"Death of Mr. Wm. CLARK. // This veteran christian gentleman died on the 11th inst. at the residence of his granddaughter, Mrs. E. M. WEEMS, of Chattahoochee county, after an illness of ten days. He had lived to the ripe age of eighty-nine years, having been born April 26th, 1792. The past sixty-five years of his life he has been an exemplary member of the Methodist church and when the summons came he was ready to try the realities of an unknown future, trusting in that God upon whome he has learned all these many years and whom he has always found to be sufficient in every hour of trial. With the assurance of divine grace as a support, he passed beyond the dark valley and the shadow of death, and while his friends weep over the cold ashes which were yesterday laid in the silent tomb, they know that he will live again with the glorified saints of the eternal God. // Mr. CLARK lived for thirty or more years in this county, and has a large circle of friends, and also a large connection of relatives. Of his immediate children, four survive him, two daughters and two sons, Mrs. CARTER, of Florence, and Mrs. COX, of Mississippi, are his daughters, and his sons, one lives in Memphis and another in Pensacola. Mrs. Thomas NUCKOLS, Mrs. Theophilus SAPP and Mrs. Forbs BRADLEY are his grand-daughters. // Mr. CLARK devoted himself to the cultivation of the soil and made farming his occupation, not seeking places of distinction. Though not at any time occupying a high official position, he was prominent among men who were themselves prominent, and was regarded by all his fellow men as an upright, christian gentleman. We can offer for him no higher compliment."
[Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, 13 Jul 1881, p. 4.]
