This newspaper account from the Yorkville Enquirer, 2 Aug 1860, gives further information about William McKenna of Donegal & Lancaster County, South Carolina. He is described as having been married three times. His first wife is named as Cloe Fuller, married about 1803. His second wife was Anna Cousart. Ellen Quigley was his third wife and was still living at the time of his death in 1859.
Further information about William McKenna and the people he enslaved here
Further research needs to be undertaken to ascertain if Anna Cousart, being the only child of James & Elizabeth Cowsar, had a dowry of enslaved people upon her marriage. My thanks to Catoe4 who posted this newspaper account here www.findagrave.com/memorial/162904266/william-mckenna
