Death? [family tradition says he was killed in a stable]


Some researchers claim that this Thomas McClung, Jr. died in 1795, supposedly killed in a stable, but court records in Rockbridge and Greenbrier County, Virginia clearly show that he was alive (listed as "infant") in 1799/1800, one of which is listed below:


  • [abt. 1 Jan. 1800] - The answer of John McClung son of Thomas McClung to the file of complaint exhibited against himself & others in the County Court of Rockbridge by William Moore.
The answer being for himself & also as Guardian for Rachel McClung & Thomas McClung Infts. [Infants] & orphans of sd. Thomas McClung & for Jinny McClung, Sally McClung, Polly McClung & Edward McClung Infts. [infants] & orphans of Edward McClung dec'd. [Note: this is another important record "Wm Moore vs. Heirs of James McClung", which proves that Rachel & Thomas McClung, "infants & orphans" of Thomas McClung were not yet adults in 1799/1800, proving yet again that Thomas McClung, Sr. DID NOT DIE at the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774 as he clearly had children AFTER that year].
