Title: McCaughey family PA to Ohio to Kansas
Post by: rmcneal103 on November 08, 2010, 07:31:49 AM
I am trying to find the parents of Elizabeth McCaughey, who married Malcom McNeal in Muskingum County on 17 December 1840. She was born in Pennsylvania on 9 March 1818. Between 1850 and 1860 she moved to Perry County from Muskingum.

I have a possible family connection via the 1870 Oxford, Johnson, Kansas census. It shows Elizabeth living next door to a John McCaughey who arrived in Kansas about the same time from Ohio. Then the names of their children etc the fact the Elizabeth married Malcom in Muskingum County as did brother John and his wife Chrisina Meyers h
Both John and Elizabeth were born in Pennsylvania and lived in Muskingum county Ohio and Oxford, Johnson, Kansas.

Anyway, this is definitely a work in progress any help any of your detective skills could provide would be welcome.
