P. Clark was born in April of 1839 and was the
daughter of George W. Clark and Maria (Southard)
and sister of at least Caroline, Hannah, and
Elizabeth. The family was enumerated in the 1850 census living at Cortlandt
in Westchester Co., New York where her father was
maternal grandparents were Thomas and Hannah
(Jones) who had lived in Fishkill where Maria had
been born on 17 May 1808. The family remained
there until Maria was about twenty, at which time
they went to New York City where Charlotte's
parents were married on 15 May 1828.
In about 1843 the
family moved to Peekskill and resided for many
years in house which adjoined the
Southard-Robertson foundry buildings on the east.
The father died in 1860, at which time Maria was
listed as head of household. In about 1877 they
built a home at 206 Nelson Avenue, which at the
time was about the only house in the
neighborhood. Here it seems they would live the
remainder of their lives. Although the date of
Charlotte's death is not known, she was living at
the time her older sister Hannah died in 1917.
and their mother Maria are listed in 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910 census records residing in
the same household.
