Battey Publishing Co., Chicago.page 615- Stewart Pct. - James M. CLARK was born July 30, 1840, on the place where he now resides. His father, William B. CLARK, is a native of Pendleton Distrct, S.C., where he was born in 1797, and removed with his parents to Christian County, Ky., in 1803, where he is still living, remarkably well preserved for one of his advanced age. He is the son of Jonathan Clark, who was born in Virginia in 1759, entered the army as Captain at the beginning of the Revolutionary war, and was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of the Eighth Virginia Regiment, having served through the entire struggle. He was a surveyor by profession, and after serving many years as High Sheriff and Magistrate in Christian County, Ky., died in 1851. He was the son of Bollin Clark, an Englishman. Jonathan married Jane, daughter of John Rogers, of South Carolina, and their children were: John R., Bollin, Simeon B., William B., Sally (wife of Hawkins Goode) and Phanuel. William B. married Nancy, daughter of William Thompson, of Christian County, Ky., and to them were born: Mary J. (Atkinson), Elizabeth A. (Gray) and our subject, who was married February 22, 1865, to Miss Mildred A., daughter of Isham G. Bobbitt, of this county, and from this union sprang: Mollie H., Joseph P., John H., George M., Carrie and Maggie. Subject served his county as a soldier in Company A, Third Kentucky Cavalry, for more than three years in the late war, and was honorably discharged; he is now engaged in farming, at which he is successful; he is an honored member and Master of the Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons, and also a member in good standing of the Knights of Honor. In religion he is a Universalist, and in politics Independent.
