Harry Clifton Clark Father 1894/95 Kansas
I have a great hole on my grandfathers side of the family. His mother was b 1866 Ill. Eliza Van Wey (maiden name). Her first husband was Cooper they had a son named George Logan Cooper . They separated and the father took George. She then married I think George???? Clark .Harry birth record has him born in Ohio. and they had Harry Clifton Clark in Parnell Kansas 1893 . Eliza Wan Wey died in 1896 and Harry was raised by his Grandmother Susan Van Wey (McPeak) And is seen in 1900's census with Susan Van Wey as head of household and Harry as nephew age 6. Grasshopper Kansas . My cousin said the father might have drown because his things were found by the river 1894 . And the 1895 census was burned so no help there. Harry was with his grandmother from then on in-tell he married in about 1912 to Jessie Swisher and they had kids. There is and unknown element in 1900's census of a Jessie Campbell as niece age 8 with the Liggatt Family following the Van Wey in this census . Alice Liggatt maiden name was Van Wey. Who dose she belong to? Harry being born in 1893 ,so the marriage took place before 1893 we are thinking 1890 and 1893 when Harry was born . Again these records were burned . Dose anyone out there no something about this family ?
