Re: Joseph W. McGinty b. 7-24-1861. Who is he??

In Reply to: Joseph W. McGinty b. 7-24-1861. Who is he?? by Vicci of 959

My records show the following:

Joseph William McGinty b.7/24/1861 (AR)
Parents: Thomas B. Mc Ginty b.1844(AR)

He had three wives so it may be a "Miss" Targenton, Louiza Tarkinton or Elizabeth Hammers (dates of marriages are confusing but his mother is probably Mis Targenton)

I have no information on his wife or children so yours is the first source I have seen on this.

Thomas McGinty was the son of Joseph J. McGinty b.1770 (GA) d. 1851 (AR) who was the son of Robert McGinty b.1746 (PA) and d. 2/10/1841 (GA)and Deborah Jackson b. 1749 d.1850.
and his mother is beleived to have been Levisa Shaw, Joseph's second wife.

Ellen McGinty b. 8/1862 was the daughter of James Madison McGinty b. 1841 (AR) d. @ 1862 (AR) who was maried to Emily Scroggins. James was a son of J.J. McGinty b. 1814 (MS) who was also a son of Joseph McGinty and his first wife Elizabeth Hood.

The information I have is that James amrried Emily Scroggins with James Trout as witness. After he died James Trout married Emily. The 1880 AR census shows Ellen D. McGinty living with James M. Scroggins and Samantha Scroggins (her grandparents.

We have beleived that James was murdered by one of the Scroggins men (who threw a rock and hit him in the head in an argument over politics). There was a custody battle over Ellen with J.J. McGinty trying to get custody of her. Ellen probably moved to OK at asome point having married Lawson A. Mason who married Elizabeth Trout we assume after Ellen died.
