Information on James McClung

From The McClung Family Association Web Page: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~rootsr/PA-Jms-Jr.htm


1-2 James McClung, Jr. of Pennsylvania McClung Genealogy, 1904 and Updates James McClung was probably born in Ireland. He probably came with his family from Ireland to Philadelphia, PA about 1740. (We have yet to locate ship passenger list). He moved to Rockbridge Co., VA with his brother, William and Hugh, about 1742. He is thought to have married Mary McKy. We have this note from a newspaper clipping:


"John McKy had but few relatives. The McClungs were his nephews. Some say he gave them a tract of land; others, that they gave him a little gray mare in turn. It is said when James McClung married a girl who had gone out to service, they called her a serving girl) that old Grandfather said: 'O never mind, wives are hard to get;' which shows some were somewhat clannish. John McKy died in 1773. Henry McClung and William McClung were two of the appraisers of his estate."


He is believed to be the James McClung, Sr. who in 1753, signed a call to the Rev. John Brown to become pastor of Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church in Augusta (now Rockbridge) County, VA. (See Foote's Sketches of Virginia, pp 96-8). James is also supposed to be the James McClung whose will is recorded at Lexington, VA, in Will Book 1.


On Sep 5, 1786, William McClung was made co-executor. William McClung, Joseph Reid and Thomas Buford were the administrators.
