Note: From the url: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kieffer/p152.htm Martha Butler b. circa 1744?, d. before 1772? Birth circa 1744? Martha Butler was born circa 1744? Birth Record Martha Butler's birth date of "about 1744" is just a very approximate guess. Her husband Charles McKinnis was born in 1722 and they were married in 1764. Charles was about 42 years old at the time of their marriage. If Martha was about 20 years old when they got married she was possibly born about 1744. However, if she was closer to the age of Charles McKinnis she could have been born closer to 1722. Marriage 27 September 1764 She married Charles McKinnis on 27 September 1764 in the area of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.1 Marriage Record The marriage of Charles McKinnis and Martha Butler could have taken place in the area of either of present day Cumberland County, Pennsylvania or Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Author Charles Wright states that Rev. John Conrad Bucher who performed the ceremony was a traveling minister who serviced communities in both areas.1 Death before 1772? Martha Butler died before 1772? In (area of Westmoreland County?), (Pennsylvania?); Martha (Butler) McKinnis's death date and death place is not known. Records suggest that her husband, Charles McKinnis, married Rachel Carr/Kerr about 1772, so Martha probably died sometime before 1772. She possibly died in the area of present day Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania because Charles McKinnis was in that area prior to his marriage to Rachel Carr. The date and place of her death is just speculation however. Family Charles McKinnis b. 1722, d. 16 January 1806 Citations 1. Luther R. Kelker, "Record of Mariages Performed by Rev.
