Unfortunately, Robert St. Clair is the ONLY one that I know about.  He was
my greatgrandfather and moved on to Summers Co. WV (Lockbridge) where many
of his descendants still reside today (including my dad).  It was the rest

parents William & Mary and Robert's 3 (known) siblings, Malinda, Louisa, and
