Michael Hoffman McClave
Birth: Mar. 23, 1823
Porter Corner
Yates County
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 1907
Chemung County
New York, USA

Michael was a Jack-of-all-trades. During his life he worked as a farmer, keeper of the county poor farm, miller, night watchman, and sheep rancher. He lived almost his entire life in the Finger Lake area of New York and frequently moved, eventually settling in Elmira, NY.

The exception was a few years in Montana where two of his daughters had moved with their husbands to start sheep ranches and his son Charles had moved as a miller.

He and his wife Eliza Jane had five children: Phoebe Marion, Isadora Norton, Sarah Alida, Caroline Gordon, and Charles Rowley.

He and Eliza Jane spent their last years in Elmira living with their daughter Sarah Alida and her husband Leon Drake.

You are not forgotten. I and other descendants of yours speak and write your name. I love the photo of you in Montana lying on the ground holding a dog. I wonder if you were as big a dog lover as I am?
