I really don't know the name Clarence keeps popping up since I found it on my grandads death cert. he my mom stated his mother's name was Mar E. Smith father Clarence. My grandads name was Arthur E. Abrams and he was born in Jamaica Queens, NY but I find the family were among the first Dutch settler in Brooklyn, the first record is of Chas.Abrahams from Mass. he had two son's and two daughter's. Through these two son's there have been many decendants.
