Birth: Sep. 10, 1824, USA
Death: Feb. 12, 1895, USA

Son of Ephriam & Alice (Gibson) Clark. He came to Oregon in 1847 and settled in Kings Valley, Oregon. Here me met Mary Ann ALLEN and the married in 1849. They are the parents of Lura, Loren Day, Elmer Ross, Charles N, Edward W, Emily A, Hiram E, Sylvia, Mary A, Mary E, Sanford E & David A.
After the Indian massacre at the Whitman Mission (Washington State), men were asked to volunteer (enlist) to form a group to go after the Indians (known as Cayuse Indian War). Great grandpa joined one of these groups and served in the 1st Oregon Rifleman for three months.
In 1874, for his service in the War he received a land grant near what today is Lexington, Oregon. He moved his family there and developed this land as a cattle ranch. After about ten years, they moved on and went to Dayton, Washington where it was MUCH greener. In Dayton he served as a Justice of the Peace and had the honor of marring many couples. It was here that I first found him refered to as Squire Clark. Doesn't that make him sound important? To me, though he is my great grandfather...whom I never knew.
