William Frampton also had service in the Revolution and his descendants intermarried with the Clovers.  William served as a private in the Cumberland County Militia, or "Associators." His record is found in the Pennsylvania Archives, 5th Series, Volume 6,  page 565. He was under Captain Means, Colonel Alexander Brown, Commanding.  He served during the years 1780, 1781, and 1782.  He and his brother, Nathaniel, were comrades, and fought together. They were in the 4th company, 8th Battalion. Note that Philip Clover was in the same Regiment.

The information below is from the working sheet for the DAR application of Elizabeth (Jefferson) Trumbull. She joined on William Frampton's service.  This was sent to me by Deb Ciroli. Since it is a working sheet, I do not know the application number.  The information below was originally from Robert Frampton's files.

William Frampton born 15 November 1742 at Burlington, New Jersey, died 15 October 1829, near Churchville, which was later Clarion County, Pennsylvania.
William married ca. 1755, Sarah Staley, born 20 January 1755, died 6 July 1829, at Churchville.

John Clugh, born March 1760, died 1841, at Churchville, Pennsylvania. John married 12 January 1794,  Elizabeth C. "Nancy" Frampton, daughter of William Frampton and Sarah Staley. Elizabeth was born 10 September 1776, died 21 April 1821 at Churchville.  John Clugh also had Revolutionary War Service.  He was a corporal shown in the invalid regiment of Pennsylvania, under Colonel Lewis Nicola, was discharged in April 1783. This information is from the Pennsylvania Archives, 5th Series, Volume 4, page 90.
                    Francis Clugh, their daughter, married Philip Clover. They were the parents of John Clugh Clover.  Clover.  



Index Problems

        The DAR indexes Clowe, Clower as Clovers.  Since a lot of their material has been published in other places and read with an OCR, even though they mark them as Clower, they still show up in indexes as Clovers. I certainly agree that the names are similiar but it does cause considerable confusion.
