CLARK, MELON posted by William R. Gann on Sunday, January 11, 1998

Seeking information on Hiram C. Clark age 64, and Catharine Melon, age 43 in 1860. The children listed with them in the household in 1860 census at Burlington, Coffey County, Kansas were probably all hers by her first marriage (to --?-- Melon), except the youngest one: John A. b. 1840 OH, Caroline b. 1846 MO, George W. b. 1849 MO, William b. 1851 MO, Comodore b. 1852 MO. The surname on these children is shown in census as Clark but is probably Melon. The youngest daughter, Mary E., was b. about 1858 in MO. The family lived in DeKalb County, MO before moving to Coffey County about December 1858. Need marriage record for Hiram C. Clark and Catharine Melon, and her maiden name and first husbandís name. Any info on this family appreciated Hiram CLARK died in Coffey County, KS in 1866, near Leroy. He was a resident of Neosho Falls in Woodson County at the time, and Catharine apparently predeceased him. That had to be after 1860, as she was alive with him in census at that time, in Coffey County. In July 1866, the Woodson County Probate Court indentured the three minor children of Hiram to Jonathan H. HAGAR of Butler County, KS: William Thompson CLARK, Hiram Commadore Perry CLARK, and Mary Elizabeth CLARK. Cannot find them in the 1870 census. Would like to know what became of them and their older siblings: John A. CLARK, Caroline CLARK, and George W. CLARK. Any of these children could be found under MALONE as well as CLARK. All of the children except Mary Elizabeth are believed to belong to Catharine by her first husband, a Mr. MELON or MALONE. Any help appreciated. Will gladly exchange, as we have much data on ancestry of Hiram CLARK.
