One of our men is Robert Monahan b. 16 Dec 1819 or Jan 1818 at Changersburg, PA.Possible siblings include John b. c. 1815 who was at Placerville, CA with Robert & William in 1850 & at Waterloo Twp., Grant Co., WI in 1870; William b. c. 1816; Joseph b. c. 1826; Martha b. c. 1829; & Nancy b. c. 1831.
Robert was a miner for gold at Placerville in 1850 and at Lafayette Co., WI in 1855.
