In Search of the Parents of Barbara Klock

     I am looking for the line of Barbara Klock.   She was born Feb. 9, 1826 and died in 1910.  She was of Mohawk Valley descent.  She married Daniel Campfield, also Mohawk Valley decent.   Daniel was born June 11, 1821 and died December 4, 1904.  Daniel and Barbara removed to Walworth County, Wisconsin.  They later moved to Monroe County, Wisconsin where that purchased land in the city of Sparta.  Later they moved to the town of Wellington, Monroe County.  When they retired, they returned to Sparta where Daniel and Barbara died.  They are both buried in Sparta, Wisconsin.
     Their daughter, Lilia Campfield was born May 2, 1867 in Wellington, Monroe Co., Wisconsin where she married Rowen T. Johnstone on Feb. 19, 1883.  He was the son of John and Louisa (Thompson) Johnstone.  They settled in Reedsburg, where for more than thirty-two years, they were prominent citizens. Mr. Johnstone was for many years a successful agent for the Shadvolt and Boyd Iron Co., Milwaukee and an active member of the Masonic and Knights of Pythias Lodges. Lilia was a very active member of the Pythian Sisters and Eastern Star. She died in July 1928.
     Rowen and Lilia had the following children; Gertrude, wife of Frank B. Kemp, Atlanta, Georgia - they have one adopted daughter, Mary Jane; Mable, wife of Milton L. Woodward, Detroit - one child Virginia May; Rowen Thompson, Jr., of Pontiac, Michigan who married  Mildred Johnson.
      There is a lot of information on Internet on the descendants of Daniel Campfield.  I have been unable to find the parents of this Barbara Klock Campfield so I can add this information to my family tree.  I have seen the name Campfield spelled Champfield and Campbield.  If you have any information on the parents of Barbara, please let me know.

Information on Daniel Campfield from the Internet:  History of Reedsburg and the Upper Baraboo Valley, by Merton Edwin Krug, Publ. February 1929 by the author. Printed by Democrat Printing Company, Madison, Wis., Page 464.  Also from Ancestry.Com

In Search of Simeon Klock/Clock

     Simeon Klock/Clock was born in 1812 in New York.  In 1860 Simeon Klock lived in Manlius, Onondaga Co., New York.  He married a Margaret, who was born about 1812 and had three children; Norman, born about 1844; Mary C., born about 1846, and Laura, born about 1851.    
I have no additional information on Mary and Laura. 
     Norman was born about 1844.   He married a Roseland M., who was born about 1849 and had three children; Eugene S. and Menzo N. Klock and Blanche R. Klock.  In 1880, Norman and his family lived in Norwich, Chenango Co., New York.  I don’t think Blanche ever married.  If she did, it was after 1920.
     Menzo was born February 8, 1870 and died in California November 27, 1956.  Menzo served in the Spanish American War and is buried in Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno, California.   I think Menzo was married to an Edith for a while.  They were divorced.  I don’t think they had any children. 
     Eugene S. Klock was born about 1866 married a Mary D. and in 1910 lived in Oneida Ward 6, Madison Co., New York.   Eugene and Mary had two children; Earl D., who was born about 1897 and Norman C., who was born about 1902. Norman C. Klock, married an Emma. 

    I have not been able to find the parents of Simeon Klock/Clock who was born in 1812, married a Margaret and lived in Manlius, Onondaga County in 1860.   If you have any information, please let me know.
