Re: KY to IL Race, Clements, Clemons, Clemonts, Clemens & Angell

I found a Benjamin Clemens in the database "Kentucky Obituaries, 1787-1854" on Ancestry.com:

Benjamin Clemens, of Lexington. Died of Cholera July 15, 1849. - "Lexington (Kentucky) Observer and Reporter" - July 18, 1849.


One problem when researching this line is the constant changing of the spelling of the name. For example, I found Jonathan Clements name changed back and forth in every census:

1860 Federal Census - Pendleton, Kentucky
Jonathan Clemons        age 23

1870 Federal Census - Grants Lick, Campbell, Kentucky
Jonathan Clemens        b: abt 1835        Illinois

1880 Federal Census - Grants Lick, Campbell, Kentucky
John Clemens

1900 Federal Census - Grants Lick, Campbell, Kentucky
Johnathan Clemans       b: abt 1846        Illinois

1910 Federal Census - Grants Lick, Campbell, Kentucky
Johnathan Clemens        b: abt 1836        Illinois
