Notes for Noah Clark
His death certificate records Noah Clark, age 69, born 24 Jan 1872 in Morehead, Ky, died 6 Jan 1951 in Oak Hill, Fayette Co., West Virginia, married, occupation miner, father Samuel Clark, mother’s maiden name Elizabeth Fraley, cause of death intestinal obstruction, informant Mrs. Noah Clark, burial in High Lawn Memorial Park, Oak Hill.
The date of birth is very wrong in this record, and does not match the reported age at death.
Noah’s date of birth was listed as Jan 1881 (age 19) on the 1900 census, but he is enumerated as 27 in 1910, 38 in 1920, and 47 in 1930. So I suspect that he may have really been 17 in 1900 and that his year of birth is either 1882 or 1883.
Notes for Mollie Cornett
Her father’s 1931 will lists her as Mollie Cornett Clark of Oak Hill, W. Va. (Oak Hill is the largest town in Fayette Co. WV, although not its county seat.)
In her mother's obituary in Sept 1959, she is mentioned as a survivor, "Mrs. Molly Boggs, Frankford, W. Va."
