Today I happened to look at the memorial for my 3rd g. grandfather Thomas Clark,Find A Grave Memorial# 68354668, & noticed you have attached Patrick McBride Clark, Find A Grave Memorial# 71949855, as a son of Thomas & Betsy Robinson Clark.
I am curious just how you made that connection, as I've never seen a Patrick associated with any of the records for Thomas Clark who died 1843 in Giles County, TN.
In fact, Thomas does not mention anyone by that name in his will of 01 April 1843. He does mention "wife Nancy A. Clark, my six sons, William M. Clark, Alexander P. Clark, John R. Clark, Thomas J. Clark, Gideon B. Clark, and Doctor B. Clark, my daughter Mary A. Clark, my daughter Nancy E. Clark, my two step daughters Susan C. Farmer and Juda A. Farmer, my stepson Jasper N. Farmer,my stepson John S. Farmer, my son Andrew J. Clark deceased.....
My executor or executrix shall sell the above described track of land and make a deed to it. And when all my just debts are paid, the remainder shall be divided equally among my living children, Viz. James W. Clark, William M. Clark, Alexander P. Clark, John R . Clark, Thomas J. Clark, Gideon B. Clark, Doctor B. Clark, Martha A. White, Mary A. Clark, Nancy E. Clark."
I think it very unlikely he would leave out a son, so I'm wondering how you have made this connection, as I would want to make an addition to my records.
