Hi, I just made contact with a Mark McConnell, who is a descendant of William McConnell of Wayne Co, Ohio and who resides in Kosciusko Co., Indiana. Thus I started some research for McConnell's in this County. I'm a descendant-g,g grandson, of David McConnell (brn. 1792/Pa.). Just in the spirit of delivering interesting information here, Mark recently submitted a DNA sample into the Familytree DNA genepool. FTDNA is also connected to the Clan Donald DNA Project. My McConnell's are also members of FTDNA and the Clan Donald Project. Mark has found that via his entry into FTDNA/ Clan Donald Project that we are related via DNA. Mark is also related to Charles McConnell who descends down from a William McConnell (1735-1812)who was married to a Mary Magdalene Bernhizel/Bernheusel. This is a Lancaster Co., Pa connection. Charles's William McConnell, a John McConnell (a line I beleive I may descend from) and a John Hineman (my great,great, great grandfather-his daughter Catherine married David McConnell) all went to Trumbull Co., Ohio around 1800 and are on the 1801 Poland Twp,tax list together. This may shed some early light of our McConnell movements. You can observe some of our DNA connections by visiting the Clan Donald Project and going to the Yellow-Green listing for Leinster Irish Group we are in. Thanks.
