Biographical sketch

JOHN McMAHON, the grandfather of Robert G. McMahon and father of William McMahon, served in the Colonial Army of Virginia, fighting Indians in the mid-1770s (Livingston Journal 6/9/1876). Later, John McMahon was a Lieutenant in the Rangers during the American Revolution (King 1935), while residing in Augusta County, Virginia. In 1779 John McMahon received 50 acres for served in Capt. Peter Hog's Rockingham Rangers during the French and Indian Wars (Wayland 1949:54, 83, 133-134). In about 1812 the McMahon Tavern (also known as Washington House) operated at the corner of Main Street and Courthouse, at the SE corner of the public square in Harrisonburg. A large sign of George Washington in uniform with his hand on a cannon marked the tavern. The local Masons ate supper here after service and parage on St. John's Day. The tavern burned in 1870. This site later became the First National Bank.
