I’m looking for the parents of John C Clemens b1828 in Ohio, married to Elizabeth Linville in 1856 in Indiana. I thought that Gasper Clemmons in Green County, Ohio was the likely father with Elizabeth Welch the mother. Or is there another Clemens the better choice? Thanks!

John C. Clemens died 9/24/1891 at Topeka State Hospital and is buried at THS Cemetery in Row 5 Grave 3. Background: The Topeka State Hospital operated as a hospital for the mentally ill between the years of 1879 and 1997. Prior to 1901 it was known as the Topeka Insane Asylum.
