  • Notes 
    • Thomas is reported to have first married to Martha Wiggins (born Abt 1745) in 1762 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. Bedell Family Notes states that his first wife was a Dorland [Ceylon H. Bedell, Bedell Family Notes, p. 13], but this could be confused with his son Benjamin (see below). Bedell Family Notes [p 3] also gives date of death as 27 Dec 1824.

      Thomas and Martha had two children: Sarah Clowes, b. 6 Jan 1764 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY, d. 30 Aug 1843 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. Sarah married Thomas Cooper, brother of Peter Cooper of New York, NY. Benjamin Clowes, b. 1 Apr 1767 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY, d. 6 Mar 1809 in Hempsted, Long Island, NY. Benjamin first married Sarah Dorlon (Dorland?), daughter of Joseph Dorlan, in 1790. Sarah was born 11 Oct 1772, died 11 Sep 1802. They had the following children: Catharine, John Marvin, Sarah Ann, and Samuel B. Benjamin was married again, on 16 Sep 1804, to Mary Bedell, daughter of Benjamin Bedell. Mary was born 19 Sep 1781 and died 19 Apr 1818. Sources beyond Bedell Family Notes are two Clowes genealogies, one appearing in NYGBR.
