"A Genealogy of the Clark Family", by Henry William Clark, Montgomery, Alabama - 1905:

Nancy Walker Davis Clark was the daughter of Thomas and Laurania Davis who at one time resided in Butts County, Georgia. Nancy Walker Davis was born at Montevallo, Shelby County, Alabama on October 23, 1833. Her parents removed to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Nancy was nominally adopted by her maternal uncle Judge Thomas A. Walker of Jacksonville, Alabama. She received her education in the schools of her adopted town. She was a great favorite with her uncle and at his death her children inherited the major portion of Judge Walker's handsome estate. She was a devout member of the Presbyterian Church. Her domestic traits were exceptional as housewife, mother and nurse, often aiding her husband in nursing his patients. Mrs. Clark was one of the organizers of the Confederate Memorial Association in Selma, Alabama; was for some years president of the same and was one of the few active members who pursued unfaltering the work of erecting the monument to the Confederate dead in Live Oak Cemetery. Her sunny cheerful disposition kept her raven locks in their pristine beauty to the last years of her life, untouched by Time's finger tips. She passed to her well-earned reward February 29, 1892.
