red mail Family of W J Clark resident of Falkirk in 1923
I am currently researching the Clark family of Tamlaght O'Crilly, Co. Londonderry and am aware that a cousin of William Clark, Tamlaght, was living in Falkirk in the early 1920s. The information I have for this member of the Clark family is scant and only that his initials were W J and that he and his family had spent a holiday in Northern Ireland with the Tamlaght Clarks in July 1923. I suspect that his name was either William John or William James Clark but cannot be certain. I should be grateful therefore for any information on this member of the greater Clark family and for any information relating to his descendants.
