fair dealing has achieved a conspicuous degree of success. He is now a retired capitalist. His son, Orris F., married Emily Grennell, by whom he has had one son and one daughter. Mrs. Patrick McKinney settled in Pittsfield with her family in 1824, where, ten years later, Peter embarked in the lumber trade. He died on the 22d day of December, at his old homestead in the township of Pittsfield; was sick two months and fifteen days; buried in Garland Cemetery.
