Thanks for trying Stephanie. You were trying to help me find Richard about 9 yrs ago. Maybe that is why your notes have him. Emily remaried in 1864 so if Richard remarried he could be anywhere with any wife. Wibur's census' say his father was born in NY,PA,& OH. I need to connect Richard to wife Emily Butler or son Wilbur in the 1850's in either MI or WI. If course, that was before records were kept. A Richard Clute got a land grant in Adams Co. near Mauston, WI in 1860, but I can find nothing in census or anything else. Suggestions are welcome. It is good hearing from you again.
