|About Clevenger Family and Takes Family
NOTE: MOST EVERYTHING IN THIS SITE IS PRINTABLE AND FREE. IT IS FOR BOTH FAMILIES TO USE;
This site is dedicated to my wife's mother, Aileen M. Takes.

Our Family Tree is of my wife's, Takes of Iowa, and mine is the Clevengers. This site is still
currently under construction: Takes, Tackes, Cleavinger, Clevinger, and Cleavenger
This tree was created from research done by professional genealogists as the basis of this
The information was extracted from their years of hard work to create a documented history of
both the families. The Takes foundation was created from research in Luxembourg. Mr. John
Tackes is the guru of the Takes and Tackes. (Shuster) The Clevenger information was created
from Sarah Clevenger's book, and the research of Ron Rose, James Weible, Cricket McCray,
Ronald Cleavenger. Roots Web and other genealogy data bases. Also, to family members that
have contributed, from both families, to their line in the tree. My goal was to create a tree
of both mine and my wife's into one massive tree from all this research that was done.
There is some areas that are vague, persons under 2 different families. Information was
initially obtained from the Sarah Clevenger Book. Clevenger families earlier than 1633 are
speculation. Information was not obtained from the Genealogy Research Book. A couple of
family researchers have up with this information. It is not confirmed or documented.
This tree is for all of the family members from both the Takes and Clevengers to enjoy and pass
down to their children and so on.
The Betsy Ross Flag is used to represent people who weved in the Revolutionary War. (There
were a lot of flags used, for the American Army at that time)
