Yes I saw the Obit but I don't have a connection with that line yet. and the
Clendenin who taught school was probably my great uncle John Seymore
Clendenin a brother to Chesley. This family grew up in the Erath area earily
1900's but there are a lot of questions. The parents died in 1904 and 1908
leaving some adult children and some minor children. Several of the adults
lived in Victor, Linglville and Desdinoma? Theodore taught school in
Ferris, Drucillah "Lizzie" taught in Hill Co. Charles JR. was a Pharmacist
and was murdered in Victor in 1917. Some of the others also taught in areas
around Erath. Cara Clendenin Wife of Charles Jr. maintained the homestead in
Desdimona and raised their children some of their decendants still live in
the area. I would love to hear anything that you might know about this
family. Thanks Carol Clendenin
