Biography

"Mr. Clark was distinguished for his zeal and fidelity as a preacher, and for the ability and sound logic which his sermons displayed... he carried on a farm of considerable size, performing all the labor himself, yet his industry and his devotion to his pastoral duties were unceasing"

"His house was a favorite resort for the patriots of the day. Here John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and their friends, found a safe retreat, where they could, in security, form those plans which were to save their county, and gain new courage and wisdom from the counsels of their host. At the battle of Lexington his house was thrown open, and the wounded and dying were placed under the care of his family."[1]

Marriage

"He m. Sept 21, 1757, Lucy Bowes, of Bedford, dau. of Rev. Nicholas and Lucy (Hancock) Bowes, and cousin of Gov. John Hancock"[2]

Burial

Church Hill Cemetery, Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts [3]
