“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us;
what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”

The miniature oil portrait on porcelain seen on my profile page is of my direct ancestor, Joseph C. Clarke (1793-1875), who was a Veteran of the War of 1812. His Find A Grave memorial number is 57481085.
