History of Winona County, MN 1883
Charles Clark was born in Delaware county, New York, August 15, 1836, and received a limited common school education. His father moved to Wisconsin, and kept a dairy for several years, and then to Pleasant Hill, Minnesota, in 1855, and bought out the claim of Hosea Raymond, and moved into the claim shanty 12x16 feet, without roof, floor, door or window. Here he lived with his widowed daughter and her three children (making a family of nineteen souls) from September 1 until November 1. While in this crowded and exposed condition no less than nine of the family had the ague at one time.
Charles Clark was married to Eliza Johnson in 1861, and the next year he worked his father's farm, and in the early winter he moved to the city of Winona and followed teaming through the winter. In the spring he moved on eighty acres north of his father's and went to farming. He has cleared and improved his farm until at present (1882) there only remains four or five acres of unredeemed land upon his eighty. Mr. Clark has suffered considerable loss in stock; having lost seven or eight head of horses at different times, some of them values at $200 to $300. He has family of six children: the eldest, Olive M. is married to the only son of Samuel W. Spalding. The rest are with their parents in the enjoyment of peace and plenty.
