John Scott Clubb

John Scott Clubb was born on April 29, 1875 in Halls Corners, NY to Scotish father, Alexander Clubb, and English mother, Jane Scott Clubb, both of whom were born in 1845. John Scott had one brother, Charles, who was a mathematical savant but limited in all other ways. Their father was a cooper and John Scott Clubb was expected to take up that trade. Family legend has that he would draw, presumably with charcoal, on the inside of the barrel lids. It is said someone receiving one of those barrels remarked upon the art, so John went to art school. In 1903, John Scott Clubb married Kathryn Renwick at Halls Corners, and they had one daugther, Elizabeth Renwick Clubb (Reed). Mr. Clubb worked for the Rochester Herald and later for Frank Gannett at the Times-Union. He died on January 29, 1934. He is buried in the Little Church Cemetery in Stanley, NY.
