About John Clark, III

Additional Curator's Notes

The primary source document for this profile is There is a discrepancy between the text in this source and the photo attached to the source. The text states John Clark III was born Oct. 20, 1725 in King and Queen County, Virginia. The gravestone in the photo gives his date of birth as 1728. The gravestone is a modern memorial put in place in 1952. It is possible that those who placed the new stone had the wrong date inscribed. It also possible that the writer of the FindaGrave text made an error. To date, we do not have any better source document for John Clark's date of birth, so this discrepancy will remain until such a document can be found. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Volunteer Curator, 12/30/2012.
