Descendants of Andrew L. McConkey
Generation 1

1. UNKNOWN1 McCONKEY

Notes for Unknown McConkey: Oct. 23/15 – I had found parents for Andrew L. as John EDWARD McConkey and Anne ELIZABETH Frackleton, both born in Ireland. However, after receiving comments pointing out inconsistencies in dates and names, it does not seem likely that this is correct. So I have removed them.  (Email Oct 23/15 from John Clarke, McConkey researcher: “I just noticed on your webpage you have listed parents for our Andrew McConkey as John Edward McConkey & Elizabeth Franklin. Doing just a little websearching,  that is highly questionable.  I quickly found a couple sites that claim the Andrew son of those parents has different dates(1800-1866) and a different wife (Margaret Dixon) than our Andrew.  None of the pages I found gave any documentation, so they could be wrong, but I am not listing any parents for our Andrew yet.”)

34 thoughts on “McConkey Family Tree”

  1. Hello Mrs. Stewart,
    Congratulations on your research on your ancestors. In the line of my mother Smith, her great-grandmother is Mary Ann Mc Conkey. She married Jacob Smith probably from Scotland. One of their children John lived in Percé in the Gaspé Peninsula as a fisherman in the years 1841 of his marriage with Judith Grenier. Have you ever seen this Mary Ann McConkey or give me leads so I can continue my exciting research.

    1. Hi Nicole, I have a Mary A. McConkey, born 1858, daughter of Cicero McConkey and Adeline Mott, of eastern Ontario. But I have no husband or other information on her. Maybe someone reading this will be able to help with your Mary Ann and Jacob Smith.

  2. Hi everyone. I am Pauline McConkey MacDonald
    my father was Neil Howard Mcconkey 25 11 1882
    my grandfather was Cicero Marc Tullis McConkey 18 6 1854
    He spoke about his grandfather Andrew L. This grandfather spoke about a place in County Down he called Derry .” it was so beautiful there”
    I find the stats interesting. It is the stories I love.
    I was on the trail of Cicero’s brother Charles. Found a gravestone in Eastern Ontario for Charles and wife. turns out wife was buried there but not any Charles.

    1. Hello, Pauline. It is so nice to ‘meet’ you. I so much appreciate the McConkey photos that came from you to me via Kathy. I have now added you and your brother and sister to my database and will update this page as soon as I can. Thank you, I had no information on your dad’s family. Looking on Ancestry, I see a marriage certificate for Charles McConkey and Jessie Ramsey, married Sept 8 1908 in Windsor ON. Yes, i agree with you. Stats about people’s lives are interesting. But it’s the stories that bring life to the stats and history. Thank you for sharing some.

  3. I just recently found this site and might be able to clear up some uncertainty. I have a pedigree chart for Edward McConkey of Hillsborough who married Elizabeth Frackleton (his 2nd wife).

    Edward McConkey (1762 – 4 Apr 1848)
    married ( Aug 1795)
    Elizabeth Frackleton (1777 – Nov 1851)
    Issue:
    1. Marianne (22 May 1796 – 27 Nov 1875)
    married (18 Aug 1826)
    John Davidson McCready (29 Nov 1798 – 27 Oct 1877)
    Children: Eliza, Edward, William, William, David, Andrew,
    Christopher, John, Eliza, Marianne
    2. John (1 Aug 1797 – 30 Apr 1872)
    married (9 Dec 1843)
    Bessie Evans (16 May 1822 – 3 Mar 1879)
    Children: Edward, Annette, Andrew,
    Christopher, Elizabeth, Margaret
    3. Andrew (21 May 1800 – 24 Aug 1868)
    married (14 Oct 1828)
    Jane Isabella Dickson (1808? – 6 Feb 1837)
    Children: Joseph, Andrew, Annette, Jane, Mary,
    William, Charles, Charles, George, Alfred
    4. Eliza (15 June – 28 Oct 1885)

    1. Thanks John.
      So, after reading your info Edward Mcconkey & Elizabeth Fraskleton are not the parents of our Andrew that was married to Lorannah.
      Good info.

  4. Great work everyone!
    So excited to find this website however I see my writing on a Mabee photo so I am going to assume I have been involved prior.
    I just discovered from a 1851 Census that Andrew McConkey born 1796 (age 56 at time of census) stated he was born in the U.S. I had much of the same info as stated but now I question his birth in Ireland. By the 1881 census Lorannah was a widow living with her son who stated English/Scotch ancestry
    I have a photo of Andrew, Lorannah with their family of 6 children – I am descended from George, Emma Jane, Charlie Mabee, Ilene Mabee Lenentine is my mother
    Just received call from Pauline MacDonald. She is mentioned on your website. She just received an envelope of 30 photos, all labeled!!! I will be meeting with her next month to view.
    I’m going to study your photo further & will keep it in mind when viewing Pauline’s photos next month.

    1. Hi Kathy, and thanks. Your photo has passed through enough hands, it seems, that it ended up with me and on here! I’m glad that’s all right with you. Thanks for the information on Andrew. I’ll put it in my database and see if anything else turns up. If you can, I’d love to hear how it goes with the envelope of new pictures. That’s very exciting!

  5. I’m a. McConkey by birth, descending from Cicero and Mary Desire Procunier. My great grandfather was Neil Howard McConkey and my grandpa was Neil Harold McConkey. I love seeing all this history! Thankyou for sharing!

    1. Neil Harold is my brother. The farm we grew up on is back in the family. Our sister Mary Beth’s youngest grandson bought it. They are raising goats for milk and shipping to Hewitts. Your Uncle Tim is my main connection to my brothers family. So glad to see your post.

  6. Hi Dorothy!
    Wow, what a lot of work that you have done! I commend you.
    I am trying to find out about my mother’s mom. Her name was Margaret Emily McConkey, born September 9, 1918. She was from penetang. My mom thinks she could of have been born in Midland or Waubaushene. I can not find anything. Her parents were William McConkey (born in Scotland, she believes) and her mom was Mary Alice Wood. Williams siblings were Earl, Charles, Leonard, Zoa Van Deuan (Art), Jennie (sarah Jane) Burtch…Gord

    I am having a hard time finding much. My mother is trying to find out who her “real” dad is. My mother is now 76 and really would like to know.

    If you can help any, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Darlene Raymond

    1. Hi Darlene, and thanks. You may already have this. I found it on a rootsweb page of Simcoe Co. 1900 marriages:

      14975-00 William James McCONKEY, 26, lumberman, Harvey twp., Waubaushene, s/o Richard McCONKEY & Sarah Jane HURL, married Mary WOODS, 22, Wyevale, Waubaushene, d/o Richard WOODS & Mary MORROW, witn: Isabel TURNER of Toronto & Alex SUTHERLAND of Hamilton, 27 Aug 1900 at Coldwater.

      Looks like your William and Mary Alice. Here’s a Rowe Family Genealogy page that has Richard and Sarah Jane, with William and 4 daughters. The names don’t match those you give, however it might give some help. If I find anything, I’ll let you know.

  7. Hi Dorothy, I am doing research on my husband’s McConkey family. The information I have been able to find trace back to Thomas McConkey, b. 1768, in Tyrone, Ireland, married Sarah Porter, he died in 1862, in Township Innisfil, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. This information also shows his parents as John Edward McConkey and Elizabeth Frackleton. Your information shows your Thomas David McConkey as being born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1781. I am confused about Elizabeth Frackleton’s birth and marriage years which you show as 1795. Was Thomas, John Edward McConkey’s son from a previous marriage? Thank you for any help you can give me.

    1. Hi Debra, I think you should stick with the information you have on Thomas. I found John Edward McConkey and Elizabeth Franklin as parents of Andrew L. (my ancestor) on Ancestry trees. But it’s been pointed out to me that it is probably a different Andrew who was their son. Still, the siblings I have listed for my Andrew are those I found on Ancestry. Checking alternate info I have for Thomas David McC, I also have 2 Ancestry trees that have his dob as 1781 in Tyrone, Ireland. For Elizabeth Frackleton, I also have dob as 1777. Looking at dates for the kids, neither make sense. I’m not finding another wife for John Edward McC, so I just don’t know. I think I will remove this generation completely from my tree so it doesn’t add to the confusion. Good luck with tracing your husband’s branch, and thanks for writing.

      1. Dorothy & Debra:
        This is a mystery. I have Edward McConkey born in Hillsborough Down Ireland in 1762 married to Elizabet Frackleton born on Nigherlin Down Ireland 1777
        I found their son Andrew born in 1796 my 3X great grandfather in a senses with wife Lorannah stating he was born in the U.S.
        I don’t have a list of all their children. As she was only 19 when Andrew was born I will assume he was her oldest…lets hope. Assuming this couple is Andrews parents could they have immigrated to U.S. & Andrew born there prior to moving to Canada
        The Andrew from Armagh Irland coming thru Quebec cannot be Lorannahs husband based on the census.
        Thoughts?
        Let me know how to get the Andrew Lorannah family photo to you

        1. Hi Kathy, I would love to add more on the early generations to this tree but I don’t want to put incorrect information on it either. So I defer to your knowledge. I’ll contact you by email. I’d love to have the Andrew and Lorannah photo you mention.

  8. Hi. My name is Mark Northcott. Hugh Edgar McConkey is my great grandfather on my mothers side (she was born McConkey.). I have a paper copy of the McConkey tree that goes back further than this I believe.

    1. Hi Mark, thanks for writing. I see Hugh Edgar McConkey was my Emma Jane’s brother. In my FTM database, I have their grandfather Andrew’s parents as John Edward McConkey (b 1762 Co. Down d 1848 Co. Antrim N. Ireland) and Elizabeth Frankleton (1777-1851). I have no parents for him, but have Andrew Frankleton and Mary Stannus (both b and d Co. Down) as Elizabeth’s parents. I don’t know why I didn’t include them in this tree. Maybe I wasn’t sure enough. Do they match what you have? Do you know anything more about the elusive Lorana/Lorenna, Andrew’s wife?

  9. Hi Dorothy 🙂 Last night I sent you a bunch of information that I had about the McConkey’s…but unfortunately I don’t see it anymore…did you get it??? If not I can send it again if you like 🙂 ??

    1. Hi Janet, hope you see it now. I didn’t do anything, but can see it on the McConkey page. Thanks so much for all this information. I am especially thrilled about Andrew McConkey’s parents, and that they came from Co. Down. I’ve spent a bit of time there, so I’ll enjoy looking further into this. About the children of Andrew and Loranna’s that I don’t have – I may simply have missed them or not been sure so I’ll check it out further.

  10. Hi Dorothy.
    Wow!! you’ve done A LOT of research 🙂 This is wonderful 🙂

    Anyway, after reading through all this wonderful information I wanted to share what I might be able to add/help with. Some time ago we had a small family reunion in St. Thomas (when my folks were still with us) and we met one of her distant cousins Pauline MacDonald…who is decendant on the McConkey side. She provided some information and pictures, but will need to study them more to let you know where exactly she fits lol 🙂
    But…just to let you know…you have a few pieces of missing information on the children of George and Nancy Mabee, I thought maybe you’d want to update your records with:) The had 5 children (and one stillborn) beginning with:
    Harvey Harmon ‘Walter’ born Jun 17, 1921. died Dec.24, 1993 md Elizabeth Downey of Midlothian Scotland.
    Virginia (Virgie) Geraldine Euphema b Feb 8, 1923, died Jan 5, 2013 md Rex Butcher
    Clarence William b June 25, 1925 died July 6, 2001 md Margaurite Brown
    Marion Bernice b April25, 1925 died Sept 29, 2005 md Frank William Baxter
    (there was a stillborn baby girl between my Mother and my Uncle Donald :(– that I was told lies in an unmarked grave on, what use to be their farm – I should mention to that apparently my A. Bernice, also had a stillborn baby buried along side this one at some point…that was what I was told by my Grandmother, Nancy Ann (Rice) Mabee)
    Donald Leroy born Nov. 19, 1931 died May 3, 2000 md Shirley Anne Vernon
    Austin Lloyd born June 29, 1933 (still living) md Leona White (first wife) md Jean Vyse Vaughan

    I also have some photos that Pauline provided to me of Cicero, Leonard Jon and Adolphus..What I’m curious at is, originally I was provided information that Andrew L McConkey and Loranna had 8 children (??), but your records don’t show a John William, died Jan. 23, 1834 or a Peter born 1932…sorry haven’t done too much research on this part yet….And Andrew’s parents names were Elizabeth Frankleton b 1777 Nigherlin, Down, Irelend md to Edward McConkey born 1762 Hillsbourough, Down, Ireland. Elizabeth’s parents were Andrew Frankleton b. 1736 in Dromore, Down, ireland to Mary Stannus b Down, Ireland AND his parents were Robert Frankleton b 1700 Dromoroe, Down County Norther Ireland (south of Belfast) to a Miss Stevens. These records I will need to verify, unless you have confirmation of anything??

    As far is this particular picture…amazing 🙂 But unfortunately I’m at a loss right now to help you as to who she might be, though…we have picture of my husbands side of the family done on tin plates that date back to early 1800’s…if that helps 🙂

    Hope to talk to you again 🙂

  11. Hi Dorothy…great information you have worked so hard on I’m sure. I am looking for a member of the McConkey family, who may have resided near Sutton, Ontario, Canada in the late 60’s..(1968)?? do you have any helpful info that may assist in my search?

    Thanking you in advance….:)

    1. Hi Kathryn and thanks. I see from wikipedia that Sutton is near Simcoe. I have McConkeys in Oxford County, which is fairly close to there, but not much help without more to go on. You might contact the town or search provincial/county records and census records. If you know parents’ name, also look for them, or a sibling. Can’t think of much else!

      1. In 1930 s we sometimes drove #19 highway between Tillsonburg and Ingersol.Going north up a hill to Ostrander my father always mentioned a side road to the left. He would say” I have a cousin down that road, should we drop I think this relative was married to Amy Amelia Butler .My mother always said “mabee next time Neil”.
        This is Oxford county. I liked the sound of Amy Amelia.

        1. Went to school with those Mcconkey cousins of yours.Believe they had a hog farm? not too far outside of town. There were a few kids, one girl named Charlene?? That was on #20, Delmer/Brownsville rd. Not many old farms left on that road. Too many years ago. hahaha!!!

    1. Hi John, thanks for writing. I hope to get back to my own genealogies, including the McConkeys, before too long so I will remember your offer. Thanks.
