Just a note in response to Bob and his note regarding Dr. Hiram Pitchlynn. A success story if there ever was one. His wife,Desire Ann Morrow born in April 1828 in Clear Creek Township, Warren, Ohio, and was the daughter of Lucinda D. Blair and Abel Morrow. Lucinda D. Blair was the daughter of Desire McLean, older sister of The Honorable John McLean, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, and John Blair. John McLean was best known for one of two dissenting opinions in the famous Dred Scott slavery case. Desire McLean Blair and John McLean had a younger brother who was a U.S. Congressman from Ohio, William McLean. Also, another brother, Nathaniel McLean, was an agent for the Sioux Nation in Minnesota and fought for years to try and get a fair deal for the Sioux. William McLean headed the Indian Affairs committee while in Washington DC (then Washington City) and also tried very hard to stop unfair treatment of the native americans. Unfortunately, their efforts didn't reap much in success. But they were dedicated. I assume you all ready know who the children of Dr. Hiram Pitchlynn and Desire Ann Morrow were. I am a direct descendent of Desire McLean and John Blair, through a younger brother to Lucinda D. Blair, and I am 25% native american. Mostly Eastern Cherokee.
