    Notes 
    • Moved to Pocahontas Co. WVA [Cleek] Settled on Deer Creek. Referred to as Major Daniel, was a major of the militia, very hard working, fine looking officer in the annual parades. [Price]

      Bath Co Marriages p.63 shows David (not Daniel) McGlaughlin m. Mary Carpenter Dec. 13 1823. Hmm. Probably a mis-transcription, as these 2 names are easy to confuse.

      No death record in Pocahontas co.
