Hi Janet,

My Grandfather was Thomas Stanford McClerkin of Henderson County, TN. His father was James McClerkin. Both came to live in Dyersburg, Dyer County where my mother was born.

The question is do you make a connection with these two groups of McClerkins?

Happy to share, jreeder@aristotle,net in Little Rock, AR
