The McLEAN Family

Two distinct and non-related McLEAN families have lived in Randolph. John McLEAN was killed by the Indians near HADDAN's Fort when WARWICK's Company was ambushed. Abner McLEAN, who in 1807, married Phoeba DANIELS was, perhaps, a member of this family. This branch of the family spelled their name McLAIN.

Daniel McLEAN was the first representative of the other branch of the family to locate in Randolph. He was of Scotch-Irish ancestry. Daniel McLEAN came to Randolph from Ann Arundell County, Maryland, at a very early day. He married a Miss WILMOTH of this county. Their children were George, William, Joseph, John, Dawson, Hoy, Noah, Elizabeth, Ann and another daughter, whose name is not remembered, married Adam WESTFALL. Elizabeth married Daniel WEESE. Ann married William FOGGY.

George McLEAN married a Miss RYAN. Children, Julia, Sarah, Jane, Virginia and James E.

James E. McLEAN studied law and although he died when a comparatively young man, he attained prominence at the bar. He was practicing his profession at Buckhannon when a fatal illness brought to a close a promising career.

William McLEAN married a Miss WEESE. Their children were Retus, Sarah, Martha, Mary, Jacob, Elizabeth, Minerva and Fleming.

Joseph, son of Daniel, moved to Illinois. Dawson died in infancy.

John McLEAN married Delila CURRENCE, daughter of John CURRENCE, in 1815.

Hoy McLEAN was twice married. His first wife was Rachael, daughter of Daniel WEESE. Children, Emaline. His second wife was Miss Elizabeth LYTLE. Children, Minerva, who married Rev. W. P. DANIELS; Martha, who married Dr. Thos. L. DANIELS, and Anna, who married F. M. A. LAWSON.

Noah McLEAN, son of Daniel, married Julia MEEK of Augusta County, Virginia. Children, Eliza Ann, who married Nicholas WILMOTH, and Perry H. McLEAN, who moved to Miami County, Indiana, in 1865.

Perry H. McLEAN, son of Noah and Julia (MEEK) McLEAN married Ustena MYERS of his adopted state of Indiana. Their children are Alonzo and J. F. McLEAN.
