Kay Silkey wrote about Thomas Clarkston marriage:
Lewis was a Justice of the Peace. I have a copy of the widow of Thomas Clarkston's Civil War Pension, and there is an affidavit made by William Clarkston that states " I am a brother to the above named Thomas Clarkson, deceased and was present at the marriage of Thomas Clarkson and Amanda M. Johnson in Ozark County, State of Missouri on the 27th day of November 1856 as shown by the family record. They were married by Lewis Clarkson then a Justice of the Peace who has been dead for 41 years."
