Good to hear from you. Our Clear connection is very tenuous, in that one of my great aunts who was born in Tipperary Ireland went to New York as did her sister and brother and their names and details are based on family folklore, as their brother my grandfather died young and his only child my mother was told "not to talk about his family". As you can appreciate this sparked my interest big time. However the only information I have been able to authenticate is as follows:
