    John K. Stark Rev Captain (1833 - ) who was born in central New York in October, 1833, came to
    Michigan with his parents in 1848 and assisted in clearing and developing the home farm, now known as the Robert Bielby property. In the winter seasons he cut and hauled logs and in the summer months engaged in the activity of tilling the fields and caring for his crops. He married Eliza J. Cushing, a daughter of Otis and Clarissa Cushing, in the year 1855, and in 1857 removed to Missouri, but in 1859 returned to Michigan. In June 1861, he enlisted for service in the Civil war as a member of the Second Michigan Cavalry and a year later received an honorable discharge on account of disability. In 1869 he joined the Michigan Conference of the Methodist Episcopal church and has become one of the most prominent church builders of that denomination. His first charge was the Paw Paw church, and since that time he has served various churches, both on the country circuit and in large cities, becoming one of the strong divines representing Methodism in this state. His wife died in 1884. Six children were born unto them, three sons and three daughters, all of whom are now living with the exception of the youngest, who died in 1902. Rev. Stark was again married in 1895. He is now chaplain in the Soldiers' Home at Grand Rapids, Michigan.
