I noticed three remarkable men in the biographies section during my perusal. One became the town's mercantile giant; another dominated publishing and later the coal market for the entire state; the third became Governor and later a federal Secretary.
What did these men have in common? They all started out as simple men - a clerk, a printer, a country lawyer. Then they all married a Clark sister - daughters in a founding farming and stock trading family in the area, educated and cultured. From then on, their husbands' progress was stratospheric, success after success.
I imagine these three sisters, having tea on Sunday, comparing notes and planning their husband's lives. Changing the history of the state and nation.
What do we know about them? Not even their first names. They are all listed as Mrs somebody.
