Hi all, I am new to the list.
I am trying to find any info on my great grandfather, Bill Clark, father of
George William Clark, my grandfather. George William Clark (known as "GW")
died in Dixon in 1974, and is buried there. My grandfather GW and his family
moved to Dixon from Kentucky in 1929. My Aunt Bertha Clark Mason-Mulkins
moved there also. GW worked in the Reynolds Wire mill.
Does anyone know the history (parents)of this family? I remember his
sisters, Hattie and Mattie, I think they may have lived in Dixon but I don't
know their married (if they were married) names.
my grandfather GW was married to Dona Potts. my great-grandfather Bill (also
named George William I believe) had married Liza Ann Burgess but I know
nothing of what happened to him and Liza is buried in KY.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help!
