  1. Dear Mr Clark,

    I am the daughter of Lester Cohlan who past away back in 1989. I would so much appreciate it if you could contact me at 801-363-2572 so I can ask you a few questions that you might be able to help me out with. The question is would you be able to locate my mother Rebecca J Armstrong/Cohlan who I have not been able to locate since the age of 10. My father my grandmother Freda who past away about 6yrs ago and my stepmother Judy who also past away about 5yrs ago are the only ones who new her whereabouts but for some unknown reason they would not help me locate her. I am 50yrs old now with a daughter and son and 5 grandchildren and I would love to be able to meet up with her if she is still alive and let her know of her great grandchildren and her grandchildren. This has been a mistory of mine for the past 35yrs. I have no clue to what her DOB his where she went to school, or her parents name, not even her ss#. So I am asking if you are the Don Clark that was a good friend of my fathers I really would desparetly need you’re help on locating her, or just to talk to you about my father.

    Michelle Sobel/Cohlan
