Died in Chicago, Cook County, but residence listed as Sumner, Lawrence, Illinois. Never married.
All Census records are in Christy, Lawrence County, Illinois:
1870 Census - not found (he is not Alonzo Clements, who is listed as age 12 and name Alonzo does not appear again in records).
1880 Census - listed as Richard C Stultz, age 9, in household with Hezekiah and Louisa Clements. No relationship is given and the listed surname is a mystery - it is possible he was a ward who was later adopted by the Clements.
