McCLUNG GENEALOGY, p. 145

2-3 JOSEPH McCLUNG (Sinking Creek Joe)
G0901
    The second child of John and Jenett Thompson McClung was b. abt 1731. He lived on Sinking Creek in Greenbrier Co., WV in one of the finest agricultural regions in the state. He came to Greenbrier from Rockbridge Co., VA. The exact date of his emigration to Greenbrier is unknown; but it was not later than 1776. Joseph married Margaret Bell abt 1771. She was the daughter of James and Rachel (McCune) Bell. James Bell was b. 1710 in Ireland and died May 1751 in Augusta Co., VA.

    Rev. Wm McClung relates these anecdotes about Joseph McClung. A hog thief once stole some hogs from Joseph. The thief was arrested, convicted and consigned to the whipping poset. At the time appointed for the execution of the sentence, Joseph was present to see it well and adequately done. When the sheriff had finished applying the lash, Joseph, thinking the punishment insufficient, rushed up and grabbing the lash fairly blistered the prisoner with afew additional strokes. The prisoner afterward prosecuted him for this act and made it cost him the worth of a horse. Joseph again sought retaliation. Some time afterward a Baptist revival was conducted in the neighborhood and this same hog-thief was numbered among the converts. When the day arrived for the immersion of this convert in the creek, Joseph McClung was present as a mere spectator. Just as the converted hog-thief emerged from the water, Joseph rushed up to the edge of the stream and cried out: "Will the hair come? If it won't dip him again." This last act cost him the worth of another horse; but he seems to have had more horses than hogs to spare.

    His abhorrence of the papacy is evinced by the following retraction which appeared in the WV Historical Magazine:

    "Whereas, We Joseph McClung and Samuel McClung having heard by sundry unadvised persons that Mr. Andrew Donnally was a Papist and that he had changed his name by omiting an O which should have been prefixed to his Sirname, and whereas, we have unadvisedly published the same and also in an Advertisement which he set up in March, 1775 to warn the inhabitants of Greenbrier to give in a list of their tithables, did prefix the said O to his Sirname; and as we have since by unquestionable evidence been convinced that there is no just foundation for the same, we hereby acknowledge ourselves heartily sorry for the same; and in witness whereof have subscribed this and allow the same to be transmitted to Record.

    Given under our hands and seals this fourth day of March 1776.
