Mr. McClelland was a son of Andrew and Prudence Minor McClelland, deceased. He was born in Cumberland township and spent his entire life in this county. At the breaking out of the civil war, Mr. McClelland enlisted in Company F, First Pennsylvania Calvary, under the command of Major J. H. Rea, of Carmichaels. One hundred and seventy men formed the company, of which only nine are now living. He served throughout the conflict with honor and was in many of the great battles of the rebellion.
