John, a pleasure to receive a message from you.My William Clear b 1913 d 2005. SSN Brooklyn, NY before 1951. Tenuous to say the least.I have some reason to believe he is my grandfather or great-uncle.However he has stated that he did not have any children.called many Clear family in Brooklyn.Located his daughter-in-law; who is married to Williams son. She stated that there was a family feud many years ago, which is why he says he doesn't have children, and she has never met him.She does not remember hearing of a "Mary Clear" and cannot discuss the family with her husband. I will pull my info from my stash tomorrow. I have tried to locate other relatives.My name is listed in the NY birth index.Louise Clear 06/22/51.So all I really know is that my last name is Clear.I know the street they resided at.Unfortunately no one remembers them. I was told that mymother married William Smith some years after my birth; and that they moved to the Scarsdale area.Very hard to locate a womans maiden name.Needless to say I am very interested in the history of the Clear family. Thank you for your reply.Sorry, my computer skills are extremely limited.Would love to hear from you again.
