William McElhaney1,2

M, ID# 8339, (1736 - 1801)

     William McElhaney was born in 1736 at Buffalo Creek, Botetourt Co, Virginia. He married Mary Cunningham in 1761 at Augusta Co ?, Virginia. William McElhaney died in 1801 at Grainger Co, Tennessee.
      William McElhaney's birth date varies between 1836 and 1843 and his marriage date between 1759 and 1761. William lived on Buffalo Creek, Botetourt Co, VA when his children were born, migrating to Grainger Co, TN with at least his children Nancy Agnes, Rachel, James and Ann who was said to have died in that county. Reportedly Moses, Rebekah and Ann may be by spouse(s) other than Mary. William supposedly married Mary Bowen but it was later discovered she was Mary Cunningham. Note that our ancestor William has been confused with other William McElhaneys living in Pennsylvania and South Carolina, although our ancestor was having children in Virginia between 1765 and 1780 before moving to Tennessee.

William was mentioned in a number of Augusta Co, VA court records. Land acquisition records include:
--8 Dec 1761, William Patrick and Mary, late Mary Chittam, to William McElhenney, a farmer, 53 pounds, 214 acres, line of Robert Renick's land, conveyed by Wm. Cleghorn to Mary Patrick, then Mary Chittam, Mar 1754. Delivered: Wm. McElhenney, 14 Aug 1788. (Chalkley, p. 158)
--21 Jul 1764, Joshua Hedley, executor of Joshua Hedley, deceased, to Malcome Allen, of Prince Edward Co, VA 16 pounds, 50 acres by patent, 3 Nov 1750, called the Pound Bottoms, beginning south side James River, at the lower end of the Bottom, a hill opposite an island. Teste: Hugh Martin, Martha Allen, Hugh Allen, Robert Martin. Mary McElheny. Delivered: Francis Smith, 1 Oct 1767. (Chalkley, p. 770)
--2 Oct 1765, Henry Bowin and Anne to William McAlhany, 50 pounds, 107 [sic] acres by deed from Lilley Brown. (Chalkley, p. 330) William's son John married Henry and Anne's daughter Margaret Hannah circa 1790.
--17 Oct 1765, Wm. McElhenny and 400 acres added to tithables. Henry Bowen and 323 acres added to tithilbles. (Chalkley, vol 1, p. 16?)
--18 Mar 1768, Vestry met. William McElheny and Paul Whitley appointed processioners vice John Maxwell and Jonathan Whitley. (Chalkley, vol 2, p. 432)
--William McElhennys served as a processioner for the Processioning List of 1767/68, including for his own land. Processioning was the periodic review and agreement to property lines between settlers' lands. Processioning Lists help determine the general area of a settler's lands and their neighbors at specific time periods. Processioned 1767-68 by Wm. McElhenny and Paul Whitley: For Samuel Walker, John Maxfield, Wm. McClenachan, David Cloid, Edley Paul, James Cloid, William Hall, Christian Vingard, John Bouers, John Logan, Benj. Estill, Wm. McElhenny, Henry Bouns (Bonns), Henry Cartmel, Samuel Gibson, James Bates, Paul Whitley, Jonathan Whitley, Wm. Logan.
--21 Dec 1768, Commission for privy examination of Mary, wife of William McIlhenny, deed dated and executed 14 Feb 1769, to Alexander Stewart. Delivered: Wm. Moore, Jan 1780. (Chalkley, p. 363)
--14 Feb 1769, William McIlhenny to Alexander Stuart, 155 pounds, 197 [sic] acres purchased by Henry Bowen from Lilly Bowen, his mother, 6 Sep 1765, and conveyed by Henry Bowen and Ann to William McIlhenny, 2 Oct 1765. On James River; corner tract belonging to John Bowen, deceased, of which this 197 acres is a part. Teste: Samuel Walker, James McGavock, James McElhiney, Samuel McDowell. (Chalkley, p. 364)
--18 Mar 1773 and 23 May 1773, William McElhenny was a witness from Botetourt County. (Chalkley, Vol 1, 25 and 122)

The above court notes are from Chalkley's work and are used here with this caveat prepared by the Library of Virginia: Lyman Chalkley's three-volume Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia Extracted from the Original Court Records of Augusta County, VA 1745-1800 (Rosslyn, VA, 1912-1913; reprint, 1965) provides leads to identify original records to consult, but "the abstracts contained an abundance of transcription errors, erroneous dates, misspelled names, material omissions, and other serious mistakes ... condensed to the point of mutilation ... many entries misrepresented the contents of the original documents ... [and included] only some of the records that pertained to persons and families in which he was interested ... could easily lead to the erroneous conclusion that the absence in the abstracts of information ... meant that there was no information on the person or family in the county court's records."

In 1801 William prepared his will: I William McElhinay, of the County of Grainger and State of Tennessee, being low in body but of perfect mind and memory, and calling to mind the mortallity of my body and knowing that it is apointed for all men once to die.... Next I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Mary, all the whole of my estate both reil and personal during her natural life. Shold any of daughters marry during my wifes lifetime I alow her to give them what she may find convenient to spare them. I further alow my Negro boy named Ned to my two sons, Robert and John McElhiny, or their sons Harrow [unclear whether a person's name or a farming implement with tines dragged over plowed land to break up clods, remove weeds and cover seed] at a reasonalble rate during his natural lifetime. Further I alow at my wifes decease for my Negro woman Henny to be sold and equally divided between my three daughter, Rebekah, Rachel and Jennet. If any of these three girls should die without ishu for them to leave their part to some one they think fit into the family. My wife to have the boy Ned duren her life time and the off spring of the old Wench she may dispose of as she thinks fit. Further, I will give and bequeath unto my son, John Moses, the side of Christys Creek the land that he now lives on the creek to be the line. Further more I will and bequeath unto my son, Robert, the land that I live on myself and the land that sid Robert lives on himself. I give and bequeath unto my Nan McGinnis six shillings sterling. I gave and bequeath unto my daughter, Ann McElhiney, six shillings sterling. I give and bequeath unto my son, James McElhiney, six shillings sterling and to my children thereafter mentione, Moses McElhiney, Peggy Shields, John McElhiney and Martha Blackburn each six shillings sterling and lastly I constitute nominate and order and apoint my son, Robert McElhiney and James Bowen to be exevutors of this my estate will and test and so by these present I disalow and disaprove of all other wills and tests and do rectify and aprove of this to be my last will and test given unto my hand this 127th [sic] day of June one thousand eight hundred and one. (signed) William McElhiney (X his mark)

McElhaney research is complicated by the use of many versions of the surname in official records of the 1800s using all possible vowel variations: Mcelhaney, Mcelhenny, McElhinay, McIlhenny, McAlhany, McElhay, MacKenny, McKlekeny, McKlenhenny, MacKlehenny as well as McGillray and even Murry for William's daugther Martha on her marriage record.

To provide additional information about William McElhaney some primary sources are needed to verify any of the reported information about his parents and grandparents that follows:

William McElhaney's father was reportedly John Henry McElhaney / McElkene (born 1707, Limerick, Ireland; died 1766, Augusta Co, VA) who was the son of Henry McElhaney (born 1638; died Oct 1718) and Jane Hunter McGeehan (born 1677, Limerick, Ireland; died Oct 1718, Augusta Co, VA), who was the daughter of John McGeehan (born 1650, Ireland; died 1672 Ireland) and Molly Hunter (born 1655 Ireland; died Ireland.) William's mother was reportedly Marjorie Mary Smallwood (information seemingly inaccurate because 1701-1789, both in Australia .)

If this is the correct parentage for William, John Henry McElhaney's sister is supposedly Lillian "Lilley" McIlhaney [sic: note last name spelled differently] (born 1709 Donegal, Ireland; died 1 Apr 1780, Botetourt Co, VA) who married John Bowen. John Bowen's widow, Lillian McIlhaney, sold land to William McElhaney in 1769 (see below.) Considerable research was done on the Bowen family for a different generation but not entered into the database because the connection was not proven; nevertheless if this is the correct linkage in this generation, other data is available on the Bowens.

     Mary Cunningham was born c 1741. She married William McElhaney in 1761 at Augusta Co ?, Virginia. Mary Cunningham died a 1801.
      Four different Mary Cunninghams are purported to have married William McElhaney; all have been eliminated as his wife. Researchers report Mary the daughter of:
--Samuel C. Cunningham and Mary McKemy / McKemie of Ireland was born in 1741 but that Mary married Col Charles Berry in 1756 and had a large family up through 1778, ultimately dying in Virginia.
--Hugh Cunningham and Sarah Davis was born in Ireland in 1743 but that Mary died in 1763 in Botetourt Co, VA; thus she could not have married and had a large family.
--David Cunningham and Angeline Ann Wilson was born in 1746/1747 in Ireland, again that Mary was too late to marry in 1761 in America.
--Daniel Cunningham and Ann Hudson was christened 11 Feb 1749 in Leicestershire, England, again that Mary was too late to marry in 1761 in America.
The possibility that William did not marry a Cunningham also exists.
