    Archibald Clendennin lived on the John Walker survey, and was
    buried there in 1749. He left half the farm to his son, John, then
    about five years old, who later went to East Tennessee. The boy had
    a sister, Margaret, and James Burnside was a half brother. Archi-
    bald, Jr., a son by the first wife, moved to Greenbrier and was mur-
    dered by Indians in 1763. His wife was a Ewing. Five of his six
    children were also killed, but the wife escaped to the Cowpasture.
    George and Charles seem to have been other sons. The latter gave
    his name to the capital of West Virginia.
