Montanye PA to Ohio
Posted by: James W McCluer Date: December 18, 2000 at 07:27:40
  of 90

My third great grandfather John A. McCluer married a Clarinda Nace. Clarinda was from Luzerne Co. PA. It is a supposition of mine that Clarinda's mother Polly was a Montanye and that Polly's sister, Elizabeth married a Nesbitt.

A note in John A. McCluer's diary notes: "Aunt Elizabeth Nesbitt dau. of Isaac & Mary Montonia died Mar 21-72." John A. McCluer had another Aunt named Rhoda who was also a Montanye. Rhoda Montanye married Samuel McCluer, Junior, uncle to John A. Rhoda Montanye died May 09, 1870, Richland County, Ohio at the age of 62 according to John A. McCluer's note.

I'm assuming that Elizabeth, Polly and Rhoda Montanye were sisters and daughters of Isaac and Mary Montanye of PA?

One more thing, according to land records, Abraham Nesbitt and Thomas Nace purchased land in present day Morrow County, Ohio (then Richland County, Ohio). Thomas Nace was the father-in-law of my third great grandfather, John A. McCluer. Abraham Nesbitt is the presumed husband of Elizabeth Montanye Nesbitt. Is this correct?
