The Coat of Arms was adopted by the ]\Iahaffeys of Ireland 
in the 11th century, consisting of a shield, on which is a mailed 
arm raised in defense of the home, with a broken spear held in 
the hand and over it the inscription, "Factus Non Victtis," mean- 
ing, "broken but not conquered." All pieces of silverware, also 
furniture, as far back as 800 years has this engraved on it and is 
to be found among the old family relics in Dublin and other cities 
in Ireland.

THIS work is promulgated by its authors not in any sense 
as a literary gem, but rather as a forced product in re- 
sponse to the decision of the majority. It lacks finish, 
and in a great many respects certain details which would have 
made it a more valuable work. However, it is hoped that the 
object has been gained for which it was printed, namely, the pre- 
servation of data collected for years, and fulfilling the desire of 
the older members of the Clan who wished to see a book of the 
genealogies of those who have met year after year at the Re- 

This work is not confined to a single family, but to any who 
have, or descended from the name, who furnished data. The 
families will be taken up in the counties of Pennsylvania, where 
the first one of the name was known to locate. Necessarily the 
sketches must be brief, but it has been the aim to select those 
details which would help in establishing lines of either past or 
future generations, and for that reason this book is entitled to a 
place in every library of those who bear, or descend from the 
MahafTey name. Mention will also be made of those living in 
Ireland, who have for years taken an interest in members of the 
Clan here, and who have furnished us with interesting informa- 
tion concerning the early history of the family there. 

Space has been given to all who have furnished the necessary 
data in the way of biography, or history, of the present, as well 
as the past generations, but in most cases your historians have 
found it difficult to procure the needed data, possibly due to 
reticence, or modesty. We have aimed to avoid partiality in this 
regard, naturally were obliged to give only what we were able 
to procure.

Fellow descendents, at last we have found 

Our His'try, and in a book it is bound ; 

It dates from the time this good Irish name 

Scotland forsook, and in Ireland took claim. 

Scotch-Irish we are, none better I'm sure, 

With others 'tis crossed, remaining as pure 

In the veins of the Clan, flowing to-day — 

This His'try is proof — you cannot gainsay. 

In crossing the span of years we have tried 

To connect all the links, trusting you'll bide — 

Tradition as facts, since much has been found, 

Authentic indeed in our His'try bound. 

Lib'ral we have been with our fellow man. 

Including all names in this Irish Clan ; 

Not only the Ma's and the Me's you'll find, 

But names that are common to all mankind. 

In writing this book dear Clan we have found. 

Much interest displayed in making our round — 

You can judge for yourself, reading is proof, 

Some silence preferred, others remaining aloof. 

Not daunted by this, in silence the work — 

Even though some few their duties did shirk. 

Was fin'lly completed — we did our best 

With data secured may it stand the test 

Of critics, which in our Clan you may find — 

In censuring we trust they all keep in mind 

The efforts of those who this His'try wrote — 

They hope not for glory, this you will note — 

Simply to prove to generations to come. 

From whence they came, and to whom they belong ; 

We trust our struggle has not been in vain, 

And to all the world our "History" proclaim 

Mary E. Maiiaffe y Carst. 

Mahaffey Deiscendants 


For ten years the Mahaffey's of Clearfield and Lycoming 
counties, Pennsylvania, have been holding family Reunions. This 
Reunion idea was first conceived in the brain of Mrs. Addie 
Hennigh, of Punxsutawney, Pa., daughter of David MahafTey, of 
Louisiana, and grand-daughter of Thomas Mahaffcy, of New 
Washington, Pa., and was formulated by her to W. T. Mahaffey 
and wife, of Cherry Tree, Pa., who were visiting in her home, 
June 10, 1905, and was to the effect that an organization be 
formed, called the "Mahaffey Clan," and that they should hold 
reunions beginning that fall. Mr. Mahaffey, in his usual en- 
thusiastic manner, agreed to this, and they at once formed a 
temporary organization, electing Mr. Mahaffey President, and 
Mrs. Hennigh Corresponding Secretary, she agreeing to send out 
invitations to all known Mahaffeys to assemble at Mahaffey, 
Clearfield Co., Pa., to perfect the organization. In response to 
these invitations seventy-five relatives gathered at Mahaffey on 
the 12th day of September, 1905, and the first "REUNION" of 
the "Mahaffey Clan" in Pennsylvania, was held. The following 
officers were elected to serve one year : W. T. Mahaffey, Cherry 
Tree, Pa., President ; James Mahaffey, Clearfield, Pa., Vice Presi- 
dent ; W. P. Mahaffey, Clearfield, Pa., Secretary and Treasurer. 
The second reunion was held at Mahaffey, Pa., August 9th, 1906, 
with one hundred and seventy-five present. The same officers 
were re-elected, with the addition of Porter Kinports, of Cherry 
Tree, Pa., as Historian. 

The reunions continued at Mahaffey, Pa., with the same 
officers re-elected, increasing numbers and growing enthusiasm 
until six had been held — these had always partaken of the nature 
of all-day picnics and were heartily enjoyed. 

The success of the gatherings being largely due to the un- 
tiring efforts of Aunt Kate Mahaffey and her immediate family. 
At this sixth meeting, August, 1910, Asher C. Mahaffey, of 
Williamsport, Pa., was elected Vice President, the other officers 
being retained as before. Several committees v/ere appointed. 

6 Mahaffey Descendants 

Committee on Arrangements — Mrs. A. C. Mahaffey, Wil- 
liamsport, Pa. ; Mr. and Mrs. Moses Mahaffey, Hepburnville, Pa. ; 
Mrs. W. T. Mahaffey, Cherry Tree, Pa. 

Committee on Invitation — Harry B. Mahaffey, Harry Con- 
ner, Mrs. Maggie McMurry, Moses Mahaffey and Miss Rachael 
Mahaffey, of Dublin, Ireland. 

Committee on History — Mr. and Mrs. Porter Kinports, of 
Cherry Tree, Pa.; Mrs. W. T. Mahaffey, Williamsport, Pa.; 
Samuel Mahaffey, Marion, Ohio ; Dr. John Pentland Mahaffey, 
Dublin, Ireland. 

Committee on Finance — R. F. Mahaffey, Frank Flinn and J. 
R. McMurry. 

A vote was taken on place of meetng for the next year and 
carried in favor of Williamsport, Lycoming Co., Pa. (the cradle 
of most of these branches of Mahaffeys). President W. T. Ma- 
haffey gave a talk on his travels in Europe the year previous, and 
related the incidents of his visit to relatives of the Clan in Ireland, 
where he had the pleasure of seeing many old relics, which in- 
cluded some antique furniture which had been in the possession 
of the Mahaffey family for several hundred years. He read a 
letter from Dr. John Pentland Mahaffey, of Trinity College, 
Dublin, which was received with much enthusiasm. 

At the seventh reunion, August 31st, 1911, and the first one 
held at Williamsport, Pa. ; Ezra Rathmell was elected Vice Presi- 
dent, other officers remaining the same. The business meeting 
was held at the "Arlington Hotel." Several new features were 
introduced at this meeting.. 1. The reading of an authentic His- 
tory embracing the then known data. 2. The presentation to 
each member present of a facsimile of the "Coat of Arms," 
adopted by the Mahaffeys in the 11th century. 3. The delight- 
ful entertainment at the Acasia Club, by John Hall. 

The eighth reunion was again held in Williamsport, August, 
1912, this time at the New Crawford Hotel. In the election of 
officers the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer 
were retained ; Mrs. Geo. N. Davis, of Coffman, W. Va., was 
elected Historian, in the place of her father. Porter Kinports, 
who died the March previous. Mrs. O. Watson Bennett, of Wil- 
liamsport, Pa., Corresponding Secretary. Souvenir badges, with 

Mahaffey Descendants 7 

a print of the old Mahaffey Homestead, were presented to those 
present. At this meeting Mrs. O. Watson Bennett loaned a 
grandfather's clock, a chair, a curious sun-dial and a book of 
prayers, the property of Thomas MahafTey, Sr., for the inspection 
of his descendants. The assembly was again entertained at the 
Acasia Club, by John Hall. 

The ninth annual reunion of the Mahaffey Clan was held in 
the Y. W. C. A. Assembly Hall at Williamsport, Pa., August 14th, 
1913. The same officers were re-elected with two additional ones, 
Mrs. Kate Long, Howardsville, Assistant Secretary, and Mrs. M. 
E. Mahaffey Carst, of Harrisburg, Pa., Assistant Historian. 
The walls of the hall were handsomely draped in American flags. 
The flag of Ireland and the Mahaffey "Coat of Arms," occupy- 
ing prominent places immediately above the President's chair. 

The poem, "To the Clan," and the song, "Our Native Land," 
sung to the tune of "America," composed by Mrs. M. E. Mahaffey 
Carst, were easily the features of the day. 

At this meeting a motion was made and seconded that a book 
should be printed by the next reunion, which should include all 
the accumulated data of interest to the Clan, and such genealogies 
and histories of different families represented as could be 
gathered. The Historian opposed this motion, protesting that the 
work involved too much research to furnish complete authentic 
genealogies to be accomplished in a year. She was over-ruled and 
the motion carried. 

The success of this meeting, and largely those before held 
in Williamsport, was due to the indefatigable efforts of Mrs, O. 
Watson Bennett. Responding to an invitation, which had now 
become a delightful custom, the Clan repaired to the "Acasia 
Club" for an evening's festivity, Mr. John Hall appearing again 
as host. At the conclusion of the business meeting the vote 
carried to hold the tenth annual gathering of the "Mahaffey Clan" 
at Williamsport, Pa., August 13th, 1914. 

Mahaffey Descendants 


Mahaffey Descendants, good old Irish clan ! 
Be they youthful or aged, woman or man — 
My greetings to all at this annual event, 
I trust we shall feel the time is well spent. 
It has been many years since the first of our clan 
Left his emerald home to cross the great span, 
As green as the country he had left far behind. 
He landed, no doubt hoping fortune to find. 

Though centuries have passed since they crossed to this side, 

The clan of to-day we behold with much pride. 

Filling places of honor, trust and esteem. 

Which inspires our heart with love's stately mien. 

The ancient "Blue Stocking" is swept from our view, 

But the blood in our veins keeps flowing as blue; 

No longer 'tis sect, — but one family to-day. 

Our greetings exchange and our kinship display. 

The descendants surround us with many odd names. 
But to our "Irish Clan" they also lay claims ; 
The love for the shamrock sunk deep in each heart, 
Cause our faces to glow and our pulses to start. 
Perhaps as we gather to-day we shall miss 
Some familiar form, a hand clasp or kiss, 
Who have left us to join that reunion above. 
Awaiting our coming, our friendship, our love. 

Our clan as a rule are both happy and gay. 
Age proving no barrier to sunshine or play ; 
Last year I am told they all marched to the tune 
Of enchanting music, morn coming too soon. 
I trust as we gather round the gay festal board. 
We ever are mindful of our Saviour and Lord ; 
Even so, we can fill this bright day with much love. 
To assemble once more at that banquet above. 

This poor rambling verse comes from one of the clan. 
Though 'tis not from sweet maid, nor from stalwart man; 
The fruit of my mind I have given to you, 
A failure, no doubt I have proved, 'tis true. 

Mahaffey Descendants 9 

In conclusion dear friends my toast "To the Clan," 
Is always be cheerful, do good where you can, 
Thus prove to the world that the good Irish blood 
In Mahaffey descendants is flowing with love. 

Composed by Mrs. Mary E. Mahaffey Carst, 608 N. Seven- 
teenth Street, Harrisburg, Pa., complimentary to the Ninth 
Annual Rfunion of Mahaffey Descendants, held at Williams- 
port, Pa., August 14, 1913. 


(Sling to the tune of "America.") 

Our native land so dear. 

That thrills our heart with cheer 

Of thee we sing; 
Land where our fathers died. 
Land of the shamrocks pride, 
To-day upon this side 

Our voices ring. 

Our native land to thee. 
Our praises always be 

Loyal and true ; 
We love this emerald land, 
Our clan united stand, 
A happy Irish band 

We'll prove to you. 

Our native land so fair, 
Let all that breathe thy air. 

With rapture sing; 
E'en though you cannot hear. 
Our voices blend with cheer, 
To-day our hearts are near. 

Sweet memories cling. 

We love to laud this land, 
And proudly clasp the hand 

Of Erin's soil ; 
Long may our praises ring 
Though time its changes bring. 
To-day our clan doth sing 

And rest from toil. 

Composed by Mrs. Mary E. Mahaffey Carst, No. 608 North 
17th Street, Harrisburg, Pa., June 26th, 1913.

"Wire ! Brier ! Limberlock ! 
Four and twenty geese in a flock — 
One flew east, one flew west, 
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest." 

— Origin Unknown. 

At different times various branches of the Mahaffey family 
have emigrated from the north of Ireland and located on this 
side of the Atlantic. In Maryland at an early date and in Penn- 
sylvania as early as 1753. From these branches have sprung 
a progeny that numbers many thousands, and probably every 
state in the Union, as well as Canada, boasts representatives. 

The Mahaffeys are of Scotch-Irish descent, and the early 
settlers of that name in Pennsylvania intermarried with such 
families as the Lindsays, Allisons and Hamiltons, also Scotch- 
Irish and born in northern Ireland, and all mentioned families 
originally from Scotland. 

The line of direct descent of those who settled in this country 
in the eighteenth century has not been established in Ireland, 
owing to the fact that those in the Island of the name are barren 
of information, as are those here concerning the generations who 
lived early in the eighteenth, and late in the seventeenth centuries, 
have been unable to furnish exact data along that line. Neither 
has the exact connection between the different branches of the 
family in this country been established, as apparently no records 
were kept by the first generation locating here. 

After a great deal of research the conclusion has been 
reached that all those families, both in Ireland and America, who 
sprang from stock in Northern Ireland, and of protestant faith, 
are of one blood ; and could the lines be traced far enough, would 
merge into one common ancestor. 

The early Mahaffeys were Episcopalians or Presbyterians, 
but intermarriage with other denominations has resulted in a 
diversity of faiths. Those who are church members are usually 
active, devoted workers ; those who are not afiiliated with any 

Mahaffey Descendants 11 

denomination can usually be relied upon to help with any good 
cause, many doubtless carrying on benevolent work unknown to 
the world. 

Various forms of the name are used — McHaffie, Mehaffie, 
Mehaflfy, Mahafify, Mahaffee and Mahaffey. Immediate mem- 
bers of the same family have used as many as two or three of 
these, so that little reliance can be placed on the spelling of the 
names as a means of tracing the lines. Mahaffey is a popular 
form of the name in America, and numerous families have 
adopted that spelling, although records show the name to have 
been spelled differently at an early date. 

The family in this country for years embraced agricultural 
pursuits, and were busy with the task of wresting homes and 
sustenance from wilderness and the soil. 

Tales of Indian warfare have been handed down from gen- 
eration to generation, but those now living have very vague ideas 
as to the conditions then existing, and the hardships and trials 
those early pioneers endured. 

The family are not noted especially for brilliant achievement, 
but has been represented in all the walks of life. Some have held 
positions of trust and honor ; most of them have been good 
citizens ; honesty and sobriety have as a rule marked their course.

Mahaffey Descendants 13 


1. Thomas Mahafifey, the progenitor of the Lycoming and 
Clearfield county Mahaffey's was born in northern Ireland, prob- 
ably Donegal county, in 1734. He emigrated to this country 
prior to 1771, and probably located in East Pennsborough town- 
ship, Cumberland Co., Pa., as here his first child was born. His 
wife's name was Elizabeth Lindsey, who was born in 1741, and 
as that name is closely associated with the early history of that 
section, she is doubtless of the same stock. His people were 
Scotch-Irish, as were also hers, and they were of Presbyterian 

In 1773 he located on the west side of the Lycoming creek, 
Lycoming Co., Penna., near what is now Bridge Number Two, 
and built a log cabin at that place. At this time the name of 
Joseph Mahaffey is closely associated with Thomas, as land 
warrants were taken out by them at the same time, and their 
places either adjoined or were one and the same — a sun-dial 
found on the premises bearing the name of Joseph Mahaffey, 
and the date 1803 goes to prove that they were closely asso- 
ciated in some way, but all trace of Joseph has been lost. The 
name of the place first patented to Thomas Mahaffey was "Pleas- 
ant Grove." 

In 1778 an uprising of the Indians caused him to carry his 
family and live stock to a nearby "Block House." The horses 
broke loose and went back home. To recover them he crept 
cautiously back through the woods and on the edge of the clear- 
ing paused in sight of the house. An Indian appeared in the 
doorway and smoke was seen emerging from the roof ; soon the 
whole was a mass of flames. It is told that he recovered the 
horses, but he and other settlers were obliged to abandon the land 
for a time. 

In 1780 he returned and built a more pretentious house on 
the Lycoming Creek State Road. This was the first house built 

14 Mahaffey Descendants 

between Williamsport and Trout Run. In 1784 a new grant of 
land gave him the opportunity of increasing his holdings until 
by patent and purchase he owned about six hundred acres. Some 
of this land and the house remained in the possession of his 
immediate descendants until 1897, when it was sold and the old 
house was torn down in 1890. 

It has always been understood in the family that Thomas 
Mahaffey fought in the Revolutionary War. A history of Ly- 
coming county states that he was a soldier in the Revolution and 
noted for his strength and courage. 

Thomas Mahaffey died January 13th, 1813, and his wife in 
the year 1819. They are buried in the cemetery at Newberry. 
Simple marble slabs mark their last resting place. Thomas and 
Elizabeth Lindsay Mahaffey had six children, as follows :

6 ^James Mahaffey,- d. a bachelor in Burnside, Clearfield 

Co., and was buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, near 
New Washington, Pa. 

7 ^Mary Mahaffey,- m. Cummings. 

This family, so far as we know, are the only Mahaffeys who 
settled near the headwaters of the Susquehanna river, and there- 
fore must be those relatives of whom John Mahaffey, of Dru- 
more, Parrish of Lifford, County Donegal, Ireland, and his 
nephew, James Mahaffey, born about 1770, of Masshill, Parrish 
of Lifford, county Donegal, Ireland, talked when James Ma- 
haffey of Pittsburg, Penna., now deceased, the grand nephew of 
one, and the son of the other, overheard them speak of "some 
relatives who emigrated to America, and settled somewliere near 
headwaters of the Susquehanna." This same James of Pitts- 
burgh said his father claimed kinship with the father of U'octor 
John Pentland Mahaffey, of Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. 

Therefore, logically speaking, this branch of the Mahaffey 
family are of the same stock as the above-mentioned branches in

Second Generation 

2 7OHN MAHAFFEY,== (Thomas, ') 

John Mahaffey, the eldest son of Thomas and EHzabeth 
Lindsey Mahaffey, was born February 25, 1771, in East Penns- 
borough township, Cumberland county, Pa. His parents settled 
in Lycoming county in 1773. He married Lydia Bailey, who was 
born August 18, 1778, in Chester county, Pa. 

John Mahaffey died September 22, 1848, and his wife, March 
26, 1864. They lived in Lycoming county, one mile above the 
Moses Mahaffey place, and here their children were born. 

John Mahaffey, about whom very little information is avail- 
able, is described as an unusually large man, weighing about 240 
pounds. They had ten children :

4 ^WILLIAM MAHAFFEY,2 (Thomas/) 

William Mahaffey, third child of Thomas and Elizabeth Lind- 
sey Mahaffey, was born in Lycoming county, Pa., in the year 1779, 
was married in 1806 to Nancy Bennett, who was born 1784. She 
was the daughter of John and Margaret Clendenin Bennett, of 
Woodward township, Lycoming county, Pa. 

They first lived on a farm near the old Mahaffey homestead, 
but in 1827 he moved his family to Clearfield county, purchased a 
tract of land on the river at Burnside, and built a log house on the 
present site of the Horace Patchin house. In 1828 his wife, 
Nancy Bennett, died, leaving six sons. 

In 1830 William Mahaffey married Elizabeth Talbert, and in 
1833 returned to Lycoming county, leaving his three sons and his 
brother James on the land. A few years prior to his death hft 
came to live with his son John, near Cherry Tree, Pa. His second 
wife died in 1849, leaving two daughters. 

A grand-daughter says: "I remember grandfather as quite 
tall, Avith a cheery, open countenance, a mild blue eye, quite bald 
and wore side whiskers. His style of dress was that of a gentle- 
man of his times, blue broadcloth suit, plaited bosom white linen 
shirt, with a black silk stock, but not the flaring collar above, just 
a neat turnover collar of linen. He was our confidante and play- 
fellow, and entered into our childish sports with zest. We were 
fond of hearing grandfather's tales and jokes, the telling of which 
was his delight. He spoke of his mother with the greatest rever- 
ence, saying, 'She was a good. Christian mother.' " 

He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. One of the 
few things he brought with him to his son's home was his large 
family Bible, bound in red Morocco. He died in 1859, and is 
buried in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, at Cherry Tree, Pa. The 
children of William and Nancy Bennett were:

daughter of David Reynolds, who came from Orange county, 
New York, and was the first settler on Trout Run, Lycoming 
county. In person Moses MahafTey was a man quite tall and 
straight, had blue eyes and light hair, but not much of it (a Ma- 
haffey trait). He and his wife were Presbyterians, she joining 
the Methodist Church later in life. He was a Whig, later a Re- 
publican, filling various township offices. He lived for years in 
the old Mahaffey homestead, and died there March 20, 1851, his

18 ^JOHN MAHAFFEY,^ (William,- Thomas Mahaffey/) 

John Mahaffey, eldest son of William and Nancy Bennett 
Mahaffey, born in Lycoming county. Pa., in the year 1807. When 
twenty years old the family moved to Burnside, Clearfield county, 
Pa. The mother being in feeble health, was his special care, and 
she received at his hands the loving ministrations of a devoted son. 
He was married December 24, 1833, to Ellen Boyer, by the Rev. 
Robert Simonton, the first M. P. minister in Clearfield county, at 
her father's home, near New Washington, Pa. 

In 1837, the Burnside place was sold and John moved his 
family to New Washington, where they lived with his wife's 
parents, while he went to Illinois with a view to locating in that 
section, his brother Thomas accompanying him. Not finding the 
country to their liking they returned to Clearfield county. John 

20 Mahaffey Descendants 

then bought a tract of land near Cherry Tree, and in 1845 built on 
the banks of the Susquehanna, one mile below town, the second 
frame house in that section of the country. This place was 
named "Locust Villa." The house was a story and a half high, 
with three dormer windows in the roof facing front. These 
windows have since been removed. In 1888 he moved to Cherry 
Tree, to be nearer his children, Margaret and William, buying the 
Jesse Harter house. 

Grandfather was at least six feet tall, had clear, blue eyes, 
was clean shaven and had the usual "Mahaffey" scarcity of hair, 
and as his grandchildren remember him, was never seen without 
a cane, and always carried his silk bandanna handkerchief in his 
large, soft, black, felt hat. He used some expressions that will 
never be forgotten. When provoked, or ordinary language failed 
to express his feelings, he would say with emphasis, "Jiminy." 
He always called a saucer, a "sasser," and told a granddaughter 
she was the "sassiest girl in three counties." 

Absolute fairness in all his dealings, mixed with unusual 
benevolence and unselfishness, made him a man esteemed and 
beloved by all. Although very modest in deportment, he was a 
man of his own mind, and in matters of local interest, his opinion 
was sought and respected. 

He and his wife were members of the M. P. Church, his wife 
joining at the early age of fourteen years. He died at his home 
in Cherry Tree, Pa., in 1890, and was buried in the Odd Fellows' 
Cemetery, near town. 

Ellen Boyer, wife of John Mahaffey, and only daughter of 
John and Mary Colgin Boyer, was born in Huntingdon county. 
Pa., in 1811, and moved with her parents to New Washington, 
Clearfield county, in 1821. She was the only white girl in Burn- 
side township at that time, and was the idol of her parents and 
six brothers. In young girlhood she attended school at Birming- 
ham, Huntingdon county, riding horse-back to and from that 
place at the beginning and close of sessions. She was married 
at the age of twenty years and proved a capable, devoted help- 
mate, and a loving, indulgent mother. Her grandchildren were 
dear to her heart, particularly the first ones, whom she loved to 
hold in her arms, singing as she rocked them to sleep. The older 

Mahaffey Descendants 21 

grandchildren can well remember these songs. One of them went 
like this : 

"I had a little hen, and her name was Cra Creen, 
She laid an egg every day worth a farthing — 
She went to the woods through rain and hail — 
And carried wood home again packed on her tail. 
Cra Creen ! Cra Creen ! where is your nest? 
Under the green ivy tree that I love best — 
Where all the little birds sing for you and me." 

You being replaced by the name of the particular grandchild to 
whom she was singing. 

Grandmother was a well preserved woman at eighty. Before 
they moved to Cherry Tree it was no unusual occurrence for her 
to walk both ways, a good two miles. She was always active and 
industrious, and when not busy with household duties was either 
reading, sewing or knitting. She knit three counterpanes after 
she was eighty years old. Grandmother had black hair, slightly 
silvered, grey eyes and a good complexion, very erect and rather 
large; was jolly and a good companion. Was generous to the 
poor, and in her efiforts to relieve suffering, untiring. She and 
her husband celebrated their golden wedding in 1883. She out- 
lived him seven years. In 1897 she died and was buried by his 
side. The children that blessed this union were :

Thomas, second son of William and Nancy Bennett Ma-

brothers to Clearfield county in 1827. In 1833 he married Mar- 
garet, daughter of Rev. David and Elizabeth Mitchell, who was 

22 Mahaffey Descendants 

born in 1810. He went West with his brother John, but returned 
and bought the Gallagher farm, on which was a double log house. 
This was the first one built in the village of New Washington. 
He built a log bam, and about 1848, built a new house. In 1855 
his wife died, and in 1856 he married Harriet Woodford, who 
was born in 1826. He was a lumberman and farmer, and spent 
his last days in New Washington. He died in 1890 and was 
buried in Mt. Zion cemetery.

24 Mahaffe;y Descendants 

Moved with his family to Clearfield county in 1827. He with his 
brothers were engaged in lumbering and farming. At the age of 
twenty two he bought two tracts of land near the present site of 
Mahaffey, containing 417 acres. Here he cleared enough land 
for a good farm and operated the first water power saw-mill in 
that section of the country. He lived here for a quarter of a cen- 
tury, then moved across the river into town. His home was then 
the "Mecca" of raftsmen, and on more than one occasion he fed 
and slept one hundred watermen. About 1854 he entered into 
partnership with John M. Comings and they opened a store in 
New Washington. Later they opened another at Ostend. The 
partnership was continued for ten years. In 1868 a store-room 
was built and a large store opened in Mahafifey, the town that 
bears his name. Here he continued business until declining 
years compelled him to retire. He was a Presbyterian in faith, 
a Democrat in politics, and a man of high integrity and he was 
much respected by all. He died September 16, 1901. Robert 
MahafTey was twice married. His first marriage occurred in 
1841, with Mary McGee, daughter of James McGee, one of the 
earliest settlers of this section. To this marriage were three 
children born : — 

87 ^William S. Mahafifey," b. 1841, m. Martha Mc- 


88 ^James Mahafifey,* b. 1843, m. Samantha Thompson. 

89 ^Mary C. Mahaffey,'' b. 1845, m. John Byers. 

On December 19, 1847, he entered into marriage (the second 
time) with Mary Catherine Johnston, of McGee's Mills, who 
was born December 29, 1826. They lived for some time on the 
old homestead, "across the river," but about 1870 moved to the 
fine old place in town. Aunt Kate, as she was familiarly called 
by all who knew her, was a wonderful character, and few women 
of her day, or any day, could accomplish what she did. Many 
a night when those lumbermen were under the shelter of her 
home, or camped in the barn, she would spend the entire night 
baking biscuit. Houses of public entertainment were few, and 
far between in those days, and this house was never known to 
close its doors against the stranger seeking shelter. Small wonder 

Mahaffey Descendants 25 

then that "Aunt Kate and Uncle Rob" were known, and loved, far 
and near. She was a faithful worker in the Methodist Church, 
of which she was a member. She survived her husband several 
years, her mind remaining active and clear to the last. She died 
May 21, 1913. There were nine children born to this union:

liams Centre, four miles from Bryan, Ohio, October 15, 1842. 

This section of Ohio was then a vast wilderness, inhabited 
by Indians and wild game. This first winter was a hard one for 
these pioneers, the young wife had to take the straw out of the 
beds, sprinkle with flour and feed to the horses to keep them from 

It was eighteen miles to Defiance, the then nearest trading 
post, and the journey was usually made on foot, as there was 
only a blazed trail through the woods. 

The men usually carried a bundle of deer hides to trade for 
groceries. A mail only arrived once in two weeks, with twenty- 
five cents duty to be paid, if one were so fortunate as to get a 

A daughter, writing of her mother, says: "Mother was 
good, kind and loving, a devoted Christian, a member of the 
United Brethren Church. Boasting many friends and was a jolly 
companion. She was brave and fearless, an expert horsewoman, 
could ride or drive anything in the horseflesh line." She died 
November 27, 1891. There were ten children born to Thomas 
and Sarah Jane Mahaffey Blair:

Mahaffey Descendants 33 

was born in 1843. Was born and reared in Lycoming county; 
has been a resident of Williamsport, Pa., for many years, where 
he has been very successful in the lumber business, beginning 
when a boy twenty years of age. He has accumulated quite a 
fortune, and at the present time has large lumber interests in the 
western states of Oregon and Washington. 

Mr. Hall has taken an active part in the "Mahaffey Clan" 
organization, has acted as one of a committee on entertainment 
for some years. For the past four years he has entertained the 
entire Clan at a banquet, given by himself, free of charge, at the 
beautiful "Acasia Club," the finest club building in the eastern 
part of the state, of which he is one-third owner, it having been 
built at a cost of $150,000. 

Mr. Hall is a very quiet, unassuming man, never known to 
speak in public, excepting at the meeting of the Clan in August, 
1913. At the beginning of the programme he addressed over 300 
of the guests, which proved a most agreeable surprise. The oldest 
persons present that knew him from a child, remarked, "It was 
the first time they ever saw him appear before an audience." 

Mr. Hall stands at the head of the business men of his city; 
his word is just as good as his bond, which can be said, due, to the 
good "Mahaffey" blood in his veins. 

The writer wishes to add in conclusion, that Mr. Hall has 
made it possible to publish the "Mahaft'ey Descendants History," 
by aiding the President of the Clan in the financial part of the 
work, which is truly a very necessary part. And it can be said 
of him : 

"A most generous man to the "Mahaffey Clan," 
In his quiet, unassuming way ; 

This memorial will live in the minds of man. 
For it is such that will never decay."

Was married Jan. 1, 1856, to Jackson Patchin, son of John and 
Elizabeth Patchin, at "Locust Villa," near Cherry Tree, Pa., by 
Rev. Robert Simonton. 

Her husband was a merchant and lumberman at Patchin- 
ville, Pa. ; here they went to housekeeping, and here their chil- 
dren, two sons, were born. Later they moved to Burnside. 

She was a member of the M. P. Church, and a woman of 
unusual benevolence and charity. She was much beloved in her 
community and sadly mourned at her death, which occurred sud- 
denly while on a visit to her sister, Mrs. Crowther, of East End, 
Pittsburgh, in 1891. She and her husband are buried in the fam- 
ily lot, in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, at Cherry Tree, Pa. The 
children of this union are:

Margaret Bennett, second child of John and Ellen Boyer 
Mahafifey, and oldest living grandchild of William Mahaffey, was 
born April 30, 1837, at Burnside, Clearfield Co., Pa. 

As a child she remembers playing with a string of solid 
silver buttons which had been cut from a coat belonging to some 
of her Mahaffey forbears. These buttons were afterwards made 
into teaspoons, and are highly prized by those who possess them. 
As she grew older she went about the place with her father, often 
helping him calculate lumber, or with his books at night. 

She was united in marriage to Porter Kinports, Sept. 15, 
1859, at "Locust Villa." The Rev. John Kennedy, of the Presby- 
terian church, officiating. 

She has personal recollections of both paternal and maternal 
grandfathers. In a personal conversation with her as to relation- 
ship of some of the family lines she told the writer this : "I well 
remember that my grandfather William (2) met and conversed 
with James (2) MahafTey, of Marietta, Pa., at a Fourth of July 
celebration held at Cherry Tree, Pa., and during their conversa- 
tion they traced a direct relationship. They were first cousins, 
of their fathers were." This matter being uncertain in my mind. 
If they were cousins, then James (1) and Thomas (1) were 
brothers ; if the fathers were cousins, then the grandfathers were 
brothers, and makes the Lancaster county MahafTeys and the Ly- 
coming county Mahafifey s of the same stock.

Margaret Bennett, at seventy-seven, is a well preserved 
woman, with an Irish grey eye, hair somewhat silvered, once 
black ; a rosy complexion, and rather an erect carriage. Her 
ready wit and unselfish disposition make her a charming com- 
panion, and she is held in high esteem by all who know her. Her 
home, "The Maples," at Cherry Tree, has always been noted for 
its genial atmosphere, and friends and strangers alike have shared 
its hospitality. She still resides there. 

Porter Kinports, son of John and Mary Rench Kinports, was 
born at Frankstown, near Hollidaysburg, Pa., Sept. 6, 1831. In 
early boyhood his family moved to that section of Cambria county, 
contiguous to Canoe Place, now called Cherry Tree, when his older 
brothers engaged in farming and the mercantile and lumber busi- 
ness, he helping them in the outdoor work on the farm and woods 
work. At a suitable age he went to College at Lewisburg, Pa., 
now Bucknell University, and would have graduated with his 
class of 1856 had not the illness of his brother Gideon demanded 
his presence at home. This illness followed by death, and a few 
years later the death of his brother David, left him and his brother 
James the sole surviving male members of the family. He then 
assumed charge of the business, which he successfully conducted 

In 1859 he married Margaret Mahaffey, and lived in the 
farmhouse near Cherry Tree until 1876, when he moved his fam- 
ily to the village. He was highly esteemed in his locality among 
business associates, as a man of ability, honor and integrity. Of 
him it could be well said, "His word was as good as his bond." 

He was president of the First National Bank of Cherry Tree 
from the time of its incorporation in 1903 until his death. In 
matters of local interest he was ever wide awake and ready to 
promote anything for the good of the public, but often laughingly 
remarked that the most honorable office to which he could be 
elected in local politics was "overseer of the poor," which office 
he held quite often. He was a Democrat, and seemed proud of 
that fact, although hopelessly in the minority in his village. He 
was a member of the Noble Lodge of Masons, Curwinsville, Pa. ; 
Moshannon Commandery, Philipsburg, and Williamsport Con- 
sistory, and Jaffa Temple, Altoona.

He and his wife were members of the M. P. Church. He 
died at his residence in Cherry Tree, Pa., March 5, 1912, and was 
buried in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, the Masons conducting the 
burial. Porter and Margaret Kinports had ten children :

of Samuel and Ellen Crowther, of Venango Co., March 15, 1860, 
by the Rev. J. P. Kennedy. Their attendants were J. E. Pittman

William T., son of John and Ellen Boyer Mahaffey, was born 
June 25, 1848, at "Locust Villa," near Cherry Tree, Pa. He was 
married to Julia J., eldest daughter of Col. Clark and Hettie 
Graham Patchin, at Glen Hope, Clearfield Co., Pa., October 17, 
1876, by his brother-in-law. Rev. S. F. Crowther. For a year 
or more they made their home with his father, then moved to 
Cherry Tree. In 1894 his wife died. She was from the age of 
fourteen years a member of the Methodist Church and was a 
gentle, Christian woman, devoted to her family and their interests. 
She was the mother of six children. 

W. T. Mahaffey married a second time, December 18, 1902, 
Sarah Edmondson, daughter of A. C. and Mary Edmondson, of 
McKeesport, Pa., highly esteemed and respected in her com- 
munity. She has been a member of the Presbyterian Church 
from the age of fourteen years and is an active, earnest worker. 
Her husband a member of the M. P. Church since 1876, joined 
the Presbyterian Church with her in 1904. 

William T. Mahaffey has been President of the "Mahaffey 
Clan" from its organization, and has been instrumental in gather- 
ing a great deal of the Irish data of the Clan, as Tie and his son 
Leroy, visited Ireland and the homes of some of the name in that 
country ; owing to the loyalty of this good man one of the His- 
torians was prompted to write this verse : 

"Our President." 

Large of stature, large of heart, 
He has played the hero's part. 
Standing by this sturdy clan — 
Truly he has proved a man 
Of sterling worth. . Laud his praise 
For his grit, in many ways 
You can prove to him your joy ; 
Matters not if girl or boy ; 

Mahapfey Descendants 39 

Aged too, can grasp his hand — 
Tell the clan in foreign land 
How our President, so true. 
Led these people till they grew 
Large enough to fill a book — 
So fellow Clansmen kindly look 
O'er these pages, till you find 
A beaming face, eyes most kind — 
Dwell a moment with content, 
Upon our noble "President." 

Mr. Mahafifey, when only 13 years of age, was Drum Major 
in Co. D., 78th Reg., Penn. Vol., in '61 and '62.

In 1889, when the whole world was shocked and stirred by the 
disaster at Johnstown, the majority of this family, and the home 

Mahaffey Descendants 51 

was wiped out of existence by a similar flood. The scene of the 
tragedy on that awful night beggars description. A happy 
gathering of friends to witness the closing exercises of the little 
home school, presided over by a charming governess. A leaving 
of some of the guests, some having been detained at home by 
threatening clouds. After tea, music and conversation, but con- 
tinued rain, until bedtime. 

A growing uneasiness by the husband, and father, as to 
whether the dam, a short distance above the house might hold, no 
fear at all of the house being disturbed because of high water, as 
it had stood through similar experiences. A retiring to rest, but 
uneasy slumbers, aroused at two o'clock by the storm raging in 
fury, investigation proved waters rising rapidly, bridges swept 
away — retreat to mountain cut ofif. Thinking the dam had 
broken, and that the waters would soon recede, the twelve inmates 
of the house, although on the alert were not fearful. Soon logs 
and trees began to bump the house, and room by room it began to 
give way, and then the angry torrent was apparent to all. The 
bravery and Christian fortitude of the wife and mother, with her 
six-months-old babe clasped to her breast, the calmness and hero- 
ism of the governess. Miss Eliza Phelps, and the manliness of the 
little son, who prepared with his father to save any that he could, 
are only a few of the details that can be mentioned — but oh! the 
awfulness of it all. Then that last terrible crash, when the angry 
waters engulf those precious forms and the fight for life begins. 
Not many to be saved, with the odds so fearfully against them. 
Eight out of twelve was the fearful toll exacted — the mother and 
governess, a guest and five children.

position of "Clan Historian," which he held at the time of his 
death. The following verse written by the Assistant Historian, 
will, I think, voice the sentiments of the majority, relative to the 
work, and labor of our "Historian." 

"Untiring in her efforts, 

She has labored long and well. 
Little of herself you read — 

So my friends, I'm going to tell 
In simple rhyme the story 

Of how much we owe to her. 
She labored not for praises — 

No ! perhaps it might occur 
To you, that she is human. 

And deserving well the praise — 
So here's to our "Historian" — 

And we hope in many ways 
To prove to her our gratitude. 

May God reward her well — 
Since man so little seems to give, 

May she long amongst us dwell."

Thus endeth the Lycoming branch, 

A goodly number too ; 
They do not boast of lordly names — 

But speak of how they grew 
From one good man, into a clan, 

Generous — Noble — True. 
Including all who bear their name, 

To help — to dare — to do. 

But when we say Lycoming branch. 

We wish it understood, 
That this includes the name of those 

In Clearfield — where boyhood 
And girlhood days by many spent. 

Now drifted far and wide ; 
Yet to the branch you do adhere. 

No matter what betide.

624 JAMES MAHAFFEY, or McHAFFEY, the progenitor of 
the Lancaster county Mahaffeys, was born in the northern part of 
Ireland, and was the son of James Mahaffey, 1st. He emigrated 
to America, and settled in Little Bertian township, Lancaster Co., 
Pa., on the farm adjoining the one on which Robert Fulton lived. 

One "James McHaffey," (supposed to be this same James) 
enlisted in Captain Ross' company at Lancaster, Lancaster Co., 
Pa., May 1, 1775, as a private in the Revolutionary War. He 
arrived in camp at Cambridge Aug. 18, 1775, remained with 
Washington's army near Boston during the Fall of 1775, engaged 
in skirmishes with the enemy near Charleston. The company lost 
one man and one taken prisoner. James McHaffey re-enlisted 
May 1, 1776, continued with Washington's army during Fall in 
vicinity of New York and New Jersey, and went into W^inter 
quarters at Morristown. In its last services Captain Ross' com- 
pany took prominent and honorable part in battles of Brandywine, 
Germantown, Paoli, Monmouth and several other engagements, 
and continued in the field to the end of the war. 

The writer is responsible for much of the above data, having 
found it, in making research in the history of Lancaster county, 
facts and dates coincide, so the conclusion was reached that the 
war history applied to our progenitor of the Lancaster county 
branch of Mahaffeys. 

625 \TAMES MAHAFFEY,^ (James.^) 

James Mahaffey, son of James, progenitor of the Lancaster 
county IMahaffeys, was born June 12, 1781 ; married Mary Coch- 
ran, who was born Nov. 25, 1787. They lived in Marietta, Pa. 
Mr. Mahaft'ey was extensively engaged in the lumber business, 
and a prominent man of affairs in his community. 

W^e find a change in the spelling of the name, Mr. Mahaffey 
having a large correspondence found it easier to write by drop- 
ping the Mc, writing it Mahaffey, a popular form of spelling the 
name. He was an elder in the Donegal Presbyterian Church ; 
died Jan. 1, 1851, was buried in the Marietta Cemetery. He was

662 CHARLES MAHAFFEY, progenitor of the Cumberland 
county Mahaffeys, emigrated from the northern part of Ireland 
to this country previous to June, 1753. 

In making research we find mention in the History of 
Cumberland county that Charles and Guain Mahaffey were in- 
cluded in the earliest settlers in that section of the country, all 
being mentioned of Scotch-Irish descent and of Presbyterian 

We also find recorded in the land title department of the 
State, that a warrant was granted Charles Mahafifey, Jan. 29, 
1753, for 185 acres of land, situated on the south side of the 
Yellow Breeches Creek, South Middleton township, Cumberland 
Co., Pa. According to the custom of the day it was named "Well 

In the year 1762 we also find a warrant granted to Thomas 
Mahaffey for 185 acres of land adjoining that of the Charles 
Mahaffey tract, this same land passing into the possession of 
James and Thomas Mahaffey, sons of Charles, in the year 1835 ; 
all trace of said Thomas being lost. 

We also notice on the original warrant of Charles, that the 
adjoining land was owned by one John, and Guain Mahaffey. 
Guain was the brother of Charles, who never married ; as for the 
John all trace of him is also lost ; the writer has concluded, 
being so closely associated, that they were all brothers, or cousins^ 
later scattered to some distant county, or state, and possibly some 
of the Clan included in this work descend from one of the men- 
tioned Mahaffeys. 

We have no record of the birth, marriage, or death of the 
said Charles, yet we know he married a Miss Allison, who was 
also included in the earlier settlers of that section, also of the 
same descent and faith. A maiden sister of the wife of Charles 
Mahaffey is recalled by one of his grandsons as "Aunt Sallie 
Allison." Yet the given name of his grandmother is not recalled. 
We would suppose that Charles Mahaffey was at least 21 years 


Maiiaffey Descendants 71 

of age when he took title to his land ; if so, he would have been 
born about 1732, his wife was born about 1746; died about 1854, 
dying at the advanced age of 108 years, having been blind for 
more than 25 years. 

A grandson said, "I recall grandmother sitting in an arm- 
chair, even though her eyes were sightless, her fingers ever busy 
with her knitting needle." Also said, "When we would visit her 
she would call us to her side, ask which one it was, 'Billy or 
Stuart.' " She died with her son Thomas, with whom she had 
lived for many years. 

It also has been handed down to the present generation that 
the Cumberland county Mahaffeys come from an old wealthy 
stock in Ireland. Preparations were once made for a member of 
the family to cross to the Emerald Isle and lay claim to the await- 
ing fortune, but for some reason was not carried out. 

In conclusion the writer wishes to call the attention of the 
reader to the coincidence between the Lycoming and Clearfield 
county and Cumberland county branches in the way of birth 
dates, 1732 and 1734, similarity of original spelling, "Mehafify," 
and locating in adjoining townships, namely East Pennsborough 
and South Middleton, at an early period the same, and last, of 
Thomas and Charles Mahaffey, of 1762 and 1753 owning adjoin- 
ing land ; her impression is, "They were either brothers, or a very 
close relationship." 

The children born to the parents of this sketch, Charles and 
Allison Alahaffey, were : 

663 ^Rebecca Mahaffey,- m. James McClune. 

664 ^Andrew Mahaffey.- 

665 ^Thomas Mahaffey.- 

666 *James A. Mahafifey,- m. Elizabeth J. Wareham. 

667 ^ohn MahafTey,- m. Elizabeth . 

663 ^REBECCA MAHAFFEY,- (Charles MahafTfey.^) 
Rebecca Mahafifey, only daughter of Charles and 

Allison Mahafifey, married James McClune, who some time in the 
'40's moved his family to West Virginia, not far distant from 
Martinsburg, where he engaged in farming. A short time after 
the Civil War he died, leaving a wife and an only child: 

72 Mahaffey Descendants 

668 ^ Sarah Allison McClune,^ who married Jacob Shil- 
ling, and resided near Darkesville, West Va. ; 
to this union no children were born. It has oc- 
curred to the writer that this would be an oppor- 
tune time to establish the Christian name of her 
Some years ago her older sister visited in the home of Sarah 
McClune Shilling. Upon her return home she brought as a gift, 
from the Virginia cousins, a small silk shawl, to be given the 
author of this sketch, she being singled out because she bore the 
name of her great-grandmother, Mary ; word was also sent that 
the shawl should remain in the MahafTey family, as it had been 
brought to this country by the Mahaffeys from Ireland. The 
shawl is of odd design (green in it of course) and very highly 
prized by its owner. We therefore presume hereafter to write 
Charles and Mary Allison Mahaffey. 

Sarah Allison Shilling is described as being a very large 
woman, of a very kind disposition, and a true Irish face. 

664 2 ANDREW MAHAFFEY,^ (Charles Mahafifey.) 

Andrew Mahaffey, son of Charles and Mary Allison Ma- 
haffey, left the Cumberland Valley some time in the early period 
of the last century ; his whereabouts has been entirely lost. It is 
known however that he had once located in the state of Ohio, as 
letters had been found which had been written by members of his 
family to their cousin Mary Ann Zeigler, daughter of Andrew's 
brother James A. 

These letters had been destroyed by the nephew of Mary Ann 
Zeigler's husband, when he settled up the estate of his late uncle, 
not knowing they would be of any value. We trust, however, 
that some of the Ohio Mahaffeys will some day prove their 
ancestry to originate from this said Andrew. Or possibly some 
of the Illinois or Indiana family of same name, as he might have 
moved farther west at a later period. These letters had been 
written previous to 1865, at which time occurred the death of 
Mary Ann Zeigler. 

665 ^THOMAS MAHAFFEY,- (Charles.) 

Thomas Mahaffey, son of Charles and Mary Allison Ma- 
haffey, who remained a bachelor, spent his entire life in the 

Mahaffey Descendants 73 

vicinity of his birth. Is described as being a very large man, very 
tall, with kindly eyes and a jovial, talkative disposition. 

He owned a farm adjoining his brother James, where he and 
his mother lived, she dying a short time before he. He is buried 
at Carlisle, Pa., as is also his mother. 

666 "JAMES A. MAHAFFEY,= (Charles.^ 

James A. Mahaftey, son of Charles and Mary Allison Ma- 

haffey, was born Aug. 4, 1793 ; died, 1870; was married to Eliza- 
beth Johnston Wareham, about 1827, who was born April 6, 1806; 
died Nov. 26, 1848. 

James Mahaffey was a farmer, a man beloved by old and 
young in the community in which he lived. The most strict ob- 
servance of the Presbyterian faith was practiced in his home. He 
and his wife worshiped in the old Presbyterian church at Carlisle, 
Pa., it being told by one of his sons that when they came home 
from church the meal was ate that had been prepared the day 
previous, following which every one sat down and read or passed 
the day in a quiet manner. 

James Mahaffey was a tall, sparely built man, with small, 
keen, black eyes ; a whig in politics, prominent in debating so- 
cieties; a son said, "Father would attend all the debating societies 
far and near, would take us little chaps along; we, of course, 
would fall asleep and fall from the bench in the old school-house, 
to the floor ; then he w^ould say, 'Boys, I will never take you 
again, but 'never,' never came. One of his expressions, when ad- 
dressing a gathering was, 'I wunder,' now I guess you all 
wunder !' " 

Elizabeth Wareham was of English parentage. Her grand- 
father, when emigrating to America, left his native land with his 
wife, a small son and daughter. When the vessel was out for a 
few days, the wife died suddenly and was buried at sea. After 
landing, the father followed his wife in death in a short time, thus 
leaving the orphan boy and girl to be reared in the home of 
strangers. The girl was reared in the home of the grandfather 
of James G. Blain. This orphan girl, of course, was the mother 
of Elizabeth Johnston Wareham, who married James A. Ma- 
hafiFey, and to them were born a family of eight:

667 '^^JOHN MAHAFFEY,^ (Charles Mahaffey.^) 

John Mahaffey, youngest child of Charles and Mary Allison 
Mahaffey, was born Sept. 25, 1801 ; died Nov. 2, 1854 ; was mar- 
ried to Elizabeth , who was born March 9, 1803 ; died, 

Aug. 21, 1881. 

John Mahaffey was a farmer. Some time after his marriage 
he moved from his home township to one farther west in the same 
county, where he resided for quite a time. Later he removed to 
the state of West Virginia, where he lived until his death. His 
descendants are living in that part of the state to-day. His family

669 MOHN PHILIP MAHAFFIE,' (James A.r Charles Ma- 

John Philip Mahaffie, eldest child of James A. and Elizabeth 
W'areham Mahaffey, was born Jan. 22, 1828 ; married to Susannah 
Elizabeth Ensminger, who was born Nov. 11, 1832; died Nov. 11, 
1908. He died Feb. 19, 1907. Both buried at Renovo, Pa. 

John P. Mahaffie led a rather adventurous life; in the year 
1849 he left home, joining a wagon train for Missouri. They en- 
countered many hardships, principally savage tribes of Indians, 
who killed off man and beast. After receiving two arrow wounds, 
and a load of buck shot, which he carried to his grave, (traveling 
many miles before he could have the arrow heads removed and 
the wounds dressed), the few remaining party arrived on foot 
(their mules all having died from drinking from an alkili stream) 
in the coveted ''gold fields" of California. 

John Mahaffie was soon stricken with rheumatism ; his 
doctors advised him to go to South America, which he did. After 
spending several years in that country he returned to his native 
land by way of Cape Horn. While aboard vessel he was stricken 
with yellow fever, and was quarantined for some time at Lima, 
Peru. He was quite a linguist, speaking seven languages. He 
followed the pursuit of a carpenter the greater part of his life. 
Was a most lovable man ; the last several years of his life was 
spent in blindness. Was consistent in the Lutheran Church, as 
was his faithful wife, who bore him the following children :

Mary Ann Mahaffey, only daughter of James A. and Eliza-

1865, from diphtheria; was married by the Rev. Hoffman, of 
Carlisle, Pa., to Daniel Zeigler, a well known vetenary surgeon, 
Jan. 27, 1853. 

Her mother dying when she was but fifteen years of age, 
brought the cares of a mother upon her shoulders at a very early 
age, which she assumed until she married ; the home of her father 
was then broken up and the smaller children were separated, 
which accounts for so little knowledge of the early ancestry, the 
older members of the family all being dead, the younger ones can- 
not recall. 

Mary Ann Mahaffey was a very kind, Christian woman, even 
though children were not born to her they were always in her 
home. Her younger brother, and a neice of her husband, shared 
its comforts, and the care of a mother. She died at an early age, 
and is buried at Carlisle, Pa. Her husband surviving her many

Thomas Mahaffey, third son of James A. and Elizabeth 
Wareham Mahaffey, was born July 23, 1835 ; died Jan. 2, 1856. 
Was a carpenter by trade. 

He left home, securing work at Harrisburg, Pa. Displaying 
talent for the violin, he became a noted violinist ; accepting a posi- 
tion in a museum at New Orleans at a fine salary, was taken ill 
while there, thinking of home and friends no doubt, he started 
homeward, getting as far north as St. Louis, where he died ; was 
buried by a friend and his effects sent home, among which was his 
beloved violin. This famous instrument is still in the possession 
of his brother Stuart, whose grandson Stuart Lowry, of Salt Lake

sweet-toned instrument. 



James Andrew Mahaffie, fifth child of James A. and Eliza-

1913; was married Oct. 15, 1865, to Maria Catherine Whitcomb, 
of Boiling Springs, Pa. They were married at Gettysburg, Pa. 

James Mahafifie followed the pursuits of a huckster the most 
of his life, his early manhood being spent on the farm. Shortly 
after his marriage he located in Harrisburg, Pa., where he resided 
the balance of his life and reared the following family:

Charles Mahaffey.^ 

Stuart Wareham Mahaffey, fifth son of James A. and Eliza- 
beth Wareham IVIahafifey, was born June 22, 1841 ; was married 
Feb. 22, 1868, by the Rev. Adam Hollinger, to Susannah Harbold, 
daughter of George and Mary Trimmer Harbold, born Feb. 12, 
1846 ; died Feb. 13, 1886. 

Stuart W. Mahaffey spent his boyhood on the farm ; later 

78 Mahaffey Descendants 

learned photography, the chemicals not agreeing with him, he 
learned the trade of a miller, which he followed for more than 
forty years, being well known throughout the State as an expert 
miller. He is a man of a kind and generous disposition, respected 
by his fellow man. 

His wife died at the age of forty years, leaving seven chil- 
dren ; she was a woman of ingenuity and spirit, of a jolly disposi- 
tion and one of the most pleasant reminiscences of the writer of 
this sketch, is of how she would gather her little ones about her 
knee during the twilight hour and fill their anxious ears with 
wondrous tales of the Civil War, and of her girlhood pranks, 
which were most amusing; she was truly a good "story teller," 
and beside a consistent Christian woman, devoted to her chosen 
faith, the German Baptist, of which church her husband is also a 
member. She was a good mother and sadly missed by her family 
and a host of friends. 

Following her death Stuart W. Mahafifey married the second 
time, Mary Troup Firestone, Sept. 20, 1894, who was born July 5, 
1855 ; to this union there was no issue.

only child to mourn her loss :

An apology old Cumberland 

I fear you owe the Clan, 
Since from your branch a poetess 

Inflicts her verse on man. 
Yet each has sent its talent forth. 

To fill their sphere in life ; 
Professions of all sorts we find 

Beside the humble wife. 
So now we trust the Clan will bear 

With patience what you give. 
The talent of this poetess 

Though small, perhaps may live 
To speak of how old Cumberland 

Shared in this work, so dear; 
Perpetuated to the Clan, 

And filled its humble sphere.

739 GUY MEHAFFIE, progenitor of the Perry Co. Mehaffies, 
and his wife, Margaret, or "Peggy" Hamilton, were natives of Ire- 
land. The date of their emigration is not known, nor have we any 
history to confirm the fact that they were married previous to their 
coming to America. In reading the history of the early settlers 
of Cumberland County, we find numerous families by the name 
of Hamilton, who were of Scotch-Irish descent, same as the 
Mahaffey family, both originally coming from Scotland and set- 
tling in Ireland in the earlier centuries. Possibly, Guy Mehaffie 
married after his emigration to America. 

They settled along the banks of Shermans Creek, Perry Co., 
(then a part of Cumberland County), which in those days was a 
dense forest. The Indians roved at will, making the days fear- 
ful and the nights hideous with their war whoops. 

There were but few settlers at that time, the log cabins being 
several miles apart. In the year 1755 we read of the murder of 
the "Woolcomer" family, who were the nearest neighbor of our 
subject. They were eating their evening meal, consisting of mush 
and milk, when an Indian appeared in the doorway ; being asked 
to partake of the meal he replied he "came for scalps" not food, 
a young son twelve years of age made his escape through a back 
window, giving the alarm to the nearest fort ; when the soldiers 
arrived the next morning they found the entire family murdered. 
Thus we date the settling of Guy Mehaffie in Perry Co. from the 
date of this incident, he probably locating here several years pre- 

Guy Mehaffie was a weaver by trade, and he and his wife 
were God-fearing people. Under adverse circumstances, they 
reared the following family of three children : 

740 ^Margaret Mehaffie,^ b. 1755, m. John Smiley. 

741 ==Thomas Mehaffie,- b. 1766, m. Kitty Colvin. 

742 ^Ruth Mehaffie,- m. John Murphy. 

We might add to the above data concerning the last mentioned 
child Ruth Mehaffie, who married John Murphy, that a grand- 

84 Mahaf'fe;y Desceindants 

daughter is living in Carlisle, Pa., by name of Ruth Murphy Glass, 
and possibly many more direct descendants of this third child of 
our subject. 

740 ^MARGARET MEHAFFIE,- (Guy Mehaffie.^) 

Margaret Mehaffie, daughter of Guy and Margaret Hamilton 
Mehafifie, was born 1755, died Oct. 15, 1830, she was married some 
time in the 70's of 1700, to John Smiley, who was born in 1742 
and died in 1840. John Smiley was the son of Thomas Smiley, 
who is buried at the Meeting House Springs graveyard, near 
Carlisle, Pa. Thomas Smiley had five sons and one daughter. 
George, Samuel and John settled within one mile of each other 
near Shermansdale, Pa., by the Shermans Creek. Thomas settled 
in the western part of the State near Pittsburgh, and William set- 
tled west of the Tuscarora mountains. The daughter, Sallie, 
married a Mr. Sharron, and lived in the western part of the state. 

John and Margaret Mehafifie Smiley reared a large family,, 
he dividing his farms between his two sons, William and John. 
The land granted to William is where Shermansdale is now lo- 
cated, and the farms to the north and east embrace the holdings 
of John, which all told, contained 250 acres.

there by their grandchildren about 1876.

Second Generation 

741 ^THOMAS MEHAFFIE,- (Guy Mehaffie.^) 

Thomas Mehaffie, only son of Guy and Margaret Hamilton 
Mehaffie, was born June 5, 1766, died Dec. 20, 1853. He married 
Catherine Colvin, of Jersey Shore, Pa., who was born 1769, and 
died Sept. 15, 1848. They belonged to the Quaker church. 

We are told that Thomas was a very large man, as was also 
his wife. He was a very quiet and of a kindly nature, and 
highly respected in the locality in which he lived. 

The writer was told by a grandson that he could recall him, 
when a small child and taken to see his grandfather, as sitting 
in a large arm. chair with a tall cane in his hands, when told who 
the child was he patted him on the head saying, "Is this one of 
Hamilton's boys." 

Being of a very lenient disposition he would frequently re- 
mark to his boys during the mothers absence, "Laddies ! Laddies ! 
when your mother comes home she will come "doon" on you like 
a "flax Brake," so evidently the mother was the sterner parent. 

Thomas Mehaffie lived on the old homestead of his father, 
which was also nearby the farm where his sister Margaret Me- 
haflie Smiley lived. To Thomas and "Kitty" Colvin were eight 
children bom :

They were among the first settlers of the county. 

Several of the brothers were employed as government spies 

at the time of the French and Indian War, and some were at the 

battle in which Braddock was defeated. 

John Harbison, in command of the company, married one 

of the sisters. She and her child were killed by the Indians. 

Two of the brothers, John and Andy, went to Ohio in 1820.

Note. — This record is made up from data furnished, but in 
some respects it lacks conformity. 

It would be more reasonable to suppose that those who took 
part in the French and Indian Wars were of the generation of the 
first IVIahaffey. With a few apparent discrepancies set aside, we 
could merge this family into the family which came from Wash- 
ington county, Maryland. This family is also likely "one" with 
the No. 2 line.

Mahaffey Descendants 129 


1413 ^\LEXANDER MAHAFFEY,^ the progenitor of the 
Washington county, Pa., and of one branch of the Ohio 
Mahaffeys, was born in Washington county, Maryland, 
about 1765. 

Two generations preceded him in this locality. His father's 
and grandfather's Christian names have not been preserved. It 
is believed by his descendants that his Mahaffey forbears were of 
Scotch-Irish extraction. He was a Whig, and of Protestant 
faith. He prophesied that slavery would bring on one of the 
worst wars that the world had ever known. From his own lips 
the following record has been preserved : 

"When the Revolutionary War was in progress the people 
were greatly excited over the killing of the Colonists, and de- 
struction of property by the British. There was a call for the 
people to defend their country. Father took his team and wagon, 
and taking two of his neighbors, beside two of his sons, one old 
enough for service, whose name is not preserved, the other my- 
self, to bring back the team, we started for the front. (Name of 
place not mentioned.) 

"Before I could get away my team and myself were pressed 
into service to haul provisions, ammunition, etc., and it was two 
weeks before I reached home. I never saw my brother again, 
but father returned and lived the remainder of his life in Wash- 
ington county, Maryland." 

After the death of the father, Alexander was appointed ad- 
ministrator of the estate. He fell heir to some slaves, as did also 
his brother William. 

About this time, near the close of the century, they moved 
to Washington county, Pa. Alexander freed his slaves, and Wil- 
liam took his and moved to Tennessee. He is supposed to be the 
progenitor of those of the name in the far south, unless otherwise 
accounted for. 

Alexander married Margaret Kirkpatrick, who was born 
1775. About 1820 they moved to Richland county, Ohio, where 

M. D.— 9 

130 Mahaffey Descendants 

he purchased a farm and resided until the death of his wife in 
1844. He then made his home with his daughter "Polly," Mrs. 
Rodgers, near Amity, Ohio, where he died in 1851, and is buried 
beside his wife in Mt. Zion cemetery, thirteen miles from Mt. 
Vernon, Ohio. 

He spelled his name "Mahafifey," and it is believed that his 
forbears also spelled it the same way. He was a man of a fair 
education, and was supreme ruler in his household, and never 
allowed a child to disobey him. He whipped a son much larger 
than himself for an act of disobedience. 

There were twelve children born to Alexander and Margaret 
Kirkpatrick Mahaffey. The sons were large men and gifted with 
considerable talent for music. Their names were : 

1414 ^Rebecca Mahaflfey,* m. Helms, and had seven 


1415 -Mary (Polly) Mahaffey,* m. Rodgers, and 

had four children. 

1416 ^Margaret Mahaffey,* m. Elijah Carson, had seven

Joseph Mahaffey, son of Alexander and Margaret Kirk- 
patrick Mahaffey, was born in Washington county, Pa., 1807, and 
lived there until he served his time at the blacksmith trade. 

He located in Harrison county, Ohio, where he married 
Letitia Wells, who was born 1808. 

He was a pioneer of Knox county, locating there in 1831 or 
'32. He was a man of high morals, and always ready to defend 
the right under all circumstances. He died 1872 and his wife 

This account of how he "licked" the Knox county bully is 
told in his own language: "One day as I was talking with a 
friend on the street a large man, unknown to me, driving a team 
of horses, drove his horses almost upon me, commanding me, 
with an oath, to get out of his way or he would drive over me. 

"I replied, 'I guess not.' He replied, with an oath that he 
would, and that I had insulted him once before any way, and 
jumped out of his wagon and rushed at me. I told him he was 
mistaken in his man ; that I had never seen him before. He told 
me that I was a d — n liar, and I told him if he said that again 
I would 'muzzle' him. He attempted to repeat it, but before he 
could do so I did 'muzzle' him, and he went to the grass. 

"Having on my best clothes I attempted to remove my coat, 
when a party from behind caught me by the skirt of my new spike 
tail coat and tore it up the back to my neck. I grabbed the party 
who tore my coat and threw him to the middle of the street, took 
off what was left of my coat and met the first party who was 
up and coming at me. I reached for his throat and in so doing 
I got my finger in his mouth. I twisted my thumb in his mouth, 
outside of his teeth and held him so tight he could not bite me, 
and 'By Molly' I sent in a few in the short ribs, and every time 
I hit him I could feel him wilt. 

Mahaffey Descendants 133 

"I let go of him and he went down in a pile, and to my sur- 
prise I learned I had 'licked' the 'Bully' of Knox county without 
getting a scratch, or becoming angry, because I was positive that 
he was mistaken. 

"He became my friend and one of my best customers."

David Washington Mahaffey, fifth child of Alexander and

young his mother was very ill with typhoid fever. The paternal 
grandparents came and took the baby home and kept him until 
his mother recovered. They brought the baby back and returned 
home, but the next day came for him, as they became so attached 
to him that they could not live without him. The parents con- 
sented and the grandparents kept and reared him. 

In 1884 he went with his uncle, John E. Mahaffey, to Pawnee 
county, Kansas, but a year later returned to Ohio. He married 
September 1, 1887, Olive Janet Huston, who was born Jan. 8,

1605 Mahaffeys in Ireland, and 19th Century Emigrants to 

The Hterature of Ireland is filled with great collections of 
genealogies, some compiled before the time of St. Patrick, and 
continued until seventeenth century. 

These genealogies were checked every few years by the great 
convention Lara. After this ceased the Aenachs, or Fairs, con- 
tinued, at which time the genealogies of the chiefs were re- 

The Irish chieftain families meet in certain historical and 
semi-historical personages who lived several centuries before, or 
after Christ. But not content to going back to these founders 
the old genealogists strove to make the nobility of one family. 

They went on to the legendary Miled, his sons and uncle; 
Miled is supposed to be the leader of the first Gaels who entered 
Ireland. Three of his sons were Eremon, Ir and Eber, and his 
Uncle Ith. From these men are derived the great groups 
Eremonian, Irian, Eberian and Ithian families. 

The Emeronian families are the largest group and meet in 
the Arch King Eochaidh, who died about 379. From another son 
of Eochaidth, the archking Nial of the Nine Tostages, come the 
Northern Hy-Neils, or O'Neils, of Ulster, of whom there are 
three families ; those of Dungannon in Tyrone, Fews of Armagh, 
and Clanneboy in Antrim. Another son of Nial was Eoghan, 
who gave the name of Tyrone, Tir Eoghan, the Land of Eoghan. 

When Brian was archking he obliged the chiefs of the Clans 
to take the name of some ancestor as a family name. If he took 
his father's name he used the prefix Mac, meaning son of, if of a 
more remote ancestor they used O, which means grandson, or 
descendant of. Brian was Archking in 1002 (note this is copied 
from printed matter sent by Miss M. G. MahalTey, of Baltimore, 
Md., who is a descendant of Susan O'Neil, of Dungannon, Ire- 

The fact that the Mahaflfey's adopted a coat of arms as early 

148 Mahaffey Descendants 

as the 11th century goes to prove that they are of ancient lineage. 
We, however, do not know whether this was in Scotland or 

We have from good authority that they have been buried in 
Clonleigh Cemetery, in Ireland, from time immemorial (a long 
time), which would suggest that they might have been in Ireland 
even earlier than the 11th century. 

The strong impression is that they are of Scotch descent, 
although there is a legend to the effect that one "Bau Haffet" 
came over with William III. in 1688, making, if that were true, 
a strain of Dutch blood. In certain families this would be re- 
ceived with scorn, because all these years they have prided them- 
selves on that Scotch-Irish blood. However drop the Bau, and 
substitute Mac, and we have Mac Haffet, which could easily be 
corrupted in McHafifet, McHaffy, or Mahaffey. 

Be that as it may we will not strain our imaginations to that 
extent, but rest on the conviction that we are Scotch-Irish. They 
could have migrated from Scotland at any time, but it is likely 
that at the time of the Ulster Plantation, 1609-1612, they have 
found sufficient reason, especially among the poorer, or ambitious 
ones, for settling in Ireland. Those of the extreme north were 
doubtless among this number, and were the ancestors who are 
buried at Clonleigh, and took part in the defense of Londenberry 
when beseiged by King James in 1688, as one ot them died in 
sight of "home ten miles from Londenberry." 

We also have record of them at Lifford, in Donegal, at Stra- 
bane, just across the river, in Tyrone; in Lurgan, Cavan and 
Down, also Dublin and Belfast. From family traditions, inherent 
traits, family names, and certain striking resemblances one can 
almost with certainty select the place of origin. The members of 
the Clan are welcome to their choice, except where it is already 
proven, as in the case with the nineteenth century emigrants to 
this country and those now living in Ireland.

1650 3JAMES MAHAFFEY," (James,^ James,^ James.^) 

James Mahaffey, third child of James and Margaret Gal- 
braith Mahaffey, was born in 1831, married Sept. 18, 1855, to 
Jane Patterson, who was born Oct. 4, 1835. He died in 1913. 
James Mahaffey was a retired banker, and much beloved by all 
who knew him. To him the "Mahaffey Clan" owe many interest- 
ing details as to the "Irish Mahaffeys." He took great interest 
in the reunions, and always regretted he was unable to attend. 

He was an invalid for some time before his death. In a 
letter written in 1911 he positively states that he believed himself 
to be a relative of the Mahaffeys who settled on the Susquehanna. 
He had heard his father and his great Uncle "Jack" discuss this 
matter. Uncle "Jack" lived at Drumore Parrish of Lifford, 
county Donegal, Ireland, weighed about 250 pounds, was very red 
in the face. He had a son Minion, who was the tallest man in 
the parrish. In 1897 there was a grandson Minion, living on the 
old homestead. 

He also wrote, "Tradition has it that some of our ancestors 
were defenders of the city of Londenderry, when besieged by 
King James in 1688; some were killed, some were starved to 
death, and one died from exhaustion in sight of home." "A 
sampler worked in different colored silk hung over the mantel- 
piece in my boyhood home. The inscription was, "Our Faith and 
Our Fireside ;" "No Surrender, Meg 1688." The word "Meg" is 
an abbreviation of roaring Meg, a cannon that was mounted on 
the walls of the city of Londenderry, and made a terrific noise, 
which struck terror to the heart of King James and his followers. 
The early Mahaffeys were Episcopalians, with a few Presby- 
terians. They have been buried in the old cemetery at Clonleigh 
from time immemorial." 

He further states that his father had the family tree neatly 
written out on a sheet of parchment. (This record was obtained 
by him in a law suit he had in regard to a piece ot freehold prop- 
erty), and was written back to 1688, and was lost m the move to

1690 An "Irish" American Chapter. American representatives 
of this family emigrated to this country about 1881. 

The settlement of Mehaffeys in West Down, Ireland, was 
begun about the beginning of the 17th century. Possibly one of 
the clan came from Scotland during the Ulster Plantation, and 
settled here under grants, at, or about the same time as the others 
settled in Donegal and Antrim counties. 

This wing of the Clan spelling their name "Mehaffey." There 
were three known grandsons, or great-grandsons of the first 
founder, and they all died between the years 1830 and 1880, 
namely : 

1691 Joseph Mehaffey.3 

1692 -John Mehafifey.^ 

1693 =^William Mehafifey.* 

There is also mention made of two unknown brothers of this 
family, there having been five brothers in all. Many daughters 
were among the descendants, and have intermarried so that many 
of the present generation can claim lineage to the first Mehaffey 
settler. This settlement was made at Loughbrickland, (see illus- 
tration in book) county Down, 24 miles south of the city of Bel- 
fast, and three miles from the market and banking town of Ban- 
bridge. It was at this village where King William III. encamped 
with his troops on the way to the Boyne, June 20th, 1690. 

It was near here where the battle of "Dolly's Brae," was 
fought July 12th, 1849, against the rebels. 

There are many of the ancient landmarks to be found in this 
district. There remains a monument of three large, long, almost 
square stones, in the town of "Greenan," supposed to be from the 
Danes time of conquest, and known as the three sisters of 
"Greenan." Between the villages of Scarva and Gilford can be 
found the ruins of Tally-Ho-Castle, built by the Danes in the Uth 

The Ulster Plantation, frequently referred to in several pre- 

Mahaffev Descendants 157 

vious chapters, consists of 511,465 acres of land in the provnice 
of Ulster. This land became vested in the crown owing to the 
forfeitures under James 1st, and was divided among English and 
Scotch Protestant subjects, as chose to settle there — dates, 1609- 
1612. The colony settled in the extreme north, chiefly in Antrim 
and Londonderry counties, but especially around the cities (now) 
Londonderry and Coleraine. receiving their charter in 1613. 

History again tells us of the re-colonization between 1683 and 
1690, during the reformation, when the last Stuart King, James 
II, was removed from the throne, and died an exile in France 
after suffering defeat at Derry, Aughrin, Oldbridge and the 
Boyne, under William III. in 1801, to settle the Irish rebellion, 
which began May 4, 1798. costing about 170.000 lives. It was 
more probable that during the reformation period (1688-90) our 
ancestors came from Scotland and made settlement in Ulster.

When clinging Shamrock ceases 

To love the Irish soil.

Letters of Interest to Clan with the Genealogies of 

the Writers 

1734 ^Doctor John Pentland Mahaffey, of Dublin, Ireland. 

A few years ago a letter was received by the President of 
the Mahaffey Clan from Dr. John Pentland Mahaffey, of Dublin 

Doctor Mahaffey is a man of much learning, an authority on 
Greek, and an author of no small note. He has held for years 
the Greek professorship at Trinity College, DubHn. Twenty 
years ago he was made Vice provost of the University. He has 
received every degree and title a man of learning deserves, and 
when last heard from, although past his eightieth year, was active 
in his duties. He made a lecture tour in this country some years 

He writes: "I cannot at a moment's notice go back further 
than my great-grandfather, who was a landed proprietor, living 
at Foxhall, near Killygarden, in South county Donegal. Most of 
a large property had been let on lease for corn, receiving a mere 
head rent per acre. These head rents were recently redeemed by 
the tenants under the present land laws. 

Two or three town lands will remain Creaghdro, Broadpath, 
and Black Repentance. This grandfather whose Christian name 
I cannot at the moment recall, had at least two sons : my grand- 
father, a parson and squire at Killygarden, and my grand uncle, 
Minion, a well-known barrister in Dublin. Both brothers married 
sisters of the Hone family. Minion left no children who sur- 
vived him. 

This generation, my grandfather and granduncle, were born 
about 1760 or 70. My father, Nathaniel Brindley, was born in 
1798, and was the oldest ; he had a brother James, who went as 
army surgeon to India and disappeared ; there was a son who be- 
came a lawyer of Billieborough, county Cavan, who is grand- 

Mahaffey Descendants 163 

father to Judge Mahaffey now in Meskaka ; also a daughter mar- 
ried to Frederick Moore, who left issue and has many grand- 
children ; and an unmarried daughter Eliza, who spent her later 
years at Billieborough, and emigrated with that family to Canada, 
where she died. 

A William Mahaffey, from the parrish Donoughmore, grad- 
uated M. D. in Glasgow about 1770. 

The family "Coat of Arms" appears on various pieces of fur- 
niture and family plate in my house. It is a mailed hand and an 
arm brandishing a broken spear, and I know by tradition that the 
motto was, "Factus non Victus," "Broken but not conquered." 
The family never took out a regular "Coat of Arms," i. e., never 
had it registered. 

Doctor Mahaffey states also that his line should be strict to 
spell the name "Mahaffy," that is the proper form. 

When W. T. Mahaffey and his son Leroy, visited Ireland in 
1909, they met Miss Rachel and Miss Elsie, the charming 
daughters of Doctor Mahaffy, and was highly elated over the 
cordial welcome they received. 

Doctor Mahaffy has two sons also, Arthur William, who has an 
heir, and Robert Rutland, a barrister in London, unmarried. 

1735 =^John Cieorge Mahaffey, No. 2, Acorn Villa, Belfast, 

"Extracts." "Early marriages and prolific families the 
rule." "The direct descendants of my grandfather were all born 
in the vicinity of Lurgan, a town of thirty miles south of Belfast." 

"We have this legend as to our family dated 1690" — "A Ma- 
haffey had a farm beside Strabane, Tyrone county. He died, 
leaving a wife and one son. He left his estate to his widow dur- 
ing her life, and after her death to his son. A second son was 
born after the father's death. The oldest son sent his son to 
Trinity College and educated him as a barrister, and later was 
known as "Croppy" Mahaft'ey, during the time of the Irish re- 

The second son, who took no part in his father's estate, be- 
came a farmer. He had three sons — James, William and Sam- 

.164 MAHAFifEY Desce:ndants 

uel. James and Samuel each had a son, the former being killed 
at the battle of Scringapatam, and the latter dying without issue. 
William had a son named James, who died June 14, 1849, 
aged 60 years. This James left five sons — William, George, 
John, Robert and James. 

^William Mahaffey, b. 1810, and d. 1894. 

^George Mahaffey, died early, leaving three sons, only one 
of whom had issue (three daughters.) 

^John Mahaffey, died in 1901, aged 83; had two sons, one 
a solicitor, William Irwin, in Belfast. 

*James Mahaffey, emigrated to Australia. 

^William Mahaffey, b. 1810, died 1894; was my grand- 
father and had five sons and daughters, some of 
of whom, or their issue, are in Toronto, Colgany 
and Nelson, Canada." 

Mr. John George Mahaffey, was born in 1861, is a prominent 
linen merchant of Belfast. He is our authority for the legend of 
the Dutch ancestor, and writes charming letters ; his compliment- 
ary tone would warrant us in thinking he had "kissed, not once, 
but many times, the famous Blarney stone." He had one son, 
who was born in 1886. 

1736 ^William Irwin Mahaffey. Extracts frorin William Irwin 
Mahaffey, Belfast, Ireland. 

"I observe your branch of the family have an 'e' in the sur- 
name. In my childhood days I remember my father had an 'e' 
in his name, but it was found that for generations previously, as 
was evidenced by the inscriptions upon the family tombstones in 
Lurgan, county Armagh, that the correct form was without the 
'e.' There are some families who insert the 'e.' 

"My father was James B. Mahaffy, and gave me a history 
back into the 18th century. The family early in that century lived 
in Strabane, county Tyrone. One of the sons came to Armagh 
and he was progenitor of the Lurgan Mahaffys. 

"I am the sole survivor of my father's and mother's family." 
William Irwin Mahaffy is a barrister in Belfast, Ireland.

Odds and Ends 

1737 ^Samuel Mahaffey, of No. 1429 East Montgomery St., 

Philadelphia, Pa., has this to say : 

"My father's name was John, and his father's name was 
William. My father came from northern part of Ireland when a 
small boy, and would be about ninty-five years old (1912.) 

"I have often heard him say he had many relatives in Penn- 
sylvania, but did not know where. His mother was buried in 
Philadelphia, Pa." 

1738 ^'Pearl Mahaffey, an Ohio branch : 

"I am the eldest daughter of John Wesley Mahaffey, of Mid- 
dletown, Ohio. I have been teaching French and German here in 
Bethany College, W. Va., for five years, coming here after my 
graduation in Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Sincerely, 

"Pearl Mahaffey.

1740 *John Mahaffey, of Philadelphia, Pa. (Received in 1912.) 

"My ancestors came from Scotland about two hundred years 

ago and settled in Ireland, county Down, near Belfast, where I 

was born. I came to Philadelphia when I was eighteen years of 

age. I am now forty. I am married and have five children.

"My great-great-grandfather, it is claimed, came from Scot- 
land about the time Lafayette came over to this country. My 
great-grandfather's name was Samuel ; grandfather's name was

Ohio, in 1912. Married Mary Emerson, also dead. 

"My father's name was Lawrence ; died 28 years ago, when I

1743 "Rev. J. Clyde Mahaffey, Torrington, Wyoming: 

The Rev. Clyde Mahaffey, writes: "My father was born in 
Brown county, Ohio. His father's name, I believe, was Andrew ; 
his mother's, before marriage, Black. Both his father and mother 
died in '48 or '49, of cholera, and he was sent to Illinois, with an 
older sister. We would be very glad indeed to know more of our 
people, and if we could be traced I would like to receive informa-

glad to hear from you more fully. Cordially,

'Tis a long lane indeed that hath no end, 

And with much patience this race was run ; 
Though weary at times my Clansmen, and friends, 

With endless labor the prize is won. 
This prize may not mean a great deal to all, 

Yet to some we know it will seem "dear" — 
'Twill prove a memorial each can recall 

A letter, or some face with a tear 
Of regret ; wherein they failed to respond. 

And of these will we surely not find 
One word. And some, too, of whom we were fond. 

This indifference is truly unkind. 
E'en though you have failed to help us complete, 

We have tried to o'ercome this neglect 
By including your name, perhaps, 'twill meet 

Your approval, and win our respect. 
Look over the list that concludes our work. 

Read its pages from beginning to end — 
May yours not be found 'mongst those who did shirk, 

May Clan kinship and Clan friendship blend. 
Think you we've not labored ? nay you are wrong — 

And possibly could we have forseen, 
You would not have found our faces, nor song. 

Who descend from the Island of "Green." 
In conclusion we trust that each one will find, 

Our history of interest, and we pray — 
The links in the chain of clanship may bind 

Many hearts. And form friendships for aye. 
Perhaps this work may awaken some thought — 

Perhaps some dormant talent be stirred — 
Be that as it may — your kinship is sought, 

'Waken, mem'ry not causing eyes to be blurred. 
If some are o'erlooked, resent not the slight. 

For the task was stupendous, indeed. 
We aimed to do justice, give each one their right — 

And conclude by wishing you all "God-speed."
