Dear Adam Hankinson,

I live in the state of Washington in the US. Originally, I was born and raised in California. I am researching my Clark family line from Ontario and recently found a relative who gave me information that my Clarks orginally came from Nova Scotia. This is how my ties with the Blenkhorns go...

John Clark of NS marries Charlotte Mills of NS and they move to Ontario. Charlotte's parents were Nathan Mills & Tomasina Blenkhorn of NS.

I looked in the IGI and found Nathan and Tomasina. Looking further it looks like Tomasina's parents were William Blenkhorn and Ann. William was born about 1746. The children of William and Ann that I found were Tomasina 1776, Thomas 1777, William 1778, Robert 1780, David 1782, Christopher 1784, and Elizabeth 1787. I also found the marriage of Robert T. Blenkhorn to Martha Mills Feb. 07, 1811 and David Blenkhorn to Dorcas Mills Feb. 06, 1814.

Does any of this make any sense to what documentation you have? Do you have any other Clarks in your information? What county in NS were these families from?

Anxious to here from you.

Melinda Clark Brasier
