      Andrew McCleish and Mary Jane Franklin McCleish:
      The same notes on the members of this family have been passed around (without original credit), in so many databases, I cannot determine who wrote the original notes.
      Of the marriages of Andrew McCleish (Jr.) the notes are, "MARRIAGES: First to Mary Jane Franklin, born 16 May 1821, died 1 Dec 1866, mar. 2nd Mrs. Mary Dolan Titus., born 1824, died 1891, res. Waslingham Twp. then Malahide Twp., Elgin Co, Ont. had 6 children, all in Mabie book. His son, Andrew born 1844, lived in Walsingham Twp and then moved to Michigan. Andrew McCleish, the only son, was twice married. By his first wife, Jane Franklin, he had three sons, Andrew, George and Austin; and three daughters, Sarah, Rachel and Helen. Subsequently he married Mrs. Titus,nee Mary Dolan, by whom he had one son, Bruce. Mr. McCleish settled in Walsingham, and died in Aylmer when about sixty years old, and none of his children remain in Norfolk. The sons are all in the States --Andrew being in Michigan, one daughter settled in Manitoba, one in Aldborough,and «b»Helen married James Chute, and settled on Nova Scotia Street, Malahide.«/b» The name has become extinct in Norfolk."
      The source references for the notes appear to be:
      1. «i»6,000 New York Ancestors: A Compendium of Mabie Research«/i» by R. Robert Mutrie. Published by Second Ave Printing Ltd., 86 Second Ave, Simcoe, Ontario, N3Y 2P3, CN.

      2. «i»Broderbund's World Family Tree Vol. 1«/i» (with estimated dates only).

      3. «i»PIONEER SKETCHES OF LONG POINT SETTLEMENT«/i» by E.A. Owen. Publisher's information not included.

      Of the McCleish/Mabee/Montross family histories, the notes read, "[Andrew McCleish, Sr. was] married in New Brunswick, CN before 1797, according to R. Mutrie in Mabie Book. After the [Revolutionary War?], he obtained a land grant in New Brunswick and settled there. In 1807, they followed the Montross family to the Long Point Settlement and were granted 400 acres, Lot 8 and 9, Conc, IV, Charlotteville Twp., Norfolk County. They had 1 son and 11 daughters. A favorite saying among their neighbors was, "They had 11 daughters and each had 1 brother, so how many sons did they have?" He was a Farmer, Baptist, a U.E. Loyalist, and a British Soldier. He died before the rebellion of Canada."
      The dates listed here seem too late for the Revolutionary War, although he may have been a land grant beneficiary of the post-Revolutionary War exodus from Canada of pre-war Loyalists.
