Clemens' wife was Anna Marie Hauer.
I have collected some information about him which I enclose
"Born in Wurttemburg
1728- sailed down Rhine to Holland, thence across Atlantic in ship "Morehouse" to land at Philadelphia on 8/28/1728. Came with 2 sons, John and Daniel and settled in Berks County at Windsor Twp. Clement paid 6 pounds tax in 1759. Wife, Anna Maria survived him. Clement died 1782 and will was probated 4/8/1782

History of Northumberland Cty

"Clemens/Clement/Clementz was baptized in Solingen, Germany, on June 3, 1705. On August 24, 1728, Clemens, then 23 years old, arrived in America with his brothers, Peter, Frederick, and Abraham, and probably his father, mother, and sisters on the ship Mortonhouse. Palatines were on this ship. Clemens signed his own name on the ship roster. On January 4, 1734, Clement applied for a warrant on 86 plus acres in Windsor Twp., Berks Co., PA. In 1735 Clement was taxed on 100 acres of land in the warranties of Philadelphia. In 1764 he, along with Frederick Dunkelberger and Catherine Hauer attended the Dunkel's or Moselem church. In 1765, Clement was included in a list of foreigners naturalized by the Supreme Court at Philadelphia. He took the required oath on September 15, 1765. In 1768, on the propietary return of Windsor Twp., Clement had 100 acres, 2 horses, 3 cattle, and for that paid a tax of one pound. . . . When Clement arrived in America, he carried with him a Martin Luther New Testament which he declared was to be passed down in the family to each firstborn son [it is currently in Lansing, Michigan]. . . . No burial place has ever been located for Clement or Anna Maria. It was common practice to bury on the family land. One can only list time of death by court records." (From Dunkelbergs in America)

From "Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County," p. 1706: "The Dunkelberger family had its early home in Wurtemberg, Germany, whence came Clement (or Clementz), Daniel and John. They sailed from Rheinfels, on the English ship "Molhouse," landing at Philadelphia Aug. 28, 1728, and located a little north of what is now Hamburg, in Berks county. Clement Dunkelberger immediately paid tax to the English crown. When he died in 1782, his home was in Windsor township. His will made Feb. 12, 1776, was probated April 8, 1782, and is on record in Will Book B, page 38. At the time the will was made his wife Anna Maria was still living. Their children were: Clemens, who obtained the plantation, Catharine, m. to Andrew Winiger; Mrs. John Deck; John; Frederick; Christopher; Elizabeth, m. to Michael Deck; Philip; Sevila; Magdalena and Dorotha. It is also said that Clementz Dunkelberger had a son Daniel, but if so, his name does not appear among those mentioned in the will."
