Linda Eggleston McBROOM has
sent several photos of Sam CLARK of Hayward, Wisconsin, along with an
old letter from 1968 wherein Sam writes of his ancestry. He relates
that his great grandfather, Robert CLARK had a brother, John, who was
the father of William CLARK of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, as well
as George Rodgers CLARK, another famous explorer of the times.
At the time of the writing of this
letter (April 10, 1968), Sam CLARK was 86 years old and in good health. It
would be wonderful if this letter and the several photos included could be
re-united with descendants of Sam CLARK. As another clue, the letter was
written to Ruth Clark BACON, who Sam calls his cousin. Ruth lived in Tacoma
Washington in 1968.
