I tried to send you an E-mail, but it would not go. I am Gertrude McClain Dodson and I come from Captain John McClain (1760-1844) who was born in Pennsylvania. This family migrated to Rutherford County, N.C., S.C. and Georgia.
I saw your query in RootsWeb dated May 1, 2001. I will be happy to exchange information. Would love to hear from you. I am in the same McClain family with Simon Banister; so, if you are in his family you are in mine.
I organized the McClain Reunion in S.C. in 1982. We held it in S.C. for 21 years and had to move it to Georgia last year. This year will be our 23rd. I will be happy to send more information, but I will need your snail mail address.
