I am thankful for my Uncle Bill Hibsch, also known as the family historian. His life-long interest in history and family history in particular continues to be a boom for my family research. My husband and I recently had lunch with him and my Aunt Joan. As we were chatting, he pulled out a folder which turned out to be a treasure trove - two obituaries and four photos. Happy Dance Time! He said there's more to come - oh, if only I lived next door to him! I am sharing one of the obituaries below (click to enlarge).
The discovery of this obituary filled in the blanks and provided new avenues to research. Uncle Dock was Adam Clark, brother of Jane Clark Brown and mother of Ida May Brown Kendall. Next tasks, transcribe the obit and create a reseach to-do list.
