| Marriage|| about 1862|
Note: Lucy Clarkston's children were listed as heirs in Lewis Clarkston's probate.
Note: There is no known record of a marriage but Lewis' probate contains the phrase "...except the property reserved as the absolute property of the widow ..." So it is certain that Lewis was married at the time of his death.

The probate records and the census of 1870 hint, but do not state, that Lewis Clarkston had a third wife, or at least. a third family. There are two young Clarkston heirs, Charlota 5 and John 2, who are probably not children of Lewis' second wife Sarah as she was likely dead by 1869 since she is not mentioned in the estate. There is a younger woman, Lucy Clarkston, who is not identified as a family member but who was present during the sale of the estate. This woman, Lucy Clarkston, appears to be the mother of said Charlotte and John according to the 1870 census of Washington, Webster Co, MO. Also, after Lewis' death, Lucy sold land that Lewis had owned. It is likely she inherited it as part of her dower.
