Son of James and Mary McKy McClung
From McClung Genealogy (1904) and Updates from McClung Association Membership


2-2 WILLIAM McCLUNG
PAXXX

The second son of John and Mary McKy McClung was probably born in County Antrim, Ireland about 1702. He emigrated with the family from Ireland to America about 1740. He landed at Philadelphia and settled for a while in Lancaster Co., PA. About 1742 he moved with his brothers James and Hugh to Augusta (now Rockbridge) County, VA. They settled in the "Borden Grant," near Timber ridge. The deed to his land is on record at Staunton, VA., and was made by Benj. Borden, Jr., for 314 acres, three rods and 25 poles. The price paid was 9 pounds, seven shillings. The deed is dated 19 Mar 1746. It states, however that the land was sold to William McClung by Benj. Borden, Sr. As Benj. Borden, Sr., died in 1742, this fixes the date of William' McClung's emigration to Virginia as not later than 1742, unless the purchase was made before leaving Pennsylvania.

William signed a call for pastoral services of Rev. John Brown at Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church in 1753, and subscribed to his salary in 1754-5. "Widow" McClung is evidently a misreading of "William". See Foote's Sketches of Virginia. He was on the first bench of elders in Timber Ridge Church, along with Archibald Alexander and others, during Rev. John Brown's pastorate.

William Henry Ruffner, in Historical Papers of Washington and Lee University, says of him: "The family of William McClung was an important one, and touched the college at many points. Mr. McClung was married twice, and his family was large and became well connected. His daughter Susan, married a son of Robert Alexander, who is now listed as the first rector of Washington and Lee University. Another daughter married Col. Samuel McDowell. He was the brother of Col. James McDowell who was the father of gov. James McDowell, both of whom were trustees."

William McClung was married twice. The names of his wives are unknown. It is believed that he married both wives in Ireland. The order of the ages of their children is unknown. It is also unknown which are children of the first wife, and which of the second. It is said that Elizabeth and Mary were sisters; that Sarah was a half-sister of John and that John was a half brother of James. There were nine children all together.

William made his WILL 20 Sep 1783 in Rockbridge Co., VA.

1-3 JAMES McCLUNG


PAXXX

The first (possibly) child of William McClung (2-2) was born probably in County Antrim, near Coleraine, Ireland. (Date estimated at 1722). This family emigrated from Ireland in 1740. He landed at Philadelphia and lived about two years in Lancaster Co., PA. James moved to the "Borden Grant" in Augusta (now Rockbridge) county, VA and settled on a farm on the east bank of South River, three miles east of Fairfield. He erected his home in a narrow glen between the river and the mountain and about midway between the Little Mary and Big Mary Creeks. The original house was burned but his neighbors assembled and built another for him and had it ready for occupancy within a week. This building is still standing, after the lapse of more than a century. This residence will be referred to hereafter as "Mary Glenn."

Two reasons have been assigned for his having selected this location instead of the level and more open portions out in the valley. First, because of its proximity to the mountain, where the grazing was fine and where game was abundant. Second, the chance of greater immunity from the incursion of Indians.

The following well authenticated story is told of James McClung: Soon after his immigration to Virginia, while in the timber making rails with which to fence his farm, he was attacked by five savage Indians, who proposed to relieve him of his scalp. He asked permission to finish splitting his log before being scalped. His request was granted. Under the circumstances he found the log very difficult to split. He asked the Indians to assist him. Thinking they should have his scalp all the sooner, they consented. He placed them on opposite sides of the log, with their fingers in the split, giving them orders to pull with all their might while he should drive in the wedge. Then with a desperate stroke he knocked out the wedge, causing the log to close upon their fingers, thus holding them fast while he amidst their shrieks and curses, dispatched them with his axe.

Since this tragic incident has been attributed to Daniel Boone and others, the sources of this information will here be given. The first is Mr. John H. Denison, the owner of the farm where the episode occurred. He asserts that he was raised an orphan boy in the home of James McClung's grandson, James Gardner McClung, and that the said James Gardner often talked of the event and attributed it to his own grandfather. The second is Miss Susan Hite, still living at the age of nearly 78 years. She asserts that she was born and reared in the immediate neighborhood of the McClungs; that she has often heard the incident related, and that she never heard it attributed to any other than James McClung. She likewise had often seen the Indian graves on the original McClung farm.

The third is Mrs. Hettie McClung Hanna, who was born and reared within two miles of where the scene occurred. She asserts she has always understood it was a McClung who did the killing, but can not say which one of them it was. The fourth is Phebe McClung, a grand- daughter of James McClung. She lived about eighty-five years; and a short while before her death, told the writer personally that it was her own grandfather who killed the Indians. They were buried near the place where they were killed; namely, on the second level above the "Cold Spring," which flows into Little Mary's Creek, three miles east of Fairfield, VA.

James McClung was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and for his services received grants of land in Kanawha County, VA (now WV) and in Kentucky.

James married Ann Gray and they had fourteen children. His will is on record in Lexington, VA.

6-4 WILLIAM McCLUNG
PAXXX

The sixth child of James and Ann Gray McClung was born probably at "Mary Glen," three miles east of Fairfield, Rockbridge, VA about 1761-2. He probably received his education at Liberty Hall Academy, now Washington and Lee University. He was a teamster in Washington's army during the Revolutionary War. The following incident is told of his army experiences: "On a certain occasion he was driving an army wagon containing some empty barrels. The road being very rough, the barrels made a rumbling noise. The British army, encamped not far away, heard the noise and supposing it to be the drums of the American troops, called for a line of battle and made ready for a fight."

He moved from Rockbridge County, VA to Wilkes Co. Georgia in 1787. He was a farmer. The following church certificate was given him by the session of the Presbyterian Church at Timber Ridge, Rockbridge Co., VA:

"That the bearer, William McClung, was a single young man when he left this society the 15th of May, 1787, and from his childhood behaved without blame or reproach, was admitted to full communion with the church and left us free from any imputation that would expose him to public shame or the censures of the church, is certified at Timber Ridge Sept. 2nd, 1788.

By: John Lyle, William Walker, John McClung, Elders."

William married 12 Nov 1789 Euphemia Cunningham in Greene County Georgia. She was born 9 Feb 1769 to Patrick Cunningham, a wealthy cotton planter. The following pen-picture of Euphemia is given by her grand-daughter: "Height about 5 ft 2 inches; weight about 130 lbs; hair dark auburn; eyes light brown; nose slightly prominent; complexion fair, fresh and healthful; not prematurely aged in appearance. She was an exceedingly neat and cleanly housekeeper."

Apparently William worked for Patrick Cunningham at first. There are records showing him dealing in slaves for his father-in-law. William McClung owned a farm of 391 acres in Wilkes County, Georgia on Upton's Creek. See: Deed Index in Wilkes County. He also owned a farm of 213 acres in Greene County, GA. on Richland Creek. The Deed Index may show this purchase in 1797. William probably made the friendship of other McClungs in the area. At the same time we have John, the Revolutionary Soldier from NC, SC and GA and also George who married Jane Myrada Whatley living in Wilkes, Warren and Greene Counties in Georgia. They all removed from that area about the same time.

William moved his family to Blount County, Tennessee about 1806. The following church certficate was given William McClung upon his departure from Wilkes County, GA:

"Smyrna, GA: 13 Jan 1806: That the bearer, William McClung, an elder, and Euphemia, his wife, have lived in this congregation a number of years past and behaved in a sober, Christian manner--are in the communion of the church and leave us with unimpeachable character, is certified by the pastor: Fras. Cummins."

The first year they lived on the Houston farm, on Nine Mile Creek, eight miles southwest of Maryville, TN. The next year he entered a 300 acre farm on Baker's Creek, Blount (now Loudon) County, adjoining the present village of Greenback, TN. Here, about the year 1810, he built a large brick house, in which he dwelt the remainder of his life. He was an Elder in the Baker's Creek Presbyterian Church for probably thirty years.

The following pen picture of him was furnished by William Craig, who knew him intimately for twenty-five years: "William McClung was tall, slender, raw-boned, about six feet high; slightly stoopt in his old age. In his prime he stood erect. He had rather narrow shoulders; head medium size; hair gray and medium length, beard heavy; upper lip cleanshaven, according to the custom in his day; eye-brows rather heavy; nose medium size; cheek bones prominent; eyes dark gray, sharp and piercing; face lean. He was a man of good sense, lively, and full of fun; joking with the neighbors, and servants in his employ. He was a very religious man."

He seems to have been a man of fair education. The only civil office he ever held so far as known was that of Justice of the Peace. His Will is recorded in Blount County, TN. While carrying a basket of corn to feed his hogs, he stepped on a corncob, fell, and dislocated his hip, which accident hastened his death. He was buried in the family grave-yard about two furlongs south of the house. He died 14 Feb 1837 in his 70th year.

Euphemia remained on the farm until her death 28 Jan 1843. She was buried by his side. They had eight children, some who became prominent in their lives.

She was born 16 Nov 1782 in PA, and died 9 Nov 1862. They reared seven children at Troy, OH. By 1850 Nancy is living in Concord Twp, Miami Co., OH with three sons: John, William B., and Addison.

From the 1880 History of Miami County, Ohio:

(Son of David and Nancy):DAVID A. McCLUNG, retired farmer; P.O. Troy. David A. McClung is a thoroughbred son of Miami Co.,having been born upon the spot upon which he now resides, Aug. 15, 1826, and with the exception of three years, has never left the loved spot; he was the youngest son of David and Nancy [Henderson] McClung, who were married in Kentucky, April 12, 1808; their wedding tour was a horseback ride from Lexington to Troy; it was during the spring freshets, and the creeks and rivers were swollen with heavy rains; upon their arrival opposite the site of Troy, they found the river running high, and, as there was no bridge, they were obliged to swim their horses across at a point now called "Coe's Ford;" Indians were then very plentiful and not very friendly. During the month of July 1812, a Mr. Gerard. Mr. Dilbone and wife were murdered. Previous to this time there had been hostilities brewing, and nearly all the able-bodied men were on the frontier under arms; it so happaned that Mr. McClung was then away; his wife with three small children and a neighbor girl Nancy Telford, were left alone. Aaron Tullis brought word in the evening that the Indians were killing and scalping everybody, and that they must get to the block- house in Troy as soon, and in the best way they could, while he went to warn other settlers; they started at once, Mrs. McClung, with a three week old babe in her arms, leading another child 2 years old by the hand, with Nancy and Cloyd, seven years old, carrying the trusty rifle, they proceeded on their way; fearing to take the bridle path that led direct to Troy, they made a detour to the right through the woods, and after wandering about for some time without reaching their destination, sat down upon a log to await the moon's rising; as they were expected at the block-house, but came not, three men were sent out to hunt them; Mrs. McClung could hear them halloo, but fearing they were Indians, gave no answer; finally her name was called and when she replied, help came, and they arrived at the block house at almost day break. We can hardly conceive that the beautiful plain between Ridge avenue and Troy, ever could have been such a mass of tangled brush that persons would get lost in coming such a short distance; there were in the block house about eighty persons that had fled there for protection; the next day Mrs. McClung and her babies went toJudge Barbee's house and stayed a few days, or until the supposed danger was past; three children are now living of the McClung family; the father dying in 1841, and the mother in 1862; she was 80 years old, and her husband 65. By the death of his father, David, the subject of this sketch, became heir of a portion of the home farm, and by sucessive purchases has added to it until he is now the owner of more than 300 acres of land; through his enterprise, aided by that of his two brothers, the Troy Hydraulic was established; this enterprise will at no distant day be of vast importance to the business interests of the city; the brothers were also the moving spirits in the Miami Co. Agricultural Board, and the first meeting was held on their grounds; rain falling, the exhibition was continued in their barn. David A. McClung was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth T. Harker Jan. 4, 1853, Rev. David Rice officiating; they have four children living- Mary P. the eldest daughter, is now wife of Henry C. Davis, of Kokomo, Ind.: the other three, John C. and his two sisters, Emma and Louise, live with their parents; John C. has finished his studies, and the two daughters are advancing rapidly; Emma now having been two years in the high school; the whole family are great readers, and have access to a fine library; the children are rapidly becoming accomplished musicians, being good vocalists as well. Mr. McClung votes a straight Republican ticket, and has the satisfaction of living in a splendid house, surrounded by every comfort. (Researcher: Martha Wampler Teten

14-4 CAPT. JAMES McCLUNG
PAXXX

The fourteenth child of James and Ann Gray McClung was born ca 1777 in Rockbridge County, VA. He was a captain of militia. The following sketch of him was written by Judge James Trice Patton, and published in the Lexington, VA Gazette on 16 May 1873:

"It shall be my province now to treat of a man in a rather different sphere of life from those heretofore mentioned--of one whose name is not familiar to those bearing it in remembrance, either as a politician, legislator, justice of the peace, practical farmer, nor in any special capacity for which those hitherto treated have been noted; but mainly in the character of a devout Christian. Capt. James McClung was a man of especially remarkable in that respect. As an evidence of that fact you may mention his name to anyone who now retains a knowledge of him and the first idea that would arise in connection with that recollection would be that o of his Christian character; or let those testify who have been accustomed to hear his memory referred to, and I venture the prediction it would be that their knowledge of him was from hearing him spoken of as perculiarly a Christian man. The birthplace of Capt. McClung was on the east bank of South River a few miles in an east of south direction from the town of Fairfield, where an inviting plot of ground between the river and the mountain was selected by one of the first settlers of his name in the Valley. Land with a good strong soil, but steep in places, plenty of timber and delightful springs of cool, delicious water. There were until very recently other lands in that vicinity belonging to different branches of the same family and in whose hands they had been retained from the earliest settlement of the county.

The residence of Capt. McClung's father was at the mouth of the "Little Mary" where a log house after the primitive style of the buildings among the early settlers was erected, but scarcely a vestige now remains to mark the spot. It is a rather narrow strip of land between the river and the mountains side of the well-known Diggs Survey, famous for its mineral deposits. In the course of the family inheritance this tract of land passed from James McClung the first, to James McClung of whom I write, and about half of it is still owned by the present James McClung living thereon, hving been owned by one of that name since its first settlement. The residence of Capt. James McClung, the subject of this sketch, was on that portion of the tract higher up the river where he spent the years of his life after his marriage. He was the youngest of fourteen children, and like most of the descendants of the first settlers, was of Scottish-Irish stock of the true blue Presbyterian stamp, and from my earliest knowledge of him was a ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church. He was a constant attendant at the house of God, and so zealous was he in that observance that he has been known to walk from his home, a distance of twenty miles, to attend a meeting of Presbytery at Staunton. I once hearad a venerabale gentleman, who occupies one of those offices in the rear of the court house at Lexington, make a remark of Capt. James McClung somewhat to the following effect: I have never known the individual, who in my view, lived so near to god and have so much of the image of his blessed Master as did Capt. James McClung. He would walk along distance and attend for several days at a time upon the preaching of the Gospel when a revival of religion was going on. During the great revival of the Presbyterian Church which took place some thirty odd years ago, Capt. McClung devoted himself to that revival, and aided much in its progress. It was known as "Jones" revival throughout the churches in this section of the Valley by its being gotten up and conducted mainly, so far as human aid was concerned, by a Presbyterian minister by the name of Jones. He would attend the meetings; walk from church to church while they lasted, and his gift in prayer was so devout, so eloquent that his prayers had a powerful effect upon the audience. Indeed the Rev. Mr. Jones would seek his assistance in that way to get up a religious feeling at his appointments and to keep it up when once aroused. Upon one occasion on being called out to lead in prayer, he commenced the utterance of his devotions in a secluded part of the church, and warming up as he proceeded, his prayer became so devout, so touching, that Mr. Jones came down from the pulpit and led him forth before the audience. the old man never ceased of faltered in his pryaer, but grew more eloquent as he advanced, as though unconscious of any interruption, so much absorbed was he in his supplication before the throne of Grace.

His Christian cousel was much sought for by those touched with an awakening sense of their sinfulness; by those experiencing doubts of their worthiness; by ministers even and especially by young men preparing for the ministry. At one time the Rev. Wm. S. Plumer, meeting with him on the occasion of a religious service, sought an interview with him on the subject of his worthiness for the gospel ministry, and expressed his doubts of his acceptability. As I have heard the story, the two proceeded into the woods from the country church they were attending, and after consultation and prayerful consideration of the subject, the then young candidate felt much strengthened to persevere in his ministerial calling. I have heard it said to that conference it might be that the Presbyterian Church was indebted for the subsequent able service of that distinguished divine. Dr. Plummer always expressed the highest admiration for the Christian character of old Capt. James McClung.

He was truly a pillar to the Presbyterian Church and a shining light in the cause of Christianity during the long period of a well-spent life. No man could be so truly pious without, at the same time being a most useful and worthy citizen; but I have chosen to speak of him almost exclusively in his Christian character; and while I have exhausted the space I have hitherto allowed myself in such articles, have fallen short of exhausting the subject, for as much more could be written of the commendabale virtues of Capt. McClung as a Christian man and yet the half not be told. Many years will have to elapse before the pious example of this unpretending holy man will cease to be felt in the sphere of his useful labors; and though meek and lowly was his lot on this earth, his crown of glory can but be bright in the realms above; while the memory of his Christian virtues shall remain as enduring and lasting as the lofty peaks which tower around his once humble home at the foot of the South Mountain."

Capt. James McClung was a tall man with gray hair, gray eyes, heavy eyebrows, long, narrow and very white, smooth-shaven face, with beard under chin. He wore a blue homespun swallow-tail dress-coat.

He was a party to the following transaction: "Know all men by these presents that I James McClung of the County of Rockbridge and State of Virginia have bargained and sold and delivered and by these presents do bargain sell and Confirm and deliver unto William McClung of the County of Wilkes and State of Georgia a Negro Woman Slave Named Charrity of the age of twenty one years with her child named Polly to have and to hold the said Negro Woman Slave and Child to him the said Wm. McClung his heirs or assigns from henceforth as his or their property absolutely without any manner of Condition in Witness whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal this 19th Day of December 1798 Eight.

James McClung, (Seal)

Testators: John Graves and William Brown."

Capt. James McClung married Mary Campbell, daughter of Charles Campbell and sister of Dr. Samuel L. Campbell, of Lexington, VA, and of the historian Rev. John W. Campbell, of Petersburg, VA.
