Claflin Family Genealogy Forum
My gggrandfather William Francis married Chloe Claflin b. 18 July 1819 at Albany N.Y. d. 31 Dec 1892 at Los Angeles, CA. Interred at Melvern KS. She was the daughter of Cornelius Claflin who served in the War of 1812 and died in 1886 in Michigan, where he had married in 1810 Miss Phoebe Ann Fuller, b. 14 April 1791 in Greene County NY, d. 15 August 1887 at Melvern KS.
I have not researched Cornelius as yet. I just know he married and lived in Michigan. If anything looks like a connection let me know.
