McCleary Family Genealogy Forum
The "Sou L ?? McCleary" is Susanna L. Hosack. Susannah and Thomas married in 1899 in Mercer County PA.
I believe that Thomas F. McCleary is the son of John W and Hannah (nee Hanlon) McCleary. They were both born in Ireland, moved when they were young to Scotland and came to the US settling in Elizabeth Township, PA (Buena Vista). The marriage record lists Thomas as being born in Buena Vista in 1868. I have a Thomas F McCleary born (according to census records) around 1969. Based upon his first and last names plus middle initial matching, a relatively close birth year, and the fact that his parents were listed as born in Ireland, I think he's the same person.
Hope that helps a little. If he's the same Thomas F McCleary, I have his ancestors back at least 2 generations. His brother was my great-great-grandfather.
