While looking at the 1880 census for my 1st cousin 4x removed, William A McKay, I had to smile when I saw the occupation of the next head of household. At 71 years old, Riley E Anderson was a "worn out minister." Hopefully, he told the minister that mainly in jest!

Just in case someone might be related... William A McKay's mother, Jane Eliza Close, was a sister of my 3rd great grandmother, Julia Ann "July" Close (1826-1905), who married John W McClintock (1825-1890).
Do we share common ancestors? I'd love to talk! Please leave a comment or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
