Descendants of Thomas Carnahan_ 20


From various accountings on the internet, my Carnahan line originated from Scotland. Several genealogy files begin the generations of Carnahan families with William Carnahan, born about 1455 in Aberdeen, Scotland. Numerous generations follow before the first Carnahans are reported in the state of Pennsylvania. The focal point of my particular ancestry seems to be with the family of James and Margaret Janny Carnahan. James was reportedly born 19 October 1692 in Legoniel (County Antrim), Ireland - he married Margaret Janny on 4 August 1718, in Dublin. According to the reported birth locations of the later children of James and Margaret, it appears the family arrived in the United States, and settled in the region of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, some time between 1720 and 1723. The known children of James and Margaret Janny Carnahan were: William (born about 1712, Ireland), Joseph (born 11 May 1715, Ireland), James Alexander (born 1 July 1719, Ireland), John (born 16 November 1720, Ireland), Mary Jane (born 1723, Cumberland County, PA), and Adam (born 1739, Cumberland County, PA). I do not know which James Carnahan son was the ancestor to my line. Many of the Carnahan branches settled in the Pennsylvania counties of Allegheny and Westmoreland.  The earliest signs I have of my direct Carnahan branch begin in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania.

The first Carnahan of my ancestry which is found in these research records is my fifth great-grandfather, Thomas, who is first listed in the 1820 Armstrong County, PA census report[1]. Thanks to the information provided by Thelma Kifer, wife of 4th cousin, Jeffrey Kifer, many blank spots in my data were filled.

My fourth great-grandfather, James Carnahan, is reported by Thelma Kifer to have been born in Crawford County, PA around 1806. Future wife of James, Mary (Polly) Fitz-Randolph, and her family were from the same county. James and Mary "Randolph" were married around 1823, in Armstrong County, PA - Mary was the daughter of William and Mary Smith Fitz-Randolph.

I have collected Watterson data along the way in my research because of the reported marriage of my third great-grandfather, Taylor Carnahan to Barbara Watterson around 1854 in Clarion County, PA.  Research is abundant on the Watterson line but an actual connection to Barbara Watterson is eluding me.

Good Morning,

Glad that those obits helped. No, I haven't found much out on Mary Ann Walls.  Someone in a genealogy club found a Maggie Walls (her daughter)  in orphan court  Guardian 1858-1872 given to Fredrick Wahl, father Peter Wall. This information is from Wayne Wall of Butler, PA.  That is quoted word for word.  I'm not sure what is meant but neither she nor I have any more.  She also mentioned a Wall Reunion being held last summer (July 20)  in Belnap, PA. Maybe that will sent you in some direction.   There is nothing about Barbara Waterson.  If I come across anything. I'll be in touch.

Watterson Lore

Posted by Ron DeWitt on September 7, 2001

Some time ago there was a story about the siblings of James Watterson on a bulletin board like this one. It seems that on 4 Apr 1756 the nine year old James, his five year old sister Susannah and an infant sibling were proceeding to home when they were told by a friendly Indian not to go home because some bad Indians were attacking the children's parents. According to the testimony as handed down by Susannah Watterson, she remembered that upon being told this her brother ran back to his parents and she assumed he was massacred with them. She, however, grabbed her infant brother and ran to a neighbor. After the incident, she was "farmed out". We have no further knowledge of what happened to the infant brother. The name "James Watterson" was passed on as given names to a number of her descendants: James Watterson Showalter; James Watterson Jackson, etc. Evelyn (Abraham) Benson, a granddaughter of Elizabeth (Showalter) Jackson, and a g granddaughter of Susannah was a historian, and discovered the report made of the massacre on April 4, 1756, at the Pennsylvania Archives in Philadelphia in which John and Catherine Watterson are listed as victims, but not the 9-year-old boy. According to the date of the massacre, James would have been born ca. 1747, and if she were 5, she would have been born ca. 1751. Susannah married Ulrich Showalter ca. 1769. According to her tombstone in the Showalter section of the I.O.O.F. Cemetery, Smithfield, PA she died July 30, 1815. Apparently, the descendants of both James and Susannah Watterson were unaware of the other survival until recently.

Obituaries Records

Mary A. Walls Carnahan (1832 – 1906)

At a little past high noon Thursday, February 28, 1906, after a long and distressing illness, Mrs. Mary A. Carnahan, wife of Taylor Carnahan, was called to her reward at the advanced age of 73 years, 4 months and 22 days.  She leaves a husband, a daughter and a son, besides a large circle of friends and relatives, to mourn her loss.  Mrs. Carnahan has been a member of the Methodist church for more than 40 years, and died in the triumphs of a Christian’s faith and hope.  A few evenings before she died she invited a company of friends and neighbors in to hold a prayer meeting at her home.  After singing and praying with her for more than an hour she bade each one good-night, and expressed her perfect confidence in her Savior and a readiness to go to him when he called.  She was a faithful wife, a loving mother and a kind neighbor, but a great sufferer, having been afflicted with asthma for many years.  We cannot call her back, but we can go to her.

Wattersonville Cemetery, Armstrong Co, PA (Watterson)

THE WATTERSONVILLE CEMETERY, although not in Brady's Bend Township, lies just a few miles downriver from the town of East Brady, on the Armstrong County side of the  Allegheny River. Ann M. Brooks of Syracuse, New York wrote to us in 1999 when she came into  possession of a listing of the cemetery.  She graciously shared it with us, and we reproduce  her letter here. We did not take any pictures, but you may visit the cemetery by following  Route 268 toward Kittanning, turning left just before Cowansville, where a sign directs you  to Sherrett and to Lock 9 and the power station.

This is a scenic, winding road, and unless  you have traveled it before, you will fear that you have lost your way several times before  arriving at the cemetery. However, take heart and follow the marina signs.  You will also see a sign for the Wattersonville Methodist Church, where the cemetery is located.  Services  are still held in this church, and the cemetery is tended and accessible.  Most of the dates  are from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s. We thank Ms. Brooks for her information and hope it is helpful.

Following is a letter and the interment listing from Ms. Brooks dated 21 May  1999.  She received a copy of the listing from Annabelle Shetler and Mildred Thomas  dated July 1986.

[1] I have seen a record on an unnamed child born to William and Grizelda Carnaghan in October 1785 – this could possibly be Thomas or a sibling to Thomas but no verified connection is made at this time. In the 1810 and 1820 census indexes there is a William Carnahan listed in Madison (Armstrong County), PA.

[2] William Fitz-Randolph's reported death date is 1855 in New Athens, PA; his wife's reported death date is 1852. His daughter, Mary Fitz-Randolph, married James Carnahan about 1823. James and Mary gave birth to my third great-grandfather, Taylor, in 1834.

[3] Nancy Waterson enumerated with William (age 48) amd Susan (age 47) Bruner family

[4] Taylor Carnahan (Farmer) reported as Carnahan Taylor in the 1870 census report.

[5] enum. with Joseph Harrigan family

[6] enum. with Benjamin Burns family

[7] Reported as Taylor, Carnahan in the 1870 census.  Taylor or his parents, James and Mary Randolph Carnahan could not be located in the 1860 census.

[8] Barbara Watterson Carnahan reportedly died in 1875 – documentation still needs to be located.  There are longstanding Watterson families in the region but a connection has not yet been made to who Barbara’s parents were.  There is also an Irish Watterson family that was living in the area at the time that Barbara could be related to.

[9] Ran across this Carnahan family while doing other research – family connection not known

[10] Mary Walls Carnahan reported two living children of 2 in this census (this would be Maggie Walls b. 1850, Edward Carnahan b. 1875).  Some time around 1853 Taylor Carnahan was married to his first wife, Barbara – she and Taylor are in the 1870 Census.  By 1880, his wife was Mary A. Carnahan. According to the 1887 Clarion County, Pennsylvania marriage application of my great-great-grandparents, Wilson Mitchell and Minnie Carnahan, the parents of Minnie B. Carnahan were Taylor and Mary A. Carnahan – I believe Mary A. is Minnie’s step-mother. In the 1880 Clarion County census record, Taylor and Mary A. Carnahan reported a step-daughter named Maggie Walls living in their household. – follow-on information from internet sources supports the fact that Taylor’s second wife was Mary A. Walls (1832 – 1906).  The maiden name of Minnie's mother is reported to be Watterson according to Wilson Mitchell (he was the informant on Minnie's death certificate).  According to the information provided by Thelma Kifer, Taylor was in fact married to Barbara Waterson first (she died around 1875) - later, Taylor married Mary A. Walls. I still need to acquire records that would help prove this information.  I could find no sign of Taylor and Mary A. Carnahan after the 1900 census. I have the death certificate of Taylor Carnahan reporting his death as 1 November 1911, in Madison Township.  On 22 Oct 1887, Minnie Carnahan married Wilson Mitchell in Clarion County, PA. Wilson was the son of John and Frances Kewley Mitchell of Egremont, England. Wilson arrived in the United States in 1886 at the age of 21.  Around 1918, Minnie Carnahan Mitchell and her husband Wilson relocated to Youngstown, Ohio. In 1927, Minnie Mitchell died suddenly - she reportedly keeled over at the dinner table from heart failure. Wilson died several years later in 1940 Youngstown, Ohio. Wilson and Minnie Mitchell were both transported to Rimersburg, PA, for burial.

[11] enumerated with Ellen E. Porter (Partner)

[12] Widow of James Watterson

[13] Information is a compilation of information from numerous internet sources – it is intended as a step off point for further research and has not been collaborated or proven with source documentation at this time.

[14] On March 18, 1890, Wilson and Minnie Carnahan Mitchell gave birth to my great-grandfather, Taylor Roy Mitchell in Clarion County, PA.  Taylor married Gertrude Mohney on November 19, 1915. Gertrude was the daughter of James B. and Mary Emigh Mohney. Taylor and Gertrude had four children.
