My McClurg family migrated from Killyleagh Co., Down, Ireland to the Town of Richmond, Ontario County. McClurg Road is named after them. 
 
They appear in a number of the Ont. Co census starting in 1850 though the name was misspelled McClury then. In 1855 Town of Richmond census they are spelled Mclurg. In 1860 Town of Richmond census name is spelled McClerg. In the 1865 Town of Richmond census they finally get it right: McClurg. But in the 1870 Town of Richmond census the name is spelled McClery. From the combination of first names there is no doubt that each of these misspellings is the one and same family, McClurg.
