    Letitia, the only daughter of Alexander and Jane Breckenridge and probably their youngest child, was still under age November 19, 1747, on which date the records of Augusta County show that she chose her brother Robert as her guardian. The records of the same court show that she married Elijah McClanahan in September, 1749. It is not known if there was any issue of this marriage. Elijah McClanahan left numerous descendants, but he married twice. His last will, dated February 22, 1793, and proved in Augusta County Court at its June term, 1796, names a wife, Margaret, a son, Elijah, and two daughters.
