In Reply to: Lookup? E Clow's "A Cleft in the Rock" by Allen Trickey of 614

Well, its actually a 3 ring binder rather than a book, and its not index. Scanned it and found some stuff on p.88, you're luckier than me. I'm still at a dead end for my Clows (See previous posts by me, John Clow, Lester Clow around Highgate, VT and Philipsburg, Quebec).

Anyhow found this:"One of the consequences of war is that men are no longer home to father children - we suspect there were no extended leaves in the War of 1812. One child may have been born just before or soon after Henry's wartime service. This child was a second girl, Lovina, probably a Purdy name since I have seen the names coupled elsewhere. Since she married in 1831, (the officiating minister Rev.Wm. Smart did not record ages), we know that she had to be younger than Anne, according to the latter's obiturary 100 years later, she was the second in the family. I also know that a daughter, Rebecca, was a child of Henry Clow. From her death certificate and death notice, we can determine that she was born in 1816. If Lovina were born, for instance in 1814, she would be 17 at her marriage in 1831, when she married Hiram Trickey. Thereafter they seemed to disappear entirely from the local scene."

Then there's more about the author's genealogical research...then he notes, "The 1870 census of Ogdensburg, New York listed Hiram Trickey aged 67, i.e. born 1803, as a machinist. Lovina apparently had passed on and his daughter, Fanny (another Frances?) was keeping house for him. She was 39 and was born in Canada, in 1831 or thereabouts. At any rate we seem to know where the Trickey's disappeared."

Sounds like you could use the book since the formal title is Henry and REbekah Clow and their descendents, Book I A Cleft in the Rock.
