The information that appears here,in large part, is due to the help and efforts of John Fox. His keen eye caught a posting on the internet that lead to our meeting and the awareness that a great grandmother of mine is also a relative of his. John has given encourement and advised me to always explore and never take my first findings as fact. It is hoped that those who seek information about my branch of the McMahan family tree will find some of what they need. Any information would be appreciated and I'm always willing to share information that Ihave so freely been given.
