     Sarah Armstrong was born on 15 June 1753 at Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA; Date from McLean Family Bible, p. 2; Descendancy report found by Yates Co. Hist. Soc. says b 21 June 1753 in Elkton, PA (unable to locate an "Elkton" in PA - GVaut) and SAR application #50381 also gives birthdate as 21 June 1753. Steely [1927] also says whe was born at Elkton.1,3,5,6,7,8 She married John S. McLean, son of Elizabeth Fleming, on 31 August 1779 at Cumberland Co. (now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA;      Sexton [1883:268] says: "At the close of his service he married Sarah Armstrong, daughter of James Armstrong, likewise of Scotch-Irish descent, but eraly settled in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. His first place of residence after marriage was at Mifflin, on the Juniata River, where five children were born - James, William, John, alexander and Elizabeth."

     B Wilson on Ancestry says m. 31 Aug 1779. SAR application says m 1776.

     Since John McLean was in militia service until at least 1782, it's possible that the marriage was in or after 1782, but most sources use the 31 Aug 1779 date. Their son, William F. was born in 1780 so a date of 1779 (or later) date is more likely than 1782. (G Vaut 1 Jan 2015.)1,6,9,10,7

     Sarah Armstrong and John S. McLean
from Jordan [1915:III:1682-8]
(The McLean Line.)
The McLean's have every reason to be proud of their history and ancestry. It may be regarded as an unquestionable fact that the McLean's are purely of Highland origin. They can trace their origin with precision to Old Dougall of Scone, who must have flourished about the year l 100, and has been described as an influential, just and venerable man. Of all the clans, none is more deserving of honorable mention. For centuries it held a conspicuous place for independence of bearing and disinterested loyalty in the history of Scotland. Rapidly grew until it reached its zenith, at which time, during the reign of James VI., it was accounted the most powerful of any in the Hebrides.

The lands belonging to the clan at the time of the final forfeiture of the Lords of the Isles (1493) comprised the greater part of Mull, the whole of Coll and Tierce, portions of Scarba, Islay, and districts in Morvern and Knapdale.

Similar to all Highland names, that of McLean has undergone many changes. Perhaps none other can exhibit a greater variety of more curious fluctuations. The clan takes its name from Gilleain, known as Gilleain na Tuaidah, who flourished about the year 1250. To this name, the word Mac, meaning son, is added, showing the clan is composed of the sons of Gilleain. The official records of Scotland gave many curious spellings, which either prove that there was no established form or that the scribes were very indifferent as to correctness. The oldest spelling is that recorded by Stoddart, whose Gilleain's son's name is spelled Gilleain Malsilyn.

The fifteenth century presents no less than twelve different ways of recording the name, while in the sixteenth century there were twenty-seven different modes, and we find in 1546 McLean first spelled as the name is written here.

John S. McLean was born in Ireland, June 11, 1748. He was the son of a rich gentleman; was well educated; reared in luxury and wealth; had black hair and brown eyes; was a man about 5 feet 80 inches tall, and good looking. Possessing a great desire to visit America he came to this country. When the Revolutionary War broke out he enlisted in service. In Captain Denton's company, New York Line, he became lieutenant, militia Dutchess county, Seventh Regiment of New York, serving seven years for his adopted country. He was heard to relate that for three days he went without any food, having only tobacco, and after a day's hard fighting, laid down on the battlefield, in the morning finding his hair frozen to the ground in the blood of his slain comrades. He intended to again return to his native land and had a great desire to do so, but on hearing of the death of his father and that he would have nothing to return to, as the oldest son would inherit all, the desire7 ceased and he remained, learning the cooper's trade in order to make a living. On August 31, 1779, he married Sarah Armstrong. They had lived some years in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, and during the latter part of the eighteenth century moved to West Benton, Yates county, New York. He was one of the first members of the Presbyterian church there, which he helped to build. He lived to the good old age of ninety-three years, always enjoying the blessings of good health. Their children were:
l. William, born October 23, l780, married Elizabeth, born July 25, 1791.
2. Alexander, born August 31, 1782.
3. Elizabeth, born October 10, 1784.
4. Alexander, born January 18, 1785.
5. Mary, born November 15, 1787.
6. John A., born June 22, 1790·
7. George, of whom further.
8. Sarah, born May 17, 1795.
9. Deborah, born August 15, 1797.

George McLean, son of John S. McLean, was born March 7, 1793· in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. In early life he moved to West Benton, Yates county, New York. On hearing of the great wooded country by the glowing accounts written them by two of their sons, Daniel S. and W. Edwin, who had come to Waterford township and built their homes, he and his wife decided to leave the town of Pulteney, Steuben county, New York, and journeyed to the far West as it then seemed to them. On Monday the first of April, 1847, they bade good-bye to their friends and the old log house which had been a shelter for their eleven children, leaving with two wagon load s, two loads of household goods having been shipped from Canandaigua, thirty miles distant from Pulteney. A spring wagon carried the father, mother, Deborah, Drusilla, Ansel P. and Sarah Jane, Lewis H. making the entire journey on foot. Sarah Jane, then only nine years old and small of her age, having recovered from an attack of the measles and wearing green goggles to keep the bright rays of "Old Sol" from her eyes, often was spoken to by the people as they journeyed from village to hamlet as the "little old grandmother". On Saturday night, after six days of travel across country, a distance of about one hundred and seventy-fi ,·e miles, they arrived at the home of the son W. Edwin, who had located here a year or two previous to this. They lived on the Wilson Moore farm in a log house for one year, then moved to the Clemens farm on the Turnpike road two and one-half miles south of Waterford. This farm comprised three hundred and fifty-six acres, and has since been known as the McLean farm. Here they lived the remainder of their lives, hard-working, prosperous farmers. Here the scene of pleasant home gatherings; here the wanderer found rest and shelter for the night. The young people of the neighborhood enjoyed many a delightful evening at this home; many a winter's evening the family were gathered around the fireplace paring apples, long strings of which are hung up to dry, after which they joined in song, the father leading, each one carrying his own part. Here grandfather heard the summons, "Well done, come up higher," on March 17, 1872, and grandmother followed June 5, 1875.

He married, November 19, 1815, Elizabeth Sebring, who died June 5, 1875, daughter of Abraham and Nancy (Harris) Sebring, of Seneca county, New York. Abraham Sebring was a son of John C. Sebring, who was the father of two other sons, namely: Folkard, born 1759, died May 12, 1837, buried in McNeal Cemetery, Lodi, New York, and Cornelius, born August 17, 1763, died March 2, 1828, married and had a son, John C., also a grandson, John C., of Lodi, New York. John C. Sebring Sr. and another man owned a fleet of ships which were captured by the French in 1800. Abraham Sebring, the oldest son of John C. Sebring, was born June 23, 1758, in Bridgewater, Somerset county, New Jersey, died April 16, 1839, buried in Le Compt Cemetery Lodi, New York, as was also his wife.

Sarah Armstrong and John S. McLean
Evidence regarding identity of the Sarah ARMSTRONG who married John S. MCLEAN
     Sexton [1883, p. 268]: "At the close of his service he married Sarah Armstrong, daughter of James Armstrong, likewise of Scotch-Irish descent, but early settled in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania."
     There was a James Armstrong in "Paxtang" (now Paxton), Lancaster Co. in the 1740's. I don't know if this James Armstrong is related to/a descendant of that 1740's James or not. G Vaut 18 June 2015.
     I believe that the fact that John McLean lived next door to Alexander ARMSTRONG in the 1790 Mifflin Co., PA census and that they lived close to each other when they moved to Ontario Co., NY (see 1800 census Jerusalem, Ontario Co., NY) supports the idea that there was a close family link. This increases the probability that the Sarah ARMSTRONG that John married was closely related to Alexander ARMSTRONG, and possibly his daughter. G Vaut 18 June 2015.10,17,18,19

Sarah Armstrong lived with George Armstrong on 7 November 1809 at Citation, Benton Center, Yates Co. (now), New York, USA; Cleveland [1873:I:354-5]: "The Presbyterian Church of Benton.
The father of the Presbyterian church in Benton was Stephen Whitaker, who, within two or three years after his first settlement in the town, and as early as 1802, commenced holding prayer meetings and induced his neighbors to meet and listen to the reading of sermons. Occasionally a missionary would visit them, and one of the, John Lindsley, organized a Presbyterian church of sixteen members, in Stephen Whitaker's log house, Nov. 7, 1809. The members were Stephen Whitaker, and Mary, his wife; John Armstrong and Susannah, his wife; John Hall, and Sarah, his wife; John A. McLean, and Sarah, his wife; George Armstrong, and Elizabeth, his wife; Solomon Couch, William Roy, Terry Owen and wife; William Read, and Rebecca, wife of Robert N. Boyd."

George Armstrong
undated clipping from "The Chronicle-Express" newspaper regarding Revolutionary War service of George Armstrong and John McLean at Penn Yan, Yates Co., New York, USA.12

George Armstrong
Query to Yates Co. Genealogical & Historical Society from Carol A. Anders, dated 18 Feb 1987.13,2 George Armstrong was also known as George Washington Armstrong NOTE: per Anders email of 27 Dec 2014, she has never seen any proof that George's middle name was "Washington". Carol thinks that it was a misreading of a document that referred to "Rev Geo W Armstrong" and that the document was really referreing to a Revolutionary War Geo Armstrong.3,4

George Armstrong began military service between 1776 and 1782 per Alvispat's Weblog: In 1987, I corresponded with Carol Anders of Fountain Valley CA. Carol sent a FGS which gave the dates for her George Armstrong as b 1759, d 21 Mar 1842 Sandusky Co OH. His wife, Elizabeth Ardery, died on 17 Aug 1831 and is buried in Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Benton NY. Their children were Sarah (ca 1790), James (ca 1791 PA), John E (1796) and Alexander (1798).
Carol wrote,
“George Armstrong was drafted into the Revolutionary War at the age of seventeen. He was a resident of the town of Juniata, Cumberland Co PA [Juniata Twp was founded in 1793-KP] when he entered the service on 25 Dec 1776. He served as a sergeant in the company of militia commanded by Capt James Gibson. He marched to Philadelphia and from there to Trenton and Princeton in New Jersey where he was under the command of Gen Israel Putnam. This was about the time that the Hessians were captured at Trenton. George served for two months, fifteen days and was discharged and returned to Juniata.
“In 1778, he was again drafted, this time in Capt Matier’s Co, Col Smith’s Regt, Gen Lacy’s Brigade of Militia. He went to Crooked Billet near Philadelphia, served two months and was discharged.
“In 1780, George was drafted for the third time, in the Co of Capt Hurl, under Maj Elliot, was on duty principally in Northumberland Co for two months and then was honorably discharged.
“After the war ca 1793, George and his family went by boat to Ontario Co NY where he purchased a farm in Benton. He and his wife Elizabeth had at least four children [above]. In 1832 George applied for a pension, which was granted for the amount of $28.33 per annum.
“George applied for a transfer of his pension to Sandusky Co OH in 1834, stating that his reason for removing to the State of Ohio was to live with his children. In his will dated Feb 1836 he gives $1000 to his daughter, Sarah Chapman; to his son James all his personal property; and to James and John E all of his real estate to be equally divided. George died on 21 Mar 1842 and is buried in Wickwire cemetery, Bellevue OH.”
George was part of a family of probable brothers John and George, with a sister Sarah, all of whom resided in Jerusalem Twp, Ontario Co NY, in 1800 and Benton in ca 1809 and also 1810. George was born before 1755, John and Sarah between 1755 and 1775. There are indications they were siblings of the Alexander Armstrong who moved to MI, including the Chapman family connection. Living within a few miles of each other were, supposedly, two families of Armstrongs, each with these names John, James, George and Alexander. But the men of this family are pretty much the same age as the James and George Armstrong from Somerset Co NJ. And there are no references at all to NJ in this family; they seem to have been in PA as late as the 1790s.14,7

George Armstrong began military service between 1776 and 1782 at Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA, (It is possible that some of these service records belong to George's Uncle George.)

George Armstrong was a witness to the from Cleveland [1873:300]: During the last year or two of the eighteenth century, there came a colony of settlers from Pennsylvania, who located in east Benton, some of them in what is now Torrey. Among them was Anthony Trimmer, who was descended from Scotch or Irish people, who had settled an early colony in Northumberland county, Pa. His wife was Sarah Howard, a sister of Thomas Howard, also an early settler and noted citizen, who resided about one mile north of Hopeton. The Armstrongs, Harts, McLeans, Howards and Trimmers were all members of the same colony. with Epenetus Hart between 1795 and 1799 at Citation, Benton, Ontario Co. (now Yates Co.), New York, USA.42

George Armstrong and Elizabeth (?) immigrated between 1798 and 1799 to Milo, Yates Co., New York, USA; Migrated from PA to the (now) Yates Co. area of NY. The 1855 NY State census record (Milo Village Penn Yan) for Sarah (Armstrong) Chapman states that she had been 55 "years resident in this city or town".43

George Armstrong lived on 7 November 1809 at Citation, Benton Center, Yates Co. (now), New York, USA; Cleveland [1873:I:354-5]: "The Presbyterian Church of Benton.
The father of the Presbyterian church in Benton was Stephen Whitaker, who, within two or three years after his first settlement in the town, and as early as 1802, commenced holding prayer meetings and induced his neighbors to meet and listen to the reading of sermons. Occasionally a missionary would visit them, and one of the, John Lindsley, organized a Presbyterian church of sixteen members, in Stephen Whitaker's log house, Nov. 7, 1809. The members were Stephen Whitaker, and Mary, his wife; John Armstrong and Susannah, his wife; John Hall, and Sarah, his wife; John A. McLean, and Sarah, his wife; George Armstrong, and Elizabeth, his wife; Solomon Couch, William Roy, Terry Owen and wife; William Read, and Rebecca, wife of Robert N. Boyd."

Records of creation of Benton Presbyterian Church collected by G Vaut in Dec 2014 during research at the Yates Co. Historical Society, Penn Yan, NY. These records mention:
John Armstrong and his wife, Susannah
George Armstrong and his wife, Elizabeth
John McClean and his wife, Sarah.56,57

Adam Sherrill Sr.

from Wilson Family Tree on Ancestry: This was written by Nell D. Law, family historian:.
     "In 1742, Adam....and family with his brother, left Pennsylvania and were in Virginia, near Harper's Ferry in the Shenandoah Valley. The brothers were wagon builders in Pennsylvania and brought the skill to Virginia, then to North Carolina. For some reason, they abandoned their property there (ED NOTE: in Virginia) and migrated to North Carolina to what is now Catawba County. They settled an area neamed for them called Sherrill's Ford. (They) operated a ferry here and farmed both sides of the river, their home being on a high point on the West (?) bank.
     "Most of the area is now underwater, covered by Lake Norman, a Duke Power Company Lake. In a road circling the east side is a plaque commemorating the Sherrill family, near Morrisville, (which) is the 'Town of Sherrill Ford'. Numerous mailboxes, streets, a grocery all attest to many current Sherrill inhabitants.
     "The original town was moved to the west bank of the lake. It contains a firehouse, school and public library. This library holds many interesting papers, etc., and information. Someday I hope to visit it. In 1980, Bob, Elaine (ED NOTE: Nell's daughter) and I camped nearby, but we but we were on a very hurried trip and could not see and do what we liked. The old family cememtery is still on a hill, but grown up, infested with rattlesnakes. Names and dates on stones have been worn away. We didn't dare go in it. On a large stone tablet at a crossroads at Sherrill's Ford is another memorial to Adam Sherrill and 8 sons.
     "The rest of the family history traces from Adam Sherrill above. Notice the name Ruanna in the next 3 generations. Adams' wife's name? I will not list children of the other sons. If there were daughters they were not mentioned, neither the name of Adam's wife.
     "The will of Adam Sherrill is recorded in Rowan Country, North Carolina. Dated 4/4/1772, probated 5/4/1774. Only three sons are named: William, Aquilla and Adam. The others had very likely received their share of the estate at their marriage or some other earlier time.
     "North Carolina history books list Adam Sherrill and his 8 sons as the earliest pioneers in the North Carolina region. Samuel Sherrill above moved to Sullivan Country, Tennessee. Later to Nollichucky, his home was called Daisy Fields. He was father to the famed beauty Catherine "Bonny Kate" Sherrill, 2nd wife of John Sevier, 1st Governor of Tennessee."9

Adam Sherrill Sr.

From Wikipedia: Adam Sherrill , or Adam "the pioneer" Sherrill (1697 - May 4, 1774) was the first European to cross the Catawba River in North Carolina."
     Adam Sherrill was one of the six children of William Sherrill and Margarette Rudisil.
     In 1722 Sherrill married Elizabeth Corzine. Soon after their marriage they moved to Augusta County, Virginia.
     Adam and Elizabeth had nine children, eight sons and one daughter. The children were: William B; Samuel; Uriah; Adam Jr; Aquilla; Isaac; Jacob; Moses; and Catherine.
     In 1747, Adam and his family settled in the west side of Catawba, North Carolina. Adam spent two days scouting the Catawba River when he attempted to cross it. Adam crossed the river from east to west and got a land patent on the Catawba River in 1751. Adam was the first European person in history to cross the Catawba River.
     Finally, after crossing the Catawba River, he got in 1747 the honor to name a small town which is now Sherrills Ford, North Carolina.
     Adam Sherrill wrote his will on March 5, 1772. His will quoted:
     In the name of God, Amen, I, ADAM SHERRILL of the County of Rowan and the province of North Carolina being in perfect health and memory, praised be God, do make this my last will and testament as followeth:
     I give and bequeath unto my son ADAM, one Negro fellow, called and known by the name of Vail to him and his heirs forever after my decease.
     I give and bequeath unto my son QUILLAR one Negro after my decease if either one, besides Vail, and in case I should have no others after my decease.
     I give unto my son QUILLAR thirty pounds in lieu therefore to be raised out of my estate after my decease to him and his heirs.
     I give and bequeath unto my son WILLIAM SHERRILL one of the best horses or mares that I posses at my decease to him and his heirs forever.
     The true intent and meaning of this, my last will is that no other will make by me or any other in my name shall disannul this my last will.
     I do appoint my two sons, ADAM and QUILLAR executors of this my last will and Testament.
     5 March 1772 Adam Sherrill
     The witnesses of this will are: James Clark, Jr; Abraham Roberson, Jr; and William Berry.
     Adam died May 4, 1774 of old age. He was 76 or 77. He left his wife and nine children.10
Adam Sherrill Sr. and William (II) Sherrill Sr. were mentioned in a land transaction on 1 September 1736 at Cecil Co., Maryland, USA,

Author Mark Strength writes of the romance between Catherine Sherrill and General Sevier in his book, "Bonny Kate; Pioneer Lady" which can be found on Amazon.com. The book has been summarized by a reader, "Bonny Kate, Pioneer Lady, is about a spirited young woman named Kate Sherrill who arrives with her family in a covered wagon at Watauga Fort the day before the Cherokee War begins. Early in the morning while searching for a stray cow, she discovers hundreds of warriors encircling the unsuspecting settlers. She runs for her life, but the soldiers quickly close the gates, shutting her out. A handsome lieutenant, John Sevier, reaches down from the high wall to rescue her, and so begins one of the greatest love stories of frontier Tennessee. This is a meticulously researched, and beautifully crafted historical fiction account about actual persons living in 1776-1780 in the Watauga and Nolichucky Valley settlements in eastern Tennessee at the time of the American Revolution." (Find A Grave Memorial# 6364660.)
From a contributor to Ancestry.com:
     In 1776, Samuel, along with his sons, Samuel, Jr., Adam, and future son-in-law, John Sevier, signed the "Watauga Petition" which sought recognition of the Wahington District government in the Watauga Settlement. North Carolina later approved it and established Washington Co., Tn. as a result. The following is a copy of the petition and its signers:
     Petition of the Inhabitants of Washington District, INCLUDING THE RIVER WATAUGAH, NOLACHUCKIE, &C., 1776
     In 1772, the white settlements south of the Holston River, although acknowledged to be an unorganized part of North Carolina, were without any form of government. In 1772, they "exercised the divine right of governing themselves," forming a "written association and articles for the management of general affairs. Five Commissioners were appointed, by the decision of a majority of whom all matters in controversy were settled..." The Articles of the Watauga Association are apparently not extant, but it is known that they "in convention assembled, elected as Commissioners, thirteen citizens. They were John Carter, Charles Robertson, James Robertson, Zach. Isbell, John Sevier, James Smith, Jacob Brown, William Bean, John Jones, George Russell, Jacob Womack, Robert Lucs and William Tatham." ("The First American Frontier, The Annals of Tennessee to the End of The Eighteenth Century...," J.G.M. Ramsey, A.M., M.D., Lippincott, Grambo & Co., Philadelphia, 1853)
In 1775, the Wataugans secured their lands by purchasing it from the Cherokee Nation, and by August 1776, had petitioned North Carolina for recognition of their government, now termed "Washington District." The following petition is undated, but is believed to have been signed in 1776. The original, located in the North Carolina State Archives at Raleigh, states "Received August 22, 1776." (ibid.)
     To the Hon. the Provincial Council of North-Carolina:
     The humble petition of the inhabitants of Washington District, including the River Wataugah, Nonachuckie, &c., in committee assembled, Humbly Sheweth, that about six years ago, Col. Donelson, (in behalf of the Colony of Virginia) held a Treaty with the Cherokee Indians, in order to purchase the lands of the Western Frontiers; in consequence of which Treaty, many of your petitioners settled on the lands of the Wataugah, &c., expecting to be within the Virginia line, and consequently hold their lands by their improvements as first settlers; but to their great disappointment, when the line was run they were (contrary to their expectation) left out; finding themselves thus disappointed, and being to inconveniently situated to move back, and feeling an unwillingness to loose the labour bestowed on their plantations, they applied to the Cherokee Indians, and leased the land for a term of ten years, before the expiration of which term, it appeared that many persons of distinction were actually making purchases forever; thus yielding a precedent, (supposing many of them, who were gentlemen of the law, to be better judges of the constitution than we were) and considering the bad consequences it must be attended with, should the reversion be purchased out of our hands, we next preceded to make a purchase of the lands, reserving those in our possession in sufficient tracts for our own uses, and resolving to dispose of the remainder for the good of th community. This purchase was made and the lands acknowledged to us and our heirs forever, in an open treaty, in Wataugah Old Fields; a deed being obtained from the Chiefs of the said Cherokee nation, for themselves and their whole nation, conveying a fee simple right to the said lands, to us and our heirs forever, which deed was for and in consideration of the sum of two thousand pounds sterling (paid to them in goods) for which consideration they acknowledged themselves fully satisfied, contented and paid; and agreed for themselves and their whole nation, their heirs, &c., forever to resign, warrant and defend the said la
     While the actual burial site for Samuel Sherrill remains unknown, there is a cenotaph in his honor in the Cantrell Gilliand Memorial Garden. May this memorial serve as an expression of the gratitude we have for him for braving the unknown to help build a new country: our America.1

Samuel Sherrill Sr. was a witness to the Mentioned in his father's 1772 will, with his brothers Quillar and William.
