Dear Grace,


As I'm sure you know, there are many Clark/Clarke families in Brown County. I looked through the references to Clark families in the three histories, but could not identify a William Clark that would fall into the age range to be the husband of Sarah Bryan. The Sarah's also seem to be attached to other husbands. Most of the Clark families came out of Kentucky. Could Sarah be married to a cousin of one of these?


There is a William Clark, and also a Sarah E. Clark, listed in the probate index.


William Clark 1848, Box #59.

Sarah E. Clark (no year) Box #189.

Sarah E. Clark 1918, Box #51.


I was wondering if there could there be a chance that Sarah remarried in Brown County, or somewhere along the way from Kentucky? Also, having any of the names of her children who came into Brown County would help to identify her.


Let me know if I can be of any further help.

I would like to ask you to look up William Clark (the numbers given were 123, 141, and 315) and Sarah Clark (the numbers given were 211 and 315).  Sarah's maiden name was Bryan I believe.  William may have died in KY before they made it to Brown County, but I am told that Sarah died there in 1848.  Since that is so early, there may not be a record, but I would appreciate you looking.
