Hi Janis,

Judy was wondering if he is the Clark her married an Etta. I see that this fellow is at Find a Grave which shows

Birth:        Jun. 19, 1866
Rock County
Wisconsin, USA
Death:        Nov. 15, 1947
Hughes County
South Dakota, USA

Clark William Davenport, son of Noah and Lorina Davenport was born June 19, 1866, at Evansville, Wisconsin, and departed this life Nov. 15, 1947, at the St. Mary's Hospital in Pierre, South Dakota, having attained the age of 81 years, 4 months, and 24 days. On Sept. 21, 1896, he was united in marriage to Etta Mae Fenton, and to this union 14 children were born. Three died in infancy. In January 1924, he moved to a ranch near O'Krees, South Dakota, where he resided until about 5 weeks before his death.

The children were: Carl, Charley, Garland, Harold, Lloyd, Floyd, Stanley, Leonard, John, George, and Fern.

Riverside Cemetery
Hughes County
South Dakota, USA
Plot: Addition B, Block 3, Lot 18, Site 7

There is also a photo of him and Etta with two children

Here he is with parents in 1870 -if this looks like the right fellow let me know and I can give you later census as well.

DEVENPORT (as indexed)
Noah, age 44, miller, born NY

Louisa, age 36, keeping house, born ME

Nellie, age 15, at home, born WI

George, age 12, at home, born WI

Willie,a ge 10, at home, born WI

Flora, age 8, at home, born WI

Clark, age 5, at home, born WI

Lewis, age 2, at home, born WI has a couple of marriages of children of Noah and Louisa which show her maiden name as BUZZELL/BOSSEL

it also shows Clark W. Davenport in 1935 South Dakota census - he is listed as divorced but 1940 census he is listed as widowed, but Etta is also in 1940 census listed as divorced
