Hi Lisa,

I have a David CLARK/E in my family. Father born in Ireland;David born
Manhattan NYC. There are 3 married CLARK/E brothers from County Cavan, all in
the shoe business, all with children. I have to check just which family my
David belongs to.

David is not a common given name amoung Irish. Even if we are not
connected, you know how the Irish named their children after sibs, parents, and
aunts and uncles. So, they may be some distant connection.

Do you have the DC for your David, or know his heritage?

Merry Christmas,
