||A Love Story|
John Henry Clifford & Della Mae Carter
Della Carter was raised in San Mateo, California. At the same time, John Clifford was growing up in San Francisco, where he was born. John had been on his own from an early age, but was close to a large extended family of cousins. His uncle, John Reilly and his family, lived next door to the Carters on Humboldt Street in San Mateo. John Clifford spent a lot of time visiting his cousin Mervyn in San Mateo.
By the time Della was 15, she had decided that "she had learned everything she needed to know," so she quit school and took a job as a milliner's assistant. Meanwhile, John Clifford was working for the Scott family in their grocery store in San Francisco.
After courting over the back fence, Johnny and Della eloped and were married at City Hall in San Francisco on October 12, 1918. They later told of how they were on Market Street when the Armistice was declared at the end of WWI, and how they joined the jubilant celebrations.
Although the Carters were quite shocked at their daughter's surprise nuptials, they welcomed Johnny into the family with open arms. Edmund Carter, Della's father, was an architect and builder, and he taught Johnny his trade. Johnny spent the rest of his life building houses in San Mateo.
Johnny and Della had 3 children, John Joseph (Jack), Catherine Agnes (Kay), who is Joshâ??s Grandma, and Robert Francis. They struggled financially through the Great Depression; John worked for the WPA for awhile, and Della worked for 25 cents an hour doing ironing for the wealthier residents of San Mateo. They had a long and happy life. Their home was always filled with friends and family, and lots of love and laughter. One of our fondest memories is of Johnny entertaining us at family gatherings with one of the many old songs he knew.
John and Della had been married for 66 years when John passed in 1984. Della joined her Johnny in 1988. They are both missed greatly by their family.

||Anne Dudley Bradstreet: An American Poet|
(Born: c. 1612; Died: September 16, 1672)
The first important American poet, Anne Dudley Bradstreet was born in England of prosperous parents who had embraced the Puritan faith. She was married at 16 to Simon Bradstreet. With her parents and husband, she sailed to North America in 1630 as a member of the Puritan group that founded the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Unlike most women at that time, Anne Bradstreet grew up with a love of books and received an excellent education in literature, history, and the classics. She wrote poems while she raised eight children, kept a home, and served as a hostess for her husband, a governor of the colony.

Her brother-in-law took her poems to England without her knowledge. They were published there in 1650 as The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America. Ironically, these ? the only poems published during her lifetime ? are today considered her least interesting. Inspired by English metaphysical poets, they are long and often dull, dealing with conventional subjects such as religion as seen through the seasons. Contemporary critics and defenders of her work prefer her witty poems on daily life and her warm and loving verses to her husband and children, including one on her feelings upon the death of a month-old grandchild.
Her writings and the few records that remain about Anne Bradstreet reveal her to be a woman of high intelligence and courage. She was painfully aware of her society's disapproval of women who ventured beyond their domestic duties. In one of her poems, she proclaimed, "I am obnoxious to each carping tongue,/That says my hand a needle better fits!" And she dared to remain a friend of Anne Hutchinson, even as the men in the colony, including her husband and father, worked to banish the dissenter from their ranks.
Anne Bradstreet's literary gifts; her exploration of the universal themes of devotion to family, love, and loss; and her courage in standing by controversial friends make her an attractive model for women ? and men ? everywhere.
"To my Dear and Loving Husband" from Several Poems.
Anne Bradstreet. Boston: John Foster, 1678
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

||From a number of different sources, it has been determined that Richard came to Massachusetts in 1635. The manifest list for the Ship DEFENCE, sailing from London, England, in August of that year and arriving at Boston, MA, on 3 October 1635, shows Richard, at age 33, to be a miller. The family's early habitation in the Old Bay Colony, however, is well documented with a number of the early generations living in the geographic region which has become known today as Newton, Massachusetts. ||PARKE, Richard (I4258)

||Gamaliel Reynolds was ordained into the Baptist church and baptized. He evidently left the church for a period to join the Separatist Movement, but returned to the Baptist Church in 1788. All of Gamaliel and Sarah's sons except Elisha served in the Revolutionary War (including our grandfather John). At least one source indicated that Gamaliel (by now known as Gamaliel Sr.) may have also served. Gamaliel was a stonemason by trade and a man of powerful frame and imposing appearance. He had no education, but had considerable native talent and was keen and witty.|

||here is a brief history i have written in form from a relative (this is in her words):|
My great, great grandfather Alexis Bernard was born in Paris, France in 1837. He came to America in 1843 with his father, also Alexis, to a farm near Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin. The senior Alexis was, by family tradition, an official, perhaps a secretary, to one of the Napoleons. The younger Alexis made pearl buttons from shell found in the Mississippi River. He married Josephine DuCharme in 1860. Alexis died in 1917. Their family, all of whom were born on the farm near Eastman, WI: Albert, Adella, Emile, Marie, Charles(My Grandfarther), Zelia (Sister Lucretia), Edmund, Amelia (Sister Hortense), Alfred, Eguenia (Sister Cunnise), and Clemance.
