Wampler, Elizabeth

Surnames: Wampler, McClellan, McLellan, Steffey, Lung
Elizabeth Wampler was born about 1820 in , Scott County, Virginia. She died about 1880. She was buried in Old Sanders Cemetery, 4 Mile Creek, Lincoln County, West Virginia.
Elizabeth married Harrison Bolton McClellan in Scott County, Virginia. Harrison was born about 1814 in Scott County, Virginia.

She is descended from Hans Peter. I had been told they were Hugeunots, but lately have run across some information that indicates they are melungeon (also called tri-racial isolates the m-word seems to have had a bad history). This information that in Europe they have been Jewish.

I would appreciate any information on whether to pursue this inquiry or just list it as a family myth.

Thanks

Sue
