JOHN MACKEY,2 or Mackie, of Kincon, Parish of Kilmore, County Armagh, "being weak in body, but perfect in memory," made his will 4 Mo. 11, 1699. First.

7 Mo. 6, 1699, William Macky, David Kell, Joseph Mackey certify that they have "Received full Satisfaction of our mother concerning our fathers Last will." (Records of Ballyhagen Meeting.)

Children of John Mackey: I. Joseph, II. William, III. Benjamin, IV. Rebecca, and V. Martha.

In 1681, "John Macky [County Down] had taken from him for Tithe, by Hugh Powell and Edmond MacElcoshker, two Stooks of wheat, eleven Stooks of Oats and two Stooks of Barly, all worth seventeen shillings."-Stockdale, 175.

I don't know where the [County Down] comes from but it does not feel correct. The townlands of Rockmacreany, Kincon, Ballyhagan and Money are all in Co. Armagh and some distance from the nearest point of Co. Down. [RFSS Mar 2003]
