Hubby's 3d great-grandparents (John McClure and Ann McFall) married in Rockbridge county, Virginia, in 1801. One of their sons was Benjamin McClure (1812-1896), the subject of my Facebook genealogy experiment (which has attracted one McClure researcher so far).
Actually, it seems to be a Scots-Irish connection. I still have more work to do proving the connection, of course...
How appropriate that I can showcase one of hubby's three Irish ancestral links during the week leading up to St. Patrick's Day!
