My gggrandfather was Alexander McDannel from Pennsylvania. He was born in 1818.He married Lovina Ritter who was also born in 1818. I have copies of the pages from their family Bible listing all their children. There were many.
They moved to Warren County, Ohio, where their daughter Mary Catherine married Emanuel Edwin Thomson when he returned from the Civil War.
Before long, they were all in Grand Island, Nebraska where many of the McDannels are buried.
