Alexandrina Mackenzie of Ballone is what we genealogists call a “gateway ancestor.” She opens a path to all of the major families of the early British Isles, as well as to the royal houses of Europe, the Emperor Charlemagne, and on back to the beginnings of recorded history.

Alexandrina descends from Feradach (progenitor of Clan Mackenzie) as well as dynastic marriages which bring in the following: Conn of 100 Battles  (Ireland), Cerdic the King of the West Saxons (Wessex, England), Olaf the Tree Hewer (Norway), Rhodri Mawr, Prince of Gwynedd (Wales), John, Lord of the Isles (Scotland, Clan Donald), Robert the Bruce (Scotland, through whom, the Stewart kings and the current royal family), Edward I (England), William I, the Conqueror (England), Charlemagne (Emperor, Continental Europe), Saint Louis IX (France), Anne of Kiev (Russia) and more.

I have included the ancestry of Kenneth, 1st of Kintail as well as of his wife, Morna MacDougall of Lorn. I have depicted the major branches of Clan Mackenzie; namely, those who descend from this marriage, in what is believed to be the order of seniority. The lines associated with the titles Earl of Seaforth and Earl of Cromartie are each given their own chapter.

Alexandrina Mackenzie of Ballone lived at a time of great change in Scotland. When I first learned about her, I felt a strong connection, and have wanted to record her place in history, and her lineage. I hope that sharing this information will help other members of our large, extended family, the Clan Mackenzie, and its offshoots. It is good to know one’s heritage, but it is even more important to honor it.

Smith's Clove,

The Early History of the Village of Monroe, New York

 

Authored by Cornelia Wendell Bush 

 

Smith's Clove, the present-day Village of Monroe, NY, is named for its first settler, David Smith. He came from Long Island, purchased two lots of the Cheesecock Patent, and developed a farm, orchards and a grist mill. He and his sons lived in peace for a short while before the outbreak of the American Revolution. As Loyalists, they were harried, their property was seized, David himself was incarcerated on a ship on the Hudson River. Members of his family were executed, and a few escaped to Canada. His farm became the Village of Monroe at its incorporation in 1894. Members of our community came together to commemorate the Centennial of that event, and we published a book called the Celebration of the Century, the History of the Village of Monroe. At that time, I provided a portion of this book and allowed it to be incorporated into that one. Originally drafted in 1993, this is the 2015 edition.
