In Response To: Re: Sophia Sellers, the daughter of Adam Sellers ()
My relative's husband Oliver Clemens was actually the great grandson of James and Sophia. According to Doug, Oliver's father Dr. Elijah Patterson Clemens was son of Rev. Charles Clemens, who was son of James and Sophia. Find A Grave has a picture of Rev. Charles Clemens' grave in the Clemens Cemetery in Darke County. Also, Jane Shaffer, Levi Shaffer, and Mary Shaffer are buried in the cemetery. Elijah's obituary, according to Ancestry.com can be found in the Dayton Daily Journal, May 7, 1924. He is also in the Directory of Deceased American Physicians (1804-1929). He studied at Howard University College of Medicine.
