INFO FROM RYAN MORRIS: According to family lore, Cleveland was a giant of a man, standing over 6'4" tall with broad shoulders. And strong as a mountain. It's been said that he could bend rail spikes in his bare hands. Once, while working in a field, he found himself the target of a bull rush. Thinking fast, he lifted a field stone the size of a watermellon over his head, crashed it into the bull's head and knocked the bull off his feet.


Cleveland married Jean L. CAMPBELL, daughter of James CAMPBELL and Harriet MARKERT. (Jean L. CAMPBELL was born about 1907 in IA 5.)


Cleveland next married Irene Mable BEATY, daughter of William E. BEATY and Cora (---), on 7 Nov 1927 in Vnton, Benton Co, IA.1 (Irene Mable BEATY was born on 24 Jan 1910 in Marengo, Iowa Co, IA,1 4 died in Nov 1978 in Walker, Linn Co, IA 4 and was buried in Midway, Floyd Co, IA.)
