James Adam Mackey was my great grandfather. As his father's name was also James, he was known as Adam. He was born and died in the same house, although for several years he lived elsewhere. His was a farming family.

When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted in the army on December 27, 1861. He was in the 4th NY Heavy Artillery Co. B as a private. He was primarily a teamster for his unit. His tour of duty ended January 3, 1865.

After he left the army he lived for a time in NYC, working there as a teamster. In NYC on August 21, 1875 at the church of the Epiphany, he married Charlotte Jane Forrester who had been born in Dublin, Ireland, but who had emigrated to America a few years earlier. The couple lived on Perry Street in Manhattan, and had 5 children: Frank Forrester (1878), Mary Charlotte "Mayme" (1880), Alice (1880), Catherine Georgina (1883), & James Governor (1887).

In 1890, after the death of his parents, Adam moved his family back to Mackey's Corners in Schoharie County and once again took up farming. He lived there until his death in 1909.
