Frederick Lohr and his wife, Doris, nee Frantz, both from Mecklenberg-Schwerin, came to Portsmith, Ohio, in 1838, where the husband died. In 1844, the widow, with her son Joseph, born on the ocean in 1838, and daughter, Mary, came to Quincy. The son learned to be a smith and died in 1889. In Quincy the widow Lohr married Charles Clark, a prominent contractor, and the children adopted the name Clark. Charles Clark, the game warden, is a son of Joseph (Lohr) Clark. Mary, the daughter of Frederick and Doris (Frantz) Lohr, became the wife of Joseph Esterly (Oesterle), chief of the fire department for some years.
