  • Notes 
    • (Research):Zebulon Kankey was admitted on trial as a Methodist Episcopal preacher in 1792, and was appointed to the Dutchess Circuit in New York.  In 1793 he was sent to Otsego, New York.  In 1794 he was ordained Deacon and sent to Fairfield, Conn.  In 1795 he was sent to Granville Circuit, New England.  In 1796 he was ordained an Elder, and sent to Kent Circuit.  In 1797 he was assigned to Cecil Circuit.  In 1798 he "located" at Hart's Church which overlooks Old Field Point.  Zebulon bought 109 acres, part of Brereton on the North side of the Elk River.  Zebulon sold his land on Plumb Point (Brereton) to his brother-in-law Edward Wingate, on March 25, 1803.  Somewhere during this time Zebulon moved to Virginia, and bought land to the West of the Potomac River along the North Side of Neabsco Creek, in Prince William County, Virginia.   On June 1, 1812, Zebulon posted a Bond with Governor Barbout for $1500 which permitted him to perform marriages.   Per Marilyn Opfer, Zebulon later sold more land to Edward Wingate, abt 1826/7  (citation:  Cecil County Maryland land records, Deed, J.S.24, Page 54).  My grandmother Clara Kankey gave me an old spoon that she said once belonged to my "grandfather" who was a traveling preacher.  The spoon has a "K" on the handle.  I wish I had asked a few questions while I had the chance.--Roland Kankey  A letter from Ethel Dalrymple Helm (Sept 1990) indicated that her grandfather (James Montgomery Kankey, Jr.) told her his grandfather's name was Zebulon, and that Arminta Meeka Dalrymple was named after his Grandmother (Araminta Montgomery) and his wife (Meekey Hames).
