Clark, Mrs. Ada I., May 30, 1913

(notes) Wife of Geo A. Clark, died Spokane, May 24 of cancer. Age 52. Survived by husband and one son. Burial Edwall Cemetery. (Citizen)  

Guess I don't know where the Enterprise Cemetery north of Davenport is, and it is easier to send this to you to see if you know where they sent the body. Then I tacked on another with the same surname, must be his brother. Wasn't familiar to me. These are in a growing file, 115 pages in it at present, each with some connection to Odessa, so want to keep the file together, but of course, you can pull these to use elsewhere if you like. Curious tho about Enterprise, and why the two brothers were not buried together.
