Starling T. Cloer from Murray County, GA

Starling T. Cloer from Murray County, GA

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cloer
My grandfather was Starling Cloer (wife Stella L. Ballew). His father was Dawson Cloer and mother was Josephine(?). Brothers and sisters are Dawson, Marion, Florida, Eveline and Lottie. I have spent a good part of the day trying to connect him to several different Cloer's; however, every generation seemed to name their offspring Dawson or Marion. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

, I have partial information on this side of the Cloer family. I can take you back, but I have very little information going forward from Dawson and Josephine. Take a look at the very bottom of the family tree listed below. Dawson and Josephine are listed with their children.

I can go back two generation from George Washington Cloer, Sr. that is listed below. G. W. Cloer, Sr.'s parents were Elijah B. Cloer (born Aug. 1800, d. Jun. 28, 1887) and Sarah Howard (b. May 28, 1811, d. Apr. 26, 1900). His grandparents were John B. Cloer (born 1799) and Agathia. This will at least introduce you to some of your cousins. It will also help to clarify some of the repeating names.

I would love to add any information you have on Dawson and his children, including your own line with dates and locations. I am using Broderbund's Family Tree Maker computer program to track family history. Consequently, I can sent you this information on a CD-ROM if you have access to the program or to another program that can import a GEDCOM file.

I do have a few pictures of some of the family members, going back to A. J. Cloer, Sr. Family Tree Maker allows you to attach pictures to the names in the database. Consequently, if you are willing to share, I can include some of the old photographs that I have digitized.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Tom Champion

P.S. I am related through the A.J. Cloer, Jr. line. My grandfather was John Wiley Cloer.

According to my info George W, son of Elijah and Sarah (Sally) Cloer, never married-lived with Sally and Elijah then took care of his brother and sister (until she married.) George W. that married Anna Jane Swanson was possibly a brother of Elijah B..
I wish so many of the names did not duplicate from generation to generation.

The information I have came from some old family bibles, from talking with a number of the Cloers, and from census records. If you will check the 1850 census for Murray County, Georgia, under the name Cleurer (this was a misspelling by the census taker) you will find George (29 years old) and Jane (25 year old) listed with three children, Andrew J. (6 years old), George W. (4 years old), and Zachariah T. (2 years old). The family is also listed in the 1860 and the 1870 census with children being added in 1851, 1855, 1857, 1858, and 1866. There is even reference to two additional children that I have no information on.

Note that one of the children of this marriage, George Washington Cloer, Jr., I have only a birthdate of 1847 listed. I have no other information on this individual. Is it possible that this is the individual you are referring to?

Since most of the early Murray County records were destroyed in a courthouse fire, there are no wills or land records to confirm much of the information on the Cloers. Consequently, finding the family listed in the census has been the best confirmation I have been able to come up with.

Let me know your thoughts.

Dawson Walker Cloer was my great grandfather, his wife was Vianna Josephene Childers. Her parents were Allen Childers and Martha Rebecca Cloer. Dawson & Josephene's son, John Rembert, was my grandfather. He married Maggie Louise Beaver(s) 6 Jun 1910. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find any information on her family. I am still working on my tree, but feel free to contact me and I will be happy to share what I have so far.

Yes, please send me everything you have. I am Starling's granddaughter and am reseaching all my grandparents. I have the least amount of information on Starling's brothers and sisters and their children. Anything you have will be appreciated. I got my ancestry data from Tom Champion and he was a great help. Does not matter if you send duplicate information. Thanks so much. Sondra Cline

I have not received any messages from you recently. Consequently, I am unaware of any additional requests for information. I sent you everything I had on a CD-ROM over two months ago. You acknowledged receipt of the CD, but I haven't heard whether you had access to the Family TreeMaker program from Broderbund that is necessary to open the genealogy file on the disk. The disk also contained a large number of image files with pictures of different family members that could be opened with any image viewing program. Please let me know what you mean by this message and I will attempt to provide whatever information you want that I may have.

Sorry for the confusion. My message was intended for a James Cloer who posted several weeks ago and said he had information to share. I sent him an email at that time, but did not hear back. I was trying to check with James Cloer again for any information he might have.
