Elkenny McKay born 1706

by Thomas Vinson

I am looking for any information about my maternal 5th great grandfather Elkenny McKay, born in 1706 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He came to America around 1725 and married Abigail Rood, born 1705 in Norwich, Connecticut, died 1755 in Canterbury, Connecticut.

I found a booklet written by Dr James Adolphus McKay in 1896 on the McKay's that covers the family in America, but has nothing about Elkenny's parents or about Scotland.

I joined Clan McKay, USA a few months ago and also submitted a 6-generation ancestral tree to Ken Bain of Clan McKay, USA. I have also competed MtDNA testing as well as YDNA testing to help in my search

Any help or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
