Note: Concerning the above. Marcey Clonch wrote "It appears that when John Clonch died and Elizebeth Doss Clonch remarried to John Steed that he didn't want to accept her children (or her children didn't accept him or something) because the three children were dispersed to different families, Dennis went to live with his grandmother Nancy Beasley Clonch, while John and Elizabeth were sent by court order to live with Frederick and Mary Bruce."
