Surnames: McPherson, Ash
Hello everybody. I am looking for my McPherson ancestors who moved to Scott County, IL from Muhlenburg County, Ky. between 1826 and 1851. James Starkey McPherson moved his wife Elizabeth Johnson McPherson and children there, via the old Cumberland trail. James S. and his wife are said to be buried near Winchester. Their son, James H. McPherson, married Rebecca Ash in Scott County, IL on Nov. 19, 1851 and then moved to Montgomery County, IL. James Starkey is said to have owned land near Winchester. I want to find out anything else that I can on this family. Can anybody help? Thank you.

Melissa, I think I just found James H. and Rebecca (Ash) McPherson in 1880 - living in San Simeon, San Luis Obispo, CA. If they did go to Montgomery County, they must have moved on.

His parents, James Starkey and Elizabeth Johnson McPherson, are buried in Bowers Cemetery, between Alsey and Manchester, in Scott County, Illinois. The cemetery is beside the blacktop road leading between the two towns.

James S. McPherson, b. 28 Jan. 1796, d. 19 Oct. 1879
Elizabeth McPherson, b. 29 Jan. 1799, d. 19 Sept. 1846

I have discovered my assumption about James and Rebecca (Ash) McPherson living in California in 1880 were wrong. Rebecca died 13 May 1870 in Montgomery County, Illinois, and is buried in Edgewood Cemtery in Litchfield, Montgomery County, IL.

I hope this mistake didn't mislead anyone.

The McPherson family you write about is my family also. I may have a few things different than you - but the same group. Scott County, IL seemed to be a destination for several families from Mehlenberg Co. The Bowers Cemetery is located between Alsey and Manchester, IL. Would love to share info. Thanks, Peggy

Muhlenberg Co., KY - Jesse McPherson, Sr. died there 14 May 1849 although he was born 15 Feb 1765 in PA either Chester Co. or Loudin Co. His son John born 27 Aug 1793 had a daughter Frances born about 1819-1821 in KY and married Wiley Blake in Logan Co. KY. They moved to Scott Co. IL and if I recall they are buried at Richwoods Cemetery in Greene Co. IL near where I grew up. Their son John Blake married Mary Ann McBride and their son Wm. Douglas Blake married Martha Ann Summers and they lived mostly in Scott & Greene Co. IL. They were my great grandparents. Any names look familiar? You may contact me direct at andysmomnmaid@yahoo.com.

Andy's Mom,
No. I'm looking for the family of Nancy Ann McPherson (1822) who md John Moore in 1850 in Scott Co, IL. Also Jannet McPherson (abt 1711) b. in Scotland who md Alexander McEntire in NC.
I'm interested in the Mary Ann McBride who md a McPherson, though. I have 2 Mary Ann McBrides in Scott Co, IL. One b.1838, d/o Wm, and one b.1853, d/o John. Did either of them marry a McPherson?

Leigh,

I can help you quite a bit with the descendants of John and Nancy Ann McPherson Moore. I'm a great-great-great-grandson of William Martin? McPherson, an uncle to Nancy. Anyway, I've spent a long, long time trying to learn as much as I can about the descendants of Jesse McPherson of Muhlenberg Co., KY. I have a great deal of information for those who moved to IL but less so for those who stayed in Muhlenberg Co. Still, I do have some data on those as well. Perhaps we can be of mutual help.

So far, I have very little on the descendants of both Nancy McPherson Davenport and her younger sister, Delilah McPherson Moore. But, perhaps you can help me with those lines. I'd be delighted to collaborate with you about them. I descend from their eldest brother, William Martin? McPherson.
