  • Note:

    Only proof I can offer that our William McVey married Rachel Akers before Elizabeth Merritt is that Nettie Nitchell claimed it on her DAR application; and a daughter of Rachel's, Polly McVey Woods, died in Union Co. IA near where William McVey died. Descendants of Rachael also list William's father as John McVey. Two marriage records exist for Rockbridge Co. VA for two different William McVeys.

    Info on a (not ours) William McVey who married Polly Lowry 1805 Rockbridge, VA:

    To: vyrn@netscape.net Subject: Fwd: James Mcvey

    Gerald Mack is submitter/descendant of Polly Lowry. His email is GMack29376@aol.com
    Gerald Mack says:
    No I don't have anything more for my William McVey's father, only the name of his first born son (James Lowry) and the fact that there was a James McVey in Augusta County Va. at the right time period. One other fact that may be relative or it may not be--James McVey was a carpenter and in 1775 he took on an apprentice, and later was commissioned to build a casket for someone in the County. William McVey of Adams County Ohio was a very competant carpenter and I have a cousin who is a direct descendant of his that has a chest of drawers that he built for his daughter Lydia when she got married. Tradition passed down
    is that he made one of these for each of his four girls.

    So as not to confuse this other William McVey, his groups sheet is included here:
