Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1753, Ireland
Death: Nov. 9, 1796
Abbeville County
South Carolina, USA





Francis Clarke was about twenty-three and Alice Rice was about forty-one when they married about 1777.

Their known children:

Hannah Clarke (Wardlaw)(b.1778 d.1825)
William Clarke (b.1779)
Mary Clarke (Rose)(b.1781 d.1830)

They had been married about nine years and their daughter, Mary was about five years old when Francis died on August 22, 1786 in Charleston County, South Carolina.

Alice and her children moved to Abbeville sometime after the death of Francis. She met John Quay who years before had built and ran the Quay tavern, which was also the stagecoach stopover and popular social center. Alice married John Quay and they moved into the former tavern.

After her death, her daughter, Hannah and husband, James Warlaw bought the house and their son, David was born there in March 1799. They added several rooms and modernized the house, raised their family there and died there.

Alice lived to about age 61.
