Another Mahaney researcher I have talked to has not been able to find Mahaneys on the Ship transcriptions.I'll I know is that my line was in the Country when Country was formed.
We have my line as: 1.John Mahaney b. abt 1780 Md d. 1862 Ritchie Co. WV m. Susanna 2. Jeremiah Mahaney b. 1828 PA d. 1898 Ritchie Co. VA m. Christiana Barker (2nd wife) 3. Albert E. Mahaney 1867 WV -1940 OH m. Hattie McClintock 4. Jerah Noble/ Gerald Mahaney m. Elizabeth Cavalier
Jerah and Elizabeth were my great grandparents.
I had found a William Mahaney in the 1790 Cecil Co MD census. I believe him to be John's father.I had seen on the LDS website a birth record for a William Mahaney in Frederick Co Md to a John Mahaney and Susanna Lantz in the correct time frame for the William I have.
