Marriage license and record, James Patton to Sarah E. McFann, Lawrence County, OH, vol 14, pg 366.
Marriage license and record, James Fleming to Ada McFann, Lawrence County, OH, vol 16, pg 135. I suspect that his is A. J.'s daughter Ada, although she would have to have been born 1876 or earlier.

1. Andrew J. McFann's death certificate idenifies his parents as David McFann and Catherine Scott. A copy of the record was obtained by Terry Turley.
2. Dates of birth and death for Andrew J. McFann, his wife, and their son, David, were taken from their death certificates. I thank Terry Terry Turley for extracting the information for me. Dates of birth for all of the children except Amaziah were given on the 1897 Questionaire in A. J. McFann's pension file. The questionaire gives David's year of birth as 1857. Cyrus may be the same person as Amaziah, since Cyrus does not appear in any of the census records and Amaziah appears between Jacob and William in age.
3. According to the 1900 census, Margaret McFann had 9 children, 7 of whom were still living. So one child is missing from the above list.
