My G/Grandfather, John H. McMichael, born abt. 1857 in Phila. was the son of William McMichael, born in Phila. Pa. abt. 1834 and Cecelia (?) b. abt 1835, Ireland. The 1860 census lists three sisters with John; Lucinda, Elizabeth and Mary. John married Marceline Harriet Warren and later moved to St. Louis, Mo. Where, after her death he remarried. John had a total of 7 sons. In this line is the singing group, "The Merry Macs", popular in the 1930's and 1940's. I am searching for the parents of William.

My Great Grandfather, James Omer Adams was born 1849 in Illinois of William Adams (b. 1824, Ohio)and Susan Nancy Talbott. James O. married Mary Livingood in Iowa. He was a journalist in Marshalltown, Iowa. William Adams' father was David Adams. I would be happy to exchange any information that I have.

I have information back to 1600 for the Lehning surname and to 1741 for Shanklin/Rayburn.

I am willing to share details any of the above with anyone interested.
