In Reply to: Catherine Eagy m. Thomas McKanna (PA) by Elizabeth Howard of 57

Catherine's last name is correctly spelled as Egy. We have a letter written to her by her father, Jacob Egy. Catherine, (she also spelled her name as Katherine), was born on December 10, 1823 in Washington County, PA to Jacob and Polly (Iams)Egy. Census records show that the family lived near other relatives named Iams in PA. Catherine died on July 14, 1890 and is buried near Winchester, KS. Catherine married Thomas McKanna in 1843 and they had 11 children. One was our ancestor, Nancy Jane McKanna Cooper.
