Her name was ELIZABETH BRACKNEY, and she married JOSEPH LILES, a grandson of her third husband. MARGARET'S descendants are counted in the hundreds now living in Ohio, Michigan and New York State for the most part.

3. JANE MCCLINTIC DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM I AND NANCY SHANKLIN MCCLINTIC. JANE marrid THOMAS MILHOLLEN. She died before 1801. According to her father's will, she had several children, but no record is left of any of them except one, THOMAS MILHOLLEN, who built the grist mill on Cedar Creek in 1796, of which traces remain today. He was listed among the Virginia Militia on Jackson's River in 1783, but he owned no property. About the only record left of the man is the several lawsuits in which he was involved. In April 1799, he had a lawsuit with one Mr. Gamble over a debt incurred in 1795 and another with Balsoc King in 1805. In 1806, the Commonwealth brought suit against him, just before he and his daughter Sarah and family left for Kentucky. His daughter married JEREMIAH SIMMS in 1800. No further record of this family.

4. NANCY MCCLINTIC DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM I AND NANCY SHANKLIN MCCLINTIC. NANCY married PATRICK MILHOLLEN a brother of the above THOMAS MILHOLLEN. That is all we have on NANCY.

They lived in Bath County, Virginia until about 1800. ROBERT owned a farm along Jackson's River, 3 or 4 miles south of his father's home. It was here that most of his children were born. He sold his farm to the widow of his brother WILLIAM MCCLINTIC II (ALICE MANN MCCLINTIC) and moved over to Greenbrier County, West Virginia (now) and settled on Culverson's Creek, near Williamsburg. Here he grew up with the community and was known as "ROBIN" OR "ROBIN OF BATH".
