Clara (who's middle name might have been Catherine or Katherine) may have been born 15 Apr 1913 in Quinn, Pennington County, SD, USA, and died 13 Feb 1990 in Rapid City, Pennington County, SD, USA.

Did she lie on her marriage license so she could be married without parental consent? This current restriction on marriage for girls is 18, 16 with parental consent, but what were the age restrictions in South Dakota in 1930?

Clara married _____ LaDeaux, as noted by her surname in her brother Albert's obituary. [obituary-albert-breck-1990]
