  • Notes 
    • NOTE: I have been going over the notes of Joyce L. Clore Elkins andthose of Cathi Clore Frost and comparing them for some sort ofcollaberation on where the family was located. It would appear thatthe farm land bordered both Parke and Montgomery Counties andoverlapped into both. So, it has been very difficult to determineexactly which county is the birth and death counties of individuals inmany cases. Also, in many cases, where one of them is married in acounty it's not necessarily where they lived in a county and viceversa. There may be some errors in locations of births and deaths.If you should decide a mistake was made, please feel free to contactme: sljuhl1234@yahoo.com or at

      This is a record of land purchases in Indiana while Israel was livingin Kentucky. "When he (meaning, Israel) moved to Kentucky in 1811, hewas about 32 (years) and had three children. By the time he moved toIndiana, another 28 years had passed making him about 60 years old,and he had a total of nine children that all moved as well. Although,he took out seven land patents in Indiana totaling 760 acres betweenthe years of 1824-1834, Israel must have transferred ownership of thisland to his children and "retired" as he is not found in the 1840census. He lived with his daughter Lucinda and her husband BenjaminGarland at the time of the 1850 census. His sister Margaret'shusband, John Deer, began purchasing land in Indiana at the same time,but they moved between 1825 when John Deer last appears in BooneCounty, Kentucky tax records; In 1830 is when John Deer appears inthe census in Montgomery County, Indiana. According totradition,...Israel Clore walked to Indiana carrying only his gun tomake land purchases. When he had saved up enough money, he would makethe journey to purchase more land. At the time he sold out inKentucky he owned over 300 acres there as well according to taxrecords. ...Israel's land is now a museum farm having been in the samefamily that purchased it from him. Although the frame house was builtafter Israel sold the land, the LOG CABIN MAY HAVE BEEN BUILT BYISRAEL." E-mail Per Cathi Clore Frost = cathiclorefrost@comcast.net Dated: 23 March 2006.

      "clipping from unknown newspaper [Chariton, IA?]
      Want an Autograph of President Jackson?
      Several Genuine Signatures of Nation's Seventh
      President in Possession of Wayne Clore.
      By Dick Haislet
      Many persons read within the last two weeks an article in a nationalweekly, a story about the famous Hermitage located 12 miles out ofNashville, Tenn., and its equally famous owner, the hard fightingguntoting hero of New Orleans and the seventh presiden of the UnitedStates.
      This week President Andrew Jackson came to light in Lucas county. Theother evening Wayne Clore, who owns a farm six miles north of Lucasbrought several old land patents into the office of The CharitonNewspapers.
      Written on sheep skin parchment, these five old land patents ranged inages from 126 years to 116 years old, three bearing Jackson'ssignature.
      The titles themselves were taken out by Clore's great grandfather onland about 45 miles north of Indianapolis, Ind. Clore who justrecently was sent the titles, suspects there might be quite a fewmore, as the earlier Clore family at one time owned some 3,000 acresin that vicinity.
      The earliest of the five land patents is dated Feb. 6, 1824, and inone place bears what appears to be President James Monroe's signature.
      However, where the final signature should be afixed, time seems tohave obliterated the name. Clore says he assumes it is legal, as thetitle has the seal of the United States, and is counter signed by theCommissioner of General Land office.
      Before the Homestead Act, all such land, as purchased by Clore'sancestors, had to be negotiated for at public auction, with theminimum price set by the U. S. Government at two dollars an acre.
      These were public land ceded to the Government, and were originallyused to retire Federal war debts; or were given as a bonus to veteransof the Revolutionary War or their families. As claims for public landdecreased, the government found itself with more and more land, anddecided (with a series of bills) on the public auction method of itsdisposal.
      The states in which public land lay, by law could not tax it, orinterfere with its disposal by the United States.
      Clore's great grandfather, Israel, farmed in Boone county, Ky., andit's very probable that he never saw his Indiana land holdings. Clorebelieves he either purchased the land for his children or morepossibly, for land speculation which was quite popular at that time.
      Old Israel Clore seems to have passed down some of his shrewdness tohis sons, as to the value of land because Clore's grandfather, Howard,made land purchased in the present day Lucas county area. UnlikeIsrael, grandfather Clore made the trip to Iowa from Indiana onhorseback himself and personally picked out his land before buying.This was about 1850.
      Land purchased in this area amounted to about 1,000 acres, but whenClore's father and uncles came out from Indiana to claim it they foundquite a good deal of it had gone to squatters by default, and so theydivided up the remaining land themselves. The Wayne L. Clore farmtoday is 440 acres.
      So, if you ever run across an old land patent don't dismiss it as aninteresting piece of paper because it might contain history thatconcerns you." SOURCE: Cathi Clore Frost, www.RootsWeb.com; 28January 2008, SLJuhl, compiler.

      Several Genuine Signatures of Nation's Seventh
      President in Possession of Wayne Clore.
      By Dick Haislet
      Many persons read within the last two weeks an article in a nationalweekly, a story about the famous Hermitage located 12 miles out ofNashville, Tenn., and its equally famous owner, the hard fightingguntoting hero of New Orleans and the seventh presiden of the UnitedStates.
      This week President Andrew Jackson came to light in Lucas county. Theother evening Wayne Clore, who owns a farm six miles north of Lucasbrought several old land patents into the office of The CharitonNewspapers.
      Written on sheep skin parchment, these five old land patents ranged inages from 126 years to 116 years old, three bearing Jackson'ssignature.
      The titles themselves were taken out by Clore's great grandfather onland about 45 miles north of Indianapolis, Ind. Clore who justrecently was sent the titles, suspects there might be quite a fewmore, as the earlier Clore family at one time owned some 3,000 acresin that vicinity.
      The earliest of the five land patents is dated Feb. 6, 1824, and inone place bears what appears to be President James Monroe's signature.
      However, where the final signature should be afixed, time seems tohave obliterated the name. Clore says he assumes it is legal, as thetitle has the seal of the United States, and is counter signed by theCommissioner of General Land office.
      Before the Homestead Act, all such land, as purchased by Clore'sancestors, had to be negotiated for at public auction, with theminimum price set by the U. S. Government at two dollars an acre.
      These were public land ceded to the Government, and were originallyused to retire Federal war debts; or were given as a bonus to veteransof the Revolutionary War or their families. As claims for public landdecreased, the government found itself with more and more land, anddecided (with a series of bills) on the public auction method of itsdisposal.
      The states in which public land lay, by law could not tax it, orinterfere with its disposal by the United States.
      Clore's great grandfather, Israel, farmed in Boone county, Ky., andit's very probable that he never saw his Indiana land holdings. Clorebelieves he either purchased the land for his children or morepossibly, for land speculation which was quite popular at that time.
      Old Israel Clore seems to have passed down some of his shrewdness tohis sons, as to the value of land because Clore's grandfather, Howard,made land purchased in the present day Lucas county area. UnlikeIsrael, grandfather Clore made the trip to Iowa from Indiana onhorseback himself and personally picked out his land before buying.This was about 1850.
      Land purchased in this area amounted to about 1,000 acres, but whenClore's father and uncles came out from Indiana to claim it they foundquite a good deal of it had gone to squatters by default, and so theydivided up the remaining land themselves. The Wayne L. Clore farmtoday is 440 acres.
      So, if you ever run across an old land patent don't dismiss it as aninteresting piece of paper because it might contain history thatconcerns you.
