Indiana to Iowa: William Skidmore McAninch (1835-1901) --

 

William S. McAninch, born 5 March 1835 in Indiana, was the youngest son of Samuel and Polly

(Skidmore) McAninch. His full name, William Skidmore McAninch, has been reported by two of his

Kansas descendents, brothers Wayne E. Bailie, in Kansas, and Jack (John) Bailie, now in Texas.

Charles Franklin and Mina (McAninch) Higgins are great-grand-parents of Wayne and Jack Bailie.

 

William Skidmore McAninch and Mary M.(Maria?) Johnson were married 1 Feb. 1859, Hendricks

County, Indiana. Their first child, daughter Elmina Alice “Mina” McAninch, was born 25 Dec. 1859

in Indiana, and was baptized in 1863 at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Coatesville, Indiana.

 

Mina married Charles Franklin Higgins, 17 Oct. 1882, at the home of the groom, in Kellerton,

Ringgold County, Iowa. Charles went by 'Frank', a shortened version of his middle name. He clerked

in the A. H. Teale Co. store for many years, then opened his own grocery store in Kellerton in 1890.

In 1889 he was elected City Councilman [Kellerton info from Rosalie Schack CGRS Owatonna Minn.].

 

Before 1893 they moved to the Des Moines area (Berwick, now part of Des Moines, would have been

its own town back then). Mina (McAninch) Higgins died 4 Dec. 1943; Charles ‘Frank’ Higgins died

31 Dec. 1948; both are buried in Berwick, Polk County, Iowa [Jack Bailie has pictures of their marker].

 

Iowa: 1928: Cyrus Clark McAninch

 

Cyrus Clark, son of Joseph and Elizabeth McAninch, was born near Amo, Hendricks County,

Indiana, September 15, 1849, and passed away May 31, 1928, at his home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

He was 78 years 8 months and 16 days old. When Mr. McAninch was about 16 years of age he

moved with his parents to Ringgold County Iowa; settling northeast of where Caledonia is now.
