    Does this refer to Edgar A. Clarke, born in New Hartford, CT in 1857? Today I was researching his relationship to my grandmother and came across your website. Censuses list his occupation as watchmaker. What are the dates of the newspaper article and the photograph? Thank you for your help.

  2. It does refer to that Edgar Clarke. Both the newspaper and the photograph date from c. 1900, unfortunately I don’t have a closer date.
