Subject: Hubert Clark and Freda Bertha Jess ??

Its been a while since I wrote to this list. But I am trying to help
out a friend from work, regarding her family. So here it goes:
Hubert Clark was born September 7, 1888 in Cornwall - Tideford,
England/Ireland. He first marriage was to Freda Bertha Jess who was
born about 1891. I am not sure when they came over to Canada. Hubert
and Freda came to Calgary Alberta. There was a daughter born to this
couple in about 1913. Hubert went off to fought in World War I and
leaving behind Freda and the daughter. On November 12, 1918, Freda died
of the flu and she was buried in Union Cemetery on November 14, 1918.
Hubert, however, was not back from the war yet and when he did come back
there was no sign of the daughter. And the child was never found,
according to the family.
Now I have checked Union and Burnsland Cemeteries here in Calgary and
didnt find the little girl, who is believed to be named ILENE. The
family thought that maybe the child died during the flu epidemic of 1918
as well, and buried with her mother, but according to Union Cemetery
records as well as the records keep at city hall, she wasn't.
Hubert Clark went on to marry Sarah Louise La Roy (LaRoy). The La Roy
family settled out near Three Hills Alberta for a time. Hubert and
Sarah are both buried in Mountain View Cemetery, just outside of
If you have heard of this family or know what might have happened to the
little girl I would love to hear from you. Also, if you might know
other sources to check; where the child might have been placed after
the death of her mother. As of 1919 the only Children Aid Societies I
found where: Salvation Army Children's Home, Children's Aid Society
Shelter and Presbyterian Social Service Home, here in Calgary, where
might have she been placed if there was no family to look after her?
If you know anything it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your time
Calgary AB Canada
