      from Jerry Clarke
      Cosmos Parsons referred to Grace Greenwell Clarke in his will, but I never had the impression that she was his daughter. But Mary Donnelly has misinterpreted this will above to conclude that Grace Greenwell was actually Grace Parsons. Thus she has a major error from the beginning. it Says: To dau. Mary Mahoney and Grace Clark. it does not say to Daughters Mary Mahoney and Grace Clark.
