    3. [S1553] Biographical review: Hampden County, Massachusetts, (Ancestry.com), 242 (Reliability: 2), 22 Mar 2017.
      JAMES CLAPP, the owner of a choice farm in Ward Seven of Northampton, which with its fine residence and out-buildings commands the attention of the passer-by, was born here on March 27, 1827, son of Henry and Nancy (Root) Clapp. His grandfather, Thomas Clapp, of Westhampton, died in 1795, while yet in the prime of life, leaving a widow and five children. Mrs. Thomas Clapp, who before marriage was a Miss Kellogg, died in her eightieth year.

      Henry Clapp, who was born November 5, 1789, was a blacksmith by trade, and successfully followed that vocation for many years at Roberts Meadow. He owned a farm of one hundred acres; and, being in other respects in good circumstances, toward the close of his long life he retired from active business. He died in 1882, at nearly ninety-three years of age. His wife, Nancy Root, was a daughter of John Root, of Roberts Meadow. They were married August 17, 1815; and during the years that followed their household circle was made cheerful and stirring by the advent of six sons, who became stalwart men with an average height of six feet. They were named: Edward, Nelson, Henry, Anson M., James, and John C. Their father in his younger days was also a man of fine physique, measuring five feet ten inches in height; but during his latter years he suffered from rheumatism, and was in consequence somewhat lame. Their mother died December 15, 1869, aged seventy-nine years. The remains of both parents are sleeping in the Northampton cemetery.

      Edward, who kept the Northampton toll-gate for many years, died April 28, 1867. He was the father of one son, Edward T. Clapp, now residing in Northampton. Nelson Clapp, a successful agriculturist of Westhampton, is unmarried. Henry Clapp, born in February, 1822, died May 27, 1888, leaving no family. He, too, was a prosperous farmer. Anson Morris Clapp is a carpenter of Florence, Mass. . . .
