Lori French & John Shroyer John was right about the McClain's. David McClain married Elva Shroyers mother about 1876 and Elva married his brother Jacob McClain about 1900.Strange? Elva was David's stepdaughter. her father according to the stories was kill in the war. am not for sure at this time on Elva's mothers name. The Ernest and mildred McClain in which he referred too was my grandparents. Ernest McClain was the son of Jacob and Elva McClain. I have tried to contact John about this but then seen yours as well and thought it might help. could you let me know more on Elva's mother please let me know. Am not for sure if shroyer was her married name (take it it was ) or she went back to her maiden after her husband of a short time died.
