Biography

Susannah Clark was born about 1730 to Francis Clark and Cordelia Langford.

She married Joel Meador before November 25, 1751 in Virginia. They lived in Cumberland Co. before moving into southern Bedford Co., which became Franklin Co. i 1786. She lived in the area of Indian Creek not far from today's Hales Ford. She and her husband Joel were highly successful farmers and prominent citizens. She was one of very few citizens who could afford a luxury item like a riding chair in 1801.

Susannah probably died in January 1818 as her will was proven 2 February 1818. She was a long time resident of Franklin Co. and survived several of her children. She was probably nearly 90 years old when she died.
