Rhoda Myers, the mother of Elias Myers?
In the papers left to me by my grandfather, is a small tablet sized paper from an unamed cousin. It starts on the front with the words:
Elias Myers my Grandpa half bro's & sisters names were Clutter
Twins - Oscar & Aldin
Art - youngest brother
Rill and Mancy
Aunt Mancy married (doesn't tell who)
Art's daughter is Icy
around Cousin Pearl's age (referring to Pearl Bennett of Fostoria, OH)
Lived near Locke, Knox Co
Grandmother Myers maiden name
Name Matilda Benner
Her Father's name was Daniel
Icy - Bun and Denny - Art's children
On the back of the sheet:
Father of Alice Rhomine
Son of step grandfather
Clutter by a former
The handwriting is legible; however, the author keeps spelling a name Mancy with an "M." I thought, OK, it's really "N" for Nancy. I found no Nancy Clutter. I searched the other Clutter names with no luck. But finally I hit the jackpot with Orlando Clutter. With that name, an entire mystery began to unfold.
I located in Ancestry.com a family which at this time I will not name. The family of half brothers and sisters were all there:
Mancy is Manceletta Clutter 1857-1931
Oscar is William Oscar Clutter 1848 and his twin James Aulder Clutter 1848 (oddly enough they both died in 1934 but in different months)
Art is Arthur Clutter 1858-1899
Rill is Orilla Z. Clutter 1850-1929
The father is James I. Clutter 1806-1896
His son from a former marriage with Elizabeth Larason 1805-1845 is Lorin Orlando Clutter 1832-1879
James other wife is Rhoda Myers 3 AUG 1815 - 14 FEB 1897.
I believe she is the mother of Elias Myers 1832-1912, my gg grandfather who has long been my brick wall. I think part of that mystery is solved with this crudely written note to my grandfather Blake Myers.
So far I have been unable to find any info on Rhoda Myers.
