INDEX

[23552] In the early 1820s John W. McConnell came to Ross Twp, Greene County, OH with his brother, William McConnell. William had purchased 271 acres of land in 1819 near the residence of Robert McConnell, their uncle. However, they probably did not leave for Ohio until after the spring of 1820 since they appear to been counted in the 1820 census record with their mother, Ellis "Elly" (Moore) McConnell. This record is indexed as "Alias" McConnell which is how the census person apparently interpreted the name "Ellis." Their uncle, Robert McConnell, died on June 28, 1822 leaving behind a wife and seven young children. William McConnell was the appraiser for Robert McConnell's estate and William married a McConnell cousin, Elizabeth, while residing in Ross Twp on August 30, 1823.

John W. McConnell's first son, Jacob McConnell, was born about 1825. The exact date is unknown but the day was September 10. The 1830 census shows a son 5-9 years old. John's first wife probably died around 1827 because on August 17, 1829 John W. McConnell married, Eliza Ann Barber, a daughter of David Barber and Sarah McClanahan, in Greene County, Ohio. John's name on the marriage record reads "John W. McConnell" and that name with the "W" in the middle initial shows up in court documents in Shelby County, Illinois later on.

David Barber, the father-in-law was one of the sons of William Barber. The Barber family is among those families that moved from Elizabeth New Jersey to Elizabeth Twp, Allegheny Co., PA around 1766.

I have three census records for John W. McConnell.

In the 1830 Census he was at Ross Twp, Greene Co., OH.
1 M 30-39 (John W.), 1 M 5-9 (Jacob).
1 F 30-39 (Eliza Ann).

On March 18, 1837 he purchased 42.43 acres at Twp 2-S, Range 9-W, Section 18, 2nd Prime Meridian.
On March 20, 1837 he purchased 84.86 acres at Twp 2-S, Range 9-W, Section 18, 2nd Prime Meridian.
David Barber, John's wife's brother, purchased land in the same township a year later and William McConnell, John's brother, also purchased land nearby.

1840 Census, Columbia Twp, Gibson Co., IN
1 M 40-49 (John W.), 1 M 15-19 (Jacob), 1 M 0-5 (William M.) The M. for William may have been for McLanahan, the maiden name of Eliza Ann (Barber) McConnell's mother.
1 F 40-49 (Eliza A.), 2 F 20-29, 1 F 30-39 (These last three are Elizabeth's sisters who had been living with Sarah McClellan in 1830).

Eliza Ann (Barber) McConnell died in February 1842 and was buried in the Lawrence Cem in Centre Township, Gibson County, Indiana.

In the 1850 census John W. McConnell was at Columbia Twp, Gibson Co., IN, with his son William M., age 15. The census showed that John W. was born in 1799 in Pennsylvania and was a farmer. He was living in the home of Joseph (b. 1825, Indiana) and Lucy Kendall (b. 1825, Indiana)l. He had $800 in personal assets and no real estate. He apparently conserved this $800 since he had a little more than this when he died.

William M. McConnell, his son, died in August 1855 and was buried beside William's mother, Eliza Ann in the Lawrence Cemetery in Gibson County, Indiana.

On September 17, 1855 John W. McConnell, purchased 80 acres of federal land for $200 at Cold Spring Township, Shelby Co. The legal description for the two pieces of land is SWNW and NWSW Section 29, Township 10 N, Range 2 E, Meridian 3. It is land by the junction of Stoney Creek and Beck's Creek. This land, along with an additional 40 acres purchased by Boseal McConnell on 11/26/1879 stayed in the McConnell family for 72 years. The land was sold after the death of Thomas W. McConnell, Jacob McConnell's son, who died in 1927.

We know the father of Jacob McConnell purchased the land and not the younger second cousin namedJohn/Jonathan McConnell because both Jacob and John/Jonathan McConnell are listed in the 1860 census with zero assets and no real estate. John W. McConnell does not appear in the 1860 census, but much of that census has water damage. It is also likely that he had moved away by 1860.

On April 10,1857 Jacob McConnell, along with a cousin or possibly half brother named Jonathan McConnell, and John Smith, were charged with "gaming" in Shelby Co., Illinois. Gaming was described as playing at cards for money. On October 7, 1857, for the gaming indictment, John W. McConnell, Wesley King and Moses Spurgeon posted a bond. Wesley King lived immediately next to Jonathan McConnell in the 1860 census (he was probably his employer). John W. McConnell posted bail for Jacob. Moses Spurgeon was probably linked to John Smith.

In the Shelby County, OH 1860 census, listed near Jacob McConnell, there is a "Jno" McConnell, listed as born in 1827, with his wife Mary Jane (Haney) McConnell and his children Samuel, Malona and Jacob R. They may have been half brothers. They chose to live close together, Jonathan named a son Jacob, and they were arrested together. Per Civil War enlistment documents, he said he was born in Greene County, PA. It is possible he meant Greene County, OH.

Because the the lead to Greene County, Pennsylvania, I found a descendant of John McConnell (d. after 1830), who lived in Greene County, Pennsylvania. He was one of the sons of Robert McConnell (d. 1813) and Nancy "Agnes" Boyd. A DNA comparison shows that my (Robert McConnell's) DNA matches the John McConnell descendant exactly in 64 out of 67 markers-- the closest match I have found except for another match which was with my third cousin Jerry Leverett McConnell. I also compared DNA with another descendant of Robert McConnell (d. 1813), through Robert's son James McConnell (d. 1829 in Greene Co., OH). This was a reasonably close match as well, but not as close as the one through a descendant of John McConnell. The amount of closeness varies with the sample, so they could be equally close but with more differences due to random events.

On April 10, 1858 John W. McConnell and Samuel Hall borrowed $168 from Hardy Warren. On March 19, 1859 a suit by Hardy Warren was filed for not paying the money back and John W. McConnell was served with a subpoena on April 7, 1859. On August 26, 1859 Jacob McConnell and John Smith were ordered to appear before the court in October of 1859. However, there was no mention of John W. McConnell ever appearing. For the lawsuit with Hardy Warren, there is an order in the file recorded September 15, 1859 that says "Sci Fa Issue." I do not know what was meant by "Sci Fa Issue" but possibly this was settled out of court, or possibly the defendent could not be located for some reason. There were assets, John W. McConnell owned land in his name, that could have been claimed but they were not.

Possibly from a desire to return to his childhood home in Pennsylvania and visit relatives, John W. McConnell returned to the Elizabeth Twp, Allegheny Co., PA area around 1860. He must have felt young for his age (he was about 62 in 1861) because he volunteered to fight in the Civil War with the 100th Pennsylvania Infantry. This regiment, with recruits mostly from Washington County, Pennsylvania, is famous for having a lot of Scotch-Irish Covenanters and people descended from the Puritans in the English Revolution who were called "roundheads." The Find-a-grave record connected with his tombstone in Arlington Cemetery shows that he enlisted in the Civil War on September 5, 1861 as a Private in Company M, the 100th Pennsylvania Infantry. This company was organized at that time in Pittsburgh, so if he joined when the company was first organized, this would be correct. Per Records and Profiles of Civil War Soldiers available on Ancestry.com, that record shows he enlisted in Westmoreland County on March 29, 1864. This date seems more correct because a person in his mid 60s probably would not have survived three years of war because this unit saw a lot of action and it was part of Sherman's March to the Sea as well as battles in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Viriginia, South Carolina and near Washington D.C.. This company had a lot of casualties from both wounds and illness. What is consistently documented is that John W. McConnell died of wounds in Washington D.C. on May 31, 1864 and he is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Two years later, two of his sisters, the only surviving children of Adam McConnell and Elly Moore, Ann (McConnell) Irwin and Jane (McConnell) Wilson, claimed his assets in court on the basis that they were John W. McConnell's only surviving heirs.

The following is a transcript of the court proceedings at Allegheny Co., PA Orphans Court Docket, Volume 21, Page 220. The date and location of death, Washington D.C., May 31, 1864, are in the court records.
"John W. McConnell dec'd. First and final account of J. H. Maffet Administrator of John W. McConnell deceased. Balance in hands of accountant $862.83. June 4, 1866 Confirmed nisi. By the Court."

The first soldier buried in Arlington National Cemetery was William Henry Christman, buried May 13, 1864 in Section 27. John W. McConnell was buried in Section 27 on May 31, 1864, grave number 775.

"August 4, 1866 Auditors Report presented in open court and approved absolutely in persuana of agreement of counsel and the adm ordered and directed to pay over the funds in his hands in accordance to the foregoing distribution:
Distribution for auditors report:"
Mrs. Jane Wilson $400
Mrs. Ann Irwin $400
Cost of audit 52.83
Mafftit [unreadable] 10.00 (probably court costs)

"August 27, 1866 of W. G. Harkomes [auditor], Moffett [unreadable, probably the name of the judge], Mrs. Ann Irwin, and Mrs. Jane Wilson, her attorney Finley D. Irwin filed, ex due Power of Attorney Mrs. Jane Wilson. J.D. anun filed."

There were additional letters of administration in 1882 with a W.W. Irwin administrator. This is probably William Willison Irwin, a son of Ann (McConnell) Irwin. I don't know why these were necessary, the documents are not available online, so I haven't seen them. From the estate index they appear to have been Letters of Administration that were done to finally close John W. McConnell's estate.

John W. McConnell (d. 1866) may not have told anyone in Allegheny County, PA that he had a son in Shelby County, Illinois, so court proceedings were probably based on what John McConnell's siblings believed true. He may have preferred to keep personal matters to himself and did not tell others about his son in Illinois and he apparently did not leave a will. The property at Cold Springs Twp, Shelby County, Illinois stayed in John W. McConnell's name for 72 years after it was purchased in 1855, probably because they could not change the title to the land without knowing and explaining what happened to John W. McConnell. It was finally sold by John W. McConnell's great grandson, Everett Jacob McConnell, after the death of his father, Thomas W. McConnell in 1927. By that time title could be claimed simply by having lived on the land for a long time. Since John W. McConnell's son, Jacob McConnell, had ten healthy children and all of those children married and raised large families, John W. McConnell, who died intestate apparently without issue, has hundreds of descendants by now.
