My line of Sinclairs were in Perry, Geauga Co. OH on the 1820 census listed David, John, David Jr., Bradbury, and John Sinclear Jr. living there. Another son, Leonard was in Morgan, Ashtabula Co. OH. The 1830 Perry, Geauga Co census shows Joseph St. Clair at Perry, Joseph St. Clair at Harden, Geauga, Joshua at Leroy, Geauga, David at Perry. In 1840 Joshua was in Rockdale, Erie Co. PA beside his wife's Morey relatives.
The Morrison gives this information on John Sr. s/o Col. Richard Sinkler & Polly Cilley. Richard was descended from John Sinkler of Exeter: John Sr. was b. Gilmanton, NH Jan. 13, 1763 d. of TB at Frederick, Schyler Co. IL at the home of his dau Molly who m. 1st Jefferson Rice and resided at Frederick. She m. 2nd Col. Wilcox. pg. 150.
NOTE: The connections to OH and many to southern OH. Many JOHNS and JOSEPHS. My line is Joshua and Rhoda Morey who went to OH, PA and to WI by 1845 d. JUNEAU CO. WI. Have a little more on his siblings Leonard, Abigail, and JOSEPH who also went to WI. Beware of errors in the Morrison book and perhaps some I have done now at 11:30 PM. I haven't copied complete dates and there are pages and pages on the exploits of the very patriotic s/o Richard and Polly who all the older ones, I think, were there with Mad Anthony Wayne as they charged Crown Point and Richard Jr. witnessed the whole Major Andre-Benedict Arnold situation.
John's siblings, children of Richard and Polly were:
