Isaac and Olive, the parents, located in Miami Co. in 1809 or 1811; they came by river to Cincinnati, and there landed, when there was nothing there but the block house; they located upon the farm upon which the son Isaac now lives; here he cut out the first stick of timber, put up his log cabin, and roughed it in pioneer style, his nearest neighbor being nearly two miles distant, and in other directions much further; they were parents of eleven children, five of whom are living, viz., Hannah (now Widow Deweese), Elizabeth (now Mrs. Dye, living in Indiana), Letitia (now Widow Crane), Isaac, and Ingraham (now living in Delaware Co., Ind.); his death occurred in 1833, from cholera, his wife living till 1852.

M. Studebaker), Nettie (now Mrs. William Frazee), Priscilla (now Mrs. B. F. Hance), Horatio S., William K. and Minerva Ellen; Mr. Clyne has always resided on the old home place, has improved and cleared up the farm, and brought most of it into good cultivation, erecting fine buildings upon it; this land has now been in possession of the father and son nearly seventy years.
