Looking at a list on Ancestry after 1911
1 Martha to New York
2 Matilda to New Jersey
3 Joseph to New York
4 John to ?
5 David to ?
6 Robert to ? we found he stayed at home
7 Arthur to ?
This was dated 2010, has any more been found on the family.
1911 give 9 children 8 living so two names missing.

James  Mclean b 1882

Church  record for Martha Elizabeth is April 1883, the Civil record is listed as Elizabeth  in May 1883 so most likely the same person.
