In Reply to: Uriah McClave married Fanny Reeves in New York by Sandra Jagger Gauthier of 32

Don't know if you are looking for ancestors or descendents (or both) of Uriah McClave & family. I was researching them a few years ago after I found Uriah's grave (d. 20 June 1850) about 10 miles from where I live (just north of Palmyra, NY). But I have not been able to connect him to my McClaves, at least not since the early 1700s. (Probably a connection back in Wigtown, Scotland.)

I have some of the children you mention, plus some others; see below.

I have Uriah's wife as "Olive" (gravestone) and "Olle" (1855 NY census). In the 1855 NY census for Marion, NY (just N. of E. Palmyra), she is listed as "Olle McLane", age 54, with 9 children living with her. This would give her a birth year of 1800/01.

Information on Olive Reeves and her ancestors can be found at This shows Olive's birth date as 28 May 1801 and that she had a sister, Fanny, B 1803.

Before the early 1800's the McClave surname is often spelled "McCleave" or McCleve"

See also the "McCleave" Genforum page, especially "Abigail McCleave m. Joseph Rich 1800 CT"
