2.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  There is a William CLARK (æ 10/12, b. Sep in GA) living in Cherokee Co., GA, with his parents, Noah & Mary (MARTIN) CLARK.  Dora isn't born yet, but I can't find her mother, either, though her uncle, John Henry CORBIN, is in Cherokee Co., GA.  The problem is, if there's a section of the Cherokee County census missing, could the record for Dora's future husband also be missing?  While the son of Noah & Mary is a near fit, he's not a great fit.  We need something additional to confirm this connection.
