Andrew Jackson Clingaman was born in Seneca Co., Ohio in 1838, son of William and Rebecca (Kleckner) Clingaman. William and Rebecca moved with the family to Fulton County, OH in 1853. Soon after the move, William was injured while cutting down trees. He died of gangrene shortly thereafter.
In 1861 A.J. married Margaret (Krontz) Johnson with whom he had a daughter, Catherine, on 20 Jul 1862. In 1864 his wife Margaret died.
In March, 1865, he and his brother, Daniel (1846-1951), joined the Union Army 195th OVI (Ohio Volunteer Infantry), Co. D. There is an interesting story behind their enlistment. They were in Wauseon one day where they were drafting men to serve. Andrew said "I wonder who the next one will be?" The next name they pulled was Andrew Jackson Clingaman. Jack said to Dan "I don't want to be drafted, let's volunteer. So the next day they went to Tedrow (Spring Hill) and enlisted. They mustered out in December, 1865.
Before leaving for his service in the Civil War he married Catherine Rogers, with whom he had nine children.
He died in 1902 as a result of a tree falling on him while chopping wood.
