      Title: History of the Clark Family
      Author: Clark, P. P.
      Publication: Typescript, 1904.
      Text: Charles Clark was a native of North Carolina. His wife's name was Betty. They had two sons, Gregory and Isom and two daughters, Clarkie and Chloie.
      Gregory married Lurena Parker, Isom married Sarah McCarthy, Clarkie married David Leach, and Chloie married Neal Senn.
      This Clark family came from North Carolina to Hilton's Head at the close of the Revolutionary war, remained there two years, then came to Lexington District (now called Lexington County) and, so far as this writer knows, all died here.
      Charles is buried near Columbia, South Carolina.
      Gregory, or Grigg, as he [is] commonly called, was a soldier in General Green's army in the Revolutionary war, and tradition says that he was married when he came to S.C.; he was mustered out of the army at Hilton's Head on the seacoast of S.C. and liked the country there so well, he went back to N.C. and persuaded his father, Charles Clark and family to move to that place. The climate on the coast proving sickly for them, they started back to their old home in North Carolina. But when they got to Congaree Creek in Lexington County they stopped to reset and recruit, but they never went any further.
      Grigg bought him a home on a small branch of the Congaree called Turkey Creek and lived there until he died about 1835. He was about 85 year old when he died and was buried at Nazareth then known as Lybrand's church six miles south of Lexington, S.C.
      Gregory and his wife Lurena nee Parker had nine children, Sally, Rachel, Cornelius, Parker, Clarissa, Nancy, Fanny, Katy and Charity.
      Sally married John Berry,
      Cornelius married Nancy Lee,
      Parker, the writer does not know if he ever married;
      Rachel married Johnathan Taylor,
      Clarissa married a Seay,
      Nancy married Dave Shotts;
      Fanny and Katy married Arnolds and
      Charity married a Harman.
      Grigg's brother Isom had four children - - two boys and two girls, Isom and James and Christena and Agness. The writer does not know who these children married. They lived near the Congaree River at or near Columbia, S.C. This Branch of the Clark family is now extinct...
