I have just come upon this site and can help a little. I have compiled a Harold family tree which includes some of the Clarkes. Mary was my great grandfather's daughter.
Catherine (1897) died in Motherwell on 9th December, 1952. (My Auntie Kate). Mary (1899) died on 23rd June, 1922. James (1905) died on 14th Sept. 1959. He married Margaret Gordon on 31st Dec. 1930. Alice (1908) died in 2004. She married George Reilly in Coatbridge on 31st Dec.1929.
There are still Clarkes living in Coatbridge and I occasionally meet up with Tom. The Clarkes emigrated to USA and some of them came back, so it has been almost impossible to find out anything about the ones who remained in the US.
Naturally my family tree contains lots of the Harolds and you are welcome to pick my brains.

Hello! Thank you for the information! I've updated some of my records now.

I was wondering if you had any of the following information:

Mary Harold (1866) Married John Clark in 1866. Do you know John's date and location of birth?

I know John's parents were Patrick Clarke and Ann Hanratty. Would you have any information about them?

Mary's parents were James Harold and Ann Coyle. I only have estimated years of birth for both of them and assumed birth locations are Cootehill.

Would you have any dates for these?

John's parents were Samuel Harold and Susan Smith. However, I have no further information regarding them. Anything you could provide of them (and their ancestors) would be great!

Also, I know nothing at all about Susan Smith's parents.

My email address is [email protected] Feel free to contact me directly.

We took a trip to Scotland 3 years ago and visited Coatbridge. Its a shame I did not have any contact names and addresses when we were there.

I would love to have the names, data, and contact information for those still over there in Scotland and Ireland. If anyone would like it, please give them my email address.

You probably have more information about the Clarke's lineage than I do, but if you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for all of you help!

Hello Jim,
Thanks to you I have managed to find a few more relatives. I'll give you what I have about the Clarkes but lots of records were destroyed in the Irish uprising of 1922.
John, married to Mary Harold (my Dad's aunt). I can't find any birth record for John but will keep trying. Again, no details about Patrick and Ann, probably because of the riots.
James, who married Ann Coyle was born in 1838 in Co. Cavan, probably Cootehill. He married Ann on 28th Feb. 1864 in Muddebawn, Cootehill. James died at 25 Camp Street, Motherwell on 23rd Sept. 1910. Ann was born in Co. Cavan in 1848 and died at the same address as James on 13th Feb.1910.
Samuel was as far back as I could go, c1815, the same with Susan Smith.
There were a lot of Clarkes. I presume you have the details of John and Mary so here are James and Mary Gordon's family. They had 10 children and most of them still live in the Coatbridge area. I will see if I can get an address or email for someone
John 1932 - 2015
Alexander - 1934 (lives in USA or Canada)
James 1935
Robert 1937
Patrick 1938
Susan 1939 - 2006
Tom 1941
Mary 1948
Margaret 1946
Anthony 1947 - 2011
I didn't find out much about the Clarkes as I was concentrating on the Harold side of which there are hundreds!
