Society, 1934, reprint vol 1 and 3 only. Baltimore:
Genealogical Pub Co., 1964. p 292. (9041 is vol 1: 1727-1775,
9042 is vol 2: 1785-1808.) Phillip Clem is also shown in the
IGI as the father of Phillip Clem, b 1754, NY. I have talked
with the person who entered this file in the IGI and she states
that this Phillip Clem was born in 1723 in NY and that the Clem
[Klum] family of this Phillip came to America with the original
Palatines. I have gone over lists of immigrants in the first
immigration and could not find a record of that family's
arrival. I now doubt the connection because James Clem states
that his grandfather knew Phillip and that he was from the old
country. Phillip evidently settled in what was to become Henry
County, Kentucky shortly after his arrival, again according to
James Clem. The region was part of Virginia at the time and
was Indian country. One would imagine that life was difficult
to say the least as this area was not settled until the late
18th century. I have only one problem with the history of
Phillip Clem as listed here. If Phillip immigrated in 1741 or
1747 he would have to have been of majority. That would make
his birth date circa 1720-30. He fathered his last child in
1794. I know that it is possible for a person to produce
offspring relatively late in life but this is very late. Even
if he was born in 1730 he would have been 64 years old at the
birth of the last child. The death of John W. Clem in 1829
would correspond to a large span of reproduction, if John had a
normal life span. According to Salts, Phillip Clem appears in a
"List of Men Living in Lower District Dunsmore County Under the
Command of Joseph Bowman" in "Revolutionary War Records,
Virginia" published by Dr. Gaius Brumbaugh. Again Salts, there
is also in Harrison County, Virginia (sic), in the 1785 list, a
Phillip Clem, with six white souls. Harrison County, West
Virginia was formed in 1784, so the above list must be from
West Virginia and not Virginia. Harrison County is just about
the entire width of Ohio from Henry County, Kentucky. My
assumption is that Phillip probably moved west after 1785 but
before 1792 which is the year that Kentucky was formed.

The following is a transcription from Will Book A, Henry Co.,
Kentucky. I have done my best to record this as it is written:
