1760, November 27

[If Isham is 21 in 1760, William, Jr. is probably a minimum of 45—if Isham is the eldest son.]

[Is there any possibility that Rebeckah belongs to Ann??? Is there any proof that she belongs to first marriage? How old is she? Why is Isham her guardian if she doesn’t belong to first wife?]

[John Clements has died prior to August 22, 1782.]

[John White has 7 in household including himself and Ann—5 children? 1785 Amelia Census shows only 4 white souls—and 1790 looks like Ann has 6 children with her. John and Ann married in 1768, daughters b. by 1772 could possibly be married by 1785 or did John have children by a first marriage who were still with him in 1782. UNLESS Rebecka Clements was Ann’s daughter, all of Ann’s Clement children are married and on their own by 1782. Check marriage records for Rebecka, she may be married also, probably is.]

From “History of Methodism in Alabama”, p. 356-358

“There is a well authenticated tradition that Edward Clement with his family moved to where Greenesborough, Alabama, now is, in 1820, when, at the place, there were but a few persons and a few log houses, and in the course of a year or two he built a well framed and neatly weatherboarded and ceiled house, on the lot, where, now, in 1891, stands the court-house of Hale County, and as he intended it for a Hotel, and used it for that purpose, he named it the “Planter’s Inn.” In that Inn, on April 7, 1823, was born James A. Clement, the eleventh child and seventh son of Edward and Margaret Clement……Edward Clement, who was a Methodist in South Carolina before he came to Alabama, invited Dr. Christopher to preach at Greenesborough, and furnished to the preacher and his audience as a place for preaching, the reception room of the Planter’s Inn……..Edward Clement and Margaret Clement, his wife, and two of their daughters were members of …… new [Methodist] Society……..There is a tradition which says that in the time from 1823 to 1826 John Nelson, who was not a member of any Church, donated a lot in the town of Greenesborough, and on it, with his own labor and means, Edward Clement built a house of worship for the use of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Mr. Edward Clement was born in Amelia County, Virginia, September 21, 1780. His wife, Margaret Clement, née Montgomery, and related to the poet of that name, was born in the State of Pennsylvania, November 7, 1780. During their minority, Edward Clement and Margaret Montgomery went to Spartanburg District, South Carolina, where they became acquainted, and where, about 1800, they married. Soon after marriage they joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1826 Mr. Clement removed from Greenesborough and settled six miles from the place on the road leading to Centerville. He moved again and settled in four miles of Gainsville, Sumpter County, Alabama, where he died September 21, 1841. He was buried at Gainsville……..He was a muscular man, weighing about two hundred pounds. He was a man of decision, and of purpose. Though a man of few words, he was affable in spirit, and social in disposition……….

Mrs. Margaret Clement died in Perry County, Alabama, in the summer of 1855, and she was buried a Mount Hermon Church in that County, and eight miles from Greenesborough……..

James A. Clement, who was baptized in the reception room of the Planter’s Inn, in his infancy………..was licensed to preach at Mount Hermon Church, on the Centerville road, eight miles from Greenesborough, in October, 1842.
