  Texas Tyler Co Mahaffey Barclay family
  Posted by: Teddy Barclay Pope  tpope77497@aol.com   July 12, 1999 

  My great grandmother was Mary J .Mahaffey  Powell Barclay, m to James Walter
  Barclay b. 1831 whose first wife was  Martha Foster.   James Walter was the son
  of Robert Barclay and Sarah  Mc Kinsey and Robert was the eldest son of Walter
  Barclay b 1774, Rowan Co NC  and Elizabeth McQueen Barclay b 1790, Madison
  Co Kentucky,  daughter of  John McQueen and  Nancy Crews  McQueen.  Walter
  and Mary (Mahaffey) Barclay had several  children,  including Henry Franklin Bar-
  clay  b 1868 est  and  James Walter Barclay  b. 1871 who  married  Pool  sisters 
  Clara and Laura. Walter and Mary J. are buried in Mt.  Zion  Cemetery to the right
  of the Woodville to Chester highway four miles south of Chester.

  I  am  interested  in exchanging information with descendants of  the  Mahaffey's
  and am just beginning my search or that surname.

  I was  interested  in your  message about Rutha and  Ashley Mahaffey.  Jonathan 
  Peters  b 1829,  married  Elizabeth Pace who died  giving  birth  to her   8th  child. 
  {Jonathan and Elizabeth are my greatgreatgrandparents}   I then know that Jona-
  than married  Rutha Mahaffey,  b.1825  after the death of Elizabeth.  Is this Rutha 
  and  yours  one and  the same?   I am  related  back  to  Jonathan and  Elizabeth
  through their 5th child, Mary Peters who  married George H. Vinson.  George and 
  Mary had  6 children,  and  their  2nd son,  William  Henry "Bill"  Vinson  was my 
  grandfather. I know that 3 of Mary &  George Vinson's children married Mahaffeys. 
  Two of their children married Dickens. "Bill"  married  Margaret "Maggie" Dickens 
  while George W. married Nellie Dickens.  I am  very curious to know if this is part
  of your lineage.   My father was the second  born and  first son of Bill and Maggie.
