Birth: Apr. 2, 1873
Heppner
Morrow County
Oregon, USA
Death: Nov. 16, 1950
Milton-Freewater
Umatilla County
Oregon, USA

Son of Oscar F & Mary Ann (Allen) Clark...Husband of Martha Elizabeth Dickenson...Father of 15 - 4 children died at or shortly after birth; 11 survived to 'old'age with one still living. They are L.D., Elbert, Sylvia Alice,
Sims (my father), Dean, Carl, Frank, Ross, Ralph, Elizabeth & Mary.
He was a carpenter and built many houses and remodeled others. He also made toys for his children and grandchildren.
He loved music and sang alot. He was just learning to play some musical instruments when he had an accident in a saw mill and lost the use of his left hand. But, he could still sing!
He was raised as Baptist and turned Methodist but came back to the Baptist faith (1917).
For recreation he wanted to go fishing. He would walk up the river near his home and then fish his way back down.
He was a good cook and his speciality was hash. He always made the gravy for breakfast (always stiring up, around, across, and down; never varying that pattern) while his wife finished preparing the meal.
He loved horses and dogs. He could train them well, especially the dogs, when he was through they could almost talk. He was an expert horseman and could out ride the younger generation.
Special thanks to his daughter, Mary, for most of this information.
