Traces of the Past: Ancestors

Deep Roots In The Family Tree

My maternal great, great, great grandparents John McGannon (b. 1793, d. 1875) and Mary Polly Carney McGannon (b. 1807, d. 1894).  The McGannon and Carney families arrived in what was to become the United States in the in the 1700’s. John’s father, Darby McGannon, was born in Belfast in 1756. Darby served in the Continental Army in the Revolutionary War. Darby’s mother, Mary Maltby, may have been born in North Carolina in 1730. She died in Culpepper, Virginia in 1759.Polly Carney’s mother, Sallie Cogswell was born in Culpepper, Virginia, in 1769.  The McGannon family migrated from Virginia, to Kentucky, to Indiana, and finally to Minnesota.

Thanks. I have been doing some research and found these on a website, hence the poor quality. It is so interesting to discover where and who you came from.
