Re: 1870 census - Highgate, Franklin County, Vermont
Dear Bill :
These 1850 CLOUGHs in Franklin County NY are indeed the Andrew Nelson CLOW family.He was apparently called Nelson as an adult.
Samantha was in fact my gg-Grandmother Loretta CLOW who is yet another victim of the census disinformation syndrome.
Loretta CLOW was married to Ephraim Lyman SMITH about 1858 in Franklin County NY.
It has occured to me that the CLOW family in Highgate VT may have wandered into Quebec's Eastern Townships after 1860, Highgate being practically right on the Canada-U.S. border.
So, I will try looking for them there.
Thank you very much for taking the time and the trouble to look up these wanderings CLOWs.
Regards, Tom Brown
