Confusion regarding Records of Gasper Clements

Some sources (including those cited below) claim that this Gasper Clements died in 1815 based upon a will found in Augusta County, VA records. This would have made Gasper Clements about 90 years old on the date of his death, which during those days would have been perhaps questionable. Based upon other sources, including the research of John Blankenbaker (author of "Beyond Germanna") and the publication "There Was A Gaspar In The Family" Vol 2, by Helen Spurlin and Mickey Martin, the Gasper Clements that died in 1815 was a nephew of this Gasper Clements, and son of this Gasper's brother, Christian Clements. More research is necessary to prove when and where this Gasper Clements died.
