Amanda was the daughter of John Clendenin and Mary Neal that married in Scott County and headed West to MO.,when Amanda and her twin sister Esther were small. Esther died during the trip and their Mother Mary died shortly after they arrived.
I believe this Mary Neal to be a sister to my 4x great grandmother Esther Jane Neal and her brother Hezekiah Neal (who I also am pretty sure are children of Calvin/Colvan Neal, son of Patrick Neal that died in Rockbridge Co. VA in 1802)
Mary Neal Clendenin’s children were:
Hezekiah P. Clendenin, Elizabeth Clendenin, Mary Emiline Clendenin, John Clendenin, Amanda Jane Clendenin, Esther Ann Clendenin, Lorina F. Clendenin, and William CALVIN Clendenin.
Donna Sherron says
Mary Neal Clendenin did not died shorty after arriving in Vernon Co., her an Amanda was gone somewhere, cause she came back and had more children.
