I have George Robert Washington Gahagan, b. 20 Jul 1802 d. 27 Jun 1870, delegate to Constitutional Conventions 1865 & 1868, Legilative Session 1868.He married Mary Emaline West, daughter of Leonard and Mary McCoy West in 1841, but I have no dates for her.
I have that he was the son of Lawrence and Sarah Pringle Gahagan, who left Ireland in 1802 in some trouble after the rebellion of 1799. Children I have listed are: Ann Eliza 1790 Matthias 1792 Hester 1795 married Hezekiah Barnard Lawrence 1797 Sarah 1799 George Robert Washington b. in Edgefield, SC in 1802
George bought 2 tracts of land, 4000 acres each and several other smaller tracts of land in Laurel River Section of Buncombe County.
In the late 1840's they built a spacious house near Laurel River.
I personally thing I have seen and been inside this house, but it was standing vacant at the time, and that has been about twelve or thirteen years ago.
I would love any information about the Lower end of Geo. Robert Washington Gahagan's family.I have a dear friend who is a descendant I am certain, but I haven't made the connection to any of George and Mary's children.I have their names, too, it they are needed.
