I am trying to find the father of John R. Clark. His mother was Olive Hodges b. 1874 Michigan. She was from the UP of Canadian parentage and married a Clark (perhaps a John also) from lower Michigan. Her husband died early in the marriage leaving Olive and John (at about age 6 in 1899). John Robkins Clark remembered the sickness and death of his father. A memory of vomiting blood before his death. After her husband's death Olive returned to the UP and married a Minier who were from her mother's side of the family. Family legend has it that the Clarks of this lower Michigan family were well to do but Olive chose to take her child and go back to the relative hardships associated with living in the UP. As far as I know no one has been able to trace the link with these Clarks in lower Michigan. Do these facts ring a bell with anyone associated with the Clark's in lower Michigan? Thanks for your help. I have just found a WWI draft doc. for John R. Clark that states his birthplace to Cheboygan Michigan.Anyone know the Clark's that might have been in Cheboygan?
