Pre-Back to the Future Part III

Little is known about her life between 1861 and 1885, except she became a schoolteacher and has been doing the job for some years before 1885. When she heard that the position of the new schoolteacher in Hill Valley was available, she decided to leave New Jersey behind and head out West to start a new life in California (she may have been influenced by her parents, who met on the Oregon Trail according to the animated series, although this detail is not taken as canon by many fans).

These events were altered when Dr Emmett "Doc" Brown arrived in 1885 in his DeLorean time machine. Doc volunteered to pick up Clara from the train station, where they met and fell in love at first sight. Sadly, the next day Doc was shot in the back by Buford Tannen, and died 2 days later. Clara helped pay for Doc's tombstone, engraving it with "Beloved Clara". Marty McFly finds this tombstone in 1955 with the 1955 Doc (aged 35) and heads back to 1885 to save the 1985 Doc (aged 65) from being murdered.

As such, Doc doesn't go to pick up Clara at the station - if he never meets her, he can't fall in love with her - and as before, Clara hires a horse. It is spooked by the snake, but luckily for Clara Doc and Marty are around to save her life. Once again Clara and Doc fall in love at first sight, which caused problems for Marty who was anxious to get back home to 1985. Doc and Clara attended the Hill Valley festival on September 5, 1885 and spent the night watching the stars through her telescope. They discovered a common love for the novelist Jules Verne. Doc soon realised that he had to say goodbye to Clara and go back to the future. He tried telling her where he was going but she did not believe him and slapped him.

However, next morning, September 6, Clara discovered that Doc was telling the truth after seeing the demonstraion model on how the time machine was going to get back to the future. She ran to catch up with Doc and Marty, who had "borrowed" a train to push the DeLorean up to 88mph. Clara tried to get Doc's attention, but due to the loud noise of the train he couldn't hear her. She managed to get into the cab and blew the train whistle, thus alerting Doc and Marty to her presence. Doc went back to get her so as to take her with them to 1985, but they couldn't get to the DeLorean in time and Marty was forced to go back to 1985 without them. September 6 is the 249th day of the year (250th in leap years). ...


The DeLorean had been destroyed by a train once back in 1985 (Marty having gotten out in time) so he couldn't come back to 1885 to pick up Doc and Clara. As such Doc started work on a new time machine built into a steam train, as neither he nor Clara (who should have been dead) belonged in 1885.

December 15 is the 349th day of the year (350th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1885 is a common year starting on Thursday. ...


Over the next 10 years, Doc and Clara worked on the train as their family grew. Clara gave birth to the couple's first son, Jules in 1886, followed by younger brother Verne in 1888.

Back to the Future: The Animated Series

The animated series is not taken as canon by many Back to the Future fans, but it does reveal that Clara, along with the rest of the family, moved to the 20th century. The Browns live in a farmhouse outside of Hill Valley by 1991 and Clara has settled into 20th Century life very well, and became a teacher at Hill Valley Elementary.
