John Clark wrote his Will, 2nd of February, 1762, at Northampton, Hampshire, MA. In it he names: Eldest son John, sons Eliakim, Aaron, Elisha (deceased), Ithamar, Gershom & David & daughters, Elizabeth (wife of Benjamin Edwards, Catherine, (wife of Samuel Edwards, Sarah (wife & widow of Mathew Clark) & Jerusha (deceased wife of Jonathan Kingsley. He also mentions, "my grandchildren, the children of my Daughter Jerusha Kingsley, deceased".... & "my grandchildren the Heirs of my son Elisha, deceased...".
The link to the Will of John Clark, is found at AmericanAncestors.org, but the will is in shambles. It fell apart & was haphazardly place back together in an order that was not appropriate. I've taken the pieces, put in the correct order & created new files. Those pages will be posted as an image in this profile. Unfortunately, there were still pieces missing & text too difficult to read, but there was another version, a transcribed version I found. That will be uploaded as well, as I do not have a url to post.
His Will was proved, 6th of September, 1768.
Note that he writes, "my grandchildren, the children of my Daughter Jerusha Kingsley, deceased...". Grandchildren is plural, which implies that Jerusha Clark Kingsley had more than one child with Jonathan Kingsley. It is clearly known that Jonathan & Jerusha had a daughter Jerusha, but a birth record for Rachel Kingsley has not been found, nor has another child been attributed to this couple. Jonathan's 3rd wife, Rebecca Clark, wrote her Will in 1754 & mentions her children, but does not mention Rachel. It follows that Rachel was the daughter of Jonathan & Jerusha, not Jonathan & Rebecca & others have claimed.
John was born in 1679.
