Re: Mahns' in Spokane Wash

In Reply to: Re: Mahns' in Spokane Wash by Terry Carpenter of 48

Hi Terry,
I never did get in touch with your mother or mother in law. I was looking over your posting again and found this on the IGI records at www.familysearch.com. There is a father Paul Mahn who was born 1833 in Prussia (farmer) with wife Catharine who was born 1845 in Germany. He has a son Paul who was born in 1874 according to this census. The census is taken in Nokomis, Buena Vista Co IA but some of the children were born in IL. Could this be the right Mahn family from Spokane area of WA? I haven't found many Mahns with the spelling like that. Alot of Mains or McMahons.
My husbands family which I believe is yours too went like this............

I hope I haven't confused you too much.

Have you heard of John Mahn, son of Paul Mahn or a Montana connection to the Mahn family?
