    Notes 
    • James L. McLemore, III writes that "Charles received the second third of his father Burwell's plantation. Charles married Lucy ROWE, daughter of John ROWE...He died just over twenty years later, and his will dated July 29, 1818, was admitted to probate in Sussex County on October 15, 1818 (Sussex Will Book H, p. 527). In it he named five children: Richard McLemore, who married Mildred A. BRITT....and who owned (and mortgaged) land in Greensville County; William S. McLemore, who sold his share in his father's estate in 1826 (Sussex Deed Book P, p. 23), and disappears from the records (presumably moving away); Mary Ann McLemore, who married Jesse SLEDGE...; Martha McLemore who married James DUNN of Greensville County...her brother William S. acting as security on their bond...and Frances L. "Fanny" McLemore, who was married to Thomas NEWTON... Charles' widow Lucy was left all property for her lifetime with which to raise and educate the children until the youngest turned 21. She herself died intestate in about 1838 (Southampton Order Book 18, p. 459)."

      James L. McLemore suspected, due to Charles's baptism information not being recorded in the Albermarle Parish Register, that Charles was one of the younger sons of Burwell and Amy, born in the late 1760's or early 1770's.

      However, Jim White (jim4@whitesnet.net) emailed that "Charles McLemore was born before 1760, administered his father's estate - He married twice, 1st, Hardy Sammons December 30, 1783 - He had several children by her.  He did marry as his 2nd wife, Lucy Rowe, October 16, 1797."

    • Burwell Maclemore and his wife, Amy, had a large family: eleven children in all have been identified, but only two had their births recorded in the Albermarle Parish Register. The first was Sally, born June 2, 1754, and baptized August 25, 1754. Sponsors or godparents included her aunt and uncle, Robert and Lydia Magee, as well as a Gilliam. A second daughter "Molly" (Mary) was shown in the Register as being born July 24, and baptized September 14, 1760. There was a sufficient interval in between these two for the birth of at least one other child (probably Howell), and the others followed along thereafter: John, Lucy, Lydia, Ann or Anna, Burwell Jr., Gilliam, Charles and James, probably in something close to that order, with their births running right up nearly to the outbreak of the American Revolution, when Burwell would have been 55, and Amy in her early to mid 40's. Neither his first born daughter Sally nor his wife is mentioned in his will, which was dated September 21, 1793, and admitted to probate October 4, 1798. (B. F. McLemore His Ancestors and Descendants, James L. McLemore III (c. 1991) pp. 81-82).
