      II. ? John McClanahan.

      His wife was Margaret Ann, daughter of Thomas Lewis, who was a son of "John Lewis, the founder." The union between these two families, Lewis and McClanahan, beginning at that early period, has been frequently repeated down to the present time.
      " Thomas Lewis, the county surveyor, was disqualified for military service by defective vision, but was a man of culture and influence, and held various important positions. He was a member of the House of Burgesses and of the State Convention in 1775, and commissioner in 1777 to
      treat with the Indian tribes on the Ohio. He died October 31, 1790." ? WaddelVs Annals, page 80.
      John McClanahan died in 1774, leaving a son, named Thomas Lewis, who died in November, 1774. After his death a child was born in December, 1774, and was called John. His widow married William Bowyer. In a personal letter Mr. Waddell writes as follows: 'John McClanahan, son of John, was educated at William and Mary College, and was a youth of large fortune. He married Mildred Maupin, of Williamsburg, and had seven children, only two of whom lived to maturity. He went to Kentucky in 1807 and, coming back to Virginia, died in 1815, probably in Lewisburg. His son John (the third) married Eliza McClung, of Greenbrier, and died in 1838, leaving children. A daughter of John (the
      second) married Captain John Gautt, of the United States Army, and their son, N. B. Gautt, lived in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1890.
