Charles James McClure and Jennie Priscilla Warren

Charles James MCCLURE was born 28 Aug 1862 in New York. He died 28 May 1935 at 72 in Medical Lake, Spokane, Washington. He was the son of James and Martha MCCLURE.

On 14 July 1888, Charles married Jennie Priscilla WARREN in Buffalo, NY.

Jennie was the daughter of Daniel Henry WARREN and Harriet Louis HARRIS. She was born 21 Sept. 1864 in Lowell, Orleans Co., VT, and died 7 July 1939 at 74.

Charles James MCCLURE appears in the Buffalo, New York Directory in 1890. He was a telegraph operator living “over 21 Tennessee”.

I’m aware that he worked as a telegraph operator for the railroad, at least when young, for which reason Albert was born in Utica MN, and know they were living in northern Idaho when Albert was 10 years of age in 1910.

Children were:

  • John “Johnnie” F. b. April 1889 in New York
  • Ruth C. b. 1894 July 1 in Pennsylvania, died 1975 July in Leavenworth, Chelan, Washington, married 1934 Nov 14 in Chelan, Washington to Eunace Samuel Gaines b. 1897 July 29 in Missouri, died 1975 April in Leavenworth, Chelan, Washington.
  • Gertrude Martha b. August 1896 in Pennsylvania, died 1947 Jan 14, a patient at Eastern State Hospital, Medical Lake, Spokane, Washington
  • Albert Harry b. 1900 Oct 25 in Utica, Winona, Minnesota, died 1987 Oct 8 m. Dorothy M. Mitchell
