Hi Eric!

Sorry it took so long for me to reply regarding my Clover connection. Here are the resources that I have:

"The first improvements made where Corsica now stands was by John Scott, who moved from Lycoming county in 1802. He afterward married a daughter of Paul Clover, one of the pioneers of Clearfield county."
History of Jefferson County, Pennsylvania, by Kate M. Scott

Also, Kate Scott's book lists the Honorable Peter Clover as the eldest son of Paul Clover, one of the first settlers in Clearfield county. Peter married Martha Jones, the daughter of Peter Jones and Rebecca Scott, Samuel Scott's sister. The children that I have been able to identify seem to match what I read below:

"James Scott father of Mrs. Alexander Guffy, had children: Samuel, John, Andrew who moved to Ohio in 1791, Rebecca who married Peter Jones and Eliza who married James Boon. Of this family, Peter and Rebecca (Scott) Jones had children: John, Samuel, Isaac, Matthew, Matilda and Sarah, of whom Isaac Jones married Jane Wilson and had Wilson, Samuel Scott, Joseph B., John J., Rueben J., Andrew, Matilda and Margaret. Mattie Jones, daughter of Peter, married Peter Clive and had four children: Philip, Hiram, Henry and Rebecca."
Genealogical & Biographical Annals of Northumberland County, by JL Floyd, Publ. 1911

For some reason, CLOVER has been transcribed as CLIVE above, but there is ample evidence to suggest that the writter is mistaken.
