Biography

Patience was likely the daughter of Daniel & Elizabeth Williams b. Jan 14, 1739/40 in Lebanon, CT. [1]

She married Amos Clark about 1767,[2] probably in Lebanon, CT.

She appears in the probate papers of her husband, following his death in 1795:[3]

To Patience Clark, the Widow of the said Deceased one third part
of the [last] mentioned Sum, which is Seventy four Dollars
seventy two Cents and three Mills ~ ~ - - - - $74..72..3
And that the remaining Sum of One hundred forty nine
Dollars forty Cents and Six mills, be divided and paid in equal
parts of Shares to and amongst, Augustus Clark, Amos Clark,
Percy Clark King Wife of Henry King, Hubbard Clark, Zenas
Clark, Elisha Clark, and Shubal Clark, Children and
Heirs of the said deceased, to wit the Sum of Twenty one
Dollars, thirty four Cents and nine Mills to each of them.

Patience died in 1801 or 1806. She is buried in Town Hall Cemetery, Washington, Berkshire County, MA.[4] Records for Town Hall Cemetery list her year of death as 1806, however, on her headstone, the date looks like 1801. This would make her year of birth 1739. (Her tombstone had been broken and re-set but is 95% legible in 2017).

The headstone of Patience Clark:

In memory of
Mrs.
PATIENCE CLARK
relict of
Mr. Amos Clark
who died
April 5, 180[1?]
[in] the 62nd year
[of] her [age]
