Preface. 



"There is a deep significance and a profound philosophy in 
that Divine economy enjoined upon the ancient Israelites to pre- 
serve their ancient pedigrees, and to hold in sacred veneration 
the memory of their forefathers; and so it was that when the 
Child Jesus was born of this race, though of humble and ob- 
scure family, Matthew was able to give his paternal pedigree, as 
the son of Joseph, back through forty-two generations to Abra- 
ham, and Licke, his maternal pedigree, as the son of Mary, 
through seventy-six generations to Adam. 

" Nothing, at first sight, seems less interesting or less instruc- 
tive than a genealogical table — a mere register of names and 
dates. But, each of these names is the memorial of a human 
heart that once lived and died — a heart that kept its steady pul- 
sations through some certain period of time, and then ceased to 
beat, and mouldered into dust. Each of these names is a me- 
morial of an individual human life that had its joys and sorrows; 
its cares and burdens; its affections and hopes; its conflicts and 
achievements; its opportunities wasted or improved, and its 
hour of death. Each of these dates of birth, marriage and 
death ! Oh ! how significant ! What a day was each of these to 
some human family, or to some circle of loving human hearts." 

Daniel Webster once said: " The man who feels no sentiment 
of veneration for the memory of his forefathers; who has no 
natural regard for his ancestors or his kindred, is himself un- 
worthy of kindred, regard or remembrance." 

The name McGavock is Scotch or Seetehr- Irish, and if there is ' 
any family of the same name in the United States, other than 
the one of whom this work treats, after long and carelul search, 
I have failed to learn of it. No descendant of James McGavock, 
Sr., who has been heard from, has been omitted from this his- 
tory; and if there are any left out, the reason is that repeated 
enquiries have not been responded to. 



4 Preface. 

Wherever the MrGavock blood has flowed I have endeavored 
to trace it, and have given it a place here; because, " While the 
male line alone perpetuates the mere family name, both male 
and female lines, alike, and in equal degree, perpetuate the 
blood, whatever names they or their descendants, to the remotest 
generation, may chance to bear. They are equal heirs in blood, 
and equal heirs in law." 

To the Hon. Nathaniel Morgan, of Hartford, Conn., I am in- 
debted for the plan of this work, and the larger part of this 
preface, he having generously given me the privilege of using a 
work of his, James Harris and His Descendants, as it pleased 
me. 

To all who responded to my enquiries, by letter or otherwise, 
I return thanks for the information afforded me. That informa- 
tion has been obtained by correspondence and personal inter- 
views with many individuals in a dozen of these United States, 
by visiting cemeteries and inspecting family records, and is sub- 
mitted to the living descendants of James McGavock with the 
hope that it may both profit and please every one of them. 



Explanation 



Each generation is given separately and in regular order of 
uccession. 

Each name has its fixed catalogue number in the margin, and 
: carried forward for further history retains its fixed number. 

To trace backward, take the name and number of any par- 
cular one in the margin; the name and number of that one's 
arent will be seen at the head of this particular table; the name 
nd number of this parent is to be found in the margin of the 
receding generation, while the name and number at the head 
f this table show the grandparent, and so through each gener- 
tion the entire line is shown upward to the original ancestor. 
)ne example will suffice. Take David Gray Langhorne, No. 
243, son of Maurice D. Langhorne, No. 699, son of John A. 
-anghorne, who married Margaret L. Kent, No. 242, daughter 
f Jacob Kent, No. 55, son of Col. Joseph Kent, who married 
largaret McGavock, No. 6, daughter of James McGavock, No. 
, and common ancestor. 

To trace downward, reverse the process. 

The relationship between any two of the family may be found 
y tracing both lines upward until they unite in a common an- 
sstor, and then noting in a third column the several degrees of 
inship from that common ancestor downward, arranging them 
ith the highest numbers at the bottom. For example: What 

the degree of kinship between Annie D. McGavock, No. 
026, and Spence McGavock, No. 1 176 ? 

Gen. I. James McGavock, common ancestor. 

Gen. II. Hugh McGavock, No. 2. David McGavock, No. 

3. Brothers. 
Gen. III. Robert McGavock, No. 17. Francis McGavock, 

No. 26. First cousins. 



6 Explanation. 

Gen. IV. Randal H. McGavock, No. no. David H. Mc- 
Gavock, No. 169. Second cousins. 

Gen. V. Thomas E. McGavock, No. 375. Frank O. Mc- 
Gavock, No. 558. Third cousins. 

Gen. VI. Annie D. McGavock, No. 1026. Spence McGav- 
ock, No. 1176. Fourth cousins. 

The lineage upward, of the following names, is found in the 
same manner to meet in David McGavock, No. 3. 

Lucie Harris, 536, dau. of Lucinda McGavock, 157, dau. of 
James McGavock, 24. 

Kitty McFerrin, 546, dau. of Tennessee McGavock, 165, dau. 
of John McGavock, 25. 

Myra L. McGavock, 556, dau. of David S. McGavock, 178, 
son of Randal McGavock, 27. 

Bettie Hays, 604, dau. of Emily McGavock, 190, dau. of 
Lysander McGavock, 30. 

Second cousins. First cousins. Brothers. 

The first date after the name is the date of birth, the second 
that of marriage, the third that of death; these are generally 
abbreviated thus, b., m., d. Son, daughter, grandson, grand- 
daughter, etc., are sometimes abbreviated, s., dau., gr. s.,g.gr. 
s., etc. Rem. stands for removed, res. for resides, unm. for un- 
married. 

Where names are abbreviated and dates omitted, the full name 
and the dates will be found in the next generation, where the 
number is carried forward, whenever it has been possible. 



THE McGAVOCK FAMILY. 



GENERATION I. 

" Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: 
ask thy father, and he will show thee; thy elders, and they will tell 
thee." — Deut., xxxii, 7. 

James McGavock, Sen., 1, was born 1728, in the county of 
Antrim, Ireland, near Glenarm, and emigrated in early life to 
America, leaving a widowed mother and an only brother, Ran- 
dal, at the homestead, called Camton. He landed at Philadel- 
phia, and soon sought employment in the business he had been 
accustomed to, viz: that of farming. Tradition says, that, hav- 
ing acquired the means, he purchased a wagon and team, and 
for a time was engaged in carrying provisions for the army un- 
der Gen. Braddock. He must, therefore, have come to Amer- 
ica about 1754-55. He came to that part of Augusta county, 
Va. , which is now Rockbridge county, previous to or in the 
early part of 1757, as there is a land indenture endorsed, "from 
Samuel McDowell and Mary, his wife, to James McGavock, and 
proven in open court, 17 March, 1757; signed, John Madison, 
Cl'k." This paper is among the old papers at Fort Chiswell. 

In the year 1760, he married Mary Cloyd, daughter of David 
Cloyd, Sr. , and Margaret Campbell, and sister to Elizabeth Cloyd, 
wife of James McDowell, who was the father of James McDow- 
ell, who married Sarah Preston, and these last were the parents 
of the late Hon. James McDowell, Governor of Virginia. From 
Rockbridge he removed to what was then Fincastle county, Va. , 
now Wythe, and settled at Fort Chiswell, which was embraced 
in a large body of land purchased by him, and is still in the pos- 
session of some of his descendants. 



8 The McGavock Family. 

" Mr. McGavock came of that remarkable people, the Scotch- 
Irish, who have done so much for the liberties of this country, 
and for education generally, and the dissemination of Presbyte- 
rian principles, especially in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Caro- 
lina and Tennessee. As an Old-Countryman he understood 
the solid value of land. Like an Old-Countryman, also, he 
wished to found a family with landed estates. In this he was 
eminently successful," acquiring by his aptitude for business and 
his industry and energy, large and valuable bodies of land. 

With credit to himself, and general satisfaction to the public, 
he filled several important offices of honor and trust. 

He was a magistrate when that office was entrusted only to 
men fitted for the responsible duties of the place. He must 
have held the office of commissary, being entrusted with the 
disposal of provisions for the Continental army, as the following 
receipt, now in the possession of his descendants at Fort Chis- 
well, will show: 

Fort Chiswell, Sept. 13, 1776. 

Received of James McGavock six bushels of Corn out of the 

public Magazine, for the use of three Wagons under my care on 

the Cherokee Expedition. 

John Bownan. 

He was one of the committee of fifteen, consisting of such 
men as Rev. Charles Cummings, William Campbell, Colonel 
William Preston, Captain Stephen Trigg, Major Arthur Camp- 
bell, and others, appointed by the citizens of Fincastle county, 
Va., to draft resolutions expressive of the privileges and rights 
they as free men possessed; and declaring their determination 
" never to surrender those rights to any power on earth but at 
the expense of their lives." These resolutions were adopted 
January 20, 1775, four months before the Mecklenburg, N. C. , 
declaration. They were forwarded to the Continental Congress, 
at Philadelphia, and can be seen in the Congressional Library, 
at Washington, D. C. , and the State Library, Richmond, Va. 
He was an affectionate husband, kind father, social companion, 
and generous benefactor. An instance of his noble generosity 
is to this effect: 



The McGavock Family. 9 

" When he first landed in this country, four other young Irish- 
men, his companions ' en voyage,' were about to be sold to pay 
their passage-money; thereupon he promptly volunteered to 
part with all his means, save one pound, rather than see his fel- 
low-countrymen subjected to such humiliation." 

Noble generosity and self-denial — evincing the truth, that a 
sympathising heart and an open hand are greater riches than 
stores of wealth with a grasping, callous soul. "There is that 
maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches." Prov. xiii, 7. 
His many pounds freed his fellow-countrymen; his one pound 
gained for himself and his numerous descendants many thous- 
ands. 

Mr. McGavock, who in stature was full six feet in height, 
stout of frame, and with a constitution to endure labor and 
stand exposure, lived to be over fourscore years of age, and 
died at the home of his youngest son, Joseph, at Max-Meadow, 
22d March, 1812, and is buried at the family cemetery at Fort 
Chiswell. His widow, who survived him fifteen years, was born 
in Rockbridge county, Va. , 14 March, 1741, and died at her 
son-in-law's, Colonel Joseph Kent, 5 March, 1827. 

They had five sons and five daughters, as follows:

GENERATION II. 



" Irresistible Time! . 

Behold, 

Earth's proudest boast, beneath thy silent sway, 
Sweep headlong to destruction, thou the while 
Unmoved and heedless."— Kirke White. 

" For death and life, with ceaseless strife, 
Beat wild on this world's shore, 
And all our calm is in that balm, 
Not lost, but gone before."— Hon. Mrs. Norton. 

Hugh McGavock, 2, son of James, Sen., born in Rockbridge 
county, Va., 25 September, 1761, married, first, a Miss Camp- 
bell, whose parents— their names unknown— resided on Cripple 
creek, Wythe county, Va. She survived her marriage a very 
shore time. He next married Nancy Kent, daughter of Jacob 
Kent and Mary, nee Crockett, of Montgomery county, Va. , 29 
March, 1785. She was born 11 December, 1763, was the sister 
of Colonel Joseph Kent, who married Margaret McGavock, No. 
6, and belonged to a family distinguished in Revolutionary an- 
nals; three of her uncles, Colonels Hugh, Andrew and Walter 
Crockett being officers in the Revolutionary war. She died 10 
February, 1835. By well authenticated tradition he was in a 
volunteer company under Colonel Joseph Crockett in the Revo- 
lutionary war to repel an invasion by the Indians on the Ohio 
frontier.' He died at his home at Max-Meadow, Wythe county, 
Va., 2 April, 1844.

David McGavock, 3, son of James, Sen., born in Rock- 
bridge county, Va., 6 February, 1763, married, first, Elizabeth 
McDowell, daughter of James McDowell and Elizabeth Cloyd, 
his wife, 16 June, 1789. She was born in Rockbridge county, 

Va., and died there, while on a visit, , 1807. She 

was first cousin to her husband, and also to General Gordon 
Cloyd, Thomas and David Cloyd, sons of Colonel Joseph Cloyd, 
all late of Pulaski county, Va., and the aunt of the late Gover- 
nor James McDowell, of Virginia, and of the wife of the Hon. 
Thomas H. Benton, late U. S. Senator from Missouri. 

David McGavock was one of the early settlers of Nashville. 
In 1786 he had located in and around the settlement, in the 
names of his father arid himself, 2,240 acres of the best land he 
could find, including a tract of several hundred acres around 
Freeland's station. He came to Tennessee a surveyor, for which 
he was fitted by a liberal education and great physical power of 
endurance. His good judgment is yet apparent in the location 
of lands taken up and purchased by him in Davidson and Wil- 
liamson counties, Tennessee. He inherited in a large measure 
the energy, indomitable will, and integrity of his honored father —

traits of character ensuring success, and qualifying him to be a 
prominent and safe leader in a newly settled country. He made 
Nashville his permanent residence in 1795. In 1806 he was 
elected by the legislature of Tennessee, Register of the Land 
Office, and was the incumbent thereof until his death, which 
occurred 7 August, 1838. 

His second wife was the widow Mary Hubble {nee Turner), 
whom he married in 1812. She was born in North Carolina, 
and died in Nashville, 1834. By her he had two sons. By his 
first wife he had nine children, in all eleven.

She, daughter of James Crockett and Mary Drake his wife, was 
born 23 May, 1778, and died 27 November, 1826. 

James McGavock lived and died at the old homestead, Fort 
Chiswell. The house, composed partly of logs, was burned

down in 1901, and being on the main road from Lynchburg, Va., 
to Knoxville, Tenn., a road much used for transporting goods 
from the eastern markets to the west, and also a stage route, 
was long known as one of the best country taverns in Virginia. 
In that day, the travelling public demanding it, houses of en- 
tertainment were kept by not a few of the wealthiest and best 
families. Here General Andrew Jackson, travelling to and from 
Washington city by private conveyance, often stayed, being a 
personal friend of this McGavock and of others, especially David, 
Randal and Jacob, of Tennessee. 

The Fort Chi.* well land was originally granted, by the Crown, 
to Thomas Walker; and the fort, built for defence against the 
Indians, was named for Captain Chisvvell, an English officer. 
Tradition assigns it the honor of being the place where General 
Morgan, of Revolutionary fame, received 500 lashes for resent- 
ing an insult put upon him by an officer in the British army; 
this however is very doubtful.

Cfatrch." The house of worship, built of logs, still stands on 
the McGavock lands, near Max-Meadow. Here the elder Mc- 
Gavocks, many of the Kents, Crocketts, Grahams and other 
Presbyterian families were accustomed to worship. The name 
is singular. This part of the valley of Reed creek was called 



24 The McGavock Family. 

the " Valley of Contention and Strife," two parties bitterly and 
long contending at law for the ownership. One of them, as he 
closed his survey, striking his staff in the ground exclaimed: 
' Here is my anchor and hope; here, in this valley of contention, 
I end the strife." Hence the name; and on that spot, the start- 
ing point and terminus of that survey, the church was built. 
Mr. McNutt was also pastor of New Dublin Church, having 
been installed over it in 1S16. His pastorate over these churches 
closed in 1828, when he removed to Rockville, Ind., where he 
died 21 January, 1869.

Max-Meadow, Wythe county, Va., 4 December, 1801, married 
Dr. Andrew B. Ewing, 1 May, 1821. For nearly fifty-five years 
they lived together, happy in each others esteem, confidence 
and love. As wife, mother, neighbor and Christian she was an 
example and pattern for all. After years of slow wasting and 
much suffering, patiently borne, she died, 6 January, 1876. 
' Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, 
and he praiseth her." 

The following sketch is condensed from an article by another: 

'Andrew B. Ewing, son of William Ewing and Margaret Love 
his wife, was born at Barton's Station (a block house), in David- 



The McGavock Family. 25 

son county, Tenn., 27 July, 1796, trained in the best schools of 
his time, at one time a pupil of the celebrated Gideon Black- 
burn, D. D., completing the full course at Cumberland College, 
Nashville, and reading medicine in the office of Dr. Roane, he 
graduated at the Medical University of New York in 18 19, and 
immediately afterwards settled in Franklin, Tenn. He soon laid 
the foundation of confidence in the hearts of the people, which 
grew with his years and was maintained to the last. His con- 
geniality, liveliness, entertaining conversation, and stia-viter in 
modo made him a pleasing companion, welcomed in every social 
circle; and these qualities stood him in good part in his profes- 
sion, eminently fitting him for practice among the gentler sex. 
He was remarkable for his politeness, to the young as well as to 
the aged, alike at home and abroad. 

" By the unanimous voice of the Williamson County Medical 
Society, notwithstanding his reluctance to occupy positions of 
prominence, he was made its President, which post he filled with 
signal dignity and ability. 

"A decided and consistent Christian and member of the Pres- 
byterian Church, he filled his place sans penr et sans reproache. 

" Having retired from the active duties of his profession upon 
the completion of its fiftieth anniversary, and being past three- 
score years of age, he spent the remaining years of his life in 
quietude, but not in indolence, at his home near Franklin, Tenn., 
amid his children and grandchildren, at whose hands he received 
respectful veneration and loving attention up to the time of his 
death, which occurred May 15, 1881."

28 The McGavock Family. 

Francis McGavock, 26, son of David, born in Wythe 

county, Yu., 31 January, 1794, married Amanda P. Harding, 

23 October, 1S23. She, the eldest child of John Harding and 

Susannah {nee Shute), was born 23 October, 1807, and died 24 
October, 1873. 

"Francis McGavock came to Nashville, with his parents, 
when but two years old, and was educated at its University 
under Dr. Priestly. In early life he had charge of the State 
Office for the registration of lands. For half a score or more of 
years he was Clerk of the Chancery Court at Nashville." An 
intimate friend says of him: "He was a man of large public 
spirit and strong personal attachments, a true specimen of the 
Old School gentleman. Dignified in bearing, but kind of heart, 
the unworthy approached him with awe, his equals with respect- 
ful ease. Hospitable almost to a fault, and ever ready to extend 
the hand of help to the needy and worthy, he lived as near the 
' Golden Rule ' as any ever did." 

By his energy and industry he added largely to his estate, 
being possessed at his decease, which occurred 23 December, 
1866, of valuable houses and lots in Nashville, and lands in 
Davidson and Cheatham counties, Tenn.

and grand-daughter of Hon. Felix Grundy, was born 9 Decem- 
ber, 1829. A custom of Mrs. McGavock's vve note with pleas- 
ure, and commend to all who have the means of doing likewise. 
It has been her habit for years to take to her house from two to 
three orphans, generally from the asylum in New Orleans, to act 
as household servants; at the same time educating them, giving 
special attention to their religious training, and when they are 
of age paying the outfit agreed upon, and finding them suitable 
homes and employment. We have seen the fatherless and 
motherless little ones as happy as larks, and as gentlemanly and 
ladylike in their deportment as the most fastidious could desire. 

Mr. McGavock was a successful farmer on a large scale, and 
in his dignified but pleasing manners reminded one of a gentle- 
man of the olden time. He has always avoided public life, the 
comforts of home and the retirement of private life being more 
congenial to his tastes. He died 7 June, 1893.

cipal. His certificate, the only one given in Capt. Partridge's 
handwriting, closes thus: "I hereby recommend William G. 
Harding, a graduate of this institution, as a scholar, a gentle- 
man and a soldier, to all whom it may concern."

ried, 23 May, 1838, Mary E. Byars, daughter of Col. William 
Byars and Elizabeth {nee Beatty). She was born in Washing- 
ton county, Va., 23 October, 1813. 

In departing from the plan of not putting under a head num- 
ber, and not recording a second time the name of one who is 
without children, I do so in this instance, because Joseph Cloyd 
deserves a prominent place in the history of this family, and 
because of the intimate and friendly relations between him and 
myself. I lived in his house two years, was his pastor six years; 
he largely aided and warmly befriended me in times of trouble 
and difficulty, and so I learned to know and appreciate his worth 
as a Christian and a friend, his usefulness as a citizen and an

officer in the church, he being a Ruling Elder in the New 
Dublin Church, of which I was pastor from 1866 to 1872. 
Major Cloyd was one of the most experienced and successful 
farmers and graziers in Southwest Virginia, and was one of the first 
to introduce thorough bred Durham cattle in that section of the 
State. His excellent judgment, large experience, and untiring 
industry procured him the position of Purchasing Agent for the 
Southwestern District, from the Confederate Government, with 
the rank of Major, which office he ably filled, holding it until the 
close of the war. His wife, Mary, in her sphere was his equal, 
and, co-operating together, the good estates each inherited have 
been largely increased. Not blessed with children of their own, 
the children of others, already largely benefitted by them, have 
reason to rise up and call them blessed. Major Cloyd died 19 July, 
1884. Mrs. Cloyd died 23 May, 1892. 

Cynthia Mary Cloyd, 82, daughter of David, born in 
Pulaski county, Va., 18 February, 1820, married David Shall

Rev. Philip Lindsley, was Chancellor of the University of Nash- 
ville for twenty-five years, and had a national reputation as an 
educator. 

"J. B. Lindsley graduated at the University of Nashville in 
1839, and in medicine in Louisville in 1843. His medical studies 
were preparatory to the ministry, to which he was ordained by 
the Presbytery of Nashville, October, 1846. In 1855 he was 
unanimously chosen Chancellor of his alma mater, and was one 
of the founders of its medical department. 

" In 1867 he organized the Montgomery Bell Academy, and 
the same year brought forward the idea of a great normal college 
in connection with the ' Peabody Educational Fund.' ' To him 
is ascribed the origin of the idea of the Nashville Centennnial, 
which was attended with the greatest success, in May, 1880. 
Other positions of responsibility he has successfully filled, and 
has ever been a warm advocate of all that promotes the well 
being of man. Dr. Lindsley died 7 December, 1897. Mrs. 
Lindsley died July, 1903.

away."

ADDENDA. 



Among the many families connected with the McGavocks, 
some members of which were distinguished for intelligence and 
usefulness, there are those deserving a more particular and 
extended notice than is given them in the body of this book. 
Of these we select a few; and first are the 

CLOYDS. 

It is a family tradition that soon after the raising of the siege 
of Londonderry, Ireland, which occurred in 1689, three brothers, 
James, Joseph and David Cloyd, left Ireland, came to America, 
and settled in Chester county, Penn., where, it seems, many of 
the Protestant-Irish and Scotch-Irish of that day settled; many 
of them remaining there to bring up families of useful citizens, 
and many others removing thence in after years to the ' ' Valley 
of Virginia," whose descendants, as Christians and patriots, 
have given tone to that beautiful and prosperous section of the 
mother of States of this great Republic. 

One of these three immigrants, James Cloyd, born about 
1780, was at the siege of Derry when only nine years of age. 
He remained in Chester county, Pa., during his life and died 
there in 1769. He had among other children a son James, who 
was born 1707, married Margaret Wilson, and died 1803, aged 
96. He lived at Whiteland, Chester county, Pa., and had a 
family of several children. Some of his descendants still reside 
in Chester and Montgomery counties, Pa. 

Of Joseph Cloyd, the immigrant, but little is known. By 
some of that particular branch of the family he is sometimes 
confounded with a Michael Cloyd, who is said to have been an 
immigrant brother of James and David. But this we think is a 
mistake. There was a Michael who lived at Amsterdam, Va., 
and there is in the possession of Joseph G. Kent, son of the late 
Gordon C. Kent, of Wythe county, Va., a letter in which men- 



154 The McGavock Family. 

tion is made of " Michael Cloyd, uncle of Gordon Cloyd." This 
uncle Michael must then have been a brother of Colonel Joseph 
Cloyd, son of David the immigrant, and could not have been 
himself an immigrant. 

Of David Cloyd, Sen., we can speak more confidently. Com- 
ing from Ireland with his brothers James and Joseph, he settled 
first in Chester county, Pa. He moved thence to Delaware and 
bought land in New Castle county. In 1733 he sold his land in 
Delaware, bought in Augusta county, Va., in 1745, and moved 
to make his residence there for life. 

David Cloyd's wife, who was Margaret, nee Campbell, and his 
son John were killed by the Indians, the attack being made while 
the men were at work in a distant field. Waddell in his " Annals 
of Augusta County," page 126, refers to David Cloyd's house 
being rifled by the Indians in 1764, and his bringing suit in 1766 
to recover some of the money which was found on a dead Indian. 
The date of his death is uncertain. In his will he mentions the 
following children, viz: James, David, Michael, Elizabeth and 
Margaret, omitting Mary and Joseph. 

David Cloyd, second son of David, Sen., married Elizabeth 
-. They had nine children. 

Michael Cloyd, son of David, Sen., married Elizabeth Neely. 
They had eight sons and one daughter. Betsy. 

Elizabeth Cloyd, eldest daughter of David, Sen., married James 
McDowell, second son of John McDowell and Magdalen, nee 
Woods, and grandson of Ephriam McDowell, the immigrant, and 
his wife Margaret, nee Irvine. 

James McDowell and Elizabeth Cloyd his wife had three chil- 
dren, viz: James, who married Sarah Preston, daughter of Col. 
William Preston, and granddaughter of John Preston, the immi- 
grant. 

James and Sarah (Preston) McDowell were the parents of 
James McDowell, several years member of the Virginia Legisla- 
ture, member of Congress, member of the Virginia Convention 
of 1829-30, Governor of Virginia. James and Sarah (Preston) 
McDowell were also the parents of Elizabeth McDowell, wife of 
Hon. Thomas H. Benton, who for thirty successive years was 
United States Senator from Missouri, and also the parents of 
Susan McDowell, wife of Col. William Taylor, of Alexandria, Va. 



Addenda. 155 

Elizabeth McDowell, daughter of James McDowell and Eliza- 
beth, nee Cloyd, married her first cousin, David McGavock, the 
second child of James McGavock and Mary, nee Cloyd. 

Sarah McDowell another daughter of James McDowell and 
Elizabeth Cloyd, his wife, married her first cousin Maj. John 
McDowell, son of Judge Samuel McDowell and his wife Mary 
McClung. This Major McDowell was a captain in the Revolu- 
tionary War. Was with Washington at the crossing of the Del- 
aware, fought at Princeton, Trenton, and at Brandy wine, at 
which latter place he was severely wounded, but was at the sur- 
render at Yorktown. He served as major in the War of 1812, 
represented the county of Fayette, Ky., in the State Legislature 
for six elections, and was a member of the Convention of Ken- 
tucky that framed the State Constitution that lasted fifty years. 

Mary Cloyd, daughter of David, Sen., who married James 
McGavock has alreadv been spoken of, but it is eminently proper 
to refer to her clear intellect, untiring industry, and strong will- 
power; characteristics which doubtless greatly aided her husband 
in his business affairs wherein he was so successful. 

Joseph Cloyd, son of David, Sen., was born 10 June, 1742, 
married Mary Gordon, and died 3 August, 1833. They had 
three sons, Gordon, Thomas and David. He moved from 
Rockbridge county, Va. , to Montgomery, now Pulaski county, 
and settled on Back creek, the place being still in the possession 
of his great grand children. It is related of his wife that she 
would not consent to come to this then backwoods country unless 
her husband promised that as soon as he was comfortably settled 
he would take the necessary steps to have a Presbyterian church 
built, in which she might worship after the manner and forms 
she had been accustomed to do. This promise he fulfilled, and 
the result was the erection of a house of worship, and in due 
time the organization of a Presbyterian church, which still exists 
and is known as New Dublin Church, one mile north of Dublin 
Depot. 

Joseph Cloyd in early life, while yet only thirty two years of 
age, was honored with a commission as captain of a company 
of militia of the county of Fincastle, by Earl Dunmore, Gover- 
nor of Virginia. This commission was dated Williamsburg, Va., 
S March, 1774. In 1779 he was appointed by Governor Thomas 



156 The McGavock Family. 

Jefferson a major of militia in Colonel Wm. Preston's Battallion 
of 300, in the county of Montgomery, Va. These two com- 
missions are in the possession of his great grandson, David 
McNutt Cloyd. He was also engaged in the battles of Guilford, 
Cowpens and King's Mountain, and was promoted colonel. He 
died aged 91 years and over. He had four children, Gordon, 
Thomas, David, and a daughter who married her cousin Joseph 
Cloyd, of Amsterdam, Va. She died leaving no issue. The 
three brothers are spoken of in the body of this book. 

KENT. 

The best authenticated information we have concerning the 
Kent family of southwest Virginia comes through Mrs. Jane Bu- 
ford, a daughter of Jacob Kent, Sen. The few facts about to be 
related were given by Mrs. Buford to members of the family of 
the third generation, and transmitted by them to the descendants 
still living. 

Jacob Kent was born in England about 1730, and emigrated 
to America, sailing from Amsterdam, Holland, with two other 
brothers, and landed at New York about 1750. Leaving his 
brothers in New York he came to Virginia and settled in that 
part of Augusta county which is now Montgomery, living on his 
estate called Edge Hill. He married Mary Crockett, daughter 
of Joseph Crockett and Jane, nee Divinnee, by whom he had five 
children, viz: John, who married a Miss Barnett; Jane, who 
married, first, Maj. Thomas Quirk, by birth Irish, and an officer 
in the Continental Army. He dying, she married Henry Bu- 
ford, of Bedford county, Virginia, and herself died at an advanced 
age; then Nancy, who married Hugh McGavock, Sen.; then 
Jacob, who died unmarried; and lastly Joseph, who married 
Margaret McGavock. He inherited the Fortheringay estate in 
Montgomery county which he exchanged for the home he lived 
and died at on Reed creek, Wythe county, Virginia. See Mar- 
garet McGavock, No. 6, page 15. 

Jacob Kent the immigrant lived but a few years after his mar- 
riage. His widow survived him many years, and died March, 
1826, being 86 years of age. She had several brothers, of whom 
Colonel Hugh, Colonel Andrew and Colonel Walter were Revo- 



Addenda. 157 

lutionary officers in the Continental army. Two of the brothers, 
Andrew and Walter, removed to Kentucky and left numerous 
descendants. 

They are related, but rather distantly, to those of the name 
now living in southwest Virginia. 

Of the descendants of the brothers of Jacob Kent, Sen., we 
have no certain knowledge; but it is more than probable that 
Chancellor Kent, of New York, author of Kent's Commentaries, 
a work of great value to all lawyers, was descended from one of 
those brothers who came to America about the middle of the 
eighteenth century, as was also the late Horace L. Kent, for 
many years a wholesale dry goods merchant of Richmond, Va. 

The Kents far outnumber any other of the descendants of 
James McGavock, except those bearing the McGavock name. 

EWING. 

The name in all probability was originally " MacEwen," being 
Scotch. The MacEwens emigrated from Scotland to Ireland, 
and thence as Scotch-Irish to America. The name Ewen is 
Gaelic for John, and then Ewen MacEwen for son of John. 
The Mac was first left off to anglicise the name, or to shorten it. 
The g was added at a later period to make it more English, or to 
distinguish it from some other name in en or in. The e and i in 
such names being often interchanged. 

Andrew Ewing, the ancestor of the Virginia and Tennessee 
Ewings, emigrated to America from the city of Belfast, Ireland, 
about 1720, and first settled in Pennsylvania, and thence moved 
to Rockbridge county, Va., and there resided until his death. 
Before leaving Ireland he married Eliza Milford. Of the above 
Andrew and Eliza was born Andrew, in Rockbridge county, Va., 
15 March, 1740, and married Susannah Shannon, 1760, and died 
in Davidson county, Tenn. (whither they had moved), April, 
1813. 

To Andrew Ewing and Susannah were born: Andrew, who 
married Sallie Hickman; Margaret, who married Andrew Castle- 
man; William, who married Margaret Love; Amelia, who mar- 
ried Moses Spear; Nathan, who married Sallie Hill, and Elizabeth 
who married Thomas Shannon. 



158 The McGavock Family. 

A remarkable occurrence took place at the deaths of the 
brothers Andrew and Nathan Ewing, which occurred i May, 
1830. A few moments before Andrew died he said: " I see that 
Nathan has gone before me." In a few hours a messenger from 
Nashville arrived in Franklin, Term., announcing the death of 
Nathan, of whose illness Andrew knew nothing. They died in 
a few moments of each other. 

We cannot for want of space and time trace up all the differ- 
ent families of this branch of Ewings, but will refer only to the 
family of William Ewing, who married Margaret Love. He 
was born in Rockbridge county, Va., 29 November, 1771, mar- 
ried his wife 26 May, 1795, and died 24 November, 1845. They 
had twelve children, as follows: Andrew B.,see Eliza McDowell 
McGavock, No. 21, page 24; Joseph L., see Sally McGavock, 
No. 32, page 30; Felix; Margaret; Susan S. ; Milton P.; Eliza 
M. ; William L. ; Jessie H. ; Cyrus G. ; Margaret A. ; Mary Jane. 

This family of Ewings, as above recorded, is a different one 
though we suppose distantly related to that family referred to in 
a foot note on page 19 of this book. That Captain Ewmg was 
raised by his uncle Robert Ewing, of Baltimore, Md. About 
1785 he removed to Tennessee and settled on White's creek, 
Davidson county, where he lived until his death, April, 1822. 
He married Sallie Smith in 1787, and they had born to them the 
following children: John Love, James, Lucinda, see book page 
19, William, Alexander C, Randal McGavock, Oscar Smith and 
William Black. The latter was the father of Dr. Ewing, of 
Nashville, who married a Miss Adams, and of the first wife of 
Hon. James Blackmore, of Gallatin, Tenn.
