Thank you Michael.You provided some information that I hadn't had before.
James McClain m. Anne Eliza Green (abt 1849 in OH - 1873) They had the following children: James Alonzo McClain (Jun 1865 - ?) m. Maggie E. Freed (abt 1864 - ?) Eliza Alice McClain (abt 1866 - ?) m. Eli Pickett Effie Rosella McClain (Dec 31 1872 - Jan 19 1946) (my great-grandmother) m. Benjamin Franklin Freed (Oct 12 1874 - Jun 03 1938)
Anne Eliza Green's parents were: Alben Green (abt 1822 - 1855) Nancy Ann Duvall (abt 1823 - ?)
I'm not sure if James McClain was the son of Joseph and Almira McClain.Do you know?Also, there was a Benjamin Franklin McClain (May 30 1845 - Aug 30 1925) and family that also lived in Young America in the late 1800s, but not sure if they are related to our McClain family.
