Re: 1903 Historical Encyclopedia Lookup

In Reply to: Re: 1903 Historical Encyclopedia Lookup by Richard Clark of 540

Thank you very much, Richard. And thank you especially for the addendum showing that Thomas' father James (my ancestor) owned property in 1877. That argues against the death date of 1865 in the Encyclopedia article, which is further contradicted by the census of 1870 and 1880.

On the other hand, the records of St. Augustine Cem. in Knox County list James' death date as 8 Sep 1865!

If there are any Warren County McClearys out there who can help with James' death date, I hope you'll contact me. You can write to me off-forum at
