Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on our family history for about 25 years. When I started we were living in Lodi, CA and I was working on my husband's and my adoptive (Bergmann/Oderkirk) & birth (O'Regan-Davey/Thomas) history. Since that time our daughter has married & we have two grandsons, so now I have more family to research. We now live in Clark County, WA & I am so happy to have Find A Grave, and will add more information as time goes on.
There are two Gedcom files on Ancestry.com one is private- if you would like to view, please e-mail me. The Osterheil/Westgarth/Bergmann Family Tree is the adoptive side and it is public; Diana Lee's Family Tree is my birth history and it is private. My birth parents were young, high school students and both lived in St. Helens, Columbia County, Oregon when I was born in 1951. I was born at the Salvation Army White Shield Home in Portland and placed for adoption at Albertina Kerr, where I was adopted in February 1952.

Thanks, Diane

RE: Clark Family History
Barb,
Thank you again...finding you was just a great boost. (You know how disheartening the research can be.) Walt is related to Rowlands? Wouldn't that be too cool to be doubly related? I found another contact in Knoxville, IA. Melvin Temple, Jr. I believe he has posted to some of your threads as well on ancestry.com. He doesn't have the line back as far as we do, but figured I could stand to help him and give him the missing generations. LOL! He has pictures of my husband, Rick's, GGGGrandparents...which I just cannot pass up begging for :) Have sent our personal info: address, phone, other email to the email you sent this morning. Please feel free to contact me...When you and Walt come to Clarksville, let me know...told Dave that we would come visit this summer. Can't wait to talk with you more....

Clark Family History
Mrs. Westgarth,
I have married into the Clark line and traced my family back to 1520 in England. My husband's line is through, you guessed it, Archibald, Sr. and his son Gabriel. I found a thread you posted on Ancestry. I am a photographer here for findagrave, and thought I'd try to find you herer...also tried facebook lol. I have complete genealogy from Archibald to present date. I found Archibald Jr's line and am in contact with his descendant Dave Clark. Dave still lives in Clarksville, IA. I have his complete history on disk. Was just so excited to find you and swap info. Have jokingly talked with Dave about bringing all three sons' lines to a reunion (but I am secretly serious about this). Please feel free to call 641-535-2034 or email at seashorebound65@yahoo.com......can't wait to hear from you

RE: Mortimer O. Clark
I feel that you should have contol of the memorial for Mortimer O. Clark so I transferred it to you. I feel he should be with family. I did link him to his wife but can't link him to his children since someone else created the memorials. You can contact them to have them linked to their father and mother. Have a great day.

RE: Jane I. McCrery Clark
You are very welcome. Our genealogical society had a huge stack of old Sylvia newspapers, and we are clipping all of the obituaries and adding them to findagrave.

Hope you have a great day.

RE: Mortimer O. Clark
Is this person the M. O. Clark buried in the Coolidge Cemetery that I created a memorial for? He has a military stone with no information on the grave stone other than his name. I want to make sure that we are talking about the same person.
