Dear List. Perhaps some one with a list of Columbia County marriages would please help
me find a marriage listing for Josephine Clark. (born. about 1843) Kinderhook. Josephines
parents were David Clark, (1816-1878) and wife Cornelia Smith Clark.)1822-1900).
Kinderhook. The parents are both buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Kinderhook. I find No sign
of their daughter Josephine in this cemetery as a Clark.
I find Josephine Clark growing up in Kinderhook, living with her parents in 1850, age
8, 1855, age 13, and in 1860, age 18 in Kinderhook. I do not find her in the 1865 State
Census at Kinderhook. I assume she either died, or was married and changed her name.
I have been unable to locate her as Josephine Clark in later Federal Census, also I
have tried without success to discover a marriage for her. I would appreciate any help
someone might have, or suggestions.
I recently requested assistance from the Columbia County Historical Society with this but
they were unable to discover anything more on Josephine, or this family. Thank you in
advance for your help. Sincerely, Bruce M. Smith, Bayside, CA
