Charles David MCANALLY "the Immigrant"

1685 - 1745

ID Number: I78951

  • RESIDENCE: SCT and Lancaster Co. PA

Notes


Taken from FAMILY REMINISCENCES: Written by: Dr. David Rice McAnally 1837


"My great, great grandfather McAnally was kidnapped near the mouth of the Forth in Scotland and brought to America and set down to shift for himself on the American coast . His account of this matter was in substance as follows: He was playing with some neighbor boys on the banks of the above mentioned river, when they discovered a large earthen pot filled with money. The father of the boy sent him to his father's who lived some distance to tell him to come and assist in the division of the money. On his way, he was overtaken by a man on horseback who inquired of him where he was going and upon being informed, proposed that he should ride behind him. Accordingly he mounted, but instead of arriving at his father's he was put on a vessel just ready to sail for America and was soon after landed near Philadelphia. Here he remained until he came of man's estate when he married a woman by the name of Houston and settled on the Susquehanna River near the mouth of Sweet Arrow Creek in Lancaster County, Penn. He was never able to assign any probable cause for his being kidnapped except that the individual near whose house the treasure was found might possess himself of it entire.
The only data we have now as to the arrival in America is as follows: The family account says that John, my great grandfather, was born in the 28th year of his father's age, and died in 1796 aged 83. So his father came at 8 years old, he was here 20 years before his son's birth and 10 3 years before his death. 103 years taken from 1796 leaves 1693 which must have been the year of his arrival.


On the Susquehanna where he first settled he raised his family consisting of three children: John, Charles, and Mary. After his death these children all of whom had previously married removed to Virginia, then Amherst County."


Four McAnally's, Charles, John, Jesse and David appear in Amherst ( now Ablemarle) County, Virginia around 1760. Others remained in Pennsylvania.


The McAnally family came from County Mayo, Ireland, where they had settled probably around the early 17th century. Previous to this, they probably were in Scotland, and may be related to the McAnally's of Callander, Perthshire. The name's origin may be MacAnalach, sons of Analach the chronicler, and is said to be trace d three thousand years in Scotland and Ireland back to King Miletus of Spain and the first settlers of Ireland.


Also found this info:


The forefathers of Charles left Ireland and fled to Scotland because of fighting. They lived in the counties of Armagh and Monaghan in Ireland. Then, McAnally was spelled MacNally and MacAnally. Actually, the ancient spelling was MacanFhailghigh, which means "poor man" !

Notes


"Thomas Simmons, the fore father of all the Simmons living in Illinois and Tennessee was married to Lucy Basham in Bedford County, Virginia in 1800. He was a man of unusual stature, 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighed near 300 pounds. Because of his unusual height he was called "Long Tom". He and his wife, Lucy, moved from Bedford County, Va. to what is now Macon County, Tennessee in 1809 - bringing with them their three sons, Joel, Hiram and Charles. Later their other children were born to them in Tennessee- Carroll, Franklin, Lucinda, Nicy, Celia and William in the autumn of 1809, Thomas (Long Tom) Simmons and his wife Lucy Basham Simmons came from Bedford County, Virginia and settled on West Fork of Long Creek, Sumner County, Tenn. and obtained a grant for about 2,000 acres of land along the creek and adjacent ridges. At that time his fourth son, Charles was a babe in arms.


He raised six sons and three daughters. Joel married Clarissa Meador, Carroll married Martha Jacobs and Lucinda married Carroll Alvis and the three couples moved to Ill. to make their homes. Hiram married Martha Meador, a sister to Joel's wife, and settled on land deeded to him by his father


"In the autumn of 1809, Thomas (Long Tom) Simmons and his wife Lucy Basham Simmons came from Bedford County, Virginia and settled on West Fork of Long Creek, Sumner County, Tenn. and obtained a grant for about 2,000 acres of land along the creek and adjacent ridges. At that time his fourth son, Charles was a babe in arms. He raised six sons and three daughters.


Joel married Clarissa Meador, Carroll married Martha Jacobs and Lucinda married Carroll Alvis and the three couples moved to Ill. to make their homes.


Hiram married Martha Meador, a sister to Joel's wife, and settled on land deeded to him by his father.


The Simmons family came to Illinois prior to the Civil War - but not enough years to erase family ties - their sympathies naturally were with the loved ones left in the South - Although they were against slavery and when the slavery question was being debated "pro and con". Long Tom and his wife Lucy were very old and were living on a beautiful knoll in the original county in Tennessee.


Grandfather Tom was afflicted with palsy and confined to his chair. His wife, Lucy, was a small woman - but when their house caught on fire, she managed to get him out of the house and a safe distance from the fire. She ran back to get something out of the house when her clothing caught fire - she ran to him and he burned his hands almost to a crisp in trying to tear her clothes off - but she became so terrified that she jerked away from him and ran - she started to come back to him - but collapsed and fell. He sat there the rest of that day, all that night and until sundown the next day scolding the wild animals from her body. At sundown - one of his grandsons - Simeon Simmons came to see about them and found him sitting helplessly by.


During the war this Simeon Simmons was captured by the North and imprisoned at Rockford, Illinois. Joel and Carroll made a bond to the U.S. Government that they would keep Simeon this side of the Mason-Dixon line for the duration of the War and in this way the government granted Simeon his release from prison. Charles J. Simmons September 1965."

Family 1 : Eleanora Letitia HIGGINBOTHAM

Notes


Joseph Stras, Sr. was a prominent attorney and trustee for many estates in Tazewell County, VA, and was highly respected as "the John Marshall of Western Virginia".


John Henry of Scotland m. Sarah Winston of Richmond VA, had daughter Lucy Henry (sister of Patrick Henry) who m. Valentine Wood of Goochland County, VA, had daughter Martha Wood who m. 2nd husband George Frederick Stras, migré of Strasburg France, had son Joseph Stras, Sr. born 1808, (who is a great-nephew of Patrick Henry).


My ancestor was apparently an adopted daughter of Joseph Stras, Sr., as she was about 3 at the time of his first marriage to Eleanor Higginbotham. I have a small trace that she was the niece of Eleanor.
