HANCOCK, Isabella 2 3 4

  • Born: Abt 1802, Ohio
  • Marriage: KLEMM, Henry on 2 Apr 1812 in Butler County, Ohio 1
  • Died: Bef 1825, Butler County, Ohio

bullet  General Notes:

Isabella is likely the daughter of John Hancock [spelled Handcock], who is living nearby Isabella and other Clem's on the 1820 census in Reily, Ohio. Isabella's likely siblings, Jonathon and Joel Handcock, are also nearby.

It is uncertain if Isabella Hancock and the Elizabeth Clem who appears on the 1850 census as Henry's wife is the same woman. As Henry's wife appears quite a bit younger than he on previous census', it is likely that they are one and the same.


Isabella married Henry KLEMM, son of Johann Conradt KLEMM and Susannah GREENWOOD, on 2 Apr 1812 in Butler County, Ohio.1 (Henry KLEMM was born in 1788 in Kentucky and died in 1855 in Mound, Warren County, Indiana.)

Danville, Ill.: Genealogical Records Committee, Governor Bradford Chapter, Daughters of American Revolution, 1956.
). Surety: 3. Between 1807 and 1812, Johann Klemm moved his family to Butler County, Ohio, settled on 120 acres about five miles northeast and west of Hamilton, Ohio. He died April 18, 1827, leaving a will which he made in 1822. I have a photostat of this will and also a copy of the inventory of his personal property.

He willed his property to his "beloved wife, Susannah" and the "right of soil" to his sons. He mentioned his daughters, but did not give any of his children's names in [his] will, but I found at the courthouse in Hamilton, Ohio, where his eight sons had disposed of the 120 acres after his death. Here are the names of the children and whom they married:

1. George Clem, m. Mary Curry, Jan 14, 1808.
2. John Clem, Jr., m. Nancy Wood, Feb 8, 1810.
3. Barbara Clem, m. William Wood, March 1, 1810.
4. Henry Clem, 2nd. m. Martha Carmichael, June 30, 1825; 1st m. Isabella Hancock, April 2, 1812.
5. Jacob Clem, m. Rebecca Hill, June 5, 1818.
6. Susannah Clem, m. James Harper, March 18, 1819.
7. Samuel Clem, m. Nancy Hountz, October 4, 1821.
8. David Clem, m. Keziah Jones, April 17, 1828.
9. Nancy Clem, m. John Rickart, June 15, 1820.
