  • Notes 
    • SOURCE NOTE: I have been going over the notes of Joyce L. CloreElkins and those of Cathi Clore Frost and comparing them for some sortof collaberation on where the family was located. It would appearthat the 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

      Howard and Margaret Deer Clore had eleven children, but only eight areknown at the present time.

      SOURCE Note: Please see the biography of son Henry Harrison Clore.See excerpt below:
      "Howard Clore was educated in the subscription schools of Kentucky,which he never attended more than 6 days after he was 10. On Dec. 12,1839, he married Margaret Deer, whose father, John Deer, was a nativeof Virginia, removed to Kentucky, and finally located in MontgomeryCounty, Indiana where he entered land at an early day. Mrs. Clore wasborn in Boone County, Ky and died November 6, 1856. After his firstmarriage Mr. Clore located on the farm which he now operates on Sec.16, Howard Township, Parke County. No improvements had then beenplaced upon the farm, which has since been developed entirely by him.In 1868 he built the large and imposing house where he now lives.Before this his home had been an old-fashioned double log house. Hisfarm comprises 520 acres, which with the exception of 40 acres, is allin one body. On New Years Day, 1859, Howard Clore was again married,the lady being Sarah Deer, sister of his first wife. After her deathhe married Mrs. Elizabeth Frame. He had 11 children by his firstunion, 5 by his second. Those living are: Amanda Ellen, who lives athome; Henry Harrison, subject of this sketch; Sarah L; Howard, Jr. whois a farmer in Lucas County, Iowa; and Whitfield, who is engaged inpartnership with his brother Howard in stock-raising in Lucas Co,where they have 850 acres of land. In 1852 Mr. Clore went to Iowa andentered about 700 acres of land. Mr. Clore, Sr. has his farmsuperintended by another and is not actively engaged himself onaccount of his age. He has one of the finest farms in the county, allupland. He has a large amount of stock on the place and in the pasthas raised considerable for the market. His home was built at a costof $8000 in 1868. Mr. Clore is honored by all who know him and thoughnot a church member, has a strong love for everything relating toreligion, especially that inclining toward Universalism."
