Conrad Clock, son of Jacob Conrad Clock, was born in 1796 in New York State and he was married to Leanny. Conrad's Pickering petition of 1825 stated he had four boys and one girl. Conrad had another petition in 1834 in Brock township, Ontario County.
Some known children of Conrad and Leanny Clock were:
1. David, whose sponsors were David and Diadema Diver Clock was recorded as "almost 3 years old", St. James Parish, 10 Jul 1820Some proposed children of Conrad and Leanny Clock are:
A David Clock, age 64 in the 1881 census, was listed as German and a labourer living with the family of Frederick Stevens, farmer, German and his family in Niagara.
A David Clock, pauper, died 21 May 1897, reportedly age 82, Southwold township, at the Elgin County House of Refuge.
2. George Simeon, whose sponsors were George and Margaret Clock Anderson, was recorded as 16 months old, St. James Parish, 10 Jul 1820. He has never been found in a census.
1. William Clock, born 1822 and Eliza Anderson were married by the Rev. Ezra Adams, Wesleyan Methodist minister in King township, 6 Jun 1845. The witnesses were Jacob and Charles Anderson (possibly brother of Eliza Anderson).
William and Eliza Anderson Clock lived in Euphrasia and Artemesia townships, Grey County and had the following children:1. Mary Jane, born 1849, who married John Richardson2. John Clock married Charlotte LaRush, 12 Mar 1838, John Culham, Wesleyan preacher, Etobicoke
2. John Jacob, born 1851 who married Margaret Sophia Clarke and Mary Ann (Polley) (Noon)
3. Susanah, born 1854, who married John Gibson
4. John, born 1859
5. Margaret, born 1860, who married William Charles Lewis
6. Ellen, born 1860, who remained unmarried
There was a burial in St. James Cemetery, 22 May 1839, of a Charlotte Clock, age 2 months. It is thought that this may have been the child of John and Charlotte LaRush Clock.
It appears that John and Charlotte separated because Charlotte LaRush was found in the US with a Thomas Wesphall said to be her husband. Charlotte died in Fairfield, Iowa. She left no family.
A John Clock, age 50, born in Canada, carpenter, appeared in the 1870 census of Alpena township, Michigan, living with saw mill workers in a boarding house.
In the 1881 census of Nottawasaga township, Simcoe County, a John Clock, carpenter, age 55, Methodist, German, is boarding with a Holden family.
In the 1891 census of the City of Toronto, John Clock, carpenter, age 67, born in Ontario, Methodist was living as a lodger at the residence of William Gordon.
In the RG 13, Justice, Series D-1, Volume 1041, File 1081, under convictions, John Clock can be found. He was sentenced to death 23 May 1854 but this sentence was commuted by the Governor General to 14 years hard labour in the Kingston Penitentiary.
The death of a John Clock, 84, due to a catheter injury was registered 10 Jan 1904 at the Industrial Farm, Newmarket, Ontario. He was buried on the farm in grave #300.
All of these John Clocks are thought to be the same person.
3. Abraham Clock, born anytime between 1801 and 1810 (age discrepancy in the census) was living with Thomas Crosby, age 66 and his wife Nancy, age 63, in the 1881 census of Nottawasaga township, Simcoe County.
He was living in the 1861 and 1871 census with various Crosby families and described as a member of the family and once described as "can't read or write and of unsound mind".
4. Henry Clock was listed as a boarder in the 1901 census of West Nissouri township, Middlesex County, at the residence of a Duffin family and described as English. In a cursory review of English census there appear to be very few Clock families. In the 1905 Voter's list of West Nissouri his address was Lot 9 Con 3, Rebecca post Office.
Henry Clock died at the East Zorra township House of Refuge, often called the Woodstock House of Refuge, 11 May 1920, age 83. The House of Refuge had its own Cemetery but Henry Clock was claimed by Warren Tomlinson, a well known farmer in West Nissouri and was buried in the Zion United Church Cemetery, West Nissouri, where there is a large red granite stone to his memory. Someone tended the grave because there is a peony bush planted right in front of the stone. Warren Tomlinson was known for taking care of his farm labourers who were without family.
