This index is from the New York
State Archives in Albany, New York. These are all the Clovers
the New York state-wide vital record indexes for the years
indicated. They were extracted by Bob and Audrey Beegle in 1999.
I do not know if the archives has added to the index since then. This
an important list because this index is not widely available outside of
New York state. I am extremely grateful to them for
time and effort. The New York State Index is not supposed to
include New York City although I noticed a couple here.

A correspondent who knows I collect Clovers, sent me the information
that H. Clover (Harry) was buried in plot 359, according to the plot
Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church, Tottenville, Staten Island, New
York. Mary Hitchcock is in the same plot. Below her name was a W.
or W. Hopping, M. Totten. No dates
given on the plot map so I checked FHL film no. 17902, which is
microfilmed copy of Staten Island Gravestone Inscriptions. There is an
online index to this which stated that there was a Clover on item no.
1120. A check of this on the microfilm states that there is a post on
the corner of plot
359 which says Clover. No other information was given. It
to me that every time I request information on this, I get less and
less. I wrote to the cemetery a long time ago and
response. I suspect that there is no tombstone. I have no idea when he
was buried or who he was. Any ideas out there?
This Harry Clover above could possibly be the same as the one in this
New York Times published

obituary 15 March 1854
Richardson Clover http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/rclover.htm
Richardson Clover was a son of Lewis Clover
CLOVER, Lewis P., painter, born in New York City, 20 February,
1819. He was educated in New York and at the College of St. James,
Maryland. Under the instruction of William Page he studied painting,
and afterward engraving for three years under Asher born Durand. After
this he adopted painting as a profession and followed it successfully
for several years in New York and Baltimore. He was elected an
associate of the National academy of design in 1840. Through the
influence of Chief-Justice Taney he was led to enter the ministry of
the Protestant Episcopal church, was ordained deacon in 1850, and
afterward entered the priesthood. He has been rector of churches in
Lexington, Virginia, Springfield, Illinois, and elsewhere. In 1858 he
received the degree of D. D. from the University of Kentucky. The
titles of some of his best-known paintings are "The Rejected Picture,"
"The Idle Man," "Repose by Moonlight," and "The Phrenologist." These
were all exhibited in the National academy of design. The American
reprint of Burnet's "Practical Hints on Composition in Painting"
(Philadelphia, 1853) was edited by Dr. Clover, who furnished the
etchings that illustrate the book. He has published numerous sermons
and addresses, notably one on the death of Chief Justice Taney (1864),
which is largely quoted in Tyler's memoirs.

Lewis P. Clover
His obituary shows that Abraham Clover was born at Ashford, in
Kent Co., England. He was about 49 years old at his death, in 1849. He
was apparently a member of the church at Turin at the time of his
death. He left a widow and eight children.
On the website for Lewis Co., NY, his name appears as part of a
presbytery which organized a new church at Lowville.
Church and Family History Research Assistance for Lewis County, New York
WEST TURIN (1834)
The West Turin Church was formed by members who withdrew from the Turin
Church, in 1834, under very trying circumstances. Charges were brought
against about twenty members, who refused to fellowship the churches of
the Black River Association because it had adopted the modern mission
system. These twenty members claimed the identity of the church, and
soon increased to forty in number. A detailed account of the trouble is
given in the Signs of the Times, 1834, pp. 232-237.
SURNAMES OF MEMBERS:
Carter, Clark, Cone, Kentnen, Lyman, Miller, Myers, Payne, Rayan,
Salmon, Tolles, Webb (very incomplete list due to loss of records).
Ebenezer, at Lowville, was organized into a distinct church on Monday,
July 11, 1836, by about 25 or 30 brethren and sisters who had been
dismissed for that purpose from the West Turin Church, of which Elder
Martin Salmon was pastor. The presbytery was composed of Elder Martin
Salmon and Bro. Enoch Lyman from West Turin Church; Bro. Abraham Clover
from Ebenezer Church at Utica; and Elder Gilbert Beebe from New Vernon
Church. Elder Evan J. Williams was chosen as pastor.
