   Checking records in Leyden involves several jurisdictions. Leyden originally was in Bernardston, but it was set off as the town of Leyden in 1784. At that time it was in Hampshire County, Mass. In 1811, however, Franklin County, was formed from Hampshire County, with Leyden winding up in Franklin County.

  Elisha may have named three of his daughters after three sisters: Anna,
Martha and Hannah.

  Bernardston Records: Elisha Clarke and Peleg Brown appeared on the Bernardston town rate in 1781--each one poll. And each living in the area that later became Leyden.
  History of Leyden: Elisha Clark (sic) lived on a farm near Peleg Brown, and the 1790 census lists Elisha Clark, with two males under 16 and four females.
  Families: Elisha Clarke, born 28 Jan. 1750-1751; living in Leyden, MA, in 1806. Wife only listed as Mary ________.

  Franklin Probate: Elisha's will was dated 7 Jan. 1831 and recorded 25 Aug. 1835. He named as beneficiaries his wife Mary, his son Elijah Clarke and Elijah's son Alva. He said he already had provided for his son Elisha, deceased, and his daughters, Lucy Page; Martha Brown, deceased [wife of Eleazer Brown III]; Anna Brown [wife of Peleg Brown Jr., the older brother of Eleazer]; and Hannah Walworth. Elijah was named administrator but only was given "his support out of the use of my estate during his natural life." Grandson Alva Clarke was given "all the rest and residue of my estate, real and personal." Elijah died intestate in 1832, before his father, but Elisha did not make another will.

  Perhaps he was not competent to do so. He was 82 years old at the time, and in 1825 a guardian had been appointed by the court to oversee his affairs. In a 10 May 1825 order, a probate judge declared "that the said Elisha does by excessive drinking so spend, waste and lessen his estate as thereby to expose himself and family to want and suffering circumstances, and does also endanger the said town of Leyden to a charge and expense for his and their maintenance and support." Evidently the town fathers were afraid they would wind up with a welfare case to handle. George Mowry was appointed guardian. A Tabor Babcock had opposed the guardianship.
  At this time, 1825,  Elisha's property was inventoried at $1,701.17, $1,417 of that being real estate. Seven years later, 24 Nov. 1832 Elisha asked the court to end the guardianship, saying he had been "much abused and grieved by George Mowry." Six Leyden residents also advocated that the guardian should be removed. Elisha's request probably was precipitated by Mowry's 28 Aug. 1832 petition "to sell land to pay debts of the said spendthrift." On 12 Feb. 1833 the probate judge approved the sale of 14 acres of land. Evidently the guardianship was never lifted.
  An inventory of Elisha's property after his death was difficult to figure
out. Apparently his real estate and personal property totaled $1,137.16.
There was $519 in debts, but were these subsequently substracted from the above total? Also, another figure put his personal property at $1,302.49. Some property also was sold at auction. At any rate, grandson Alva Clarke apparently inherited all of Elisha's property since his grandmother Mary died before her husband Elisha.

Elisha married Mary. Mary was born about 1750. She died 29 Jul 1832 in Leyden, Franklin Co., Massachusetts.

maiden name. She thinks she was from Connecticut, not Westerly.
