Married name
Lucy CLARKSTON
Note: That she is a third wife to Lewis Clarkston is speculative but based on real data. Supposedly Lucy was married to a "John W Clarkson" but it is MORE likely that Lucy was married to Lewis Clarkston since her children Charlota and John were listed as heirs of Lewis Clarkston in his probate along with his other children. Lucy's children retained the Clarkston name into adulthood. Lucy was married to widower Samuel Bozarth about 1858 and, after Lewis died in 1869, she then married Asa Gower about 1872.

Note

From VirJean28, Posted: 22 Jun 2007, Message Board for Bozarth.

SAMUEL C.7 BOZARTH (JOSEPH6, LEVI5 BOZORTH, JOSEPH4, JOHN3, SIMON2, JEAN/JOHN BOSSARD/1) was born Abt. 1828 in White County, Tennessee, and died Abt. 1862 in Missouri. He married (1) ELIZABETH ROBBINS 18 Oct 1851 in White County, Tennessee, daughter of STEPHEN ROBBINS and ESTHER JOHNSON. She was born 17 Apr 1832 in Tennessee, and died 03 May 1857 in Taney County, Missouri. He married (2) LUCY ELIZABETH ALLEY Bet. 1858 - 1860 in (Taney County, Missouri). She was born 22 Apr 1842 in Kentucky, and died 14 May 1917 in Dallas, Jackson County, Missouri.

Note

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.
