Wallahan Family Genealogy Forum
To all of you that are researching the Wallihans of various spellings living in Columbiana Co. Ohio in the early 1800's, I have lots of information. Some of it very reliable and some still unverified. I have all of the Rogers-Wallihan children and the Wallihan- Rogers children and decendents. Alexander Rogers(son of George Augustus Rogers and Alice) married Catherine Wollenham and Samuel Wallihan married Nancy(anne) Rogers, dau. of George Augustus Rogers. These families moved from Fayette Co. Pa about 1802. The Rogers received a land grant, Geo. Aug. was a soldier with Washington from the Fed. Government. The original home in Columbiana Co. was still standing in the 1980's. I don't know if it still is or not.
My Gr. Gr. grandfather was Pierce Wallihan, son of Samuel and Nancy Rogers Wallihan. I have not been able to find the father of Samuel Wallihan or the origin of the family but I am thinking that it is Ireland and possible Kilkenny Co. but not sure. I have found a Pierce Wallihan (various spellings) in Cumberland Co. Pa from 1776 to 1783 on the Tax records. There are military records from 1778 to 1781 in Guilford twp. in Cumberland Co. Then next I find him in Bullskin twp, Fayette County, Pa. as Pears Wallahan
There are lots of mysteries but lots of known things too. I got stuck with finding the immigrating ancestor. Would love to know who, where and when!!! Can be of help.
I am willing to be of help. I don't have lots of time to spend on the genealogy but I do love to do it.
