Looking for help on this one.I have a Sarah (surname unknown)(1766-1817) who married Samuel McCluer (1764-1833.)
The only reason, although not necessarily a good one, that I think Sarah's surname may be Allen is that there are several grandson's with a middle name of Allen.
My guess is that Samuel McCluer and Sarah would have married somewhere in the time frame of 1785 to 1789.Their oldest son, Thomas McCluer was born 1790 in Rockbridge County, Virginia according to his son John Allen McCluer.However, in a newspaper article by Thomas McCluer, he states he was born in Maryland but raised in Virginia.
Several of Thomas McCluer's brothers were born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, so I am assuming that perhaps Samuel McCluer married either in Virginia or Maryland.
Any connections with McClures/McCluer from those two states that anyone has ran across?
Also, Samuel McCluer had a brother, James McCluer (1766-1828) who married a Rebecca (surname unknown.)
