Got rattled because of cut-offs.James and Mary's daughters were the Mary I mentioned who wed WmWms, Nancy and Catherine. We have conflicting evidence on the girls.One report says Susan'nal married Daniel Simms, another says Thomas Wright.Catherine married Elijah Abbot.We have Nancy married to Joseph Ashby. James Cloe (Eliz) was born Oct. 17, 1763 in St. Andrews Parish, St. Mary's Co.,Md. and died 1806 in Stafford. The entire Cloe family moved to Bourbon Co,, Ky in 1816.Eliz was on tax rolls in 1815, no one in 1816 and only Alexander, who returned, in 1817.About the name.There are so many spellings not because of illiteracy but because of lack of opportunity for education.We wondered why they changed the name when they went to Kentuck.Actually they changed it back to the original.I have hundreds of Cloes, Clows, Cloughs, Cluffs, etc. in Eng. Scotland,Netherlands (DeCloe) etc.Alex changed the name back to Cloe when he returned to Va.Our male line goes direct from James, James, Alexander, William Shepherd (grandfather)who lived next door to my husband and died in 1919 (B1832), Richard Arthur (husband's father), Hugh Harvey, David Ashton and James Harvey (sons), James H arvey, Jr and Jon Howard (grandsons. More later.
