This shows a marriage between a John McClelland (30) & Julia Cole/Cobe/Cofe (18) on 17 Nov 1868 in Jefferson, Arkansas
I'm not sure how to read these pension cards...does this show John dying on 6 Oct 1904(?) and Julia dying on 29 Aug 1912?
According to this, Jesse passed away in 1882, at age 55 in Arkansas

Melissa Ann Wade born abt 1832 in Indiana or Kentucky, she had a brother named Jarret Wade; I believe her father was Tom Wade & she married Jesse Calvin McClelland
EstesSandi was also interested in McGhie's in Ontario, Canada (2009) & Ida Houston (2005)
There was a question about McClelland's in Tennessee from Gayle Powell (2003)
Do you have access or any information about Calvin McClelland in Ohio? I am looking for a Calvin McClelland in Ohio. He was the father of my great grandfather Othie McClelland. Othie was an engineer on the railroad and from what I understand so was his father. They have been impossible to find in the census, etc. I know that Othie was born in Ohio, in 1866, but no idea where. His father, Calvin, would have been born before 1850; but it would be possible for Othie to have a brother named Calvin. I figured his father was in the civil war and came home and Othie was then born. I know nothing about this family, except they were supposed to have a ton of boys and no girls and were Yankees with New York connections.
