In answer to Valeries question - what I have is Ketturah/Keturah Burgan was the daughter of Daniel Patrick Burgan and Mary Clymer. Daniel Patrick was the son of Patrick Burgan and Nancy Evens. Keturah married John McClain and had several daughters and two known sons vis Jacob and Elery. Elery was buried in Iowa along with his father John. At some point Keturah and John were separated or divorced with Keturah remaining in PA and John settling in Iowa. Keturah's will had her name as Caturah and she signed it with an X indicating she could not read or write. I did not follow all of her daughters, only Lavina who married Barnet "Barney" Smock and had three sons and one daughter. Both Barnet and Lavina were buried in the Edgar Cemetery, Clay county, Nebraska. My problem of quite a few years was finding the identity of the father of James Burgan who married Barnet's aunt Elizabeth Smock. Just last year it came to light James father was James Patrick Burgan, brother of Daniel Patrick Burgan. Since both men had the middle name of Patrick it created a problem and an error made many years ago. I hope this helps in a small way, Gene Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
