My MGGF John Stewart McClure was born Apr. 22, 1846, supposedly Bloomington, IL, but may have been OH, married Jennie unk loc unk date unk. I am trying to find any information about his siblings or parents. Per family lore, he was the first of his McClure line born on American soil, his father having emigrated from Ireland. I do not even know from where in Ireland, nor whether or not his father married before or after his emigration. Family lore has it "we" were "never Catholic" and that we are "Scotch-Irish" on that side of my family. I am wondering if any Stewart women married a McClure man before/after his immigration to U.S. that anyone knows of. John named his only daughter to survive to adulthood Elva, his oldest son Thomas, and my MGF Harry Grover, if these are any clues. Thanks for any leads.
