2.  Confusion existed about which Michael Clore was the son of George Clore and which was the son of John Clore.  The sources in this endnote may have given Michael as the son of John because I am including all references to the birth of either.  Claude Yowell, author of Germanna Record #10, stated that Dr. Arthur Leslie Keith, author of the William and Mary Quarterly article about the 1717 Colony, had come to the conclusion that he was the son of John but gives no reason.  Many thanks to Nancy Moyers Dodge and John Blankenbaker for proving the Michael Clore who married Margaret Weaver was most likely the son of George based on land records and the baptismal records of Hebron Lutheran Church.  Keith, p 181 date only given as about 1745-1750, p 182 says unsure which Michael was the son of John and which the son of George; Correspondence from John Clore to Howard D.
