My McLain family is primarily from North Dakota, but it can be tracked back to Ireland....of course.
I am running into problems finding information on my great grandfather, Samuel McClean (McLean). He was born 3/18/1841 in Ireland (county Down I think). He married Mary Jackson while in Donaghadee Ireland (county Down) and they emigrated to the U.S. in 1880, settling in Iowa. I am looking for any information on the McCleans or Jacksons while in Ireland. I would also be happy to share all of the other research I have on the family upon request.
