\Vhat started out as a slender sapling has grovm to a mighty 
tree with many branches. What was to have been a brief recital 
of personal family history has expanded until now there are re- 
corded over 1300 descendants of our common progenitors, William 
Clark and his wife, Mary Catherine ZigL ar Clark. They live in 
28 states of the union, with most of them in California, Illinois, 
Kansas, Oklahoma, Ohio and Oregon, 

As the writer searched further, she fo\ind others interested 
in the same project, and the combined efforts of all have brought 
within the covers of this book eight generations born in America, 

With the passing of years, facts have been increasingly hard 
to obtain. Vie have not delved into personal lives, recording only 
vital statistics, and have included no biographical material past 
the second and third generations. Much interesting material came 
to us, but with so. many individuals to consideip, it became imposs- 
ible to include the information, except in a few cases where in- 
dividuals are mentioned incidentally in their parents' biograph- 

In the early days of our family history, we note a predom- 
inance of farmers, and the trades necessary for day to day liv- 
ing. Education v;as not stressed. Today farming has fallen away, 
and we find amongst our nvimbers professional people, skilled art- 
isans, and many with artistic talents, such as music, art, and 
writing. Many have college degrees. We had hoped to give each 
one's trade or profession, his religious and lodge affiliation, 
war record, etc, but this wuld have filled many pages. We can 
give you only a brief resume of the data sent to us. 

There is a predominance of protestants, the Methodists lead- 
ing, with a large number of Catholic families representing their 
faith. In this huge family many fought in the Civil War and 
World War I, Nearly all young men and some women served in one 
capacity or another in World War II and the Korean Conflict, 

The book is divided into nine chapters, one for each branch 
of the Clark family. You will find the families indexed separ - 
ately at the back of the book. This was done to avoid confusion, 
as there are some individuals with the same name, but in differ- 
ent branches. 

Members of the second and third generations are listed with 
their parents, Horo their birth, death and burial information 

is given. This information is not repeated in the section allot- 
ed to each second and third generation individual. His familyre- 
cord begins with his or her marriage record. This was don e to 
conserve space, 

THE NUMBERING SYSTEM: William Clark is 1-1 or number one of 
the first generation born in America, His children are listed 
^-1, 2-2, etc in order of their birth. The number procoding 
a person's name indicates his generation in America and his Chron- 
ological place in his family. Example: If your number is 5-1; 

this means you belong to the 5th generation in America and are 
the fourth child in your family. The number following your 
name is your parent's number. Only blood descendants are number- 
ed. Vfe are sorry we could not index every person appearing in 
the genealogy. 

We trust there are no errors in dates, la me spelling or 
facts. In cases where errors were apparent, we made an effort 
to verify. We give you the infer mation as it came to us. If 
the fault is ours, we apologiz o. 

I-Jhile the writer gathered some of the "fruit," credit must 
be given to those who did the bulk of the gathering. It might be 
said, Ihey picked the fruit, and she baked the pie," 

Tb Mr and Mrs Ross Mills of Urbana, Illinois goes credit for 
gathering the records of all families exclusive of the Gilberts, 
the Harvy and Walter Clark families, and s ome of the George Z. 
Clark family. They provided much information for the biographi- 
cal sketches, 

Mrs. Elizabeth Gilbert Rich of Hartford, Kansas is responsi- 
ble for the George Gilbert records, and gave the writer many bits 
of information, enabling her to trace several families, 

Mrs. Alice Gilbert Harris (now deceased) provided records 
for the Cha-les Gilbert and Marsh families, and provided the mat- 
erial for her father's biography. 

Mabel Clark Snyder of Goshen, Indiana we salute for her work 
on the Walter Clark families, and for providing important inform- 
ation from her father's diary, 

_ Mrs Predda Carpenter Barnes of Van Nuys, California collect- 
ed infer mation for the George Ziglar Clark family, and gave the 
writer much personal help. 

We also would like to acknowledge the cooperation of probate 
co^-rts, particularly those of Clark County Ohio and Montgomery 
Oounty Kansas, and other public agencies in helping all of us to 
procure records necessary for this work, 'The writer thanks the 
personnel of the los Angeles City Library Genealogical depart- 
ment for their help in research. 

We suggest your perusal of names in the genealogy to see how 
many have been passed down from generation to generation, parti- 
cularly Mary Catherine and Clark used as Christian name.

First Generation In America 

In the light of conflicting family stories, concerning 
William Clark and his wife, Mary Catherine Ziglar Clark, it 
has not been an easy task piecing together biographies for the 
pair. We give ydu some facts from authoritative sources, and 
fill in the gaps with bits of family 1 re. We've tried to 
paint an acceptable and reasonable picture out of facts and 
opinions, however conjectural. 

From the Walter Clark family (grandson of William) comes 
the information that five Clark brothers arrived in New York 
from Ireland. One of the brothers, a brick and stone mason, 
parted company with his brothers there, never to see them again. 
He Is believed to have gone to Pennsylvania to ply his trade, 
since this type of work was scarce in Now York. 

This brother's name is not knoTnm„ Whether he brought a 
wife from Ireland or married in this country is not known. Nor 
do we know how many children he had; but according to the l850 
Census for Clark County Ohio, a son, William Clark, age 79 was 
born m Pennsylvania. Walter Clark seemed to think it was this 
William who came from Ireloi^d, making his way to Ohio, In view 
ol tradition in other Clark families, backed up by the l850 
census, this seems highly improbable^ 

William Clark was born August 25, 1771 and our authority 
for this is the Clark family Bible and a Clark family scroll, 
bearing the names and birth dates and marriage date for William 
and Mary Catherine Ziglar Clark, his wife^ The birth dates for 
their children also are inscribed. The Bible and Scroll are 
in the possession of the Gibson family in Illinois. 

According to Walter Clark, his grandfather, William mi- 
grated to Ohio sometime before his marriage December 28, l807. 
Quoting from his diary, "One day William got a "mote" in his 
eye, aid Mary "Elizabeth" had compassion on him, as he stopped 
at her home for a drink, and she offered to take the stone from 
his eye. He thanked her, and asked her name. Time passed, six 
or seven years. He often thought of her kindness. One day, 
while walking along the road he stopped to rest in the shade of 
a house. He asked for a drink. There came a fine lookins 
young woman about 20 years old, and she asked him if he wanted 
to wash and cool off„ When he wont to leave, ho asked her 
name, as she reminded him of the little girl who had been kind 
to him years before, and when she told him, he was almost 
Speechless for her name was Mary "ELizaboth" Ziglar. He asked 
11 he could call and see her, and he sought to make her his wife," 

v,^n • ^^"°f ^^l middle name was Catherine, Mabel Clark Snyder 
dllTfnl T^'^'^H't^ ^°"^^^^d her name with that of her oldest 
np^S So^ ^."-^^^^^S^ °^ possibly that of his own wife, who was

andfh^?^ ^^ ^r ^PP<^^^! written this way in the family scroll; 
?Ms m^e? ' ^'°''^° ^^^"^ ''^''''^'' ^^^^^^ "P^ll^^ his name in' 

Because William wns surprised when he met Mary Catherine 
the second time, we believe the site of their second meeting 
was different from that of their first meeting, viien Mary Cath- 
erine was a child of 13 or lij.. It is possible the first en- 
counter may have been in Pennsylvania, Since Walter claims 
William met her in Ohio the second time, it very possibly could 
have been in Trumbull County, the birth place of their oldest 
daijghter, Elizabeth. One Clark family holds to the story that 
the pair was married in Pennsylvania and rode horseback to 
Ohio on their honeymoon. 

That William was of Scotch- Irish extraction is born out by 
a statement made by another grandson, Harvy Clark, who told his 
granddaughter, Gene vie Knight Sheetz, "I am of Scotch-Irish 
descent, and I had a Pennsylvania Dutch grandmother, named 

Several descondent families agree that Mary Catherine's 
parents came from Germany. Her mother was "a fire blower to 
heal," This practice, it is thought, consisted of fanning the 
patient's body with fire, reciting scriptures the while. Many 
odd customs and superstitions were prevalent amongst the Ger- 
man settlers of Pennsylvania, and some prevail to this day. 

We know that Mary Catherine was a Baptist, and it is poss- 
ible her ppjr'ents may have belonged in Pennsylvania to a strict 
German Baptist sect, known as the Dunkards. William's religion 
is not known, but most Scotch-Irish wore Presbyterian. On the 
frontier in l807, most settlers wore without churcheso b- 
ers, being accommodated only as a circuit rider came through 
occasionally on horseback to preach, baptize, perform marriage 
ceremonies, and sometimes officiate at a funeral. It was not 
an unusual practice to marry the parents and baptize the chil- 
dren at the same time. 

With practically nothing known of the pair, it was not 
possible to link their names with Clark and Ziglar families 
found in the 1790 census for Pennsylvania, in the Pennsylvania 
archives, nor in various available church records. Mary Cath- 
erine's birth place was given as Pennsylvania in the l850 Ohio 
census. Her birth date is given as Sept. [j., 1785 in the Clark 
family Bible oxid scroll. On the scroll she is called Catharine, 
On the reverse side of one of her pictures is written "Lancas- 
ter, which is believed to be the county of her birtho 

According to one doscendent family, Mary Catherine's fath- 
er was a Hessian soldier. Hessians (Brittish mercenary sol- 
diers) were quartered in Lancaster County prior to the Revolu- 
tionary War to keep peace between the Patriots and the Ibries. 
After the war, Hessian prisoners were sent to Lancaster County, 

One of their daughters, Lydia Clark Botkln, was known to 
nave remarked that she remembered her grandfather relating his 
Revolutionary War experiences. Since there is no evidence that 
William's people lived in Ohio, and nothing is Imown of them. We 
assume this grandfather was a Ziglar. The Clarks must have mov- 
ed to Clark County sometime between Sept. 3, l8lO, the date of 

their daughter Elizabeth's birth and Sept, 2, l8l2, when their 
son George was born in Clark County, Probate Court records for 
Clark County show that William bought his iS acre farm on the 
south branch of the Mad River in Clark County from Henry Rcudi- 
sll March l8, l828. 

The Ziglars must have moved at about the same time the 
Clarks moved, ajid lived nearby, in order for Lydia to have 
heard her grandfather's stories in childhood. She was born 
November 19, l8li|.. Families located near each other in order 
to be of help in time of neod or in sickness, since doctors 
were few and far between in the efrly days of the frontiersmen, 
Mabel Clark Snyder says she remembers stories from her child- 
hood, relating that the Ziglars lived in Ohio, 

Family tr-^dition relates that William belonged to the Ma- 
sonic Order, and joined when Free Masonry was young in this 
country. The first lodge in America was establiphed In Boston 
in 1733, and by the time of the Revolutionary War there were 
about 150 lodges in Colonial America, It is believed that 
William became a member prior to his marriage in l807, as he 
did not marry until 36 years of age. At this time there were 
a number of new lodges in Lancaster County, Attempts were 
made by the writer to establish his membership in a Lancaster 
County lodge, to no avail, 

A Whig politically, William was by trade a stone and 
brick mason, a shoe-maker, and a farmer. 

His will made July 3, l850 reveals a great deal about the 
man. It requests the payment of his debts, and he also expec- 
ted others to pay their obligations, as his children were to 
share equally after two of his sons paid the estate i#20 each, 
a considerable sum. in l850 when land could be had for ;,)2,00 an 
acre. Everything was left to his wife for her use, as long as 
she lived. The l850 census showed his land was worth 1^(^23, 
His will was filed Dec, 2, l850 in Common Pleas Court, Clark 
Co\xnty, Ohio , 

After he died in l850, Mary Catherine is believed to have 
remained in Ohio until 1858^;- when the farm was sold to their 
daughter Elizabeth and her husband Sidney C, Gilbert, Mary 
Catherine then went to Illinois, living out her life on the 
farm of her son, William G. Clark near Homer, Dying July l8, 
1873 at the age of 87 years, 10 months, nnd li| days, she was 
buried in old Homer Cemetery. William was buried in Brighton 
Cemetery, Brighton, Ohio,

Of necessity the biography for Samuel B, Clark must be 
brief. The concerted efforts of the writer and her collabor- 
ator, Ethel Gibson Mills turned up only meager information. 
We cannot be sure that he was born in Ohio, but since the sis- 
ter next to him was born in Trumbull County,.' t is possible he 
may have been born there, too, 

When or where he was married is not known, as the Probate 
Court for Clark County Ohio has no record of his marriage nor 
any administration on him. He may have left the state at an 
early age. 

In 1858 he sold his l/8 share in his father's farm to Sid- 
ney C, Gilbert, and the deed was made in Philadelphia City, 
Pennsylvania August 2?, 1858 and signed by him and his wife, 
Mary M, Clark. Her maiden name is not known. 

Although George Z. , Michael, William G. , Lydia, and Mary, 
his brothers and sisters went to Illinois and established 
homes, there is nothing to substantiate a belief that Samuel 
ever came to the state. A Samuel B, Clark, a soldier enlist- 
ed in the Civil War from Vermillion County, Illinois was found. 
There was nothing in his war records to show he may have been 
a son of our subject, although his birth place was given as 
Ohio. After the war, he was released in Texas, and nothing 
more is known of him. 

The 1850 census for Philadelphia City, Fa. did not pro- 
duce a record in that year for Samuel B. Clark, so it is not 
known when he went to the state of Pennsylvania, Clark County 
Ohio Census for l850 did not show him living in that county, 
either. There were many young men by the name of Clark enlist- 
ed from Clark County and its adjoining county of Madison, but 
whether any of them were his sons we were not able to determine, 
There seems to be no tradition concerning this son of William 
and Mary Catherine,

Elizabeth Clark, the second child of T;iH.lliain and Mary Cath- 
erine Ziglar Clark, was born September 3, I81O in Trtimbull Coun- 
ty Ohio, Although it had been thought that all of the Clark 
children were born in Clark County, the death certificate for 
Elizabeth revealed her natal place to have been Tmimbull Cbunty. 
It is not known when she moved to Clark County with her family, 
but on May 29, I832 she was married to Sidney C. Gilbert, son 
of Allen and Sabra Bennett Gilbert of Albany, New York, 

lb Elizabeth and Sidney C, Gilbert were born nine children, 
Elizabeth and Alpheus dying in infancy. Austin, born at Harmony, 
Ohio remained a bachelor, dying at the age of k-Q, March I4., 1892, 

Working as a blacksmith since I8 years of age, Sidney was 
a farmer in his late years. He lived on a farm situated near 
the south line of Pleasant Township, and his mailing address 
was Vienna Cross Roads. (See William Clark's biography. ) 

Elizabeth Clark Gilbert died at Springfield, Ohio and 
was buried in Brighton Cemetery, Brighton, Ohio, Sidney C, 
Gilbert, also buried at Brighton, died in the home of his daugh- 
ter, Mary Gilbert Marsh, Pleasant Township, Clark County, Ohio 

Sidney's parents, the Allen Gilbert family came to Ohio in 
iSlij., locating in Harmony Township. Sidney, born nine miles 
south east of Albany, New York, was the second child of his 
father's second marriage to Sabra Bennett, After Allen's death, 
Sabra Bennett Gilbert married Wareham Stacey. lb thisiiunion was 
born one son. Nelson Stacey. Sidney had three brothers and a 
sister besides this half-brother: Ellas Gilbert b. Aug. 2, I808,

Allen Gilbert 

Prom an old Reader, published in I816 and belonging to Sid- 
ney C. Gilbert, we learn that Allen Gilbert was born March 26^ 
1833 in Clark County Ohio, He married Sept 29, l853 Amanda 
Lafferty, the daughter of John and Sarah Lafferty of Union Ibwn- 
ship, Chmpaign County Ohio, She was born in l8ij.7, a native of 
that state. Her father, a native of Pennsylvania was bom in 
1809, vdiile her mother was born in iSllj. in Ohio, 

The little that is knovm of Allen's first marriage is giv- 
en in his will, dated Oct 23, 1897 in which he gives the names 
of his five children: Mary Gilbert Faulkner of Kansas City, Miss- 
ouri, William Gilbert of Springfield, Ohio, Ellen Gilbert Brown 
of Marys ville, Ohio, Lydia A, Gilbert Brown of Now Ebver, Ohio 
and Albert Gilbert of Lenapah, Indian Territory. 

It is not known when Amanda Lafferty Gilbert died, but it 
was sometime between the birth of her youngest son, Albert, 
born in I866 and Allen's second marriage in I869, According to 
his daughter-in-law, Nancy Martin Gilbert, Allen gave his child- 
ren into the keeping of their grandparents to raise, and he 
left for Indian Territory. Maether maternal or paternal grand- 
parents is not known. 

Ihor e is little information concerning those children, 
Mary Gilbert Faulkner died, and was buried in Co ffeyvillc, Kan- 
sas. She had one daughter, Odessa Faulkner Pclton, William is 
believed to have remained a bachelor, Albert married Bell 
Johnson in Coffeyville December l5, I89I, had three children, 
and moved to Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, whore two more children 
were born. Nothing has been heard from this family in late 

On October 3, 1869 in Indian Territory, Allen married 
Kiamitia Comel West of Cherokee descent. It is not known when 
or where she was born. Her ancestors come over the "Trail of 
Tears," when the United States government forced the removal of 
Cherokee Indians, after the treaty of l835, from their home- 
lands in the southeastern part of the continent, to what was 
then known as Indian Territory, now the state of Oklahoma, 
Thousands perished of hardships and illnesses, either in stock- 
ades before the removal began or on the way. This enforced 
march was alluded to by all Indians of the five civilized tribes 
as the Trail of Tears, By his marriage to Kiamitia, Allen bo- 
came a citizen of the Cherokee Nation by lawful adoption. He 
riE ntions this in his will, 

lb this union were born a son and two daughters, George, 
Fhjthe, and Kiamitia Comel, Upon the death of his wife, ho 
married Josephine Rider, also of Cherokee descent, and they had 
one son, Dennis B, Gilbert, 

According to Nancy Gilbert, "Grandfather Gilbert was avery 
intelligent man. No bad habits — no drinking, gambling, smok- 
ing, or anything like that--and his wd rd was as good as gold 
Itself, No foolishness about him. We all loved him," 

He left an estate consisting of 2500 acres of land, locat-

George Gilbert 

George Gilbert was born in Springfield, Ohio March 1, 

l8l|6. At the age of 21 in l867 he moved to the state of Kansas, 

locating near Hartford, where he lived until his death April 
20, 1932. 

Jan 8, l87i; he married Bluma Price, a daughter of George 
W. and Bluma Bavis Price, Settling on a farm east of Hartford, 
the couple raised a family of eight children. He survived his 
wife, who was- born Nov 23, l85l in New Castle, Indiana, After 
her death May 1^, 1923 George Gilbert made his home with a 
daughter, Mrs Elizabeth Gilbert Rich. (Mrs Peter F. Rich) 

Mrs Rich says of him, "l^ Father was a man of thrifty 
habits, honest and upright. He lived by the Golden Rule, al- 
ways doing to others, as he would be done by. He was a farmer, 
and loved being out of doors and was the happiest when vrorking 
on his farm, hunting or fishing, or just enjoying strolls 
through the woods or beside Kansas streams. He had a strong 
constitution, which gave him 8? years of good health. We bur- 
ied him beside my mother in Hartford Cemetery,"

George Ziglar Clark, the third child and second son of 
William Clark and Mary Catherine Ziglar was born September 
2, 1812 Harmony, Clark County, Ohio, It is believed by the 
writer, that George may have been named for his grandfather 
Ziglar, lAisubstantiated records in her possession seem to 
indicate that his grandfather's name may have been George. 

About 1838, he was married to Mary Ann, a native of Ken- 
tucky, Her maiden name is not known. Coming to Illinois from 
Ohio sometime before iQ^Z (see V/illiam G, Clark biography) the 
family located on a farm near Homer, They vK;re the parents of 
five children, two girls and three boys, the youngest, George, 
bom January 7, l850 lived only a week. 

The following year on July 28th, his wife, Mary Ann, died, 
leaving him to raise the children whose ages ranged S, 7, 9, 
and 12, The mother was buried in Patterson Cemetery, St Joseph,

an infant, having been bom in Clark County Ohio February 7, 

His wife Elizabeth's maiden name is not known, and no re- 
cord was found for their marriage. Their child, William, was 
bom about March 23, l862, as his grave stone says he died 
April 20th, 28 days old, Elizabeth died shortly after this 
child's birth at the age of l5 years, 10 months. This infor- 
mation v/as obtained from her grave stoK in Patterson Cemetery,

1863 in Champi ign County, Illinois by T, M, Hess M. G. Th e 
couple went to Kansas to live in l865.

reamer, as he related his travels to California and back, then 
out again to Texas, California, Oregon, and to the state of 
V/ashington, He returned to the state of Kansas in l873. 

According to family tradition William's sister, Nancy Jane 


Clark, went to Coldwater, Kansas to keep house for him. It is 
believed this nay have been after the death of his wife, though 
it is not known when she died or vAiere she is buried, Nancy 
Jane did go to Coldwater in 188?, marrying in I89I. Nothing 
raore is known of \^5.11iam, but it is thought, by some family 
members, that he may have gone to Oklahoma, To date no trace 
of him has been found,

pioneer days, and succeeded in making a home for themselves on 
the prairies of south western Kansas, Nancy Jane was a mem- 
ber of the Christian Church for over ZS years. Obituaries for

Illimis, Left fatherless, at the a^^c of [i., Martin had tho 
fatherly guidance in his early years of his Uncle, V/illiam G, 
Clark, who lived on an adjoining farm. 

At tho ago of II4. he took over tho tasks of plovring and 
other farm chores for his vridowed mother. According to his 
granddaughter, Prodda Carpenter Barnes, he loved farming. She 
states his pastimes consisted in going to Ogdcn or St Joseph 
on Saturdays and church on Siondays, and he enjoyed fishing, log 
Skating, and horseback riding. 

The talK 6 ft 2") dark haired young man with blue oyes, 
begcjn courting Lorctta Jane Swcaringen of St Joseph, On a 
trip to town by horseback to sco Lorctta, ho was dressed in 
his finest clothes, and was accompanied by his pet dog, T!hc 
dog, being of an adventurous spirit, routed out an indignant 
skunk, Noodlcss to say, this was one date with his lady love, 
Martin did not keep. Horse, Dog and Martin were made ill by 
the encounter, and Martin and his pet spent the following woek| 
eating and sleeping outside the house. 

He won the favor of Lorctta Jane Svjoaringcn, and they were 
married March 10, I878. Living in St Joseph, Illinois, he 
started a cigar store. Their first three children wcru born 
in St, Joseph, 

The family moved to Cuba, Pulton County, Illinois to op- 
erate a small hotel and bakery. Their fourth child was born 
in Cuba, 

Business was prosperous until an epidemic of smallpox 
broke out in the community, and during the outbreak, the 
panic of the 90 's began, Martin extended credit until finally 
ho went broke. 

Returning to Homer, Illinois, he started an ice cream and 
confectionary store, which included a bake shop and cigar 
stand. He was elected to the to\-m council, which office ho 
held for two terms. Selling his business about- 1912, ho re-

ion for it's use was granted to Mr Ross Mills of Urbana by 
fhe News-Gazette of Champi ign- Urbana, Illinois,

hard to read. The paragraph viiich is difficult to decipher 
reads, "Longevity seemed to be a characteristic of MrsBotkin's 
immediate relatives, A brother William Clark died at the 
age of 88, He wna tho youngest of the family, Mrs Botkin's 
mother lived to be 88 years old,"

Family records obtained by 
Ethel Gibson Mills. 






Michael Clark was born in Clark County Ohio, April 30, 
1817, the fourth child of ^.lailiam and Mary Catherine Ziglar 
Clark, On August 5> l8i|.0 he was united in marriage with 
Ellen J, McLaughlin Martin, 

Their first child, Samuel A, Clark, was born in Spring- 
field, Ohio, Whether the next three children were born in 
Clark County is unknown, but a fifth child, Michael J, Clark 
was born at Colvimbus, Ohio, Franklin County, Ohio Feb, 6,l85i|-. 

Sometime between this date and September 10, 1856 the 
family migrated to Illinois, for their next child, Charles, 
was bom on this date at Mt, Auburn in Christian County, A 
daughter Carrie died in infancy at Decatur, and was buried at 
Mt, Auburn, 

The family settled in Macon Cbunty at Decrtur, where they 
were living when Michael and two of his sons enlisted for 
Civil War Service, 

The first to enlist was Samuel A. who joined Company C 
25th Illinois Infantry June 1, I86I at the age of 20, and was 
mustered in August I4., I86I, 

According to family tradition, the next in the family to 
be fired with patriotism was Hugh, who enlisted as a drummer 
boy at the age of l5. Actually he was only lij. years, 8 months, 
3 days old on July 22, l862 \h.en he enlisted in Company K 
116th Illinois Infantry, We have nothing but records by which 
to judge, but we wonder, if because of Hugh's extreme youth, 
his father joined up to keep an eye on his boy, for Michael 
enlisted at the ago of l^S in the same company, ll6th Illinois 
Infantry, August 28, l862, just nine days before Hugh was 
mustered in, Hugh was the only one of the three to servo un- 
til the end of the war. He died, unmarried, Jiine 19, l873» 

Michael was wounded and died of gangrene at Memphis, Tenn. 
Jan 31, 1863, 

Mrs Clark later married a Mr. Hogan, Jhe died Jan 7, 
1887, and wns buried in Calvary Cemetery, Decatur, Illinoos.

Samuel A, Clark 

Samuel A. Clark born Oct, 181^.0 in Springfield, Ohio was 
the oldest child of Michael and Ellen J. Martin Clark. Mov- 
ing with his family, as a lad of l5, to Illinois about l855, 
he grew up in the Mt Auburn - Decatur vicinity. 

Enlisting at Ifomer, Illinois Juno 1, l86l Samuel saw Civil 
War service with Corr^jany C, 25th Illinois Infantry. His regi- 
ment was made up of volunteers from Kankakee, Iroquois, Fbrd, 
Vezrmillion, Douglas, Coles, Champaign and Edgar counties; and 
fought in battles of Foa Ridge, Arkansas, Stone River, Tenn,, 
Seige of Corinth, Miss., Kenesaw Mt,, Georgia, Seige of Atlanta, 
Georgia, and many other skirmishes. 

Since he was not mustered out until September 5, l86i4., we 
assume he was home on leave vdien he married Miss Serena Eaton 
at Sidney, Illinois Januo? y 10, l86i|. 

The couple had 13 chil:lren, 5 of which died in infancy or 
early childhood, Mr and Mrs Clark both died in Cblorado Springs 
Colorado, and are buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery at Sidney, 111,

Wedding Picture

Helon Clark Long 




In l8i|0 V/llllam G, Clark left his parental home in the 
hills of Clark County, Ohio for the wilderness of the prairio 
state of Illinois, Here he vrorked for a year at odd jobs, somo 
of which may have included shoemaking and stone-masonry, trades 
he had learned from his father. It is thought during this year 
he may have acquired a tract of land in Homer Ibvmship and 
built the log cabin which was to house a large family for many 

In iBip., he returned to Ohio to marry his sweetheart, iful- 
let Amanda Robinson, who was the daughter of Leonard and Mary A. 
Fblcy Robinson, both natives of Virginia, Juliet was bom 
November l\., l822 in Virginia, The wedding took place July 8, 
l8ijJL, and family tradition reveals it was an elopement, \iith 
William's sister, Mary and her friend, John Laird, acting as 
witnesses. They wore rurried at Brighton, Clark County, by 
Rev, Cornelius Arbogast, 

According to family tradition he and his bride set out 
immediately for Illinois, but a diary left by his oldest son, 
Walter relates ''When married they went to themselves, having 
nothing to go on or do with. They remained there (Ohio) for a 
few years. Then with my Uncle George came to Illinois," 

Examination of facts reveals that they very likely did re- 
main in Ohio, as Walter contended, for the Illinois census for 
1850 gives Ohio as the birth of their oldest daughtcif. Francos, 
who was born NDVcmber ij., I8/4.2, which probably places William's 
next trip to Illinois sometime in the spring or early summer 
of I8I1.3. 

Since Walter claims Williojn and his brother, George wont 
to Illinois together, it is very possible they wont together 
in l8[|.0, for George's second son, John v/as born in l8[|2 in 
Illinois, The l850 census for Illinois gives his age as 8, 

It hardly seems probable that both couples would set out 
after the birth of Frances in November of l6l\2. This they would 
have had to have done in order for John to be born in Illinois 
in 18[|2, It is the writer's opinion that George and Mary Ann 
and their small son, William already were in Illinois, as be- 
fore suggested. 

The exact date of John's birth has never been found, al- 
though much research was done. If a birth certificate for 

(William Clark's biography based upon family tradition, family 
Bible records, Illinois I85O Census records, Walter Clark's 
diary, owned by his daughter Mabel Clark Snyder, ) 


John is ever found, it may prove the theory. Others may put 
their ovm construction upon the facts here given. 

Again quoting from Walter's diary^ "All the possessions 
they had were a little dandy wagon and two ponies worth >30,00 
apiece, and William owed for one of them; and an old cowhide 
trunk held their clothing for the family, and their clothing 
was in proportion," 

Arriving at their journey's end, we assume William and 
Juliet took up residence in the small cabin he had built in 
l8ij.O for his bride, George built on land adjacent to that of 

Walter continues with the hardships of his parents. "They 
began their life in a new country without help, only as they 
dug it out of the ground. Sickness, poverty, and hardships of 
all kinds would have driven them from the state back to Ohio, 
but he was unable to get away, so he kept struggling for better, 
until gradually he gained a little. For about l5 years, sick- 
ness and loss of property kept him in straightened conditions 
financially. There were bom unto my father 11 children, five 
boys and sijc girls." Two of these children. Pulton and Phidelia 
died in infancy, and are buried in Old Hbraer Cemetery, Homer, 

•itTQo^'^^ '^^^^ census record shows V/illiam's land holdings at 
Jlb25, a considerable svm. by the standards of that day. Walter 
throws a little more light on the struggle the couple had in 
raising a large brood of children, including two grandchildren, 
and assisting vath the raising of two nephex,fs. Says Walter, 

Mover remember of going to Sunday School until l6 or l8 years 
of age. At that time a Methodist class was formed. 1^ mother 
or father was neither of them religious. Only believed in do- 
ing right by all to >diom they had to do by. By years '58 to '60 
we had made considerably," 

It is apparent that prosperity eventually was "dug out of 
the ground," for William gave each of his nine children $l600 
in land. His daughter, Isabel, related that her father built a 
new two-story house when she was about nine years old. (1869) 
He built well, for it is still standing in 196l\., The log cabin 
long had been outgrown for it housed 11 children, his wife, him- 
self and his mother, who came to live with him after the death 
of his father in l850. He was a man of limited education, but 
he showed a willing perseverance that never failed through his 
years of adversity, 

I^on retiring from the farm, William G. went to St Joseph, 
Illinois to live. After the death of his wife, in I89I4., he 
married Mrs. R. H. Mathews in l897. Upon her death, the follow- 
ing year, he married Lucinda Love, who died Oct 13, I898. 

That he was a kindly man is proven by his action in raising 
four children not his own. We sec him at one time returning 
to Ohio to bring his sister-in-law, who vfas ill. She made the 


trip on a feather bod in tho rear of a apring-wagon, A Repub- 
lican politically, ho was a man who took an intoroat in coininun- 
ity ontcrprisos. Ho lived by the Goldon Rule, and in tho words 
of his son, "doing right by all they had to do by," Ho passod 
away May 9, 1907, bringing to a dloso a long and useful lifo in 
the service of others,

Prances Clark 

Frances Clark, first child of William G. Clark and Juliet Amanda 
Robinson Clark came to Illinois from Ohio as an infant, when her 
parents moved to the state in l8[|2 (or l8ij.3), and is the only 
one of thd. r chiMren to bo born in tho state of Ohio, She was 
eight years old in l850, according to the census for that year, 
and it verifies the place of her birth. 

On March 27, l862, at the age of 20, she married John M, Swcar- 
ingen, son of John W. and Zilpha Swoaringen. Of five children 
born to this union only three have been recorded. Dying at her 
home in St. Joseph, 111. she was buried in Patterson Cemetery, 
where her husband also is interred,

He thinks they're the best, 
"I" is for Indiana and Indianapolis 

A big tovm, 
i^Jhich is noted for Hoosiers 

VJhe raver they are found. '' --«- 

Thus did Harvy Clark make the news back in December lQ7l\. 
when %he above poem was written as part of an alphabetical 
rhyme by Miss Emma Hodges, and was read at the exhibition giv- 
en by the yoiong people at the California School House (District 
17) at Lebo Creek, Kansas, 

Having moved to Kansas the same year the poem was written, 
Harvy married a Hoosier, one of the Price Girls, Margaret Eliza 
on January 1, l877. Settling on a farm at Lebo Creek, Harvy 
engaged in the stock business and dealt in lands with his bro- 
ther, Thornton, Serving his community as Justice of the Peace, 
he earned the nick-name of "Judge," He also was a member of 
the school board in this place. Three daughters were born in 
Lebo Creek, his son, Paul, being born in Hartford, Kans, 

Ibving to Hartford in I89O, he worked in a cooperative 
store with his brother, V/alter, I'Jhen the store was sold in 
1891 to L, C, Kiight, Harvy and his family returned to Homer, 
Illinois, his former home. Here he lived for av/hile on his 
father's farm, later moving to the Saunder's farm in Ogden 
Ibwnship, Still later, the family moved to Champaign, where 
his davighter, Grace attended the University of Illinois, spec- 
ializing in music. All of his children were musically talent- 

In 1898, the family returned to Kansas, After sojourns 
in Kansas City and Emporia, Kansas, the family settled in lola, 
Kansas, where Harvy was einployed in a cement plant. In I906, 
his wife and two daughters, lA^nifred and /jny, son Paul and 
granddaughter, Genevie left for Orange, California by way of 
Berkeley where the family visited Lide's sister, Nellie Rubart, 
Experiencing the I906 San Francisco earthquake, Lide decided 
Orange County a safer place for her family, Harvy followed a 
year later. 

Their daughter, Grace, died in I9O/4., leaving infant twin 
daughters, one of which died when six months old, Harvy and 
Lide raised the other twin, Genevie Knight, to young ^-jomanhood. 

During his youth, Harvy received an education commensurate 
with the times, learning to read, write, and "figure," He 
worked as a bookkeeper and taught bookkeeping v:hen he lived in 
Kansas, After moving to California, he engaged as a supervis- 
or in the Citrus fruit industry, 


A quiet and kindly m n, Harvy liked to stories of 
his childhood in Illinois, and his favorite was the ono about 
seeing Abraham Lincoln, He was about seven years old when Mr, 
Lincoln came down the road in front of the Clark's log cabin. It 
is thought Mr Lincoln may have boon campaigning amongst the Ill- 
inois farmers, A short distance from the Clark farm, in i860, 
an inn was then standing. Here Abe Lincoln stayed. 

At the time of Lido's death December 16, 1937, Harvy remark- 
ed that ho and Lide had been separated only eight years since ho 
met her when she was 12 years old. The Price family moved to Kan- 
sas from Homer, Illinois in l866, and Harvy followed eight years 
later. They wore married nearly 6l years, Harvy followed his 
wife in death Christmas day 1938,

Burlington Republican, published in Burlington, Kansas, and is

of the William G. Clarks, Ho was the only child of this fami- 
ly to attend the University of Illinois, Completing his edu- 
cation at 18, Ihornton and his brother Harvy and a sister, 
Louisa, went to Kansas, where the brothers were in stock and 
land business together. 

Returning to Illinois, Thornton married January 7, l877 
the daughter of John F, and Margaret Springer Correy in I4ay- 
view. They wero the parents of Vincent, who died Jione II4.;, 
1879, 3-nd a second son, Clinton Oliver, 

Thornton farmed for two years one and a half miles East of 
St Joseph in Champaign County, then moved to Mayview, v;hero he 
farmed for several years. At about this time he became an ear- 
nest Sunday School vjorkor and united with the Methodist church. 
Ordained to preach in I878, he became pastor to many churches 
in Illinois and south western Oklahoma until his retirement in 

Prom his brother Walter's diary we learn, "In iSSij. in 
February, I went to Illinois (from Kansas) to help Thornton 
when he was at Mayview, x^fith his preaching, I felt the Lord 
was with me, and answered my prayers, I preached to my old 
friends and pointed to the Lamb of God, that takcth nway the 
sins of the world^ as best I couldo They made me up some mon- 
ey, with which I am buying a watch, vhich I will keep as a 
keepsake," The watch, which is wound vxith a key is in the poss- 
ession of his grandson, Clark Lester Snyder of Los Altos, Calif, 

Thornton was licensed to preach June 6, 1885. In Septem- 
ber 1886 he joined the Illinois Conference of Urbana, Illinois,

According to his grcijnddaughtor, Jane Clark Brown, "He was 
an effective witness to his faith in whatever purs-;lt he on- 
gaged: farming, politics, or writing," Ho waa a Republican 
State Legislator In Oklahoma, and at 75 years of age was elec- 
ted I'ayor of Anna, Illinois, His son, Clinton Oliver Clark,

Louisa Clark 

Louisa Clark, or Lide as she was known familiarly by her 
family and friends, went to Kansas as a young girl and kept 
house for her two brothers, Harvy and Thornton. Both brothers, 
marrying in January l877, left Louisa free to marry, and on 
March k of that year, she married Christopher Coble in Cham- 
paign County, Illinois. He was the son of Henry and Mary 
Acors Coble. 

Chris, as her husband was called, was born in Lawrence, 
Kansas in 1851, and it is not known when his family ncved to 
the Lebo area; but according to his birth date, the Cobles 
were ea' ly comers to the state of Kansas, 

We believe "Sister Cbble," to whom Walter Clark referred 
in his diary, must have been Chris's mother, for Mabel Clark 
Snyder says, "I think the Coble family was already in Kansas 
when my father ard mother arrived (1868) for it was "Sister 
Coble" who played a big part in Pa becoming a Christian, as he 
says in his diary," 

At Lebo Creek, the Cobles made their home on a farm, a 
gift of Lide's father. Two of their da\;ghters were born two 
miles north of Strawn, Kansas. Only the youngest, Lola, was 
born at Lebo, 

Chris who was a hunter and fisherman died Feb 17, 1912, 
leaving Lide to run the farm alone. It was not unusual to 
see her manning the plow or tending the farm animals. However, 
hard work did not cut her life short, as she lived to be 97 
yea- s, 6 months and k days old. Retiring from the farm in 
19/4-7, she spent her last years with her daughter, Lola in Em- 
poria, Kansas, until her death in 1956. She is buried near 
Lebo Creek, Kansas in Lebo Creek Cemetery. 

^^ In a tribute paid to her mother, Lola Coble Davis said. 

Mother was the most vjondorful mother that could have been 
given to me, always working hard, pleasant and lovable in her 
home, and good to everyone. She was not a church member, but 
was a Christian woman. "

John Pulton Clark, the yoiongest son of William and Mary 
Catherine Ziglar Clark was born in Clark County, Ohio, on 
May L|., 182^, At the age of 20, he married November 13, 1814.5 
Rebecca Blrely, a native of Boonsboro, MaiTl^rid, Her parents 
were Lewis and Sarah Birely. 

To this union were born three children, Lewis Edward 
Clark, William H, Clark, who died in infancy, and Mary Cather- 
ine Clark, The marriage was short lived, as John died Dec, 8, 
1850, three months after the death of his father. 

In his father's will, each of John's biHDthers and sisters 
were to share equally in their father's estate after the death 
of their mother, but John was the only one singled out for a 
personal bequest, "I devise and bequeath to my son John and 
his heirs, the rifle gun vrhich I now own, with all the things 
necessarily thereunto belonging," Old English and American 
wills often mentioned personal possessions. In days when 
money was scarce, personal property represented money, and a 
gun or a sword was considered valuable, 

John wns buried at Brighton, Ohio, His vddov/ remarried 
Charles Gar^^rclod, and the fomily moved to a farm one mile north 
of Mansfield, Illinois, Rebecca Birely Clark Garvrood died 
Oct 9, 1916 at Mahomet, Illinois and was buried in Riverside 
Cemetery, Mahomet, 

NOTE: Vfe are told by genealogists that a family name, used as 
a given name often is the clue to a grandmother's maiden name. 
While there is no proof, it is reasonable to believe that 
Pulton may have been the maiden name of V/illiam Clark's mother, 
A number of descendents boar the m me Pulton, Mary Catherine 
came from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania v;horc Robert Pulton 
American engineer, inventor and painter) was bom. Much re- 
search was done, but no fcjnily connections could be ascertain- 
ed, Robert Pulton's mother moved to Washington Coiinty, Penn- 
sylvania, where many Clarks had settled. With so little in- 
formation to go on, no relationship could be claimed. Some 
future Clark genealogist may discover the key which will un- 
lock the secret to William and Mary Catherine's true parentage.

Julia Ann Clark, youngest of the V/illiam Clark family, 
was born 19th cf July,l828 in Clark Coxonty, Ohio, The last 
of nine children to marry, she remainod with her mother, Mary 
Catherine, after her father's death in l850. 

It was stated in William's biography that Mary Catherine 
probably remained in Ohio until the farm was sold in l858. 
Further research seems to indicate the farm vms sold at a much 
earlier date, as Julia Ann conveyed to Sidney C, Gilbert her 
undivided one-ninth share in her father's farm April 6, l856. 
It is very possible Mary Catherine remained in Ohio, only xintil 
Julia married in l852. 

On February 20, l852 she married in Brighton, Ohio Levds 
Heffley, the third son cf Charles and Elizabeth Wilson Heffley. 
Lewis had much the same parental background as Julia Ann. Her 
father was Scotch-Irish and her mother German, 

Lewis's maternal grandparents were of the same Irish- 
German extraction, his grandfather Wilson being an Irishman 
who married a German wife, Lewis's mother, Elizabeth Wilson 
Heffley, a native of Kentucky, was one of 13 children. She 
m rried in iSlij. Charles Heffley of Greene County, Ohio. Born 
in 1789 in Lancaster, Fennsylvania, Charles Heffley died in 
August 1861)., The couple raised a family of eight children, in- 
cluding a set of tv/in girls, Catherine and Sarah, 

Lewis and Julia Ann Clar- k Heffley had four children, Ed- 
ward C, Charles, Maria Jane (Jennie), and William. There 
are no records available for Cha rles and William, 

Dying September 28, I889 Lewis Heffley was followed in 
death by Julia Ann August 22, 1907. Both died in South Vienna, 
Ohio, and were burled at Summerford, Mar^ilson County, Ohio.
