This might be the McGinty you're looking for??
James McGinty, brother of Robert, shows in the Federal census of 1810, living in Concordia Parish, LA. At this time, Concordia Parish was quite large and took in what is now Tensas Parish. In 1810, the McGintys lived in LA, just across the Mississippi River from the mouth of Bayou Pierre, Clairborne Co., MS. Today, that area is in Tensas Parish. His family is shown as three males under ten, two males, 10-16; one male, 16-26; one male over forty-five (he), two females, 16-26; one female over forty-five (wife) and no slaves. He is listed in the 1816 tax roll for Clairborne Co., MS, but is then missing from a later 1816 federal census where his wife, Lydia is shown as the head of the household. This census shows Lydia with one male over twenty-one, two males under twenty-one, two females over twenty-one and one female under twenty-one. Based on this, James could have died in 1816. Lydia is not found in the 1820 census, so she could have died before then. A member of the Tunis Hood family, Dellmann Hood, wrote a book titled The Tunis Hood Family: It's Lineage and Traditions. It mistakenly shows that Lydia Hood married Alexander McGinty, Jr., when in fact, she married James McGinty.
