Winneford (Holford) McKinney

Winnie Holford, the fourth child of John and Sarah Holford, was born 30 June 1816.

She married James M. McKinney. He was born 30 July 1809.

They had the following children:

1. Mary, born about 1838.
2. Sarah, born about 1841.
3. Margaret, born about 1843.
4. Henry, born about 1845.
5. Taylor, born about 1847.

In the 1850 Census, James is listed as a farmer with real estate valued at $1800. He owned 24 slaves. There was also a doctor living with the family. Probably not a bad thing to have with 31 people in the household.

Winnie died 16 March 1863 and is buried in the Cookeville City Cemetery. James died 17 November 1879.
