    Subject: Elizabeth McClintock, wife of William McCune
    Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2002 13:29:19 -0600

    Fellow researchers,

    I am trying to find out information about Elizabeth McClintock, wife of
    William McCune. Following is the basic data that I have on both of them:

    Name: William McCUNE
    Birth: 1750 Cumberland County, Pennsylvania
    Death: 6 Dec 1830 Pike County, Missouri Age: 80
    Military: Revolutionary War
    Father: John McCUNE (ca1705-1766)
    Mother: Agnes (~1710->1766)

    1: Elizabeth McCLINTOCK (?)
    Birth: ca 1738 Cumberland County, Pennsylvania [1]
    Death: ca 1795 Bourbon County, Kentucky Age: 57
    Marriage: bef 1770
    Children: Nancy (1770-1842)
    John (1772-1852)
    Susanna (1774-ca1814)
    Margaret "Peggy" (1775-1857)
    Elizabeth ³Betsy² (1776-)
    Hugh (1778-)

    [1] Holliday Memo: ³Elizabeth was 12 yrs older than her husband.² From
    ³William McCune: The Pennsylvanian and Kindred Families² Compiled by
    Kathryn Hutcherson Campbell, April, 1974, p. 15.

    I am at a loss concerning Elizabeth's parents. She may or may not be a
    McClintock. From the Holliday memo note, Elizabeth was born about 1738 and
    was 12 years older than William McCune. It may be that she had been
    previously married to a McClintock (thus not showing up on various
    McClintock genealogies).

    Question: does anyone have any information on someone named Elizabeth first
    marrying a McClintock and second marrying a McCune?
