Bruce, I too think you are related. I see you are waiting on a 37 marker test and should come in very close to M-2 on the Y-results page for our project. As you look at the Y-Results page you will note that two very distinct mutations for your line appear in the 38-67 marker range, and you might wish to add that to your wish list of future DNA upgrade tests. FTDNA has upgrade tests now and then on sale.

Hello! I do believe we are related. My ancestor is Andrew and Mary Devol's son Charles. My lineage is also from Jefferson County IL, and i actually visited the area and some cemeteries last year. Found Charles' and his wife Sallie's graves. The pedigree from Andrew is as follows:
Andrew McClure, b. 11/11/1771, ME, Mary (Polly) Allen Devol
Charles McClure, b. 1/26/1800, Washington County, OH, Sarah B. (Sallie) Webster
Sylvester S. McClure, b. 1829, OH, Crista A. Ward
Oscar Foster McClure, b. 12/27/1856, Moores Prarie, IL, Aurelia A. Rotramel
Clyde Ellsworth McClure, b. 8/10/1892, Bell Rive, IL, Inez R. Cramp
I have also traced the Cramp line (my grandmother is Inez) back. She lived in Douglass County, and before that her family came from Macoupin County, IL.
