Comments on Mary (Van Buren) Oury

On 15 Feb 2020 Charles Patterson wrote on Van_Buren-220:

Research on Geni by Harold Altman through and supports the fact that Mary Oury's maiden name was McClellan and that Van Buren was her middle name. Ancestry states that "Adam Ourey married Mary McClellan and had 15 children." Genealogy (with over 450 sources of input) reports "Adam Ourey married Mary McClellan 4/2/1787 in Greensburg, Westmorland County, PA" and the D.A.R. reports her middle name as Van Buren. If you cannot find exception to this I would appreciate if you could change the maiden name to McClellan.

Mary Oury (Owrey) was my 4th great grandmother. Her brother was Thomas McClellan. Van Buren was a middle name used by several in the family.

Thank you, you have confirmed my original inquiry.  Van Buren is her middle name and not her maiden name.  Her Wikitree profile lists her as Van_Buren-220 and should be changed to McClellan. I forgot to add that she is also my 4th great great grandmother.

What sources have you found for this please.

As I stated, on Harold Altman's Genie profiles of Mary Oury and her husband, George Adam, he lists various resources for this conclusion.
When I asked there was no link to genie, and I have no account there.
Try these

Besides, her brother was Thomas McClellan
