Daniel McAninch, Part II: From Pennsylvania, 1790, to Lincoln County, Kentucky

page 2001-11



The Editor’s Corner


In this issue, we’re proud to present a significant part of the Daniel McAninch story, from western Pennsylvania, 1790, to Lincoln County, Kentucky, 1799. The family followed the classic Scots-Irish (Ulster Scots) migration trail, down the great Shenandoah Valley of western Virginia, with a stop in eastern Tennessee, and then through the Cumberland Gap on the Wilderness Road into Kentucky.


Among other things, the birth-places of the two sons Samuel (born 1789, Pennsylvania) and George (born ca.1794, Virginia) illustrate the migration down the old Wagon Road towards North Carolina.


Actually, this is the second part of his complete story, with the other parts planned for future articles (Part I, the early years, Pennsylvania; Part III, Casey County, Kentucky, and Part IV, Giles County, Tennessee). This Part II story, however, is the first part actually written in article form.


Our Mangled Surnames:


One of the early McAninch pioneers in Kentucky was William McAninch, discussed in the “Part II” article about Daniel McAninch. William died in 1813, Casey County, Kentucky, and named his five sons in his Will; his youngest son, Jesse, went to Carrollton, Greene Co., Illinois, in 1842. Jesse was hard to find; an earlier researcher transcribed his given name as Isaac, from the 1813 Will, and the surname was mangled in the 1850 census: indexed as “Mackirlsh, Jesse” [AIS Illinois 1850 Index], the actual census record is “Jesse MacKinich” [NARA M432 Roll 108 pg. 84 (B) (also marked 167)].
