In Reply to: Re: Abigail Prather Churchill and the Clark Family by Larry Myers of 3037

Hi Larry - yes it is a work in progress and all so confusing especially when everyone uses the sames names over and over

here is that first posting you made i referenced :: I am doing research on Abigail Prather Churchill who was the wife of Col Meriwether Lewis Clark. Col Clark was the son of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition out of Pittsburgh in 1803. Col Clarks son also named Meriwether Lewis Clark named Churchill Downs in Kentucky after his mother's Churchill's family.

I dont think Lewis Sr was the Col. Jr was the Col and that is probably what threw me. And i cant find much on Jr's wives or children it does make mention that Richard Ten Broeck was his father n law and played a large part in his horse trading.. What i do have on Abigail that may be of some help to you is :: They married in January 1834 and raised seven children before her death in 1852 after her death is when Jr goes to live with his aunt and cousins in KY it doesnt speak much of the other 6 siblings. After the war, Clark moved to Louisville, Kentucky, and resumed his engineering career. He married Jula Davidson on December 30, 1865

Good luck Larry and Have a great week

Kandis Mangrum Bonnet
