I am trying to locate anyone who is aware of the McLanigan surname. Catherine A McLanigan married Leo Poorman 1909 in Pennsylvania. Margaret L McLanigan-Weaver-Bruininga (B 1914) and Walter Otterbein McLanigan (b-1912) children of John Henry McLanigan and Lillie Mae Shriver. This is the only information that I have. It appears that a good bit of information centers in the area of Palmyra Pennsylvania.

Ruthie, Some of the information I started with came from an 1897 Palmyra Pa Directory.
(Pennsylvania Dutch Family Website). It lists the McLanigan family on Locust St.
John McLanigan, Wife Louisa, Children, Harvey H., Lilian, John and Katie.
I also found a Mary McLanigan that arrived in N.Y. from Ireland, via Liverpool, on the ship Manhattan in 1859. I calculated her birth in about 1841. John's birth about 1860 which should make Mary his mother.Katie (Catherine) married Leo Poorman in 1919 and had 12 children (confirmed info)
John Henry McLanigan born about 1890, married Lillie Mae Schriver. Both died in an auto accident. Their children Walter Otterbein and Margaret L were teen-agers.
Walter was my father-in-law but never spoke of his family.
I have a lot more McLanigans and a lot more loose ends. Let me know if you want more.
