Thanks for responding to my message. I descend from William E. Claus’ uncle George Clouse. George’s brother William married Catherine Kocher. They had William E. I like to fill in ALL the branches!!
I would love to have dates and places for your branch of the Clouse/Claus family.
Thanks also for clearing up the Veronica/Hazel puzzle.
From William E. Claus’ obituary, he had several more children with Hazel. The census confirms this too.
