Hello. There is a John McCleave who was born 21 Sept. 1778 in Maryland. He married Mary Benefiel 24 Feb. 1801 in Hamilton Co., OH. Mary was the daughter of Col. John Benefiel and Rebecca Fitzjames. John died 1846 in Lawrence Co. IL and is buried in the McCleave Cem. Mary died 1860 in Lawrence Co. and is also buried in the McCleave Cem. John and Mary's oldest son was William. His first wife was Nancy Benefiel. Nancy died in 1826 and William married his cousin Betsy. I believe you may have William and John mixed up. Would love to hear from a McCleave Cousin. Michele
