  • Note: came with friend McDonough. 4 5
  • Occupation: "The principal part of his life was spent in school teaching." 6
  • Residence: SEP 1834 Perry, OH
  • Note: 1883 History says Samuel came to Perry County with his parents in September, 1834 but this may be incorrect. RJ. 6
  • Census: 18 JUN 1880 dwelling 162, Jackson Twp, Perry, OH
  • Note:
    A., 88, Widowed, Farmer, IRE, IRE, IRE
    Nancy, daughter, 40, single, PA, I, I
    Basil, son, 36, single, insane, OH, I, I

    ...whose daughter is Cathy and why is she with Grandpa?

    Father: MCCOURTNEY

    Marriage 1 Nancy GORDON b: 30 JAN 1797 in PA
    • Married: NOV 1821 in PA 7 8 9
    • Census: 1860 in dwelling 105, Jackson Twp, Perry, OH
    • Note:
      Arthur, 68, IRE
      Nancy, 563, PA
      Samuel, 27, PA
      Nancy, 23, PA
      Mary, 22, OH
      Gordon, Catherine, 9, OH
      McCourthey, Basil, 20, OH
      John, 35, OH

      Who is Catherine Gordon?
      And who are the elder McCourtneys listed last? I would assume Basil and John to be sons of Arthur Sr. except that Arthur Sr. was almost certainly not in Ohio when these two were born.
    • Note:
      Buried next to Arthur and Nancy are the two following:
      Mary C., d/o A. & M. A. d. 2 Feb 1879 aged 41y, 11m, 2d
      and
      John, s/o A. & A. M., 17 Jul 1822 - 4 Jan 1868.
      The age of Mary C. coincides with the birth date of the Mary shown with Arthur and Nancy in the 1860 census but the transcription makes it questionable. Likewise, the transcription of John's stone is also problematic.
    • Note: That John and William are sons of Arthur and Nancy is questionable. RJ.
