Clarissa (Clara) Lake was born 17 December 1828, at Ernestown, Ontario, Canada. She was the daughter of James Lake and Philomela Smith. Her family joined the L.D.S. Church in Canada, and moved to Kirtland, Ohio soon afterwards. They went through the persecutions of the L.D.S. and finally came to the Salt Lake Valley. It is said that as soon as Pleasant Green saw Clara driving her covered wagon with her pretty sun-bonnet on, he knew she was the girl for him. Clara was a lovely wife and mother. She supported her husband in all that he did. Clara died 15 June 1900, at Harrisville, Weber, Utah. She was buried at the Ogden City Cemetery, Ogden, Weber, Utah.
