About Manlius Stimson Clarke

Clarke was the son of Rev. Pitt and Mary Jones (Stimpson) Clarke. His father's salary as a minister was not sufficient so he worked daily on his own farm and was assisted by young Manlius. Manlius at an early age "imbued with religious principles and educated into habits of industry, frugality, and self-denial." He attended Cambridge Law School for a year to explore if he wanted to be a lawyer instead of a reverend like his father and in 1843 formed a partnership with George Tyler Bigelow. Bigelow was later appointed Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court so Manlius became a law partner with his brother and was growing the practice when he was suddenly struck by an illness and died. Manlius was married to Frances Cordis Lemist and left three children, a son and two daughters. He is related to poet e. e. cummings and is buried in the same plot.
