    Clover Wills from Oneida County, New York   


        This index is from the New York State Archives in Albany, New York. These are all the Clovers in 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 is an important list because this index is not widely available outside of New York state.   I am extremely grateful to them for their time and effort.  The New York State Index is not supposed to include New York City although I noticed a couple here.
        New York City has separate indexes which are not included here. These represent the earliest dates of state wide vital record indexes in New York.

A New York Mystery

        A correspondent who knows I collect Clovers, sent me the information that H. Clover (Harry) was buried in plot 359, according to the plot map of 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 were 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 appears 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 got no 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 Obituary.
New York Times published 27 February 1949
Harry F. Clover
Havana, Feb. 26--Harry Frederick Clover, vice president of the Baragua Sugar Company, died today in the Anglo-American Hospital at the age of 62.  He was born in Muskegon, Michigon, he came to Cuba forty-two years ago.  Surviving are his widow and a daughter.

Mrs. Jane Clover

DIED---In Constableville, N. Y., January 6, 1881, Mrs. Jane Clover, aged seventy-four years. Sister Clover had for more than fifty years been associated with the people of God. Her attachment to her family and friends was strong and abiding, her piety fervent yet unassuming, and her last days marked by a quiet, peaceful trust and hope, and a warm desire to depart and be with Christ.

The hour of her burial was improved by the writer from Psalm cxvi. 15: "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints."

C. Bailey.

Richardson Clover
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.

15 March 1854, Johnstown, Monday, March 13, Louis Delual, son of Rev. Lewis P. Clover

Abraham 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
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.
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.
