|I am looking for any information regarding my great-grandfather, John McLane, whom I am told was born in Ireland.He spent some time in Yorkshire, England before immigrating to the U.S. about 1857.He then settled in Cleveland, Ohio where he was a stone mason.|
He was married to Jane Willman, who was born in England in 1833 and her father's name was Jonas Willman.They has three children but I only know the names of two.My grandfather John Edward McLane and his older sister Eliza.John Edward was born January 10, 1857 and his sister was born around 1855-1856.
Something happened to my great-grandfather between 1857, when he immigrated to the U.S., and 1873-1874, when my great-grandmother remarried.She married a man named James Henry.
I have some record on my great-grandmother but nothing on my great-grandfather, except the little information I was told.I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me on my search.
