The History of Butler County Pennsylvania - 1883, chapter XLVI -- Clay Township, page 140 has this to say about the McClungs of Butler County:
"The MCCLUNGS, of Butler County, are of Scotch ancestry and their forefathers were among the earliest settlers of Maryland. Charles MCCLUNG (the father of Charles MCCLUNG, of Clay Township) was born in Maryland March 15, 1781. When a small boy, his parents removed to the vicinity of Greensburg, Westmoreland County, Penn., where he grew to manhood and learned the trade of making spinning wheels, etc. a business which he followed for many years, sometimes employing three or four assistants. In 1803, he became a resident of what is now Fairview Township, Butler County, and soon after he married Miss Jane ROBINSON, of Westmoreland. She died in October 1842. In 1854, he located in Concord Township, just west of the hamlet of Buena Vista. He finally became a resident of the village of Sunbury, and died there December 24, 1866. He was the father of seven sons and five daughters. Of the sons, six are living, viz,: Robert R., John, Charles, David, Samuel and James. William, the other son, died in 1879."
