My Clarsons come from Tamworth, Staffs, and my earliest record is the marriage of James CLARSON to Mary BELL in 1739.
Two members of this family emigrated to Richland Co, WI in the late 1850s. They were James Willis CLARSON and his wife Mary Jane VAN ALSTINE (who later moved to Baltimore, Maryland); and his brother John CLARSON and John's wife Anna COOK. John and Anna's children were James Sidney; John; Henry Robert; Annie May and Charles Arthur.
I am interested in hearing from anyone who has a CLARSON connection.
