Peden, Jr., Family Line Publications, 1991.)  DAR application of Louise Henry (April 1, 1952) cites the date of March 2, 1778 with a reference "Cecil County, Maryland, Signers of the Oath of Allegiance", page 10, by Mollie Howard Ash.  (copy received March 1998 from Judity Henry, Piney Creek Lane, North East, Maryland.)  Assession of 1783 recorded that John Kankey had one log dwelling, one barn, and two outhouses.  The location was on the North East River.  He had 100 arable acres, with 133 acres wooded.  The value was given as $174.15.
