My second great grandfather is Duncan McKenzie married to Barbara McLaurin McKenzie. The family came to Covington County, MS in January of 1833 and settled on property adjoining Allen Stewart. Among the correspondence in the Duncan McLaurin Papers at Duke University are letters Duncan McKenzie and family members wrote from Covington and Smith Counties to Barbara's brother in NC from 1833 until about 1867. Allen Stewart appears often in these letters. Duncan and Barbara had six surviving sons: Kenneth, Hugh, Daniel, Duncan, Allen and John. Allen is my great grandfather and the only one of the family, to my knowledge, who lived into the twentieth century. Would love any information on this family and any connection with the Allen Stewarts, for I am sure both families were connected from Richmond (Scotland) County North Carolina. Barbara's parents are buried in Stewartsville Cemetery in Laurinburg, NC.
