Information on John Clingenpeel
From Genforum.com post:
SECOND GENERATION: John Clingenpeel, born ca. 1781 in Burks Co., Pennsylvania, was a son of Joseph and Sophia Clingenpeel of Franklin County, Virginia. He married Sarah Kilkenny, orphan daughter of John Kilkenny, on March 13, 1804 in Augusta County, Virginia. The Marriage Bond is dated March 12, 1804.
John and his family are listed in the 1810 Botetourt County and in the 1820 Rockbridge County, Virginia census records. These indicate John and Sarah had at least seven children, though I have documentation of only two: KILKENNY and WILLIAM [Bonnie, I would be interested in knowning where you found a record of the two others you name: E. H. and John]
Kilkenny's children were living in Preble Co., Ohio in August 1859.
John died before October 22, 1834. This is based upon the fact that his father, Joseph, wrote his will at that time and referred to John as being deceased.
THIRD GENERATION: KILKENNY CLINGENPEEL, son of John and Sarah Kilkenny Clingenpeel, was born ca. 1804. He married (1) Sarah "Sally" Fulwider, daughter of George Fulwider, on July 27, 1826 in Augusta County,Virginia. Kilkenny and his family had moved to Ohio by 1830; at that time they appear on the Preble County, Ohio census records.
The exact date of Sarah's death is uncertain. On August 15, 1859 her five children, who were residents of Preble County, were named as heirs at law of Sarah: "Witnesseth that whereas the said Sarah Clingenpell as a daughter and heir at Law of George Fulwider late of Augusta County, Virginia, deceased, was entitled to an interest in the land left by the said Father ..." [Augusta Co., Va. Deed Book 79, pp. 90-91]
