From: Shirley Lindenberger Hazelwood - she says that:
His real name is Clarence Adelmar Frost and that Delmar is a nickname that he used.
Thank you for adding the information pertaining to his name. I got his real name from the adoption records from his son. After his first wife, Hannah (Smith) Frost died in 1880, their son, Clay Abel Frost was adopted by Hannah's sister & her husband, Alma (Smith) Amsden & Luzerne Amsden. The father's signature on the record for the adoption is Clarence Adelmar Frost. Clay Abel Frost continued to use the Frost name throughout his life. On the census record in 1900, he is listed as, Clay Frost, adopted son of Alma & Luzerne Amsden. Alma & Luzerne Amsden had no other children.
Thanks, Shirley Lindenberger Hazelwood #47265445
