Hi Dave!

I have been looking at your website all day. Very interesting! I see you have my gggrandmother Charlotte Mills in your file. She was married to John Clark of Nova Scotia. I am currently trying to obtain more information on them. John Clark and Charlotte Mills had a son, John Clark, who married Melissa Decow in Iona, Elgin, Ontario. John Clark and Melissa Decow had a son, John Aden Clark, who was my grandfather. John Aden Clark was born in Iona, Elgin, Ontario. He married and moved to California about 1900. That is where I am from, but now live in the state of Washington. I never knew my grandfather, for he died 12 years prior to my birth. I obtained a copy of his death certificate, which had a SS# on it. From there I obtained a SS application form which listed his parents names and his place of birth. This opened up my brick wall. I now know his grandfather came from Nova Scotia, and have since found many name connections (i.e. Mills/Blenkhorn/Lumley/Decow etc., etc., etc.) Your website was very informative. I don't know that you could give me anymore information than what was on it. I couldn't make any connections with the Clarks or the one Decow.

I will be looking at your website during my research and will let you know anything new I turn up that would be of interest to you.

Best regards,

Melinda Clark Brasier
