Annie and Ethel Clark were my grandmother's sisters, and my mother's aunts. My mother is still alive and told me she had heard about Wm. Clark, her mother Bertha's father's tragic end in 1897. There were six sisters who were left fatherless, and apparently two died before the 1910 census.
I would be interested to know what info you might have about my great grandmother, Margaret Cowan Clark, and her second husband, Francis Thompson? I have found original newspaper clippings about her first husband's (my great grandfather's) drowning! My grandmother would have been 8 yrs. old when he died.
