1790-1840 CENSUS AGE CATEGORIES (except for 1790, pertaining here to "free white males and females").

1790: (1) free white males 16 and over, (2) free white males under 16, (3) free white females, (4) all other free persons, (5) slaves.

1800 and 1810 (males and females): (1) under 10, (2) 10 and under 16, (3) 16 and under 26, (4) 26 and under 45, (5) 45 and over.

1820 (males and females): (1) under 10, (2) 10 and under 16, (3) 16 and under 26, (4) 16 to 18 (males only),* (5) 26 and under 45, (6) 45 and over. *The extra category was for males, to determine the total manpower that could be called up in times of war. Besides confusing people interested in their ancestors, this category apparently confused census takers, resulting in many reports of (3) and (4) that are suspect.

1830-1840 (males and females): (1) under 5, (2) 5 and under 10, (3) 10 and under 15, (4) 15 and under 20, (5) 20 and under 30, (6) 30 and under 40, (7) 40 and under 50 (8) 50 and under 60 (9) 60 and under 70, (10) 70 and under 80, (11) 80 and under 90, (12) 90 and under 100, and (13) 100 and over.

The 1910 Miracode census is an index of the 1910 United States Federal Census, and is a modified version of the Soundex system. It is only available (2001) for the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. The Miracode census index is available online for some, but not all (as of 2001), of these states from Ancestry.com.

Much has been published about the various branches of the New England Cliffords. Most early New England Cliffords can be traced back to a George Clifford appearing in North America first in Massachusetts in 1643. There is a large chart giving the names and dates of George and unknown wife's descendants: "The Clifford Families of Rummey, Warren and Wentworth, New Hampshire." The chart states that research and charting was done by Howard Parke Moore, Genealogist, 414 East 52nd Street, New York, New York, in 1952, and is based on the 1930-1940 field work of Ida M. Gammons. The chart includes dates as late as the 1930s. My copy was sent to me by David W. Jackson (9601 East 71st Terrace, Raytown, Missouri); he received a copy from Peggy Marsh, 1399 NE Drost Drive, Bend, Oregon 97701, who received her copy from George Moore Clifford, P. O. Box 762, Captain Cook, Hawaii 96704. There are no sources for the chart and no indications that our Cliffords descend from one of these New England lines, but a connection can not be ruled out.

Thomas made his will 26 March 1698. I do not know the location. His wife, Elizabeth, was pregnant when the will was made. She probably gave birth to a daughter, Parnell Clifford. This would be evident from the will of Parnell's brother, Thomas, who died testate, age circa 19, but married, in 1703 and mentioned his siblings, including Parnell. Thomas's will was made in the County of Kent, then part of the Province of Pennsylvania.

This is speculation based on the birth of her first known child, 1757, and her last known child, circa 1780-1785, even though Sönn (1948), page 12, writes " … she probably was as old, if not older than her late husband Colonel Beavers [who was born in 1728]."

Pertaining to Joseph Beaver's first wife being Mary White, daughter of Alexander White, Sönn (1948), page 10, cites (1) family legend, and (2) information of Judge Joseph Mackey Roseberry of Belvidere (Sussex County), New Jersey, who wrote a memo so stating and listing Mary White born May 1730. Sönn mentions the wife and widow of Roseberry (a White descendant) who claims Mary White as the wife of Joseph Beavers. Sönn (1948) also mentions Abigail Beavers, daughter of Joseph Beavers, who was supposed to have had a family bible with several notations made several years after the facts stating that Mary White was wife of Joseph, but the bible was destroyed by a descendant because "of its dilapidated condition."

General William Maxwell, died 1796. He is a subject of several treatises including Ward, H. M. (1997). General William Maxwell and the New Jersey Continentals. According to the book's description (available from amazon.com): "The first biography of one of George Washington's most able and controversial generals examines the military career of William Maxwell from British army commissary to commander of the New Jersey Continental troops in major northern battles and campaigns and numerous confrontations with British incursionary forces into New Jersey. As Washington's first commander of the light infantry troops, Maxwell had crucial roles in the battles of Cooch's Bridge (Iron Hill), Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and Springfield, and led the New Jersey brigade in the Sullivan Indian expedition. Maxwell and his brigade frequently served as a probing arm for Washington' army. This book addresses the role of Maxwell as commander and describes the participation and ordeals of his New Jersey brigade. It offers insight into the quality of leadership both of Washington and the officer corps in general, giving a rare view of the Revolutionary War at the brigade level and the politics of command." Other references about General William Maxwell include: Griffith, J. H. (May 1894). "William Maxwell, of New Jersey, Brigadier General on the Revolution," in Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society, 2d Series, 13, pages 109-123; Stryker, W. S. (1885). General Maxwell' Brigade of the New Jersey Continental Line in the expedition against the Indians, in the year 1779, Trenton. W. S. Sharp Printing Company; and Snell (1881) (see References), pages 251-252.

The two sons were probably James and either Edward or Robert. All the accounts in the early history books of Westmoreland County report Charles was captured on 27 April, except Sipe (1932), who states 22 April. Sipe is undoubtedly correct since the original lists of Rebel Prisoner Returns also report 22 April.
237.
According to the "Rebel Prisoner Returns," Charles Clifford was captured "in his house." This is at odds with the historical accounts, such as Boucher's. Perhaps Charles was captured in his house, but the capture could have been as described here by Boucher. Months would have elapsed before Charles was ultimately delivered to the British at Montreal, perhaps not even by the same aboriginals who captured him. Such information as the place of capture, probably not considered very important, could have been quite hazy by that time. On the other hand, if this information was from an interrogation of Charles, himself, then the historical accounts are wrong. Here is another bit of conflicting information: when he was interrogated, Charles apparently gave his age as 52, at least 52 appeared on the "Prisons Returns." But we know from his stone that Charles was born 1730, which would make him 49 when he was captured.
238.
One wonders whether this chief was Chief Cornplanter. Cornplanter was born circa 1755, died 1836; his father was a Dutch trader, John O'Bail, or more likely John Abeel; his mother was a Seneca. The ancestral home of Cornplanter and his band of Senecas was in the upper Allegheny River watershed near the Pennsylvania-New York State border. The Cornplanter band is well known in the McKean and Warren County, Pennsylvania, area.
239.
Charles D. Clifford (Fort Mitchell, Kentucky) mentions two other interesting family legends pertaining to Charles's captivity. Charles would sometime participate in the braves' game of wrestling; Charles had a strong back and could throw most of them. Also Charles apparently could make a better moccasin than the Indians.
240.
An interesting addendum to the story is in a 29 January 1921 letter from Mary (Clifford) Felton (#713) to her cousin Robert S. Clifford (#1384). Mary wrote: "after being given up for lost they were surprised to see Charles come riding home on a fine horse with a new saddle and bridle, a new suit of clothes and one hundred dollars which had been given him after his release by an uncle in jersey."

Information on Thomas Gordon (Jr.) and Margaret (Oliphant) Gordon in part from Whitehead (1856), Early History of Perth Amboy. D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1856; in part from the will of Thomas Gordon, Amwell Township, Hunterdon County, dated 9 January 1779; in part from a 23 March 1966 letter from Milton Rubincam, to Charles D. Clifford (Fort Mitchell, Kentucky). Milton Rubincam, a distinguished Washington, D. C. genealogist, whose main interest (in his own words) "is primary to try to connect American settlers with the parent stock abroad." Milton Rubincam in his letter to Charles D. Clifford cites information on Thomas Gordon (Jr.) from an article he wrote in the Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society, volume 57, July 1939, pages 147-159, entitled "The Honorable Thomas Gordon: Attorney General and Chief Justice." In this article Rubincam states Thomas (Jr.) had seven children, naming Adgesilious, Othniel and Euphenetus. He did not know the names of the other four children, and did not report a source for stating there were seven children.

Their children: William, Basset, Mercy, Jonathan, Sylvanus, Peregrine, Sarah. __________ The two records below would not appear to be bible records, but they appeared immediately after the bible records on page 133 of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 23: "Jonathan White, son of Peregrine & Sarah White of Marshfield, was born at Marshfield upon the 4th day of June in the year 1658, brought to record by said Jonathan White this 18th day of May 1700."
