Sarah Howard1,2

F, #77701, b. before 1783
FatherThomas Howard b. 15 Nov 1758, d. 25 May 1825; That Thomas HOWARD was Sarah's father is speculation based on the fact that her mother, Elizabeth ARMSTRONG, was probably married to Thomas. I have no proof of this connection. G Vaut 3 May 2015

     Sarah Howard was born before 1783 at Pennsylvania, USA; She is mentioned in her uncle Robert Armstrong's will in 1783: "Also I Will to my sister Eliz. Daughter Sarah the sum of Ten pounds." No surname is given to confirm that this is the dau. of the Elizabeth Armstrong who married Thomas Howard; that is my assumption. I also assume that since she is referred to as the child of his sister, rather than as a direct heir by name she was likely a minor at that time (1783).2,3
Sarah Howard died; May have died very young, soon after June 1783. She does not appear in the record of Thomas and Elizabeth's children who moved from Yates Co., NY to Wood Co. OH in 1821, so she may have died before then or remained in NY, perhaps married.4
     ; Possible Daughter: My identification of a daughter namedSarah is based solely on the 24 June 1783 will of Robert Armstrong, brother of Sarah's mother, Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard: "I will to my sister Eliz's Daughter Sarah the sum of Ten pounds". I have found no other mention ever or a child named Sarah. To be mentioned in the will, Sarah would have been born before June, 1783, which seems to conflict with the marriage date of Thomas Howard and Elizabeth (Armstrong) Howard.2
In Robert Armstrong's will dated 24 June 1783 at Fermanagh Township, Cumberland Co. (now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA, Sarah Howard was named as an heir; Transcription of will by G. Vaut 19 Dec 2014:

     Robert Armstrong was born after 1762 at Pennsylvania, USA; Cited as a minor (<21) in his uncle Robert's 1783 will, therefore born after 1762.1 He married an unknown person on 26 July 1768 at Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA; There is a 26 July 1768 marriage listed for a Robert Armstrong to Isabel Forster. This might be this Robert's wife, though his will doesn't mention a wife or any children. The marriage was performed by Rev. J. C. Bucher.2
Robert Armstrong died after 1783; date he is mentioned in his Uncle's will.1
     ; per the will of Robert Armstrong: "I will to my brother Alex youngest son Robert twenty pounds to be [illegible word] in the hands of some honest person on use till he the sd. Robt. comes to the age of twenty one years."1

; It is possible that the son Robert, named in his uncle's 1783 will, and the son Alexander fils are in fact the same person. The estimated years of birth are similar. No mention of Robert was found after his mention as a minor in the 1783 and Alexander appears in the 1785 county transcript for Fermanagh, (then) Cumberland Co. and in the
1790 Mifflin Co. census.3,4,1,5

     James Armstrong was born before 1756 at Cumberland Co. (now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA; He is named as Alexander's "oldest son" and the executor in his uncle Robert's 1783 will and must therefore have been at least 21 in 1783. He appears as a land owner in the 1778 tax list and was probably over 21 in 1778. It is unknown which of Alexander's two eldest children (Mary and James) was born first. In the 1800 census he is listed as born bef 1756.2,4,5,6 He married Eleanor Pollock on 24 May 1788 at Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA; Marriage of James Armstrong to Eleanor Pollock on May 24, 1788 by Rev. Robert Davidson in Cumberland Co Marriages 1761-1800, p. 3 (Might be the same James - not sure.7)
James Armstrong died after 1840; Last record is the 1840 census.8

; from Kathy Alvis Patterson website at http://www.genealogy.com/users/p/a/t/Kathy-Patterson-OK/FILE/0002page.html seen on 21 Jan 2015:
     From Ontario Messenger 31 March 1852: “Death of a Revolutionary Soldier - James Armstrong, the father of William and Geo. Armstrong, died at his residence in this town on the 25th, at the advanced age of 90 years. Mr. A. served some time in the war of the Revolution. He was among the first settlers of this town, having emigrated to this locality prior to the year 1800. Geneva Gazette.”

     There were obviously two young men named John Armstrong who resided in Geneva NY 1817-1822. Since it is known that Sarah Embree’s husband was a son of James Armstrong (see below), we need to look elsewhere for our John Armstrong’s father. This family in Geneva NY is the only family we have found in western NY from New Jersey. So, the next question was whether James Armstrong had brothers, who might have had a son named John, b 1781-1789.

First, I will review what is known about James Armstrong and his family.
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1800: 41001/00001 [a few houses away from William Ansley, see below]
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1810: 12201/30010
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1820: 000311/02101
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1830: 000120001/00102001
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1840: 0000020001/000001
     Seneca, Ontario Co NY, 1850: James “Amstrong,” 87, w/George 35, Sarah, 30
James had 5 males in his household in 1800 and 1810. Four sons were still at home in 1820. These would have included John (who married Sarah Embree in 1822) and James A; James’s death notice mentioned his sons George and William. The fifth son is unknown at this time and obviously could have been a nephew.

Cemetery and other records indicate the following children for James Armstrong:
     John, b ca 1794 NJ per 1850 census; m Sarah Embree
     William; died Oct 27 1856; ae 59 yrs, m Elizabeth Allen Smith; died June 23 1871; ae 62 yrs
     George; born Sep 25 1799; died Jan 10 1856
     James A; died Mar 17 1871; ae 75 yrs, m Nancy McPherson, wife of James A; died Apr 19 1899; ae 95-8-17; 1870 census says b ca 1794 NJ
     Cornelia, dau of James and Elizabeth; born Aug 23 1807; died Sep 6 1838

James’s father is named in History and directory of Yates County: containing a sketch of its original settlement by the Public Universal Friends ... Cleveland, 1873, page 1_740: “John Amstrong of Milo, was a son of James Armstrong, who emigrated at an early period from Somerset Co., New Jersey, where their family were first established in this country by the emigration of Martin Armstrong from Dublin, Ireland. They were Irish of Scotch descent. James Armstrong was a brother of Alexander Armstrong, the father of the family of Armstrongs that settled in East Benton, on the ‘Ridge Road,’’ now in Torrey. James Armstrong purchased the land, now the homestead of his son John Armstrong, on lot 12, in 1793. Coming the next year with his family, he purchased other land and settled in the town of seneca, on the Gore in the neighborhood of William Ansley. John Armstrong, oldest son of James was the only one of the family who settled within the boundaries of Yates county. he married Sarah, daughter of Rowland Embree, in 1822, and settled on one hundred and thirty acres, the east part of lot 12, which his father had purchased twenty-nine years before, but which was still in its wild estate. They still reside on the same premises. He was born in New Jersey in 1793, and his wife at Stillwater, N.Y., in 1799.…” [Ed. Note: the reference to the family of Alexander Armtrong is difficult. Could it be in error? Since there was another Armstrong family near Benton, did thiswriter just assume they were descended from Alexander?]

There was an Alexander Armstrong in the Seneca or Geneva, Ontario Co NY, census in 1800, 1810 and 1820. Were there two men with the same name in the same village? One Alexander Armstrong is on the same page of the census in 1820 as William Barron. The first man, at least, appears to be James’s brother.
1800 Seneca, Ontario Co NY: Alexander Armstrong, 10001/10201, same page as James Armstrong.

Was this man, the brother of James, the same as Alexander Armstrong, a Revolutionary War veteran from Pennsylvania, with a documented (much younger, possibly second) wife, Grissel Chapman, who died in Washtenaw Co MI. If his stated birthdate is correct, he could not have been a brother of James Armstrong of Geneva NY, since both were born in 1763. Based on county of origin in PA, it is probable this man was a brother of the Benton NY family. At first glance, this was one man, in Seneca Twp in 1800 with a young son, alone in 1810, but remarried in 1820 (Grissel Chapman) and rejoined at that time by two sons 16-26.
     1810 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 00001/00000 (same as above or not?).
     1820 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 100201/11010
     1830 Seneca Twp, Ontario Co NY, 111010001/1010001
     1850 Lodi Two, Washtenaw Co MI, 87 b PA, w/Grissel, 60, George, 34 NY, Alexander, 20 NY.

Alexander and Grissel also had a daughter Elizabeth. From Pioneer Ancestors, Salt Lake City Chapter SUP, at Ancestry.com:
“Elizabeth Armstrong Born 2 Apr. 1819 in Seneca Castle, Ontario County, New York Arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1851. Elizabeth Armstrong was the daughter of Alexander Armstrong and Grissel Chapman. A number of residents in the Ontario County area of New York state went in a body to Michigan and took up land there. Records of the First Presbyterian Church in Saline, Michigan, show a petition to the New York Church by some of the departing church members for permission to start a branch of the church in Michigan. Alexander and Grissel Armstrong are listed as members of the First Presbyterian Church in Saline, Michigan. The Armstrongs settled in Lodi, Washtenaw Co MI, and Alexander Armstrong is shown as one of the first persons to apply for land there.” Elizabeth and her husband Hiram Mace, became Mormons and moved to Utah.9

; 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."64

War of 1812 Veteran

Son of Abraham and Johanna "Nancy" Anne (Haring) Sebring. John married to Miss Hannah Jackson.

"Captain John Sebring, a soldier of 1812, was from Sussex Co., N.J., and with his father migrated at an early day to Seneca County. His father, Abraham, was a veteran of the Revolution. In 1810 Captain Sebring came to Tyrone, and settled on the farm now owned by his sons, Daniel and G. C. Sebring. He was a prominent man among the early settlers. No one was more thorough in all his undertakings than he. He was captain of the first military company formed here, - the Tyrone Rifles. This company, in the showy uniform, were the pride and pets of many a gala day in the days of the early settlement. Captain Sebring died at the age of seventy-two years. Of his family of five sons and four daughters, there are now living Sebring, John N., G. C., and Daniel in Tyrone, and Mrs. Sophia Tompkins, in Bath, Steuben Co." - History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins, and Schuyler Counties, New York, pg 679.

"... He [John Sebring] was a native of New Jersey, and was born December 23, 1781. While yet a boy, his father, Abraham Sebring, removed to the Empire Stat, choosing Lodi, Seneca County, as his future home. He was there reared, and there also he married Hannah Jackson, who was born September 25, 1782. The young people continued to make their home in that county until 1810, the year in which they removed to the town of Tyrone, this county. They were well-to-do farmers and were classed among the most progressive and enterprising people of Schuyler County. Here Mrs. Sebring died February 5, 1849, when sixty-seven years of age, while her husband survived her five years, passing away February 6, 1854, aged seventy-four years. To John and Hannah Sebring there were born nine children, namely: Nancy, Sophia, Cyrus, Teresa, William H., John N., Gardner C., Daniel and Angeline. ..." - Portrait and Biographical Record of Seneca and Schulyer Counties, New York, pgs 390-391.

(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.

John Armstrong McLean and Jane V. Remer appeared in the census of 1830 at Benton Township, Yates Co., New York, USA; [Note: There are two John "McLeans" in the 1830 census for Benton, Yates Co., NY: one on p. 311 and one on p. 301 (next to a William McLean). I think the John on p. 311 is more likely to be the correct John S. based on the presence of an elderly wife and the fact that he's next to a William - probably his son Wm F.]

     Jane V.

I think the John on p. 311 is more likely to be the correct John S. based on the presence of an elderly wife and the fact that he's next to a William - probably his son Wm F.]

     ; 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.

; The fate of William2 F. McLEAN’s sixth child, James3 McClean (William2, John1) is uncertain. The source of his birth and death dates are from the family Bible of Sarah2 (ARMSTRONG) McLEAN, his grandmother.ii McLean [nd] No middle initial is given in that record. The date of birth is written clearly, and reads October 18th 1816. However, the date of death has been crossed out and changed. The crossed-out portion may read “September the 13th. The added date is “October 8, 1852.” This segment of the Bible page is shown below.
Figure 269:     Clipping from Family Bible of Sarah2 (ARMSTRONG) McLEAN Showing the Entry for James3 McClean (William2, John1)iiii McLean [nd]
[Image of original bible entry is attached.]

Identifying what happened to James3 McClean (William2, John1) may lie in solving the following puzzle involving the records of three men named James McLean who may or may not have been the same man. Here is the evidence discovered so far.
A. Who was the real James McLean?
There are two other James McLeans11 For clarity in the following dicussion, “James3 McClean (William2, John1)” refers to the son of William F. McLEAN (John1); “James McLean #1” refers to the James F. Mclean buried in Wayne County, New York; while “James McLean #2” refers to the James F. Mclean buried in White County, Indiana. for whom records have been found, either of whom might have been James3 McClean (William2, John1), though neither is a certain match. What adds to the confusion is that though the vital dates for these two other James’s are not exactly the same, there is some evidence that all three men may have been the same person.
James McLean #1:
There is a James F. McLean buried in Wayne County, New York.
ii FindAGrave.com Memorial #21259309. His grave marker read “Died Sept. 13, 1852 Aged 35 yrs. 10 ms & 21 ds.”iiii An image of the grave marker is posted on FindAGrave.com Memorial #21259309. The date of death is identical to one possible interpretation of the date of birth of James3 McClean (William2, John1) in the family Bible. The date of birth calculated from the grave marker inscription is 23 October 1816, only seven days different from that given in the McLean family Bible.
Further research on this man has found a probate record in Wayne County, dated 19 January 1853, for a James F. McLean who had died intestate and who had a wife named Lydia A. who was named heir.
ii[:ITAL]iiii Ancestry.com NYWills: Record seen on 3 April 2021 at https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=8800&h=2841751;
There is also an 1850 census Wayne County listing for a James F. McLean with a wife listed as Lydia A. There are two children listed in in this household: a daughter, Betsy, aged 11 (i.e., born ca 1839) and a three month old son, William C. (i.e., born ca April 1850). It is possible that the James who died and was buried in 1852 was the James who died intestate with a wife named Lydia A., and also the same James F. listed in the 1850 census. No further record of the daughter, Betsy McLean, has been found.

The presence of thirty-four year old Asa Swartout (Swarthout) in the same household with James is a clue that this James F. McLean #1 could well have been
James3 McClean (William2, John1). James3 grew up in Benton Twp. In the 1840 US census there were four SWARTHOUT households (carious spellings) listed for Benton Twp. and another eight households in nearby towns of Yates County. Research shows that Asa P. Swarthout was probably the son of John L./S. Swarthout who was living in Benton Twp. at the time of the 1840 census.iiii 1840Benton: p. 267, line 7. Furthermore, in this census this John L./S. Swarthout was listed as living next door to (next line) William2 F. McLEAN (John1). Asa probably grew up with James3 McClean (William2, John1) in Yates County and may even have moved to Wayne County together.
Further research found a Lydia McLean with a ten year old son, William McLean, living in the household of an Abel and Pamelia Lyon in 1860. These are evidently Lydia’s parents (as subsequently shown by the 1880 census listing). There is no record of her daughter, Betsy, in this census and Betsy, being about 21 in 1860, may have married by then or died.

In the 1880 census, the widow Lydia McLean is living with a widowed Pamelia Lyon and is listed as Pamelia’s daughter. This indicates that the wife of James F. McLean who had died and was listed with him in the 1850 census, and then mentioned as his widow and heir in his 1853 probate record was Lydia A. (Lyon) McLean. No further record of the son William C. McLean has been found.

Neither a burial record nor any other records have been found for Lydia (Lyon) McLean in New York.
In summary, This seems to be one family of a James F. and a Lydia A. (Lyon) McClean, with two children: Betsy (who may have died or married before 1860) and William C., who may have died or moved away before 1870. The birth and death dates of this James F. are close to those given in the family Bible for James3 McClean (William2, John1).
James McLean #2:

This couple has not been found in any census records in Indiana in 1850, 1860, 1870 or 1880, nor has any other record been found of them in Indiana.
No grave marker was found for James McLean, though the burial was recorded.
The grave marker for Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean reads “Died Oct. 17, 1896 Aged 78y. 9m. 22d.” The birth date calculated from this inscription matches the birth date on the memorial page.

In summary, this family was apparently from New York (where their son William Edwin was born in Wayne County) and at some point they apparently moved to Indiana. Nothing else is known about them.
William2 F. McLEAN (John S.1) and three of his other children, all migrated to Indiana sometime after 27 July 1850 (when he appeared in the 1850 U. S. census in Milo Twp.), and before his death on 28 January 1855 in Fountain County. With his father and siblings in Indiana, it is possible that James3 McClean (William2, John S.1) also decided to move his family to Indiana; perhaps around the same time (1850-1855), or later. Fountain County is not that far from White County where James McLean #2 was eventually buried.
Comparing the few facts known for James3 McClean (William2, John S.1), James F. McLean (#1) and James McLean (#2) does not necessarily preclude that all three are the same man. However, there are two burials, and taken on face value the existence of two different burials would seem to preclude that James F. McLean (#1) who died in New York in 1852 is the same man as James McLean (#2) who died in 1891 and was buried in Indiana.

B. Who was the real Lydia (Lyon) McLean?

Not only do we have three James McLeans, it seems we also have two Lydia (Lyon) McLeans, who each married a James McLean:

It is feasible that these two women are the same person. Their dates of birth aren’t that far off, allowing for the errors in ages listed that were common in census enumerations.
C.
Who was the real William McLean?
Finally, we have the two sons named William to consider:
The William C. McLean11 His name appears with a middle initial (“C.”) only in the 1850 census, not in the 1860 census. who was in his father’s household in the 1850 census and with his mother and maternal grandparents in the 1860 census, and was probably born in Wayne County, New York.
The William Edwin McLean who was buried in Indiana and was born in Red Crook, Wayne County.
The names William and Edwin were common in the McClean family of Benton.
James3 McClean (William2, John1) had a father named William, as well as a brother. He also had an uncle and a cousin named George Edwin, a first cousin named Edwin, and a first cousin named William Edwin. It would not have been unusual for him to choose to name a son, William Edwin.
No record – other than their burials – has been found for James (#2) and Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean and their son William Edwin McLean living in White County. Indiana. William married Sue Ellen Obenchain (various spellings) in Chicago in 1890, and he died there in 1927. However, the 1880 censusiiiiii 1880Monticello: p. 286-A, lines 15-22. shows “Susie Obenchinn” living in her parents household in Monticello, White County. This opens the possibility that she and William met in Indiana first before they married in Chicago. William and his wife “Lulu E.” were living in Chicago in the 1900 censusiviv 1900Chicago34: p. 11, lines 10-14. with a son, William M. who was born in Feb 1893 in Indiana. Thus, though William Edwin and Sue Ellen were married in Chicago, it seems that they had returned to Indiana for some period (at least ca Feb 1893 in time for the birth of their child) before moving back to Chicago in time for the 1900 census.
William Edwin’s father, James McLean (#2), died in 1891 and his mother, Lydia Ann (Lyon), in 1896. William Edwin’s son was born in Indiana in 1893. Thus, one can speculate that following their June 1890 Chicago marriage, William Edwin and Sue Ellen had moved to White County to be near both their parents, and then moved back to Chicago after the deaths of James and Lydia. Sue Ellen’s own parents, Madison Lewis and Morgianna (Armour) Obenchain, still lived on in Monticello, White County, with her father dying there in 1912.vv FindAGrave.com Memorial #41515503.
The next years are confusing and the record is sparse. William Edwin McLean has not been found in the 1910 census, while his wife, Sue Ellen McLean, and their son, William, appeared in 1910 as boarders in the household of an apparently unrelated John Johnson in Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi.vivi 1910Biloxi: p. 1-B, lines 68-72. There is no obvious reason for their presence in Mississippi, or for the absence of William Edwin. In the 1920 census,viivii 1920Chicago: p. 4-A, lines 40-43. William Edwin, Sue Ellen and their son William M. are all back living together in Chicago (with Sue Ellen’s mother living with them).

Conclusions

The James F. McLean buried in Wayne County certainly seems to match
James3 McClean (William2, John S.1) in terms of his dates of birth and death.
It is logical that with his father and siblings in Indiana, James3 McClean (William2, John S.1) would have at some point chosen to move there with his family, as well, and thus could have eventually died there.
The 1850 census and 1853 probate records tell us that those two men were the same, then James3 McClean (William2, John S.1) married a woman named Lydia A. Lyon and had children by her, one of who was named William.
The presence of Asa P. Swartout in the 1850 census, increases the likelihood that the James F. McLean in that census came from Benton Twp.
The Lydia in New York comes close in birth dates to matching the Lydia buried in Indiana.
The son of James F. and Lydia A. McLean, William C., in the 1850 census could well be the same man as the William Edwin born in Wayne County and buried in Indiana. The birthdates and birth places are the same.
Who was the James McLean #2 buried in Indiana, if James3 McClean (William2, John S.1) was the James F. McLean #1 and died in 1852?

Alexander Armstrong McLean was listed as a resident in William F. McLean and Phoebe Clemmens's household in the census report in 1835 at Benton Center, Yates Co., New York, USA; [Note: There are two William McLeans in the 1835 census for Benton. The first one seems to be a couple with no children. The second one has a larger family and more assets. I believe that the 2nd one is the senior Wm McLean, while the younger one is his son.]
