Autry's "Historic Linwood Cemetery," Volume 1, p. 38, reports in her Section A, Lot 48: Infant of Rev. & Mrs. J. G. HARRISON, 12 AUG 1893 (only date).
Hi – thank you for creating this memorial for Ruth. I came across the following about her and her family:
“Death of an Infant.
Ruth, the two days old daughter of Rev. and Mrs. C. T. CLARK, died at their residence Sunday morning at five o’clock. The death was caused by congestion of the lungs. The funeral services took place at the house Sunday afternoon at five o’clock, and were conducted by Rev. W. L. WOOTEN, the interment being at Linwood cemetery. Messrs. F. J. ALLEN, H. L. CLAUGHTON, W. C. CARY and B. F. KETCHUM were the pall bearers. The family have the sincere sympathy of their friends in their loss.” [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Tuesday, 17 APR 1900, p. 8.]
The 1900 city directory for Columbus, Georgia, p. 210, shows: CLARK, Charles T., Rev. (wife C. Effie), pastor of Broad Street Methodist Episcopal Church, residing at 620 Tenth Street [Columbus]
The 1900 census of City Ward 1 in Militia District #773 (Upper Town District) of Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia, shows residing at 622 Sixteenth Street (all born in Georgia): Chas. T. CLARK (born April 1858, clergyman, married 9 years), wife Cora E. (April 1874, married 9 years, 0 children), and Charles’ children: John F. (Oct. 1880), Mary J. (Nov 1892- she and John attending school), Mattie H. (May 1895), and Charles E. (April 1897), as well as aunt Amanda P. ADAMS (Nov 1844, a widow, who had borne 1 child, no longer living) and a servant. Since Cora Estelle had borne no children, perhaps all of these were adopted children?
Thanks again – John
