This site is dedicated to the study of one's ancestors. I have included links to a number of sites, with a concentration on places of interest to my family. Others may find some of the links useful in their own research - thus the existance of this site. You will see a number of references to places in the western portions of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where my ancestors were concentrated. Our "home town" is a small village of Marietta - located on the north-west bank of the Susquehanna River. The McKain Family of Marietta all descend from one William McKain - born about 1760. He came to the United States in 1798 - leaving from Port Rush, Antrim, Ireland and arriving in the Chester, PA area. He married (1799 near Philadelphia) a first generation U.S. citizen named Catherine Hoff - daughter of a revolutionary war soldier named Johan Jacob Hoff. They had eleven children. My branch of this family was from a son, William McKain, Jr. who married Jane Mary Reisinger. This couple had thirteen children. This rapid growth of the family in just 2 generations resulted in the scattering of the family into other portions of the United States - especially Allegheny County, Pennsylvania as well as some portions of Iowa.
