NATHAN McCLURE, farmer, P.O. Ada, was born in Ireland, January 15, 1808. He came to the United States about 1831 or 1832, and was married to Maria Walker, by whom he had three children-Elizabeth, Margaret and John. The latter was killed by a fall from a horse, at the age of eleven years. Mrs. McClure died when twenty-seven years of age, and Mr. McClure subsequently married Elizabeth Hughs, born in Ireland March 12, 1819, and who came to America at the age of five years. Five children resulted from this union, viz.: Mary Ann, Alexander, Robert, Rebecca and Matilda. Mr. McClure came to Hardin County in 1857, and settled on Section 10, where he has since resided, and where he is occupied in cultivating his nice farm of eighty acres. On April 7, 1877, his house was burned, entailing a great loss to him. Mr. McClure is industrious and peaceable, and is one of the useful citizens of Marion Township.
