Photo Details

I've "rescued" an old photograph of David CLARK which was taken at the Bannister Studio in New Richmond, WI sometime in the 1890's early 1900's. David appears to be in his teens or 20's at the time. In addition to his name, someone has also written "Cousin to Mitchell" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding David and his family:

David CLARK was b. abt 1882 in Wisconsin to parents Clarence Philip CLARK (1854-1918) and Phoebe HADLEY (1851-1926). David was one of 9 children born to this couple including, Lillian “Lilly” Dora; Maud LaPearl; David Howard; Ashabel; David; Prudence “Prudie” Rose; Buln; Ray Vaughn; and Vaughn CLARK, all born between 1874 and 1892. David died 29 Dec 1950 in Los Angeles, CA.

Census records provide the following details:

1910 census of Glenwood, WI:

Clarence CLARK, age 56, married 35 years, born WI, parents born NY, a Stone Works Mason
Phoebe CLARK, wife, age 55, married 35 years, 6 children/5 living, born NY, parents born NY
David CLARK, son, age 28, born WI, a Farm Work Laborer
Bulu CLARK, dau, age 27, born WI
Vaughn CLARK, son, age 18, born WI

I’m hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this CLARK Family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

Thanks,

AncientFaces The middle part, the curl, the straw hat pushed back on his head, David sure shows the fashion of the time.
