McMahan, Adams, Clark, Turley, Shemwell and Hagans who moved from KY to MO

I have been researching the McMahan's for over 30 years. I would like to connect the family members who came here from Ireland in the early 1700's.

Cooper County, MO.

moved to Missouri in 1810. Samuel was killed during the
War of 1812.

J.W. & Elzira Turley McMahan - Married and raised their
family in Cooper County, MO

William N. & Anna Shemwell McMahan - Married and all
of their children were born in Cooper Co., MO. They
moved to Howell County, MO in 1900. William died a
couple of years after moving to Howell Co., leaving
Anna to raise their young children. A widow, Anna
married a widower neighbor, Dock Greenbury Turner.

Charles E. and Julia Hagan McMahan - Charles
married Julia in Ozark Co., MO, but they lived
in Howell Co., MO. Julia died at age 21 giving
birth to her second child.

Nick and Maudena Turner McMahan - Lived and
raised their family in Howell County, MO.

McMahans from Pennsylvania, to Kentucky and through Missouri

I have been researching the McMahan family for over 30 years. Like many MC MAHAN researchers, I am unsure about the relationship of the MC MAHANS who came to this country from Ireland in the 1740's and settled in Pennsylvania and Virginia.

I descend from:

1. William MC MAHAN a Revolutionary War Soldiers married to Margaret Susan (?) and settled in Westmoreland, PA.

2. Thomas and Diana Adams MC MAHAN - migrated westward to Clark County, KY in the late 1700's. In 1810 - 1811 Thomas, Diana, their children and their families left Kentucky and moved to Cooper County, Missouri.

3. Samuel McMahan married Sarah Clark in Madison Co., KY before coming to Missouri. Samuel was killed by indians during the War of 1812.

4. A small boy when his father was killed, John W. MC MAHAN married Elzira Turley and remained in Cooper Co., MO all of his life.

5. William Nicholas MC MAHAN married Anna Shemwell of Pettis, Co., MO. They moved to Howell County, MO in 1900. William Nicholas died a couple years after moving to Howell Co. Anna Shemwell McMahan married a second time to a neighbor and widower, Dock Greenberry Turner.

6.Charles Nicholas MC MAHAN married a beautiful woman with bright red hair from Ozark County by the name of Julia Hagan. They had one son, Nick MC MAHAN. Julia died giving birth to a second child. Charles later married Fassie Christopher.
