History of Name, Tartans, Coat of Arms, etc. 4-20-07

See: Heraldry (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and Custom Crests, Logos, and Coats of Arms Design Servicesso that makes a little more sense. If you have a McClendon "Coats of Arms," etc. to post at this web site, please send it to me at It should not be copyrighted. Perhaps we have an artist out there?

Blazon of Arms: Vert; a lion rampant or; on a chief argent; a dexter hand erect, couped at the wrist gules.
Crest: A boar pass. ppr; langued gules armed and hoofed or.
Motto (and Translation): Sola salus servire Deo or Salvation only in serving God.

Source: The Historical Research Center - For names and more

"Coat of Arms" is supposed to be in a book called: Burke's Encyclopedia of Heraldry probably at a public library and this book is considered one of the best sources..

Here is one example, again I don't know how accurate it is.

Leon Frank McCLENDON's web page (Washington Parish, LA) June 21, 2007

Henry Lester McCLENDON (born: March 31, 1882 - April 1966, death date is from SSDI)

NOTE: the SSDI lists he birth date as March 30, 1882 , not March 31, 1882 as on the SS-5 Form.

Henry Lester McCLENDON's parents were John (?) McCLENDON and Betsy JENKINS. Henry was white and worked at the Great Southern Lumber Co. and he was paid semi-monthly. He was widowed. His birth date was March 31, 1882 and he was born in Bailey (misspelled - Baley), Tangipahoa Parish, LA. (Tangipahoa Parish is right next to Washington Parish)

On Oct. 20, 1940 he was 59 years old when he filled out the SS-5 form, and he lived in Bridge City, (?? Rte. 1 ??), Westwego, LA. (This last address is a little confusing since Bridge City and Westwego are cities in Jefferson Parish, LA). You could probably go to the News Orleans, LA Public Library and look him up in an old "City Directory" (a.k.a., phone book).

It appears that he signed his name with an "x" and that two witnessed also signed the form.

See: Louisiana 1895 Map at URL: and note that Jefferson Parish is the pink area just below Lake Pontchartrain.

Henry Lester McCLENDON (March 31, 1882 - April 1966) was a brother of L. F. or Leon "Lonnie " Frank McCLENDON (March 3, 1887 - December 9, 1919) June 21, 2007

If you want photocopy of any of your people's SS-5 forms (Application for Social Security Number / Card), just go to RootsWeb's "advanced search" Search the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) and type in their Social Security Number (or use the advanced search feature to find their Social Security Number), then click on the SS-5 Letter link and a letter will be generated for you to send off for a copy. Use one form per person. You may submit more than one request at a time, but don't overwhelmed them.

When you receive the photocopy (in 8 - 10 weeks or longer), it will look like something like this: Henry Lester McClendon's. Sometimes, however, you'll receive other documents related to request for benefits, etc. instead of the SS-5 form.

This Betsy McClendon (abt. 1891 - Oct. 11, 1929) may have been a sister?

Name: Betsy McClendon
Age: 38 years
Death Date: 11 Oct 1929
Parish: E. Feliciana
Volume: 31
Certificate: 12631
