I am going to start posting documentation on the McClendon family represented, so far, by the test results for M-17 & M-18.
Pedigree for M-17 & M-18:

These pages will be edited for additional content, as we gather the documentation, so check back for updates.
McClendon Y-DNA Project member Georgie Fisher has an "Equity Court Case from Panola County, Texas and Darlington Dist., South Carolina that links James Ashley McClendon to his father Everett, and his grandparents, James and Cecil McLendon."

This transcribed legal document, pertaining to the McClendons of Darlington District, South Carolina, was contributed by McClendon Y-DNA Project member, Georgie Fisher.
From Georgie Fisher: "It is my understanding that, in his book on the McClendons, Mr. Andreas had assigned the wrong Everett as the father of these 4 men. I hope this document will help other McClendon researchers."
[Note: The legal document transcription will be posted in sections, each as a "reply" to the other, due to the large size of the document]:

[Note: Continuation of the document from the previous page]:

That the apportionment thus made was acquired ?? by all parties interested:  that since that time the negroes allotted to Celia McLendon have greatly increased in number, the following named children having been born, viz: Henry, Lucy, Dave, Argus, William, Taphyann, Thursyann, Betsey, Needham, Harry and Francis and perhaps others whose names are unknown to your Orators and Oratrix;  that the said Celia McLendon departed this life in the year of our lord one thousand eight hundred and forty eight when your Orators and Oratrix reasonably expected to receive that proportional shares of her estate, both real and personal.  And your Orators and Oratrix further shew unto your Honors that since the death of the said Celia McLendon ??? the year one thousand eight hundred and fifty seven the said Kineon McLendon died intestate leaving surviving him his widow Sarah who has since intermarried with one William Henry Hatchel and one child, a daughter named Jane: that Spencer Atkinson applied for and procured letters of Administration upon his estate: that previous to his death Kineon McLendon had sold a portion of the land belonging to the estate of Celia McLendon to one Motte who had sold it to one William Reynolds, who now owns it.   The number of acres, miles and boundaries being unknown to your Orator and Oratrix: that since the death of the said Kineon McLendon his Administrator has also sold to the said William Reynolds as the property of the said Kineon two negroes belonging to the estate of the said Celia McLendon named Needham and Henry, and other negroes belonging to the same estate named Caroline, Lucy, Dave, Argus and William, he has, as Administrator of the said Kineon McLendon, sold to Lewis McLendon.   And your Orators further shew unto your Honors that William Henry Hatchel who has intermarried as aforesaid with Sarah the widow of the said Kineon McLendon,has also in possession and claims as his own property two negroes named Tilphyann and Thursann belonging to the estate of the said Celia McLendon. And your Orators and Oratrix further shew unto your Honors that they have frequently since the death of the said Celia McLendon, desired the said Lewis McLendon, Kineon McLendon, (and since his death Spencer Atkinson his administrator) James R. McLendon, Spencer Atkinson and Molsey Atkinson (his wife) to take such steps as were necessary to have the shares of your Orators and Oratrix, in the estate of Celia McLendon set apart to them; and they had well hoped that they would have complied with such request as in conscience and Equity – this ought to have done.  But now, so it is may it please your Honors, the the said Lewis McLendon, Spencer Atkinson (Administrator of Kineon McLendon, James R. McLendon, Spencer Atkinson and Molsey Atkinson, his wife, William Reynolds, William Henry Hatchell and Sarah his wife and Jane McLendon combining and confederating together to and with divers other persons as yet unknown to your Orators and Oratrix (but whose names when discovered, your Orators and Oratrix may may be inserted herein as defendants and parties to your Orators and Oratrix’s suit, with proper and sufficient words to charge them in the ?, in order to oppress injure and defraud your Orators and Oratrix, profess to claim the estate both real and personal left by the said Cecil McLendon at the time of her death as their own; and to support such claim, they have, within a few years past, produced certain deeds which they alledge were freely and voluntarily, executed by the said Celia McLendon in her life time, when she was mentally and physically qualified so to do, by which two negroes named Leet and Curtis and one hundred acres of land are conveyed to Lewis McLendon (who besides the negroes named now has in possession Caroline, Lucy, Dave, Argus and William; three negro slaves named Henry, Caroline and Needham, one hundred and twenty acres of land all the stock hogs, cattle, one sorrel horse and all the kitchen furniture are conveyed to Kineon McLendon; three negro slaves named Candis, Harry and Francis and ten acres of land are conveyed to Spencer Atkinson and Molsey his wife (who also now have in possession two other negroes of Celia McLendon’s estate named Duke and Calvin) and two negro slaves named Dunmore and John are conveyed to James R.

[Note: Continuation of the document from the previous page]:

Whereas your Orators and Oratrix charge the truth to be, that the said Celia McLendon at the time of the alleged execution of the said deeds was by reason of old age, ? with to her causes, producing imbecility, incompetent to contract; that notwithstanding her advanced age, her bodily infirmities and her childishness, her declining years were undue wretched by the unnatural treatment which she received at the hands of her sons.  ? to this Bill of complaint; she was constantly harassed and terrified by the frequent threats of violence made by each against the other, and by all against herself in regard to the property which she possessed; they frequently threatened each other’s lives in her presence and upon several occasions, they were with difficulty restrained from actual violence; and your Orators and Oratrix alledge, that not content with these means of forcing her to gratify their wishes they kept whiskey and other intoxicating drinks in the house where she lived, and by earnest solicitations and other means ? more despicable, they prevailed upon her to drink and to drink to excess; they made it their business to mix the sweetened dr? with whiskey to tempt her and they succeeded too well. For she, who had reached a ripe old age with a character unsullied became in her dotage, through the instrumentality of her own children, an inebriate; that she was, thus, thoroughly under the unholy influence of these confederates and when imbecile by reason of old age and intemperance, she was by means such as your Orators and Oratrix have alleged induced to execute the deeds under which the ? defendants to this your Orators and Oratrix’s  bill of complaint pretend to claim and your Orators and Oratrix further shew unto your Honors and allege that the partition of the estate of Celia McLendon which it is pretended was confirmed by the deed? ? on the ? day of December Anno Domini one thousand eight hundred and forty five was made by Lewis McLendon, who with his gun in his hand, threatening violence to anyone who inter…, divided the negroes into lots and assigned a share to each of his confederates, that to this act of violence the said Celia McLendon did not and by reason of her condition, could not have assented, that her mark (not her signature as she was want to subscribe it) was obtained to the several deeds by undue and improper influence, being forced to execute them by reason of the terror which the unnatural conduct of Lewis McLendon and his confederates excited.   And your Orators and Oratrix further allege that the deed professing to convey to Kineon McLendon one hundred and twenty acres of land, the stock hogs, cattle, horse, kitchen furniture ? and ? the ? day of February one thousand eight hundred and forty six was never legally executed; that at the time of the pretended execution James E Vaughan was the only witness present; that it was not then delivered to the said Kineon and that James R McLendon, the other subscribing witness, and the one who proves ?-due execution, was not there present, nor did the witness Vaughan ever see him ? the same and your Orators and Oratrix allege that after the date of this pretended execution, Celia McLendon declared in the presence of Molsey Atkinson and of Kineon McLendon himself, that if she had ever signed such a deed she did not know it.   And your Orators and Oratrix further allege that the consideration in the said several deeds set forth, to wit: that each of the grantees was bound to contribute to the comfortable support and maintaince of Celia McLendon during her natural life, was a deceit practiced upon her, and if such a bond ever was given it was never regarded; she was not supported or cared for by them or any of them;  she lived at the old homestead with Kineon McLendon where neglected and uncared for, she died.
