Clarke-3700 and Clerke-24 appear to represent the same person because: Nothing in the Unsourced profile suggests that it represents anyone other than Clerke-24. I adopted the Unsourced profile only in order to foster a merge.

Richardson does not list a John Clerke, Clerke-50, as one of George Clark/Clerke's 14 children. I recommend detaching him.
