At 5 o'clock a.m. on Thursday, April 12, 1906, Henry Clark of Nescatunga-tp., this county, breathed his last, after an illness extending through several months. Burial will take place today at 2 p.m. in the Coldwater cemetery.
Deceased was born near Cincinnati, Ohio., on November 18, 1825, and was, therefore, 80 years, 4 months and 14 days old at the time of his death. From Ohio Mr. Clark moved to Illinois, and lived in that state until 1888 when he moved with his family to this county where he had since continued to live. On July 29, 1860, while living in Illinois, Mr. Clark was married to Miss Martha Parcel, who, with three sons and one daughter survive him. The surviving children are: W. A. Clark of Protection, John Clark of Woods-co., Okla., George Clark of Illinois and Mrs. Lee Elzea, whose home is northeast of Coldwater.
Henry Clark was in every sense a devoted husband, a good neighbor and a worthy citizen. The bereaved family have the sympathy of many friends.

Bertha Annetta (Clark) Elzea, daughter of Henry Clark.
