Has anyone done actual research in the original records of Augusta County on the early McClures of Augusta County. Most of what I see is based on quotes from Chalkley--books which are helpful but often very misleading and incomplete. I once hired a researcher, now deceased, to obtain copies of the original records (on another family--not McClure) abstracted in Chalkley and the originals revealed a wealth of names and information not even mentioned in his brief notes. But before I proceed with any original research, I would like to be sure I not duplicating what others may have done.
