journal mentions several families from Clark, Estill, Grant and other
areas of the Country and gives us a wonderful view of what daily life was like
at the turn of the twentieth century. Steven has generously provided us
with an index of all the names mentioned in this journal and the month and day
where they appear. The original submission was on several pages, in order
to present this wonderful data on one page I have changed the format, however,
the data is presented here in its entirety. I have placed Steven's

William Franklin Clemons was a popular minister in the Estill and Clark County regions of Kentucky. He was also a pharmacist and kept a daily journal in a small red book, marked "Physician's Daily Memorandum 1900." I believe that his family lived for some time in the Millers Creek region of Estill County. However, he also lived in Clark County and had relatives in Powell County. William F. Clemons' parents were Leroy Clemons and Eliza J. Kerr. I've been trying to piece together more information on both of his parents, but that has not been easy. Eliza Kerr Clemons is buried at the Log Lick Church Cemetery in Clark County, along with some other Clemons family members. However, William F. Clemons first two wives (of three) are buried at Mt. Tabor Cemetery in Estill County. William F. Clemons married his third wife, Nettie Craig McGuire on September 16, 1901 and moved to Nicholasville, Jessamine County for about a year, after which he moved his family to Bartlesville, Indian Territory (later Oklahoma). On July 17, 1904, William Clemons tragically fell from his buggy when traveling with a friend and his family to a Sunday School which he was establishing in Wann, Indian Territory and was killed. He was one of the first ministers at the First Christian Church in Bartlesville. The Bartlesville newspaper lists survivors as Nettie Craig (McGuire) Clemons, his wife; Leon Clemons, his eldest son (by an earlier marriage to Betty Fluty); Homer Clemons (by his earlier marriage to Betty Fluty); and William Wheeler Clemons, his one year old son by Nettie Craig (McGuire) Clemons. It also notes that he was survived by a sister in Winchester, Kentucky, Mrs. J. Price Osborne, whom I know was Fannie (Clemons) Osborne. There may have been other half brothers and half sisters who survived him, but these people were not noted in his obituary in 1904. William Franklin Clemons and Nettie Craig McGuire Clemons are buried at the White Rose Cemetery in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and his picture still hangs in the First Christian Church in Bartlesville. His journal entries below don't offer much about his thoughts and emotions like a modern journal might offer. However, he shares quite a bit about his daily activities, where he traveled, whom he met, where he slept (he seemed to be moving around as a minister and pharmacist quite a bit), and what the weather was like. There are numerous names which will interest other Kentucky researchers, and I will do my best to offer correct spellings. I cannot read all of his writing, and as things, or his writing, become clarified, I'll try to repost this data so that it is increasingly correct. If you have any comments, questions, or leads which may be useful to me on knowing more about the people in this journal, please contact me. I am very interested in learning the connections between some of the relatives noted in this journal and my Clemons line. He notes some people as cousin and uncle or aunt, but I don't know the linkages. I think it would also be terrific just to know more about the people with whom he spent time. William Franklin Clemons was my great grandfather. He died when my grandfather was just one year old. My grandfather died when my father was just six years old, so this newly discovered journal goes a long way in filling in massive gaps in my awareness about my own family's background. I hope that you enjoy this information and find it useful in your own research. By the way, I will note editorial comments of my own about various journal entries with an asterisk (*). An index follows at the end of the journal.

Went to Town in wagon Took Storm and Leon to town.*
*Leon is Leon Clemons, the eldest son of William Franklin Clemons and Betty Jackson Fluty (b. February 19, 1861 d. February 14,1896).
I do not know what the reference to Storm is.

Monday, January 8
Stayed in Store Boxed household to move to Clark* *
I believe that W.F. Clemons is moving from Estill County to Clark County in this reference. His second wife, Mattie Clay Reed (b. June 25, 1860 d. August 17, 1899) had died just four and a half months before and I believe that they had lived together at the Reed Homestead in Millers Creek. This Homestead was referred to in Mattie Reed's obituary which I have posted previously and which was sent to me by Wavelyn Ginter. I think that Homer and Leon Clemons, both still young boys, were living with Mattie's mother whom he refers to later in the journal as "Ma." His own mother, Eliza J. (Kerr) Clemons (b. June 14, 1834 d. December 16, 1897) was no longer alive. Eliza Clemons is buried at Log Lick Church Cemetery in Clark County, Kentucky =96 and her gravestone notes that she was the mother of Elder W.F. Clemons. There is no sign of her husband and W.F. Clemons' father, Leroy Clemons, at this cemetery. Many of the early references in his journal are to just staying in a store which he owned. He sold this store to T. H. West on February 20, 1900.

*Tabor refers to Mt. Tabor Church in Millers Creek, Estill County, Kentucky. This church was one of two with which William F. Clemons was closely affiliated as a preacher and elder at this time. The other was Log Lick Church in Clark County. He preached at both of them frequently. **A.C.E. refers to A.C. Estes

Went to Clarence Estes Stayed for Dinner. Came Home. Made fire in Store to sun eggs. * Cold Weather
*This sounds as if he has made a fire in his store to "sun eggs." I don't know if I am misreading the word "sun" or not. It might be some kind of expression which I don't understand.

Saturday, February 3
Stayed in store some. Auctioned Sale for H.E. Neal (sent check to J.M.R.N&O $399.22
* Went to church. Bro Lowry preached Sub. Prayer and Duty. Went to A.C. Estes with Bro Lowry all night
*I do not know who H.E. Neal was, but Mattie Clay Reed's first husband was Benjamin C. Neal (b. November 16, 1856 d. April 01, 1894). This auction may have been related to the sale of assets, or a home that may have belonged to the Neal family. Even though Mattie (Reed) (Neal) Clemons had married William F. Clemons, it is obvious from the journal that William F. Clemons was on very good terms with the Neal family.
Sunday, February 4
Came from A.C. Estes'. Raining Rained all day! Stayed at home. Bro. Lowry, Bro Mc and John McIntosh, Chilton, Retha & I stayed No Meeting. Turned Cold. Bro Lowry stayed all night.
* *The reference to various brothers must mean that these people were active in the same Christian Church in which William F. Clemons was active. I am not sure, but I believe that "Bro Mc" may reference one of the McGuires with whom I know that William F. Clemons had acquaintance. I think that the Chilton referred to is Chilton Neal. Neal was probably related to Mattie Reed's first husband or may have even been the son of Mattie Reed and Benjamin Neal. Later in the Journal, William F. Clemons refers to executing a bond as Guardian for Chilton Reed. Clemons stayed at Chilton Neal's home many times. The "Retha" who is referenced is Retha Estes. She married Chilton Neal on June 22, 1899.
Monday, February 5
Bro Lowry went Home Stayed in Store. Received present of Pr. Sox from Mrs. M.A. Neal Made up Pain Paint
* *Mrs. M.A. Neal must have been a relative of Mattie Reed's first husband, Benjamin Neal. In recording the words "pain paint," I may be misreading this but I don't know what other options there would be.

* I have no idea what he is referring to in this section and although I can read the letters in his words, I have no idea what he is trying to say. He is abbreviating something with the names and has created little numbers above each of the letters A., M., and N. and drawn a semi-circle from N =96 marked with the number 3, to A =96 marked with a 2=,to M =96 marked with a 1.

* *I do not know who P.W, and B.F. might be at this point. I believe that Phillip is Phillip Webber, a witness at his first wedding to Betty Jackson Fluty, and possibly a relative. Pine Groveis located where Todd's Road, Colby Road and Combs Ferry Road intersect near the Clark/Fayette County line. All that is there is a grocery store and post office now.

Monday, March 5
Came from Phillip's to Winchester. on train obtained livery and came to Price's. * Warm Cloudy rained some.
*I do not know for sure who Price is, but I strongly believe that his many references to Price are to his brother-in-law, J. Price Osborne. As mentioned previously, J. Price Osborne was married to Fannie Clemons, William F. Clemons' sister. I believe that after William F. Clemons' second wife, Mattie Reed Clemons, died, he sold his store and moved his children and household from Estill County to Clark County. I believe that Price and Fannie Osborne's home became his home base for a while and that Fannie played the role of surrogate mother to Homer and Leon Clemons, his two sons, until he remarried in 1901.

Thursday, May 31
At Prices. Jas. & I went to Post Office. Fannie & I went to Log Lick to decorate Some clouds. Jas & I walked out to Dunaways.*
*This is an interesting reference because this is the first mention of Fannie, his sister - and it is written as if she were in the immediate vicinity. Originally, I thought that the "Price" that is constantly referred to may have been Pryse McGuire, even though his name was spelled differently. However, I am inclined to think that when William F. Clemons sold his store in Estill County and moved to Clark County, he basically resided much of the time with his sister, Fannie (Clemons) Osborne and his brother-in-law, J. Price Osborne. "Price" must be J. Price Osborne - even though in several places in his journal, usually on travel elsewhere, he writes letters and refers to Price not as he usually does but as J.P. Osborne. I think that this may be part of his particular ethic in maintaining records of correspondence in his journal. The Jas. mentioned here is James Clemons, his elder half-brother, who also appears to be staying at J. Price Osborne's home, or better known as Price's."
