Thought I'd post this.Only one Ahl mentioned, but it's an early date.Mostly McClure information, but maybe someone can glean something from it.The book wasn't clear whether the marriage in North Carolina or Pennsylvania.But looking at the date of John McClure's land entry (5 years after marriage date), I'm assuming that the marriage occurred in North Carolina.Maybe a place to look. Just a thought.
