5) David CLEAVENGER, the second son, and third child of Samuel and Margaret (??Ramsey ?? Vanort) Cleavenger, was born c. 1784 in Frederick County, VA. He was married in Monongalia County, VA, by Rev. Joshua Hickman, on 20 Dec 1809, to Elizabeth "Betsy" BARTLETT, born c. (?) 1784-1787, in Harrison County, VA, a d/o Thomas and Sarah Bartlett. David and "Betsy" sold in 1819, in Harrison County, VA, their share of the land, that David along with his brothers, had inherited from his father. Between 1820 and 1830, David and Betsy left Harrison County, and went "West" to what is current day Tyler County, WV (then Wood County, VA). It is unknown when or where he died, but he appears in the 1840 Wood County, VA, Census; I can find neither he nor Betsy in the 1850 Census in what is now West Virginia; however, Elizabeth Cleavenger, a widow, age 68, and born Harrison County, VA, a d/o Thomas Bartlett, was remarried in Tyler County, VA, on 4 Aug 1855, to George R. McGeorge, a widower and son of Thomas, born about 1785, in Scotland. Thus David died between the 1840 Census and 1855, when his spouse remarried. I do not know where or when Elizabeth "Betsy" (Bartlett) Cleavenger McGeorge died; even though George McGEORGE had a large family by his first spouse, I cannot find any McGeorge's in the 1860 Census in what is now West Virginia; thus, presumably, they left West Virginia between 1855 and 1860.
