     ; 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:

There are graves in Indiana for a couple, James McLean and Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean with a son, William Edwin McLean, recorded in the Old Monticello Cemetery in Monticello, White County, Indiana.ii[:ITAL]iiii FindAGrave.com Memorials #141474776 (James), #41180623 (Lydia), and #41180726 (William).

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).

D.
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?

     ; 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.

[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.

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:

There are graves in Indiana for a couple, James McLean and Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean with a son, William Edwin McLean, recorded in the Old Monticello Cemetery in Monticello, White County, Indiana.ii[:ITAL]iiii FindAGrave.com Memorials #141474776 (James), #41180623 (Lydia), and #41180726 (William). There are grave markers for Lydia Ann and William Edwin, but none for James. The information given on FindAGrave.com is as follows:

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).

D.
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?

     ; 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.

[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:

There are graves in Indiana for a couple, James McLean and Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean with a son, William Edwin McLean, recorded in the Old Monticello Cemetery in Monticello, White County, Indiana.ii[:ITAL]iiii FindAGrave.com Memorials #141474776 (James), #41180623 (Lydia), and #41180726 (William). There are grave markers for Lydia Ann and William Edwin, but none for James. The information given on FindAGrave.com is as follows:

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).

D.
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?

William C. McLean1

M, #96112, b. April 1850
FatherJames F. McLean1 b. c 23 Oct 1816, d. 13 Sep 1852
MotherLydia A. Lyon1 b. bt 1818 - 1819
Last Edited3 Apr 2021
     William C. McLean was born in April 1850; Aged 3 months in 1850 census.1
     ; 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.

[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:

There are graves in Indiana for a couple, James McLean and Lydia Ann (Lyon) McLean with a son, William Edwin McLean, recorded in the Old Monticello Cemetery in Monticello, White County, Indiana.ii[:ITAL]iiii FindAGrave.com Memorials #141474776 (James), #41180623 (Lydia), and #41180726 (William). There are grave markers for Lydia Ann and William Edwin, but none for James. The information given on FindAGrave.com is as follows:

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).

D.
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?
