Frank Wilson married Tempy Clark, dau of John Wesley Clark and Samantha Jane Martin. Tempy's first husband was John Roberts who was murdered. They had one daughter, Mary Anase Clark. Tempy then married Frank Wilson and had three sons and one daughter. Frank died Memphis (AR? or TN?) of tuberculosis and Tempy died of the same thing at Dora, AR. She gave her baby daughter, Jessie Wilson, to a family to raise before she died. Jessie md twice. She had one surviving son. I am looking for info regarding Frank and Tempy (Clark) Wilson, their children and Tempy's parents. Tempy lived mostly in Arkansas. Her father, John Wesley Clark, was an outlaw in eastern Oklahoma. He died 1898-1900, of Tuberculosis? Samantha Jane (Martin) Clark was his second wife but he could have been still married when he married Samantha in Johnson Co, AR and was in Fayetteville, Washington Co, AR when Tempy was born. After that they moved around. John Wesley Clark and Samantha's youngest son, James Edgar Clark was born in 1892 Conway Co, AR. He moved around too and changed his name to James Edward Clark on a delayed birth certificate. His older brother John Robert (or Robert John) Clark his name after having to quickly leave Dutton, Madison Co, AR and moved to McGeeHee, AR. He died Wichita, KS where two sons lived. Their sister Eliza Jane Clark changed her name to Eliza Ann. She md first a Sheppard and md2 a Beard in Arkansas connected with the Fayetteville Beard's. Eliza had no children. She moved to Orange Co, CA where she died. Some of the William 'Bill' Martin children, siblings of Samantha Jane Martin, married outlaws and lived western Arkansas. Clark outlaws of Oklahoma could be related. We don't know Tempy's John Wesley Clark's parents or siblings.
