Happy 279th Birthday, Grandfather Clark!

279 years ago, 29 January 1742, in Medfield, Massachusetts, my 5th Great-Grandfather, Stephen Clark was born. His father was Solomon Clark. In 1763, in Wrentham, Massachusetts, he married Miriam Thayer, the daughter of Josiah Thayer. The couple made their home and raised their family in Wrentham.

Five children have been recorded from this marriage: Esther (1771) [my 4 times great grandmother], Jemima, Onesimus [love the name!], Mary (1772), and Julietta (1787).

Esther Clark married Simeon Botsford.

Grandfather Clark passed away on 20 June 1809. Grandmother Clark passed away 13 years later on 27 August 1824. Both have been buried in the West Wrentham Cemetery in Wrentham.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
