Under any of the following spellings,Clemon; Clemont; Clemons; Clemmons; Clemance; Clemmens, seeking information on an Eve Clements of Augusta County, Virginia, mid to late 1700s.Would like to verify who her father was (Kasper or Christian?) and anything else about the family that anyone might have, such as where they originated and when they came to Virginia.
What I have currently is from a book published about 1939:
Kasper Clements, son of Christian and Catherine Clements, of east Augusta County, Virginia, inherited an estate there from his father (February 13th, 1780).This must have been in the Koiners Store community.On the 19th of August 1778, he was recommended as ensign, but refused to serve in Captain Robert Kenny's Company (October 22nd, 1778).Was recommended as First Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War, serving under T. Rankin (May 18th, 1779).He assisted in building the log church structure at Koiners Store, at the location now marked by Trinity Lutheran Church.About the year 1794 a small group of Lutherans was organized at this location, and four of the number, Kasper Koiner, Nicholas Bush, Kasper Clements and Jacob Barger, agreed to erect a log building in which the little congregation might worship, each man to prepare and assemble upon the lot enough logs, properly hewed, to erect one wall, respectively.
Eve, a daughter of the subject of this record, married Philip Barger, son of Philip Barger, who, as a pioneer, went to Montgomery County, Virginia, in 1755, to improve property at New River, preparatory to moving his family there.He was slain in the Indian attack on the Draper's Meadows settlement, now the site of the town of Blacksburg, in July 1755, The name Clements then, as now, was in several forms, as: Clemon; Clemont; Clemons; Clemmons; Clemance; Clemmens, etc.
does anyone have any information that either confirms or contradicts any of the above?
