Lynn - I am a McMahen. Born in Melbourne,
Australia. I have checked out this name in Ireland (Co. Cork) and was told that there are none with this spelling (ie. "en") and that there may have been an error in transcription when the family emigrated to
Australia. Where do you live? My grandfather's name was Gilbert McMahen. It is very rare to find someone with this spelling.

Jenny,
I live in Texas. Think you may be right about the spelling of name. My grandfather Wm. McMahen died in 1907, when my father was 2 yrs. old. Great-grandfather, Wm H McMahen was thought to be from Georgia. Have very little info on McMahen line. Glad to get any info share any info I have. Thanks

Hi - that is interesting. I am asking my father Noel McMahen for details of his family - names, dates, etc. Did you know there is a McMahen's Hog Farms in Arkansas? I wrote to them but they have not contacted me.

Lynn - I have some more for you. Great grandfather WILLIAM GEORGE McMAHEN married MATILDA SAUNDERS - children Gilbert, Maude, Elsie, Ebenezer, Peter, Alfred. All born and died in Victoria, Australia. My father, Noel, is the son of Gilbert. Noel was born in 1926 so count back to get the dates of Wm and Matilda. I dont know where they were born.
Keep me informed. Jenny

Jenny - are you a Jenny McMahen too in Texas?
My great grandfather was a William McMahen - married a Matilda Saunders. It is only now that I realize that you are a jenny too. So many jenny's posted up I just assumed it was me! It does probably seem unlikely that we, as australians have a link to the USA....it is just an odd spelling and therefore not many of us. we just always assumed that our great grandparents went down there directly from Ireland but could have been in USA too.
What else about you? I am married to an American and living in Singapore - age 45 **#@$!
