CLARK, HILTON, JACKSON IN PA, OH, VA, CA, KY
With special reference to James Barnes, Re: The Clark Family
I don't whether I sent this information to the Board previously, but if not, thought it might be helpful.
I have the death certificate for Romania Hardin (Harden) Clark, born in Dayton, Ohio, July, 1970, died in Oakland, CA. Her parents were: John B. Hardin, born in Kentucky, mother: Burdell Hilton Hardin, born in Mon City, PA aka, Monongahela,Washington County, PA. They were married in Ohio, date and location still unknown to me. However, there's a possibility that this took place in Dayton, Ohio, since Burdella's father, Hiram Hilton, was at the Army Home and buried in the Dayton National Cemetery. Romania was married to Henry Clark, born 1885, in Kentucky. There doesn't appear to have been any children born from this union. Henry had previously been married to a woman named Irene and they had a child, Lowell Clark.
The informant of Romania's death was Hilton G. Jackson. I have census data for his immediate family but this entire is a Work In Progress.
