Wow, impressive story and i like the last paragraph:"
This inscription is on a McClendon headstone in Mount Zion Cemetery at Calhoun, Louisiana: 'A people as sturdy as the oak, Stalwart as the pine, Gentle as the brook and as enduring as the hills.'" Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this with us. I have neglected my genealogy again. I got back to it a few weeks ago and then my son ended up in the hospital and required surgery. Nothing serious, but still. I am now home, until the next crisis. LOL Maybe I can get started this week, again.

Oh, I like that quote from the headstone! It reads almost like a blessing. Enjoyed learning about your Scottish heritage and I hope you look up the McLendon pattern. If it's the same as the MacLennan, I guess it would be:

deformity apparently caused him to [become?] a hunchback.

Lots of info, names, and names to keep straight. You did
a great job, Beth. It's amazing how much info you are finding
and are able to put it together from various resources to
make it applicable and interesting. I enjoyed reading about
the earliest one up to the latest ones mentioned. The legends
were great too. Thanks for including them.
Take care, Jan

I enjoyed this section about relatives hailing from places much closer to me than you are :-). You just need some Welsh and English ancestors, and you'll represent the whole of the UK! You do a great job of maintaining clarity, even when you're detailing complex family branches. I really enjoyed the read.

My goodness, you have done your research well, Beth, that was so interesting. It really pays to get stuck in and dig deep, you just never know what gems can be found. You must still have relatives over here, living, researching and might end up finding you! Now that would be fun. I thought it amazing you were able to trace back so far. Well done, my friend, I look forward to your next post! :)) Sandra xx

    I can see you're having fun, Beth! Yes, I have Covid again, and can't do much at the moment but sit and type, or sleep if I can stop coughing and can get my oxygen levels up. I'm sure I'll get there soon. I'm on enough drugs, and I have my hubby helping me. Thanks, Beth. xxx

My word Beth, you have been busy, while I am virtually absolutely ignorant beyond my grandparent, although my mother had some knowledge of her side, and my aunt traced back to the 17th century, I'm not as au fait as you, well done, great tracing, blessings Roy
