William Clark birth about 1844 likley Ontario,Canada
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 17:15 GMT (UK) »
Looking for William Clark birth about 1844.

Parents  were Thomas Clark born 31 JAN 1811  Invernessshire, Scotland Death OCTOBER 16,1891  Turnberry, Huron County, Ontario, Canada

 Occupation Baker

Spouse was Mary A (maiden name unknown)

We know in 1860 William was living in Michigan with his father but no Mary A.  We also know the last child, Isabella, was born in 1851 in Michigan.  Possibly Mary A  passed in Michigan but nothing found so far.

By 1881 Thomas (widowed) was back in Canada living with a family named Weston in Hay Township, Huron County.  No sign of William or other family members

His sister Johanna 1849-1890 remained in Michigan and married a Cyrus Hathaway.

His other sister Isabella b 1851 Michigan appears to have come to Canada, possibly in 1863, based on 1911 census info.  That record also had her born in 1861. She married a Robert Allan 1842-1918

So far no records showing the complete family in Ontario or Michigan
Dunbar, Clark,Bain, Lipp, Campbell, Pope, Barnard, Handcock, McAdams,Creath
