The information on Samuel Clark's father comes from a family history given to me from a cousin Jim Clark that lived in Bath County until his death in 2005. It reads "Samuel or Robert of Scotch descent was born in Ireland, came to PA and then to Rockbridge County,VA and finally Bath County,VA. He is said to have fought in the Revolutionary War, but this has not been proved. He had several daughters and one son Samuel b.1797 d.May 8,1880 (buried in the graveyard on Clark Homestead) m. Sarah (Sallie)Windon April 12, 1827. (This information from Uncle Andrew Clark) (Uncle John Clark thought his name might have been Robert) Found in the annals of Bath County Pages 11,12,40. The Clarks were immigrants of Province Ulster, Northern part of Ireland, The County Antrim. Fled to America to get away from persecution."
