JOHN McCLUNG, Jr OF GEORGIA

5-4 JOHN LEWIS McCLUNG
GA0901

The fourth known child of John and Elizabeth McClung was born ca 1793 in Georgia. The 1820 Hall County, GA census shows John McClung. He is the age to be the John who married Rebecca Nix. She is listed in that age bracket also. There are three men in the birth years 1794-1804. These could be William W., Hiram and ?. Another bracket of one male 1804-10 could possibly be Sewel H. There is a sister b. 1804-10 (Elizabeth?) Drucilla married in 1819. Also there is the mother b. before 1775.

It appears that John married Rebecca Nix about 1819 as they had not yet had any children of their own by the 1820 census. They were probably living on the homeplace that had been part of Jackson County earlier. We need proof of our connection to the NIX family. The oldest Nix man in the 1840 census is John Nix living in Henry County. He and his wife were born in the 1780s. He may be a brother to Rebecca. Rebecca's mother was born in 1751. We note that Hiram was born in Henry County in 1830.

By 1830 John is enumerated in Talbot County with two males born 1820-25.

He was a farmer. We find him living in Talbot County, GA in 1850 next door to Reuben McClung (son) (b. 1846 in GA). John's wife appears to be Rebecca Nix as his mother-in-law was living with them and she was Rebecca Nix, b. 1751 in SC. John and Rebecca had nine children living with them at the time. There may have been another child or two born after 1850.

By 1860 John had died and Rebecca has four children at home with her in Talbot Co. (p. 134): Hiram, b. 1834; George b. 1839; Alzadia b. 1842 and John (III) b. 1844.

1-5 JONATHAN McCLUNG
GA0902

The first known child of John and Rebecca Nix McClung was born 1822 in Gwinnett County, Georgia He had not married by age 25 when he is listed in his father's household in Talbot County. There is a Jonathan in 1860 Marion County and he also appears in the 1850 census of Marion and this Jonathan is still with his parents then. We have not located Jonathan in the 1880 census though he would have been only 55 years old. Also note that Thomas (son of John Jr.) also named a son Thomas Jefferson McClung.

Curtis E. McClung writes: My Grandfather, Jonathan McClung, was the son of John McClung, Jr. and Rebecca Nix. Jonathan was born in Gwinnett County in 1822 and his brother, Frank M. was born in 1823. Apparently John Jr. and his family moved to Talbot/Marion County between 1823 and 1840. In 1832 part of northwestern Marion County was ceded to Talbot County and again in 1850 an additional part of Marion County was made part of Talbot County. These county boundary changes occurred in the general area where John Jr. lived and where Jonathan reared his family. This may answer the question about Jonathan being listed in both Marion and Talbot County.

In May 1864 at the age of 42 Jonathan enlisted in Co.B, 31st Ga Regt. (Ga. Volunteers or Ga. Militia) where he served 11 months before the war ended in April 1865.

Jonathan McClung married Lusina Askew 24 July 1842 in Muscogee County, GA (See Early Georgia Marriages). It was custom for the marriage to take place at the home of the bride so that is probably why it was registered in Muscogee County.

From Olin McClung we have this contribution:
The following is quoted from the Urquhart, Coffey, Boland and Allied Families of the South, by Annie Velma Urquhart Klayder, published by the author, 1991, Columbus, Ga. (I do not have the entire book.)

"Jonathan McClung, who was married to Lucina Askew, is the son of John Lewis McClung and Rebecca Nix. Jonathan served in Co. B, 3rd Inf., CSA during the Civil War, and is buried in the old Bethel Cemetery, Marion County, GA. His grave is marked by a Civil War marker. The McClung family came to Talbot County from Gwinnett Co., Ga."

Jonathan and Lusina are listed in the 1870 census of Marion County in Fort Perry Twp, P.O. Tazewell (P. 187, #1401) with children: Nancy E. 19F, Thomas 17 M; Josephine 15 F; Louisa M. 14 F.

Curtis E. McClung tells us that Lucinda Askew died in 1885 and Jonathan married Elizabeth (Lizzie) Benson. From this marriage two children were born, Morgan McClung, born 1888 and William Curt McClung (My Father) born 1890. Jonathan McClung died February 1, 1904 and is buried in the Old Bethel Cemetery, Marion County, Ga.

Jonathan of Marion County remained there and was buried there. His children appear to be:
Mary b. 1843 F
James b. 1845 M
Martha b. 1847 F
Nancy E. b. 1853 F GA
Thomas Jefferson b. 1852 M GA
Josephine b. 1855(?) F GA
Louisa Matilda b. 1858 F GA

Morgan b. 1888
William Curt b. 1890

They are in the Bloomingdale, Chambers Co., Alabama census in 1880. They had seven children at that time and all born in GA. This would indicate they had moved about 1874. Their first son's name is John.

GA0929

The fourth child of John and Rebecca Nix McClung was born ca 1833 in Georgia (probably Talbot Co.). There is a Hiram (b.1840) in Talbot Co., GA in 1880 who has a sister, Alzadia b. 1845 living with them.

Hiram married Sarah who was born 1855 in Georgia. She is 15 years his junior so may be the second wife. They are recorded in the 1880 census of Talbot County, Ga, p. 253C. Also living with them was his sister, Alzadia. On the same page was John W. b. 1856 (which we presume to be his son from a prior marriage or his brother?) and the George W. family who was probably his brother.

We need his enumeration in the 1870 census but so far have not found it. This would give us the children of Hiram if he had any.

5-5 THOMAS McCLUNG
GA0930

The fifth child of John Lewis and Rebecca Nix McClung was born ca 1837 in Talbot Co., GA. He married Samantha Daniel 21 June 1858 in Talbot Co., GA (LDS 249366). By 1880 they were in Harris County, Georgia. This is a county adjoining Talbot to the west. Samantha was b. 1840 in Georgia. Her father was born in GA and mother in MS. They are listed with 10 children. We need records from Harris County and Talbot County, GA.

7-5 ROYAL (or RILEY) M. McCLUNG
GA0942

The seventh child of John Lewis and Rebecca Nix McClung was a son born 1841 in Talbot Co., GA. His name was hard to read on the 1850 census and looked like "Real" but we believe this was the person. Royal McClung is listed as an overseer in the 1860 census of Taylor County., GA. He was living with the Leonard L. Breedlove family. Leonard was a teacher so he was probably working at a different place.

Rile M. McClung married Susan A. Hogg 7 Jan 1866 in Talbot Co., GA. This may be the "Royal" McClung who was listed as a private 11 June 1861 in Co. E, 9th Reg. He was on detail duty as a waggoner 31 Oct 1861. (Info from Walter Boswell).

We find Royal McClung in the 1870 census of Talbot County, GA age 33 with wife Susan age 24. They had three children at that time.

The eighth child of John Lewis and Rebecca Nix McClung was born ca 1844 in Talbot Co., GA. He married Sarah J. ___ ca 1874 in Talbot Co., GA. (As far as we know, these records are extant and need to be searched). He was on a Muster Roll for Co. I, 46th Reg. Discharged for disability.

There is also a discharge record for 10 Oct 1862 from Charleston, SC. Enlisted 4 Mar 1862 as private in Co. B, 32nd Regt, GA Inf. 1 Mar 1863. On detached duty, Provost Guard at Charleston, SC 31 Dec 1864. Pension records show he surrendered near Greensboro, NC 26 Apr 1865. One of these records may belong in the George/Myrada Whatley McClung file. (info from Walter Boswell).

The 1880 census finds George W. McClung in Talbot County, GA with wife, Sarah J. and two children. His occupation was given as farmer.

The ninth child of John Lewis and Rebecca Nix McClung was born ca 1842-5 in GA. She was with her mother in 1860 Talbot County. She was living with her brother, Hiram, in the 1880 census of Talbot Co., GA. She apparently never married.

10-5 JOHN W. McCLUNG
GA0950

The tenth child of John Lewis and Rebecca Nix McClung was born ca 1844-6 in Talbot Co., GA. We have not been able to locate him in the 1880 census. There is a John W. in Talbot County in 1880 near Hiram but he gives his birth as 1856 (transcription error?). He married Elizabeth ___ about 1879. She was born ca 1862 in Georgia. They had no children at that time.


*************
11-4 ELIZABETH McCLUNG
GA0951

There was also a daughter named after her mother: Elizabeth who was listed as one of the orphans of John. She was probably born ca 1806. She may be the Elizabeth McClung who married Wright Roden in Blount County AL 25 Apr 1824. (See Richard's File)

Vincent S. Roden was the son of Wright Roden and Elizabeth McClung, daughter of soldier John McClung. He (VS) married Louhena Caroline McClung, daughter of Robert McClung and Mary Roden. His second wife as listed in the 1870 census of Marion Co., AL, was an Elizabeth (unknown maiden name). They had two children enumerated: William, age 7 and a daughter named Beady? age two.

Wright Roden remarried a Nancy __?__. In the 1850 census of Walker County, AL, we find this family:

NAME Age Gender Birthplace
RODEN, Wright 55 m TN
" Nancy 55 f TN
" Ephenous 13 m AL
" Sarah J. 11 f AL
" Julius 9 m AL
" Margaret 7 f AL
" Mary A. 5 f AL
" Deborah R. 3 f AL

**************
7-4 DRUCILLA McCLUNG
GA0952

The child of John and Elizabeth McClung was born in 1798 in GA. She married Isaac York 1 Nov 1819 in Hall Co., GA. (Hall Co. formed from Jackson Co. in 1818.) This family appears in the 1830 and 1840 censuses of Gwinnett Co. and in the 1850 and 60 censuses of Cobb Co., GA. Kelly Searles, researcher, notes that Drucilla won land in a lottery with siblings Suel H. and Hiram, orphans: Lot 111, Sec. 10 Habersham Co., GA. In the 1860 census, she is listed in the household of her son, Augustus W. York as a widow. She died 20 Jan 1882 in Marietta, GA. Their children were: Melisa, Cyrus, Gather C., James W., Elizabeth J., Oliver N., Augustus W., Parthena, Perry F. York. (FTM)

There is an interesting bit of civil war history with the son, Cyrus. His home was between the lines at the Battle of Kennesaw. Not only was the house used by both sides, it lay at the site of some of the fiercest fighting in the entire battle. (Kelly Searles, researcher).

Hiram, Sewell, Elizabeth and Drucilla are listed as siblings in a land lottery:

Sewell b. 1804 in GA.

Hiram b, 1805 in GA

Note: We hope family members will confirm these relationships and/or help us find proof of anything otherwise.
