I have been researching my dad's family (William Cody Boutcher) for a few years on and off now. We were told that Reg went to Australia to live, but did not find any evidence of that. It is very exciting that at last I have found someone from the same family. We did not know anything of Clara, but during a long period of searching I found some information on one of the websites showing what appeared as my grandad(John Boutcher) living in London and married to a Clara Dobbs. I did not know what happened to her though. All the information has been found through websites and sending off for birth, death and marriage certificates. However, I had not searched very deeply into my grandad's first marriage as I still had other searches to make.
The photo you have of the person you say has something to do with Buffalo Bill-I was wondering which one it is, as I have some of Buffalo Bill and some of grandad dressed as Buffalo Bill. He looked exactly like him. My dad did not speak of his dad's previous marriage-I do not think he knew much except that there was children. Unfortunately, I am in the middle of decorating, and everything is in boxes. But next week, when I am straight, I will find it all, and can go further into it for you.
There was a Mary Boutcher who sadly has passed away in the last 2 years, and she seemed to know quite a bit, so that helped. She was a descendent of John Boutcher's brother. Apparently, he and his brother (Edward) were given some money by their father (John Boutcher) and could go their own way. Edward decided to set up business and had a sign shop in London. My grandad being the chap he was seemed to fritter his away or did not invest it wisely. There are hundreds of Boutchers here and America, but I do not know if they are connected. I will keep your emails on my computer and contact you again soon.
I have the family tree on the Genes Reunited and can give you permission to view it. I think it is still there.
We have a marvellous library here in Bournemouth with an area especially for family searches.
