His two sons R.T. and William are both shown as "farmer." An adult woman, Sarah N. Johnson, an aunt, is living with them. Her age is given as 70 years.

[651] In 1866 many of the Claggett family moved to Illinois and settled in Lexington. Sanford's obituary reports that he came to Illinois in 1841. 1880 Census: Census Place: Lexington, Mc Lean, Illinois Source: FHL Film 1254230 National Archives Film T9-0230 Page 504B Relation Sex Marr Race Age Birthplace S.

Claggett passed from the life of almost helpless invalidism which he has endured for so many years, into the perfect rest. Mr. Claggett's condition has for a long time been such that death was liable to result from it at any moment. But not withstanding this, the inevitable shock that is always experienced when a human soul takes its flight leaving to the mourning friends only a lump of lifeless clay, was felt by his friends and the community. As a prominent business man and successful financier, Mr. Claggett is well and widely known. He is a native of Virginia, being the son of Samuel Claggett, and grandson of Dr. Samuel Claggett, all of Virginia. He came to Illinois in 1841, and located in Iroquois county where he principally engaged in merchandizing. During his residence here he lost his wife who left him one daughter, Mrs. S. J. Van Dyke, of Lexington. Subsequently he remarried and in 1854 removed his family to McLean county where he has since resided and leaves surviving him and a wife and six children, two sons and four daughters: W.H. Claggett, B. J. Claggett, Mrs. S. J. VanDyke and the Misses Edna, Blanche and Carrie Claggett, all of whom reside in Lexington. Since his removal to McLean county Mr. Claggett has been engaged in active mercantile pursuits up until the year 1882, when his failing health compelled him to retire from active work. During this period he amassed a snug fortune and upon retiring left his banking and mercantile affairs in the hands of his two sons, who have continued the business in their own interests. President of the First National Bank of Lexington, his last days were gladdened by seeing his son. B.J., made cashier of the same and the store formerly managed by himself, ably conducted by his eldest son, W. H. Besides these two branches of business, the many fine farms now included in the Claggett estate to show what his executive ability as a financier was. In the death of Mr. Claggett Lexington loses one of her oldest and best known citizens and his family and friends feel keenly the loss. He was a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge of Lexington and that body will assist in the funeral rites, which will be held at the residence Saturday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. Reese of the Christian church. Deceased was sixty-eight years old at the time of his death. During his long period of helplessness his wife, assisted by Evan Hughes, who was a faithful and efficient helper, was his constant and untiring attendant. She, with her family, have the sympathy of their many friends. --The Lexington Herald Recorder

  • @4Data:
    I am not sure that any of the Claggetts were in the Civil War, but the Claggett homestead is in Virginia near the site of the Battle of Bull Run. I have heard my grandmother tell of having watched the battle from the back porch, and Uncle Tucker tells me his father carried him on horseback to the scene of the battle after it was over, and that the sight of row on row of wounded and dying was never erased from his memory. My grandfather, James A. Claggett, was a plantantion and slave owner in Virginia, and accustomerd to the luxuries and ease of living common to that station in life. I can recall that grandmother had a much better than average education. At the close of the Civil War generally chaotic conditions prevailed in all the Southern States and on Christmas Day, 1866, the Claggett family of mother, father, and four children arrived in Lexington, Ill. Grandfather bought a sizable farm which was operated by him and his two sons. It is now owned by the widow of my Uncle Tucker. --Johnson Tucker Beasley

    [650] Sanford is missing from the 1850 census. Since Frances was 20 in 1850, and George was 18. then Sanford must have been born 19 years earlier.
