    NOTE FROM: Heinrich Burkho DATED fEBRUARY 2011
    The Mormon Family History Library in Salt Lake City has a Family Group Record for James and Jane Paine Clark and their 12 children, including Robert Paine Clark born about 1802 and Nancy Clark born about 1808, both in Stahlstown, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. The Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Cook Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania contains the graves of Robert P. Clark (May 4, 1802 to July 22, 1879) and Sarah Clark (December 28, 1845, age 38 years, 9 months, and 18 days). By my calculation, the gravestone inscription for Sarah translates to a March 10, 1807 birthdate. (Note: This information came from a cemetery gravestone listing in the Ligonier Library, and I did not confirm its accuracy in the field.) This information suggests that the "Sarah Clark" buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery was the wife of the "Robert Paine Clark" listed in the Family Group Record. According to your information for IDs: 149 and 150, the Greenwood Cemetery, Belmont County, Ohio contains gravestones for Jonathan (April 10, 1806 to September 16, 1881) and Nancy Agnes Clark Gary (June 15, 1807 to September 15, 1878). Nancy's birthdate suggests that the "Nancy Agnes Clark" buried in the Greenwood Cemetery was the sister of the "Robert Paine Clark" listed in the Family Group Record. Now, your information for IDs: 178 and 195 states that "Sarah Gary" and "Robert Clark" were husband and wife, and your information for IDs: 149 and 150 states that "Jonathan Gary" and "Nancy Agnes Clark" were husband and wife. I conclude from all of this that the "Sarah Clark" buried with "Robert P. Clark" in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery is the "Sarah Gary" who was the sister of "Jonathan Gary" who, in turn, was the husband of "Nancy Agnes Clark", who, in turn, was the sister of "Robert P. Clark".
