McClatchey Family Genealogy Forum
In a follow up to Joy below I described one line of the Pennsylvania McClatcheys. As your post is quite old, I suspect that you have already obtained much of the information I am about to recite. The Robert McClatchey who married Susan Huffman is the son of Charles McClatchey, one of the children born to the immigrating McClatchey family while they resided in Lancaster County, PA. Charles had a twin sister Elizabeth and he was married to Elizabeth Crawford in a double ceremony in which his twin Elizabeth married James Donaldson. This marriage took place in Derry Twp, Westmoreland Cty, PA. Charles and his wife Elizabeth had a number of children while in Derry, among whom is purportedly Robert. Robert eventually moved to Armstrong Cty and died in the county seat, Kittanning. Charles lived in Sugar Grove, Armstrong Cty for a while and was a founding elder of the Middlesex (now Cowansville) Union Presbyterian Church in 1802, a date two years prior to Robert's birth, which makes me question the claim that Robert was born in Derry, and not Armstrong Cty. Charles later moved up the Allegheny River to Clarion Cty, PA, where he taught school, dying in 1839. Much information about this line of the family is provided in a family history written by Carol-Jeanne Turk.
