Real Life Stories
The Clough/Cluff/Clow Study

Richard Clough Yr Hen (meaning "Senior"), a glover from Denbigh, Wales, was the father of three daughters and seven sons. One son, Richard (Jr.) made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land on crusade, and returned to Great Britain where he accumulated a considerable fortune and was knighted, becoming Sir Richard Clough.

John Clough emigrated from London in 1635 on the ship 'Elizabeth' and took up residence in Salisbury, Massachusetts. His descendants had long wondered if they were related to the Welsh Clough family but, despite much effort, could trace no connection.

Members of the John Clough Genealogical Society (descendants of John Clough of Salisbury, Massachusetts) contacted Oxford Ancestors to start a Clough Y-line DNA study. The Y chromosome of a male member of the Society (surnamed "Clough") was analysed, as was the Y chromosome of a direct male descendant of Sir Richard's son by a Dutch mistress. THE RESULTS WERE EXACTLY THE SAME! Further analyses showed that a New England Clough, who hadn't been able to find a connection using existing records, was also an exact match, while a Clough from Kentucky was just one marker different.

The elation felt by these Society members on finally obtaining "proof" of their collective ancestry was tempered by the fact that the results from the Alabama/North Carolina Cloughs showed differences at five markers. This means that, on the balance of probability, the ancestry of the Alabama/North Carolina Clough's is different than that of the Salisbury Cloughs.

Having accepted these conclusions, further DNA results were sought. DNA from a member of the Maryland/Delaware Clow family was shown to be one mutation different from the Alabama/North Carolina Clough family. Family members of these two Clough family branches had long suspected a relationship, but could not find the evidence in existing records. The DNA results have breathed new life into the genealogical research of these Clough branches and the members of the John Clough Genealogical Society have found the results fascinating. Out of the DNA analyses performed to date, only one Cluff donor has not matched with any of the existing donors.

The Clough story was reproduced with the kind permission of Sheila Andersen, Genealogist for the John Clough Genealogical Society ( and Chief US Operations Officer for Oxford Ancestors (
ICH: I often wondered why my dad (he died 5 July 2004) would not share what he knew of his Clough family. I'm sure he would have been very surprised to learn his paternal side of the family came from a long line of Quaker families or maybe he knew. However for his own reasons he did not want to share this information. I was fortunated that he agreed to have his DNA done for the Clough DNA study before he died under the name Gerard Beckwith.
Thanks to cousin Clark Whelton who found my Clough query on GenForum in Sept 2000 on the internet. I was asking for more information on Edwin Clough who lived in Auburn, Maine where my paternal grandfather Alvah was born. With information Clark sent and what I had a link from my Clough line to John Clough of Salisbury, Essex, MA was made. For years I've had the John Clough book Vol I on my bookshelve (I now have Vol II). From these books I was never able to make the connection even though many names in our Clough line are very much the same as the generations we came from. Clark's grandfather Edgar Clarence Clark (birth surname Clough) and my paternal great grandfather Edwin Clough were twins born 25 Sept 1856 at Brunswick, Cumberland, ME, to David Crossman Clough and his 2nd wife Avis Keene Jones. The twins births are recorded in the Durham, Androscoggin, Maine, Friends' records also in Berwick, ME. Records on these families were found in Androscoggin, Cumberland, Kennebec and Oxford counties of Maine among other counties. These are the same counties my grandfather Alvah lived and visited relatives before he died in 1930 at the age of 40 yrs in Somerville, Middlesex, MA. The twins Edgar and Edwin had an older half brother whose name was Alvah who had died in 1885. What makes it ever more interesting that when the twin Edwin had a son born five years later in 1890 he named his son Alvah after his dead half brother. Alvah son of the twin Edwin was my paternal grandfather who I never knew. Below is how my Clough line is connected to John Clough of Salisbury, MA.
Dec 2nd, 2002 - Received news from cousin Clark Whelton grandson of Edgar Clark nee Edgar C. Clough that cousin Henry David Clark has received his DNA test results that proves our bloodline back to John Clough who came from London to Boston in 1635. Clark's grandfather and my great grandfather Edwin Clough were twin brothers, sons of David Crossman Clough below.
May 1st, 2003 - The long wait is over. In todays mail received my fathers' DNA test results which are a perfect match to the John Clough who came on the "Elizabeth" from London to Boston in 1635. We received certificate number Y6719. John Clough is my paternal 8th great great grandfather.
May 2005 - you will find more information on some than others. This is because I was contacted by a descent of that person. When this happens I do more research on that person and add information to the family tree.

The surname Clough is of Ancient English origin and is often spelled Cluff or Clow. Most of the Clough families who began in the New England area can trace their ancestry to John Clough the immigrant.  We are direct descendants of John Clough who came to Boston, MA in 1635 on the ship "Elizabeth".

Old Garrison House History at
William Damm resided in this house till his death in 1718. His son William Damm inherited the farm, and resided in the house till 1740. At his death it came into possession of his sister Leah Damm, who had married Samuel Hayes. Samuel and Leah kept house there from 1740 to 1770. It then passed into possession of their granddaughter, Leah Nute, who married Joseph Drew in 1771. They commenced housekeeping there and that was their home to the end of their lives, which were long. In 1810, Joseph Drew built the mansion house in which Mrs. Rounds now lives; his son William Plaisted Drew was then 16 years old, and, when his parents passed on, he inherited the garrison and the new house, which is the finest dwelling in the Back River district, and was beautifully located on a farm that is one of the best in Dover.

Town once a safe haven for weary travelers by Emily Quirk
Fremont- Did you know Poplin, as the town was called in Colonial times, had nearly 15 taverns and even a brothel?
Zacheus Clough's tavern from 1761 to 1764 was at 125 South Road and is now a residence. The Clough family was among the wealthiest in Poplin. The tavern was called "The Hook in the River," because the Exeter River hooks around that area in Fremont. Four of the 100 barrels of gunpowder stolen from British troops at Fort William & Mary in New Castle in 1774 were hidden here.

Elizabeth had by the will of her grandfather John Clough, a parcel of land in Haverhill, which was sold for twenty pounds, and besides a marriage fitting out by her father, had from his estate three acres of his homestead which was sold for twenty-five pounds.
Thomas was a farmer. He inherited and accumulated a good property, which he bestowed on his children in his lfe time. In Haverhill he had a farm of above a hundred aces and in the adjoining town of Amesbury he had above three hundred acres of meadow and timer land, part of a tract of about five hundard acres, once jointly owned by him and his brothers with a saw-mill thereon.
In 1728 the northerly part of Haverhill, the part in which Thomas and his brothers, and his sons John and Cornelius lived, was erected into a prish, called the North Parish; a meeting house built the same year and Nov 1730 an orthodox church organized therein, the following month Rev. James Cushing was settled and ordained, and March 23, 1732/3, Thomas was made one of its deacons, which he continued til his death. Thomas, his wife, his mother, his sons John, Cornelius and Nathaniel and his daughters Abigail, Ruth and Susannah, and the wife of Cornelius became members of the new church at its formation.  
Deacon Thomas died according to his gravestone "Feb. 18, 1742, in his 72nd year". He was interred in the North Parish cemetery, laid out by the town in 1734, which lies now partly in Haverhill and partly in Plaistow. By Elizabeth his only wife Deacon Thomas Johnson had five sons and five daughters.

John Clough History vol I
A tradition has been passed down among the descendants of Samuel3 that probably between 1736-1740 Indians attacked his home. The four older children were living elsewhere, but Mercy, John, Thomas, Elizabeth and Ebenezer and their parents were probably massacred. No records remain of these seven Cloughs. The tradition is told that Jemima was hidden in a churn and a small boy, probably Jonathan, was concealed within a tall clock. The Indians discovered these little children and carried them away captives to their village and treated them kindly. Years later, when an epidemic threatened to exterminate the inhabitants of the Indians' village, a friendly squaw returned the two children to Amesbury. Perhpas they found a home with their oldest brother, Peter Clough.

Eaton's Company and marched to Exeter to repel these dangerous foes. The previous year, 1709, he married Hannah Gile. Their first home was in Salisbury and both became members of the first church in 1715.
Ephraim Gile and Jonathan were interested in a new township called Cheshire, now Chester, NH. In March, 1720 surveyors laid out the lots and Ephraim and Jonathan became Proprietors of the town. Ephraim built a log house on lot 61 and cleared a piece of land. He helped to cut the first pathway from Haverhill to Chester and also the Haverhill Proprietors made another road from Kingston the same year.
Jonathan owned lots 55, 74 and 77, but he did not move to Chester, because a better opportunity presented in Connecticut. Ephraim Gile, Jr brother of Hannah Gile Clough, and his wife, Judith who was also his cousin, were moving to Thompson, CT where land was more level and easier to clear than in NH. Jonathan and Hannah and their five children joined the Giles in this migration in 1722. for more details see page 60-61 of the Clough book

Clough book says lived at Ticonderoga, Essex, NY
Jerry Dafoe wrote:
William and Hannah Sweet moved to Ticonderoga, NY about 1813 where he bought a 200 acre tract of land in the Vineyard. Here he built the first squared log house in town. When this house was built, the old log barn across the road had already been built for some time, and many think it was one of General Burgoyne's outposts. The old house was occupied by several generations until destroyed by fire in 1927

Plumas county - Judge Greenleaf Greeley Clough
This gentleman is a native of Mt. Vernon, Kennebec county, Maine, where he was born October 9, 1835. His parents, Nathaniel Clough and Rebecca W., whose maiden name was Greeley, were also natives of Maine. The judge arrived in California September 24, 1859, and settled in Sierra county at Gibsonville. He had studied the law as his profession early in life, and soon after commenced its practice, making his debut at Downieville. He also practiced in the courts of Plumas, frequently coming from the former place to Quincy during the winter months, with commendable zeal and fidelity in behalf of his client, on snow-shoes. In 1877 he was presented by his party (the republicans) as their choice for the judgeship of the Twenty-first Judicial District, composed of Plumas, Lassen, and Modoc counties, his opponent being the Hon. J. D. Goodwin, then presiding judge of the district, over whom he was successful. He served two years. In 1879 he was again placed before the people for the position of superior judge&emdash;a position created by the new constitution, then about to go into effect. On this occasion he was opposed to Judge E. T. Hogan, the democratic candidate. Judge Clough was married on July 5, 1879, to Miss Metta S. Lowell, the second daughter of James M Lowell, from Maine also. The union has been blessed with one child, a son Leon Clough, now two years of age. The judge has ever been and still is a hard student, devoted to the law. Has many warm friends in all parties, and has a fine appreciation of them. He resides in Quincy. He is a man of energy, industry, and of strict temperate habits. Henry Clough born 4 June 1838 Mount Vernon, ME Charles L.

page 61 Philp Welch of Ipswich and his Descendants
Samuel Welch lived to a great age; within a year or two of his death, he was visited by John Farmer and Jacob B. Moore, two celebrated historians and antiquaries of Concord, NH, and in the second volume of their Historical Collections (pp 148-153), may be seen an interesting account of their interview with him. They again visited him a short time before his death. Samuel stated that his wife Eleanor was much older than himself? She died leaving four children and he then married in 1791, Widow Rachel Elliott of Bow, born in 1738, daughter of William Sargent of Newton, NY. Samuel was then eighty and Rachel fifty-three.
ICH: In the Philip Welch of Ipswich book page 60 it shows two different Elener Clough's that Samuel is suppose to have married. It appears to have mistakes in dates as both women had children with same names, only different birth dates. I think Elener and Eleanor are the same women and when research was done for the book dates were copied wrong.

Samuel Clough of Durham, ME is reported to have come there from Berwick, ME, a town where he met Quakers who were moving from MA to the Vicinity of Yarmouth, ME. since his brother, Amos, possibly another brother, Richard, and their Welch relatives were already in North Yarmouth, there is reason to believe that Samuel of Brentwood went to Durham, ME. Evidently a former group of Quakers had already occupied farms in the vicinity of Durham, including North Yarmouth because the girl whom Samuel married was born there. Doubtless Samuel visited his relatives there and met Sarah Estes. A Samuel Clough came from Berwick, ME to Durham, ME in the second group of settlers who were Quakers. Samuel and Edward Estes bought land in Durham then called Royalsborough, on June 10, 1771, lot 16 was owned by Samuel and lot 17 by Joseph Estes, the brother of the girl whom Samuel married. Samuel did not live to see his family grow to maturity. His sons became men of whom he would have had reason to be proud and his descendants in later generations became distinguished citizens.
Sarah was daughter of Edward Estes born 20 Feb 1702/9 Lynn, Essex, MA died 17 Feb 1788 Durham, Androscoggin, ME and Patience Carr born 1709 RI died 13 Feb 1788 Durham, Androscoggin, ME. Children of Samuel and Sarah all born in Durham, Androscoggin, ME with births recorded in Friends Church records found at Windham Historical Society.
Sarah Estes wife of Samuel Clough was born at North Yarmouth, Maine on 16 April 1752. The "Records of the Woman's Monthly Meeting of Friends for Herpswell and Falmouth" in the list of marriages from 1751 to 1790 on page 3, "at our Monthly Meeting held at Falmouth ye 23th of ye 3rd mo. 1772 the Preparative Meeting Cald upon their appeared for Falmouth Hope Winslow and Sarah Goddard on account from Herpswells shere as Sarah Cloof (Clough) has bone Contrary to the good orders used amongst friends on the account of her marring with one not of our Society and in so doing hath Denyd membership with us Sarah Cloof hath sent in a paper to this meeting by nay of acknolegment friends refers it for further Consideration." The date when Samuel and Sarah were married is not on record. Sarah's mother, Patience (Carr) was very prominent in the Quaker meetings. Samuel Clough died after making his will on Jan 10, 1799. The Friends Records are stored in Portland, ME. Since the names of the children are recorded in these ancient books, Samuel and Sarah must have been forgiven by the Society.

From her father's estate she received three slaves to whom she gave their freedom after bringing them to Maine.

The Jacobs-Clough Family in Iowa by Albert Lindley Beane 1943
On the river road, three miles north of Brunswick, ME. stands a substantial, well-preserved farmhouse, built about a century ago. This farm was inherited by the thirtheenth child of Isaac Clough, Maria W. Isaac Clough possesed many acres which he gave to serveral of his children, and to the others he gave money when they went to the city to live. Maria married Isaac P. Jacobs, born in Dover, NH, Dec 25, 1821, only child of his father. He was tall, of commanding presence, possessing a strong mentality and excellent financial ability. His hair was dark, eyes blue. Maria and Isaac worked in the same factory in Providence, RI, fell in love and were married in 1842, and established a home on land that was part of the Isaac Clough estate. Maria died of consuption in 1858 at the age of abt 35 years, leaving four children: Mary Susan, Isaac Orlando, Annie Maria and Abbie Sophia. A year or two later, Isaac Jacobs married Naomi Elliot Smith and had three children (ICH: she already had three children from her first marriage). In 1862 he sold the farm and boarded the train, going by way of Montreal, P.Q., to Muscatine, Iowa where they resided for a year. then he moved to a fine farm in Big Grove township in Benton county, Iowa which he purchased from Benjamin Paige, a native of New Hampshire. A large, well constructed house, painted white presented an inviting appearance. This home was usually filled with guests on Sundays. Mary Susan, Annie Maria and their step-sister, Mary Ellen Smith, taught for years successfully in the country schools. In 1873 the family began to disintegrate. Mary Susan married Edward Dickson, Isaac married Adeline French of Marengo, Annie Maria married her step-brother, James W. Smith, and Abbie Sophia married Joseph Linley Beane who was born near Farmington, ME and became a minister in the Society of Friends'. In 1878 Naomi Jacobs died of apoplexy. Isaac lived until 1898, died in Albion, IA aged 77 yrs. Abbie Sophia Beane lived at Le Grand, IA and was 88 years old when her son wrote this story in 1943.

Burnice was "Iowa's Self-Made Paleontologists"
Genealogy of Descendants of John Clough of Salisbury, MA vol II pg 26
When Burnice was 13 years of age, he noticed strange specimens that were imbedded in sandstone or loose sand while workmen were excavating a sandbank on his father's farm. Curiosity compelled him to collect these fossils, then to searchh for their origin. His studies proved that he had discovered and preserved the greatest concentration of fossils known to the world. Thus Burnice Beane is known as an authority in Paleontology. His books and articles in scientific magazines have been published far and wide and he has lectured in New York, Paris, London, and Capetown. He has supplied collections of Crionoids for American and foreign museums. Wherever "rockhounds" are searching, there Dr. Beane will be among them.
Past Exhibit of the State Historical Society of Iowa
Burnice Hartley Beane grew up on a farm at the edge of Le Grand quarry. In the quiet times, between chores and schoolwork, he found time for his hobby - collecting insects, bird eggs, rocks, and finally fossils. Beane helped his mother manage the farmily farm while his father toured the Midwest as an evangelist Quaker minister. They sold their cash crops of strawberries, watermelon and potatoes in Marshalltown and other nearby towns. Burnice attended Penn College in Oskaloosa for a short time and then returned to the family farm near the edge of the quarry. Here he raised his family and continued his interest in the fossils of Le Grand. As an enthusiastic youth, Burnice Beane saved the crinoids of Le Grand from the rock crusher because of his interest in fossils near his home. He added to his growing collection, kept records of his finds and studied the crinoid for over fifty years. Although a farmer by trade many recognized him as an on the fossils of the Le Grand area. Today many other amateurs are following Mr. Beane's example and responcibly collect fossils for the enjoyment and future research. In 1909 the ownership of the Le Grand quarry passed to the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad.  The quarry produced Crushed stone for road and railway ballast, agricultural lime and building stone for the Old Iowa State Historical Building originated from the quarry. The quarry's most significant product however, is the small flower-like animals, crinoids, that are preserved in the rock.
