CLARK SCHOOL
 
Clark School was named for the family of Calvin Clark, born in Washinton County,
PA. on August 23, 1802. Calvin moved with his parents and five siblings to
southern Richland County, Ohio when he was about 13 years of age.
 
Calvin lived on the family farm until he reached the age of about 20 years. He and
one of his brothers began a brickmaking business and by the age of 27, Calvin
bought property in what was then Sharon Twp. - now Section 16, in Jackson Twp.
The property was located on either side of Route 39, just north of the intersection
with Rock Road.
 
Calvin married Mary Fulton on October, 1824 and they were the parents of
five daughters and two sons. Samuel Clark, Calvin and Mary's oldest son, was
born in October, 1825 and spent his early days on the family farm until he
married Polly Jane King. Samuel and Polly's farm (shown on the 1873 map - above)
was located on the west side of Rock Road, south of the intersection with Route 39.
 
 
 
Dorothy Mae Shade / Will, the oldest daughter of Emery Willis &
Maude Jane Peterman / Shade, attended the Clark School and has kindly
shared some of her class memorabilia and family history.
