Friday's Photo: Marguerite Cook Clark




 

This is a beautiful picture of Marguerite Cook Clark. I will guess that it was taken in the late 1920s or early 1930s in Louisiana. 

Marguerite was researching her family history as early as the 1950s. I have copies of many letters she wrote to other Bryan family researchers. including one to my father. She saved many photos, documents, and letters related to her family in Bienville Parish, Louisiana. 

Marguerite and I both descend from Reddick Bryan and Elizabeth Regan who settled in Northwest Louisiana in 1838. 

Marguerite would have loved the computer. Email is so much faster than the USPS and think of what she would have done with Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. 

Thank you to Marguerite's youngest daughter for finding me and telling me about her mother's files. AND, thank you to her oldest daughter for allowing me to invade her home and spend days at her dining room table reading files and looking at photos.
