Mr. Clark was one of our most highly respected citizens. He was a man who bore the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He was one of the organizers of the Lake county Mutual Insurance Co., and was its first president. He served as town trustee for two terms and it was during his administration that the water works were put in. During the war Mr. Clark was appointed a Provost Marshal and did much good service for his country in attending to the duties of that important office.
Mr. Clark came to Lake County when there were few settlers and went through the many hardships incident to pioneer life. He remained on the farm until a few years ago, when he moved to Lowell where he made his home until his death.
