Surname McMahan in Oklahoma
Posted by: Bea McMahan Chadburn Date: February 13, 1998 at 21:35:12
  of 32087

I am looking for my great-grandfather, Harrison or Harry McMahan.
I have a letter from him and his 2nd wife, from Tecumseh, OK
dated 1913.
Supposedly Harry McMahan went to OK in 1880-1890's, from Sevier
County, Tennessee. He was born in 1838. My grandfather, John
Wilson McMahan was born in 1874. Harry's first wife, (and John's
mother) died in 1877. At that time, TB was ravageing Sevier Co.
Harry went west to escape the disease, along with many of his
neighbors. He may have married a Barnes, either in TN or OK.
Thanks in advance for any help!!!
