I am searching for an Emily Jane Gold married to George William Clifton. The info I have comes from an 1889 Diary and states "Married Christmas Day." No year nor place. In this diary there is penciled in the town of Lehigh, Indian Nation USA and I.T.(Indian Territory). They were to have met in Indian Territory and she had a son George who passed away soon after birth and she shortly after. I am guessing this all took place 1888 to 1890. George Clifton worked in coal mines his entire life and died in a mine accident in S. Illinois. I have 4 different places of birth for George, 1. Illinois, 2. Alabama, 3. Tennessee and 4. Indian Territory. This is my g-grandfather and I am asking for any help you can send my way.
Thank you,
Michelle (Clark) Wetzel

Beckie,
I don't have a Harrison listed, but, I don't have a lot of anything on my G-grandfathers family. George William Clifton may have had siblings and your line could come from that. I have George married to an Emily Jane Gold, then to my G-grandmother May McDonald. They had 5 children: Lester, Mabel, Pearl, Bertha and my grandmother Mayme. May left when my grandmother was 3 and the children were put in foster care because George couldn't care for them. I cannot find a thing on these people past my grandmother Mayme and her sisters Bertha and Pearl. Does any of this ring a bell?
Thank you for your response,
Michelle

Michelle,
My name is Amy Reedy. I live in Florida. My mother's maiden name was Clifton.
Her mother, my grandmother was Margaret Ziethen Clifton, married to Charles Rex Clifton.
He was 17 years older than her, and they eloped on the back of a motorcycle around 1913.
He raised miniature collies in Illinois. Have you heard anything regarding this from your relatives? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Amy,
I'm sorry, but I know nothing of my ggf George Cliftons siblings or parents. I know of only one sister named Emma. None of what you asked sounds familiar. I wish you luck in your search as my Cliftons are being hard to find!
