Searching for info on John MECUM (MECOM), b. 1763 NJ, d. 1852 Muncy, Lycoming Co., married Margaret - children: David, Jonathan, John, George W., Mary, Elizabeth, Rachel, Catherine, Margaret, Susana, + one unknown.

David MECUM (MECOM) b. 1811 in Williamsport was my gggrandfather and was married to 1. Catherine BAKER and 2. Ann RENN.

1850 Will of John RENN of Franklin Twp, Lycoming Co. mentions his daughter Ann RENN and husband David MECUM as being separated.

Hi Gwen, I'm going to be brief for now. Anna Renn who married David Mecum and lived in Franklin Twp., Lycoming Co., PA is the sister of Hannah Renn Brittain who is my great, great grandmother. So if you're a descendant of Anna and David's, then we're cousins. Small world.

Debbie:

David MECUM was married twice that I know of, and I am not sure what (if any) children he had with Anne RENN - I have been trying to determine if Anne - or his first wife Catherine BAKER - was my gggrandmother....????? Do you have any info on Anne? Somewhere I have the Will of her father....would be interested in what you have on the family.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Please email me personally so that we can continue this discussion at: Gwen@AmericanServiceCo.com

Cuzzin? Gwen

Debbie, I see you believe Anna & Hannah Renn were sisters, do you know then who their parents were ? I am searching for Renns and connections to them in the Lycoming area. Any help is greatly appreciated, Judy

1850 Will of John RENN of Franklin Twp, Lycoming Co. mentions his daughter Ann RENN and husband David MECUM as being separated.

Somewhere I have a copy of John Renn's Will, but at least you have her father's name. If you are interested I can try to locate the copy.

Gwen, thank-you for your response ! I would be very grateful for a copy of John Renn's will. I descend from William Renn b. abt. 1812 Pa. I do think his father may have been John and then the Frederick listed in the 1830 & 1840 census was probably John's brother. Have you been able to track John any further back than this ? This is all great, I know this is my line and have been searching for years trying to fit it all together, Thank-you so very much , any help is greatly appreciated, Judy

Debbie, Thank-you so much ! I do believe these are my Renn ancestors and I have been working a long time trying to place William into either John's or Frederick's family. Do you know whether or not John & Frederick brothers ? or anything more beyond them ? This is great, anything you care to share is appreciated, Thanks again for your response, Judy
