DEATH OF A FROMER RICHFIELD YOUNG MAN
Thomas E. Clark Expires at the Home of His Sister Last Saturday
A sudden death in this city last Saturday morning was that of Thomas Erastus Clark, born in Richfield Sept. 29, 1879, a gentleman who grew to early manhood in this city, but who left here years ago to seek a competence in other fields. He was a son of the late W. H. and Mary A. Clark, pioneer residents of Richfield, and had many relatives here, among them being a brother S. G. Clark and a sister, Mrs. Alex Elliott. Seventeen years ago Mr. Clark became a resident of Pioche, Nevada, where for a long time he had lucrative employment in the great DeLamar mines and mill. From that place he removed to California, attracted by the new oil fields near Bakersfield. Here again he had steady employment and enjoyed the confidence of the company which was engaged in boring for oil. Some two years ago his health began to fail and he spent a year in Kansas and Oklahoma seeking to regain his former vigor, but all his efforts were unavailing. His health continued to decline and about two weeks ago he returned to his boyhood home in Richfield, making quarters with his sister, Mrs. Alex Elliott. His condition became very alarming last Thursday night and on Saturday morning he passed peacefully away.
The funeral services were held in the third ward chapel Sunday afternoon. Many relatives and friends of the deceased being present. The services were in charge of Bishop James Anderson and the music was by the chapel choir, Miss Christine Robinson, singing a beautiful and appropriate solo. H. N. Hayes was the speaker. He told of Mr. Clarks life in this city and of his wanderings and extended sympathy to the relatives.
Mr. Clark dark had never married. At the funeral all surviving relatives were present excepting a sister, Mrs Mary E. Nebeker, of Twin Falls, Idaho who was unable to be
present.
The interment was in the Clark burial lot in the city cemetery.
