Emmitt Everson Clover
The community was
shocked and saddened when the news of Emmitt Clover’s death
came. His familiar face and figure at the milk depot on Reed
Street had been missed for several weeks, but few of his friends were
prepared for the news of his death. He was a tireless worker and
valued by his employers for his faithful fidelity to his work. He
had been a sick man for a long time but with a dogged determination, he
kept to his task with courage and sacrifice. Devoted to his
family, he served and sacrificed personal comfort for them, working day
after day, when he should have been in bed. His was a great
struggle to regain his health but the odds were against him and in
spite of every human agency and skill, he slipped away from the land of
the living in the faith of the great promise of the Master in whom he
had placed his life in surrender.
Clover was born in Clarion, PA, May 26, 1878. His death occurred
on May 17, 1926. When he was a child of eight, his parents died
and he made his home with his aunt, Mrs. Thompson English, who lived
near Sigel, Jefferson County. He came to Clearfield in March
1903. On June 30, 1903, he was married to Bertha Frost of
Brookville, PA, who was present to minister to him as a faithful wife
the last hours of his illness. From their marriage seven children
were born, two dying in infancy. Those who share with the devoted
wife and mother in this their great sorrow, and who will be of greatest
comfort and assistance are:
Harold S., Gerald T., Vera Mildred,
Madaline, and Emmitt Everson Clover, Jr. Also his sister Mrs.
Frank Walker of Pine Street. The sympathy of the entire community
is extended to these who are called upon to meet the sorrow and
suffering caused by his calling.

William M. Clover, MD
who all his life of more than eighty years was a citizen of Clarion
County, and all of his professional life was known, respected and
honored as probably one of the greatest physicians and surgeons of
Western Pennsylvania, passed away at his home in Knox, Thursday,
February 22, 1917, after an illness of several years during which has
he had been confined to his home. His familiar face and form and his
genial and inspiring intercourse with men have been sadly missed since
weakness and sickness seized upon his person and compelled his
retirement. We have all missed that quiet genteel, refined association
with which we had become familiar and from which so much of
intellectual and physical benefit had been received. But so it
has gone away and we bow our heads in submission. His mortal
were laid to rest at Knox last Saturday and he now sleeps until the
restoration of all things and the resurrection of all persons. The
following facts are gleaned from “Central Pennsylvania
Biographical Records.” William M. Clover, MD of Knox was a native
Clarion County. His paternal grandfather was of German parentage and
his paternal grandmother was a descendant of Sir Astley Cooper, the
great English surgeon. [Please note: This is an error, his paternal
grandmother was Mary Cooper who was born before Sir Astley
They were in different countries and is hard to see how Mary
descended from a man who was not yet born. This is one of those Clover
myths.] His grandparents on his mother’s side were of Scotch
Dr. Clover received his education principally in the schools and
colleges of his own state, attending eleven terms of lectures in the
medical college of Cincinnati, Ohio; Cleveland, Ohio; Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania; and New York City, New York. He is of the school of
Regular Practitioners; graduated three times MD and once CM. He
taken several special courses on the eye, ear, nose, and throat,
physical diagnosis, and a microscopic course on histology and
pathological anatomy and a six months term in the cancer hospital. The
Doctor is a member of the Clarion County Medical Society, a member of
the State Medical Society of Pennsylvania, and a member of the American
Medical Association. In the above cited work which was published in
1898, the following figures were given showing his service to human
healing and helping. He made 74,356 professional visits, treated 68,273
patients, has also treated 189 dislocations and 246 fractures. He
performed 978 surgical operations, met in consultation 827 times,
attended 3,138 cases of obstetrics. Again, the Doctor has
with horse 152,650 miles and by railroad 65,284 miles. Dr. Clover
three sons and two daughters, V.C. Clover is a mechanic; V. G. Clover
is a tailor; and C.L. Clover is a physician and is a well known
practitioner in this section. Miss Parma V. Clover, now Mrs.

On Saturday last, December 31, 1898, just as the old year was
disappearing into the past, the spirit of Amanda J. Rulofson, wife of
R. Rulofson, of Strattonville, this county, took its flight into the
great future. Mrs. Rulofson was honored and respected by all
knew her, a noble Christian woman. She was a friend to those
distress, ever ready to lend a helping hand in sickness and sorrow, or
to smooth the dying pillow. As a wife and mother, she was
on the lookout for the care and comfort of her husband and
children. In her last days there was no pain, no suffering;
work was done, and she peacefully awaited the call of the Master.
Mrs. Rulofson was born at St. Stephens,
Brunswick, 11 August 1827, and was the daughter of William and Jane
Emerson and was married to Rulof Rulofson, 25 February 1844, almost
fifty five years of married life. To them have been born eight
children, five of whom are still living, and who with the grief
stricken husband were present at the bedside of the dying wife and
mother as the soul went out to the God who gave it.
The children are: Priscilla J.,
Strattan, of Washington, DC; Jeannette A., wife of G. W. McCaslin, of
New York City, and Elizabeth
B., wife of D. M. Clover,
Merta H., wife of T.H. Hoover, and Wm K. Rulofson, all of
Strattonville, Pennsylvania. She was for forty years an
member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Truly a mother in Israel hath
left us. Appropriate funeral services with Rev. B. F. Delo in charge,
were conducted on last Tuesday as the remains were laid away in their
final resting place. Rev. Delo being assisted by Revs. C. H. and F. H.

Rulof Issac Allen Rulofson. One of the Most Progressive,
Citizens of Clarion County. A Man of Honor and Integrity,
Quietly Away and We Will See Him No More.
Ruloff[sic] Isaac Allen Rulofson, the
name that was
given him at his baptism, but who for the sake of brevity in his
business transactions, simply signed his name R. Rulofson, died at his
home in Strattanville, Pennsylvania, on last Thursday morning at 9
o’clock, October 26, 1899. His age was 77 years and
days. There is scarcely a man or woman in the county or a
in the town that did not know Mr. Rulofson. He was popular for the
simple reason that he believed in his fellow men and to old and young
was both friendly and kind. He was not a native of this country, as he
was born New Brunswick, British North America. He was a man,
almost from his boyhood days was thrown upon his own exertions as he
was left an orphan when but a child. Nature, however, had
him with a business capacity, intelligence in larger measure than is
given to most people and he made good use of his gifts. At the age of
twenty one years, he started out in li[f]e as a millwright and came to
Milltown, Maine, and built the first successful live gang saw-mill
which was erected in the United States. Some little time
this, his first success, he married Miss Amanda J. Emerson who
sustained him with loving care and wifely duty until last December,
when she grew weary and quietly went to the rest the Lord provides for
those who serve Him. This was a hard blow to the loving
whose devotion to his wife was known to all his friends. In
Mr. Rulofson was a man whose home was his kingdom and the happiest
moments of his life were spent in the family circle. There can be no
evil in a man who treasures home first and above all other pleasures.
After his marriage he moved to Elk
state, bringing along a large lot of mill machinery, erected mills and
operated them there. For some reason he was not satisfied and
removed to Strattanville, three miles east of Clarion in 1858 and
associating some other business men, built and operated a mill at the
mouth of Millcreek, in the firm name of Marvin, Rulofson, &
Co. They purchased ten thousand acres of fine timber
This mill has been improved and enlarged a number of times and large
sums of money amounting to millions of dollars have passed through Mr.
Rulofson’s hands. Some of the original partners have gone to
their last home, but the firm has carried its name for almost fifty
years with honor among men from the large lumber dealer down to the
hands on the mill. Mr. Rulofson has had in his life many
incidents of a character that few men are ever called upon to
experience. He was an experienced and fearless hunter and his
different experiences in that field alone would require more space than
we have to relate it. At one time he caught a deer by the horns while
standing on some floating timber and held it until help came from a
distance and killed it. His home and office are filled with
trophies of the chase. He was a man of fine intellect and was
thoroughly conversant with ancient and modern history. When called on
to address an audience or any large gathering, he was always ready and
to hear him once created a a desire to hear him often. The writer had
the pleasure of hearing him at the dedication of the new school at
Strattanville where he had been invited and entertained by Mr.
Rulofson. A man who had spent the greater part of his life in
woods among the cutters and mill hands would naturally be supposed to
acquire, in a measure, some of their language, but Mr. Rulofson was an
exception. His language was always and on all occasions
and pure. We have heard him respond to toasts at several
gatherings and when he spoke, every ear was strained to catch his
beautiful thoughts as they flowed from the heart to the lips. He was
liberal to all calls of benevolence and withheld his hand at no time
from a worthy object. He was a lover of fine horses and was
generally the first to come to town in a sleigh behind his handsome
team. Though elegant in his manners, he was approachable to all, while
his kindly smile was an open invitation for conversation.
Some ten years ago he was taken into
in the Methodist church at this place and it happened to be on the day
that the new church was dedicated. For more than fifty years, Mr.
Rulofson was a mason. He entered his name in Clarion Lodge no. 277 on
February 15, 1860, but he had been a member for some years previous to
that time. He wrote a paper entitled, “A Mason for
Years,” which is said to be a masterpiece. During
as a mason in Clarion Lodge no. 277, he held the honorable position of
Worshipful master, for five successive years. He was also a member in
good standing in the Independent Order of odd Fellows for the same
length of time and was District Deputy Grand master of that order for
fifteen years in this county. The funeral which occurred from
later residence in Strattonville at 2:30 last Saturday afternoon, was
largely attended not only by relatives and friends, but by the Masons
of Clarion and the Odd Fellows, from Corsica, Clarion, Shippenville,
and his home lodge. The funeral services were in charge of
B. F. Delo, assisted by Rev. Mead, the present pastor of the M. E.
Church at this place and by Rev. Peters who was the pastor of the
church when Mr. Rulofson was taken in as a member. The entire
choir of the Methodist church of this place were at the funeral and
added solemnity with their voices singing to God on High.
Beautiful floral gifts covered the remains and the room where the body
lay was strewn with the most lovely of natures offerings. The remains
were carried from the house to the cemetery. The pall bearers were Jno.
H. Brown, Geo. F. Kribbs, Samuel H. Lowry, R. B. Thomas, G. F.
Vowinckle, and C. A. Rankin, with a relief consisting of E. M. Wilson,
F. G. Kearly, Lewis Streng, F. Sloan McComb, B. H. Frampton, and A. W.
Corbett. The order from the house to the cemetery was as
Clarion Lodge, no. 277, F. A. And A. Y. M. Pall bearer with remains,
the members of the family and friends, the different orders of Odd
Fellows and neighbors. At the grave, the services were taken charge by
the Clarion Lodge of masons and the ritual of the Masons was used.
After the services at the grave were concluded, the orders mentioned
escorted the members of the family back to the home left desolate.
Among those present at the funeral from a distance who came to pay
their last tribute of affection to the deceased were Mr. Charles Neil
and Robert Brown, of Kittanning, Hon. A. C. White, of Brookville, and
R. N. Marvin, of Jamestown, NY. Mr. Marvin was deeply
and made the remark that Mr. Rulofson could not be replaced. The
following children survive their parents: Mrs. S. R. Strattan, of
Washington, DC, Mrs. G. W. McCaslin, of New york City, Mrs. D. M. Clover,
Mrs. T H. Hoover, and W. R. Rulofson of Strattanville. There will be
another missed from amongst us, one who we took delight in
seeing, one who was a warm friend, one whose warm hand clasp and bright
smile cheered many on their way. He had lived to a good old
having passed the allotted span of Man’s life and retained
his mental faculties until within a few days of his death. We
come into life helpless and leave it in the same condition. During the
interim that we live is the record kept. The years of life are to some
long and to others short. Mr. Rulofson lived many years but
the sake of humanity, not enough. His character and his life
been to help to many and his virtues during his life have built for him
a monument more endurable than marble. There is no gloom over
grave of a good man when he is buried. He has simply gone to sleep, to
sleep until the trumpet calls him forth to receive the
Judgement. Rev. B. F. Delo, in his remarks at the house, expressed life
in the following beautiful language: “Time sweeps on in
resistless stream. From the shore line, by an unseen hand, are thrust
upon its bosom lamps with the light of life born on its bosom. Some for
one brief moment to smile, then fade away. Others abide to midlife,
others still to four score years and beyond. The body sinks beyond. The
body sinks beneath the wave, the soul passes through the earth to God

Mrs. Rebecca Shannon,
September 1820, and died 6 October 1909, was 89 years and 15 days of
age, and one of the oldest residents of Clarion County. Her
maiden name was Rose, and she was the last of the family of the pioneer
settlers, Ephraim and Eleanore Rose. She was married 18 April
1843, to John M. Shannon. To this union were born nine

Hannah E. Clarke, of Seattle, Washington; Mrs. Mary McGee of
Emlenton; F. D. and S. J. at home in Gissler’s Corners. By
virtues and Christian qualities she made the world a little better and
kept her home cheerful. At the early age of 18 years she
with the Cumberland Presbyterians, later transferred her membership to
the Methodist Episcopal Church at Lamartine, in which she remained
until her death. The latter years of her life were spent in
severe suffering, caused by nervous paralysis, making her almost
helpless, having to use a wheelchair. The funeral services
conducted by her pastor, Rev. Wm. Earl Davis, of the M. E. church,
Lamartine, in the church of the Evangelical Association, near
Mariasville. Rev. Hardy, the pastor, assisted. Here her body
laid to rest beside that of her husband, who died several years ago to
await the Resurrection of the Just.
