From :
As a youth he became a clerk in an iron manufactory, at Lynchhurg,
and doubtless studied at night. At all events, he acquired an
education, but injured his health in the mean time. John was left
fatherless with two younger brothers and two younger sisters when
about seven. When he was 11, with his mother and the younger
children, he removed to Adair County, Kentucky, where the widow
presently married a sweetheart of her girlhood, one Simon Hancock, a
good man. In In 1812, John Clemens was sent to Columbia, the county-
seat, to study law, and was licensed to practice in Adair Co., KY in
1822. When the living heirs became of age he administered his
father's estate, receiving as his own share three negro slaves; also
a mahogany sideboard, which remains among the Clemens effects to this
Marshall had always been frail, probably from lifelong malnutrition;
a "weak chest" and severe headaches. In desperation to recoup his
fortune and provide for his family he daily took handfuls of pills
and various medicines. He filed as Whig candidate for Clerk of the
Marion County Court. He made a trip to Palmyra horseback in the rain,
contracted pneumonia from which he never recovered. He died 24 March,
1847, in the upstairs apartment of House of Pilasters. He was buried
in Baptist cemetery, the grave later moved to Mt. Olivet cemetery in
