Summary :

The Clement Family Papers, 1798-1968, are primarily letters of the family of Charles and Elizabeth Wood Clement. In addition to immediate family and direct descendants the collection includes papers of Elizabeth Wood's family, and the Pixley family (one of whom married Charles and Elizabeth's grandson in 1892). The majority of the letters in the collection are between family members whose roots are in Sherburne and Rutland, Vermont, but who lived in various parts of the country including Illinois; Tacoma, Washington; Reno City, Oklahoma; California; Florida; and New York. The letters tell of births, marriages, sickness, and death. They describe occupations, business deals, new homes and climates, education, and travel. The letters not only set forth information but are clearly part of an ongoing communication where questions are asked, plans are coordinated, and opinions solicited and expressed.
