My great great great grandfather John McGeehan served in Civil War (88th PaVols) and from those records I have been able to determine his birth (8-Dec-1820 in New York) and death (17-Nov-1896)dates. He was md. to Anne Willits (ca 1825 in New Jersey-ca 1896?) and they had at least 6 children.

In 1850 census, the family was in Exeter Twp., Luzerne Co., Pa. Children:
-Allen Hugh McGeehan (1845-1908) md. (1)Laura Donley; md. (2) Mary Jennings
-Margaret (Maggie) McGeehan (1847-?) md. Ziba Wagner
-Martha McGeehan (my gr-gr) (1848-1903) md. (1)Hoyt Gilbert; md. (2)John Felts
-Frances C. McGeehin (ca 1851-?)
-Julius McGeehan (ca 1854-?)
-Emma J. McGeehan (ca 1858-?)

Anyone have info on this family or descendants?
