Obit from Waltham Eve. News:
"John R. Clark, one of Waltham's oldest and best known citizens passed away yesterday morning at his home, 64 Chestnut street. He had recently suffered a slight shock and had been in poor health for several weeks. He is the second to pass away of the trio that composed the famous Zimmerman bicycle club. W. R. Rogers died about two months ago and the last surviving member is John Harris of Cherry street. This trio of men, all over 75 years of age, had three-wheeled machines which they rode on about the country and would cover from 10 to 20 miles a day. Mr. Clark was an expert machinist and for many years was employed as such in the American watch factory. When the first automatic machine was made there, it was more of an experiment than anything else. Mr. Clark was set at work to overhaul this machine, and to test it qualifications from the standpoint of an expert. He was of an inventive turn of mind and the present wonderful automatic machines now in use, while not made by him, the inventors profitted in their experiments by advice and suggestions from Mr. Clark. He gave up active work some years ago. As a citizen Mr. Clark was highly esteemed and had the respect of all who knew him. He was a good kind hearted neighbor and his friendship was highly valued. He always took a great interest in local affairs, but was never active in politics. Mr. Clark was 81 years of age and leaves a wife, one son, Charles E. of this
city, and two daughters, one on California and the other in Washington where the latter is employed in one of the government buildings."

Son of Horatio Clark (burial location unknown), and Betsey (Bixby) Clark (probably buried in same plot at Mt. Feake, as there is a small stone with inscription "Mother")
