Please Note : This is the generation where the spelling of McClinton was changed to McLinton  in our branch of the family As the story goes, passed on by my father's cousin, a school teacher changed the spelling around the turn of the 20th Century, as he or she decided it would be easier to spell. The next four generations have been spelling the name McLinton.

Also Note: Jane Maxwell and Sarah Maxwell  were sisters. Jane was seven years older that Sarah who married her brother-in-law, Peter Faulkner McClinton. Jane and her husband Hugh Ernest McClinton settled in the Gatineau area after their marriage, on land acquired from her uncle Sam and Hugh's uncle Samuel. Within a few years, the 1891 Census shows them back in Nepean Township.
