I'm descended from Eliza Mahanna who married Joseph Eberhart in MD in the 1830s.Eliza was born app 1814.While I have her listed on a record as Mahanna therre were very few, in fact practically no Mahanna/Mahanas in Baltimore in that time period.She is supposed to have been born there.The only other Mahana I see in the census in 1850 is Basil.
Basil was a shoemaker, like some Mahannas of Carroll County at the time.He was born app 1809 and died between 1860 and 1870.
I am trying to locate Eliza, and suspect she was related to some Mahaneys who lived near Eberharts.I also suspect she could have been the sister of Basil.
My question---does anyone have a record of these people?I am trying to find out if Eliza was related to John Mahaney of Baltimore and also Basil.
Eliza's descendants go by the names Eberhart, Swan, Vogelgesang, and Randall (for which I have information). I descend from Mahanna--Eberhart--Swan--Randall. Please, if you can, help me connect her to another Mahanna/Mahaney family.
