ChartsAncestry of David Kipp Melat
     Alexander McCandless was born circa 1750.3 He was the son of Alexander McCandless and Elizabeth Ross.2 He married Jane Wilson on 26 January 1771.4,5 He married Mary Sutton, daughter of William Sutton.6,1 He died on 24 January 1817 in Moon Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.1,3 He was buried in Montours Presbyterian Church cemetery, Robinson Township, Allegheny County.3
     Alexander McCandless was known as Alexander McCandless Jr.
     According to family lore, Alexander and Jenny were "married in Scotland, bedded in Ireland, and sailed [for America] the following day from Belfast suggesting that Alexander and Jane immigrated to America in 1771.7,8
     Alexander McCandless served in the Washington County, Pennsylvania militia during the American Revolution. In response to the failed expedition led by Colonel William Crawford against the Sandusky Indian tribes in Wyandot County, Ohio, Alexander and his brother William join Captain William Fife's Company, Second Battalion, Washington County militia on 14 June 1782 to address the Indian threat.9,10
     Alexander McCandless Jr. and Alexander McCandless Sr. purchased 400 acres on the waters of Montours Run in Washington County, Pennsylvania, on 1 May 1779 from Jeremiah Meeks of Yohogania County, Virginia for 900 pounds, 7 shillings, 6 pence. The deed was witnessed by Alexander McCandless Jr., son and brother to the two Alexanders. The property was sold by the McCandlesses on 16 May 1780 to Joseph Smith. William McCandless again witnessed the event. Alexander McCandless Jr.'s wife Jenneh McCandless also signed the deed with her mark. The area were this property was located was claimed by both Virginia and Pennsylvania. The dispute was settled in 1781.11
     On 26 May 1781 Alexander McCandless Jr. and William McCandless provided an accounting of wheat, corn, and rye from the estate of their father Alexander McCandless Sr. They stated before a Justice of the Peace of Yohogania County, Virginia, that the estate produced 7 1/4 gallons of whiskey at 1 bushel of rye per gallon, 2 bushels of wheat, and 1/2 bushel of corn. Alexander, Jr. and William only received 1/1 bushel of corn.12
     Alexander McCandless was taxed for his farm and livestock in Washington County, Pennsylvania, between 1782 and 1789. He is typcially taxed for between 300 and 400 acres and three or four horses and cows. In 1787, he was also taxed for one servant. In 1789, the boundary for Allegheny County is modified and made permanent. The new boundary leaves Alexander's mother's farm in Washington County while his farm and his brother William's farm are now totally within Allegheny County. In 1791, Alexander and William are taxed in Moon Township, Allegheny County.13 He applied for a land warrant for his plantation of 400 acres in Robinson Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, on 6 March 1786. The farm, called "Bony Clabber" which is Scotish Gaelic for "curdled milk," is near Montour Creek, adjacent to George Elliott's tract "Litigation." Bony Clabber was surveyed on 3 May 1786 and patented (or first land deed issued) on 24 September 1787. Today, the land is within the bounds of Findlay Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.13
     Alexander McCandless Jr. and William McCandless were signators to a "religious agreement" along with 84 other neighbors during religious revival thanking God for their good fortune. A Janet McCandless was also among the signators.9 He and William McCandless signed a petition requesting a full time Presbyterian minister. The petition was then sent to the Presbytery of Redstone. Among the other signatures on the petition were Henry McBride, Samuel Jeffrey, William Turner, Hugh McCandless, and George Elliot. William McCandless signed on behalf of the neighboring Raccoon congreation near Beelor's Fort. Reverand Joseph Patterson answered the call and came to establish the Montours Church where he served until 1799 before going to Raccoon Church in Candor, Washington County on 9 April 1789.14
