I am trying to find the parents of John Welborn CLARK b. abt 1893 KS, per the 1920 Clark Co., OH census. He had md. Leota Ada ALLEN of Ohio, John W. his wife and their 1st child were living in Springfield, Oh. Kansas Soundex for 1900 had three possible families with a son John of about the right age. Charles and Lena Clark of Geary Co., KS were eliminated by the 1910 soundex when their son was identified as John C. Clark. The other two were John T. and Thulia Clark of Jewell Co., KS whose son, John W., was born Mar. 1892; and William S. and Ida Clark of Reno Co., KS whose son John was b. Jan 1891 (age 9). In the 1920 soundex, John T. and Thulia Clark weren't to be found in KS; Wm. S. and Ida Clark were still living in Reno Co., KS (with only the youngest dau. still at home); in Rooks Co., KS there was a John W. Clark age 19 (with wife Flossie) whom I suspect was William and Ida's son. None of these parents were born in KS as John W. Clark said in the 1920 Clark Co., OH census. John T. was born in Ohio, Thulia was born in VA, and both Wm. S. and Ida were born in IN. Carolyn Taylor carotaylor1@juno.com

You have listed a FRANK BOYER, bn 9-1880. The son of ERNEST BOYER & EVELINE SOMMERLOTT.

I have a great Aunt, JESSIE COX, who was married to a FRANK BOYER. She was bn abt. 1884, so the ages are right. She was born in or around Columbus/ Crestline Kansas in Cherokee Co. It was listed that they lived in Stark Kansas at the time of my Great Grandfathers death in 1936.

Does any of this fit in with you FRANK BOYER? If so, I would appreciate comparing notes. Thank you. Billy Cox, Cottonwood AZ. honey33@cybertrails.com
