Hello, Just yesterday received a packet of pictures, letters and the like from my father William James McClellan. It appears my great grandmother was a Metherell (Bessie). I have pictures of folks going back to the late 1800s. And the letters indicate that the patriarch of the family came over during the Civil War to work as a miner in Michigan (from Tavistock, England). I don't know the connection to California other than my great grandmother lived in Pittsburg, CA. I don't know much of my family, neither does my father (mostly childhood memories)so hope to learn something that will put stories or names to the pictures.
