Thomas Clark's second wife.

I have information to add to this page. Thomas Clark, after Leah died in 1889, married Ruhama Liston Doran b 1850 d Dec 31, 1926 Salem Oregon. Ruhama is my husband's great grandmother. Ruhama Liston married Francis Doran who died in 1883. They had several children. Ruhama being 33 years old, when he died, married Thomas Clark in 1893. (She would be 43 years old at that time...Thomas would have been 65 yrs at the time of their marriage) Ruhama had a child Jessie E. Clark (Lowe) May 21, 1891. The child was around 2 when they married. She had the name Clark, so Thomas must have adoped her. After their marriage they had two more children. Bessie Grace Clark b Aug 1894 and Thomas M. Clark b Jan 1897.
I question this picture being Leah with Thomas Clark. Look at the ages of the two shown. The lady is clearly much younger than the man. There was only a little over a years difference in Leah and Thomas's age. I know people didn't write names on the back of pictures and I believe the picture may have said Thomas and wife. Someone who didn't know he was married the second time, may have taken for granted this was Leah. I believe this is Thomas and Ruhama's wedding picture. She being 43 and he being 65.
That's what I think!! I welcome any other coments on this matter. Would love to hear from some of the grandchildren or greatgrandchildren of Leah and Thomas Clark.
