J. A. Clark    

J. A. CLARK, Corry, was born April 16, 1832, in South Ridge, near Conneaut, Ashtabula Co., Ohio, son of Abner Bradley Clark and Elvira Clark; the latter a native of Ohio, is a resident of Ashtabula, aged seventy-five, and the former died aged fifty-five, August 22, 1860. They were the parents of three boys and four girls. Two of the former and three of the latter are living. One son, a prominent merchant in Corry, died December 15, 1879. Our subject remained on his native place until eighteen years of age, when he removed to Conneautville, Penn., and learned to make the wood-work of carriages, with his father, who was an extensive manufacturer in Conneaut. He followed his trade until he located in Corry, Penn., in 1877, since which time he has engaged in mercantile pursuits. He served as Tax Collector in Conneautville one year, where he married, December 30, 1858, Maggie Rupert, born in Conneautville, Penn., May 24, 1839. Two children have blessed this union— Edwin R., engaged in the fruit business in Canada, and Lottie Clark, sixteen years old and at home.
