Surname Saturday-McCartney

So many people have brick walls in their genealogy. I have some of those as well, but my McCartney is more like a fence with a good sized knot hole in it.  I can see the possible family on the other side, but I can’t get them connected.

John McCartney, by a few family histories is my fifth great grandfather. Oscar Burton Robbins in his Jackson Family history, states that John was the father of Isaiah McCartney and that he was the husband of Margret Clyde who was the daughter of Michael and Bridget Clyde. I also have a copy of an application for John through DAR done by a 2 nd great Aunt and submitted in 1908, which also states the above, but with little other information.

I have information that puts John and Isaiah in the same areas of Pennsylvania. I find information, putting  John McCartney in Leigh, in a list of names with Michael Clyde as  petitioners who were ordered to produce a draft for the proposed township (Allen) at the next court.

On the 1810 census I find Isaiah and part of his family in or near Derry Pa. Then again later in Ohio where they moved to. There is also an news article that Isaiah posted looking for his father in law James Hudders.

In short I can put Isaiah and his family together and I can with some certainty put John with his wife and in-laws, but to prove that Isaiah was the son of John, I have not been able to do thus far. I will keep plugging along and hopefully I am climbing the correct tree.
