NORAH CLOUGH HARTZELL

Norah, the daughter of Mary Alexander and Alfred Clough, was born April 1, 1878, at Point of Rocks, Arizona. She attended the School of Home Economics in Boston.

On April 15, 1914, in Phoenix, she was married to Dr. Clark Kennedy Hartzell, a dentist. The Miner of April 17, 1914, headlined "Cupid's Forceps Ends Pretty Romance," and reads "Dr. Clark Kennedy Hartzell had abandoned the forlorn life of a bachelor and was at last in the realm of a happy benedict... Miss Nora Clough is gifted with a fascinating and vivacious personality that has made her a favorite of many."

The Hartzells made their home at 228 South Pleasant Street in Prescott. Norah was a member of the Monday Club and one of the original members of the Historical Society of Prescott. She and Sharlot Hall were chosen as delegates to represent Northern Arizona at the General Federation of Women's Clubs biennial conference in Los Angeles.

Norah and her husband gave a bequest to the Sharlot Hall Museum making possible the building of a room for their Indian artifacts. Norah's mother, Mary Alexander Clough, and her grandmother, Catharine Alexander, are also represented in the Rose Garden.


Norah died in January 1957 and was buried in Mountain View Cemetery.
