Cheryl Jones- Have you seen this e-book in Google books about the McCluer family? YOu can download it as epub or pdf for easier reference. It does mention McCluers in Blount Co, TN and more. As with anything, use it as a guide for clues, and try to verify anything you find.

My McCluers went from Ohio, to IL, KS, MO. Before Ohio I have only seen clues they were in Virginia. This book hasn't exactly helped me yet, but if I can ever link up with the earlier individuals in it, it will be more helpful for me.

I've gotten back to a Samuel McCluer (1765-1833) and he died in Ohio. I believe his wife was Sarah Allen, but know nothing about her family.  If anyone has any info to help, I would appreciate it. I did 'find' Samuel and Sarah's graves in Richland County Ohio.

Hi everyone - just wanted to introduce myself. I am researching the McLarens from my mom's side of the tree. Her ancestors originated in Scotland and settled in Owen Sound, Ontario. Coincidentally, I now live only 1 hour south of Owen Sound and have found many old graves in the cemetery there. Looking forward to chatting with all of you.

Hello everyone!

I'm researching the McCLURE line in Blount County, Tennessee. My earliest ancestor I've found is Harvey B. McClure born circa 1825 in Blount Co. and married Mary Catherine Phelps in 1848.

I'm researching the Lawries/Lauries of the Borders areas - mainly Chirnside. Many moved on to England, Australia and New Zealand and at least one great aunt, Margaret Lawrie, went to Canada some time around the 1920s or 1930s. My earliest Lawrie is James born about 1750 and the latest my Grandmother, Jane Lawrie (later Gow) who died in the 1950s.

Select the option on the List site to receive the post as emails. I hardly ever go there but I get all the information. Robert will include his email in the post. I do not hand out emails, but I will tell you where to look. :)

Oh I do definitely follow both maternal and paternal lines!! I used to be involved in the Scotch-Irish of Canada rootsweb list, but it's an awfully slow group.
I've posted to the McClaren list once or twice way back when and have kept the same email address since 1994, but have never received any replies. A lady once contacted me some time ago from the genforum board but her McClearn were from PA. Not too many McClearns out there.

BTW my cousin, a published author Lola R. (McClure) Eagle wrote a book called "The Music of Her Life-story of a Dakota Daughter" which is a collection of stories about her mother Margaret (b. 1907) from memory and from the journals her mother kept. In this book in one chapter Lola lists all of the children, grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren of Margaret in order of who they were born too. Lot's of McClure descendants! I was just reading through her book tonight and I don't know why I didn't notice this extensive list before! Margaret was my favorite "Aunt" and I have so many good memories of her. Actually she was my grandmother's 1st cousin and my 3rd, but as a child I always referred to her as my Aunt and still do :)

Go to List at Rootsweb and type in McClaren. You need to join the lits and it will keep you updated.

My McClarens are maternal also. It's still good to follow the lines and get involved.

Hi Di,
Yes please do! I've been doing research since 1994 on my various surnames, but am not very familiar with the whole DNA thing.
The McClearn are of my maternal ancestry via my maternal g. grandmother Carrie A. McClearn of Iowa Falls, Hardin County, IA
