Notes for Clara Buehl:

[Interview Notes: Edith (Comfort) Sundean] born in Berlin. ' She was
"High German" '.

[Stories from the Grace (Cougher) Nadeau's family via Frances Miller,
Clara's mother died on the ship while coming to America. Clara had
several brothers that settled in Pennsylvania. It was believe that Clara
might have been the only girl in the family.

After John Glover's first wife, Eliza, died shortly after giving birth,
he hired Clara to be a "wet nurse" for his young baby. Clara's husband
(unknown) had just been killed in an explosion (a mine?) and at the time
she was expecting their child. Clara's baby died soon after being born.
Clara was then able to nurse John's child. Soon after, John and Clara
were married.

[Interview: Bernice (Nadeau) via Reba (Nadeau) email]
Reba: "When I told Bernice about not finding any record of Clara dying,
being buried where, etc. she immediately said that is because she was
buried in a pauper's grave. She remembers very vividly our mother
telling her that and Bernice said she asked our mother what is a pauper
and was told about when a person dies and has no money or anyone to bury
them then they are put in a pauper's grave. They came out of her mouth
so quickly I am sure that is what she was told."
