Notes for William McCLELLAND: From Mrs. William Bushman, genealogist, of Staunton, Virginia:
William McClelland died after April 27, 1824 and before July 26, 1824. His will was witnessed on the former date and probated on the latter date in the Augusta County, Virginia Courthouse.
William owned no land in Augusta County. The 1790 Census of Virginia (reconstructed) shows a William McClelland in Princess Anne County, Virginia.
Fothergill and Naugle, Virginia Taxpayers, 1782-1787 (25000 omitted from reconstructed 1790 Census) shows only one William McClelland as resident of Loudoun County, Virginia.
William McClelland's name does not appear in the two earliest tax lists of Rockbridge County, 1778 and 1782.
The following information was found on the GenForum (internet) in a message posted by Caarol McClellan-Ohlweiler:
She states that William and Sarah were married in Adams County, Pennsylvania in the Rock Creek Presbyterian Church in Cumberlaand Township. She also says that she believes that William had a brother named John and another brother whose name is unknown.
