Henry McAninch had only one parcel of land, 110 ¾ acres, purchased with William H. Beavers

in 1835. In 1836, Henry bought Beaver’s half interest, and sold it all to Joshua Morris in 1837.

 

Samuel McAninch also had only one parcel of land, 25 acres. In 1828, Samuel married Margaret

Myers, daughter of Charles and Rebecca (Williams) Myers, and he bought the land in 1829, from

Davidson Myers, relationship unknown. In 1832, the land was mortgaged to John W. Bodenhamer,

and Samuel and his family went west to Missouri.

 

On the other hand, John McAninch was involved in a lot of land transactions, starting in 1814, and

ending with the Dishough + McAninch steam sawmill in 1840, leading to the four-way split in 1841,

[John McAninch (elder) and “Alexander Ferguson, John H. McAninch and Samuel D. McAninch”].
