I am Trying to find the origins of Charles de Clerck who has a liason/marriage? with Nettie Pickens of1856-1944 resulting in birth of George Ulysses De Clerck on Mar 13, 1879. George later assumed the surname of his stepfather Richard Brand 1850-1902. There is some family myth that Charles De Clerck was a French Canadian. I have been found a record confirm his birthdate and place.
Would appreciate. assist.
