Thanks for contacting me. We have been very successful in our Clingan family research. There is a group of us that have been together since about 1997 and continue to add family members. We are now up to 54. We are at I will send you a membership if you would like to join. We do have members researching your family line. You can contact me direct at
Here is some of what I have on your family line:

John1 Patton III, born 13 May 1794; died 17 Feb 1828 in Washington Co., Tn, son of John Patton II and Elizabeth Clingan. He married on 31 Aug 1815 in Washington County, Tn Susan Broyles, daughter of Daniel Broyles and Mary (---).

       Children of John Patton III and Susan Broyles were as follows:
       2       i       Elizabeth2 Patton, born 22 Sep 1816 in Washington County, Tn..
+       3       ii       Thomas Clingan2 Patton, born 25 Mar 1818 in Washington County, Tn. He married (---) Elizabeth. Birth Source: Federal Government, 1850 Washington County, Tennessee census . ABBR 1850 Tennessee Washington County Census ABBR 1850 Washington County, Tennessee census.
       4       iii       Mary C.2 Patton, born 4 Feb 1820 in Washington County, Tn.; died 14 Jul 1885.
+       5       iv       Daniel Broyles2 Patton, born 18 Apr 1822; died 30 Aug 1887. He married Sarina C. Tilson.
       6       v       Margaret Ann2 Patton, born 19 Nov 1823 in Washington County, Tn.. She married James Washington Wilcox.
       7       vi       Richard Derrick2 Patton, born 8 Feb 1826 in Washington County, Tn.; died 13 Jul 1898. Notes: Living with Adam A. Broyles in 1850 in Washington County, TN.
       8       vii       John2 Patton, born 26 Oct 1828 in Washington County, Tn.; died Sep 1829 in Washington County, Tn..

There is more I have on the descendants of John Patton and Elizabeth Clingan. John Patton was the brother to Elizabeth Patton who married Elizabeth Clingan's brother Edward Clingan and that is my direct line. John Patton and Elizabeth Patton were the children of John Patton and Mary McCracken. Elizabeth Clingan and Edward Clingan were the children of George Clingan who died in 1768 in York Pennsylvania. Elizabeth's mother was Margaret Kirkpatrick. We believe it is possible that Edward could have had a different mother. It is possible that George Clingan was married prior to his marriage to Elizabeth Kirkpatrick. I can send all of this directly to you if you would contact me at the above address.
I also have a connection to the Broyles family but it some generations back from your Susan Broyles.
Hope to hear from you.
