Trouble remembering your user names and passwords?

If you use Microsoft's Internet Explorer 4 or 5, you can automatically save you user name and password, Netscape doesn't have this feature (that I know of). Additionally, it is a good idea to save your user names and passwords on 3 x 5 cards in an index card file or on a spiral version of the cards in case your computer crashes, etc. Here are two neat programs, the first one keep passwords, while the second program has a few more features:

PassKeeper for Windows by Brad Greenlee (Free)

Password Keeper for Windows by Gregory Braun (Free to try, $20 if you decide to keep it.)


If possible, please post messages to the McCLENDONs and McLENDONs Genealogy Discussion Web after registering, but if that doesn't work for you, to post a message in the e-mail section of the Genealogy: McCLENDONs and McLENDONs on the Internet, send your e-mail to me at Use this word: "Genealogy" in the subject field. Please be patience about your listing as I stay behind in posting them. If you want an instant posting use the McCLENDONs and McLENDONs Genealogy Discussion Web.


Remember that you can use your web browser to search the contents of any web page for specific words or names by clicking on "Edit" in the menu bar (in most web browsers), then "Find" (in most web browsers) and typing in the word or name, then clicking on "OK" or something equivalent to that word.

Earliest Known McClendon Ancestor

From: Donna McGuyer McCLENDON
To: Patricia D. McClendon

Subject: "Earliest Known McClendon Ancestor"

Pat and Melba:
Our earliest proven McClendon ancestor is Joseph Parker McClendon b. 1857 in Washington Parish, LA. He was married at least two times that I know of: Julia Lott (our ancestor) and Laura Perry (who also had McClendon children).

Although I strongly suspect Joseph "Joe" McClendon was the son of William and Mary McClendon (referring to 1860 Census of Washington Parish, LA) there is conflicting evidence (i.e. the death certificate that Artena Faye McClendon obtained that shows his father as Frank McClendon). I've been trying to iron this out for sometime but haven't been successful.

I lean toward the census record as being correct because of the following matches to what we know about Joe: his birth date, his older brother named John, an older sister and the location of Washington Parish. I can't explain the death certificate other than the fact that the information provider didn't know the full name of Joe's father or didn't have accurate information. Family tradition says Joe's father died about 1863. This would support my inaccurate information theory.

I located John (right age for Joe's brother) in the 1870 Washington Parish LA Census living as a farm laborer in the household of Levi Self. This would support the early demise (or absence) of their father. However, I haven't been able to locate Mary (William's widow) and Joe and his sister in the 1870 Census.

In 1880 I located Joseph in the household of Mary Stateham (not sure of spelling) in Washington Parish LA. She is listed as a widow, Joseph as her son, age 22. There are Stateham children (Daniel W. age 16 and Angelina C. age 14) in the household as well a daughter named Ellen age 19 who appears to have the McClendon name. If this is actual our Joe, then Ellen would make sense because were were always told Joe had a brother and two sisters but his father died while they were young.

If Mary Stateham is the same as Mary McClendon, then that means she would have started her Stateham family by 1864 or 1865 (referring to Daniel's age). The census writing is difficult to read so I'm not sure of the spelling of the last name but Mary and the other names are very clear. I've looked for the name in the 1870 Census of Washington Parish but haven't found it under that spelling.

This is one scenario of what could have happened: William died during the civil war and Mary remarried. Then by 1880 her second husband was dead. Who ever gave the death certificate info could have gotten Joe's father's name confused with his stepfather or with an uncle or grandfather. If Joe lost his father at a young age who was replaced by a stepfather, he might not have known much about his McClendon father.

Joe and Julia (Lott) McClendon's first child was born in 1883. Although I haven't located their marriage date (courthouse fire), It most likely was between the 1880 census and the birth of their first child, possibly 1881 or 1882.

I hope you can make sense out of this. I have only researched the William McClendon angle of the story so if anyone else has other info, please let me know. Any help is appreciated.

Best Regards,

Artena Faye McClendon

James, Artena and David McClendon

John Edward McCLENDON (March 9, 1891 - July 9, 1950) first married Artena COOPER (September 5, 1896 - August 3, 1924). John Edward McCLENDON is buried in Oak Hill Baptist Cemetery in Poplarville, MS. He died of cancer. Artena COOPER died as a result of a radiator exploding in the car she was driving as she jumped with an infant from the moving car. The 7 week old infant, Wilford O'Neil, survived. They had four children: James Levert, Ernest Leroy, Ruthalee (a.k.a. "Ruth"), and Wilford O'Neal.

This is an expansion of Artena COOPER's branch: James Levert was born on September 6th 19??. When his father died in 1950 he was listed in the obituary as living in NYC (New York City, NY). Ernest Leroy was born on October 26th 19?? and lived in Synder, Texas in 1950. Ruthalee was born on May 13th, 19?? and married a BROWN. They lived in Japan in 1950 and should be in California now. Wilford O'Neal was born June 15, 1924 and died in the fall (October or November) 1993. Willford O'Neil had a least one daughter Artena F. McCLENDON, P.O. Box 398 , Rio Linda, CA, 95673. Artena's e-mail address is:

Their father was John Edward McCLENDON and his father was "Joe" Joseph P. (for Parker) McCLENDON. We are unsure as to who his father was.
