Notes for 1023 Samuel Cluff:
The Genealogy of the Descendants of JOHN CLOUGH of Salisbury, Massachusetts, Published by THE JOHN CLOUGH GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY, Inc.. 1952. Eva Clough Spear, Editor, pg 337-338:
1023--SAMUEL JR. (Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, Samuel. John), Born probably at Alfred, Maine about 1777/8; married Mary (Polly) Seavey of Limerick, daughter of John and Betsey ( ______ ) Seavey, on September 30, 1798 (Alfred Town record); died after 1825. She died October 27, 1825 of "typhus" (Cong'l Church record).
Samuel Jr. Cluff was a farmer in Alfred where he owned a small house and barn across the road from his father's farm, on land which at one time was in Lyman until the line between the two towns was established as it is today. The remains of the stoned-up cellar can be seen on the camp road "running northeast" as the 1825 deeds say, to the "pond" (Bunganut) on property now (1952) owned by Adelbert M. Jakeman of Ocean Park, Maine, poet and editor. Old stone walls and piles of rocks left from clearing the fields are witnesses to the struggle of our ancestors against the wilderness. No one living can remember Samuel Junior's house.
In l825 his wife, Polly and daughter, Sally died of fever. Samuel was unable to pay for his property and disappeared from Alfred tax records. Where he spent his last days is not known, nor when he died. The last recorded deed in his name says "of Hollis."
Previously this Samuel had been prominent in town affairs, serving as surveyor of highways 1805-06-07; fence viewer 1807; hogreve 1813; and this interesting bit which shows that Sam was on hand about the first year he was eligible to vote:
April 1, 1799, Alfred Town Meeting. "The collecting of the money was vendue in the District and Paul Webber bid it off for one cent, and he was chosen constable and sworn, and the one cent paid down by Samuel Cluff Jr., Amos Grandy and Nathaniel Conant in acknowledge themselves bondsmen for his
collecting of the money of the District."
