I know of this couple. By process of elimination I believe Mary to be the daughter of
Gilbert A. Ireland and his wife Amy (Maiden Name Unknown) but have no proof of that. From
correspondence with others I understand that Clark d. in 1882 - Mary d. 1876 both in
Readsboro, VT. Again, from correspondence with others I show Clark and Mary (Ireland)
Reynolds as having 7 children.
Another possibility is that Mary had a sister Eliza.

Amongst other items recorded at this meeting:

I know that Gilbert and Amy had a daughter Emeline who married Peter Losee. Have Emeline

After much research on the Irelands little if any information has been found on this
Gilibert A. Ireland (not to be confused with another Gilbert A. Ireland who married Arlene
- he was born in 1856) but he is believed to have had 9 Children when he was an Insolvent
Debtor in Putnam County in 1818. I don't know when he died - the last I know of
Gilbert A. as living is 1830 - after that he seems to disappear from Census
