Wensil D. Marsh Clark


Wednesday, December 12, 2012 


I noticed the obituary for Mrs. Clark in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on December 11, 2012. Mrs. Clark was connected to the Hardcastle line through her mother. Though I never met Mrs. Clark personally, I know that she made many contributions to family history research in general and to Hardcastle family history research, particularly. When I first became interested in family history research, I connected with Mrs. Aleene Shubert. Mrs. Shubert had corresponded extensively with Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Shubert generously shared much information from her research and Mrs. Clark's research. This information proved very helpful to me in establishing my own research and is the foundation for a lot of information on this website. I think I am correct in stating that Mrs. Clark established her DAR credentials as a descendant of James Hardcastle, a Revolutionary War patriot. Her obituary notes her passion for family history research and notes that she was a member of various historical societies and served as officer in various organizations. Additionally, she authored at least two books in the field of family history research. Our condolences to her family. John Hardcastle
