Scott may be the one who did inventoyr of gravestones in Lloyd family cemetary at Wye House. probably around time of Caddy;s death in 1982. Inventory eventually went to Peggy Wiemers and then to JoAnne Bowie..

Ward Clore died in connection with a bank robbery, in Arizona, phonex? JoAnne remembers parents saying Ward went after bank robbers and was killed? in the effort.

... shows dates born 29 Mar 1931 and died 19 Oct 1962. both entries have parents with spelling variations in each.

Cindy Clore

provides updates on Clore and related branches.

Aug 2017 My name is Cindy Clore and I am married to Richard Scott Clore (whose father was William Ward Clore, Jr. "Ward" and grandmother was Catherine DeWolf Lloyd Clore).  We were in Washington DC a couple of weeks ago and spent the day with Patti Wiemers and she shared your website with me.  What an amazing job you have done!!!

I believe from everything I have read, that Scott's grandmother went by the name of Catty....with a "y". I'm not sure if he is the one that did the list of burials, but it might have been something he found in his grandmother's stuff and just passed it on. Catty was great about documenting people and places.

We have tons of pictures. When Scott's grandparents died, he got about 20 of their photo albums and there are great pictures in there of Wye House and relatives. Many, many pictures of the three sisters (Marguerite, Scrap and Catty and their parents). Honestly, these are pictures that should be scanned in and shared with all the family. Sometime if you are in the Phoenix area, stop by--You would probably love some of these pictures. At some point, I can go through some of these albums and find pics for you.

Sept 2017

That's about all I have for Lloyd's family.

Here is some info on Richard Scott Clore's family. Forgive me if this is too much. Not sure how much detail you want but you can pick and choose what you need.

Richard Scott Clore married Michelle Daniels in 1975 and they were divorced in 1983. They had two children:

Richard Scott Clore, Jr. born 7-10-1980. He is married to Tina Corey and they have one daughter Sage Corey Clore, born on 2-18-2016.

Catherine Danielle Clore, born 2-24-1983. She is married to Justin Plunkett and they have two children, Maggie Breann Plunkett, born 4-12-2008 and Nixon Royce Plunkett, born 11-24-2009.

Richard Scott Clore married Cynthia Renee Nannenga (ME!!!) on 6-2-1984. We have two children, David William Clore, born 12-26-1988 and Michael Ivan Clore, born 3-27-1990. Both are single and have no children.

I don't have much information on my husband's sister, Sheryl. We have no contact with her. I do know that she has been married a couple times and has one daughter, Anastacia ("Stacy") with her first husband, Clay Fluer (not sure of the spelling). The last we heard she was living in Minnesota.

Mary Alice was born on 9-13-1936 in Hot Springs, Arkansas (and died on 4-22-1990). would have been her 82nd birthday.

Yes she was the daughter of Harold and Myrtis Mae Tedrick and she went to North High. She was a close friend of Lloyd Clore and that's how she met Scott's dad. 10 Jan 2023 Good afternoon Arthur,

Hope this email finds you well. Just wanted to give you a couple of dates to add to your genealogy.

Harry Charles Ray III, born in 1957 passed away on May 22, 2021 in New Orleans.

Lloyd DeWolf (Clore) Ray Daigre, born in 1936 passed away on December 31, 2022, in Spokane, Washington. Burial will be at Wye House later this summer.

We made a trip to Maryland in August and spent an afternoon with Patti, Charlie and Katie. We also had an opportunity to go to Easton and make a visit to Wye House.

Note 3


Spokane - Lloyd deWolf Clore (Ray) Daigre, age 86, entered God's court with praise and thanksgiving on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2022, in her home in Spokane, WA. She was named by her mother before her birth... "be it boy or girl" ...she carries her family name, "Lloyd" {like a boy but she is a girl}.

Her greatest joy was sharing her FAITH and her relationship with Jesus Christ. The consummate prayer warrior. She is survived by her husband, Francis (Dinky) Heno Daigre, along with seven of her eight children, three of her four stepchildren, many grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Lloyd was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, a son, and a stepdaughter.
