John Clements Line
I am researching my John Clements line b c1783 VA m Sarah (Clement?) b
c1811 KY. John & family 1st appears in 1850 census, Washington Co,
Harmony TWP, MO. Children: Jacob b IL c1826/31, Vianah b c1833 IL,
George b c1837 IL, Mallicy (Melissa) b c1840 IL, Alexander b c1841 MO,
& Melvina b c1843 Ark. (Note the age difference in John & Sarah---28
Next I find Jacob (my G-Grandfather) in Jackson Co, IL
(Elkville/Desoto Area) m to Margaret Phares (Farris) 10/10/1851)b1831
IL. Jacob then found Jackson Co, IL 1865 m to Nancy M Stevens Summers
a civil war widow with 2 children of George W Summers. (George W
Clements was b 1861 to Jacob & Margaret, when she seems to dissappear--
-perhaps from childbirth??)
The family remains in Jackson Co, IL until about 1878/79 when they
move to Black, Reynolds Co, MO. Later Jacob settles in western Iron
Co, MO where he remains until his d 6/13/1907.
Children of Jacob & Margaret:
Minerva b 1849 Jackson Co, IL, Payretta/Phyretta b 1854 Jackson Co, IL
Mary S (Susie) b 1858 Jackson Co, IL & Geo W b 1861 Jackson Co, IL.
Children of Jacob & Nancy:
Delilah Melvina b 1868 IL, M Florence b 11871 IL, Isaac b 9/23/1874
IL, Theodore b 1876 IL, & Jacob Jr aka Jake E b 1/20/1880 MO.
