The son of Peter McLellan and Martha Wilson. My Anthony McLellan and Peter McLellan connect back in Scotland. Anthony was a son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Alexander) McLellan of Craigneil, Ayrshire, Scotland (on the border with Kilmarnock). Peter McLellan is said to have come from Northern Ireland to Nova Scotia and is also reputed to descend from Thomas McLellan, so he is perhaps a nephew of my Anthony McLellan. Anthony's wife's name is not presently available in any of the records. Some have said her name was Mary Stewart. Stewart also comes up frequently in Autosomal DNA matches to this region, but so do the surnames McClure/McClurg, McGee/McGhie, Kennedy and Steele.

I have had hits to persons descended from Scottish and Northern Irish Alexanders through the Autosomal DNA test. Scottish and Northern Irish Wilsons also appear rather frequently in the trees of my matches. Have you had hits to persons with these families in their trees?
