I descend from the McAfees of Mercer Co., Kentucky. My 5th-great grandfather, Robert McAfee, was part of the McAfee Company of 4 brothers and other kin who surveyed the area of central Kentucky, and established Fort McAfee in what is now Mercer Co. Since beginning my research in earnest in 1995, the more I learn about my roots, the more pride I feel in the pioneer spirit of my ancestors.

This update (February 2012) is the seventh major revision since the database was originally posted in 1999. I am very grateful to all of the cousins who have shared their research with me, and have given permission to post it here - thank you!!! What follows are family register reports for the descendants of John McAfee Sr. to eight generations. My line is: John I - John II - James - Robert - Samuel - William C. - Clark Roberson - Laura Alice (my great-grandmother).

I have made every attempt to accurately record and document the data presented here. However, there will undoubtedly be incomplete information or discrepancies. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments about this database. If you do note any discrepancies, please identify your sources.

Hope you find what you are looking for here! Enjoy! -- Jenny Tenlen
