In the Pittsburgh city directory for 1819 there is a Margaret McFann listed on the west side of Smithfield Street between Virgin alley and Sixth Street. (Virgin alley is now Oliver Street and Sixth Street is now Sixth Avenue.) Besides the Thomas McFann in the 1815 directory who I posted about previously, this appears to be the only McFann appearing in the Pittsburgh directories in the early 1800's. In the 1820 census for Pittsburgh there is a "Widdow" McFann living next to a John Chambers who I believe to be my ancestor. In the 1860 census John Chambers and his wife Martha have a Letitia McFann living with them who is listed as 60 years old. I am guessing that Letitia is Martha's sister and that Thomas and Margaret were their parents. Martha and Letitia were both born in Ireland according to the 1860 census.
