They were married in Bourbon County, Kansas by her brother-in-law, John Gaither, who was a Justice of the Peace. Martha was born in August 1842 in Missouri. They had 14 children together, three of whom died at a very young age:

Great- grandfather James fought in the Civil War on the Confederate side. According to his daughter, Eliza (Clark) Frank, he fought in the Battle of Wilson's Creek. That battle was the first major battle west of the Mississippi, and was also known as the "Bull Run of the West."

James died on 10 May 1907 at the age of 69. His obituary was written in the Taney County Republican:

"James Clark departed this life on Friday, and was buried at Helphrey on Sunday the 12th instant. A large number of relatives and friends were present. The casket was covered with a mass of beautiful flowers. Six old veterans of the Union army were the pallbearers who lovingly bore this old confederate to his last resting place, where he sleeps under the trees, waiting for the great reveille. There was no better soldier, citizen or neighbor, nor one more kind-hearted, honest, industrious or more loved and mourned than Mr. Clark"
