Family History[]

I am the GGGGranddaughter of Samuel McMahan and Elizabeth Williamson. I believe Andrew's father is John McMahan who is listed in the McMahan Bible as deceased as of July 15th 1798 but I do not have any hard evidence of this.

Alternative Interpretation[]



(Taken from the GREEN COUNTY REVIEW…a quarterly publication of the GREEN COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, Greensburg, KY)

The Andrew McMahan Family bible was lent to us by Nellie Paxton Ennis (Mrs. Paul Ennis). The pages of this old bible are thin and brittle and dark with age. The front cover is missing as well as the number of front pages, including the title page. At the end of the New Testament is this inscription; "This Book was purchased, Anno Domini 1807 by Andrew McMahan." The Bible contains two family record sections. On the bottom of the page which immediately precedes the first family record is this inscription: "Mary Margaret Upton was born October the 12th 1848, this April 24, 1864, my present age is 15 years and six months and 12 days.
