Looking for information on "Red" Clark who used to "ride the range" in
the Panhandle of Texas and possibly owned land there at one time. He married Nancy Davis
and had two children Elbert b Abt 1885 and Estella Mae b Abt 1889. Red and Nancy both died
suddenly while travelling through Van Zandt Co/Kaufman Co Texas in 1890. Nancy Davis Clark
had previously been married to Unknown Lovell and had Ada, Emma or Amma, John, Joe, and
George Lovell. Lovell relatives took in these children but no relatives of Clark or Davis
found so Elbert and Estella Mae raised by unrelated families. "Red" Clark was a
big, burly, red-headed man with military bearing, covered with knife scars. Nancy Davis
may have been of Indian ancestry. They may have travelled from New Mexico just prior to
their deaths. A little more info may be found at
