Re: McLin's in Minnesota

I may be barking up the wrong family tree. I have located a John McLinn from the county in question in Minnesota, married to Cathrine, who had a daughter named Margaret born in very early 1880, but he was a farmer born in Illinois around 1847. His father (given in earlier censuses as James McLin and James Macklin) came from Ireland in the late 1830's.
If there was an ex-Confederate soldier named McLin who came to Minnesota after the war, he was at best just a relation and at worst somebody's attempt to spice up a family tree dominated by farmers, tailors and dry goods clerks.
