Hugh McClurg b. 1777 York Co. PA

First, thank-you to all who have posted to this forum! I have learned a ton from reading through past posts. I am in search of information regarding Hugh McClurg - My mother (Kim) and I have been working on the family history and have recently proven the assumed connection between David McClurg (b. 1827) and Hugh as father-son via a death certificate for David.

However from there Hugh has been a dead-end... I thought I would try the process of elimination because you all know so much about James McClurg (b. 1696 Scotland) and from what I can tell it looks like Hugh could not be a son of James's son John as his line is believed extinct, nor could he be a son of Samuel as he wasn't married until 1787, and there is no mention of a Hugh as a son of William (b. 1755). Can anyone confirm this for me? Hugh is of the right age to have been a son of William, but the William line appears to all have moved out of PA to VA/IA/TN/IN and not OH (where my family is from).

This leaves the genetic connection likely a result of a link to James's other son Walter, or to another son or possibly brother of James in my estimation, but I would love to hear your thoughts.... many thanks in advance!
