  1. Gaspar CLEMENTS was born about 1746 in Johnstown, Bates County, Missouri (based upon other sources, this is incorrect, and Gasper Clements was most likley born in Augusta County, Virginia). He died about Feb 27 1815 in Johnstown, Bates County, Missouri. Notes and family data are from the book “There Was A Gaspar In The Family” Vol 2 by Helen Spurlin and Mickey Martin. Contributed by The Vaught Association. Gaspar Clements, s/o Christian and Catherine (Vogt/Vaught) Clements was b ca 1746. Gaspar left a will dated 25 May 1813 in Rockingham Co., VA, which was proven 27 Feb 1815. Gaspar named his wife Mary and his children Christian (s/b. Christopher as stated in will), John, Nancy the wife of George Crawford, Catren, Polly and James. (source—Item 8 - Chalkley) Dave Clemens In 1797-8 John and Gaspar Clemens had a survey made of their lands that they inherited from their father, Christian. The land lay on both sides of the South Branch of the Shenendoah . I have a copy of the surveyors sketch map. The only place I can find on the South River that matches that sketch is SE of Staunton where Folly Creek and Christian’s Creek empty into the river. I would like to find a plot map of the area to see if any of the surveyor’s boundaries match or resemble those of the present day. Can anyone help?
