Thomas Stockton Clark
Birth: Oct. 1, 1834
Death: Sep. 8, 1902
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Father of four children ,three of whom died in infancy .His fourth child Grace and her infant died shortly after Grace gave birth.

From the memorial book honoring his wife Permelia-

"I am writing these closing lines on Christmas Day 1894.I am alone in the house from which they were carried to their final resting place.The dog which my daughter loved lies at my feet.The clock which Aunt Lucy's gave my wife ticks on the shelf.The flowers they cared for so tenderly are sitting on the windows.Much of the furniture is arrainged as they left it.Their handiwork is around me wherever I turn my eyes.The passing holidays bring again in review all the years we spent together. I had passed my 29th birthday when I married Permelia,I have passed my 60th now,and although it is never safe to say with absolute certainty,if I had my life to live over again I would do this or avoid that,yet I think "yes" I feel "sure",that if I stood again by her side as I stood the morning of my wedding day,and all my life with her had been revealed as it lies now recored in the memories of the past,I would take her hand in mine and join my life to hers just as gladly as I did then." "With the light of that revelation illumining my path I would welcome the joyous experiences as they come. With a clear understanding of the responsibilities which that relationship involved I would strive to discharge them better than I have done." "I would accept the pain and disappointment and sorrow as bravely as I might,but my hand should not tremble nor my response be less clear because of that revelation,than it was then ,when all our future was concealed"T.S. Clark 12-25-1894(Married Permelia Durfee on Thanksgiving Day 1863 at the Baptist parsonage in Northville.Had dinner at the Home of Dr. J.M. Swift. They had first met at The State Normal School in 1858,Thomas,one year ahead left that year to teach.)
