Hi David, If I'm the Pat you sent messages to, well I didnt get them. And
thus I am sorry you have such frustration.
The Clark family of yours were in Wait's party, mostly from Buckinghanshire
and sailed on the "Zoroaster". Charles Clark was listed as a carpenter. I
have a huge Brown family also 1820, but no Isabella that I wot of.
