This is a copy of a posting in the Clark GenForum in response to a posting of copy of Joseph Clark's Will by Jeff Clark, Message #5474 (Sept. 29, 1999). Jeff, Thank you for printing the Will of Joseph Clark. Joseph Clark is also my 3gr-grandfather, but through James C. Clark and his son, Presley Henderson Clark. My question is: What is the source of information for your saying that the "C" in James C. Clark stands for Cansler? I have been told that by a descendant of Harriet Clark Brasher, but she could not remember where she got the information. I would, therefore, love to know the source of your information. I do know that Lemuel is buried in Christian County, KY and I have seen Canslers buried close to him. I was also told that a sister of Joseph's wife, Mary Golden, married a Cansler, so Mary named her son, James, after her bother-in-law, a Cansler. But, I have no written source. Any help would be much appreciated.
