In Reply to: Mc Mackin from Ohio by BEVERLY ANTHONY of 113

John McMackin born 8 Jul 1797, Pennsylvania Died Painville Village, Lake County, Ohio, 22 Aug 1867.

The family Bible of his son Levi listed his date of death as 22, August 1867 however the head stone recorded the date August 23, 1867 A survey done of the cemetery by the DAR in 1925 recorded incriptions on the headstones.

The 1850 Census for Lake County, Ohio, Records
John Makin age 53 Male Farmer born PA. and
Beda, age 53, Female, born NY., and two Children Rebecca, age 20, female, Nancy, age 17, female, both born in Ohio.

In earlier census reports, Levi Mackin and his father John Mackin recorded their names as McMackin however, the sons of Levi Mackin chose not to continue the use of the Mc in the family name, even Levi Mackin towards the end of his life recorded his name as Mackin.

I have been trying to find the link, further back than John Mackin, the family Bible that Betsy Fuller Mackin had, had a listing that John Mackin was born in Pennsylvania. The 1850 Census confirms that information.

The obituary of Levi M. Mackin states that the parents to Levi, John and Beda McMackin had come from New York State.

Since John was reported to be born in PA.
I searched immigration records from Philadelphia during the time prior to John McMackin's birth but haven't found any McMackin's that immigrated through Philadelphia prior to his birthday.

A note in his sons family bible says he came to Madison Ohio in 1818 he resided there until 1853 when he moved to Painsville Village, Ohio and lived there until he died.

Married Beda Ellis, born 20 May 1798, Died 27 Nov 1865 Madison Town Ohio.
