    Notes 
    • Info from John Bedecarre - jcbed@sbcglobal.net - April 2006: Sadie Clark Ambrose "married" her teacher, Graves Griffith and they departed for Iowa/Missouri and on to San Francisco. My Grandmother was Sadie Clark Griffith. She "married" my grandfather, Graves Griffith...that would be her only marriage...they lived with us until their deaths.

      ~From John Bedecarre: Their daughter, Gladys, was my mother. She married John Bedecarrats (name changed to Bedecarré) and I am their son...l'm now 83 years old and somewhat technologically challenged. Sadie was a student of my grandfather (Graves) and was ordered "out of the house, never to darken my door again," by her mother Lavinia, in the middle of a winter night....a younger brother found his sister in a "compromising" position with her boy friend, and told Lavinia. Sadie went west and she and Graves had their first son Victor, in Coin Iowa (near Council Bluffs). I've always thought she stayed with a McKisson? Their second son Gerald was born in Kansas City, Missouri, not far from Coin. My mother was born in San Francisco in 1900, not too long before the
      earthquake 100 years ago this week. I have excerpts from letters Marty Metzler obtained from E.E. McKisson written in the 1880s, in Morristown and Brilliant, OH.
