James Wesley Clelland

A Family History

James Wesley Clelland was killed during the Civil War on 7 Dec 1862 at the Battle of Prairie Grove in Arkansas. He was 24 years old. James left behind in Iowa a widow, Rachel, and two sons, Hiram Webster age 4 and John William age 2.

Rachel later remarried and through time the spelling of the name of James' sons became Cleland instead of Clelland. Their descendents have carried the Cleland name ever since.
