I am trying to find more of William Hall (Holly) Clark's son Joseph who may have died in 1900. He was married to Willie Catherine Aven.


Transcription of text from From "History of Parker County" by Parker County Historical Commission 1980

Robert Alexander Clark Family Robert Alexander (Elic) Clark was the son of James C. Clark who was born in Glasgow, Scotland and who came to the United States in 1807 and was a school teacher in the early days of VanZandt County, Texas. Elic and his family and his brother James C. Clark and family came from Van Zandt county to Parker County about 1861. James C. settled on Ash Creek near old Sebathny, which was about five miles southeast of Springtown. He bought land and raised his family there. Robert (Elic) bought land south of Springtown near what is now known as the Lynch place.He was first married to a woman named Mary Edwards and they had several children. Later, after her death he married Anne Selman and the also had several children. They remained in Springtown vicinity and many descendants still live in the surrounding area. The known children of these marriages are: W.
