Sadly, Two Deaths in October


Doris Maybelle (McAninch) Johnson (1926-2004), died 22 October 2004, in Edina, Minnesota.

Dick Schack, Vancouver, Washington (rfschack@wa-net.com) wrote:

“Doris was one of eight children of Leslie Oliver McAninch and Edith May Olds. Doris’ father,

Leslie, traveled to northern Minnesota by wagon, at the age of 11, where his father, Oliver Olin

McAninch, homesteaded on virgin timber and meadow land, one of the first white settlers in that

part of the county. Doris was one of the few remaining ties to the Haypoint homestead that the

McAninch families lived on for about 45 years. My brother Bob, and I, may be the last living

descendents of the McAninch line that spent time living on the old Haypoint homestead. The log

house, built of logs from the homestead, still stands and is in good condition in 2005. (I would be

interested in knowing if there are others out there who spent part of their early years on the homestead).”


Lillian Louise McAninch (1932-2004), died 6 October 2004 in Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona.

Born in Chicago, Lillian had a long career as a Reference Librarian, principally in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

Lillian was the ‘big sister’, and was known as ‘Sis’ and ‘Aunt Sis’ by her family; my ‘cousin Lillian’

did a lot of McAninch family history and genealogy research herself, and, after she retired, she moved

to Prescott Valley, Arizona, in 1999. I will always treasure the memories of the research trips that we

made together, in Illinois, and down to southern Indiana, and then all the way back to rural Kentucky,

where Marshall McAninch showed us the 1790’s land grants, and other historical places in the family.

Lillian has been buried with her family in the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Worth, Cook County, Illinois.
