Clarks in Bean Cemetery, Kirbyville, Texas

I am researching our Texas Clarks. I took a trip to Kirbyville, Texas after an interview with an elder member of that family (Ruthie McLeod, 89 years old) that our grandmother, Elizabeth Clark, was buried at Bean Cemetery there. We found the grave which has a rotting wood cross with her name barely readable. The interesting thing is there were two other wooden crosses next to her. One read Hatie/Hattie Mae Clark and the other was unreadable except for the Clark part. We know it's not Grandfather, Jimmy Clark, because he's buried at Goodhope Cemetery in Singer, Louisiana. Does anyone happen to know about this family and who Hatie/Hattie might be? Certainly she's related somehow to our Grandmother. I'm sure the other Clark is a relation as well. They had a son named John Charles Clark who married Minnie Irene Perkins in Louisiana and both of them are buried at Goodhope Cemetery as well. Minnie is the daughter of Rev. Oliver Perkins who founded Goodhope
Baptist Church in Singer (not to mention many others in the area). Oliver is buried next to Minnie at Goodhope Cemetery.

Any help would be appreciated and I am willing to correspond and share information.

I am also researching Doyle, Ashworth, Buxton and Goins (South Carolina, Texas and Louisiana)
