Florence Melissa Clendenning
My G Grandmother was Florence Melissa Clendenning born 16 Apr 1862 in Fontana, Miami Co KS and died 9 Apr 1940 in Rich Hill MO. She married James Coombs Robbins 5 Oct 1881. He was born 27 Apr 1855 in Jerseyville IL and died 29 Nov 1927 in Rich Hill MO.
Florence's parents were John Clendenning (Clendenine) and Cassandra Tracy. John was born in 1822 in Ireland, immigrated to Canada and then to the U.S. He married Cassandra Tracy born 1824 KY daughter of John Tracy and Sarah Foree (Fore, Ford). In 1870 John and family were in Miami Co KS. Cassandra and John divorced sometime after 1872 and he sued for custody of the minor children and apparently won.
This is all supposition and unproven, but I believe John Clendennings mother was Ann (possibly McCrackin) born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada and then the U.S. in the early to mid 1830's with her sons Robert and John and daughters Alice and Elizabeth and possibly Mary Ann. I then believe that Ann remarried Samuel Adamson (born 1785 NC and died 1858 IN) sometime after 1843 and lived most of the remainder of her life in Miami Co IN. Samuel Adamson had many children from a first marriage to Naomi Lamb.
If anyone has any information or clarification on this line, I would love to hear from you. email@example.com
