Hello Brian, i too am a McClure of Donegal researcher. Just to clarify a few things - James and andrew are brothers? Halbert Samuel is son of James? Up until a couple of years ago there was a McClure DNA website that a lot of information with many mixed messages of the Halbert McClure line. You may  still something on a google search to assist. What are your sources to confirm the B/D dates of Andrew, James and Halbert?

Cheers

Hello Brian, forgot to say welcome to Rootschat. My afore mentioned McClure DNA Project your line is known as the Virginian McClures and/or Halbert McClure line.
They are part of the Halbert and Richard McClure of the Findrum, Convoy, Raphoe, County Donegal Northern Ireland study.
My line is thru Richard McClure. Richard is older than Halbert and possibly his Uncle.
When you have completed 3 posts send me a personal message and i will provide names associated with the McClure DNA project who maybe able to help you further.

Cheers
