Notes

New information verified by the DAR, Charles McClung born 20 Oct 1775, died 3 April 1847 in Edmonson Co., KY is the son of Thomas McClung and Nancy Agnes Black, not William McClung and Abigail Carpenter. The DAR has verified that Thomas McClung did not die at the Battle of Point Pleasant. Thomas McClung died bef. 17 August 1784 in Greenbrier Co., VA, when his brother William "Grandfather Billy" McClung and wife Nancy were named his Executors. William McClung's son Charles was born in 1782. William's son Charles died in Greenbrier County VA (WV) in 1805. See tombstone pictures on Ancestry.com, Nana's Tree for Charles McClung and Charity Vandal. Evidence is provided by author Larry Shuck in books on Greenbrier Co, VA (WV). Also, it should be noted that Charles' eldest son, Thomas McClung (born 1807) was llkely named after his father, and a daughter Agnes Black McClung (born 1819) was no doubt named after the mother of this Charles McClung, Nancy "Agnes" [nee Black] McClung.

As a young man, Charles was an explorer in the newly formed state of Kentucky, traveling on the Wilderness Trail soon after it was completed by Daniel Boone. Charles returned to Greenbrier County and married Charity Vandel on September 19, 1805. The couple moved onto his isolated homestead in western Kentucky. They had encounters with raiding bands of Indians, and endured floods and fires. After living the life of a true pioneer, Charles died in Edmonson County, KY on April 3, 1847.
