Not my family line, just sharing.

"WILLIAM H. CLARK, General Manager and Superintendent of the famous WOLCOTT FARM, is a native of Liverpool, England, born May 4, 1844, and is a son of WILLIAM D. and ADELIA (SOULS) CLARK. When he was three years of age, his parents came to America and settled in Otsego, County, New York. While in the Empire State, he received his education, which is much beyond that of the average farmer. At the age of sixteen, MR. CLARK enlisted as a drummer-boy in Company H, Seventy-sixth Volunteers of New York. After the enrollment of the company, he became a regular private, and was in nineteen of the most severe engagements that occurred during the war. He re-enlisted February, 1864, served until the close of the struggle, and was discharged at Ball's Cross Roads, Virginia, July 3, 1865; he was Color Bearer from the time of the Gettyburg battle, in 1863, until February 4, 1864. In the fall of 1865, he came to Montgomery County, Indiana, and worked on a farm, and there he remained two years and then returned to New York and remained one year, and in the meantime was united in marriage to MISS ELLEN HILL, of Cherry Valley, New York. To this union have been born three children, viz.: LILLIE E., born July 29, 1874, and died October 23, 1875; MINNIE A., born June 30, 1876, died December 12, 1876, and ROBERT W. In 1869, he came to West Point Township and rented a farm, but the next year came to Wolcott and became General Manager for HON. ANSON WOLCOTT. This position MR. CLARK still retains; he is a Republican, a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a Sovereign of the Red Star, and member of the Christian Church."
