Debi: I have three sisters for Clarence. A match on those would help confirm this Clarence matches yours. Emma (mar. Harry Ramsdell) d. 1/21/1956 in Eustis, FL, Ella, Helen. The sisters are not shown at WikiTree.

Robert, I am so sorry. I never got notified about your response to my question. This is not a match for my Clarence as he had only one sister, Jessie I (Brown) Washington.

I notice that this profile has had Category:Recycle_Unknowns added to it. The current privacy setting does not allow the profile to be worked on. Would you either remove the category or reduce the privacy level. Thanks!

Would you take a look at my Clarence Brown [Brown-40940] and see if you think there's a match? You're would be the last potential match I'm trying to clear up for mine.

Thanks, Debi
