Re: McClanathan Surname
I saw your McClanathan post on the Genforum site. I am descended on my mother's side from an Elizabeth "Betsy" McClanathan, born in New York State 29 November 1818 and died in Wisconsin 5 January 1908. The birth date isn't verified, but was on her death certificate. No information on her parents is available, but she had a brother, James McClanathan, who was living with her family in Wisconsin.
My Elizabeth married John Aldrich Harrison of Lockport, Niagara Co., New York. They probably married in New York State but I have no records on their marriage.
Do any of these names ring a bell for you?
Your help is much appreciated!
