I know this is the McCleary Forum but I know that these surnames have blended back and forth somewhat in spellings.
My Aunt Rebecca (my dad Charles Swearingen Jr.'s sister) has traced us from their mom Madge Marilyn McClary through her father James Dyghton McClary (b1909 in MO), to his father Thomas Lafayette McClary (b1880 in MO) to his father Thomas Dyghton McClary (b1836 in OH) to his father Joshua McClary (b1806 in DE).
This is where we are stuck. We cant find anything on Joshua McClarys parents nor Eliza Cobb (b1809 in VA)
If anyone has any information please email me and put McClary in the subject line.
