·          A Judge McLean built the farm on which Lincoln Edward Reynolds resided near Battenville, New York.

·          Henry McLean, a cousin of Fitch McLean, had a son, Louis, who was a friend of Lawrence Watson Reynolds (son of Lincoln).  Louis had been a page in the Senate.  He had a daughter, Carrie, who resided at Shushan and was a little younger than Maude Elise (Reynolds) Bryant, Lincoln’s oldest child.

·          Cornelia McLean reportedly married a McFarland, but this conflicts with her gravestone.

·          The Maxwells were relatives.
