Well, I never knew about the Frederick as a middle name, but Nicholas Clute and Mary Wells had Chester Evans, Frederick Gerardus,Mary Caroline, George Nelson andTheodore Wells.. The last four children were born Lafayette Twp. Coshocton,Ohio. I have their births and more information from a descendent and a copy of a letter from Nicholas. I see where he used F. as a middle initial, so I would guess we are talking the same man. His parents were almost surely.. Gerrit Clute and Elizabeth Fratt. Nicholas started out in West Troy,Ulster and then Ohio He married Mary Wells on 16 Oct 1853 in Ulster, Kaatsban,NY,
For George, my informatin is sketchy and would appreciate anything you might have. George Nelson Clute, born 9 Feb 1860 married Anna Philips. They had Edith ( Yates)Glen,Lena, Carol, George, Grace and Clifford. Again this all came in the letter of Nicholas..
