Page 4 of the application of Clara (Karns) Pendley for membership in the DAR. This application was submitted in July 1982 and approved 7 Oct 1982. She was admitted on the basis of her descendance from Peter Marrikle/Maricle Sr., born about 1735, probably in Pennsylvania, and died in Colerain Twp., Bedford Co., Pa. between Dec 1780 and Nov 1781. His wife's name was Mary and they were married about 1750-1760. Her birthplace is unknown; she died in Bedford Co., Pa. by 1793. Clara was a fifth generation descendant. The lineage is this: Clara Karns < Harry < Alva < Salome Mearkle < George Mearkle < Henry Markle < Peter Marrikle/Maricle Sr. Clara's eligibility for membership was based on the fact that Peter Marrikle/Maricle Sr signed the Oath of Allegiance in Bedford Co., Pa. on 30 July 1777. His son Peter served as a Private in Captain Peter Hainey's Company, 1st Battalion, Bedford County Militia.
