We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    Notes 
    • Possibly the son of Benjamin and Eliza Clark, listed with their family, including 15 year old Jarred, in Pleasant Twp, Grant Co IN in 1850. Benjamin is aged 51, born VA, Eliza is aged 44, born PA. Their 6 children, Eleanor, aged 22; Washington, age 21; Solomon, age 19; Telitha, age 17; Jarred, age 15; and Rachael, age 13, were all born in Ohio.

      I've not found any other references to Margaret, the 22 year old wife listed with Jared in the 1860 census of Jefferson Twp, IA.

      There are three Clarks listed in Jefferson Twp in the Henry County 1859-1860 Directory:
      Clark, James
      Clark, William
      Clark, William C.

      A William Clark is listed in Jefferson Twp in 1860 (age 34) with Mary A. (age 30) Clark, both born in OH. They have three children the youngest of whom is George, age 9, who was born in IA. (William possible brother of Jared if William was married and so not listed with family in 1850?) Immediately below William is 66 year old John C. Clark, born in PA, with 62 year old wife Eliza, also born in PA. (Possible father for Jared?)

      Listed immediately below Jared in the 1880 Agricultural census is Isaac Cahail, Elizabeth's father (no ages given in that census).

      Birth place given as Ohio in 1895 IA State Census, occupation Laborer.

      Birth and death dates are so far only from a tombstone photo, Otho Cemetery, submitted by Gail Wenhardt to Find a Grave.
