  of 18908

This page is for descendants of John CLOSE of Nelson County, KY - the progenitor of my CLAUSE family in Louisiana.

Obituary:
JOHN CLOSE
Died--On his plantation, in this parish [St. Landry Parish], on the 6th instant [6 NOV 1965], JOHN CLOSE, in his 81st year of age.
John CLOSE was born in Kentucky, but inhabited our Parish for about 60 years. In 1815, he fought at New Orleans under Jackson, as captain of a militia company, where he was subsequently appointed Major. He raised a numberous family, the greater part of which preceded him in the tomb. Those who were aquainted with Major CLOSE knew him to be an excellent citizen, an affectionate father, an honest man and universally respected.

There is a lot more census information avalibale concerning John CLOSE's family and decendants. These are just a few that I felt would show the progression of the surname from CLOSE to CLAUSE.

John CLOSE of Nelson County, KY (son of Jacob Close of NC and Joanna FARROW/FARRAR of VA) married Euphrosine BARRE' (daughter of Charles BARRE' and Magdelen DECUIR) on Feb 27, 1810.

John CLOSE and Euphrosine BARRE had 12 or 13 children. Of their Children, I descend from Alexandre CLOSE, Sr. and his wife Josephine STELLY.

Be aware that on the 1840 Census, John CLOSE is listed as Charles CLOSE, and John's son, Charles CLOSE, is listed as Charles CLOSE, Jr. Following their entries is that of John's son, Placide CLOSE.
