REV. JOHN CLOUGH is a native of Maine, where he was born in 1801. Losing his father when only nine years of age, he found a home with Mr. Charles Nichols, of Newcastle, Maine, with whom he lived till of age, receiving an education at the Lincoln Academy. In the war of 1812, Mr. Clough was employed in the manufacture of cartridges, and also assisted to carry powder to the American army.

He married in 1827, and in 1835 joined the M. E. Traveling Connection in Maine, in which connection he continued twenty-five years. In 1860, he moved to Union County, Iowa, where he now resides. Mr. Clough has served as Justice of the Peace, President of the Board of School Directors, County Supervisor and Township Assessor, and since he has settled among us has witnessed a great advance in the most material interests of this county.
