Wow.... This is quite interesting to find other descendents of John McPherran and Andrew McPherran. I will tell you what I have found out through various sources... Another relative, Archie L. mcPherran of Sacramento wrote to my uncle Donald F. McPherran that McPherrans have been in America since the early 1700's. John and William McPherran (spelled McFerran) were among the first settlers who "setled and made imporvements in the "Manor of Maske" before the 18th of June 1741. This was a borough of Gettsburg, Cumberland Township, Pennsylvania. John McPherran's son was Andrew mcPherran who served in the Revolutionary War. andrew is buried in the Arch Springs Cemetery, Spruce Creek, Pennsylvania.

I have a lot of information that I am trying to sort through and hope to hear from Archie McPherran with more info. Todate I show the following Family Tree:

Our family of McPherrans resided in Emerson Nebraska. In Rose Hill Cemetery in Emerson NE there are several McPherran's buried there. My Great Grandmother (Minnie) is the oldest relative that I personally new. In Emerson the family home and barn housed many antiques and family heirlooms. When my great grandmother died most of it was auctioned off. My father Richard (Dick) received the family Bible which contained hand written records of births, marriages, and deaths.

Once on a trip to Washington D.C. from Seattle where I live we visited Arlington National Cemetery. I checked with the records department there and were told that a James McPherran was buried there - we then went and found his grave site. He died shortly before the Civil War ended.

I will get back to you if I find out any more info.
