William was an Attorny, a U.S. Congressman from Piqua, Miami Co., OH, and ran a merchantile business in Cincinnati with his friend John Reeves. The business was called "Reeves and McLean".|
He served as congressman from Piqua, Miami Co., OH through the 18th, 19th, and 20th Congresses, from March 4, 1823 to March 3, 1829. William's most important contribution during his service was his key role in obtaining a land subsidy of 500,000 acres to extend the Ohio Canal from Cincinnati to Cleveland. After his retirement, he moved his family from Piqua to Cincinnati, OH. He met an early death as a result of a tuberculois epidemic in Cincinnati. He was the son of Fergus & Sophia (Blackford) McLean. His wife Sarah was the daughter of Charles & Mary B. Fox. They were early pioneers in Warren Co., OH. (my 3rd great uncle on my father's side)
