      Norvin Clontz observes, "It has been said that MATILDA CLARK CLONTZ was blind.
      The census data does not indicate that she was blind; however, she could have
      become blind in later years. Cataracts on the eye were common during those
      years."

      -----

      Writes Thelma Penley, "Matilda Clark Clontz known as 'Blind Granny', she came
      to live with daughter, Etta, after (Etter) married 'Boe' Clontz."
