Dear Michael
Quite a while ago you posted a notice about your great grandmother Clara Mork. She is also my great-aunt. My grandfather was her nephew. I don't have too much information on her but this is what I do know. She is the daughter of John Johnson Mork (born Oct. 29, 1839, Norway) and Kari Mork (Born Nov. 1 1851, Norway). John and Kari immigrated in 1871, probably to Minnesota. I don't have too much info on this part.They took a boat called the "Hero". They had seven children : Annie (b. 1877), Mary (b. 1870?), John (b. 1872), Clara (b.?), Thea (b.1882), Torval (b.1884 - my great grandfather), Sophus (b. 1887) Clara's dad died on Jan. 4, 1891 in St. James Minnesota and Kari died on Sept.15, 1919 in St. James Minnesota. She is buried in the Long Lake cemetary, St. James Minnesota. In my family history papers I have a note that says Clara married Frank Clark and that they lived in Mobile Alabama. I have no dates for their marriage nor for Clara's birth, death or whether they had any children. Obviously they did as you are a descendent. If youo have any info you could share with me I would appreciate it also so I can update my family history papers.Hope this information helps even though your inquiry was posted years ago. Thanks
