I'm researching what happened to my 2nd great uncles, Thomas CLARK born in NY about 1860 and his brother George Watson CLARK, born about 1864 in Brooklyn, NY.
The brothers grew up in a Brooklyn but I have copies of their parents' probated which indicate they both lived in Wilton, MO in 1898 and in 1917 George was thought to be living in Shaw and Thomas in Hinton.
I can't find them in any census after they left Brooklyn about 1881. Maybe I'm missing something about how I'm searching? I believe they were farmers.
Any leads or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
