  EDWARD MAHAN was born in 1812 in Ireland, and came to America in 1831, landing in Quebec after a perilous voyage of five weeks and four days.  His father, Thomas, came to America about eighteen months afterwards, and at once came to Ohio where his son resided in Trumbull county.  Here he remained several years, then went to Guernsey county, Ohio, where he died in 1841.  There were nine children in his family, five boys and four girls.  Six of the children came to this country.  Mrs. Mahan died in Bristol some years after the death of Mr. Mahan.  Mr. Edward Mahan has always lived in Liberty township since 1831, with the exception of eighteen months in Guernsey county.  He learned the brickmakers' trade and followed this for over thirty years, then went upon the farm where we now find him.  He was married in 1835 to Miss Lydia McFarland, daughter of William McFarland, of Coitsville, Mahoning county.  They have had twelve children, all of whom are living and are the joy of their parents in their old age.  Mr. and Mrs. Mahan are members of the Methodist church and are good citizens.
