My name is Kalin McDannell, from Bedford PA area, son of Lamont, and grandson of Kenneth M., whose father was Harry E. and his father was Blaisedell S. McDannell. I am trying to trace the McDannell name back to the first to come from Ireland/Scotland...doing clan research. I can get back to Aaron (son of William and Elizabeth McDonnell) with some confidence and William's father John who married Barbara Rice in Indiana PA area. I would really like to figure out when/who came over and from where and see if I can pick up the history in Europe to get a direct line of descendants. Does anyone have information on my family, with all the surname misspellings over time it is hard to tell if people are of actual relation...any help would be appreciated.
