Multiple John McAninch’s in early western Pennsylvania


There were multiple John McAninch’s in early western Pennsylvania. In the previous issue,

we looked at the evidence for John McAninch, Armstrong County pioneer. John, born ca.1760,

in Ireland, was in western Pennsylvania in 1790, and subsequent. This John (‘elder’) had a son

John (‘younger’), born ca.1800, married Barbara (Shoup?), and went to Wyandot County, Ohio.

Another John McAninch was born 23 Feb. 1821, in Pennsylvania, married Isabella Walls, and 

lived in Rimersburg, Clarion County, where they both died, buried in the Rimersburg Cemetery.

Who are the parents of this John McAninch? (John, born 5 Feb. 1821, Penn., died 26 Apr. 1902).

John and Isabella were married ca.1845, probably Clarion County, Penn., and had nine children.

In this issue, we examine Archibald McA/Ninch, born 1760-1765, in Ireland; Archibald was in

western Pennsylvania before 1800, and moved to Ohio, in 1816. And since Archibald moved his

family to Ohio in 1816, he could not have fathered anyone born in Pennsylvania after that time,

so, Archibald is not the father of the John McAninch in Rimersburg
