This William Clingan was the father to a Charles M. Clingan b. 1820 and who was a physician 1 840-1844. I do not know how this Clingan line links to my own.

He appears in DAR record No. 12185

!BIRTH: 13 Feb 1792 from baptismal records of Faggs Manor Church, Chester, co PA. This probably was 13 Feb 1793 since his tombstone records his birth to be 22 Dec 1792.

!MARRIAGE: Married Sarah Water Dewees. This info from a DAR record 12185

!DEATH: 27 Oct 1825, E. Fallowfield, Chester, PA. The source of his death is from various obituar ies in local newspapers and also from probate records and his own tombstone which records hi s death to be Oct 27, 1825 and his birth to be 22 Dec 1792. He is buried in Faggs Manor C emetery, Chester, PA in Lot No. 126-E

!NOTE: There are two graves in Faggs Manor of a young man and girl who I believe to be the childr en of William Clingan Jr. and his wife Sarah W. Clingan. The graves read: "Clingan, Sara Ja ne, dau. of William and Sarah H. Clingan, d. Aug 21, 1822 age 6 years, Lot 123-B." and "Cling an, Thomas d. April 12, 1850 age 26 years, Lot No. 126-D". Newspaper articles from "Villag e Record' seem to bear this out. one abstract dated April 23, 1850 is a death notice in Coch ranville, on the 12th of April that Thomas J. Clingan, aged 26 years had died. Another abstr act from that newspaper dated 28 Aug 1822 says "death notice on the 21st inst. at Laurel Forg e, Ann Jane, daughter of william Clingan, Jun. in her eighth year." I bet the newspaper mad e an error in that her name was really Sarah Ann Jane or just Sarah Jane and she was reall y 6 years old and not 8. The date of death is the same as the burial record so it no doubt t he same little girl.
