These deeds established the sites of the plantations of the several Clarks, who resided in the Fork Creek section of Louisa County.

7. MILDRED CLARK
8. AGNES CLARK

10. LOUISA CLARK, m. JOHN STONE, 14 February 1756, Louisa Co., Va.

CHRISTOPHER CLARK (FRANCIS) was born in Louisa Co., Va., and died before 20 November 1790 in Anson Co., N. C. He married ELIZABETH STONE May 14, 1752 in Louisa Co., Va., daughter of NICHOLAS STONE and MARY. She was born 1724 in Caroline Co., Va., and died 1769 in Anson Co., N. C.

Christopher Clark and his brothers, Benjamin and Francis Clark, were all members of the Cedar Creek and Camp Creek Monthly Meetings in Virginia. As a result some records about these families remain available. All three men were sons of Francis Clark, died 1769 Louisa County, Virginia, and his wife Cordelia Lankford.

Christopher Clark, son of Francis, received permission to marry Elizabeth Stone, daughter of Nicholas Stone and his wife Mary on 14 May 1752. Christopher Clark, son of Francis Clark, was commended to the Friends at the Pee Dee in North Carolina 10 October 1754. Both Christopher Clark and his brother, Francis Clark, were received by the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting February 7, 1754.

On November 30, 1751 Christopher Clark and Benjamin Clark, both of Louisa Co., Va., bought 240 acres of land from John Kemp on the west side of the Pee Dee River, near an old Indian grave, land originally granted by patent to William Kemp Jan 21,1746. The deed was witnessed by Andrew Moorman Sr., and Andrew Moorman, Jr. In 1756, John Moorman sold 250 acres of land granted to him Feb 25, 1754 to Francis Clark. In 1758, Christopher and Francis Clark's land were adjacent to each other and to Thomas Moorman. Later deeds make it clear that Francis Clark's land was on the east side of the Pee Dee River and on the waters of Hitchcock Creek, in what became Richmond Co., N. C., whereas the lands associated with Christopher Clark were on the west or southwest bank of the Pee Dee river and the waters of Island Creek.

Christopher Clark sold a 400 acre parcel of land in two tracts on Jones Creek to George Jefferson on September 20, 1777 for £200 North Carolina money. The first tract was described as part of a 600 acre grant made October 11, 1749 to Hopkin Howell, who sold the land September 4, 1755 to David Hildreth, who in turn sold the land March 9, 1759 to Christopher Clark. The smaller, 100 acre tract was granted directly to Christopher Clark on October 26, 1767.

On January 31, 1783 Darius Berns sold to Jones Lee a tract of land on the southwest side of the Pee Dee River and on the waters of Island Creek joining Christopher Clark's mill. On January 27, 1792 Benjamin Moorman received land grant #1140 for 100 acres of land adjacent Christopher Clark.

The Last Will and Testament of Christopher Clark

In the name of God, Amen. I, Christopher Clark of the County of Anson and in the State of North Carolina, being of perfect mind and memory, and recalling the uncertainty of this transitory life and that we men must yield unto death when it pleases God to call, and for the better disposing of my worldly estate and such goods and matters as it hath pleased Almighty God through his great mercy to bestow on me in this life, I do make , sign, seal and publish and declare this my last Will and Testament in manner and form following, that is to say: IMPRIMIS.

I give and bequeath to my son, Joseph Clark, all the lands and improvements wherein I now live, and use all the lands thereunto adjoining to him and assigns forever.

I give and bequeath unto my daughter Mary Stitt, all the remainder part of my lands on Stand Creek, lying above the first pranch that runs into my Mill Pond (joining Francis Clark's land), as is above mentioned, to her, her heirs and assigns forever.

Joseph Clark, two negroes, viz. Tom and Jesse, to him, his heirs and assigns forever, except by law or virtue of the said state, in setting said negroes free.

And lastly I appoint my two sons, Joseph Clark and Francis Clark, and Benjamin Mooreman, Executors to this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me made, confirming this only to be my last will and testament.

Signed, sealed and delivered, this twenty ninth day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

Attest:

Recorded this 20th day of November 1790.

s/ William Johnson, Clerk

Children of CHRISTOPHER CLARK and ELIZABETH STONE are:

1. MARY CLARK, b. Anson Co., N. C.; d. 1821, Anson Co., N. C.

2. JOSEPH CLARK, d. about 1822, Anson Co., N. C.; m. MARTHA, before 4 October 1792, Anson Co., N. C.

Joseph Clark married Martha before 4 October 1792.

Joseph Clark, Francis Clark, and Robert Clark are listed sequentially in the 1790 Census for Anson Co., N. C. Joseph is listed with one male over 16, four other white persons, and four slaves. In 1800 Joseph Clark is 26-45, with one son under 10, two women under 10, two 10-16, and one women 26-45, and also 9 slaves. In 1810, he has one son under 10, one 10-16, and himself over 45, two girls under 10, one 10-16, two 16-26, and one 26-45. In the 1820 Census he was listed with one son 16-26, and five women, one each under 10, 10-16, 16-26, 26-45 and over 45.

From the Census, we can deduce the presence of two sons, one born 1794-1800, and one born between 1800 and 1804. He was born 1756-1765, based on being 26-45 in 1800 and over 45 in 1810. Martha was born 1765-1775 using the same sort of analysis. It does not appear that Joseph Clark was married in 1790, so it seems likely that Martha was born closer to 1775.

Joseph Clark distributed his property to his two sons and three unmarried daughters in a series of deeds dated 29 March 1822 that were recorded in Anson Co., N. C. in October 1830. To his son Martin, he gave 150 acres in two tracts on the southwest side of the Pee Dee River adjacent to the tract that he gave to his other son, Hiram, that were parts of grants to Christopher Clark and to Kemp. To his son Hiram, he gave an unspecified amount of acreage in four tracts: a.) part of 412 acres granted to Christopher Clark, b) acreage granted to Kemp, c) "20 acres beginning on Joseph Clark's tract on the river, runs down the river to include 120 ac. joins mouth of a branch at lower end of an apple orchard & upper corner of the tract on the river; being "that" part of a grant to Thomas Slay which was sold by John Auld to Smith Fields; and (d) 10 ac; border begins at a small white oak near and old river roads, joins east most prong of the branch & fourth line of grant to Thomas Slay."

Joseph Clark deeded to his daughters Harriett Clark, Nancy Clark, and Mary Clark a tract of 273 acres that bordered the land given to Martin Clark and the river, part of a grant to Christopher Clark as well as part of a grant to Kemp, and a tract of 187 acres bordering Marshall Diggs, Hammer's third corner, and David Liles, that was part of a 1756 grant to John Hammer, Esq.

Martha Clark relinquished her interest in the above tracts of land to her children: Hiram Clark, Martin Clark, Harriett Clark, Nancy Clark, and Margery (sic) Spencer on October 14, 1823, in a deed proved in October 1830 along with the above mentioned deeds.

In order to divide the land left to the three daughters, Nancy Clark made a deed for the land for 10 shillings to her sister Harriett on October 21, 1835. The land was described then as a tract of 95 acres beginning at a sassafras on the bank of the Pee Dee River, joining a spring near Camden Road, that had been badly eroded, and a second tract of 95 acres that began at a stony field, and adjoined Island Creek, Thomas Ingram's, formerly David Liles', and an old road.

FRANCIS CLARK, b. 1755, Louisa Co., Va.; d. about 1818, Anson Co., N. C.; m. MARY STITT, before October 4, 1792, Anson Co., N. C.; d. circa 1832, Anson Co., N. C.

Francis Clark married Mary Stitt before 4 October 1792.

Francis Clark is listed in the 1790 Census just after his brother Joseph, and is reported with one male over 16, one male under 16, and one female. He also had three slaves. Ten years later he is listed as "Frank" Clark and has two sons under 10, and himself 26-45, three girls under 10, and his wife also 26-45, and three slaves.

In 1810 he listed two sons under 10, one 10-16, and one 16-18, plus himself now over 45. He also has his wife, still 26-45, one daughter under 10, and two daughters 10-16. He still owned one slave.

The 1820 Census does not show Francis, but it does show Christopher Clark as head of household with one woman 26-45, two men 26-45, and four younger males. This is consistent with 1853 Christopher Clark of Henry Co., Tenn., whose eldest son, William, was born in 1818. Francis and Mary Stitt Clark's son John married Manila Jernigan and also moved to Henry Co., Tenn., where he died after 1860 and she died 25 June 1850.

ANN CLARK, m. BENJAMIN MOORMAN, 1783, Anson Co., N. C.

Benjamin Moorman was the son of John Moorman and Tabitha Clark. Both John Moorman and Tabitha Clark Moorman died 1758 Anson Co., N. C. Their young son Benjamin was adopted by his brother Benjamin Moorman and his wife Lucy. Since Ann Clark and Benjamin Moorman were disowned by the Quaker community for marrying "too close of kin," Tabitha Clark must have been a daughter of Francis Clark and Cordelia Lankford, making the couple first cousins.

BEVERLEY CLARK (JOSEPH, FRANCIS) died after December 5, 1795 in Anson Co., N. C. He married CARY.

On January 22, 1782 Beverly Clark purchased 100 acres of land from John Ricketts described as on the southwest side of the Pee Dee River adjoining his own land and that of Christopher Clark. Beverly Clark is in the Anson Co., N. C., 1790 Census with one male over 16, three males under 16, and three females in his household, plus one slave.

William Haymore

Jason Crier s/ Beverly Clark

It appears that Robert Clark is the eldest son, and has already been provided for, as he is barely mentioned in the will. Benjamin is specified as the youngest son, so by implication, John is the middle son. The will does suggest that both the younger sons are minors.

Children of BEVERLEY CLARK and CARY are:

1. ROBERT CLARK, b. 1764, Anson Co., N. C.; d. about 1815, Anson Co., N. C., married MARY CLARK, daughter of CHRISTOPHER CLARK and ELIZABETH STONE. She was born in Anson Co., N. C., and died 1821 in Anson Co., N. C.

2. JOHN CLARK.

There is a John Clark in the 1800 Census for Anson Co., N. C., who is 26-45 years old, has one son under 10, two daughters under 10, one 10-16, and his wife 26-45. He also has 9 slaves. It seems unlikely that this is the John Clark son of Beverly, who was probably under age in 1795. There are no other listings for John Clark in 1810 or 1820.

3. BENJAMIN CLARK.

There are no census listings in Anson Co., N. C., for Benjamin Clark until 1830, son of Robert. The person in the 1830 Census is certainly too young to be Benjamin (Beverley) Clark.

4. LUCY CLARK.

5. MARY CLARK (CHRISTOPHER, FRANCIS) was born in Anson Co., N. C., and died 1821 in Anson Co., N. C. She married (1) JOSEPH STILL, son of AMBROSE STILL and ANN. He was born 1754 in Anson Co., N. C., and died about 1795 in Anson Co., N. C. She married (2) ROBERT CLARK, before 1800, Anson Co., N. C., son of BEVERLEY CLARK and CARY. He was born 1764 in Anson Co., N. C., and died about 1815 in Anson Co., N. C.

Robert Clark is listed in the 1790 Census over 21, with three women and two slaves. In the 1800 Census, he has one male under 10, and himself 26-45, with one girl under 10, one woman 26-45, and one woman over 45, who is presumably his mother. He also has two slaves. In 1810, he has two boys under 10, one 10-16, and himself, 26-45, one girl 10-16, and his wife, 26-45, and one slave. He is not present in the 1820 Census. His date of birth calculates to 1764 to 1769 from the census, since he appeared in his own right in 1790.

In 1790, but not in the later censuses, Robert Clark appears directly after Joseph and Francis Clark. However, Robert Clark does not appear in the Quaker records for either Virginia or North Carolina, unlike Christopher Clark and his children. Since Benjamin Clark was dismissed from the Quaker meeting in 1766, this supports the notion that the Robert Clark of Anson Co., NC is the son of Beverly Clark noted in the will.

On 22 February 1800, Robert Clark, Samuel Wilson, and Leonard Webb of Anson County made an indenture with John Moorman of Richmond County for a tract of 77 acres "being a part of tract of 200 acres fell by heir ship to Joseph Still, son of Ambrose Still, and the 77 acres became the property of Joseph Stills wife and two daughters, since married to Robert Clark." The deed was signed by Robert Clark, Mary Clark, Leonard Webb, Nancy Webb, and Samuel Wilson and Elizabeth Wilson.

The 1830 Census for Anson Co., N. C., shows Benjamin Clark, 20-30 years old, with one boy under five, three girls under five, one girl 5-10, and his wife also 20-30 years old. This matches up in terms of number, if not quite in age, with the data found in the 1840 census. There is no one named Benjamin Clark in the 1820 Census for Anson Co., N. C., which is consistent with a birth year of 1803.

Examination of Anson County, N. C., records shows that Mary Clark wrote her last will and testament on July 8, 1821 and it was proved in April 1822. She wrote

I give and bequeath unto my three sons, William Clark, Sandy Clark, and Benjamin Clark, all the lands that was given to me by my father, lying and being on Island Creek. I also will that my son William's part of said land should be laid off to include his improvement.

The will also mentions two daughters, Nana Webb and a deceased daughter, Elizabeth Wilson. The will was witnessed by Hiram Clark and Christopher Clark. This, of course, matches with the names listed in the sale of the 77 acres in 1800.

William Clark is listed in the 1820 Census for Anson Co., N. C., with two men 16-26, two boys under 10, and one boy 10-16, one woman 26-45, one woman 16-26, and one girl under 10. This may not be William Clark, son or Robert, though. Mary Clark is listed with two men 16-26, but none 16-18, one woman 16-26, and one woman over 45, presumably herself. Benjamin Clark could be part of either of these households.

Benjamin Clark appears in the deed records of Anson County, North Carolina on several occasions, and these records establish his family relationship with William and David Clark, and also with his maternal grandfather, Thomas Arrington and also with Francis Clark.

On August 6, 1828, the following indenture was made, and recorded in October 1828.

David Clark, farmer Anson Co., to Robert C. Hattaway merchant, same; Clark owes Hattaway $255.46 by two notes: (a) "joint" note signed by me & Benjamin Clark dated 21 Jan 1828 for $140 & interest payable Jan 1 1829 & {b) dated today for $115.41 & interest payable 1 Mar 1829; to secure payment sold 2 tracts: (a) 17 acres, part of an island in Pee Dee R.; (b) ac. border: joins Benjamin Clark, Thos. Ingram, Joseph Clark, Jr., & James C. Liles; where my dwelling house stands & where I reside; both tracts allotted to me by persons who divided estate of Francis Clark deceased and became my property as legatee of said estate; (c) a small sorrel mare which I received of Ruffan Permenter; (d) my claim in a fish trap or fishery in Pee Dee R.; sale void if Clark pays notes by Jan 1, 1830; otherwise Hattaway can sell the property for cash or credit after giving 10 days’ notice; land & fishery remain in Clark's possession until sale. /s/ David Clark; wit: Martin Clark.

This indenture establishes a close relationship between Benjamin Clark and David Clark, who have adjoining properties. It also indicates that David was a legatee of Francis Clark, and received a horse from Ruffin Permenter, all of which are possible clues. Since the will of 1822 Mary Clark does not name David, this deed, by itself, does not establish that David Clark is the same person known as "Sandy Clark."

On 18 February 1828 William Clark sold 50 acres of land to Benjamin Clark described as being on the southwest side of the Pee Dee River, John Hammer's line on Island Creek, and about 12 poles from Christopher Clark's line, granted 18 April 1771 to Thomas Arrington. This deed was witnessed by David Clark and Benjamin Moorman. This deed seems to be referring to another piece of the land granted to Thomas Arrington, and certainly involves two of the sons of 1822 Mary Clark of Anson Co., N. C., as principals. The presence of David Clark as a witness supports the identification of him as "Sandy."

William F. Leak of Richmond Co., N. C., sold a tract of 267 acres to Marshall Diggs, Riley Diggs, and Thomas Diggs described as adjoining John and Benjamin Clark's corner. Riley Diggs later moved to Henry Co., Tenn., and married Sarah Clark, daughter of Benjamin and Winifred (Williams) Clark in 1852.

In July 1835 Benjamin Clark sold to William Clark a tract of 100 acres on the south side of Island Creek adjoining a line between his property and William Clark.[55] To date, I have not searched abstracts or grantor indexes for the deed books that follow, which would include those that should show the sell-out of Benjamin, John, and Christopher Clark prior to their move to West Tennessee.

Children of MARY CLARK and JOSEPH STILL are:

1. NANCY STILL, b. before 1780, Anson Co., N. C.; m. LEONARD WEBB before 1800 Anson Co., N. C.
2. ELIZABETH STILL, b. before 1780, Anson Co., N. C., d. before 1821 Anson Co., N. C.; m. SAMUEL WILSON before 1800 Anson Co., N. C.

Children of MARY CLARK and ROBERT CLARK are:

1. BENJAMIN CLARK, b. Circa 1803, Anson Co., N. C.; d. Aft. 1870, Weakley County, Tennessee.
2. WILLIAM CLARK, b. circa 1795, Anson Co., N. C.; d. 1862, Anson Co., N. C.; m. CHARLOTTE HINSON; b. 1803; d. 1866, Anson Co., N. C.
There is an online report that says William Clark was born 1795 and died 1862 in Anson Co., N. C. He married Charlotte Hinson, born 1803, and died 1866 Anson Co., N. C. This author also identifies him as a son of Robert Clark and Mary.
3. DAVID CLARK, b. 1801, Anson Co., N. C.

BENJAMIN CLARK (ROBERT, BEVERLEY, JOSEPH, FRANCIS) was born circa 1803 in Anson Co., N. C., and died after 1870 in Weakley Co., Tenn. He married WINNIFRED WILLIAMS circa 1827 in Anson Co., N. C. She was born circa 1807 in Anson Co., N. C., and died before 1870 in Weakley Co., Tenn.

Benjamin Clark appears in the 1840 Census for Henry Co., Tenn., separated from David Clark by about 40 names. Benjamin Clark is the 1850 Census separated from David Clark by only ten families. Benjamin Clark is listed as 47 and born in North Carolina, giving a birth year of 1803. His wife, Winny, is 42, also from North Carolina, with an estimated birth year of 1808. Analysis of the family structure in 1850 matches that for the 1840 list with the exception of one girl, who would have been born 1825-1830, and may therefore have been married before 1850, and one boy who would have been born 1830-1835. His absence suggests a childhood death. There are also four more children born between 1840 and 1850.

Benjamin Clark purchased a tract of 24 ¾ acres, described as located on the Middle Fork of the Obion River in Range 3, section 6, from James R. Allen on January 14, 1850. There is no evidence for the sale of this land.

Benjamin Clark moved to Weakley Co., Tenn., about 1855, and appears in the 12th Civil District in 1860. He is there again in 1870, although Winifred apparently died before 1870. Benjamin Clark is not listed in the 1880 Census. No record of his tombstone has been found.

The Census records are contradictory regarding the birthplace of Benjamin and Winifred (Williams) Clark's children. From the available data, the move occurred 1837-1840, but in the 1850 Census all the children were listed as born in North Carolina. By the 1870 Census, though, Alexander Clark says he was born in Tennessee. Tombstone data show his date of birth as March 23, 1835. Since Elizabeth Clark was born in 1830 in North Carolina, the move must have occurred between those dates. Since he does not appear for sure in Henry Co., Tenn., until 1840, the family may have spent several years elsewhere in Tennessee.
Children of BENJAMIN CLARK and WINNIFRED WILLIAMS are:

1. ELIZABETH CLARK, b. April 4, 1830, Anson Co., N. C.; d. July 29, 1905, Weakley Co., Tenn.; m. JESSE PARKER, August 27, 1856, Weakley Co., Tenn.; b. December 19, 1823, Marlboro Co., S. C.; d. September 16, 1902, Weakley Co., Tenn.
2. MARY CLARK, b. circa 1828, Anson Co., N. C.
Mary Clark is living in her father's household at age 42 in the 1870 Census.
3. ROBERT B. CLARK, b. December 11, 1828, Anson Co., N. C.; d. January 29, 1904, Weakley Co., Tenn.; m. HARRIET E. OWEN, December 19, 1850, Henry Co., Tenn.; b. June 6, 1834; d. June 20, 1901, Weakley Co., Tenn.
Robert Clark, 21, b. NC, is living in the household of his father in the 1850 Census. In the 1860 Census, Robert Clark, 30, is the head of household along with Harriett, 26, in the 10th Civil District of Henry Co., Tenn.
Robert Clark is buried in Everett Chapel Pentecostal Church Cemetery, Weakley Co., Tenn. Harriett E. Parker is next to him as described as "wife of R. B."
4. SARAH CLARK, b. circa 1833, Anson Co., N. C.; m. RILEY DIGGS, July 27, 1852, Henry Co., Tenn.
5. WILLIAM H. CLARK, b. circa 1834, Anson Co., N. C.
6. ALEXANDER CLARK, b. March 23, 1835, Henry Co., Tenn.; d. September 4, 1909, Weakley Co., Tenn.; m. MARTHA B.; b. December 27, 1845, Tennessee; d. November 28, 1894, Weakley Co., Tenn.
In 1870 Alexander Clark, 36, TN and Martha B. Clark, 34, along with Martha 2, are living in the 12th Civil District, Weakley Co., Tenn., near Benjamin Clark. They are buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Weakley Co., Tenn. Martha B. Clark may have been 24 rather than 34.
7. SUSAN CLARK, b. about 1836, Henry Co., Tenn.; m. THOMAS E. HALL, March 22, 1848, Henry Co., Tenn.
Thomas Hall, 29, farmer, VA, Susan, 23 NC, and Mary Hall, 5/12 are living in the 9th Civil District of Henry Co., Tenn., at the time of the 1850 Census.

JOSEPH CLARK

Joseph CLARK was born December 20, 1794 in Anson Co., N. C., and died September 9, 1871 in Greene Co., Arkansas. He married Biddy Ann PERMENTER before 1820 in Anson Co., N. C., daughter of John PERMENTER and Elizabeth. She was born June 10, 1801 in Anson Co., N. C., and died September 1892 in Greene Co., Arkansas.

Joseph Clark was a son of Francis CLARK, died about 1818 Anson Co., N. C., and Mary STITT of Anson Co., N. C. He and his brothers Christopher and John all came to West Tennessee, probably in about 1832. Joseph lived in Gibson Co., Tenn., in 1840, while Christopher and John lived in Henry Co., Tenn.

Joseph Clark and Biddy Ann Permenter had at least nine children. The eldest, Francis, was b. January 25, 1820 Anson Co., N. C., and died April 4, 1906 in Alamo, Crockett Co., Tenn. He had two wives and 18 children. They stayed in Haywood, now Crockett County, Tennessee.

The second child, John C. Clark, was born April 25, 1822 in Anson Co., N. C., and died November 30, 1898 in St. Francis Twp., Greene County, Arkansas. He had at two wives and 18 children. He moved after his second marriage with most, but not all of his children to Greene Co., Ark., about 1873.

I have limited information about the children of Joseph CLARK and Biddy Ann PERMENTER who moved to Greene Co., Ark., including Salina Clark; Christopher Clark; Susan Clark married Hiram F. Tennison; Elizabeth Clark; Sarah Clark; James Clark and Nancy Ann Clark, married Paul Whitfield BOYD in 1871 Greene Co., Ark.

Joseph CLARK's niece, Sarah CLARK, daughter of his brother, CHRISTOPHER CLARK and ELIZABETH WILSON, married Riley Diggs in Henry Co., Tenn., and moved to Greene Co., Ark., sometime about 1875.

Joseph Clark, died circa 1854 Greene Co., Ark., buried Clark Chapel, Greene County, Arkansas
He was a brother of 1853 Christopher Clark of Henry Co., Tenn., and both were sons of Francis Clark and grandsons of 1790 Christopher Clark of Anson Co., NC.


Joseph Clark participated in the estate sale for Christopher Clark. Joseph Clark married Locusa Witt February 17, 1848 Henry Co., Tenn. Joseph Clark sold a tract of 72 acres to Eliza Ward. [Henry Co., Tenn., Deed Book M:193.]

CHRISTOPHER CLARK
Christopher Clark first appears in the 1840 Census, age 50-60, with his wife, four sons and two daughters. He also appears in the 1850 Census in the 10th Civil District, at age 60, with his wife, Elizabeth, also 60, and William Clark, 32, Christopher T. Clark, 25, and Francis Clark, 16, all born in North Carolina.
Christopher Clark is buried in Palestine Cemetery, Henry County, Tennessee. He was born January 8, 1791 and died December 24, 1853. The inventory and sale of his estate was recorded 16 May 16, 1854. Among the purchasers are C. T. Clark, William Clark, Joseph Clark, Anderson A. Clark, Frank Clark, Elizabeth Clark, Benjamin Clark, and Delsey Clark, and also Riley and Thomas Diggs. C. T. Clark, as administrator for Christopher Clark, filed a report of disbursements on March 22, 1856 that included Philip A. Diggs, James Z. Gilbert, Lucinda Clark, William Clark, Joseph Clark, and Riley Diggs.

Christopher Clark descends from 1769 (year of death) Francis Clark of Louisa Co., Virginia, (place of death) and his wife Cordelia Lankford.

1. CHRISTOPHER (FRANCIS, MICAJAH) CLARK was born Louisa Co., Va., and died before November 20, 1790 Anson Co., N. C. He married May 14, 1752 Louisa Co., Va., ELIZABETH STONE daughter of NICHOLAS STONE AND MARY. She was born 1724 in Caroline Co., Va., and died 1769 Anson Co., N. C.

The second child of Christopher Clark and Elizabeth Stone was:

2. FRANCIS (CHRISTOPHER) CLARK was b. 1755 in Louisa Co., Va., d. about 1818 Anson Co., N. C. He married MARY STITT before October 4, 1792. She died about 1832 Anson Co., N. C.
Francis Clark is listed in the 1790 Census just after his brother Joseph, and is reported with one male over 16, one male under 16, and one female. He also had three slaves.
Ten years later he is listed as "Frank" Clark and has two sons under 10, and himself 26-45, plus three girls under 10, and his wife also 26-45, and three slaves.
In 1810 he listed two sons under 10, one 10-16, and one 16-18, plus himself now over 45. He also has his wife, still 26-45, one daughter under 10, and two daughters 10-16. He still owned one slave.
The 1820 Census does not show Francis, but it does show Christopher Clark as head of household with one woman 26-45, two men 26-45, and four younger males. This is consistent with 1853 Christopher Clark of Henry Co., Tennessee, whose eldest son, William, was born in 1818.

Children of Francis Clark and Mary Stitt are:

1. JAMES CLARK, b. 1788 Anson Co., N. C., d. 1854.
James Clark appears in the 1820 Census for Anson Co., N. C., with himself 26-45, two sons under 10, two women 26-45, and two daughters under 10, and one 10-16 years old.
2. CHRISTOPHER CLARK, b. January 8, 1791 Anson Co., N. C., d. December 24, 1853 Henry County, Tennessee
3. WILLIAM CLARK, b. 1794 Anson Co., N. C., d. 1862. He married CHARLOTTE HINSON, b. 1803 Anson Co., N. C., d. 1863.
I have noted that William Clark appears in the 1820 Census for Anson Co., N. C. It is uncertain if this is William (Francis, Christopher, Francis) or his cousin, William (Robert, Beverly, Benjamin, Francis) Clark, but I have chosen to list the information with the latter entry.
4. JOSEPH CLARK, b. 1794
Joseph Clark "JR" appears in the 1820 Census, but the deed records make it clear this is to denote that he is younger than the other Joseph Clark, who was the father of Martin Clark and Hiram Clark. He is 26-45 years old, and he has three males in his household, one 16-26, one 10-16, and one under 10. He also has one woman, 16-26.
Joseph Clark married Birdie Ann Permenter and came to Haywood Co., Tennessee, when the rest of his family moved to Henry Co., Tennessee. He subsequently moved to Greene Co., Arkansas.
5. JOHN CLARK, b. 1802 Anson Co., N. C.; d. after 1860 Henry Co., Tennessee, m. MANILA JERNIGAN, b. July 2, 1801 Anson Co., N. C.; d. June 25, 1850 Henry County, Tennessee
6. SUSANNAH CLARK
7. FANNY CLARK
