According to the various censuses, James W. CLARK[E] and his parents were born in England. He was born in May 1861/2, migrated in 1870, and was naturalized. Ancestry trees say that he was son of William CLARK[E] & Mary GREENWOOD. The last address I found for him, 1940 census, was Gevinn [Gwinn?] St., Medina, Orleans Co., NY. He was of Orleans County, NY, by 1905, perhaps by 1902, as Joseph was born in New York. He was of Pierre, Hughes Co., SD in 1900, and he must have been there by 1894, when Seth was born.

FindaGrave shows them in Boxwood Cem., Medina, Orleans Co., NY, CLARK, James W. (23 May 1859 [?]- 6 Apr. 1941) & Edna A. [GOODMAN, dau/o Wm. GOODMAN & Nancy J{ane} WILSON] (20 Oct. 1872 [?] - 14 June 1943).

James W. CLARK m. 1892/3 [m. 7 y. in 1900, 17 in 1910] Edna A. GOODMAN, b. Oct. 1871, MO, father b. Missouri, Iowa, or West Virginia; mother b. Iowa or Indiana, per censuses. Birth months in the family are from the 1900 census.


Seth Sanford CLARK (13 May 1894, Pierre, Hughes, SD [WW I registration] - 1961) m. ca. 1918, Celia Caroline FLECHSENHAAR (16 Sep. 1894, Niagara Co., NY - 10 Feb. 1997, Erie Co., NY [SSDI]).
Leslie W., b. 17 Nov. 1895, Pierre, SD., m. Marian.
James P., (Oct. 1897, SD - 29 Sep. 1918 [Ancestry, Bougard-Bowsher Clan])
Joseph, b. 1902, NY.

Seth had Dorothy Helen (ca. 1920, NY - 2007) & Kenneth Sanford (1923, NY - 21 May 2001).

Niagara Falls, 1930, CLARK, Leslie W., 33, b. SD.
B. NY: Marian A., 30; Daphne F., 8; Marian J., 5.

Hackberry, Polk, NE, 1880, STALMAKER, Santford, 38, he & parents b. WV.
Wf. Jane, 35, IN KY KY; daughters b. NE: Mabel, 3, & Sissie, born in May.
Stepdaughters GOODMAN, Dellie, 10; Edna, 9, they & their father b. Missouri.
Brother Draper STALMAKER, 27, & sis, Jennie, 27.

Your query should probably be in Hughes instead of Clark County, SD.
