That means she was the daughter Jennet mentioned in the 22 Feb 1830 Orange Co. will of Robert TINNIN (pr. Feb 1836 WB E-375), wife unknown.

James CLARK wrote his Orange Co. will 25 Feb 1850 (pr May 1854 WB G-146): son David T, dau Nancy and Letitia CLARK, Susan Jane CLARK d/o Daniel F, grandson John K HUGHES. Executor David T CLARK and son-in-law Ezekiel C FORREST; wit. John BANE & William CLARK.

Number four and number three on your list were also husband and wife:

The Hillsboro Recorder: Died, William CLARK 9 Jul 1858; "his wife died in 1832, leaving him with 5 children, one of whom pre-deceased him."

One child not mentioned by the newspaper was Stuart CLARK, mentioned in his ANDERSON grandpa's 1806 will; Stuart must have died young. An inventory of William's estate was performed 1858 by James P CLARK and John N CLARK, and shares of the estate went to them and to William H ELLIS and John WILKERSON. The 1850 Census of Orange Co. (North West Division) shows William with four unwed children: James P, Patsy, Betsy and Jane. Thus William and Letty's children were:

1 Stuart CLARK (in grandpa's 1806 will; no further info)

2 James P CLARK
He age 45, unwed in 1850 Census of Orange Co.
