am looking for information on a family that appears to be named McDannel. The father James was born between 1780-1790 in Pennsylvania. The mother Saloma Shook is born about 1797. The family is found living in Franklin Twp. Stark county, OH on the 1820, 1830, and 1840 census. In 1840 Franklin Twp becomes part of Summit county, the family didn't move the county boundry did. In 1841 the father James dies and the mother moves to Wells county, Indiana with her children. The mother remarries and the children are all separated. Given only heads of households are listed in 1840 it really makes it hard to track this family. I believe this family is related to the McDannel family of Stark county, Oh also the McDannel family of Polk, IA and the McDannel family of Pennsylvania. I could really use some help with this line. Anybody have anything?
