- (Written in July and Aug. 1949 by Junius Hunter Arbuckle): Grandma Cavendish was a good business woman. With the aid of her two sons, she accumulated considerable land on both sides of Jackson's River in the southern part of what is now known as Bath Co. After she became a widow again, her grand-daughter Bettie McClintic came and lived with her. She made and recorded her will in 1838, 20 years before her death. Unfortunately, her son Moses died before she did. In her will she gave both her sons and all her grandchildren property and named her son William II executor. After her death in 1858, some of the in-laws of her son Moses' children brought suit against the estate for a new accounting, but failed to change any part of it. (See her will, Bath Co., W.B. #6, p. 176 and supplement of lawsuit.) She lived to be 95 years of age.
(Morton's "History of Alleghany Co." p. 209-210): Alice, born 1762, married William McClintic, who died 1786. She afterward married William Hunter Cavendish, an Englishman, who was the first clerk of Greenbrier and later the first clerk of Kanawha. He was a delegate from Greenbrier almost continuously from 1790 to 1804. A son was Andrew, a lawyer of Fayette County. A great grandson is R.M. Cavendish, a lawyer of Sutton, WVA.*
