Diane and Candance,
I can help you both. Robert Beach Clow was born in CT. or NY. He was baptized 02 Aug 1772 in 1st and 2nd Presbyterian Church, NYC. He was the son of James Fitzjames and Sarah (Beach) Clow. Sarah was the daughter of Ebenezer Beach and Mehitable (Gibson) Beach of Stratford, CT. After the Revolutionary War, in which James FitzJames Clow served as an artificer at West Point at the time of Arnold's treason, the family moved to Philadelphia and then to Pittsburgh. James Fitzjames Beach was the first town clerk of Pittsburgh and is buried in the Allegheny Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA. James Beach Clow from whom I am descended was married to Nancy Culbertson. She was the daughter of Robert Culbertson and Elizabeth Lindsay. James Beach Clow's home in Beaver Co., PA I have had the privilege of a private tour. It is on the Historical Registerand was used in the Undergroung Railroad. (Sophia Lusk's sister was Dianthe Lusk, first wife of John Brown) I have much more to share but would like to know about your connections. Diane, I know you come from Agnes E.Clow who married Robert P. Marshall but through which of the children? Candance you come through the James Beach Clow, son of Samuel Culbertson Clow and Sophia Hull Lusk. Your James Beach Clow married Matilda Ross. Harry Beach Clow was their son who married Bessie McNally 06 Jan 1892 in Chicago. From which of their children do you descend? I know if we work together we can help each other.
