MCKAY Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including MacKay, McKay, Mackey, MacHugh, Makee, and Makey, this is a surname which can be either Irish or Scottish. It derives from the pre 10th century Old Gaelic name MacAodh, with the prefix "Mac" indicating "son of", plus the personal name "Aodh" meaning "fire". It was originally the name of an early pagan god. Traditionally Gaelic family names are taken from the heads of tribes or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed. Sometimes in Ireland this is by O', meaning grandson or male descendant of, or in both Scotland and Ireland Mac, as above.

Daniel McKay and Margaret or Mary McClennahan immigrated to Scotland circa 1840 with at least 4 of their children. At least 2 of the children were born in Antrim, more were born in Scotland. Both Daniel Sr. and Daniel Jr. died in West Lothian Scotland, I am not able to locate them prior to immigrating nor to locate Margaet/Mary after the death of Daniel Sr. Their daughter Margaret married my ggrandfather, Charles O'Donnell in 1863 and immigrated to the US.
