Daniel Clark was an 1844 Immigrant to Oregon
"He built the bridge on Commercial St. in 1862, Salem"
At his residence, five miles southeast from Salem, early Thursday morning, Dec. 31, 1885, Mr. Daniel Clark. His disease was creeping paralysis.
Mr. Clark was born in Ireland in the year 1823. His parents immigrated to America when he was about four years of age, and settled in the state of Missouri, where young Daniel passed his boyhood.
He came to Oregon in the immigration of 1844, at the age of nineteen, and soon afterward settled in Marion county, where he lived until the time of his death. He was a farmer by occupation, though we believe he was taught the trade of a carpenter when young.
Mr. Clark was a man of great force of character, and possessed unusual energy. He was a man of impulsive temperament, and humane and generous to a high degree. As a neighbor he was, he was kind and obliging, and as a citizen he was forward in every good work. Mr. Clark was twice married, and his second wife and children survive him.
