This short summary, covering three generations, names 64 cousins I can trace.  But the name of McKenney will survive only through the sons of Mame, the son of Cousin Richard, and my son Jon.

This spring, in my 50th year, I became a grandfather.  I hope that this account may be of some interest to my grandchildren and to others of the third and fourth generation after Jonathan, even though they do not bear the name I have used with pride
