About John Maclay

It appears from the attached Census records showing "John McClay" as the only McClay or Maclay in John G's birthplace Chenango County New York (per Federal Census records) in 1828 that John G's father was probably named John and Maclay and McClay were used interchangeably.

There is no documentation that John Maclay, who arrived in New York City in 1827 from the UK is the father of John G. However, at this time no record has been found of other Maclays entering the state of New York in this time frame that are candidates to be John G's father, i.e. born in Scotland and resident in the US in 1828.
