Jacob Clearwater was married to Hannah Clearwater. He died in 1820 in Clinton Co Ohio. Jacob had about 22 children by two different wives. Some were Quakers some turned methodist I believe. Someone sent me info that Jacob had been removed from the Quakers due to frolicking. Since I am trying to trace his children I was hoping some might be listed. The Clearwaters and the Fishers were very tight and you see them together many times. Cephas Fisher, John Fisher, James etc. I believed that the Fishers were Quakers. I believe that the Rebecca I am looking for is his granddaughter and not his daughter as listing at the LDS site. There is a Rebecca Clearwater( age 20 listed on page 24) in Green twp Clinton County Ohio in 1860 living with the Bates. Also, within a page or two of her are Fishers, Clearwaters, more fishers, more Clearwaters, Allen Thompson and near the end I find a another Rebecca Clearwater age 9 living with a James Fisher age 80 who are both living with the Fletchers. I was hoping their proximity would indicate they still were Quakers with the Fishers. I do know that Jacob came from North Carolina and he married Hannah Fisher after his first wife Elizabeth Armstrong passed away.
