I am new to the group, but have been documenting my McCrohans for several years now. I believe I might have a new lineage to contribute to the group that may help fill in some gaps.
My John was born in Cahirciveen in 1835 to an Owen and Mary McCrohan and migrated to the US ~1855. John lived in VA until 1865, before he married Mary Callaghan in Clarksburg, WV. John had 6 children, listed below. It was requested that John's obituary be reprinted in the Brooklyn and Chicago newspapers. His wife's obituary requested that Boston and Chicago reprint - I presume both of these reprint requests were due to family residing in these locations, perhaps yours? Most importantly, I am trying to locate the fate of John's son, James O. McCrohan, who appears in many of the census records, as well as the Pittsburgh directories; however, I am unable to determine if he had any children or was married. James' family would be the last to carry on the McCrohan name from within my immediate lineage. Hope this info helps and I look forward to connecting with some of you in the future.
