This is a brickwall surname that I am hoping to obtain at least immigration information on, and then maybe (hopefully?) I can learn names of other children that were born to him in both South Carolina and Tennessee. Perhaps he wasn't the first McLean of his line to arrive in America, but I'm not sure of this. The only information I have for him is that his name is Matthew, he has 3 known children: Matthew, b. ca 1797 in South Carolina; John, birth unknown; and Rosanna, b. 24 February 1801 (or 1803) in South Carolina. I found the Matthew McLean family residing in York County, S.C., in 1800. I am not sure of the elder Matthew's wife's name, but others researching state it is Mary Powell. I am not sure when or where he was born, but some state he died in Tennessee in 1804, whilst another researcher shows he and his wife had a son born sometime between 1801-1810. Any suggestions on where to look would be greatly appreciated. Tennessee appears to be among those states who had "Lost Censuses", and with fires and other travesties happening, lots of documents have been lost.
