Clarinda Cox

F, #67544, b. October 1821, d. 4 September 1902
  • Reference: W999 ID999
  • Birth*: October 1821; Tennessee, USA
  • (Bride) Marriage*: 16 October 1859; prob., Prairie, Hancock Co., Illinois, USA; Groom=Lorenzo Wells
  • Burial*: 4 September 1902; Elvaston City Cemetery, Elvaston, Hancock Co., Illinois, USA; Clarinda married W. D. Ruddle in Adams CO, IL on February 27, 1840. She married Lorenzo Wells on October 16, 1859 in Hancock CO, IL after the death of her spouse and Lorenzo's wife Lucy Ann Lowry Wells. Lorenzo and Clarinda are listed in the Hancock CO census of 1860 as residing in Prairie Township along with four boarders, Clarinda's children from her first marriage, Andrew and Francis Ruddle both aged 12. Also listed is Lorenzo's youngest daughter Mary from his marriage to Lucy. Mary's age is 18. After the death of Lorenzo in 1865, Clarinda married her third husband John Thompson.

    Clarinda's obituary was published in the Carthage Republican on September 10, 1902. "Mrs. Clarinda Thompson died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Loren Russel in this city, Thursday morning, September 4,1902, age 81. Mrs. Thompson was born in Tennessee and came with her parents to this state when very young. She was a resident of Hancock County for sixty-five years. She was thrice married, first to David Ruddle of Lima, IL of which union two children survive--Thomas and Jackson of Elvaston, second to Lorenzo Wells of Elvaston in 1850 of which union two chldren survive---Mrs. Russel of this city and E. D. Wells of Peoria. Mr. Wells died in 1865 and she married afterward J. C. Thompson who died about twenty years ago. Mr. Wells, her second husband, owned and first operated the famous old time tavern known as the 'Half Way House' near Elvaston. He was the landlord during all the Mormon troubles and was himself a Mormon for a time. During this period, he was hunted for by the government troops, but was successfully hidden by his young sons in a corn shock. During the Civil War, he also lead an exciting career as a Democrat in an unfriendly country. This tavern remained in Mr. Well's possession till his death. Mrs. Thompson was a life long member of the Christian church and was devout and faithful. She was a good mother. The last twenty years of her life she has been an invalid and the past ten years she has made her home with Mrs. Russell where she had every care and attention from her devoted daughter. Funeral was held from the residence Saturday, conducted by Rev.Sherman Hill. Burial was at Elvaston."

    Further study of the Illinois census for 1900 shows a Loren Russell and his wife Clara living in Carthage Township. Loren is listed as a jeweler. Loren and Clara apparently had no children. This is most assuredly the 'Mrs. Russel'
    mentioned in the obituary of Clarinda. The two children of Clarinda and Lorenzo are Douglas b. 1861 and Clara b. 1864. Both are listed with Clarinda and John Thompson in the Illinois census of 1870 as well is Andrew Ruddle, age 22, her son by her first marriage and a nephew, Isaac Cox, age 12. In 1880, Clarinda is living with Douglas Wells age 18 and Clara Wells age 16. It appears that John has died. In 1900, she is living with son Andrew Ruddle, age 52 and his wife and Isaac Cox, age 21.
  • Death*: 4 September 1902; Elvaston, Hancock Co., Illinois, USA; Clarinda married W. D. Ruddle in Adams CO, IL on February 27, 1840. She married Lorenzo Wells on October 16, 1859 in Hancock CO, IL after the death of her spouse and Lorenzo's wife Lucy Ann Lowry Wells. Lorenzo and Clarinda are listed in the Hancock CO census of 1860 as residing in Prairie Township along with four boarders, Clarinda's children from her first marriage, Andrew and Francis Ruddle both aged 12. Also listed is Lorenzo's youngest daughter Mary from his marriage to Lucy. Mary's age is 18. After the death of Lorenzo in 1865, Clarinda married her third husband John Thompson.

    Clarinda's obituary was published in the Carthage Republican on September 10, 1902. "Mrs. Clarinda Thompson died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Loren Russel in this city, Thursday morning, September 4,1902, age 81. Mrs. Thompson was born in Tennessee and came with her parents to this state when very young. She was a resident of Hancock County for sixty-five years. She was thrice married, first to David Ruddle of Lima, IL of which union two children survive--Thomas and Jackson of Elvaston, second to Lorenzo Wells of Elvaston in 1850 of which union two chldren survive---Mrs. Russel of this city and E. D. Wells of Peoria. Mr. Wells died in 1865 and she married afterward J. C. Thompson who died about twenty years ago. Mr. Wells, her second husband, owned and first operated the famous old time tavern known as the 'Half Way House' near Elvaston. He was the landlord during all the Mormon troubles and was himself a Mormon for a time. During this period, he was hunted for by the government troops, but was successfully hidden by his young sons in a corn shock. During the Civil War, he also lead an exciting career as a Democrat in an unfriendly country. This tavern remained in Mr. Well's possession till his death. Mrs. Thompson was a life long member of the Christian church and was devout and faithful. She was a good mother. The last twenty years of her life she has been an invalid and the past ten years she has made her home with Mrs. Russell where she had every care and attention from her devoted daughter. Funeral was held from the residence Saturday, conducted by Rev.Sherman Hill. Burial was at Elvaston."
