Ancestors of Brandon Oliver Clevenger

      86. Massey Clymer467, born May 14, 1795 in Allegany, Md467; died Unknown. He was the son of 172. Charles Fountain Clymer and 173. Nancy Needles. He married 87. Elizith Gunder July 25, 1816 in Fairfield County, Ohio467.

      87. Elizith Gunder468,469, born in Scotland469; died Unknown.

  Notes for Elizith Gunder:
A note on the Smothers Family Tree from Mary Smothers Wills indicates she died at age 112. She is identified as Elizith Clymer, Great Grandmother of Almon H. Knesel.

On that same document there is a note in a different color ink which says that Elizith married George Clymer "signer of decoration of indefendince 27 signer."

There was, in fact, a George Clymer who signed the Declaration of Independence. He was married to Elizabeth Meredith and they had nine children, including one named Elizabeth. Unfortunately, that Elizabeth Clymer died young leaving no issue. George Clymer, The Signer, died on January 23, 1813, which means that he could not have been the father of Elizith Clymer, Almon' Grandmother, as she was born much later, May 8, 1837. George Clymer, The Signer, did have two sons, one of whom was named George Clymer as well. That second George Clymer married Mary Gratiot O'Brien, and there is no indication that he ever married anyone named Elizith or Elizabeth.

In the published genealogy of George Clymer, The Signer, there does not seem to be any correspondence with the Smothers Family Tree, as described by Mary Smothers Wills. Unfortunately, one must conclude that there is not a direct lineal relationship in our family with George Clymer, The Signer. There may be an indirect relationship, but even that has not become clear. Genealogy of George Clymer, The Signer, is well detailed in the book; "Samuel Carpenter and His Descendants." It is available electronically at Copies of the relevant pages are available in Larry Clevenger's files.

However, there is a World Family Tree available on the internet which indicates that Elizabeth Clymer married William Smothers. in that tree, her mother was Elizabeth Gunder, married to Massey Clymer. Elizabeth and Massey had several children, in addition to Elizabeth. One of those was named Charles and would have been an older brother of Elizabeth, just as identified by Mary Smothers Wills. In addition, one of their sons, Peter Clymer, married, as his second wife, his cousin Sarah Clymer. That would have made Sarah a sister-in-law of Elizabeth. Mary Smothers Wills had identified her as a sister. Overall, the correspondence seems fairly good and this World Family Tree 171001 has been used to define the family relationships prior to Almon's Grandmother Elizith Clymer.
