Notes and Credits:

1. Jodie Raymond sent me photocopies of the census records, vital records, and obituaries; she also sent family group sheets for the families of Emily McFann and Luella Day. I thank Jodie for sharing this information with me.

2. Emily McFann is assumed to be the daughter of David McFann Sr (b. 1772) because he is the most likely father in the vicinity of Lawrence and Scioto Counties. See note 1 on David McFann's Family Page. Emily is young enough that she could be the daughter of David's sons David Jr (b. 1806) or William (b. 1804). But as far as we know, David Jr was not married until 1829 and William was never married.

3. Emily's date of birth is derived from her date of death and age at death as reported in the Record of Deaths (cited above). Date of birth for Allen M. Day is from the 1900 census; his date of death is from his graves registration card. Dates of birth and death for John W. Day are from the Wheelersburg Cemetery inscriptions. Date of birth for Luella Day appears to be 27 January in the index of births cited above and is 29 January on her death certificate. Jodie Raymond gives her date of birth as 28 January (from family sources, I assume).

4. Descendants of Emily McFann include Jodie Raymond.
