  Email Phishing and Spoofing Scams: Fake emails are another international ‘epidemic’ today,

  and, any of these spoofed and scam emails do not come from mcaninch (dot) net, as explained

  in this article (database breaches, and ‘bad actors’ using my name without my permission).

  William McAninch, Kentucky Pioneer: We believe that our two early Kentucky pioneers,

  Daniel McAninch and William McAninch, were probably related, and traveled together through

  (eastern) Tennessee and the Cumberland Gap into Lincoln County, Kentucky, in the late 1790s.

  Fortunately, William can be traced through the 1790s to his death in 1813. Unfortunately, there

  are a lot of related myths and misrepresentations about William and his family. This article,

  with specific source citations, summarizes the known facts and timeline for William McAninch,

  his wife, and five (known) sons. The article also exposes (and de-bunks) some of the myths and

  legends about William and his family, with historical context and analysis of the known facts.

  Coronavirus Vaccinations: We are both now “double-shot members of the Pfizer herd” here,

  and we hope that you have all been able to get your own vaccination shots.
