Notes
a. Note:   James Wilson McKennan, son of Captain William and Elizabeth (Thompson) McKennan, was born in Washington, Pennsylvania, September 2, 1804. Graduated from Washington College in 1822, and after leaving college he studied law, and was admitted to the bar, beginning practice of his profession at Millersburg, Ohio. His career at the bar was brief, for dedicating himself to the work of the ministry he studied theology with the Rev. John Anderson, D. D., of Upper Buffalo Church, Pennsylvania, and was licensed by the Washington presbytery in 1828. In 1829 he was ordained and installed as pastor over the churches of Lower Buffalo and West Liberty, where he remained until 1835, when he took charge of the Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. His health becoming impaired he was compelled to resign, and after spending some time in traveling he took charge of the church in Florence, Pennsylvania, subsequently in Elizabethtown, Lower Ten Mile and Frankfort Springs. He was an earnest and impressive preacher. Later he served as rector in the preparatory department, and as adjunct professor of languages in Washington College, and for some time was engaged in teaching in Wheeling and Moundsville, Virginia. He received the degree of D. D. He died in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1861. --- Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania
