I am the gg grandson of Sarah Angeline McDanel Shaffer (1857-1948)of North Sewickley Township, Beaver County. I have been doing my research for over 15 years. I still reside in Beaver County and am interested in sharing notes with anyone researching the McDanels of Beaver County. My tress can be viewed at both Rootsweb and Ancestry. Much of the pre 1820 information is sketchy, and some of my early research is unsourced (the perils of a self-taught genealogist!). wvdonna62 - which of the five McDanel brothers do you descend from?
