Clifford (also spelled Clefort, Cleopne) Fontaine was born in 1844, either in Canada (according to the Minnesota birth records) or in Minnesota (according to the 1880 Minnesota Census). Both of his parents were born in Canada.[1] He married Emma, and they had a son, Oscar Fontaine, in 1871 in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota. On 3 March 1874 in Ramsey, Minnesota, they also had a son, Clefort Fontaine.[2] In 1880, the family lived in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota, United States. Clefort Sr. worked as a plasterer, while Emma kept house. Oscar was attending school, and Clefort Jr., along with a third son, John (born about 1878 in Minnesota), were also living with them.[3] Clefort and Emma had another child on 17 March 1881.[4]
