George W Clark
Posted by: Melba Clark (ID *****2973) Date: August 14, 2002 at 07:30:08

I am looking for any information on George W Clark and his family.

According to the 1900 Bartow Co., GA census, George was 53, born in Dec 1846. George is listed on other censuses:
1870 -- 25;
1880 -- 32 b SC/NC/NC;
1910 -- 64 b SC/NC/NC.

We have recently learned that George's mother's maiden name was Mary Sorter. "Tasey" was her nickname. Mary was listed on two censuses:
1] Tasey 54 b SC in 1870 Pickens Co., GA, with her husband, James Clark and three children, James P, Green and Lemuel;
2] Tasy 84 b May 1816 NC/NC/NC in 1900 Bartow Co., GA, with her son, George and his family.

George married, first, Sophia Delana Yancey, 21 Jan 1866 in Pickens Co., GA. She was born about 1848-49 in GA, the daughter of Levi Yancey and Anna Rice.

The children of George W Clark and his first wife, Delana were:

1] Sarah F born about 1866-67 in GA,

2] Mary Matilda born about 1868-69 in GA,

3] Levi W born 5 April 1870 in GA, died 5 Sept 1919, Floyd Co., GA. [My husband's grandfather]

4] Micka [or Michael] born sometime before his father's second marriage about 1877-78.

Micka and his siblings, were listed as "children of Delana Clark, formerly Delana Yancey, deceased daughter of Levi Yancey," in Levi's will dated 31 Mar 1885.

George W Clark's second wife was named Mary A E [maiden surname unknown]. According to the censuses, George and Mary married about 1877-78. [They were listed as "married 23 years" on the 1900 census and "32 years" on the 1910 census (both in Bartow Co., GA).]

The children of George W and his second wife, Mary were:

1] James W, [He was listed with his father, in 1900, as born "Nov 1878 GA." He was not listed on the 1880 census with his father and his age was listed as 30 and 40 on the 1910 & 1920 censuses.] {A listing on the GA Death Index for James W Clark, who died 10 Dec 1962, in Gordon Co., GA at the age of 85 years, may be him. [Cert. #31482]}

2] Eula B born "May 1882 GA" [from 1900 census]. Eula was not listed with her parents in 1910, but apparently was still living since "2 children, 2 living" were listed for her mother.

Any information on this family would be appreciated. George W was the great-grandfatherfather of my husband. I would like to contact any descendants of this family.
