The Mckenzie's originate from Kirkcudbright County, Scotland. Many in the family went to Canada after the lease on the farm expired in 1856. My ancestor, Robert Mckenzie, married in Dublin in 1863. By 1870 he was back in Dalbeattie working as a granite polisher. In 1890 the family emmigrated to Barre, Vermont. After 1890 no trace of the family can be found in Kirkcudbrightshire. John James Mackenzie, son of Robert Mckenzie, became a public official in Barre from 1901 to 1907.
