Joseph McMahon, b. PA, 45, farmer.
Mary A., wife, b. VA, 34.
Elizabeth, b. IA, 16.

In 1900 he was living in Big Flat, Owyhee Co., ID.
Louis E. Mcmahon, employee, b. IA, Aug 1857, stock herder.
In 1910 he was living in Hagerman, Lincoln Co., ID.
Lewis E. Mcmahon, divorced, b. IA, 54, farm laborer, father born-Ireland & mother born-VA.
I didn't find any of his family members after the 1860 Census.
You can contact Lincoln County Tax Assessor, state.id.us/aboutidaho/county/lincoln.html and hopefully find out more about the land he owned.
