    NOTES: The following is taken from the, "History of Idaho Gem of the
    Mountains"; James H. Hawley, Editor; Volume III; S.J. Clarke Publishing Co;
    1920; pp 397,398:

    "Clarence O. Morehouse owns and operates an excellent farm of one hundred and
    sixty acres which is situated four miles west of Emmett and is known as the old
    John B. Davies ranch. His birth occurred in Pottawattamie county, Iosa, on the
    7th of March, 1882, his parents being Martin D. and Selina (Robinson)
    Morehouse, who are natives of Ohio and Wisconsin respectively. A sketch of the
    father appears on anothe page of this work. It was in 1901 that Mr. and Mrs.
    Martin D. Morehouse came with their children to Idaho from Mebraska, where the
    family home had been maintained for three years. They have reached the ages of
    seventy-two and sixty-eight years respectively and nor reside in Gem county,
    their home being about three miles distant from that of their son, Clarence O.,
    and seven miles west of Emmett. Their family numbered fourteen children, seven
    sons and seven daughters, all of whom are yet living with the exception of two
    of the sons.
    "Clarence O. Morehouse was a young man of about nineteen years when the
    family home was established in Idaho. Throughout his entire business career he
    has been actively identified with ranching interests save for the year 1918,
    which he spent as clerk in the Emmett postoffice. In March, 1907, he took up
    homestead claim of eighty acres about three miles from his present ranch
    property, proved up on the place and continued its cultivation and improvement
    for more than a decade, or until 1918, when he disposed of the farm. Early in
    1919 he purchased the old John B. Davies ranch of one hundred and sixty acres,
    situated four miles west of Emmett, where he is now engaged in raising of hay
    and of cattle. This is one of the best known and most highly improved ranches
    of the vicinity, and in the wise management of his agricultural interests Mr.
    Morehouse is winning well deserved prosperity.
    "On the 28th of November, 1907, Mr. Morehouse was united in marriage to Miss
    Sylvia Clarkia Hopper, who was born in Custer County, Idaho, March 7, 1887. It
    is an interesting coincidence that she and her husband were born on the same
    day of the same month. Her parents, Henry Sigle and Frances Pauline (Galland)
    Hopper, were married at Challis, Custer county, Idaho, May 28, 1886, and now
    reside near Twin Falls, this state. Mr. and Mrs. Morehouse have become the
    parents of five children, as follows: Neal Francis, born September 7, 1908;
    Seling Grace, whose birth occurred February 20, 1910; Louise, whose natal day
    was January 25, 1913; Jaunita Evelyn, born December 20, 1914; and Bruce, who
    was born on the 19th of November 1916.
    "Both Mr. and Mrs Morehouse are democrats in their political views. The
    former has never held office except that in 1918, as above stated, he acted as
    clerk in the Emmett postoffice under civil service, resigning that position in
    order to resume ranching. The period of his residence in Idaho covers about two
    decades and he has become widely recognized as one of the substantial
    agriculturists and esteemed citizens of the community in which he makes his

    NOTE: Submitter has a copy of the genealogy of Clarence O Morehouse through his
    father's line which traces back to the Mayflower by two lines, one going back
    to Elder Brewster and the other to Stephen Hopkins, both Mayflower Pilgrims. It
    also includes the (Eldred) Eldredge line back to 1635-1645. The excerpts copied
    were edited by Zoeth Skinner Eldredge in 1896. (FILE: BLUE BINDER; HOPPER,
