Some years thereafter, he married a Miss Tinsley, of Madison Co., Va., by whom he had thirteen children-eight boys and five girls. He continued to reside in Amherst until his death, which occurred about the time of the Revolution. He was buried in the old Pendleton burying ground near the Tobacco Row, on the farm now owned by - Ambler.

Henry Pendleton, (Philip, Philip), whom we place is a son of born 1724 and died in 1818. He was living in Spotsylvania Co as early as 1741. On Dec 6,1743 as Henry Pendleton Gent. He was commissioned as Lieutenant of Foot under Captain Edmund Waller his brother-in-law. His history of the Rise and Progress of the Baptists in Virginia says that Henry Pendleton SR father of the preacher, was himself a preacher in the another sense. He preaches by a godly and pious conversation. He is now (1810) a venerable old man of about four score years of age per Henry Pendleton JR. About 1791 he was ordained to the care of the Mine Run Church, nine miles west of Spotsylvania Court House. Henry Pendleton JR. was the first preach of this church. In the 1810, his brother Philip Pendleton was the pastor, Henry SR married about 1743 Martha Curtis, daughter of Rice Curtis.

Then this record that I found must be his. Janet
