The grim harvester death again entered our midst and taken one of the town's oldest inhabitants. Thomas Clark was born in England in 1820. Soon after his marriage he sailed for this country and since that time has been a resident of this town. Mr. Clark was a very active, intelligent man, taking the keenest interest in all foreign as well as town affairs. Funeral services were held at his late home Sunday afternoon, March 17. Mr. Clark leaves an aged wife, two sons, Pulaski and Will Clark and two daughters, Mrs. Will Buchanan and Mrs. Marie Clark to mourn his loss.
