Hi Karen, I wonder if, after all these years, you are still looking for information on Clarabel Spears? My Grandmother, Viva Wendell, was married to Otto Wendel, and I knew Otto as my grandfather (step). Clarabel was a wonderful, sweet woman, and I have pictures. I lost touch with her family after my grandmother died. Grandma and Otto bought land in Encinitas, Calif. and built a house one block from the beach. They are both buried in Oceanside, Calif.
Hope this helps a little, and I hope you've found the information you were looking for by now!
