THE CRITTENDEN PRESS ~ February 1900.

Granville Franklin Clement, oldest son of Isham and Sarah Clement, was born in Charlotte County, Virginia on the 12th of November, 1808. His father moved to Kentucky when he was 10 years of age and settled the farm now occupied by F.M. Clement, his youngest brother.
In July 1833, he married Margaret Salina, daughter of Robert Phillips. They settled near his father-in-law's, on the road leading to Providence, seven miles east of Marion. He owned the farm now occupied by Berry Deboe, and prospered as a farmer until the death of his wife in 1872. They raised a family of six children, but they all preceded him to the grave, except Caroline, wife of J.M. Dean, of Iron Hill.
After his wife's death he went to live with his son, F.M. Clement, Jr., at Weston, and they were partners in the tobacco trade for several years and with varied success but in the outcome about 1882 financially involved and lost all. Then he went to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Dean, about 1886.
Seven years to a day before he died he fell on an icy porch floor and fractured the upper thigh bone on the left side. That limb was useless and he was a confined invalid afterwards. Being very nervous and shaky he could not stand alone entirely. He could propel himself around on a rolling chair to the different rooms and out on the front porch in good weather.
In early life he was very quick and excitable, and lived as active stirring life, but became more patient and bore his confinement with Christian fortitude. His wife and he were converted under the preaching of Rev. Templeman in the early forties and connected themselves with the Presbyterian Church at Marion.
While rational, the writer inquired of him and he said he was prepared to go and was trusting in the Lord. He was a devoted Mason and very anxious to be buried by them. A number of them attended and performed that task to some extent but they deferred the usual Masonic rites to a future time.
He first complained of his hip being more painful, got very restless, especially at night. We could see he was failing fast and on Friday he went into deep sleep or stupor and could not be aroused to take nourishment or medicine and remained so until he breathed his last at 6 o'clock p.m. Jan. 31. He died in his 92 year and his earthly remains were laid beside his companion, his children and many of his wife's kindred in the Allen Graveyard with appropiate service led by Elder DeBoe and the C.P. Church.
