I’m looking for information on the parents and ancestors of Jeremiah (Jerry) B. Claunch, living in Jamestown, Guilford Co, NC between 1840-1870, and possibly showing up in Greene, TN in 1880 (living near his son, Harper).
He appears to have been born around 1816, was married first to Louisa (born in Franklin, NC), then Sarah Perry and possibly Mary E. in TN. One census says that he was born in Davie Co., NC., with his parents born in VA.
The name could be spelled many many different ways:
His son, John Sherman Clonch, of North Wilkesboro NC, was my GGgrandfather. Any help would be very much appreciated!
