  • Notes 
    • When Clara was about six or seven years old in 1875 or 1876, Col. Chivington came to her folks home and stayed overnight. Being somewhat crowded for room, one of her brothers slept at the top of the bed with Col. Chivington and she slept at the foot of the bed. Col. Chivington was a Methodist minister and preached that next morning (Sunday) at their church. This happened sometime after the Chivington massacre.

      When Clara was 12 years old, her family moved to a farm near Seapo, Kansas where she finished school and taught for two years near Wayne, Kansas.

      When she was 20 years old she went to Belleville, Kansas and worked as a milliner and seamstress for a year, then returned home for a visit and went to Junction City where she was a seamstress for some time, and was kept busy as a dressmaker. Junction City was a tough one in those days with so many soldiers from Fort Riley coming in.

      She was introduced to her future husband on 30 May 1891 in Kansas Falls, Kansas. They were married at her parents' home in Kansas Falls, Kansas on 30 May 1891.

      Clara and her husband made their home in Junction City untill 1910 (except for two years in Oregon) when her husband went to Colorado and homesteaded north of Arena. The rest of the family joined him there on 11 Feb 1911.

      Clara had a family of five sons and two daughters all born in Junction City, Kansas.
