About Isaac Newton Clifford

The family lived for a time in North Ogden and then moved to Brigham City, Utah. Isaac Newton was killed here; it tells of this in the History of Box Elder County of which I have a copy. It quotes, "The first death, the result of a harmless dog fight occurred near the old fort. Nute Clifford and another boy were displaying the prowess of their dogs and all went well until a bystander became enraged and took a stick from a fence and struck Nute Clifford causing his death, almost instantly. The stranger left at once. No legal action was taken as there were no civil officers nearer than Ogden. Mr. Clifford is buried a short distance from the fort." (Note by Hila Parkison: In later years when our family lived in Brigham City, we tried to have the grave moved from the residential district, but never accomplished it. In 1916, the old home was still standing but soon disappeared). The CLIFFORD or WRISTON/RISTON FAMILY (sent by John W. Clifford)
