Jacob Albert Clowad was born June 6, 1854, in Payson, Utah, to Jacob Cloward Jr. (1828) and Susannah Mendenhall (1834). His father was from Pottstown, Chester County, Pennsylvania, and his mother was from Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware. There are several marriage dates listed. One says they were married on December 5, 1848, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. (Family Search says it was in Pottawattamie County Iowa.) Another account show that they were married by Apostle George A. Smith on September 30, 1850, in Provo, Utah. There is also a record of them being married in the Endowment House in 1851. At least we know they were married. They had 11 children 9 of whom lived.

The Jacob Cloward Sr. (1790-1851) and his wife Catherine Ann Pluck heard the gospel and embraced it in Pennsylvania during Jacob Jr’s youth. The entire family joined themselves to this strange doctrine, which brought persecution immediately upon them. They were baptized in June 1842. The family finally decided to gather with the nearest saints, disposing of their property at a sacrifice. They continued with the saints through all their persecutions, finally locating in Nauvoo, Illinois, and gathered with the saints in Nauvoo, Illinois. They lived in Winter Quarters in 1846-1847. The November 20, 1850, census of Pottawattamie County, Iowa, District 21, page 280, shows Jacob Cloward, 60, farmer born: Maryland. Ann, 50, born: Penn. James, 24, Penn. Jacob, 22, Penn. Hanna, 16, Penn. Eliza Cloward, 13.

Jacob Sr. and his family came west with an unknown company in 1851 when he was almost 62. This trip must have been hard on these older people, and especially on Jacob. At the time of the arrival of the Cloward's in Salt Lake most of the pioneers were leaving to settle in Provo, and so Jacob and Ann decided to go along with other pioneers and make their home in Provo. Jacob died soon after their arrival, December 5, 1851. Ann lived there until her death, May 5, 1878. They are both buried in the Provo Cemetery.

The Jacob Jr. family was listed on the 1860 census in Spanish Fork and Moroni, Sanpete County, in 1870 and 1880. Jacob Jr. died in 1888. He was a farmer and laborer. Jacob Albert Cloward was the oldest child born to Jacob Jr. and Susannah Mendenhall in 1854 while they were living in Pason, Utah. Jacob married Hannah Olson, a Swedish immigrant whose family had settled in Sanpete County. They were married on December 28, 1874, in Salt Lake City. They settled in Moroni, Sanpete County where they raised 9 children, all of them living to adulthood. Mabel Irene Cloward was the youngest, born November 24, 1893. Jacob was a prominent person in the community and served in the church. Like his father, he was a farmer and a laborer. This is an entry from the Deseret Evening News on Wednesday, May 26, 1909:

May 22 Today Jacob A. Cloward, a prosperous citizen of Moroni, was stricken with paralysis of the right side of the body. He is 55 years of age and has been previously quite strong and well. The weather continues to be quite cold retarding the growth of all the vegetation.

Jacob’s mother had died earlier on May 4, 1909. Jacob died on February 7, 1913 of chronic intestinal nephritis in Moroni, Utah, at the age of almost 59. He is buried in the Moroni Cemetery.

From the History from his daughter Annie Susan Cloward Lowry:

Father was born in Payson, Utah. He was a farmer by profession and a hard worker. We used to help him on the farm. I always like to go to work with dad. I always loved to be with father. We used to help haul hay from the fields. Sometimes, we would drive a surrey with one horse, we had the milk cans in it, sometimes it would get away from us, we about had a run away a couple of times. When the boys were hauling hay, we girls had to milk eight cows apiece every night by hand. That's why I've got such big hands. Dad used to say all the time that it "would take a man on horse back to keep up with him", another thing he used to day all the time was "YOU always cross a bridge before you get there". Father would always pay us for the things we did for him. Every little job even if it was just a cup of coffee or any kind of little favor. I remember, how I used to sit on his lap and comb his hair. I can just see his head and hair, he was bald on top and he would part it so that it could cover it with his hair. I'm a bit like my father the heavy set kind. He never drank, and we had family prayers in the morning and we would all get down on kneel around our chairs at the table.
