Kelley, January 25, 1976.It reads in part:"James Kelley was married in 1850 to Susan McClain.They were the parents of 11 children. (Names listed)Susan McClain was born in Perry County Ohio, Dec. 18, 1833.She was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Mauller McClain, both were natives of Pennsylvania.The family moved to Grant County In. in 1846.The McClain family has been described as one of the old established families of America.They were of Scotch-Irish extraction and were located in New England and eastern states in the colonial days.The family has been identified with the colonization period and fought in the early wars of the country, including the American Revolution."
