- this is my great-grandfather
- I had no idea what he looked like before finding this photo on Ancestry in September, and
- this beard is AMAZING! What a way to end Movember!
|David Ulysses Clark - 1873-1947|
As you can see from the note on the page about "My Sixteen" I also don't have any solid proof tying David to his ancestors, though Joel Clark would be the most likely candidate. Perhaps if I can figure out this DNA stuff, we can find an answer to that question.
According to my source, Gail, this photo was taken in Ashland, Kentucky, in 1942. Her grandmother was David's daughter Alma. The Ashland City Directory for that year listed David U and Vicie, my great-grandmother, living at 2200 1/2 Blackburn Ave.
In 1947, he died in Pulaski, Arkansas at the age of 74, and was buried in Benton.

WTHAT = "Who the Heck Are They?" These are pictures that I have in my physical possession whose subjects are unknown to me. I'm hoping the Internet will recognize them, and maybe someone will let me know who they are.
GBOH = "Great Beards of History!" As a proud beard owner, I love finding examples of stunning facial hair in the family. Yes, sometimes, I will use this to share amazing moustaches, as well.
