William McGary1

ID#1639, b. about 1785
Father: not yet identified.
Mother: not yet identified. Birth: It is estimated that an unidentified person (either unknown or still living) was born about 1785 based on the following rationale: He appears in the 1840 U.S. Census as being of "age 50 and under 60" which would indicate a birth between 1780 and 1790. I have selected a mid-point of 1785 until I can come up with a more exact date.2
Birth place: Pennsylvania.3

William married Sarah (unknown).1
