Hi,Debbie, What a miraculous coincidence that I should decide to do McMahon-an-chen & vars,today and here you are! All these names are familiar to me from previous research.My 3g was Anne McMahon of Rowan who married Samuel Wellman in 1791.Dean McMakin sp? tells me that the closest he can get to estimating her parents is James and Susannah but that is not cut and dried.Do you know of Dean's research on this family? Sam and Anne left NC c1795 and went to Mad.Co.,Clark Co KY where my 2g Joseph Wellman was bn,then on to Orange Co.IN. I have scads of notes on McMahans,most of which you've prob.read already. If you have the dates on the other children,we can see if Anne fits in.Do you also have bp's?
