Date:  11/10/2002 6:19:40 PM Eastern Standard Time
From: (Thomas C Currier)

Joyce, here is my Cemetery listing submission for my Gr-Gr-Gr Grandparents, Elias Horton Clark & Marietta Close, buried in Riverside Cemetery, Deerfield Township, Pa. :
From History of Tioga County - 1897 :

"Elias H. Clark, youngest son of Eleazer and Rosamond (Salisbury) Clark, was born on the old homestead in Deerfield Township, Tioga County, April 28, 1836, and obtained his education in the common schools and Union Academy.  He has spent his entire life upon the old homestead, which he inherited from his father.  He has been an extensive tobacco grower since 1882, and is a breeder of Holstein cattle, and has been a breeder of Hambletonian and
Percheron horses.  Mr. Clark was married May 11, 1862, to Marietta Close, a daughter of David and Maria (Sweet) Close, of Westfield, Tioga county.  Six children have blessed this union, viz:  Byron L., Cecil A., Rae E., Rosamond M., Clare E. and Horton E.  In politics, Mr. Clark is a Republican, is connected with the E.A.U., and is recognized as a progressive and enterprising farmer."

(Elias Horton Clark died at the home of his son, Clare E. Clark, in Coudersport, Pa. on his 85th birthday, April 28, 1921.)
