There were a few 'hits' on my search engine for a Rev. John Claflin
of Eaton Rapids, Mich...apparently he was a Methodist Minister.
Donald seemed to like older women.
From this info I'm sure we can find out more about her: if she
married and had children, and when she died. Perhaps she has
surviving relatives who would have some 'stories' about her
friendship with Blanding...or if not, maybe they would like to find
out about the connection.
