Mary Magdalena (went by Magdalena) Clodfelter was the tenth of eleven known children of John Clodfelter (1751-1826) and Catarine (Catherine) Sink Clodfelter (1755-1826 (or 1829?)), who married 08 Sep 1771 at Rowan (now Davidson) County, North Carolina.

Magdalena lived her entire life in the part of Rowan County that became Davidson County on 09 Dec 1822. Mary married John Sprecker Jacob (went by Jacob) Sink (1788-1866) on 11 Jan 1808 at Lexington, Rowan (became Davidson) County, North Carolina. Jacob and Magdalena were the parents of eleven known children, namely:

1. Catherine Sink Leonard (1810-c1842)
2. Henry Luther Sink (1812-1892)
3. Elizabeth Sink Sowers (1813-1851)

Some records mistakenly list George Mero Sink (1831-1862) as a child in this family, but he was the son of John George Sink (1783-1848) and Eva Long Sink (1787-p1850). In 1850 George M.
