The first definitive document for Harry McClenaghan is the 1880 census shown below; however, other records for what appear to be this family are found in Lancaster Co., PA in earlier census documents. This researcher believes that the documents below (1860 & 1870 census records) are for our Harry McClenagahn's family and that his father is Robert McClenaghan, son of Robert and Mary McClenaghan, who were born in Ireland. With that in mind, one can find an immigration arrival record for Robert McClenaghan: from Philadelphia Passenger Lists, 1800-1945, dated January 24, 1853 on the ship Florida in the port of Philadelphia coming from Liverpool: Robert McClanagan (28 - Ireland), Mary McClanagan (28 - Ireland), John McClanagan (7 - Ireland), James McClanagan (3 - Ireland), and Charles McClanagan (Infant - Ireland). They are all listed as "Laborer" for occupation.
