Daniel (or David?) McA/Ninch, early western Pennsylvania (second generation?)    

 

In the early western Pennsylvania records (Allegheny County, and then Armstrong County,

set off in 1800), there are multiple ‘sighting’s of an unknown Daniel (or David?) McA/Ninch: 

 

1800

1800, Allegheny County, 1800 Tax List, “Buffaloe Township” [sic] [Notes 1, 2, 3, 4]: 

 

 

218 / McNinch, John / Farmer

[Line 218, pg.72]

 

. . .

 

 

227 / McNinch, Daniel / Farmer

[Lines 227, 228, and 229 on pg.72]

 

228 / McNinch, Archibald / Farmer 

Archibald, went to Franklin County, Ohio [5]

 

229 / McNinch, Daniel / Farmer 

 

 

1800

1800 Census, Armstrong County, Buffalo Township [Notes 6, 7, 8, 9]: 

 

 

 

“D[unreadable] McAninch  0 0 1 0 0 - 4 1 2 1 0 - 0 0”, Buffalo Twp., Armstrong Co.;

 

 Males: 1 16-26 [b.1774-1784]; Females: 4 0-10, 1 10-16, 2 16-26, 1 26-45

 

1807

1807, Armstrong County, 1807 Landowners List [Notes 9, 10]:

 

 

 

The following persons were principally Landowners [in] Sugar Creek Township

 

(and “. . . Henry McEnich [sic], Archibald McEnich, William McEnich . . . William

 

McEnnich.[sic] . . “ were also listed as “landowners in Buffalo Township” [Note 7] 

 

. . .

 

 

David McNinch             

'Daniel (or David?) McA/Ninch'

 

Henry McNinch            

Henry McAninch, b.1777, went to Jackson Co., Ohio

 

Arch. McNinch         

Archibald McNinch, went to Franklin County, Ohio'

 

William McNinch         

William McAninch, b.1770-1775 [‘elder’ William]

 

William McNinch, Jr.

The 'Jr' ['younger of two ‘William's] implies this man 

 

. . .

is William McAninch, b.1783-1784, son of John McA.

 

1810

1810, Armstrong County census

 

There is no separate ‘Daniel’ (nor David) record in the Armstrong County 1810 census.

 

However, Archibald’s 1810 census record includes himself (1 male, 45 & Over) and  

 

a younger adult male 26-45 [born 1765-1784], and we know (from the 1800 census)  

 

That Daniel (or David) was born 1774-1784, so, this could be the Daniel (or David) 

 

in the 1810 census [Note 11].

 

So, it is my current hypothesis that this ‘Daniel (or David?)’ is probably the oldest (known)  

son of Archibald McNinch, and that this ‘Daniel (or David?) probably also went to Ohio 

when Archibald and his family moved to Ohio in 1816 [Note 12].
