    Notes 
    • It is thought that Hugh arrived in Canada in 1853 from Scotland. Arrived in Santa Cruz 1883 from Michigan - left Michigan because they were burnt out in the fires - the family sold their last possessions (including the weddings rings) to make the train fare to get to California. Neil stayed in Michigan and began the McKay Printing Company.

      From a letter dated Tuesday, April 27, 1954 Will H. Verd writes to Elliot A. P. Evans:
      "I would guess you to be a grand son of Hugh and Fanny McKay and a son of their daughter Fanny.  Is that correct?  If so, in digging into the lives of the men you sprung from, do not expect them to be characters dressed in "tails and bow ties."  They were honest, rough, tough fighting men.  In fact, your grandfather Hugh McKay, was on occasion, would shout for all the world to hear, "I am Hugh McKay from Santa Cruz and I have never been licked."  It is my opinion if he was ever defeated in an old fashioned fight, it would have to have been when he was old and decrepit."
