I've received information from Beaver County, PA Genealogical Society. Their records indicated James Parkley McHaffie (of Beaver County, PA, b. 12/22/1829, d. 1/26/1921) married Margaret Jane McClure (of Mt. Hope, Holmes, Ohio, b. 2/5/1825, d. 6/3/1902).

I've also found in Delayed Birth Registation Index of Beaver County, PA (R 974.892 D343) that James Parkley McHaffie was born in Beaver County, PA.

I think this is the connection. When James C McClure mustered out of the Union Army, he was in Beaver, Pennsylvania. The McHaffie family was also located in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. James and Maraget both married into the McHaffie family. I don't know whom met whom first, but the pieces fit together.
