Wagneor to Jacob Long on Cold Branch of Brushy Fork, land adj. Note: Jacob Long had marriage bond 10/28/1804 with Elizabeth Klinart. Jan 17,1787 Philip Craver to Devolt Mock 500 acres, on Fry’s Creek, next Moravian line, witnessed by Jacob Clinehart. In the 1880 census he is 83 and living with his daugher and son-in-law, Elizabeth and John Ennis.
Jodie died between 18 and according to family history, is buried somewhere in the field where his cabin once stood above a spring, which is today a lake.
Peter and Anthony Hinkle were related by marriage to Lawrence Clinard and they must have either traveled with him or joined him in Tennessee. I was delighted to find the original surveys of Tennessee land grants purchased by Lawrence and Joseph “Jodie” Clinard beginning in 1819.
The first mention of Lawrence and the Hinkle brothers was in an 1807 Robertson County court order for them to participate in road maintenance work, which was required of all home/land owners in the county. I made several trips to the Tennessee State Archives in Nashville, where I found a few items.
I got back online to see what was new and was delighted to discover Clinard researchers had posted a pretty comprehensive overview of the Clinards migration from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, including our forebears that came to Tennessee. Note: Jacob married Katherine Deck Hinkle • Captain Lop’s District 1783 tax list: Clinard, Jacob 300 acres (others include Hinkle, Davis, Sower, Sapenfield, Grimes, Sink, Myers, Livengood, Nifong, Clodfelter) 2.7. The next “tree” will be for Andy, Jodie’s brother and his family. Their children were born between 18 and included James Simeon, Hulda, Hester Ruth, Wesley, Leander and Samuel. Henry Clinard is our unspecified “brother”, possible son of Lawrence. H.” So, to give our Robertson County, Tennessee, Clinard descendants a feel for the family, one of Lawrence and Rosina’s four sons would have been your great—–grandaddy.
I contacted them to see if I could incorporate their research into mine and here is the response: Hi Jamie, My name is Rick Russell. November 5, 1783, Administration of estate of Charles Hinkle granted to Elizabeth Hinkle and Casper Hinkle, and with Anthony Hinkle and Jacob Clinehart securities. Andrew “Andy” Clinard was born Jan 28, 1805 and on some census records, it is noted he was born in NC. We’re missing one of Andy’s pages Louis was born in 1814 and married Huldah Justice on 11/2/1839. He was born about 1792 in NC and is just a five years older than Joseph (born in 1797). We know that there were two girls in the household, but have no idea their names or who they married. Get ready to meet our North Carolina Clinard cousins in my next installment, and we’ll be heading back into the 1700s with Lawrence and Rosina in Stokes County, North Carolina – the Winston-Salem area.
She was born about 1796 in Virginia (also gleaned from census records in the later 1800s).
