Re: Theofolus Claspell - Gibson Co., IN
I have found a little more since posting. I don't have all my info handy as we are still unpacking from a cross country move.
Lemuel Claspell b. abt 1852 in Kentucky
married Julia Bird (b. abt 1858 Indiana) on May 21, 1874 in Gibson County, Indiana
They had three children (I am aware of)
1.) Pearl Claspell b. abt Feb. 1875 Indiana
2.) Allen Claspell b. abt 1877Indiana
3.) John Claspell b. abt 1879Indiana
Pearl Claspell married first James Morrison (b. April 1869, Illinois, d. abt 1904) on September, 26 1895 in Gibson County, Indiana
They had four children I am aware of:
1.) Clyde Claspell Morrison b. June 2, 1894, June 7, 1896, or June 5, 1897 (three separate sources-draft, marriage licence, etc.)
2.) Georgetta Morrison b. August 4, 1899, Illinois
3.) Water James Morrison b. April 7, 1900 (also gave 1899 as birth year) married Lucille Herron b Jan. 26, 1920 d. April 23, 1953 They lived in the Washington, D.C. area. She was from Aiken, SC. Walter d. Sept. 10, 1969 in DC.
4.) Julius D(onald?) Morrison b. July 14, 1902 in Illinois & d. Dec. 1977 in DC.
It appears that Pearl Claspell Morrison moved around a bit- I have located her in Princeton, Indiana, Mount Vernon, Illinois, Evansville, Illinois and Chicago.
On Pearl Claspell may have married a Michael Hays whom I have no further info on. She and Walter may have spent some time in the Norfolk, VA area around WWI.
Thanks for any help you may be able to give me.
