    Family sources name Clara as Clarissa Daisy.

    William P Hardin is reported as a Son-in-law of Sarah.  But we aretold Sarah has borne 3 children, and they are all in this household.William must be the widower of one of Sarah's step daughters.  Becauseof age, that would have to be Avalona, daughter of Catherine Davis.
