Dear Tom:
I'm sorry if I misled you. Thomas Clark married Bridget Egan and they had 10-11 children. Bridget Egan died in 1879. A year or so later Thomas married Mary E. Clark. In the 1880 census there is also a Mary E. Clark listed, however, it was Thomas and Bridget's 17 year old daughter. If there was an 1890 census, I'm sure Mary E. Riley would be listed. She is listed in the 1900 census-and it gave her birth date as Jan. 1844. Her age was listed as 56 in the 1900 census and 66 in the 1910 census. Thomas Clark died in 1895. His obituary notice listed his wife as Mary E. Riley of Omaha, NE. He left everything to her as long as she lived and then to his son Charles.
As I told you Thomas and Bridget Clark's daughter Mary E. Clark married E.F. (ED) Riley. He was a cousin or nephew of something to Mary Riley. At any rate they were related and he also was said to be from Omaha.
I hope I have corrected my first memo.
By the way, all the Clark family wer buried in St Cecilia's cemetery. I remember my grandmother saying they attended St Cecilia's Church.
I seem to remember Mary Riley Clark went to stay with a sister in NYC and came back only for visits after 1910. My mother remembered her and she was born in 1908. She said she was a marvelous mother to all the children and a great cook.
