“CLARE. The first plat of the town site was in NW 1/4 Sec. 33-155-52, Ardoch Twp. in 1881 with the title of Clare, probably for Clare County, Ireland. Later plats continued to show this section of town as the “Original Town Site of Clare, ” but the name never appears to have been actually used by local residents. When settlement began, the site was called KIMBALL, and when that name was found to be duplicated in what is now South Dakota, the name was changed to ARDOCH. Clair and Claire are erroneous spellings. “2
