4-4 RICHARD McCLUNG
GA0702

The child of John McClung, Sr. was born ca 1791-2 in S.C. (or possibly in GA) The Rev. War Soldier, John McClung states that he enlisted from Edgefield county, SC in 1781. He may have returned there later after marriage. A search of land transfers did not reveal any McClungs in the indexes of those counties.

Jimmy Wayne McClung wrote the story of his family and named it: The McClung Family of Wise County, Texas. He traces his line back to a John McClung that by tradition was called "Sassy Jack" and was a revolutionary war soldier. He estimated the birth of this John to 1755-60.

We know that John moved to Haywood County, NC area about 1806 where he is enumerated in the 1810 census. This county borders Tennessee and was home to the eastern Cherokee.

A year or so before 1820, John took his family to Arkansas. This was the time that the Cherokee Old Settlers went to Arkansas. The family did not remain there long, but went back to Alabama. Either the second wife died in AR or in Alabama. Robert and Richard lived for a time in Blount County, Alabama.

Richard was married to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Brown before 1822 (because the child James Andrew McClung was born in 1822) in Cherokee County, Alabama" according to records of Penny Bashe.

Jimmy W. McClung writes: It was in Blount Co., Alabama that Richard married Peggy Tidwell 23 Jan 1825. We know that one nickname for Margaret is Peggy. Then the year before, Elizabeth McClung married Wright Roden. The relationship between Elizabeth and Richard is not yet proven. Both marriages were performed by Josiah Tidwell, JP. Peggy may have been a sister or half-sister to Josiah.

So far we have not found Richard's family in censuses prior to 1850. Jimmy Wayne McClung notes that the folks in this family were "independent souls who for . . . years lived at the edge of the frontier, shunning the masses and indeed showing a preference for living alongside the Cherokee."

The 1850 census finds Richard living near Oneonta in Blount Co.,AL with three daughters and a lady named Elizabeth (b. 1822). His wife was named Peggy Elizabeth.

When the Civil War came along, this family, "who chose to live on Indian land instead of filing for their own, had no interest in going to war over economic issues. . . They moved during that time period to Arkansas. A grandchild of Richard said that his father had hidden out in the mountainous cliffs of northern Arkansas rather than face conscription by the Yankee army." (McClungs of Wise Co., TX, p. 15)

The passing of Richard is not recorded but it was probably between 1850-60 when the family removed first to Arkansas and then to Texas.

Richard's known children were two sons and possibly four daughters. There may have been more than this but since he was not enumerated in early Blount County records, we have no way of knowing until someone writes in.


This write-up of Richard was sent in by Barbara L. VanNorsdall, a descendant:

Richard McClung

From census records in Alabama, Richard McClung was born about 1791. In the 1850 census of Blount County, Alabama, Richard said he was born in South Carolina. But in later years, his son Benjamin Franklin McClung, said in the 1880 Federal Census that his father (Richard) was born in Georgia. I believe that Richard answered to Census Takers question as to where are you from? And his answer was I am from South Carolina, which was true. He had spent much of his formative years in South Carolina. It is also possible that he was not home when the Census Taker came around and his new wife, Elizabeth, guessed he was born in South Carolina. It makes sense that he would have been born in Georgia where his older and younger siblings were born.

Jimmy Wayne McClung in his book "The McClung Family of Wise County, Texas" 1981, states that the South Carolina settlers came mainly by two routes. All moved through Georgia in the early 1820's, and most followed a post road northwest to the Tennessee River, where they packed their belongings onto flat bottom boats and floated to the big bend of the Tennessee that marked the gateway to Blount County. The emigrants had to travel south across Cherokee lands to reach Blount County and one of the main routes became known as Bear Meat Cabin Road. Others stayed with their wagons in Georgia and headed due west on the federal Georgia road from the middle of Georgia to Will Creeks. The Georgia Road moved the settlers into Alabama at St. Clair County, Alabama. Jimmy Wayne McClung thinks that Richard would have taken the river route. By 1820 there were about 5,000 residents of the Bear Meat Cabin Frontier.c In the 1850 Census of Blount County, Alabama, Richard McClung, 58 SC, and his second or third wife, Elizabeth 28 Ala, and children Permelia, 14 Ala, Eliza, 7 Ala., and Nancyann, 4 Ala. They were living next to Richard Tidwell, 55 South Carolina, his wife Nancy, 57 Virginia, Booker, 24 Ala, Henry, 22 Ala, Nancy, 20 Ala, and John Davis, 18 Ala. His neighbor, Richard Tidwell, was a second or third cousin of his former wife Peggy.

In the 1855 State Census of Alabama for Blount County, Richard McClung is listed as over 21, a female over 21 and 2 females under 21. He is living next to a B. C. Morris who is over 21, a female over 21, 4 males under 21 and 1 female under 21. I believe this Morris family is related to Anastatia Morris who married Robert Mercer Barry. Richard's son Benjamin Franklin is living next to Robert Mercer Barry in 1855.

Richard is still alive in 1859 because he buys land from a Tidwell. Grantor: Clayton Tidwell, Grantee: Richard McClung deed Feb 15, 1859, deed book K page 119.

It is not known when or where Richard McClung died. It was probably 1860 or 1861, about the time that two of his children Benjamin Franklin McClung and Aramissa McClung Branum moved to Arkansas.

Potentially the first marriage of Richard McClung occurred prior to 1822 in Cherokee County, Alabama, acccording to the records of Penny Bashe. He married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Brown. It is not known when they were married or when Lizzie died, but her death was before 1825. They had at least one son, James Andrew McClung.

Richard McClung married Peggy Tidwell, 12 Jan 1825 in Blount County, Alabama. She was the daughter of John B.Tidwell and Jane. Richard was 34 and Peggy was about 20. She was married by the Justice of the Peace. The surety was provided by or the marriage was performed by Josiah Tidwell, her uncle. Josiah was a brother to John B. Tidwell, Peggy's father. Richard Tidwell, living next to Richard McClung and his wife Elizabeth in 1850, was a son of Robert Tidwell. I believe Robert was a second cousin of Peggy's. Peggy Tidwell McClung died probably between 1842 and 1846. Richard and Peggy had at least three to five children, but probably many more.

Richard married Elizabeth sometime before 1850. It is not known if the younger children in the 1850 Census are Peggy's children or Elizabeth's. I have them listed as belonging to Peggy.

James Robert McClung, the great grandson of Richard McClung wrote in a letter dated January 17, 1955 that his grandfather, Benjamin Franklin McClung, spoke of Richard as a tall (or large) "Raw-boned" man who lived in Alabama.

James Robert McClung, mentioned above, wrote in a letter dated January 17, 1955, that after Benjamin's mother (Peggy Tidwell McClung) died and the re-marriage of his father, that Ben left home.

Peggy Tidwell

Her father was John B. Tidwell and her uncle was Josiah Tidwell. They were the sons of Edmund Tidwell Sr. and grandsons of Richard Tidwell III. John B. and Josiah were first cousins with Robert Tidwell Jr. who was the son of Robert Tidwell, Sr. and the grandson of Richard Tidwell III. In 1850 Josiah Tidwell was living next to Blake Tidwell and his family. Blake was the son of Robert Tidwell Jr. who had died in 1845. Robert Jr.'s son Richard was living next to Richard McClung in 1850. Richard McClung's daughter Aramissa was living with Blake Tidwell.

Peggy Tidwells name may have been Margaret, but all I have seen her listed as is Peggy. The children of John B. Tidwell have her as Peggy, as does the Marriage record. And family legend has her as Peggy.

GA0711

A son of James Andrew and Susan Sims Luster McClung, was born Oct. 9, 1860 in Kansas, filed a application in the court of Claims Sept. 2, 1907. Claim number 43441. Dan listee James McClung and Susan Luster as his parents and Richard McClung and Lizzie Brown McClung as his grandparents. He answers the question of "Where did your parents reside in 1851?" as "Missouri". His answers to the question of "Where did your grandparents reside in 1851?" as "Alabama, last I heard".

Andrew Jackson "Dan" McClung b. 10/9/1860 in Kansas d. May 1930, married about 1885 to Pauline Gillette. She was born 12 May 1865 in Vancouver, WA d. 26 Feb 1938 in Meteor, WA

"Dan" made a claim for a share of money appropriated for the Eastern Cherokee Indians. Andrew "Dan's" claimed was rejected because a claim by his sister, Susan Smith of Wellsville, Franklin County, Kansas had already been made (claim #43299). In the claim, Dan writes that "Lizzie Brown was full blood Cherokee".

The later McClungs (in this lineage) have Indian blood through Andrew "Dan's" wife Pauline Gillette. She was a full blood Lakes Indian which were later part of the Confederated Tribes of Colville. There is also Indian lineage through Dan's son Walter's wife, Ruth Ella Fry. See: Application.

The second child of Richard and Peggy Elizabeth Tidwell McClung was born 8 Sep 1829 in Blount Co., AL. He married Elizabeth Berry in Blount Co., AL. She was born 11 Mar 1827 to Robert Merser and ___ Lingo Barry. Benjamin Franklin and Elizabeth were probably married ca 1849-50 as they had not yet had children when they were enumerated in the 1850 census of Blount Co., AL.

They moved to Arkansas just before the civil war, about 1858, where they settled in Wiley's Cove in Searcy County. They were enumerated there in the 1870 census. Edward, Rohena, Margaret and Paralee were born in Arkansas. They moved from there to Wise County Texas where some of the children were married. In 1897 they moved to Cheyenne Nation.

This family is found in the 1900 census in Washita County, Elk twp, Oklahoma (P. 95, #345). Benjamin F. gives his birthdate as Feb. 1829 and states that he had been married for 48 years. Elizabeth and "Phunette A." are living with him. Elizabeth's birth is given as March 1827.

Benjamin died in Oklahoma 31 Jan 1904 "among descendants of the native Americans with which he shared his birthright."


From Barbara L. Van Norsdall:
Benjamin Franklin McClung

Benjamin Franklin McClung was born the 8 Sep 1829 in Blount County, Alabama. He was the oldest known child of Richard McClung and Peggy Tidwell. But likely he had one or two older siblings. His parents were born in January of 1825 and Benjamin was born in September of 1829.

James Robert McClung, Benjamin's grandson, wrote in a letter dated January 17, 1955, that after Benjamin's mother died and the re-marriage of his father, that Ben left home and was employed on a farm by a local Methodist preacher by the name of Morris, who with his wife were greatly concerned about the salvation of the young man McClung. A few years later Benjamin married Elizabeth Tapp Barry whose mother was a Morris. The relationship of the farmer who Ben worked for and Elizabeth's mother is not known.

In later years Benjamin became a Methodist Minister. He established the first Methodist Church in Sentinel, Oklahoma.

Benjamin McClung acquired 79.23 acres W NW of Section 7, Township 12 South, Range 2 East, the Huntsville base line out of the Huntsville, Alabama land office, Document Number 20862, 1858/03/01, Cash Entry Sale. He also acquired 79.23 acres that are identified as E NW, the rest of the description is the same, Document number 17147, same date.

There were several people by the name of McClung living in Blount County, Alabama in 1850. It is not known what type of relationship these people had with Richard or his son Benjamin. They may have been children of Richard and therefore siblings of Benjamin or they may been cousins of Benjamin.

In the 1855 State Census of Alabama for Blount County, Benjamin is listed as one male over 21, one female over 21, one male under 21 and one female under 21. He is listed next to his father in law, Robert Mercer Barry (listed as Bury on the census), his wife and one male under 21.

Their daughter Funnetta was born December 19, 1859 in Blount County, Alabama. Their son Edward H. was born September 30, 1862 in Searcy County, Arkanasas. So they moved from Alabama to Arkansas sometime between 1860 and 1862. At some point some of the family moved to Dardanelle, Arkansas. The McClungs were accompanied to Wiley's Cove from Alabama by members of the Barry family.

Benjamin lived next to Aramissa McClung, his sister, and her husband Lewis Branum in Searcy County, Arkansas in 1870.

Family stories concerning Benjamin while he lived in Searcy County, Arkansas during the Civil War, tell of Benjamin hiding out in caves whenever the Northern army came around trying to conscript him. The Yankees tried to get all the southerners they could.

Benjamin's and Elizabeth' son James Washington moved to Decatur, Wise CO, Texas in about 1885. Benjamin and family followed a year later. Then in February of 1897 they moved to the Cheyenne Nation or Territory, what is now Oklahoma.

Elizabeth Tapp Barry

Elizabeth was born 11 Mar 1827 in Blount CO, AL. She was not listed with her family in 1850 because she had just recently married Benjamin Franklin McClung. However in a letter from James Robert McClung, Elizabeth's grandson, to his cousin Charles McClung, dated January 17, 1955, he states that she was the daughter of Robert Merser Barry, that her brother was John Barry and her sister was Lucendy Huffman. This matches Robert Mercer Barry and Anastatia Morris' family in the 1850 Federal Cenus. Jimmy Wayne McClung said in his book that some of his family thought that Elizabeth Barry's mother's name may have been Lingo. But the only way her mother could be named Lingo is if she had two names, a white name and a Cherokee name, with Lingo being her Cherokee name. Her brother John M. Barry had a granddaughter named Mollie Lingo Clegg. There has been a family story that Elizabeth was part Cherokee Indian. This has not been confirmed.

Jimmy Wayne writes regarding Alma Noble Armstrong, the daughter of Paralee McClung, sharing her memories regarding Elzabeth Barry McClung. "Grandma was so dainty, so sweet, so patient and so good. I just loved her so much." She said Elizabeth was unable to stand on her feet much in her last ten years. That made her life miserable.
