Looking for direct descendants of John and Catherine (Shannon) McElravy.Prior contacts lost during upgrade/transition of files.Hoping to reconnect withdescendants of Benjamin McElravy b. July 24, 1827 and David McElravy b. October 6, 1829.I am descended through David's daughter, Anna Elizabeth b. March 27, 1865.
Census records provide that John McElravy was born in PA.Currently pursuing solid leads from other PA counties that this branch of the McElravy's were indeed native to PA as other groups document during the early-mid 1800's as well.
John McElravy's birthdate of April 17, 1800 and subsequent Census records suggest this branch of the McElravy family to be of possible pioneer classification in the central areas of PA.Due to frequent reassignment of county lines and township/borough borders during the early years of settlement, accurate determination of the movement of these individuals has been difficult.Research continues.
Some members currently reside in/around Rimersburg, Reidsburg and Sligo in Clarion County.Last known of other members suggest northern Armstrong and northeast Butler Counties.A favored member resides in Virginia.Most willing to share info on this branch.
