My McClure
Direct Lineage

MY MC CLURE FAMILY TREE

The United States was the first country to call for a regularly held census. The Constitution required that a census of all “Persons...excluding Indians not taxed” be performed to determine the collection of taxes and the appropriation of seats in the House of Representatives. The first nine censuses from 1790-1870 were organized under the United States Federal Court system. Each district was assigned a U.S. marshal who hired other marshals to administer the census. Governors were responsible for enumeration in territories.  There are many similar names, as the vocabulary of the times was very small.  Errors are also difficult to prove because few could spell, read or write.  Thus small irregularities will occur.

Census images are found at Heritage Quest, which can be accessed free via your local library.  It is hoped that the correct one was found, some of the older ones are very badly degraded and their spelling and penmanship leaves something to be desired.  I collected over 60 census images.  These are not all reprinted in this book, but can be found linked to the family website (http://www.ancestrysearcher.com/McClureMainPage.html) or at the abovementioned Heritage Quest.

What follows is a truncated version of what may be found at the above Rootsweb page.  The document I used as my primary source was well over 100 pages long as many of the end names were still living and show limited information. I have also made corrections where necessary, but have not made changes to the document entitled
