Would like to exchange information on the above families. In 1870, David R. Clark was living in Houston with his wife, one child, and her parents. David married Nancy Artemissia Clark after her first husband, James P. Coleman, died in Virginia during the Civil War. Coleman and N.A. Clark were married in Itawamba County and later moved to Chickasaw County. They had a son, Thomas Coleman, who married Mary Bray and they later moved to Pontotoc County.
David R. Clark and Nancy Artemissia had a daughter, Emma Dell Evans, who married in 1899 William W. McFall. Emma died in Calhoun County in 1955 and is buried in the Antioch Cemetery, near Bruce. Her obit states that she was survived by a half brother, Jack Evans, of Texas.
In 1880, David and Nancy Artemissia are in Grayson County, Texas with a bunch of Clemments, who are listed as in-laws of David. Emma Dell Evans was living with her half brother, Thomas and his wife, Mary Bray Coleman in Chickasaw County.
In 1900, I find David R. Evans still in Grayson County, Texas with a wife, Mary E. and two children. The oldest child, Jerry N (H?) is 19 y/o, which would mean that Nancy Artemissia was out of the picture soon after the 1880 census was taken. The second son was Julius L, 13 y/o. Mary E. stated that she had had 5 children and only 2 were still alive. There was a Samantha T. Denton, mother-in-law, b. 1835 in TN, mother-in-law, living in this house.
My question--does anyone know anything about this family? It appears that Nancy Artemissia left Emma Dell in Mississippi with relatives and moved to Grayson County, Texas with David. Clark researchers have given Nancy's place of death as Calhoun County. Did she move back to Mississippi after 1880? Did she die in Texas? Did she divorce in Texas?
