From Mary Rebecca Sheppard (cousin) age 45 11/1850 Census Shoemaker age 53, 8/1860 Census Merchant age 63, 1870 Census Shoemaker
Gooch. Co. Death Records, Va. Vital Stats., 1878, line 5: "Lindsey Clarke, white, male, died 30 Nov. 1878 of consumption at 76 years.Parents: Lindsay and Lucy Clarke; Occupation farmer; Consort; Jovilla Clarke Reported by Doram Clarke, son". Chlo Dorma, who in 1880 Census was described as 39 years of age, farmer, "cannot read/write", probably did not understand meaning of word "consort" and placed in that space the name of his single sister, Jovella, who lived in household with her father and Chlo Dorma and who remained, apparently, as housekeeper for Chlo Dorma after death of their father. ========================================
