My CLARKSON family arrived in Upshur County before 1850.  The siblings were with their sister Sarah who was married to Valerous J. Fidler.  There were 11 children in this CLARKSON family;  their parents were Benjamin and Fanny (Games) CLARKSON.  We believe the parents had died (although we do not have death records) while the family lived in Fluvanna County, VA.  All the children were born in Essex Co, VA during the early 1800's; the parents were married in Essex Co 28 Dec 1820.  I am looking for death records and obituaries for some of these children especially John Henry who died June 1860 according to family history.  Two of the sons Benjamin Franklin b 1827 and younger brother James Madison Clarkson died as local militia during Civil War.  My direct line William Johnson Clarkson moved to Preston County and raised a large family.  Some of those children moved west to western South Dakota.  Thanks for your time, Mary Clarkson Buchholz    marybuchholz516@gmail.com
