Robert Patterson was born in Ireland and immigrated to America where he married Mary Riggs in 1788, a daughter of Phillip & Polly (Pierce) Riggs, in Lower Smithfield, Northhampton, Pennsylvania. Little is known by this family historian of Robert's childhood and early years, or his passage from Ireland to America. His parentage remains unknown.

Robert was a skilled carpenter and moved to the new settlement of Benton, Yates County, New York about 1797 with his wife Mary and their 5 children. He built their home on their wilderness farm, lot 43 in township No. 8 in Yates County, New York where their number of children increased to 10. During his career his occupations were described between ingenious and noted mechanic, carpenter, architect and builder. By 1810 he reserved his place in history as the builder of the first church edifice in the same township where he dwelled. As well as a surveyor of roads in the early 1800's.

Robert and Mary had 10 children, 6 sons and 4 daughters: Ira S., Elizabeth, John, William, Rhoda, Mary, Reuben R., Robert, Adelia A., and Hiram R. Patterson.

Both Robert and Mary Patterson are buried at the Benton Rural Cemetery in the old section, Yates County, New York.

The Patterson's, Riggs, Scofield's and numerous other related families are recorded in the book History of Yates County, New York, published in 1872.

     James McLean was born circa 1779 at prob. Fermanagh Township, Cumberland Co. (now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA; Sexton [1883:263] lists James first in his list of the children, but doesn't give dates of birth for any of them. DAR Applications No. 6462887 and No. 780904 have a DOB of 1777. However, this would have been two years before his parent's marriage (31 Aug 1779). Many DAR applications do not list a child named James, but do list the other 9 children born after James. DAR Application No. 866451 gives 1779 as the year of birth (the same year as his parents' marriage).1,2,3,4

(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 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.

     George Edwin McLean was born on 7 March 1793 at prob. Fermanagh Township, Cumberland Co. (now Juniata Co.), Pennsylvania, USA; Place of birth: Jordan [1915:III:1683] says he was born in Lancaster Co., PA. on 7 March 1793. Sexton [1883, p. 268] says he was born at Castle Farm, Geneva, Ontario Co., NY. (along with his sister deborah), but gives no DOB. Evidence shows that his family didn't move to N.Y. until 1796. The 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses all say he was born in PA. The McLean bible says b. 7 May 1795; three DAR applications day b. 7 March 1793, four say b. 7 May 1793.1,4,5,6,3,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19 He married Elizabeth Sebring, daughter of Abraham Sebring and Nancy Harris, on 19 November 1815.2,20,6,21

(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.

George Edwin McLean was listed as a resident in John S. McLean and Sarah Armstrong's household in the census report in 1810 at Benton, Oneida Co. (actually Ontario Co.), New York, USA; On same page as George ARMSTRONG and John ARMSTONG. Note: This census is recorded as Benton, in Oneida Co., however, I am convinced that it is mis-filed and that this is the town of Benton in then Ontario Co. (now Yates Co.) There is a discussion list on Ancestry about this mis-labeling at http://boards.ancestry.com/localities.northam.usa.states.newyork.counties.oneida/3305.2.1.1/mb.ashx

; from Bates [1884:VI:173]:
     "George McLean, one of Erie co.'s most respected pioneers, was born in Lancaster Co., Penn., March 7 1793; at an early age, he removed to Prattsburg, Steuben Co., N. Y., and after a residence there for a number of years, he came to Waterford, this county, and passed here the remainder of his life., his demise occurring March 17, 1872. By earnest toil and unremitting industry he accumulated quite a competency. His family consisted of Joan Whitney, D. S. McLean, W. E. McLean George McLean, Jr., L. H. McLean, J. S. McLean, C. N. McLean, A. P. McLean, Deborah Moore, Drusilla Fullerton and Jane Boyd.
     F. E. & J. C. McLean, proprietors of Union City Times, and sons of Lewis McLean are natives of Erie Co., and although, owing to the circumstances of their family, they were not able to secure educational advantages over the common school, they have made such use of their opportunities that they take a high rank with men of education. They early selected the printing business as their life vocation., acquiring a knowledge of the trade in Union City. In 1878, F. E., the senior member of the firm, undertook the duties of editor and business manager of the Times. In the following year, he purchased an interest in the paper, and in 1882, in association with his brother J. C., he purchased the office, and they have conducted the business since under the firm name of McLean Bros. Politically, F. E. McLean is a Democrat, and has taken a leading and active part in the party progress and workings since he arrived at his majority. He was once the party nominee for the Prothonotary's office, and in 1882 was one of the candidates for the Assembly, but the county being strongly Republican, he was defeated, but made a strong run. J. C. McLean, the junior member of the firm, is a Republican, takes a leading part in the workings of the party, and, although a young man, has bright prospects before him.
     C. N. McLean, Union City, is a native of Steuben Co., N.Y., but in 1833, son of George and Elizabeth (Sebring) McLean, natives of N. Y. State and Tioga co., Penn., respectively, and who settled on a farm in Le Boeuf Township in 1848, where the spent the remainder of their lives. They reared a family of 11 children, 8 now living. Out subject resided on the homestead until 1859, when he came to this city, establishing himself in the grocery trade, which he pursued successfully 20 years. In 1875, Mr. McLean opened his present place of business on Main Street, and has realized a fair and prosperous trade. He served as Constable 4 years and 1 term in the City Council. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and the I.O.O.F., and is a reliable business man of this city. Mr. McLean was united in marriage, in 1869, in this county, with Demarias Wescott, a native of Chautauqua Co., N. Y. Newman C. is the only issue of this union now living."34

     ; from Sexton [1883], p. 268: He [Captain James Goodrich] married Deborah Armstrong McLean at Benton Centre, then Ontario County, N.Y., January 24th 1815. Her father was a Scotch-Irishman, born at Antrim, county Antrim, Ireland, about 1748; who, leaving his widowed mother, Elizabeth Fleming McLean, and a sister, came to America, landing at the city of Philadelphia, after a three months' voyage, in the year 1775. His intention was to see the country, and, if satisfied with it, return the following year and bring his mother and sister; but the embargo on commercial intercourse between the two countries, ensuing on the opening of hostilities that intervened, prevented; and, with that instinct that usually arrays Irishmen against the British government--which influenced many prominent men of that nation, residents in this country at that period, for which a lasting gratitude should be due--he joined the patriot forces as a private. He served three years, enduring much hardship and passing through the battles of Long Island, White Plains and Brandywine, the encampments of Valley Forge and White Marsh, the battles of Germantown, Trenton and Monmouth, and was present at the execution of Major Andre, at Tappan. 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. 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. In 1796 the family removed to Geneva, N.Y., the house hold effects and a part of the family ascending the Susquehanna in a bateau while the farm stock was driven by the way of Williamsport and the Williamson road. Settlement was first made at the Castle farm, three miles from Geneva, where was born Red Jacket, the celebrated Indian chief of the Seneca tribe. Here George McLean and his sister Deborah were born. Subsequently the family moved to Benton Centre, three miles from West Dresden and one and a half miles west of Seneca Lake, and settled on a farm purchased of the Pulteney estate. Here John McLean died August 9th 1841, aged 93 years; and Sarah, his wife, September 8th 1841, aged 88 years; and their remains now lie in the Dresden Cemetery, which overlooks the lake.11,1
; 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.

     ; from Sexton [1883], p. 268: He [Captain James Goodrich] married Deborah Armstrong McLean at Benton Centre, then Ontario County, N.Y., January 24th 1815. Her father was a Scotch-Irishman, born at Antrim, county Antrim, Ireland, about 1748; who, leaving his widowed mother, Elizabeth Fleming McLean, and a sister, came to America, landing at the city of Philadelphia, after a three months' voyage, in the year 1775. His intention was to see the country, and, if satisfied with it, return the following year and bring his mother and sister; but the embargo on commercial intercourse between the two countries, ensuing on the opening of hostilities that intervened, prevented; and, with that instinct that usually arrays Irishmen against the British government--which influenced many prominent men of that nation, residents in this country at that period, for which a lasting gratitude should be due--he joined the patriot forces as a private. He served three years, enduring much hardship and passing through the battles of Long Island, White Plains and Brandywine, the encampments of Valley Forge and White Marsh, the battles of Germantown, Trenton and Monmouth, and was present at the execution of Major Andre, at Tappan. 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. 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. In 1796 the family removed to Geneva, N.Y., the house hold effects and a part of the family ascending the Susquehanna in a bateau while the farm stock was driven by the way of Williamsport and the Williamson road. Settlement was first made at the Castle farm, three miles from Geneva, where was born Red Jacket, the celebrated Indian chief of the Seneca tribe. Here George McLean and his sister Deborah were born. Subsequently the family moved to Benton Centre, three miles from West Dresden and one and a half miles west of Seneca Lake, and settled on a farm purchased of the Pulteney estate. Here John McLean died August 9th 1841, aged 93 years; and Sarah, his wife, September 8th 1841, aged 88 years; and their remains now lie in the Dresden Cemetery, which overlooks the lake.8,1
