Hi All
Maggsie,I have looked at Irish Ancestry,but have found different spellings for McKinney,ie McKenny.M'kennie,very confusing.possible Samuel at Treansallagh, in Griffiths near Strabane.
Sinann and Aghadowey ,All the information you have listed is correct.
The Margaret Gall (widow) I think couldbe Kenneth.s step mother.
Thanks for all your efforts

Samuel's first wife was possibly Elizabeth:

Can't find a child Kenneth (maybe a middle name adopted as first name?), but there was a couple called Samuel McKinney and Eliza McElwein / McIlwaine / McElwain (and other variations) who had a number of children in Donegal & Tyrone, including this Thomas in 1877:

Edited to add: This Samuel McKinney married Elizabeth McIlwaine in 1862 in Rathmullan Presbyterian Church in Donegal, him and her were servants, his father was Samuel McKinney, a farmer.

Interestingly, another of their children's births places the couple in Oaklands:

That will learn me, I didn't look for a death in 1899 because he married the same year I stopped 1898.
