John McLain was born in Freeport, Il.(1855) One of the 9 children born to Patrick & Fannie (McGuire) McLain. He married Irene Page in Marshalltown,IA. They resided in Cedar Falls where he died 1932. John was my GreatGrandfathers brother.
Sabrina McLain My grandfather was Melvin Russell McLain. His parents were Franklin and Mary Etta (cole) McLain. Franklin was born in 1865 and they married in Freeport, Ill and had Melvin (and many others) on 1-9-1914. I believe that the John in this picture, was brother's with Franklin. So, this would be my grandfather's uncle. Awesome.
