Daughter of Smith and Mariah Barnes Ellison. Wife of Chaney Floyd Clauson, married 5 SEP 1876 in Knox County, Missouri.

—Mrs. Clauson's name was Charlotte Elizabeth in her son's obit. Charity appeared as her first name on her death certificate. She used Elizabeth on her marriage license and it appeared as Elizabeth in several of the Census. Mrs. Clauson had passed away 42 years before her son, so perhaps her first name was not remembered by person/persons doing the notification to the newspaper office since it appears Elizabeth was used so often. Likely they knew enough to know her first name was not actually Elizabeth, that it was her middle name and was used as a nickname.



Knox City, Mo., June 3.Mrs. Chaney Clauson died at her home in Knox City Friday afternoon at 5 o'clock. Funeral services were held at the house at 10 a. m. Sunday, with interment at Bee Ridge cemetery. She leaves a husband and four children.
