I am searching for the parents & sibblings of two brothers, Marshall & Sylvester McMahan, who's parents were reported to be from Ohio, according to census's.
It is believed that this McMahan family moved from Ohio thru Indiana to Illinois and eventually settling in Paducah, Ky. of McCracken County.
Marshall was reported born in Ohio (abt.1828),died Jan 22, 1883 and Sylvester, born in Indiana (abt.1835), he was also known as Capt. Ves McMahan, of the steamboat "Metropolis".
These brothers married the sisters, Rosannah M. & Elizabeth J. Adkins, daughters of John Graham & Nancy (Covey) Adkins.
The "Grantor and Grantee Deed Indexes 1825-1938, McCracken Co.,Ky" indicate that these McMahan's, and related families, had land interests in Paducah, McCracken Co.,Ky. from at least 1852-1954.
In addition to the McMahan's and Adkins, you'll find surenames such as Pell, Clark, Broyles, Council, Shelby, Beckelhymer, Farrin, Reese, Fourshee, Englert, Bailey, Barfield, Tilghman, Vasseur, Miles, Mills, Cumley, Watts and
many more.
View the reports, & photos, for indepth infomation about these McMahan's, and related families.
Please contact me if you recognize someone in a photo or if there is a correction or update needed.
Thank you to all that have, inquired about,& or contributed to these findings.
I am happy to share what little info I have.
Thank you
