Enlisted in Hanover Co. VA in August 1777 & served in the First Regiment of the Virginia Artillery. Present at the Battle of Hampton and at Colonel Buford's defeat in North Carolina. The DAR ladies think William is buried near "Hewitts Fork". Exact location unknown. VA memorial stone placed in James Cemetery. Married in 1794 VA to Nancy Ann Williams. Had at least a daughter, born ca 1805. Perhaps a son Leonard also. She remarried to James Andrews and was widowed from him also when she filed for Widows pension in 1850 in Scioto Twp.

William Clark was born in 1755, he is believed to be an ancestor of Judith Clarke... She was a servant of a Joshua Slade in York County Virginia. On August 24, 1694 she had went to court and confessed to committing a sin of fornication with a Slave.
Our William lived in Amherst County VA for years before moving here to Ohio. In census records they have noted this family as being "man of Color" ect...Married Nancy Williams on Sept 3rd 1794 in Amherst Co. VA
His first marriage was Sally

It is believed there are two Williams that have been mixed together. With Records so hard to get ahold of and the same names used over and over its been hard... Would love help with this line.

His children were:
John Clark married Mary Hartless,
Nancy Clark married James Clark,
William Jr. Clark married Mary Clark,
Nelly Clark married John Painter,
Mary Clark and John Hartless,
James Clark and Polly Evans,
Henry Clark,
George Clark and Jane Johns,
Nancy Clark,
Rebecca Clark,
Jane Clark and Henry Hartless
Leonard Clark married Sally Williams
