My second great-grandfather, William Penrod Clarke was the second child born to Morgan Henry and Susan (Shank) Clarke on the 16th of September 1858. Morgan appears in the 1860 Funkstown Maryland census at the bottom of the left page below. His wife and children are at the top of the page on the right:

His mother died in the late 1870s. Shortly afterwards William traveled a bit looking for work. He arrived in Springfield Ohio sometime before 1882 when he married Mary Ella Littrell. They had one daughter, Ellen Gertrude who was born in June of 1883.
