The Editor’s Corner


Website -- The www.McAninch.Net website is still a work in progress, and is being updated often.

There are now ‘locator pages’ (links) to help find material organized by various geographical units,

different States, Canada, Ulster Province, (northern) Ireland, etc. And, my recent research report on

“(Old) Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Franklin Township” has been listed on the Hendricks County, Indiana,

GenWeb site; hopefully, people with information on the other families associated with the Pleasant Hill

Methodist Episcopal Church and Cemetery can find the report, and add to our total knowledge base.

And, in Indiana, the 1862 Draft Enrollments have been posted, and the Civil War muster cards from

William S. McAninch, gun Sergeant, 18th Indiana Light Artillery Battalion (Capt. Eli Lilly’s unit).

and younger brother of Samuel McAninch, was living in Jefferson Township, Putnam County, Indiana;

he was indexed as “David M. French”; found and reported by Connie Norheim, Fargo, North Dakota.


An Old Irish Folk Tale (Don’t Believe a Word of it): This old tale goes … “found in an old letter –

An old history of Ireland relates that an Anthony Perry of Inch (province) moved to Kildare and was

called “An Inch.” Later, in the year 800 “Mc” was added that indicated ‘son of’ which constituted the

name “McAninch.” NOT – see McAninch.Net > Surname page, MacLysaght, Clan MacInnes, etc.
