The Essex Line

After not looking at my Essex family for a few years, I returned to review my Clark family on my father's line. William Clark married Elizabeth Coles in the 1840s. Elizabeth will lead me to Somerset, but before I travelled there, I wanted to sort out confusion over a census return regarding their daughter Eliza and her family. Job done, I'm pleased to say. I followed the lives of Eliza's descendants to discover the son of one line being killed on the Western Front during WWI. Another descendant was killed whilst performing a night exercise at a Lincolnshire air base during WWII.
