My line of John Clark born in 1741 St Mary's County Marlyland and he ties in to most of these lines. I am curious if there are any connections to the Clark family that I am unaware of. There are associations for this family in Halifax County NC. This family was closely associated with William Pope in TN.
John was possibly in Montgomery County VA after the Revolutionary War. He was in Pittsylvania County VA by 1786. These families all seemed to migrate to the same areas.
I have yet to locate the first wife of John Clark but I would imagine she is from one of the associated families below.
Ambrose Cook Hawker, Josiah Earp, Zachariah Butt, , Zachariah Pruett and John and Leonard Clarke , John and William Stuart / Stewart and Thomas Hammond were all from Maryland. And migrated to Pittsylvania County VA and Caswell County NC. The intermarried and were generally acquainted.

Any Help would be appreciated
Don't know if this will help but I am a Clark from halifax county NC. Father was Edwin clark, grandfather Colie Clark, Great uncles Edwin, Robert, Thomas, david, great aunts Eunice, Elizabeth, Ruth, Hazel. Grandfather Colie married Carrie Crush. Edwin, my father, born 1914, married a Powell from Greenville County Virginia. Lots of Jordans in the family also, since my great grandmother was a Jordan on my father's side and my grandmother was a Virginia Jordan on my mother's side. Unrelated, i hope. Best, Chip Clark
You are the first Clark I've messaged from Halifax Co. I'm a Clark from Hertford Co. My paternal grandfather was Jimmy Conway Clark. I was told he grew up around Aurelian Springs area. I'm not sure exactly where that is but, I remember when I was a little girl, my dad took me to the Littleton area where we visited some Clark Family. I'd love to know if we are connected!
Very excited that there are other Clark ancestors out there looking. I live in TX and i am in search of any information about the Clark family of Halifax, Bertie County that migrated some how to Rapides Parish Lousiana, in particular LeCompte, LA. From what my little 83 y/o aunt is telling me John Clark is the father of Thomas Reuben Clark, and Thomas Reuben Clark is the father of Reuben, Ernest,David,Elizabeth, Harriett and Matilda Clark(my great grandmother). I would greatly appreciate any info anyone can find while searching the Clarks. May we are family as well.
I'll have to do some digging before I can give you a definite. Haven't looked at my genealogy stuff in a long time. I was born Sandra Clark. My dad was Sidney Thomas Clark. His dad was Jimmie Conway Clark who, I believe, was David Clark's son. I think his name was William David Clark. My granddaddy Jimmie grew up in Halifax County in the Aurealian Springs area. My daddy to me that granddaddy left home when he was about 14. Came to the Hertford County area of NC where he married my grandmother, Nettie Simons. We had family in Littleton, NC which is in Halifax County, also. I remember my dad visiting cousins there when I was little. I do know that my granddaddy's father was married twice and had children by both wives. My granddaddy was by the first wife.
