I do not have much information on the Shanor family because my husband descends from Joseph Beighlea's first wife, Catherine. Much of the information that I have accumulated comes from a Shanor tree posted by Lucille Cassatt. Terry Erb's Beighley tree posted online is also superb.

Other information comes from a large Beighley Family Tree Poster that is based upon work done by William B. Rodenbaugh. This tree contains names not found in his book "Acorns at Colonial Oaks, Beighley 1737 - 1934." A copy of the tree is in the Heritage Room of the Franklin Library, Franklin, Venango County, PA.

Below is Abraham. There are other family ties with Abraham's brothers--Daniel and Henry.
