Finally found Fronnie's parents tonight in 1870 and 1880, but can't find any of them any earlier or any later.
Her father was Thomas J. Clouse, b. abt. 1836, and mother was Sarah Caroline Unknown, b. abt. 1839.She had siblings Benjamin, William, Alice, Ivry/Ivory, Jason, John, Franklin, and Mary.They were in DeKalb Co., TN in 1870 and 1880.All were born in TN, although William may have been born in Missouri.They are probably related to the Clouse's of White Co., TN, but I can't find the link yet.
I know that Fronnie reported herself born in MO in later years, but intially she reported her place of birth as TN.The 1870 and 1880 records both show her born in TN so this is what I believe is true.
Have searched around to see if I could find a marriage record to show what Sarah Caroline's maiden name is, but afraid I don't find anything yet.Will keep searching.There was one record of a Sarah Gilbert who married a Thomas Clouse about 1867, but not enough info to convince me yet that it's the same person as Fronnie's mother.
More as I find it.Hope you and William are doing well.Send more pictures!Send me info on William's ancestors!
