Clark, Amasa Lyman, Bishop of Farmington (South Davis Stake), Davis county, Utah, was born June 6, 1865, at Farmington, the son of Ezra T. Clark and Mary Stevenson. He was baptized by Oliver Lee Robinson when eight years of age; ordained a Deacon when a boy; ordained an Elder in 1885 by Orrin P. Randall and a Seventy soon afterwards by Seymour B. Young. In 1887-1889 he filled a mission to the Southern States, laboring principally in North and South Carolina and at the mission office at Chattanooga. At home he has been a diligent Sunday School worker. For several years he acted as secretary and treasurer of the Sunday school board and from 1901 to 1915 he filled the position of Stake superintendent of Sunday Schools. He was ordained a Bishop in 1915 and set apart to preside over the Farmington Ward, which position he still holds. In secular affairs Bro. Clark has been successful and has been entrusted with a number of positions of responsibility and trust within the gift of his fellow-citizens. Thus he served two years as county treasurer and eighteen years as city treasurer of the city of Farmington. From 1908 to 1911 he acted as mayor of Farmington. In 1885 (Dec. 16th) he married Alice C. Steed, daughter of Thomas Steed and Laura Read, who was born June 10, 1867, at Farmington. After giving birth to five children this wife died Aug. 2, 1895. Bro. Clark married Susan Duncan March 31, 1897; she was the daughter of John Duncan and Martha Lewis and was born at Bountiful, Davis county, Utah, Nov. 3, 1873; she also has borne her husband five children. Bro. Clark's principal avocation is that of a farmer and banker. Since 1892 he has been cashier of the Davis County Bank.
