Birth: 1718

From his gravestone (new metal plaque placed over worn older stone):

REV. JOHN CLARK
1718-1797
First pastor of Bethel and Lebanon
Presbyterian Churches
1783-1794

Here lies the body of the Rev. John Clark who departed this life July the 13th, A. D. 1797 in the 79th year of his age.

"In yonder church I spent my breath and now lie slumbering in my death:
These lips shall rise and then declare amen to truths they published there."

During the Whiskey Insurrection, Rev. John Clark met with the angry farmers at Fort Couch on July 17, 1794, in an effort to prevent an attack at Bower Hill, on the home of Gen. John Neville, federal tax collector.
