May 1906 Issue of the "Pittsburg Headlight" Newspaper
Amos J. Clark, an older soldier, age 82 yrs. died this morning at the home of H. C. Dyer, a farmer residing near Opolis, after a lingering illness with a complication of diseases. The deceased only recently returned from a trip to California for his health and became so ill on the return journey that he was forced to leave the train at Pittsburg and go to the home of Mr. Dyer, he being on his way to his brothers home in SW Missouri. The funeral will be held tomorrow from the Dyer home and the remains will be buried in Crocker Cemetery. He leaves a grown son residing in Seattle, Washington to mourn his demise.
NOTE: Henry C. Dyer was the son in law of Malvina Clark Roberds, sister of Amos. The obit is a little confusing in that Amos would have been on his way to visit his brother Charles Wesley Clark in Texas Co. Missouri. He left a daughter Charity Clark Watson in Seattle not a son.
