Clement/Clements married French. Clement/Fawne/French/Merchant/Cole.

Note regarding my Clement line: Samson French I married first to Mary. In the marriage record her name is listed as Clem. After her death, Samson French I married second to Sarah Clement. DNA has shown that his first wife was Mary Clement, the daughter of Nathaniel Clement and Eleanor Colburn.

Samson French I and first wife Mary Clement had only one child before her death, a son named Sampson French II (he married Lusanna “Lucy” Root).

Samson’s second wife Sarah Clement was the daughter of Nathaniel Clement and Sarah Merrill. Some have assumed that his wives were sisters. They were not sisters but did have a kinship, they were 2nd cousins.

In the past some have speculated that Sampson French II named his son Clement in honor of his stepmother Sarah Clement, since she raised him after his mother’s untimely death. Actually, he named his son Clement in honor of his mother’s maiden name Clement.
