* The Clouse Family Home Page*

Updated September 6, 2000


The document you have before you is the product of a venture, which began in 1985, as a high school project. The most enjoyable aspect was when I was fortunate enough to be able to interview several of our ancestors first hand to gather the necessary threads of information in order to weave this document together today. I remember listening to Grandpa Clouse telling of his days picking cotton and writing numerous country western songs. I think of all the information and tales the names in this book could have told and wish I could hear them now, first hand...Last Christmas(1996), I decided the time had come to pick up the pencil once again and continue onward from where I left off over ten years ago. This time the journey would be much harder, involving hours online doing research and tracing down leads. Many of our family members have assisted me along the way, some close and some very distant. I met such "new" relatives as cousin Donna Pyle of the state of Washington and received much help from cousins Mil & Wally Polk of Texas. Wally grew up with Grandpa Clouse and remembers playing baseball with him. Dad and I met with the Polks, who led us to Alfred Hofeld, who in turn led us to Aunt Thelma Whitten, who Dad hadn't seen since he was a small child in Oklahoma. We visited so many sites on our one week "blitz" tour of Texas and Oklahoma.I hope this information about families will remind us how special our family is and tell us a bit about where we came from, during this holiday season. I hope you will enjoy this first volume and know that I am hard at work adding information for the second. If are interested in sharing further information on any of these families, please contact me. God Bless,Keven
