Notes for Samuel ("little Sammy") Clark
Emma Jane (Clark) Petitt when interviewed by Phil McBrayer in the late 60's said that her mother was Susie Jones, and her father Sammy Clark, who died when she was 2, her stepfather Bill John Dehart. Emma would have been 2 years old in late 1887 to 1888. Sammy would have been about 25 years old.
Since "little Sammy" did not become a head-of-household until 1882, and died before 1890, he does not appear as a head of household in any census.
1885 tax lists of Rowan Co. lists on p. 8:
Clarke, Saml Jr., 60 acres, neighbor John Black, 1 male over 21, no children 6-20. (People in other categories are not enumerated. The "Jr." is to distinguish this Samuel from his uncle Samuel F. Clark.)
(See Notes for Susie's second husband, William Paul Dehart, for the 1900 census reading which includes the children of this Samuel Clark.)
Notes for Mary Susan ("Susie") Jones
Joint stone in Black-Trent Cemetery on Trent Ridge says "Susie Dehart May 3, 1866 - Oct 23, 1930 : W. P. Dehart Jan 14, 1854 - May 25, 1922".
Her death certificate (Vol. 58, #28607 ) records Mary S. Dehart, age 64 years 4 months 19 days, born 3 June 1866 in Kentucky, died 22 Oct 1930 in Elliottsville, Rowan Co., Ky, widowed, late husband Bill John Dehart, father James Jones, mother’s maiden name Emily Jones, both born in Ky, cause of death typhoid, informant Rosa Wright, Clayton, Ky, burial in Black Cemetery, undertaker Julius Trent.
In April 1930 she is enumerated with her three youngest children, but Jesse is listed as head of household, see his notes.
