Clara Belle Hedrick was born 13 Sep 1881. in Waiteville, Monroe Co., WV to James Joseph Hedrick and Viranda Elizabeth Bean ["Betty"]. Clara was one of 11 children born to the couple.

Clara married George Darlington Sr. on 11 Sep 1911 at Waiteville, Monroe Co., WV. The couple were wed by Rev. J. E. Browne.

To the best of my knowledge, George and Clara had one child: George Darlington Jr. who was born in Dec. 1912 and died 11 Oct 1918 in Wyoming County, WV from pellegra which is a vitamin deficiency disease most commonly caused by a chronic lack of niacin (vitamin B3) in the diet. He is buried at Salem Cemetery, Organ Cave, Greenbrier Co., WV.

George Sr. was born 27 Aug 1886 and died 12 Mar 1965. He is buried beside Clara.

Clara died on 05 Jan 1969. She is buried in Salem Cemetery, Organ Cave, Greenbrier County, West Virginia. She lies next to her husband and son.
