Biography

Birth

Clara was born about 1864. Her maiden name was "Prettyman". (SS Index)

Name

Her Hocąk name was ChaChaRooKaWinKah, which should be for Cācarukąwįga, "She Covers the Air," in reference to birds. This would be from cāc, "air"; haruką́, "to cover"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.

In some censuses her Anglo name is "Clara", but in others she is called "Carrie". (1905, 1916) She is called "Curley" in the 1905 Wisconsin State census. This is an attempt to transcribe the name "Carrie" spoken with a Hocąk accent, where the letter /r/ sounds like the English letter /l/.

Death

She passed away in 1928, and is buried at Block 23, Lot 03 in Spring Grove Cemetery, Wisconsin Dells, Columbia County, Wisconsin. (Find a Grave)
