Looking for Info William McKinley (1826) and family

+2 votes
William McKinley is my great grandfather. (Tyrone, Ireland) I have his immediate family but looking for his parents, etc.  He was married twice and had quite a few children.  Children of his first wife came to U.S. in the early 1900's.  His son Alexander is my grandfather.  I believe that his children from his second wife stayed in Ireland.  (But no guarantee of that)

I've found this blog https://irishmckinleys.blogspot.com/2010/12/armagh-branch-moses-john-benjamin.html

to be a bit helpful in researching some McKinleys. Warning though, the section on David LOGAN is incorrect. There were two contemporary David Logans in Augusta County -- only one married Jane McKinley. (Mother of General Benjamin McKinley Logan).

Thank you for your help.  I have seen this blog, and the McKinley's in it could possibly be direct relatives, but at this point I need to work on the 1800's in order to go back into the 1600's and 1700's.  There are so many Alexander's and William's in the McKinley family, that it's hard to tell which one is a direct decendant.  I have searched quite a few Irish websites and have not found the connection to William's father yet.
