Author and genealogist Greg Clendenin will be signing and selling his historical non-fiction novel “The Clendenin Massacre” at the Greenbrier Historical Society’s North House on Saturday July 13th from 11am to 3pm. The Clendenin family played a role in settling the Greenbrier and Kanawha valleys in the 18th century. On July 15, 1763, Archibald Clendenin Jr. was killed by Shawnee Chief Cornstalk, as were two of the Clendenin children. Others, including Ann Clendenin, were taken captive.
The author, a native of Charleston, is a descendent of Archibald Clendenin Sr. and the six-time great-grandson of Charles Clendenin, for whom the capital of West Virginia is named.
