We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    Notes 
    • Two birth records in Kalo, Webster Co IA for unnamed babies (the dates correspond to the births of Bertha and Estella) both list the parents as Jared R. Clark and Elizabeth Ellen Cahail Clark. Her maiden name is given as Cahill in the 1875 death record of her daughter Mary Alice and in the 1883 marriage record of her daughter Matilda.

      The 1895 IA State census gives birth counties for those born in Iowa and in this record Elizabeth E., age 41, states she was born in Jefferson Co IA. Only in 1900 did she state she was born in KY. In every census except 1900 she stated she was born in IA. In 1880 she said her father was born in OH and her mother in KY.

      A transcription of Elizabeth's death record names her as "Mrs. Jared Clark" in Kalo, Otho, Webster Co, IA who died on 30 Apr 1899. She was aged 49, married and a housewife at the time of death. Her birthplace is given as Jefferson Co IA in this record.

      I do believe this to be Elizabeth Cahail Clark even though Elizabeth was listed with Jared in the 1900 census of Otho Twp, Webster Co, age 49, and born Sept 1850 in KY.

      Perhaps the marker was placed years after the fact and the death year was mis-stated. While census record errors are common, it seems unlikely that a specific listing such as the 1900 enumeration would be wholly wrong. The death record cited above is a transcription with no image available to me. While it also seems unlikely that a transcriber would err on three digits of the death year, I have seen two different years written on the same death certificate for death and burial of an individual. I'm entering her death date as given in the death record without being able to explain her enumeration in the 1900 census.

      Elizabeth had been married for 31 years according to the 1900 and had 7 children, 7 living.

      There is also a transcription of a marriage record on Webster Co IA GenWeb of a possible relation:
