Jacob B. and Ida M. Clark - Freedom, PA
Posted by: Paul Frost (ID *****5478) Date: July 03, 2009 at 06:20:33
  of 1473

I am looking for information on Jacob Bentley Clark and his wife, Ida M. Clark (her name may have been Ida May Duncan).

Jacob B. Clark was born 8 March 1846 in West Virginia (likely in Wheeling), son of William Clark and Ruth Bentley. Jacob last appears with his family in Pease Twp., Belmont County, OH in the 1870 Census. He is found in subsequent censuses as follows:

1880 US Census, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA

J. Bentley Clark, 34, b. OH, pilot, parents b. VA, WV
Ida M. Clark, 22, b. OH, parents b. OH
Earl Clark, 2, b. OH, parents b. OH
Harry Clark, 3/12 b. PA, parents b. OH

1900 US Census, Freedom Borough, Beaver County, PA

Jacob B. Clark b. Mar 1846 VA, parents b. VA, river pilot
Ida M. Clark, b. Nov 1858 OH, parents b. OH, mother of 5 (all alive at time of census)
Earl Y. Clark, b. Aug 1878 OH, bookkeeper
Fred B. Clark, b. Sept 1883 PA
Will Edwin Clark, b. Dec 1885 PA
Harold C. Clark, b. Sept 1893 PA

Jacob and Ida were married 22 years (ca 1878)

1910 US Census, Freedom Borough, Beaver County, PA

Jacob B. Clark, 64 b. WV, parents b. WV, river pilot
Ida M. Clark, 51 b. OH, parents b. OH parents b. OH
Harold C. Clark, 16, b. PA, parents b. WV, OH


1920 US Census, Freedom Borough. Ward 2, Beaver County, PA

Jacob B. Clark, age 71, b. WV, parents b. WV, occupation: none
Ida M. Clark, age 61, b. OH, parents b. OH
Harold C. Clark, age 26, b. PA, parents b. WV, OH, clerk in steel mill.

I have not confirmed the following but information I have indicates Jacob B. Clark died in New Brighton, PA on 12/30/1926 and Ida M. Clark died in Freedom, PA on 7/28/1920.

Thanks

Paul
