More information as available

Clinton Dement was born in 1855 or 1856. I believe 1855 would be correct. He was listed as 5 years old on the 1860 census. The following information is taken from : "Dements Through The Ages A Family History and Migration". Volume 2 "Clinton Dement died in Arkansas on November 7, 1891 and is buried in Dement Cemetery in Wood County, Texas." (Wood Co should be Rains Co.)
