McClain World as of 1 June 2014
A website dedicated to tracing the lineage of James McLain and Sarah Reichart.
(with special rememberance to Kirby L. McClain III (click here), who began this effort and dearly loved being a McClain)
AS DOCUMENTED ON THEIR HEADSTONES -- there was a 'disagreement' of how to spell McClain.
Sarah Ann McLain Foust (1834-1906), David W. McLain (1838-1870), and Henry L. McLain (1841-1922) all spelled
their last name -- with the same spelling as that of their Father, Joseph A. McLain (1811-1873); with a capital ‘L’.
In contrast, Samuel B. McLaine (1843-1917) and Franklin P. McLaine 1853-1916) spelled their last name with an ‘e’ at the end.
While George W. McClain (1848-1927) and Jacob C. McClain (1855-1937), both spelled their last name with a capital ‘C’,
as in McClain World. Does the name-feud continue to this day? It depends upon who you ask.
(David + Henry = 13 kids, Samuel + Franklin = 11 kids, and George + Jacob = 12 kids)
