You are taking a random walk through our online cemetery.

Death: Sep. 4, 1935
Bulloch County

The son of Confederate veteran William Henry McClelland and Hattie Cone McClelland, William Madison McClelland was born April 4, 1869 in Bulloch County, Georgia. An only son, he had five sisters. Through the Cone branch of the family, he was descended from Conn of the Hundred Battles, the first high king of Ireland.

A farmer, William married Manie Veranda Glisson McClelland on December 24, 1890 in Bulloch County, and they had ten children, one of whom (Gertrude) did not live past infancy: Gertrude McClelland, Pernell McClelland, Sr., Nevada McClelland Bell, Willie Clyde McClelland Moore, William Leon McClelland, Rufus McClelland, Maybelle McClelland Burnsed, Edna McClelland Floyd, Grace McClelland Clark, and Harry McClelland. He died at age 66 on September 4, 1935 in Bulloch County. He is buried at Old Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery, near Ivanhoe (Briar Patch), Bulloch County. His grave stone was added decades after his death. His ancestry was Scots-Irish. His granddaughter, Kathleen Bell Neely, was born on his birthday.

Thanks so much to his daughter Nevada McClelland Bell for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. Thanks to Robert Thompson for locating William's death certificate, Georgia Death Certificate (Bulloch County) #21726.
