DEATH NOTICE
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.

    Emmitt Everson 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.

Clarion (Pennsylvania) Democrat 3 July 1919
John D. Clover, one of the oldest and most reputable citizens of Limestone Township, Clarion County, died very suddenly at his home, near Heidrick Junction, last Sunday morning, 29 June 1919, aged 89 years. Mr. Clover had not been sick but the report states that when his aged sister, with whom he made his home, called him for breakfast, he started to get up and dress, but delaying his coming, his sister went to see the cause of his delay and found his body, but the spirit had taken its flight.  Mr. Clover was a member of a remarkable family of three brothers and two sisters.  One brother, Isaac W. Clover, of Shannandale, is the youngest of the family and is the only one of the five who married, the other four having resided on the old homestead as a family of brothers and sisters. There remains of these four a sister, aged 91 years.  Mr. Clover, the deceased, was a man of great probity of character, an honorable Christian gentleman, and had the confidence of those who knew him.  He and his brothers and sisters have been practical farmers all their lives, continuing right on where their father and mother ceased work when they left this world.  We are informed the deceased was a member of Pisgah Presbyterian Church of Corsica where the interment took place, the funeral being held on Tuesday last. 

Clarion (Pennsylvania) Democrat 1 March 1917
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 is.  He has gone away and we bow our heads in submission.  His mortal remains 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 Commemorative Biographical Records.” William M. Clover, MD of Knox was a native of 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 Cooper.  They were in different countries and  is hard to see how Mary could be 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 origin.  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 has 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 has performed 978 surgical operations, met in consultation 827 times, attended 3,138 cases of obstetrics.  Again, the Doctor has traveled with horse 152,650 miles and by railroad 65,284 miles.  Dr. Clover has 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. Mehrten, took a scientific course and then graduated in music in the Grove City College, Pennsylvania.  Miss D. C. Clover is the youngest daughter. 

Clarion (Pennsylvania) Democrat 6 November 1919
Mrs. Elizabeth (Rulofson) Clover, wife of Mr. David M. Clover, of Strattanville, who has been quite ill for several months, passed away Thursday, 30 October 1919.  Mrs. Clover suffered patiently through her last sickness, finding the Saviour in whom she had trusted to be a perfect Saviour.  She was a daughter of Ruloff and Amanda Ruloffson[sic], and was born 10 August 1852, at Beechbottom.  When her father moved to Strattanville, she came with the family and that was her home almost all her life except a few years she resided in Clarion.  She was united in marriage with David M. Clover, of Strattonville, in 1880, and Mr. Clover now survives with the following children: Mrs. E. B. Corbett, and Mrs. H. W. Baker, of Strattanville, and Ruloff Clover of Pittsburgh. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and one great grandchild, and leaves two sisters and one brother, namely Mrs. Jeannette McCaslin, Westwood, NJ, Mrs. Merta Hoover, Franklin, and Wm Rulofson, Brookville.  Mrs. Clover has been a member of the ME Church for many years and was a lady of most genial and kindly Christian spirit. She seemed always to be bright, cheerful and happy and trying to help others to be the same.  She was always ready to do a kindness or service for anyone in trouble or sorrow. She made a host of friends who will mourn her departure.  At the time of her demise she still retained her membership in the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Clarion, where she was held in high esteem by all who knew her.  Her funeral was held Sunday, November 2, at the home of the daughter, Mrs. H. W. Baker, the services being conducted by Rev. W. R. Ross, pastor of the Strattanville M. E. Church, and the interment was made in the Strattanville cemetery.

Louis S. Clover, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Clover of Strattonville, was shot near Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Sunday, 15 December 1907.  The story of his shooting is told by a Bartlesville paper from which we gather the following facts: The murder was committed by Alexander Rozsa, a Hungarian employee of the Bartlesville smelter, near the boarding house on lease 44, about 6 miles west of the city, on the Osage Reservation.  Rozsa is said to have been drunk at the time the deed was committed. The details of the crime, as near as can be learned, are that Rozsa took his shotgun and started out hunting Sunday morning, December 15, at about 9:00. About that hour, he was met by another smelter employee who asked him if he was going hunting and Rozsa replied: “Yes, and I’ll hunt you, too.” at the same time pointing his gun at the man.  Later he met clover and his brother-in-law who were in a rig driving toward the city.  Rozsa is reported to have entered the rig and all three drove to lease 44 where the murder occurred.  No description of how it did occur or of the motive for the crime is given. Clover’s death was caused by a gun shot wound, the weapon being an ordinary shotgun, loaded with no. 6 shot and fired at close range.  The right shoulder was shattered and a gaping wound was made therein, some of the shot, it is believed, being deflected down toward the left breast.  Dr Suton dressed Clover’s wound and he was later taken to the hospital in Bartlesville and further attention was given him, but he could not survive, passing away Monday morning at about 2 o’clock.  Rozsa was arrested Sunday afternoon by Chief of Police Wm. L. Turner and deputy Constable Wilson about 4 miles from Bartlesville in the Osage Reservation.  The officers overtook him as he was crossing the road in the direction of a thicket and called on him to surrender, but he paid no attention and Wilson discharged his revolver in the ground at his side.  Turner had a Winchester and “drew” on Rozsa when he surrendered.  When taken, Rozsa’s Colt revolver was cocked and ready for action.  He was turned over to Sheriff Jordan who telegraphed Sheriff Bird of Pawhuska in whose jurisdiction the murder occurred and  Rozsa will be taken to Pawhuska for trial.  The prisoner has two sons in Hungary, aged 21 and 26 years.  His wife died some years ago.  Louis S. Clover was born near Strattanville, Pennsylvania, 5 January 1882.  He was married and leaves his wife and a babe a few weeks old.  He was a member of the Knights of Pythias order, belonging to an eastern lodge. The local lodge of the order did everything possible for their deceased brother and his wife and saw that the remains received proper sepulture.  His parents and friends and his bereaved wife and children have the sympathy of all.

Mrs. Lavina Downs.  On Monday, 9 September 1907, at her late home near Kingsville, was held the funeral service of Mrs. Lavina Downs.  She was a highly esteemed resident of that community, well known among a host of friends. Her death took place on Thursday, September 6, after an illness of several weeks duration. A large number of relatives and friends mourn her loss.  Her husband preceded her almost exactly two months before her death. The funeral services were conducted in the absence of her regular pastor by the Rev. W. W. Frey, pastor of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brookville.  Interment was made in the family burial ground nearby.  Her age was 83 years, 5 months, 23 days.    
    Mrs. Lavina Downs, nee Orr, was born 15 March 1824, in Kittanning. While she was yet quite young, her parents moved to Clarion County near Kingsville and in this same locality she lived ever since.  About 65 years ago, she was united in marriage to Robert Downs.  To this union were born nine children, six of whom are still living as follows: Mrs. Kate Clover of Sykesville; Mrs. Samuel Hepler, Frogtown; William, at home; Mrs. Harvey Moore, Corsica; Mrs. Ben Coleman, Summerville, and Miss Nanie, at home.  There are also 16 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren living.  Grandma Downs, as she was affectionately called, was a consistent member of the Protestant Methodist church for about 53 years, a record but seldom equaled and in her daily life she continually revealed by her humble but faithful life the sincerity of her Christian profession.  She was gentle and kind in disposition, loving and helpful to all with whom she came in contact.  Her family life was beautiful and harmonious in every way.  She leaves an imperishable record in the hearts of all who knew her. During her dying hours she found constant help and solace in her favorite 23rd Psalm.  Truly at the death of this aged saint, it may be said, “At Evening time it shall be light.”

Clarion (Pennsylvania) Jacksonian, 5 January 1899
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 who knew her, a noble Christian woman.  She was a friend to those in 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 always on the lookout for the care and comfort of her husband and children.  In her last days there was no pain, no suffering; her work was done, and she peacefully awaited the call of the Master.
    Mrs. Rulofson was born at St. Stephens, new 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., wife of S. R. 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 active 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. Frampton.

Clarion (Pennsylvania) Republican, 2 November 1899
Rulof Issac Allen Rulofson.  One of the Most Progressive, Public Citizens of Clarion County.  A Man of Honor and Integrity, Passes 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 a few days.  There is scarcely a man or woman in the county or a child 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, who almost from his boyhood days was thrown upon his own exertions as he was left an orphan when but a child.  Nature, however, had endowed 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 after 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 husband whose devotion to his wife was known to all his friends.  In fact 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 County, this 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 land.  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 many 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 the 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 refined 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 full membership 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 Sixty Years,” which is said to be a masterpiece.  During his term 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 his 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 Rev. 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 follows: 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 affected 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 age, having passed the allotted span of Man’s life and retained all of 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 for the sake of humanity, not enough.  His character and his life have 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 the 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 Master’s 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 who gave it.”

Mrs. Rebecca Shannon, born 21 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 children, three of whom are dead. Two died in early childhood, and a daughter, Mrs. Clover, died in 1898.  Those left to mourn the departure of the mother are Mrs. Elizabeth Huston of Emlenton; H. Of Cyclone, Pennsylvania; Mrs. Hannah E.  Clarke, of Seattle, Washington; Mrs. Mary McGee of Emlenton; F. D. and S. J. at home in Gissler’s Corners. By her virtues and Christian qualities she made the world a little better and kept her home cheerful.  At the early age of 18 years she united 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 were 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 was laid to rest beside that of her husband, who died several years ago to await the Resurrection of the Just.
