Family of Robert SHAWHAN (4) & Mary WILLIAMS

11. Jane SHAWHAN (Robert4, Daniel3, Daniel2, Darby1).23 Jane was born in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, on November 19, 1791. Jane died in Pennsylvania on March 19, 1877; she was 85.24
Jane and Nathaniel were married at the home of her father, Robert Shawhan.
On January 1, 1812 Jane married Nathaniel Plummer PEARSON25, son of Jesse PEARSON (August 22, 1762-June 11, 1814) & Mehitable PLUMMER (March 19, 1771-), in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Nathaniel Plummer was born in Newburyport, Essex County, MA, on October 6, 1788. Nathaniel Plummer died in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky, on September 19, 1869; he was 80.
Nathaniel served during the War of 1812 as an Ensign in the "Hunting Shirt Company", under Captain James Turbett, 1st Regt., PA Militia, Allegheny County. After the War he managed his father's flour mill in Allegheny County. Key sources are his 1851 request for bounty land and his widow's 1873 pension application based on his service during the War of 1812. The Pittsburgh Gazette of Nov. 8, 1814 listed Nathaniel as the administrator of his father Jesse's will. From file of Merry Anne Pierson: " Still living with Hehetable on 1820 Census. Shows up on 1830 census as Nathaniel Piercon. Children listed are those enumerated with him on the 1830 census. No wife listed. These could be siblings. From his pension documents and Samuel Walker Pearson's letter included with the documents. Lived in Birmingham, near Pittsburgh until spring of 1869, went to Louisville, KY to be near eldest daughter and a son in glass business; died there but was returned to Allegheny Co. for burial."

Nathaniel P. Pearson is listed yearly as a tavern licesnsee from 1821-1831.
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,Somerset County.

Personally appeared before the subscriber, one ofthe Justices o f the Peace in and for said county, Samuel W. Pearson a resident now of Buckstown in said Cou nty, and well known to the subscriber who being fuly affirmed according to law, deposeth and saith (myself having reduced the statement to wr iting in his own language) as follows. viz; I was born August 25th 1806 in St. Clair Township, Allegheny County, Penna, about thre e miles distant from Pittsburgh. My father and mother, Jesse and Mehitable Pearson and also m y oldest brother Nathaniel Plummer and my eldest sister Sarah were born in or near Newburypor t , Massachusetts, and removed to Alleghe ny Co., Penna in 1790 or 1791. My eldest brother, Nathaniel P. born Oct. 6, 1788, and Jane Sh awhan, born Nov 19th 1791 were married at the house of her father Robert Shawhan (living abou t 1 mile distant from my father's) on the 2nd day of Jany 1812. I was not present at the wedd ing, nor do I remember who performed the ceremony, but presume it was a Baptist Minister in t he vicinity, but whether it was he or one of the two other clergymen whom I knew for some yea rs afterwards, or a Justice of the Peace, I am satisfied all of them have been in their grave s for many years. I well remember the wedding party coming to my father's on the next day after the wedding to enjoy or participate in what was styled the "infair" accordin g to the custom of that day. I well remember the excitement produced by the news of the War o f 1812. My two elder brothers, Nathaniel P. and Ebenezer born Jun 22nd 1792 volunteered for t hree months I think and were mustered into a company called the Hunting Shirt Rifle Co. comma nded by Captain Torbett. My mother & sisters filled a pretty large contract of making Linen J ackets and knapsacks for the Co. remember the departure of the Co. for the seat of war. The y passed my grandfathers house, and being at school a few rods distant, school was dismissed , and with the other scholars I ran and climbed upon a board fence to see the soldiers pass . The fence broke down and I received a sprain of my left wrist which crippled me for a lon g time, the effects of which I felt for years. I remember when my brother Nathaniel returne d home on furlough to see his wife and first child a daughter born during his absence, Nov 14 , 1812. He returned with a fellow soldier named Cochran, who, entering the house after dark b ehind my brother, was supposed by my mother to be my brother Ebenezer, and she saluted both w ith kisses, causing a hearty laugh. I had in my possession, until last August (when I returne d it to my brother's widow at New Albany Inda ) the original furlough granted to m y brother Nathaniel, designating him as Ensign, and dated in Nov 1812. I have in my possessio n, though not before me at present (they being deposited with other papers relative to my bro thers estate in my Bankers safe in Somerset fifteen miles distant) two letters written by m y brother Nathaniel, one, if not both, directed to my father, dated in Sept and Nov 1812, fro m which it appears they left Pittsburgh for Buffalo or Black Rock in September 1812. I know n othing about his discharge, but think he returned to his Regiment and served out his term o f three months. while my younger brother Ebenezer, re-enlisted for a second term an d returned home in the spring of 1819. My brother Nathaniel's second child was born Feby 6t h 1814 and named Oliver Hazard Perry in honor of the Hero of the Battle of Lake Erie. For some years after the War, and afte r my dads decease in June 1814, my brother Nathl and family lived nearby, he having charge o f our father's flouring mill, and his own Saw mill and afterwards until I was twenty years ol d, my brother lived within a mile of my mother's and I was often at his house sometimes for d ays and weeks living with him. He lived in that vicinity, never at a greater distance than fo ur miles from Pittsburgh, and never out of the County of Allegheny PA until in 1869-from th e year 1837 until 1869 my brother Nathaniel & family resided in Birmingham, now a ward of Pit tsburgh, and while I lived in Pittsburgh a short time, in Wheeling VA 54 miles distant fo r 8 years, in Somerset Pa 68 miles distant for 30 years, and in Washington City from 186 2 until his death, I visited him either on the farm or in Birmingham, sometimes annually or o ftener, and never longer than three years between visits, except from 1862 to 1868 while in W ashington City . I was with him and family in Birmingham, in Nov Dec 1868, for several da ys-he had been in feeble health for of 5 or 6 years-his wife Jane still living and quite stou t and healthy for one so aged. In the Spring of 1869, my brother sold his property, and having survived six of his children, and tw o of the remaining four residing in Louisville, KY, he and his wife went there to live with t heir eldest daughter & husband, who woth his (my brothers) youngest son was engaged in the ma nufacture of glass. On the 20th of Sept 1869, while in Washingtin, DC, I received a Telegra m from his daughter's husband, John Stanger that my brother had died on the day previous, an d that his remains would be taken to Birmingham for interment. On the next day (21st Sept ) I left Washington & arrived in Birmingham on the following morning. I did not see the corps e of my said brother, it being hermetically sealed in a casket. I accompanied the widow & chi ldren to the Cememtery in the County four miles distant and saw as I believe the mortal remai ns of my deceased brother, Nathaniel P. covered with the clods of the valley. In July 187 0 I met the widow and children in Birmingham, and at their request, I obtained letters of Adm inistration on my deceased brothers estate. I have not seen his widow since July 1871, but ha ve heard from her by letters, the latest by 5th July Ult. from her eldest son in Pittsburgh i n which he informed me that from a late letter he learned that his mother would visit Pittsbu rgh in the Spring if she kept her present good health. Her eldest, &, I believe, only brothe r living, Daniel Shawhan, was living near Pittsburgh in 1871. I believe though frail and nea r 80 years old. He was, no doubt, present, a boy, at my brother Nathaniel's wedding. I know o f no other person living that was present. I am satiisfied there was no Church or other publi c record made of his said marriage. I obtained the exact dates of my brother's birth & that o f his widow & their children, and of their marriage & as above cited from the family Bibles o f my father and my brother, many years since. I know that my brother Nathaniel and his wife J ane, now his widow, lived together as husband and wife from the date of their marriage unti l the day of his death, and I believe that she, if living, trmains his widow until the presen t hour. Her former P.O. address was Buchanon P.O. Birmingham, Pa. She at present resides in N ew Albany, Ind but as I learn her son in law Stanger intends removing again to Louisville thi s spring, the latter will be her residence. I have her name to papers in my possession sometimes very imperfectly written "Jane" and sometimes "Jane S. Pearson", using , no doubt, her maiden name as her middle name

Her parents died when Elizabeth was young and she raised by her older sister, who had married James Lounsdale; hence there are a few people who say that she was a Lounsdale.

Subject: The Camp family

Date: Fri, 7 Jul 2000 09:39:39 EDT

From: RPSorys@aol.com
Dear Mr. Francis,
Thank you for the information on James Camp. I was able to discover that he married Mary McClenahan in Keokuk County, Iowa, on October 19, 1868.To find this information, I began tracing the McClenahan family. I found some conflicts in the information you had about them. I know this is not the focus of your family history study, but I can give you a little more information about the Elijah McClenahan and his two wives and twenty some children. I found a biographical article about him published in Keokuk County, Iowa, in 1880. He was born in Kentucky, June 3, 1811. At the age of 16 he moved to Shelby County, Ohio. In 1831, he moved to Illinois. In 1855 he moved to Keokuk. He was married to Sarah Emery and Elizabeth Wilson. He died in Keokuk April 9, 1886. I found the probate information that lists his children, so am pretty certain this information is correct. It lists a daughter Mary Camp of Des Moines.
According to information I found, this Elijah McClenahan was the son of Elijah McClenahan and Elizabeth Kemp. They were married September 21, 1793 in Bourbon, Kentucky. Another source states his parents were Major Elijah McClenahan and Sally Shawhan. Could this just be two wives? The Elijah McClenahan that married Elizabeth Kemp in Kentucky parents are listed as John Finney McClenahan and Sarah Armstrong.
The 1850 Illinois Census for Stark County might explain the confusion. It lists two McClenahan families in the same area. Elijah and Sarah and their 10 children. (This matches with the Keokuk family.) and Henry and Sarah McClenahan. Henry and Sarah are both from Kentucky and their 3 children are from Indiana. Elijah is 38 and Henry is 52. I believe Henry is the Elijah Henry of your report and his wife is Sarah Shawhan. This Sarah is from Kentucky and is 46 years of age.
My interest is in the Camp family, so I did not follow this up any further. The Keokuk information and family members can be verified. The Ohio Census information I looked up myself. The other information, however, comes from geneology reports on the net so I cannot vouch for the accuracy.
Again, thank you for providing a clue to my family history. I read some of your material and am amazed at the scope of your project. I have been puttering with my family's history for five years now and have a room full of notes, but am no where near pulling them all together. My maiden name is Vance; and like your family they came over pre-revolutionary war from Ireland. They were scotch-irish and settled in the Shenandoah Valley in the Winchester area.
