Thomas McClelland Western PA in circa 1809
Posted by: Ellen Childs (ID *****5133) Date: December 15, 2007 at 17:29:37
  of 1965

My great great great grandmother was a Jane Dumars who was born in Ireland of French emigre stock, and married Thomas McClelland, a Methodist missionary trained by Charles and John Wesley to introduce Methodism to Western Pennsylvania. I have found mention of him in histories of Methodism in Pennsylvania, but can't trace the Dumars family. The McClellands settled in Sewickley in Allegheny County, but Thomas was a Methodist circuit rider, and was associated with all of Western Pennsylvania. He died in 1820, an in 1824 Jane Dumars McClelland requested quardianship for Rebecca C. Way McClelland (later Ralston) and James Dumars and John Way were appointed. Does anyone know anything about these people?
