About William Clark


William left his will in Estill County. In the will he named his children David, Thomas, Henry, Sarah Clark Parker, Elizabeth Clark York and his grand-daughter Leah Clark. He left his Cane Church Bible to David; his cooper tools to Thomas; one dollar each to Henry, Sarah and Elizabeth and to Leah he left his bed, sheets and his "little pot." To his wife Sarah, he left the remainder of his property.

Children of William Clark and Leah Johnson are:

  • +Henry Clark, b. 1779, North Carolina, d. Abt. 1856, Clay County Kentucky.
  • +David Clark, b. Abt. 1762, d. 1842, Clay County Kentucky.
  • Thomas Clark, b. 1764.
  • Sarah Clark, b. 1769.
  • Elizabeth Clark, b. 07 May 1773.

Elijah Clark’s documented brothers include Alston, John Jr., Lewis and Gibson. There may have been two other brothers, one named Thomas who lived along the Broad River in the 1760 and 1770’s and another named William who settled in New Bern, NC.

William of New Bern was a blood relative and was either Elijah’s brother or his first cousin -- I still don’t know which.
