Gordon Labon McClendon was born about 1783 in South Carolina and died 1 January, 1853 in Dent Co. MO. He married 1811 in Jackson Co. GA., to Sarah Elizabeth (York?)
Gordon was in Perry Co. AL., moved to Itawamba Co. MS. after 1840 and before November 1842 before moving to MO. It is believed that Gordon was either the father or perhaps the Uncle of Mark Allen McClendon. The families lived near each other and when one family moved the other followed. They are somehow related, can you a McClendon/McLendon researcher share information on this family?
