Notes:

As of July 2019, Clara's birth is reported by various family trees on Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org as 2 Jan 1904, Sheffield, Bureau Co, IL; but original sources to confirm the date have not been found.

She married David Lorenzo Wheelock 13 Jan 1920, Sheffield, Bureau Co, IL. (Src: Records of Ruth Ann Scott, grand-daughter of Clara Defreezer, citing Office of the County Clerk, Bureau Co, IL; and communications with a priest at St. Patrick's Church, Sheffield.)

Clara Wheelock, age 26, divorced, is enumerated in the 1930 census renting in East Moline, Rock Island Co, IL, with her children: Elaine, 8, Henry, 7, David, 5, Richard, 4, Gene, 2 1/12, and Betty M, 6/12. Per census, she was married at age 16.

Her former husband, David, age 34, is enumerated as a lodger in a nearby boarding house.

She was divorced from David on 20 Oct 1930, Rock Island Co, IL. (Src: Records of Ruth Ann Scott, grand-daughter of Clara DeFreezer, citing phone conversation with Rock Island County Clerk, 2017.)

After her divorce from David, she married three men in relatively quick succession, divorcing each after six or seven years - apparently without children. In 1952 she married James Lomax Dean, with whom she spent the remaining twenty years of her life, living in Des Moines, Iowa, where she is buried.

Research Notes:

Clara Wheelock married Floyd Moneymaker 1 Nov 1930 in Rock Island Co, IL. (Src: Wheelock-Moneymaker, record number 1930M047211, Rock Island County Office Building, clerks office, Rock Island IL; online index at http://www.rockislandcounty.org/GenealogySearch, accessed July 2019.)

Floyd and Clara are listed together in the Rock Island city directory in 1931 and 1932. Neither are listed in the 1933 city directory. Mrs. Clara Moneymaker is listed in the 1934 and 1935 Moline city directories, without Floyd. [Src: "U.S. City Directories, 1822-1995," database with images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/usdirectories : accessed 8 July 2019); Polk's Rock Island, Rock Island Co, Illinois, City Directory, 1931, p. 203; also Polk's Rock Island City Directory, 1932, p. 181; also Polk's Moline, Rock Island Co, Illinois, City Directory, 1934, p. 174; also Polk's Moline, Rock Island Co, Illinois, City Directory, 1935, p. 219.]

By 1936 she is using the Wheelock surname again. Clara Wheelock is tabulated in the 1936 and 1937 Rock Island, Rock Island Co, IL city directories, working as a maid at the Central Hotel. [Src: "U.S. City Directories, 1822-1995," database with images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/usdirectories : accessed 8 July 2019); Polk's Rock Island, Rock Island Co, Illinois, City Directory, 1937, p. 380; also Polk's Rock Island City Directory, 1936, p. 355.]

In 1938, she is again tabulated as Clara Moneymaker, in Rock Island, Rock Island Co, IL city directory, divorced, working as a maid at the Central Hotel. [Src: "U.S. City Directories, 1822-1995," database with images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/usdirectories : accessed 8 July 2019); Polk's Rock Island, Rock Island Co, Illinois, City Directory, 1938, p. 273.]

On 3 June 1938 she was granted a divorce from Floyd Moneymaker in Rock Island County. No children mentioned. [Src: "Mrs Floyd Moneymaker, Moline, Given Divorce," The Dispach (Moline, Illinois), p. 3; also Rock Island County Clerks office, Rock Island, Illinois, phone conversation with Ruth Ann (Newberg) Scott, 31 July 2019.]

Clara Moneymaker and Theodore Jack Enfield, both of Rock Island, Illinois, were married 2 July 1938, at Davenport, Iowa. The marriage certificate identifies Clara's place of birth as Sheffield, Ill, and her parents as John DeFriese and Marie DeBates. It was Clara's third marriage. [Src: "Iowa, Marriage Records, 1880-1940," database with images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/iamarriagerec : accessed 22 July 2019; citing Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa marriage records, State Historical Society of Iowa, Des Moines.]

Clara I. Enfield, 36, and Theodore J. Enfield, 22, are enumerated in the 1940 census living in Rock Island, Rock Island Co, IL. Clara's occupation is given as maid, and Theodore's is given as a truck driver. No children are shown. [Src: 1940 U.S. census, Rock Island, Rock Island Co, Illinois, population schedule, Enumeration District 81-82, sheet 9A, 1705 1/2 2nd Ave, Theodore J. Enfield houshold; National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) microfilm publication T627, roll 876.]

On 21 Aug 1945, Clara was granted a divorce from Theodore J. Enfield, no children mentioned in the settlement. [Src: "Twenty Granted Divorce Decrees in Circuit Court," The Rock Island Argus (Rock Island, Illinois), 21 Aug 1945, p. 3, col 5; database with images, Newspapers.com, accessed 22 July 2019; also Rock Island County Clerks office, Rock Island, Illinois, phone conversation with Ruth Ann (Newberg) Scott, 31 July 2019.]

On 27 Oct 1945, Clara Ida Enfield married Robert Greene Davis in Rock Island County, Illinois. (Src: Enfield-Davis, record/certificate number 1945M008141A, Rock Island County Office Building, clerks office, Rock Island IL; online index at http://www.rockislandcounty.org/GenealogySearch, accessed July 2019.)

The marriage license application for Clara and Robert was announced in the 30 Oct 1945 Daily Times (Davenport, IA), p. 20, under "Aplications for Marriage Licenses." It reads: "Robert Green Davis and Mrs. Clara Ida Enfield of Rock Island."

By 1 Apr 1952 Clara Davis had filed a divorce suit against Robert G. Davis; the divorce was granted 12 Apr 1952. [Src: "Charging desertion," The Daily Times (Davenport, Iowa), 1 Apr 1952, p 16; database with images, Newspapers.com, retrieved 22 July 2019; also Scott County Clerks office, Davenport, Iowa, phone conversation with Ruth Ann (Newberg) Scott, 31 July 2019.]

An unsourced family tree at Ancestry.com cites a 16 Apr 1952 marriage for Clara Davis and James Lomax Dean, in Birmingham, Alabama; sources not identified. [Src: Riddle/Owens Family Tree, Ancestry.com, accessed 22 July 2019.]

The 21 Oct 1960 obituary of Clara's mother, Mary DeFreezer, of Sheffield, IL, makes reference to three surviving daughters, one of whom is Mrs. Clara Dean, of Birmingham, Ala. [Src: "Mrs. John DeFreezer," The Dispatch (Moline, Illinois), 21 Oct 1960, Fri, Page 18, col. 7; database with images, Newspapers.com, accessed 8 July 2019.]

Mary DeFreezers probate records, in Bureau Co, IL identifies Clara's address as 4500 40th Place, Birmingham, Alabama. The 1960 Birmingham city directory shows James L. Dean and Clara Dean living at that address. A more thorough examination of the Birmingham, Alabama city directory shows that James L. Dean and Clara I. Dean (middle initial sometimes D, M, I) had been living at that address since 1953 (but not earlier). The occupation of James L. Dean is given as "stereotyper Birmingham News." [Srcs: Mary DeFreezers probate record, retrieved from Bureau Co clerks office, Sheffield, Illinois by Ruth Ann (Newberg) Scott, July 2019. Also "U.S. City Directories, 1822-1995," database with images, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/usdirectories : accessed 8 July 2019); Polk's Birmingham, Jefferson Co, Alabama, City Directory, 1960, p. 323; also Birmingham 1953 directory, p. 284, 1954 directory, p. 293, 1956 directory, p. 293, 1958 directory, p. 291, 1959 directory, p. 297.]

James Lomax Dean was born in Dothan, Alabama. His father, apparently, was from Alabama, but his mother was from Iowa. He was living in Davenport, Iowa in 1944, working for the local newspaper, and was again in Davenport in 1950, when his first wife died. [Srcs: James Lomax Dean story, Quad City Times (Davenport, Iowa), 27 Aug 1944, p. 30; also "Mrs. Lomax Dean Dies in Davenport, Iowa," obituary, Dothan Eagle (Dothan, Alabama), 11 Apr 1950, p. 2, col. 7; database with images, Newspapers.com, accessed July 2019.]

Clara I. Dean died in Des Moines, Iowa on 20 April 1972, having lived there with James L. Dean since 1965. Her (minimal) obituary was published in the 21 April 1972 edition of the Des Moines Tribune, page 13, col 1. It reads as follows:

"Mrs. James L. Dean: Services will be at 9:30 a.m. Monday at Dunn's Funeral Home on Grand Avenue for Mrs. James L. Dean, 55, of 2213 Fifty-third St. Burial will be in Glendale Cemetery. Mrs. Dean died Thursday at Mercy Hospital of a heart ailment. She had been ill about two weeks. Mrs. Dean was born in Sheffield, Ill, and lived in Des Moines seven years. Her husband survives."

The Dunn Funeral Home records confirm that her first name is Clara, and that she was born in Sheffield, Il. The parents are listed as 'unknown'. [Src: Dunn Funeral Home records, Des Moines, Iowa, retrieved by Ruth Ann (Newberg) Scott, July 2019.]

The obituary, the funeral home records, and her grave marker in Glendale Cemetery all indicate a birth date of 1917, which is problematic, given that she was born in 1904. Coincidentally, her husband was born in 1917, which might provide an explanation for why James L. Dean thought his wife was born in the same year (he was the informant on the funeral home record). Probably Clara was not totally honest with her husband about her age. She had married younger men before, and it's likely she just didn't want to admit her true age to her husband. The other records are consistent with the 1904 birth date.

There is another record that provides inconsistent information. Clara's brother, Peter DeFreezer, died in May 1975. His obituary is published in the Princeton County Record (Princeton, Sheffield Co, Illinois), p. 4, col. 1. (Src: NewspaperArhive.com, accessed July 2019.) Surviving relatives are listed in the obituary, including Mrs. David (Clara) Wheelock, Des Moines, Iowa. Obviously, the informant for this obituary, probably Peter DeFreezer's wife, Ruth (Hull) DeFreezer, was unaware of Clara's death, and of her new married name, but did seem to know that she had resided in Des Moines.
