    by Helen Ruth Pierce Galloway:
    Great Great G randfather David Clark-Clarke
    David is on the 1799 Shelby Tax List adjacent to a Widow Elizabeth
    Clark, and thus helped his widowed mother with her family according to
    Eleanor's notes.
    In Deed Book No. 5 in Henrico County an Iriden ture, dated November 23,
    1799, it is clearly stated that DAVID Clarke was of Kentucky and a son of
    John Clarke.
    "This Indenture made the twenty third day of November in one thousand
    seven hundred and ninety nine between John Mille r of
    the county of Henrico and Commonwealth of Virginia, Attorney for Obadiah
    Clarke, Benjamin Clarke, Charles Clarke.- Josiah Clarke, Zachariah
    Clarke, William Bridgewater and Maryann his wife, William Clarke and
    DAVID CLARK of t he state of Kentucky who are the HEIRS of John Clarke
    State of Kentucky (Shel by County) of the one part and John Whites (?) of
    the county of Henrico .... do sell a parcel of land ..... an estimated
    140 acres of land, being the same land wheron the John Clarke Family
    lived, and about 6 or 7 miles from the ci ty of Richmond, is conveyed to
    John Whites and his heirs forever by John Mill er, Attorney for (listed
    above) for the sum of 150 pounds."
    An Indenture in Shelby County, Kentucky, dated August 1, 1813, states
    that William and Marian Bridgewater, in consideration of ten hundred
    dollars, sold A David Clark 101 acres of land in Shelby County plus three
    negroes, a boy named Stephney, a w oman named May, and a mulatto girl
    named Charlotte. also included were six head of horses, five oxen,
    eleven cow cattle, thirteen head of sheep, forty h ead of hogs and an ox
    wagon, eight beds and all the other farming equipment a nd household and
    kitchen furniture and farming utensils now on the farm on wh ich the said
    Bridgewater resides and with the confidence that David Clarke an d his
    heirs will peaceably permit and suffer the said Marian wife of said
    W illiam ... to have and enjoy all and every rents and profits of the said
    prem ises and of every part and parcel thereof and the use and benefit of
    the said slaves etc. , with David guaranteed the property on her death.
    (I now have p roof that Marian Bridgewater was Marian (Mary Ann) Clarke,
    sister to David.) No land description except that it is part of an
    entry in the name of Humph rey Marshall and adjouung the land on which he,
    Bridgewater, then resided.)
    David married Mary Am (Polly) Conn Kay 11, 1817, in the Cane & Back Run
    Churc h area, now King's Church, in Bullitt County, Kentucky. She was the
    daughter of Thomas and Mary Am Conley Conn. They moved to Missouri ca
    1830 according t o census records and settled near Madisonville in Ralls
    County, later moving to the nearby Salem Community.
    I found another Indenture dated October 9, 1830 , between David Clarke and
    Polly, wife, of the county of Shelby ... sells to David Ruble for the
    consideration of $225. The land description states that it is on Beech
    Creek consisting of 76 acres. Beech Creek is near the Salem C hurch in
    Shelby County. They moved to Missouri ca 1830 according to census re cords
    and settled near Madisonville, Missouri later moving to the Salem
    Com munity in Ralls County. He acquired 80 acres of land in Ralls on June
    25, 182 9, according to records at the State Archives in Jefferson City.
    Not only was Grandfather David a farmer, but he also plied the trades of
    bricklaying and c arpentry according to my mother's recollections. She
    said he worked in Hanni bal, Missouri during the week and came home on
    weekends.
    Like most Clark fam ilies, they were Baptists, and members at Salem
    Baptist Church in Ralls Count y; in the book, Salt River Association, by
    Patrick, pp 76 and 77, a short sup plement was written in conjunction with
    the his
