About Dea. John Clark

Birth: 1651 Death: Sep. 3, 1704 Massachusetts, USA

His death occurred "from fatigue and cold taken in a snow storm" en route home (Northampton,MA) from Boston. Most sources indicate he died Sept 3, but I have also seen Nov 2 as a death date, which would make some more sense if the cause of his death was a snowstorm. His death is recorded in Windsor, Hampshire Co, Massachusetts on Sep 3,1704.

His first wife was Rebecca Cooper Clark, daughter of Thomas Cooper and Sarah Slye Cooper of Springfield,MA.

His second wife was Mary Strong Clark, daughter of John Strong and Abigail Ford Strong.

Son of William Clark and Sarah ____ Clark of Northampton.

Children(by first marriage): Sarah Clark Field.

Children(by second marriage): John Clark Jr, Nathaniel Clark, Ebenezer Clark, Increase Clark, Mary Clark Edwards, Rebecca Clark Baker, Experience Clark Nash, Abigail Clark Cook, Noah Clark(husband of Eunice Dickinson Clark), Thankful Clark, and Josiah Clark.

John2 CLARK Deacon (William1 CLARKE) (#114) was born in Dorchester,Suffolk, MA 1 May 1651. John died 3 Sep 1704 in Windsor, Hartford, CT, at 53 years of age..

He married twice. He married Rebecah COOPER Northampton, Hampshire, MA, 12Jul 1677. Rebecah was born in Springfield,Hampden, MA 15 May 1657. R Rebecah died 8 May 1678 Northampton, Hampshire,MA, at 20 years of age. Rebecca was the daughter of Capt. Thomas Cooper and Sarah Russell. When Capt. Cooper was killed in the Indian attack on Springfield Massachusetts in 1675, his widow Sarah, fled to Northampton,and there married Lt. William Clarke over a year later..

John (Deacon) Clark was William's son, and therefore Sarah's stepson.Rebecca died from complications of childbirth, when their only child Sarah, was born on 20 Apr 1678 in Northampton. Rebecca was not yet 21 years old..

Deacon John married Mary Strong, daughter of Elder John Strong, the following year..

He married Mary STRONG Northampton, Hampshire, MA, 20 Mar 1679. Mary was born in Windsor, Hartford, CT 26 Oct 1654. Mary was the daughter of John STRONG Elder and Abigail FORD. Mary died 8 Dec 1738 Northampton,Hampshire, MA, at 84 years of age.The following was provided by Virginia Lagarias, taken from an unpublished manuscript compiled by Edith M. Clark Nyman. References: Warner Ancestry, Antiquities, Historicals and Graduates of Northampton; Hampshire Co. Probate Court - #32:1.

It is not known where Deacon John Clark lived and brought up his family, but probably, in the house later known as the Upham House, halfway between Pres. Seelyes' and Mr. Maltby's..

He inherited the southern six acres of Lt. William's homelot, but at that time, he was already the father of 8 children..

Sometimes referred to as "Sgt. John Clarke", but more usually as "Dea.John", he was a much respected and useful man in both town and church affairs..

He was first elected Selectman in 1689 and served in that office in 1692,93, 96, 98 and from 1700 until his death. He also served on numerous committees and was a Deputy to the General Court from 1699 to 1703..

In 1691, he was the sixth man chosen as Deacon of the First church and served 14 years until his death..

Massachusetts Bay House of Representatives, 1703 The following Representatives took the oaths appointed, and repeated and subscribed the Declaration: Countyof Hampshire John Hitchcock, Springfield John Clarke, Northampton Eliezar Frarey, Hatfield Thomas Hovey, Hadley Capt. Isaac Phelps, Westfield.

J.R. Trumbull in his "History ofNorthampton" - "As to longevity and rapid increase, he was the father of the most remarkable family probably ever reared in Northampton Ofhis 12 children, only 1 died young. The remaining 6 sons and 5 daughters all married and all outlived their mates. 3 sons lived past 80 years and 3 past 90..

When his widow,Mary, died she left 83 grandchildren. His sons and their spouses, with the exception of Nathaniel, are buried inside the main gate of Bridge St. Cemetery, between the main cemetery roadway and the BatesTomb. The stones, except Noah's are all standing and readable at this time (1977)..

Dea. John died at Windsor, Ct. Sept. 3, 1704 from fatigue and cold taken in a SNOWSTORM on his way home from Boston. At that time, a trip to Boston on horseback was about a week's journey. His children were all unmarried at the time so his death was a heavy blow to the family as well as to the church and community..

(My note - (This record has been repeated in every genealogy that I have read about Deacon John. I must really strain my imagination to think of a snow storm in early September in that part of New England. _______________________________

It HAD to have been a truly freak storm.)) Since there is no record of John Clark ever living in Windsor, he may have stopped there to inspect land inherited by his wife, Mary Strong.

On 12 Oct 1704, his widow and sons, John & Nathaniel, filed an inventory of his estate which included 13 parcels of land valued at L488-10. This included his house and homestead, and the Joshua Carter lot willed to him by his father and land in Lebanon, Ct. His personal estate valued at L161-9 included 2 oxen, 4 cows, 10 steers, 3 heifers, 3 horses, a mare, colt, sheep and a long list of household goods and furniture. The estate was owed L24-07-05 and owed debts which totaled L43-19-07. The net estate value was L630-06-05. (Hampshire Co. Probate Court # 32:1)

Even though Deacon John spelled his name CLARKE, most, if not all, Northampton records do not have the 'e' on them. I don't know if this had become the fashion at that time, or if it was caused by the vagaries of the recorders. In any case, the names of all of Deacon John's children were recorded in the VR's without the 'e', and from that point on, only the children of Deacon John's brother, William, who had removed to Lebanon, CT, retained the 'e'. This continued for many generations in the Connecticut CLARKE lines, and in fact, still continues among several lines there today.

In her manuscript, Ms. Nyman refers to the burial plot in Bridge St. Cemetery, but on my last trip there, I could not locate a stone for Deacon John, although there are several in that location that are so badly worn as to be unreadable.

-------------------- John, the son of William, went to Middletown, Conn.,

probably between 1675 and 1680, and married Elizabeth, the daughter of Captain Nathaniel White, of Middletown.

Among the early records of Middletown is one as follows :

" March 21. 1680. Land of John Clarke in Middleton in

the county of Hartford & Collony of Conoctociitt

Recorded to him & two his heirs forever . . . [among

other parcels] One parcell of meadow land which he

bought of Townehashquesuncksqua lying on the east side the Great River at Wongonk" [now Portland].

This John Clark probably lived in Middletown until

his death, which occurred July 26, 1731. He was called

Sergeant," more often " Senior," and appears to have

been a man of standing and property, his name occurring often in the land records.

About 1720 "Sergeant" John gave a homestead to

each of his three sons, the one given to his son John being the " homestead whereon the said father and said son John now dwelleth .... containing 13 acres," which

was in the " North Parish" of the town, on the west side

of the Connecticut River. A year prior to his death he

also conveyed to his son John 161 acres of land at Had-

dam. This land had been conveyed to the father, John,

by his brother Thomas, and in the deed their " Honored

Father, William Clark of Haddam, deceased," is spoken of.

John,

Daniel,

Elizabeth,

Mary,

Sarah,

White,

Mary,

Sergeant John and Lieutenant Thomas both sign their

deeds with a mark.

Nathaniel, John, and Daniel, the sons of Sergeant

John, married and had children at Middletown (see M.

Family Records).

-------------------- Married Mary Strong March 20 1679

Had 11 Children.

John Clark was Deacon of the Church and a Selectman of Northampton. Rep. in General Ct. in 1690-1700, 1701, 1702,and 1703. Ona trip to Windsor, CT, in 1704, he was caught ina storm which brought on a severe cold from which he died in Windsor.
