Holdridge and Elizabeth Ann Morlan Clark married on May 22, 1853 in Salem, Columbiana Co., Ohio.

Holdridge Clark and Elizabeth Ann Morlan had 12 children. Two children are unknown to me. One child died approx. Feb. 5, 1878 as an infant. This information has been taken from a local undertaker records.

From Rensselaer Indiana Evening Republican newspaper, Friday, Mary 24, 1912:

SUDDEN DEATH OF CIVIL WAR VETERAN FROM HEART FAILURE

While mowing his lawn in the east part of town about 8 o'clock this morning, Holdridge Clark was stricken with heart failure and died a few minutes later. Mr. Clark seemed to be in his usual health this morning and started to mow the lawn at his home. It seems that he had walked only a few feet with the mower when he fell over unconscious. His granddaughter, who was at the house at the time, discovered him as he fell. She called for help and Nelson Randle, who lives next door, was the first to respond. He propped Mr. Clark's head up with pillows, as it was dangerous to attempt to move him, and went to call for a doctor. When he returned about 2 minutes later, Mr. Clark had just gasped his last.

Mr. Clark has been more or less of an invalid for several years, though he was never confined to his bed. On account of his condition, doctors had always advised him against over exertion. He was born in Columbiana county, O., over 79 years ago and moved to this county before the Civil War broke out. He was a soldier in the Civil War, belonging to the 151st Indiana Regiment. At the close of the war he moved to Barkley township, where he lived up till thirty-eight years ago, since which time he has resided in Rensselaer.

He is survived by a wife, six daughters, Mrs. Theo. (Mary)Warne, of Parr; Mrs. Tom (Martha) Grant and Mrs. Geo. Albert (Effie) Daugherty, of Rensselaer; Mrs. Chas. E.(Hattie) Nowels and Mrs. George (Jessie) Smith, both of Longmont, Colorado and one son, Alvin Clark, of Lee; also three sisters, Mrs. Mary Porter, of Coats, Kansas; Mrs. Amzie Meadows, of Watseka, Illinois, and Mrs. Emeline Switzer, of Jasper County, and one brother, E(zra) L. Clark, of Rensselaer.

Mrs. George Smith and Mrs. C. E. Nowels will arrive here from Longmont, Col., Sunday to attend the funeral. The funeral will be held Sunday at 2 o'clock at the house. Burial in Weston cemetery.
