Huguette Clark's Family

Tale of Two Wills
A newly publicized will by an heiress to a Montana copper mining fortune leaves most of her $400 million estate to her family, while a will signed just weeks later left nothing to relatives.

The childless Huguette Clark died in May at age 104.  

The article stated that Huguette's mother was a Michigan native.  Wikipedia identified her as
Anna Eugenia La Chapelle.  Anna, a harpist, was living with her widowed mother, Philomena, and siblings in Butte, Montana, in 1900.  This MSNBC site has notes and pictures of the Clark family.

Clark County, Nevada, was named after Huguette's father, William Andrews Clark.
