A tidbit on a fifth-great grandfather, Henry Pendleton. (Clayton Torrence, Winston of Virginia and Allied Families (Richmond, Virginia: Whittet & Shepperson, 1927), p. 203-205)
Henry Pendleton (son of John and Sarah Madison Pendleton), born December 4, 1762. During early manhood he settled in Louisa County and there married…Alcey Ann Winston…daughter of John and Alice Bickerton Winston, of Hanover County. …
He was a member of the Hanover County Militia during the latter part of the Revolutionary War, for his name is signed to a petition dated May 24, 1782, of officers and privates against a draft law for raising recruits for Continental Army.
… Henry Pendleton’s first place of residence in Louisa County was on Southanna River near North East Creek. In 1818 and 1819 he sold this property and moved to “Cuckoo” (near the centre of the county), which he had purchased from the estate of William [Overton] Callis, deceased. At “Cuckoo” he built the old mansion house (which is still standing and is occupied by his descendants).
I have a photo of the house from about 100 years ago – I’ll try to make a point of uploading it soon.
