I am searching the for graves of Martin Armstrong and his wife, MaryTate/Tait. His property was south of Clarksville on the Cumberlandtowards Nashville from the Dunbar Cave area. Martin and JohnMontgomery are listed as co-founders of Clarksville in manypublications. Any information about the Armstrongs (particularlytheir daughter, Mary Ann Elizabeth, who married Alexander McCallabout 1795) would be appreciated. I have the portraits of Mary Ann Elizabeth and Alex painted about 1820 and will share all info andcopies of these with those interested.

CLARK, David, Private, NC Militia

CLARK (Clerk?), John, Ensign, NC Militia, and 2nd NC Continental Line


http://www.txssar.org/graves.htm

Benjamin Clark was born in January of 1758 in Dobbs County, North Carolina, and enlisted in the Militia at the age of 17. After the war he lived in Kentucky, Tennessee, the Missouri Territory and in Arkansas before moving his family to Texas in 1819 settling in Red River County where he died in February of 1838. Benjamin Clark is buried in the Clarksville Cemetery, and a new headstone was placed on his grave some years ago, but there is no SAR or DAR marker on the gravesite.

HISTORIC CLARKS OF RED RIVER COUNTY


James Clark, the founder of Clarksville, was one of the sons of Benjamin Clark, who left Tennessee with his large family and moved into the territory of Arkansas. Moving almost across the territory, he settled in Hempstead County and built his home on the old Indian mound at or near what is now the town of Washington, Arkansas. Benjamin Clark at this time was an old man. He had been a soldier in the American Revolution and had fought in the Battle of Utah (Eutaw) Springs. Mrs. Isabella H. Gordon often said that Benjamin Clark was very firm in his religious beliefs, being a Methodist minister. His sons were: Benjamin [II], John, Gilbert, Jim [James] and David. The daughters were: Mrs. Philip Duty, whose granddaughter, Mrs. Stan Smith, now lives near Lanes Chapel; Mrs. Richard Duty, Mrs. Artie (Hardy) Hunter (this is Elizabeth Jane Clark), Mrs. Tilmon Patterson and Mrs. Isaac Lyday of Fannin County.


The family stayed in Arkansas but a few years when they crossed Red River and lived first at Jonesboro, now known as Davenport, and then at the present site of Clarksville.


One of the sons, John, was never married. He became a colonel in the U. S. army and assisted in the movement of the Indians from their homes east of the Mississippi River to their new reservation north of Red River and 20 to 22 miles north of the present site of Clarksville. One peculiar characteristic of John Clark that Grandmother Gordon often spoke of was that one of his eyes was deep blue and the other brown.


The Clarks were all related to the Hopkins family of northeast Texas for the reason that James Clark married Isabella Hanks, formerly Miss Hopkins, and Nancy, the daughter of Gilbert Clark[*], married Richard M. Hopkins.


Gilbert Clark was appointed by President David G. Burnet judge of justice for this part of the Republic of Texas, and his name may be found on many of the oldest documents in the courthouse. He located his headright in Red River County. A part of it is a few miles southwest of Clarksville and the remainder at Shawnee Prairie.


James Clark, while living at Jonesboro, made a plat of the town-site in December, 1829. This plat was found among the papers of Mr. Travis Wright of Paris, and it was signed by James Clark.


It was while at Jonesboro that James Clark, the founder of Clarksville, represented this section as a part of Miller County, Arkansas, in the Arkansas Legislature -- not only that part called Miller County, Arkansas, but also the region west as far as settlements extended.


James Clark married Isabella H. Hanks, nee Hopkins, July 15, 1829, near the mouth of Mill Creek where the father, Frank Hopkins, then lived. Shortly afterwards James Clark with his wife settled at Jonesboro, now known as Davenport, where James Clark ran the ferry and where it was that they received Gen. Sam Houston and a squad of men into Texas in 1832. It was subsequent to this, as formerly stated, that James Clark moved from Jonesboro to the little skirt of timber surrounded by prairies that now embrace the present city of Clarksville.


Benjamin Clark, the father of James Clark who founded Clarksville, was born in North Carolina from Scotch descent, and when a young man settled on the Cumberland River in Tennessee. There he established a trading post called Clark's Landing. A great many people have thought this post the beginning of Clarksville, Tennessee. This is tradition, however. It seems later that the history of that city claims the name came from George Rogers Clark. There was a close relationship between George Rogers Clark and Benjamin Clark. It was said by many that George Rogers Clark, though almost of the same age as Benjamin, was the uncle of Benjamin. Congressman Champ Clark from Missouri told me in 1897 "that Benjamin Clark who established this trading post on the Cumberland River was a nephew of George Rogers Clark, though George Rogers and Benjamin were very near the same age".


The sons of Benjamin Clark [II] were David, James, Carr, Benjamin [III] and John. His daughters were: Casindra, who married William Gray; Nancy, who married Richard Hopkins; and Rebecca, who married Perry Hargraves.


Carr Clark lived in Hopkins County where he reared a large family. Benjamin moved to Ellis County where he died many years ago. His grandchildren still live in that part of the State.


Mrs. John A. Bagby and her children are the only descendants of Gilbert Clark now living in this county. The children of James Clark were: Frank, who died in the fall of 1857; Sarah Duty Clark, a daughter who died when a child, and David, who died at the age of two months. Frank H. Clark served on McCulloch's staff in the war between the United States and Mexico. Dr. Pat and Jim Clark joined the Confederate Army and served through the entire War.

Benjamin and his wife and several of their children were in Hempstead Co., AR by 1814. He was county coroner from 1818 to 1823. He built the first cotton gin in the county in 1819 on the "Old Pomp Place." He was allowed pension on his application executed October 3, 1832, while residing there.


Benjamin went to the Clarksville area in December, 1834 and was granted land "on condition of paying the government $2.50 for each labor of arable land and $1.50 for every labor of pasture land contained in the survey."

You can find the history abnd more info on the Clark family in the book:

The History of

CLARKSVILLE and

OLD RED RIVER COUNTY

by

Pat B. Clark, 1937

out of the book

Gilbert Clark, a brother of James Clark, was a carpenter and helped erect the courthouse. This building was covered with boards and the roof was put on with wooden pegs instead of nails, it being impossible at that time to secure nails. Gilbert Clark was the great-grandfather of Mrs. John A. Bagby, now living in this county.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

old community church building was erected in the 1830's just south of what is now the Catholic Cemetery, and in this building Gilbert Clark, a Presbyterian, preached. The First Presbytery of Texas, in 1842, received Gilbert Clark and ordained him as a Cumberland Presbyterian minister. It was while here that he applied to the Presbyterian organization for ordination. Gilbert Clark was the brother of James Clark, the founder of Clarksville. The following is a sketch written upon request of the Presbyterian ministers of Dallas:

THE CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIANS*

"The Rev. Milton Estill, perhaps the father of Presbyterianism in Texas, organized the Cumberland

Presbyterian Church of old Shiloh in Red River County in the year 1833. This worthy man had a long ministry in south-central Texas, and died in his adopted State April 28, 1882, at Dodge, in Walker County. The first Presbytery organized in Texas was by Milton Estill at Clarksville, Red River County.

One of the earliest preachers was Samuel W. Frazier, who came to Texas in 1838. He had a brief ministry, yet he left a lasting memory of his stirring sermons all over eastern Texas. So greatly had he impressed his hearers that old men would shed tears at the mention of his name. He died in Houston, while serving as a Chaplain of the Senate in the Third Congress of the Republic of Texas. The Rev. James Sampson preached the opening sermon of the first Red River Presbytery in Texas, December, 1842, and that grand old man, Rev. Samuel Corley, was the clerk. John McKee was the other minister present, which made the first quorum. The first act of this Presbytery was to call for candidates for the ministry, whereupon the Rev. Gilbert Clark, brother of James Clark who founded Clarksville, came forward, was examined, received, and licensed to preach.

HISTORIC CLARKS OF RED RIVER COUNTY

James Clark, the founder of Clarksville, was one of the sons of Benjamin Clark, who left Tennessee with his large family and moved into the territory of Arkansas. Moving almost across the territory, he settled in Hempstead County and built his home on the old Indian mound at or near what is now the town of Washington, Arkansas. Benjamin Clark at this time was an

old man. He had been a soldier in the American Revolution and had fought in the Battle of Utah Springs. Mrs. Isabella H. Gordon often said that Benjamin Clark was very firm in his religious beliefs, being a Methodist minister. His sons were: Benjamin [II], John, Gilbert, Jim [James] and David. The daughters were: Mrs. Philip Duty, whose granddaughter, Mrs. Stan Smith, now lives near Lanes Chapel; Mrs. Richard Duty, Mrs. Artie Hunter, Mrs. Tilmon Patterson and Mrs. Isaac Lyday of Fannin County. The family stayed in Arkansas but a few years when they crossed Red River and lived first at Jonesboro, now known as Davenport, and then at the present site of Clarksville.

Nancy, the daughter of Gilbert Clark[*], married Richard M. Hopkins.

-------------------------------

Gilbert Clark was appointed by President David G. Burnet judge of justice for this part of the Republic of Texas, and his name may be found on many of the oldest documents in the courthouse. He located his headright in Red River County. A part of it is a few miles southwest of Clarksville and the remainder at Shawnee Prairie.

----------------------------------------------------------------

The sons of Benjamin Clark [II] were David, James, Carr, Benjamin [III] and John. His daughters were: Casindra, who married William Gray; Nancy, who married Richard Hopkins; and Rebecca, who married Perry Hargraves.

Carr Clark lived in Hopkins County where he reared a large family. Benjamin moved to Ellis County where he died many years ago. His grandchildren still live in that part of the State.

Mrs. John A. Bagby and her children are the only descendants of Gilbert Clark now living in this county

==================================

"Rev. Samuel Corley came to Clarksville from Rutherford County, Tennessee, in 1840 to be the first pastor of the Shiloh and adjacent churches. He came up Red River by boat, landed at old Roland on Red River, northeast of Clarksville, thence to the home of the Rev. James Sampson.
