marriage date is a few years too late - dau. Elizabeth b. 1690 - I can add citation later; there is a birth record for a Catherine Clark on that date but there needs to be some evidence to identify her as the one who married Robert Kerby; no Catherine Tompkins in parish register (maybe they had no children together)

Catherine is 21 degrees from Michael Cayley, 22 degrees from Rick Rescorla and 14 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
