I have copies of Miami County, Ohio Probate Court stating Joseph K. Clarkson (b. 1837; d. 1875?) and Mary E. Clarkson (b. 1858; d.1875?) owned a house and 3 lots in Vernon, Illinois around 1860-1890 which were deeded to their four sons, Charles, William, Louis and Maxon.

I don't know what happened to Joseph and Mary. If they died in IL or Oh. Have been unable to locate any death notices or obituaries. I would appreciate any information anyone might have to share.
