Birth: Sep., 1832
Pennsylvania, USA

David's parents were Charles and Rachel (Porter) Mc Clain. They had 11 children. David was the 3rd oldest.
Martha McClain Harrison was a sister of David.

David & Phebe were the parents of Hettie, Lewis, Ella, Will and Sadie.

Hettie married John Golding, a great granduncle of mine.

Sadie married someone named Richard White. David McClain is in their house in Arkansas. I found no IL marriage record for her to any White...I did find one to a Burnham but don't know if same Sadie.

David served in the Civil War and applied for a pension for his service in the 51st and 147th regiments.
