We are Descendants of Isaiah and Ida Cork McKinney.
Isaiah McKinney is the son of Hilliard McKinney and Margaret Quinn McKinney. He was born February 17, 1867 in Mississippi and passed away December 23, 1948.
Ida Cork is the daughter of Samuel and Senie Cork. Ida was born October 19, 1885 in Choctaw County, MS and passed away December 26, 1950. She and Isaiah are buried at Spring Hill Cemetery in Reform, MS. Isaiah and his first wife, Mandy McKinney (born 1881) had one child together, Mattie Bell McKinney. Isaiah and Mandy resided in the same home as he and his second wife, Ida. This was acceptable practice during this time.
Ida Cork had two children (Willie Cork and Erma Lee Cork) when she married Isaiah. Willie and Erma’s father is Buncomb "Bunk" Cork. The 1910 Federal Census record indicates that he resided in the home of Sam and Celia (Senie) Cork and is listed as a nephew to head of household Sam.
Isaiah and Ida McKinney had seven children together, six daughters and one son (Elouise McKinney, Inez McKinney, Rosie McKinney, Essie McKinney, Evie Mae McKinney, Mackie McKinney, and Sam Hilliard McKinney).
