The McClure Family - Ohio Branch

I'm researching my husband's family at the are two photos of his grandparents. Above is Floyda Mabel Steiner McClure (1878-1948), of Nevada, Ohio (d. Cleveland).

And here's Brice Larimer McClure, (1878-1970), affectionately known as "The Old Gentleman" in the family. He was born in Little Traverse, Michigan (d. Cleveland). He's named after Brice S. Larimer, his maternal grandfather. 

We're not sure where the name Brice comes from or why it was chosen, since the family tree doesn't yet reflect that name, but we're not very far into this family's research. 2022 update: An ancestor in the family was Brice Smith, clearly the reason why Brice was passed down in multiple generations.


  1. Curious, what does "Little Traverse, Michigan" mean? There is a Little Traverse township in Petoskey township, perhaps that is where he was born?

  2. Hi GrannyPam,

    Little Traverse is in Emmet County, MI. I found an interactive map tour of the bay, which is indeed in Petoskey. Do you know the area?
