Sue, I have been searching for some time now for information on the parents of James E Clark who was born in Fon du lac, county WI. 17 Sep 1854 or 1851 . He was supposed to have been orphaned when very young and raised by an aunt named Lottie Slatter. I do not know which side of the family the aunt is from. On his marriage license he has his parents names as James Clark and mother as D.Robison. I found a short bio on him in "early settlers of White SD" which is where he moved after he married .This is where the birth year differs, all census reports have 1854, but in this article it has 1851. Any info on his parents or aunt would be of great help and very appreciated.
