The widow, Jennett Powell, compromised with the children as to the property. Nathaniel Allen and Robert Royston intermarried with two of the granddaughters of Jennett, and were living in Georgia.

"I put this cover on between 7 and 8 o'clock on Thursday morning, September 26, 1839, and a very cold morning it was. The Clay Convention is in session in Staunton at this time and is the second day of its meeting. A. R. St. Clair, aged 39 years, against the 22d of October next. Lord! Whose eye will this meet when I am in eternity".)
