McPherson, John

as compiled by Lowell S. Thomas

These individuals are descendants of John McPherson, Midshipman in the Continental Navy. They and their line can become members of the DAR. Please E-mail me if you are interested in this connection. I just found this line from my ggggGranfather John McPherson. Any ideas you have on the Snyder's would be appreciated.
Regards,
Lowell
I am from the line of John II McPherson. It appears as Joseph and Sarah moved, after John died, to NY, and then to Warrick County, IN.
