The birth and death dates are best known information.

Jacob Clemmons (or Clemons) was the son of Samuel Clemmons. Jacob married Frances Meador on 9 Dec 1811 (Kentucky Marriages), but it might have been 10 Dec 1811 (War of 1812 Pension Application).

Various family documents alternatively spell the last name "Clemons" and "Clemmons"

Based on the 1820 and 1830 census records, along with names of known children, I believe Jacob and Frances had 11 children.
1. Elizabeth, b. 1812-15, m Benjamin Burdette on 11 Jul 1838, Breckinridge Co., KY d. before 1850?
2. A daughter (name unknown), b 1816-1820, d after 1830 census.
