  • Notes 
    • MILITARY: Veteran of the War of 1812, served in Captain Steele's regiment of the Pennsylvania Militia.

      CENSUS: Searched throughout London Grove, Chester Co, Pennsylvania during the 1820 Census and there is no "Cloward" listed. The remainder of Chester Co should be searched.

      MIGRATION: The Cloward family had obviously migrated to Utah before Jacob's death in 1851, however they were positively identified in the 1850 Census in Iowa on 20 Nov 1850. Therefore it is assumed Jacob Cloward Sr and his family migrated to Utah in 1851. Elias Harmer's history lists their immigration occurred in 1852 from Garden Grove, Iowa.

      DEATH & BURIAL: IGI lists death 5 Dec 1851, burial 7 Dec 1851
