Research Notes

Transcription of the McAlvey family Bible on Genealogy.com: It's noted that this transcription shows son Samuel's name mis-transcribed as 'Daniel'.[3] Images of this Bible have been shared by Ancestry.com user DonMcAlvey. A careful comparison of different D's and S's written in the same handwriting and ink show this name to be written as "Samiel" (sic).

Parents of Samuel A. McKelvey: Unfortunately, many Ancestry users believe the Samuel A. McKelvey, who was born in 1825 in Pennsylvania, was the son of Nathaniel McKelvey (b. 1801) and the grandson of John McKelvey and Martha Hamill. Samuel doesn't match this family for the following reasons:

  1. Nathaniel had a son named Samuel who was born in 1850 according to the 1850 census.[13] It would have been extremely unusual for Nathaniel to name two living sons Samuel.
  2. The first Samuel, b. in 1825, would have been born before Nathaniel's first marriage to Lettice Clark on 16 Nov 1826.
  3. DNA matches on Ancestry.com show descendants of Samuel A. McKelvey match other descendants of Elizabeth Moore and John Calvy. For example, Anonymous Moore and Ancestry users R.R. (managed by rbrager88) and Jeannine McNamara all match each other. Anonymous Moore and R.R. match 114 cM of DNA across 5 segments. Anonymous Moore and Jeannine McNamara share 85 cM of DNA across 2 segments. The closest, inferred common relative of all three persons would most likely be Elizabeth Moore of this profile. Elizabeth Moore is likely the 2nd great aunt of Anonymous Moore. Elizabeth Moore is inferred as the closest common ancestor of R.R. and Jeannine McNamara. R.R. is a direct descendant of Samuel A. McKelvey and Jeannine McNamara is a direct descendant of James McAlvey, son of Elizabeth Moore.
