I am trying to confirm that Joel Clapp had a daughter named Liza Jane Clapp. (Or Elizabeth Jane Clapp). She would have had to have been his first child. In her census records, she always said that she was born in Alabama. Her first marriage record said that she was born in Jackson County, Alabama. I know that the boundaries of Jackson, and Marshall and Madison counties all changed from time to time. She was in the same location in Kentucky when Ludwig Clapp died there. She married first, William Foster and lived in Hickman County, Kentucky. She married second, James M. Humphreys in Murray, Kentucky. They then moved to Missouri, then Tunnel Hill TWP, Illinois. They then moved around 1872 to Trinity County, Texas. I believe that they moved there because family was there. Joel Clapp had died there. There is a Clapp Cemetery that is near the boundary line where the three counties come together: Trinity, Houston, and Walker.
Would you please look up in the German Clapps book to see if my Liza Jane Clapp is there. I am very greatful for your time and interest.
Sincerely, Mary Beth Woodall
