Jacqui & Gary McMahon [jacnmac@netdex.com]
I have been looking for a woman named Anna Sellers born 1841] married James H. McMahon.  They lived in Delphi, Carroll County, Indiana in the 1880's. She ran a boarding house and he was a carpenter.  They had three daughters: Elizabeth 1864; Eila-1868; Carri B. 1871.
Do these names mean anything?
 
Thank You

========

JAC,
 WHO, WHEN, WHERE did the child you connect marry?
HER birth place ?

See them in 1880 CARROLL CO, IN,
 
Don't have the 1870 census posted on them.
WHEN/WHERE did anyone die?

MIGHT help trace/follow them.
Then we could check MICHIGAN census for her parents.

SEND what you can on Dates and Places.
Thanks, marie, iowa
==========
I  only know that James McMahon was our GGGF's brother. I am trying to trace the McMahon brothers to their parents. I am hoping that if I can find James & Anna's daughters,that there might be something in their history to help me go further.
 
In 1882 James wrote letters to the Civil War Pension Board to confirm that James and Lewis E. McMahon of Barton County, MO, were in fact his nephews.He states that he was in 1853 in Adams County, ILL. when James was born. He also mentions niece, Augusta Ann McMahon, b/1860 in MO. She was later adopted by a doctor in Kansas 1864-and never heard from again...
 
In the letters he wrote, the return address was from Delphi, Carroll County, Ind........that's all I know of him. I got the additional information of his family from the 1880 census. and found the marriage between Anna Sellers and James McMahon.
 
Nephews of James- James H. McMahon and Lewis E. McMahon.......James last known lived in Kansas married Emma Williams- and Lewis married Fanny Dillon and then went on to Virginia where he later abandoned his family and about 1904ish was not heard from again.........every thing I knew started with "hear say"- when I searched for the true information but it stops at the Civil War......I only know dates of births from census records and pension records beyond that.
 
It is possible that James McMahon and brother Joseph's mother might have been Elizabeth since both named their first born daughters Elizabeth........
 
I have no knowledge that they were ever in Michigan but it would not surprise me........Joseph McMahon married Mary Ann Southern in Cedar, Iowa in 1842. Their daughter Elizabeth, was born about 1844 there. Then they were in Adams Co.ILL for son James birth-and Barton Co. MO for the last two children, Lewis and Augusta.
 (Cedar town  = Blackhawk Co, Ia, msh- Cedar Township = Benton Co, Ia, msh)

Cedar = Cedar Co, msh) and maybe other areas, msh)
Thanks for you time

JAC, thanks.
did JAMES MCMAHON and ANNA SELLERS marry in 1861? ADAMS CO, IL or INDIANA?

Was JAMES MCMAHON 1823 IN Civil War?

SO, his Brother? kids = born 1850's ADAMS CO, IL

DO you have the 1860/70 CENSUS on them?
NEED.
Probably where ever they enlisted in CW = ?
WHERE?

ANNA SELLERS is the One BORN in MICHIGAN.
MCMAHON'S probably not there.
HER family moved to IL or IN = Whereever they married =
Fill in some gaps, esp marriage.

JAC, thanks.
did JAMES MCMAHON and ANNA SELLERS marry in 1861  I do not know that? ADAMS CO, IL or INDIANA .?
 
Was JAMES MCMAHON 1823 in  Civil War I don't know....His brother, Joseph McMahon was. James wrote letters to the CW Pension board to say that James W[?] and Lewis E. McMahon, especially Lewis was indeed the son of Joseph.
 
SO, his Brother? kids = born 1850's ADAMS CO, IL James brother, Joseph's SON James W[?] was born in Adams Co. ILL. * I have found his name with a " W" and also an "H"..I don't know what is correct yet...
 
DO you have the 1860/70 CENSUS on them? Only on Joseph's family for 1860 in MO. 1870 Lewis is with a family named Baker in Barton Co. MO and James is with another family also in Barton Co...1880 James is in Labette Co.Kansas. and Lewis is still in Barton Co. (James 1823 and Anna Sellers are in 1880 Carroll Co, msh)
NEED.
Probably where ever they enlisted in CW = ?Joseph lived on the boarder line between Kansas and MO. ..Kansas is where he enlisted.....We believe that his wife,Mary Ann and daughter Elizabeth, both died in about Jan 1863 from a fever, according to a letter written by the woman who took in the McMahon children...
The letters that James sent from Indiana never talked about his family.
WHERE?
 
ANNA SELLERS is the One BORN in MICHIGAN. According to the Indiana census.
MCMAHON'S probably not there.
HER family moved to IL or IN = Whereever they married =
Fill in some gaps, esp marriage. I'll look again to see if I can find out where I found the marriage taking place.
I am surprised that I don't find anything of his three daughters........school, marriages -nothing....no James/Anna death records..unless they left Indiana soon after 1882 when he wrote to the CW ?.
I will let you know as soon as I find[hopefully] the hard copy of the marriage where abouts.
 
Thanks so much again,
Jac
==========
JAC, thanks.

Some towns have 1890ish city directories, esp on business.

WE need an 1870 IN census on this family and my cd's don;t work on WIN200O's .
and I haven't sent them back in for the new ones.
ANYONE HAVE?
DO we have an INDEX with page #???

ASK for a look up on us genweb, ind/carroll co, and ADVISE.
thanks, marie, iowa
==============
I entered a query in Delphi......I'll ask my genealogy teacher if he can find them on an index he might have.....I'll let you know what I find.
 
Thanks
Jac

jun 9, 2003
 
Back in Jan. you graciously sent me the 1880 Carroll Co. Indiana census on the McMahon family.
 again I thank you.....I have since found where they had moved to Ohio where the journey ends.
 
I just noticed now that your name is also Sellers!  Anna McMahon was also a Sellers. At least I think-as I have a marriage for James McMahon and Anna Sellers[ looking for that note at the moment] in either Iowa or Indiana.
Do you know of such people in your lines?
 
Thank you

JAC, send copies or extractions of documents = marriage and census.
SO others can find you and family in these counties/states.
I send copies of All info to our SELLERS discussion group with families in many areas.

I found Anna. Sometime after James death she left with her two remaining daughters,Ella and Carrie, Ella's husband and children going to Dayton, Ohio. She died there in 1922.
I am still looking for who Anna Sellers McMahon's family was.
Her birth year is ranging from 1832-1844.  Her father was born in N.Y. and mother in Penn. Ella married Charles Gradel of Ohio,

Would appreciate ANY info you have = Anna [Sellers] McMahon born in MI -1841 [census records for IN 1880] All  census records for her state her mother was born in PA and father in N.Y.
marriage to James McMahon Nov.01,1861 [I think this is from IND mariage records [from a family member]
first child born Elizabeth b/IND 1864-died between 1882-1900-possibly in Delphi-; 2nd dau-Ella [married Charles Gradel] she was b/IND.1868-died Dayton,Ohio 19April1940; 3rd dau. Carrie B. b/IND.1871-never married died Dayton, Ohio Feb 19,1940
died Anna McMahon died in Dayton Ohio-18Nov1922 .....cemetery records at Woodland Cemetery
lived in 1900 Dayton,Ohio-with two younger daughters and Ella's husband and children
lived last proven place =  Census records for the Dayton,Ohio,1920 say that Anna is living with daughter Carrie B.........by 1930 Carried B. is now living with her married sister, Ella. Carrie died Feb 19,1940 -Cemetery records

 
I did a fast look at Mcmahans and did see some from Ireland and Pa, but no proof. All census records I have for the McMahon brothers says the same thing.......Joseph McMahon was born in PA. in 1815. Brother James also in PA. but in 1823.
We have known from family members that their parents had come from Ireland.

I will try and save these notes.
 
I did see the WM SELLERS here in Carroll Co., In where James and Anna lived in 1880, but, no proof. I have signed letters that James McMahon wrote to the Civil War Pension Board on behalf of his brother, Joseph's youngest son, Lewis E. McMahon-on how he was their uncle and what he knew of the family. His address in 1882 was Delphi, Carroll Co. Ind.
 The Obit may tell something, if you can send last county/state they lived.
since at the 1900 census Anna McMahon is living with her daughters and son-in -law. she said on that census record that she was a widow.

DIDN'T check 1910 and 1920 and 1930 = NEED  they are there also.... 1910- they all live together 1920-Anna is living with her daughter Carrie- by 1930 Carrie is living with her married sister, Ella McMahon Gradel. Anna has died by now.
 
IF you have extracted this INFO, PLEASE SEND.  do you have a fax?
Lets our SELLERS family see you - we can check that county and others Might find you/us!
 
MY records do NOT include CARROLL CO, IN. = marriages = NEED  I am looking again for that one.......
 
SHE could have a middle/other name on the 1850/60 census. never saw one
SHE will probably have an obit in MONT CO, OH? I don't know that yet-I just got the information on the fact they went to Ohio this week!
SOMETIMES, you need to start at the END and work backwards to PROVE.  I am sending away for the death certificate.
 
DID you check Civil War records for McMahon, perhaps, I already asked???  I don't know if james served in the was if he did it would have been Union....I only have the records for James brother Joseph.
YES, memory, that is how you found in IL and to IN.   In a letter to the Board-James said he was there are the birth of Joseph's first born son, James, in Adams Co. ILL. that was in 1853.
I did NOT check IL marriages = they weren't listed in my IN marriages = which did NOT include CARROLL CO, IN=
YOU must check the sources of the marriages to see if ALL counties included!!
 
DID you check the MICHIGAN page ? I believe the CARRIE SELLERS was listed in another census, etc. Carried never lived apart from her mother until Anna died.
 
I will forward you a letter from member who also checked 1850 MI census.

Yes! I saw that entry. He head male is from Italy-Valenta but the female is from Michigan/1853- I cn't make it out -either Francis or Fannie. Carrie/b ILL Oct.1871 is listed as a "daughter" but she is carring the McMahon name and not theirs so I think it might be a cousin/ aunt she's living with.
Were the Sellers in Adams Co, ILL in the 1850's Exactly where?

Wow! that's new news! Thanks...James McMahon stated in his deposition to the fact that he lived for two years near his brother, Joseph, in Adams Co. Ill in 1853 and that he was there when James(the nephew) was born to Joseph and Anna.He said April 20,1853 and James later states his birthday is May 11, 1853 (they have the year the same). The CW Pension files do not say where he was born.(all census say PA) Most of the file is proving that Lewis and James were the children of Joseph. Joseph enlisted in the Union Army in Kansas. He died in April of 1863. Joseph's wife died in Jan. of 1863. I do not know for sure if James might have been in the service at the same time. If so he'd have also been Union.

Mary Ann Southern and Joseph were married Sept 24,1842, Center,Cedar Co. There were Sellers there in 1850.

SEPT 10, 2004

Hi

It's been a while and I did not forget you but I was tracking down that James McMahon family! I did it!

 

Here's the scoop now:

 

Anna Sellers McMahon died in Dayton,Ohio Nov.18,1922

 

James and Anna had several children: We knew of Elizabeth;Ella; and Carrie, but there had been a boy, Andrew,  born in Peru, Miami Co, Ind. (where the girls were also born). Then there were a couple other infants that died.

 

I never found out what happened to daughter Elizabeth-but she did not go with the family to Ohio after James died, like Anna ,Carried Ella Ella's 2 children(Kathryn and William C. Gradel and Ella's husband Charles Gradel did.

 

(note in Anna's obit it said she has 3 surviving children.......Carrie, Ella and who? Elizabeth?-unless Elizabeth married and went elsewhere...

 

James McMahon died in Delphi Sept 14,1885 at the age of 66. (Ind. Health Records)

 

Who were Anna Sellers family? All I know is she was born in Michigan and her father was born in N/Y and mother in PA.

 

Did any of the her related Sellers live in Adams County,ILL. in 1853ish? If so who and where and when? I am trying to figure if the families knew each other from Anna's mothers side- as James and brother his Joseph, were born in PA.

Somewhere they met.

 

James lived in 1853 in Adams County, ILL. a mile from his brother Joseph.(letter to the CW pension board). There is nothing in the Pension board says where they were born or about the family-except that Joseph had no surviving spouse when he died( naturally-she died in Jan 0f 1863 and he April of '63)

Carrie joined them later.

Then Anna and Carrie lived together then after Anna died Carrie moved back in with Ella

====

WE could check out the kids = Andrew and Elizabeth McMahon's and see who married Miami/ Carroll Co, INI believe Andrew would have been 20 by the time of the 1880 census, so he could have married. (Carrie's obit said she had one niece(that's Kathryn-three nephews-one from Ella-William C. and the other two I don't know? Perhaps Elizabeth or possibly Andrew.  The it also does not mention that either Elizabeth or Andrew are alive. I doubted it as Elizabeth said on one of the census records that she had 6 children and only 3 were living.......Carrie's orbit only said she had one sister-Ella.......

Thanks for sharing, perhaps someone knows this family.

Hi

It's been a while and I did not forget you but I was tracking down that James McMahon family! I did it!

 Here's the scoop now:
 Anna Sellers McMahon died in Dayton,Ohio Nov.18,1922

 James and Anna had several children: We knew of Elizabeth;Ella; and Carrie, but there had been a boy, Andrew,  born in Peru, Miami Co, Ind. (where the girls were also born). Then there were a couple other infants that died.

 I never found out what happened to daughter Elizabeth-but she did not go with the family to Ohio after James died, like Anna ,Carried Ella Ella's 2 children(Kathryn and William C. Gradel and Ella's husband Charles Gradel did.

 (note in Anna's obit it said she has 3 surviving children.......Carrie, Ella and who? Elizabeth?-unless Elizabeth married and went elsewhere...

 James McMahon died in Delphi Sept 14,1885 at the age of 66. (Ind. Health Records)

 Who were Anna Sellers family? All I know is she was born in Michigan and her father was born in N/Y and mother in PA.

 Did any of the her related Sellers live in Adams County,ILL. in 1853ish? If so who and where and when? I am trying to figure if the families knew each other from Anna's mothers side- as James and brother his Joseph, were born in PA.

Somewhere they met.

JAC, thanks.

Your census show your JOSEPH MCMAHON 1814, but not our/your James McMahon 1819/1823/1885.

 

Can you prove any other kids of Elizabeth and ?

DID she have  an obit ? =

WE have a lot of Old papers with Obits

Many Genealogy /Libraries have these , but, you must go to these local areas to obtain.

 

I have NOT been able to prove ANNA SELLERS 1838/41 MI to a family  

SHE may be listed under another surname in census = esp if her mother remarried.

DEATH CERT may list parents =

 

I have had NO response from our SELLERS list, so evidently, they don't know WHO we are talking about!

 

BUT, that also may mean WE do Not know this SELLERS family and Need more info.

WE will link to IN and MI pages, in case someone sees us later down the line.

 

A copy of ANNA SELLERS/JAMES MCMAHON marriage could help. She does Not appear to be a Mrs,, but, info on same, may help?

 

AND Anna SELLERS may have a Middle name her parents used and she did Not.! very common.

I tried and checked these also. msh

 

THANKS for sharing SELLERS

JAC, thanks for keeping in touch.

 

WE need 1850/60 census on MCMAHON I have a letter so far from James to the CW Pension Board stating that he(James) lived one mile from Bro. Joseph when nephew James was born in 1853. No census finding thus far-Joseph moved sometime between 1850 and 1853 to ILL...... and SELLERS.

 don't see our SELLERS.

do you have MCMAHON'S ? =I have the 1850 census for Joseph McMahon and family, living with their mother,Elizabeth, in Salem,Ohio. Their father must have died and Joseph came to live with Mom.Joseph had a daughter named Martha, that was born in Ohio in abt 1849, but she's not with them in 1860-died? looking for her grave as I am their father.---Don't know where James is at this time yet....

 

JAMES MCMAHON 1823 PA//1885 CARROLL CO, IN should have an obit/ death cert =

contact Genealogy Society or Library. etc James is listed in the death index for Carroll Co. Ind. I have not as yet but will get to it soon,( I am gone quite a lot and sometimes I forget to get back to what I was doing) see about sending for a death certificate-if they have them for then........

 

 

 

ANNA SELLERS MCMAHON 1838/1922 Dayton, Mont Co, OH probably has obit/death cert =

contact same as above I did attempt to send for a death certificate and they wanted $53 total to send it! $23 was for FED-EX!! So now I have asked my researcher in Ohio to see if he can get it cheaper for me.

Hi Marie,
Well here I am AGAIN.....remember me ?
I found in the marriage records for Indiana that Ann(a) Mabb married a John SELLERS June 18 1859. Then she married James H. McMahon in 1861. This was the Anna Sellers we were looking for and could not find her family? It turned out that her maiden name was Mabb. Now if this couple is in you data base did they have(John and Ann) a son named Andrew? The reason for this question is that in the 1870 census James Sellers and Anna have a son named Andrew but he was born a year before James and Anna were married. Andrew is listed in the 1870 census but not in the 1880's
Jac

=============

OK- now I find Ann and husband JOHN SELLERS. He's from Scotland!
This is 1860 census and the marriage records for Allen Co. say they were married in June of 1859! Go figure......here Ann is listed as still single.

I think Ann and John had the one son Andrew. John must have died soon after........When she married McMahon he took on the boy as his own. They were Anna and McMahon were married when Andrew was one year old.

so this is the end of this mystery.
Thanks again Marie for all you help!

JAC, thanks. added your info.
It is quite possible that Andrew SELLERS 1860 IN is a SELLERS.
appreciate you sharing. will help others.
