Re: George and Cary Clewett, WI
My email address is [email protected]'d be happy to see the photo but it's even more important to know that there was a George Clewett still in Wisconsin in 1880.
The connection on my side:I have a great-great-grandmother nee Amanda Stone who married Benjamin Howd in Camden, Oneida Co., N.Y. circa 1825.I'm tracing her parentage.I have developed what I hope is an outline of her immediate family and it includes two brothers who moved to Wisconsin:Julius Stone and Joel Dunbar Stone.Both of these men and a third brother (Harmon Stone) lived in Stafford Twp., Genesee Co., N.Y. at some point. Julius moved to Wisconsin after 1843 but before 1850. Joel Stone was in Genesee County in 1850.A Joel Stone is shown in one Wisconsin 1855 census index entry but I have not yet found him in 1860 or 1870.He died in 1878 in Madison, Wi. and I have his death certificate.The connection to the Clewetts is that Caroline Stone who married George Clewett is in the right time and place to be one of Joel's two daughters (Caroline and Laura per the 1850 census). If I could find this couple in the 1880 census I can probably determine the accuracy of that from age and birthstate. I had thought Caroline died or divorced George per the Mormon records but there's no direct proof that there were two George's - it just seemed an unusual name to find twice ("George Hugo"...).
I did find Ebenezer Cluitt in the 1860 census with George as a child (Middleton, Dane, Wi.) and Ebenezer is in the same township in 1870 but George is gone.
What was the Stone connection suggested in your message?
Re pictures: I have one picture taken in Batavia, N.Y. that I suspect is one of the two Stone daughters.It would be pretty amazing if that picture and yours were both Caroline Stone./ Tom
