> Only a part of the article.
> Five Sullivan County pioneer families came together with the marriage of
> William Wilson McClellan and katie Creager on Dec 24, 1893 at Cass.
> William Wilson's great-grandfather, Abraham McClellan, was one of the
> first settlers in what is now Sullivan County. The same was true of
> Katie's great-grandfather, Thomas Creager. The first government land
> patents during the years 1816 and 1817 show land being deeded to Abraham
> and Thomas.
> The McClellan family succession was Abraham, Wilson, William and William
> Wilson. William Wilson's mother was Mary Jane Arnett of another pioneer
> family. He was born 7 Feb 1873. (my note: the 1880 Census shows him as
> "Wilson, age 7").
> It goes on to give the Creager succession, plus data concerning William
> Wilson and wife Katie Creager. There is also a write up concerning a
> son of Wm. Wilson and Katie, named Ralph, born 29 Jan 1897.
