Source: H. W. Beckwith Montgomery Co Indiana History (Chicago: HH Hill, 1880) p 513


Abram Clough, Boston Store, was born March 23, 1805, in Kentucky, and is a son of Thomas and Catharine (Thomas) Clough. His father was a native of Virginia, and his mother was a Kentuckian. Thomas served in the War of 1812, and Abram Thomas was in the war of the revolution. Abram Clough spent his life till twenty-three years old in Kentucky, working by the month, and also worked on the Cincinnati & Dayton canal. In 1828 he went to Miami County, Ohio, and March 12, 1830, was married to Mary Swailes. She was born March 2, 1815, in Miami County, Ohio. After marriage Mr. Clough rented land, and in 1843 he moved to Montgomery County, Indiana, where he bought 240 acres in Coal Creek township, on which he lives. His log cabin was built from the remains of two cabins left by the squatters. He soon cleared a small piece and planted an orchard. Mr. Clough added to his farm till he owned 340 acres, most of which he has given to his children. August 7, 1873 he buried his wife. She was a member of the Christian Church. She left five children living: Bluford, Jasper, Drusilla, Boswell, and George W. Seven children are dead. Mr. Clough has worked his own way through life, and not without some degree of success. He voted first for Jackson, and still holds to the democratic faith. He is a Mason of long standing.
