Would you happen to be a descendant of James W. Clendenen?27615336
Thank you for the detailed info on the memorial. You (and DNA) may have just helped my family solve a 100 yr old brick wall!
Looking for descendants of James Clendenen! Thanks!

RE: Mary Breedlove Clendinen
Cathy, thanks for responding to my inquiry. I have not been able to find anything further on Mary Breedlove. The possible parents, Newman Breedlove and Prudence Schwenk, did live amoung the Clendinen's in the 1810 and 1820 Orange County, North Carolina censuses. A Mary Breedlove and James Clendinen married in Orange county on 1/4/1827. I couldn't find James in an 1830 census but in 1840 he was in the Lawrence County. Indiana census. The 1850 Lawrence County census has James and two children living in Shawswick Township, Lawrence Co. The census was taken on 9/26/1850. Since Mary died in 1850, I expect it was before the census was taken. I haven't found a map of Shawswick Township before 1850 but I expect it to include the Pinhook Cemetery. Guthrie township was formed in the later 1860's.

On 1/1/1853, James married Harriett Allen in Monroe County. On, 1/3/1855 he purchased the deed to 40 acres of Polk Twp., Monroe County per the General Land Records. By the 1960 census he is living in Polk Twp. By 1870 he lives on Chapel Hill two families from my gggrandfather, John T. Cracaft, and very near the Chapel Hill Cemetery where he is buried.

I hope that you can follow what I have written.

Growing up, I never gave much thought about my gggrandparents. Doing genealogy has broadened my scope. Unfortunately, those who might have some of the answers have already passed. Larry Cracraft

Mary Breedlove Clendinen
I appreciate finding the Find A Grave posting of Mary Breedlove Clendinen. According to the family trees posted on Mary was born abt. 1807 in North Carolina. Do you have documentation that confirms she was born in Tennessee? I agree that she died about 1850.
