Hello Bob,

Thanks for the response to my query. I have Capt. William A. McGinety's pension papers but there is only mention that he was born near Lexington, Fayette Co., Kentucky, 26 February 1840. He married Hester Jane Hitch near Concord Church, Pendleton Co., Kentucky by Rev. Henry P. Thompson. It mentions the celebration of their 50th Wedding anniversary together in 1912. It appears that Christopher Columbus and William A. are probably brothers. John P. McGinety also served in the 7th Kentucky Cavalry, Co. "E". He was promoted to 1st Lt., 24 June 1863. He resigned 23 August 1864 - no reason given. He probably is another brother. Look forward to reading the article you are sending.

ADDENDUM: There is a Pvt. William H. Shively who served in Co. "E" also. He was b. about 1828 in Pendleton Co., Kentucky and d. at the home of his son, William A. Shively, in Vanceburg, Lewis Co. Kentucky 29 May 1911. Are you related??

Dave Bush in old Guyandotte, Virginia (now WV).
