Birth: unknown
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 19
Berkeley County
West Virginia, USA

Studied medicine, and according to an obituary notice published by the "Virginia Free Press", "was a man of prominence in the state." It reads as follows: "On the 19th of July last, Dr. Thomas McKinney, of Darkesville, Berkeley Co., Va. He was a Pennsylvanian by birth- a son of Major Joseph McKinney of Shippensburg, formerly of the U. S. Army. He commenced the practice of medicine in Darkesville in 1827, since which he was so fortunate as to lose only one patient. He had an extensive practice and was much esteemed by the people of Darkesville and its vicinity, both as a physician and a man. Their kind treatment of him was a full manifestation of their respect for him. He was visited by four physicians, and regularly and judiciously attended by Dr. Page, assisted by Dr. Gaery. He died without a struggle or a moan, and apparently death was no terror to him-as if the arm of the Lord was about him, as the mountains about Jerusalem and his abiding place was to be God's house forever."

Believed to have married Elizabeth Bozzell, in Berkeley County, Va., Oct. 25, 1821.

Grave is believed to be in Darkesville Cemetery.
