Charles Rathbone Stark (1848-1931)



This publication is dedicated to the memory of Charles Rathbone Stark, whose 1927 publication entitled “The Aaron Stark Family, Seven Generations”, was the beginning of this journey into the past. His compilation of the descendants of Aaron Stark — an ambitious undertaking for 1927 — was instrumental to my research and contributed to much of the material to be presented. I further dedicate these pages to past and present Stark family researchers who contributed to this publication. May future Stark family researchers improve on these pages — already obsolete as they are being written — producing research of their own which will surpass these humble efforts to preserve the history of Aaron Stark and his descendants.
