I am looking for information on the ancestors of Samuel Clark, married to Margaret Hayes in Burke Co., NC in 1792 and died in Floyd Co., KY in 1826. He is also listed in the 1820 Census of Floyd Co. I believe that he may be the oldest brother, or at least a cousin, of my ggggrandfather, Thomas Clark, born 1785 in Pulaski Co., KY, moved to TN between 1800 and 1810, stayed in Warren Co., KY until about 1836 at which time he moved to Dade Co., GA, where he died in 1848. The names and birthdates of the brothers were Samuel (abt 1770), Alexander (bef 1776), James (1776), Stewart (1778), John (1780), Thomas (1785), William (1790) and Benjamin (1790). There were also two girls: Deborah (1786) and Sarah "Sallie" (abt 1780). Stewart and James were born in NC and Thomas, Deborah, WIlliam, and Benjamin were born in KY. I don't have any specifics about Samuel, Alexander, John, or Sarah, but assume it to probably be NC. John married and died in Pualski Co. I'm not sure about Alexander or Sarah. All the other children moved either to TN or AR. I have substantial amounts of information on a number of them.

To further add to the possibility that Samuel may be the oldest brother of this family is the fact that Benjamin was also married to a Hayes, Mary. Family TreeMaker lists children of this Samuel to be Alexander, Lorenzo Dow, and John W. There were also marriage licenses in Floyd County for Samuel Clark and Nancy Gibson, May 6, 1824, and Morgan Clark and Elizabeth Burchett, also in Floyd Co., on May 7, 1840.

I am willing to share other information I have collected.

Strictly as an extra question: Does anyone know about someone named Lorenzo Dow? I notice this man's name being the first and middle names of one of Samuel's children. I also have found it in the Tittle family, which is also related by marriage to the Clarks. I also found more than 100 people so named, many of them born around 1800. George Washington, I understand, but none of the history books I read said anything about anyone named Lorenzo Dow, enough so that a fair number of people would name their sons after him.

I am related to this family through Samule and Margaret Hayes Clark. What information do you have that might connect these men? I would like to know what you have on any family connection.
Let me know what you think about this.

I've been researching Alexander Clark's family line for quite some time. Several generous cousins have given me information and I've researched in the Floyd County courthouse, libraries and internet.

I have quite a collection of Clark's from this area--over 3300 people in my database.

You can check it out:

Hope this helps you find your ancestors.

About extra question: I was told that Lorenzo Dow was a famous (or infamous) evangalist of the time. I don't know how true that is, but that name crops up at least three times in my Gen. too.
