Birth: Dec. 16, 1866
Death: Jan. 28, 1962

Clarks-Hill — Wilson G. Clark, 95, son of the founder of the town of Clark’s Hill, died in Bowles nursing home here at 9 a.m. Sunday. In failing health some time, he was a patient in the nursing home only a day. Born at Clark’s Hill, he was the son of Daniel Dimock Clark, who platted Clarkville, later Clark’s Hill, on September 8, 1849. The name of the town was changed to Clark’s Hill in 1853 after it was discovered there was a town with the same name in Henry county. Daniel Dimock Clark was born in Connecticut in 1813. Seeking a new home in the Midwest, he came to what is now Lauramie township at the age of 25 in 1838. He encountered hardships but he was equal to the emergency. Envisioning a new day for himself and his family, he returned to the East and brought his wife westward. He built a cabin and commenced life anew.
