* Clow/Cloe in Indiana Family Home Page*

Updated November 15, 2010

From the Highlands of Scotland they came, To the colonies, freedom was their claim. From the Tayside Region of Scotland, James Cloe, born ca. 1720, left to settle in Maryland. He and his wife Mary had eight children, four boys (William, John, James and David) and four girls (Susanna, Mary, Catherine and Nancy). William and David headed westward. William died in 1797 and his widow lived in Clay County, Indiana. David died in Ohio after 1820. One son, James Cloe, lived in Stafford County VA and had 11 children. He died there in 1806. According to one account, his widow took the family to KY in 1809. According to one source, one of the children married a cousin and changed the spelling to CLOW. Because neither could read nor write, the spelling for the family name in the 1840, 1850, 1860 Indiana Census was CLOE, CLOW, CLOW. Any information on this family in America would be deeply appreciated and I will share all information that I have been able to obtain. Any information about the Scottish background of James and his family and other relatives that were "dispersed" to other parts of the world, or connection to Jenny CLOW (of Robert Burns fame?)would be most gratefully received.
