Death: 4 MAR 1892 in Culbertson, Hitchcock Co. Nebraska
Event: Address (Facts Page) Sangamon Co. near Athens, IL
Occupation: Seamstress, housewife, mother
Reference Number: 265
Note: Written by her granddaughter, Daisy Constance Dement Gandy (1872-1954): "Phebe Clark Brooks Dement was the daughter of a farmer, John Winans Clark and his wife Ann Isgrigg, who were English and descended from Revolutionary stock. Her father was the son of Sarah Winans Scudder and David Clark of Basking Ridge, Bernards Twp., Somerset Co., NJ. In or near the litle town of Rahway was the home of David and Sarah where their children were born. Their younger son, John Winans Clark in an early day settled in Bourbon Co., Kentucky where he and Ann Isgrigg were married in Paris, Kentucky where their older children were born, among them Phebe in 1814, who at the age of 18, married David Brooks of Kentucky, a first cousin. Soon after their marriage, they moved to New York near Albany, where their first child was born. Later Phebe and David moved to Staunton Twp., Miami Co., OH, and in 1837 to Sangamon Co., IL near the town of Athens where one of Phebe's older brothers had settled some few years before. In 1844, David Brooks died, leaving Phebe with 3 children, the youngest 3 years of age. A couple of years later she married Samuel Dement, a widower with 2 children, aged 5 & 8 yr. Thus at the age of 32, Phebe had a family of 5 children. Samuel and Phebe had 3 more boys and 1 girl, 2 of the boys dying in early childhood. Samuel died in 1855, leaving Phebe a widow for the second time, with the care of 6 children, her oldest daughter Hannah having been married a few years before Samuel's death. It is likely that Phebe continued on the farm until her second son was married. He bought the farm which is located in Yankeetown, Logan Co., Illinois. Phebe move to Chestnut and one of her brothers, a widower, lived with her for a time; then 3 of his grandsons for awhile. After the death of my mother, Father took my baby sister and me to her to make our home. My sister died within a year and I lived with Grandmother Phebe until my Father's second marriage 2 yr. later.
