|Abraham P. Clements|
A fact about the David Clements family I found interesting is this: out of the nine children surviving to adulthood, five of them did NOT get married. And four of those five were women. I must admit, when I was photographing the tombstones for members of this family in Irwinville Cemetery, I assumed many of the stones were for married women. Only after consulting census records did I realize the truth. This information was validated further by an entry in the History of Irwin County (page 517) by J. B. Clements:
DAVID CLEMENTS FAMILY

[E?] Clements, who married Mattie Cobb; Nancy Clements, who did not marry; Rachael, who did not marry; Julia [Judia], who did not marry; Susie, who did not marry; and Lola, who married J. D. Boatwright.
