===============================================
There seems to be a deference of opinion as to middle name. John's mother Catherine's last name was Clemons, Clemmons or Clements as noted on several documents. Possibly it was changed over a period of time.
===============================================
Bill Dowell remembers about John Clement Dowell.
He was kinda independant kinda, he would only eat certain foods like Meat & Potatoes, stayed with Uncle "Bill" for a while, then stayed with Otis Dowell for awhile.
