Notes for William Mccann, Sr.:
McCann Motto = "Virture grows under a Burden" Or "Virture Thrives under Oppression".
There was a James McCann in Whitely Twp., Greene Co. in 1810 c. This may be Laurence McCann's son James. Whitely Twp is due west of Greene Twp., and NW of Dunkard.There is the record of a James McCann marrying an Agnes Petty 9-5-1785 in Augusta Co., Va. This James may be the father of David b. 1775 who was the ferryman across the Mon in the Masontown area. It is very likely that this David is the father of William according to some tax assessment records. William m. a Martha Cline. The 1790 C. shows John McCann in Cumberland Township, Greene Co. with two male children under 16, and one female. It is on Mon River and across from German Twp. Around 1780 a John McCann's name and signature appeared on the petition to Cont. Congress for a new state to be called Westsylvania. This could be father of John McCann b. abt. 1790 who was m. to a Nancy and is on 1850 C. This John was a ferryman. (Misplaced source of this)
Greene Co. was created from Washington Co.
Date of birth about 1785. He probably moved from Pa. to Rush County, Indiana by 1830. It is not know whether he moved to Ill with the rest.
There was a William McCann on 1810 census for Green Co. Whitley Twp, Pa. This is probably not the same William. The census showed: 1 male 45 & up, 1 f. 26-45, 1 m. 16-26. l m. 10-16, l f. 1-16.
1820 census of Rush Co. Indiana does not show a William, however there is one in Greene Co., Whitley Township, Pa.
The 1830 Federal census for Rush Co. Indiana lists 3 households on the same pg.
Probate of the Estate of William ordered 11-24-1834; executed 12-14-1834; settled May 1836.
The 1840 Rush Co. census shows only a young William McCann.
The 1850 & 1860 census shows a son William born in PA. That William is 26-45 (which fits) and wife 26-45 (which fits) It has list of three boys, 2 less than 10 yr., and 1, 10-16. William should be 10 or 11, and Joe should be 9, (these fit as does l more boy. The census lists 2 girls less than 10 and 1girl 10-16. (all potentially fit).
The 1850 Rush Co. census has detailed Census. No older William listed, but son William is listed. His mother Mary age 61, born in Pa. is listed living with him.
In the 1860 census younger William & Joseph now in bond County, Illinois.
Daughter Lucretia was born about 1807 so presumably William and Mary married about 1805. Mary would have been 16.

Moody (S. of McGregor,Mclennan Co TX). He married Augusta Dorotha Ruther June 01, 1838 in Rush Co., Indiana, daughter of Ruther and FNU Ahrens.
Notes for Joseph W. McCann:
DOB & DOD from Joseph and Augusta's Bible. His D.O.B. on his headstone was July 17, 1815, and Bible was July 15, 1815. ? DOD same on both. He is buried in "old" Perry Cemetery located 2 miles NE of Moody, just south of McGregor, TX. It is now known as the Moody Cemetery. There were 5 graves together, Joseph, granddaughter Nora A., age 8 , 9-13-1883,(daughter of William Edward McCann and M.E); Thomas A. age 10; wife Augusta Dorothea; & son Oliver P.
Marriage in Their Bible was June 1, 1838.
1841 they were in Indiana according to children's dob, and in Illinois by 1843, according to children's births.
1854-1857 2 daughters were born and died in Illinois.
1860 they were on Bond Co., Illinois Census.
1880 Joseph and Augusta and son Oliver P. (35 yrs old) were listed on McLennan Co.,Texas Census. Listed age as 63 born PA, farmer. A.D. as 65 born in Hanover, and O.P. as 35, born in ILL. (Son William said his mother was born in Germany)
#222 ED 116 and also 249 ED 119. Oliver never married, and we have a (partially mouse eaten) journal he kept.
Joseph was listed on daughter Delilah Jane and husband James A. Hall's household in the same year. Joseph age was listed as 63 making dob as 1817 which is incorrect if his Bible and headstone are correct. ( I have his and Augusta's Bible)
Notes for Augusta Dorotha Ruther:
Family has letters written in German by Augusta.
Family history says Augusta family came from German on ship "York". Her Father's name was Ruther, her mother's maiden name was AHRENS. It could be the Ahrens that came on ship York or Ruther's or perhaps both. Family thought AHRENS.
DOB of 8-15-1813, & DOD of 7-22-1891 are from Her Bible, also written was age 77 years, 11mo. & 7 days. I have pictures of headstones in the old Perry Cemetery. The headstones were small new ones. (My family recently found Joseph and Augusta's Bible stored away, and were nice enough to give to me.)
1860 census showed her age as 44, making her dob 1816, which was evidently incorrect.
1880 census shows 1815, also incorrect, according to her own Bible.

1918, Delilah was living with her daughter Clara in Capitola-Claytonville Community in Fisher County when she died. Earlier she had lived with her son Alonzo. Date of her death, April 20, 1918, is from her parents Bible that some of the family filled in (probably my grandmother Nellie Hall Talley) and from her funeral home obit. (I have both the Bible and the Obit.) On April 22nd she was buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Waco. Address is 2145 South 5th, Lot #20, Blk #3. Her husband James Hall is buried there, as well as other members of the McCann family. The Oakwood Cemetery book had Delilah Jane with a "Name Unknown" buried next to her. There were originally 12 Hall spaces, but after 50 years of non-contact by family the unused reverted back to the City. Her headstone dates are incorrect, if you use her parents Bible and the funeral home obituary, which I have. Her granddaughter Marie had the headstone put up in year 2000. She was in her mid 80's, and the dates are wrong.
Her Birth registered in her parents Bible.

Notes for James A. Hall:
James was born in PA, per all Census. He listed PA as birth place of both his parents.
On 1850 PA census shows an 8 yr. old James A. Hall. Listed in census book in Alphabetical order, not with family. ?? This is correct age.
On 1860 Bond Co., ILL census it shows Mueller, Hall and Ingold in same household ?
In 1862 I found a 20 yr. old James A. Hall in Chester Bloom Post Office (What State , TN , see below,??)
Dec. 1862 a 20 yr old James A. Hall enlisted in Conf. Army and deserted from Co. C. 8th TN Infantry. The book said desertion date unknown". This found in Confederate Book of Desertions. The P.O. was listed as Chestnut Bloom. It is unknown if this is OUR James A. Hall, but fits.
On Internet - Bushnell, Ill Two James A. Hall's shown. One enlistment date as 10-7-1862 and one date as 8-1-1862, listed as private in 119 Inf. Regemont, ILL One Deserted on 3-29-1863. ??
March-5-1863 James & Delilah Married in Greenville, Bond Co., ILL.
Nov. 30, 1863 his first child, Clara was born in ILL per census.
1865 2nd child Alonzo born in ILL per census.
1866 -1867 He and Delilah Jane and two children and came to Texas from Illinois by covered wagon along with others, I do not know all, but know some of the McCann's came along. They settled in the Waco area. >From dates of Children's births He was in ILL for James Alonzo's birth in 1866, and in Texas for Rebecca's birth in 1867.
Stories from his granddaughter, Marie, are that he hid under a feather mattress on the way to TX anytime another traveler was seen. She said it was told that there were hard feelings coming from the Civil War, and that they came to TX before the war was ended, but according to births of their children they did not come until after 1866 when James Alonzo was born in ILL. Family also said he had always said he did not have any family, when anything was said about the supposedly mother and sister left in St. Louis. (I think from my research, that this was his step-mother and the sisters were step-sisters. I know his mother was supposed to be a Mueller, per letters in the family, and word of mouth from relatives. This wife of his father was not a Mueller, but St. Clair. I think his mother died when he was small, and he did not have siblings. See his father's notes)
Family says he went on cattle drives as well as being a house builder.
On 1870 Coryell Co., Census. P.O. Gatesville, Coryell Co., TX. Shows James age 28, b. Pa. , Laborer; Delilah 29, born Ind. Clara age 6, b. in ILL.; James Alonzo age 4, born ILL.; Rebecca age 3 born in TX.

1893 A letter from Rebecca Hall to James A. from St. Louis.
On Rebecca's letterhead was embossed "DeKalb". ??
1896, At age 54 James fell from the roof of a house he was building and died. He was living in McLennan Co. at the time.
I have picture of headstone, but the dates are incorrect if you use the family Bible. The dates for his wife are also incorrect using the Bible, her obit, and the courthouse death records. There was no headstone until the year 2000 when their elderly granddaughter Marie had this one put up. I do not know where the error was made.
Burial in Oakwood Cemetery in Waco, McLennan Co., Texas, Block 3, Lot 20. (see notes on Delilah Jane)
A loan note for a coffin and burial robe to Cunningham Hagen at McGregor, TX. signed by Albert and Lon (Alonzo) for $30.00 dated 8-26-1896. Record shows he died on 25th.
9-8-1900 (After James A. Jim had died ??) A letter from John Ahrens of Warren TX, (Tyler Co., I think) He mentions sister ANNIE and also mentions JOHN ST CLARE (Is this relative of Rebecca's?) He says he came to TX in 1859.
Wife D.J. rec'd letter from Ollie Schwenk 2928 Cass Ave. St. Louis, Mo. called herself D. Jane's neice. (Think this is Rebecca's dau)

Notes for Clara Edwardena Hall:
Clara was born in Ill per census, in Mo. per her sister Mary's bible. Some of the older family say Clara spent most of her youth in St. Louis, Mo. with her Grandfather John Albert Hall and his wife Rebecca. (I think this Rebecca was John's second wife, and not the mother of our James A. Hall. There were three girls in this family, which I am not sure were John's. There is a tin-type photo of just John and his granddaughter Clara when she was about 9 or 10 years old.
On 1880 TX Census shows she was born 1863 in Ill. Showed age as 17.
1901 A letter to Cousin Clara from Ivey, return address 1808 Bacon St., St. Louis, Mo.
Clara married John G. Pinkerton 7-16-1900. After his death she married Harmon Adkins 1-14-1906. Harmon was a brother to Mary Elizabeth Adkins( Dunlap) (Bonner).
