THOMAS CLOWES was born in 1840, in the State of Michigan, and is a son of Charles L. and Edith Clowes, both natives of Virginia; both died in Michigan, where the boyhood of Thomas was passed, and where he attended school - in Cassopolis- and where he remained until twenty-two years of age. At fourteen, he came to visit in Lake County, and afterward removed to Hebron, where, on June 12, 1866, he was married to Miss Mattie E. Johnson, of the family of Eli and Sarah Johnson. They have but one child - Edith. Mr. Clowes now made farming his principal business until 1882, where he procured a stock of groceries and provision; he also has a room for serving ice cream and lunches. Mr. and Mrs. Clowes are members of the Christian Church and most generally respected.
