Their names were: Phillip Clouder died Aug 5, 1902 in Placerville or Quartsburg; Mary Clouder died Feb 16, 1911 in Placerville or Quartsburg; Walter Clouder born Dec 12, 1879 in Placerville or Qaurtsburg; Hellen (or Helena) Clouder born in 1868 in Placerville or Quartsburg; Eva Clouder born in 1871 in Placerville or Quartsburg; Anna Clouder born May 13, 1875 in Placerville or Quartsburg; I have also found the names of Mary M and Lena Clouder listed in some old documents from the same area.
