Birth record has name as being Mary Marguerite Widge. My mother indicated that all male children were named Joseph and all female children were named Mary in accordance with French-Canadian custom. (Something I have since verified by a letter from the Good Shepherd Parish in Berlin - see notes for Isaac Wedge.)

Alternate birth record lists name as Mary M. Wedge.
Good Shepherd parish records list her as Marie Marguerite Madeleine Wedge
Apparently Wedge family members commonly have two or more names. (For instance, Ronald was usually called "Tom.") Madeleine apparently called herself "Mattie" and "Mal" when younger (from inscriptions on photos). And early documents list her as "Madeleine Margaret Wedge."
Residence of parents: 63 Granite St., Berlin, NH.
Death occurred of congestive heart failure at City Hospital, Martinsburg, West Virginia at 11:38 p.m. Son Wesley was present. Death was sudden, about 17 hours from onset of acute symptoms. A minor heart attack had apparently occurred earlier in the week.

- Note: I have never been able to verify by record the marriage of Wesley Harry Clark and Madeleine Margaret Wedge. According to Jack Clark in a conversation in September 1997, the marriage was a Mexican one not recognized by the United States government.
