Research notes for Abraham Shannon and the relationship to his purprted father John Shannon Indiana had state cenus 1807 and 1853 and 1857

  • It is thought that John went from Scotland to (Virginia? to) Kentucky (to Indiana?)

After serving in the War of 1812, he accepted a land bounty for land in Indiana. He also could have purchased it as part of the Harrison Land Act.

  • There is a John Shannon that migrated to Indiana in 1818, but there are no other family names, or country of origin.Ancestry Record 7486 #1193756 Mindy, is this a migration from another countrt, or could it be KY
  • There are a 11 land records for what appear to be 5 unique John Shannons in Indiana. 1 from KY, the other 4 from elsewhere in IN.

going to add a table here of john shannon land records from above and where they come from in each of tge original images.

This 1818 record shows John Shannon from Shelby County Kentucky https://glorecords.blm.gov/ConvertedImages/CV_Patent_0038-050.PDF Another record near it is for purchasing the other 1/4 of that section of land, so he likely had the north half, if this is the same person. there are 4 records in 1818, which seem to be for the same settler from KY.
