Elder Banta and family were to leave here for Thermopolis Friday, where he was to hold a meeting, but were detained.  They will leave Monday.  He will be met there by Elder J. F. Powers of Ottawa, Kansas.

 

NOTE. A Clark in the Ten Sleep area is listed in the 1900 census.  It is suspected that this might be Dol Clark, but no certain connection can be found at this time as he is listed as James Clark.  The 1910 census shows them living in the Worland area with two children born to them, one daughter listed as living and one child as dead.  This child might be James Clark, named after his father James Clark and buried in Ten Sleep. This is speculation however. A few references to Elder Banta are included.
