to Archibald and John Clendennin, 340 acres in Bath County on Cow pasture.
Archibald and John were father and son. Archibald had another son, Archibald, living at his father's death, and Archibald, Jr., claimed to be
the patentee Archibald, but in 1761 he acknowledged he was not the Archibald.
Archibald, Jr., was soon after the said acknowledged grant (dated
17th February, 1761) killed by Indians. He left one daughter, Jane, who
married John Davis and is now a widow and lives in Greenbrier. Jane had
a brother; is believed to have been killed by Indians. Jane now claims
half the land. James Byrnside, prisoner in debtor's prison in Union, Monroe
