A Ghost Town – Clyde, North Dakota

People who don’t cherish their elderly have forgotten whence they came and whither they go. ~Ramsey Clark

I don’t know anything about Clyde, North Dakota.  What drew me there was the opportunity to seek a connection to my great-great grandfather, Oscar Odell Brown.  Looking for a better way of life, Oscar moved his young family to Clyde.  Instead, the town claimed his life in March of 1908.  I never found evidence of his having been there, but I found my connection in walking where Oscar walked.  I think you might enjoy the walk too.
