John McElhaney1,2

M, ID# 8190, (1771 - 1840)
Father:William McElhaney (1736 - 1801)
Mother:Mary Cunningham (c 1741 - a 1801)
     John McElhaney was born in 1771 at Botetourt Co, Virginia. He was the son of William McElhaney and Mary Cunningham. John McElhaney married Margaret Hannah Bowen, daughter of SGT Henry Bowen and Ann Cunningham, c 1790 at Augusta Co, Virginia. John McElhaney died in 1840 at Madison Co, Arkansas.
      John McElhaney and his wife Hannah Margaret Bowen lived in Grainger, TN at least during 1798 - 1802 according to Grainger County Court Records. By 1819 John moved to White Co, TN (or perhaps the Grainger Co lines shifted) where that year John and two of his sons were ejected from their rental property. In 1825 John declared the equivalent of our current form of bankruptcy. John and a Henry McElhaney, possibly his son, are listed separately on the 1825 White Co, TN Tax List prepared 1 Jan 1826. About 1831 John left Tennessee with much of his extended family for Madison Co, AR.

McElhaney family research is complicated by incorrect reporting of John McElhaney's 1751 birth location attributed to Overton, White Co, TN, which did not exist when he was born. Establishment of counties in the TN northeast included: Hawkins Co in 1786, Grainger Co in 1796, and White Co in 1806, thus White Co did not exist when John McElhaney was reportedly born there. Overton as a town does not appear in these counties, and Overton as a TN county was created further west in 1806. Furthermore primary records were destroyed by Union forces when county courthouses were burned during the Civil War. Based on the non-existence of the locations at the time of his birth, it was presumed John was born in Virginia where their families lived during that era.
