Hi Brett:

You bring up a great Clover family subject ... as the Clover family researcher for nearly 25 years I can tell you that the majority of your Clover ancestors were documented as farmers first (some wealthy in land holdings) and when any became involved in community issues, that time was only secondary to farming.

As an example: Peter Clover (my 6th great-grandfather) after his political involvements in Ross Co., OH; 2 enrollments in the War of 1812; marriage; then moved to Franklin Co. to join family already situated. Started teaching school in the log cabin (used also as the first Fr. Co., OH Methodist faith church and meeting house) located on his father's original acreage about 1817 (daughters Catherine and Elizabeth were students); was the first Prairie Twp. Justice of the Peace; Commissioner of the Court and called the "Just Squire" due to the honest example he set and this is just touching lightly on his many involvements. But, he was a farmer!

Each of his brother's are likewise detailed in my up coming "Fields Of Clovers" book chocked full of human interest articles and stories that bring each individual to life through any available "paper trail" they left behind; while thoroughly documenting to and include even genetic diseases (when info. available).

Am including some wonderful (uniquely displayed) photographs -- several prior to 1900 and must say the majority of faces are quite handsome.

Please contact direct for further details.
