Notes
a. Note:   NI14380
Note:   James S. Clark was born in Riga, Monroe Co., New York, in 1831. His father, Lucius B. Clark died when he was twelve, and at age fifteen he went to Waukesha Co., Wisconsin where he taught school. The 1850 census shows him residing in that county with his sister, Clarissa, and her husband, Archibald Anderson. In 1851 he returned to New York, and in that year he married Evaline Hallett, who lived next door to his family in Monroe County [fn. 1]. Ogden Church records state that James Clark was baptized as an adult in 1853 and that he left in April, 1856, for Delafield, Wisc. Apparently the couple soon moved to to Waupun; the obituary of James S. Clark in the "Waupun Leader" of November 3, 1909 states he located in Waupun in 1856. There he taught and farmed. He spent his active adult life in Dodge County near Waupun and served as Dodge County Superintendent of Schools, Supervisor (1875-1879), and Chairman of the Board of Supervisors (1878). In the 1873 plat map of the County his farm is shown in the south of Chester Township (south of Waupun), and the couple's two daughters who died in 1870 are buried just south of the farm. Sometime after the 1880 census the couple moved to Trenton just west of Waupun. Evaline died in December, 1900, and in October of the next year James sold the farm [fn 3] and moved to Fort Madison where he lived with his daughter and son-in-law. He died at their home in 1909. Nothing has been found indicating active service in the Civil War. The Dodge County courthouse burned in 1878, and there are few records before that date. [fn 1] 1850 Census, Monroe Co., Town of Riga, Visitations 271 and 272. [fn 2] N.Y. Dar Volumes, Vol 115, p. 87 and 111] [fn 3].

Obituary in "Waupun Leader" of Wednesday, Nov 3, 1909: James S. Clark, some years ago the most generally known resident of the town of Chester, died Tuesday, Oct. 26, at Fort Madison, Iowa, age 78 years, 10 months and 11 days. He was a native of New York state, coming to Wisconsin and locating in Waupun in 1856. He taught for a time in the village schools, and then settled on a farm in the town of Chester of which town he was an honored citizen for many years. Some few years ago he went to live with his daughter at Fort Madison where he died. He held many local offices always with honor to himself and profit to the community he represented. He served as superintendent of schools, town clerk, assessor and supervisor, and was for several years chairman of the board of supervisors of Dodge county. His remains were brought here last Thursday and laid to rest in the family lot in Burnett Union Cemetery. Few men during the years of his useful activity had more friends than James S. Clark. His long tenure of life, covering the time that three generations have been born and came to age, his real usefulness as a citizen and standing as a man are in a measure unknown or forgotten save by his old-time associates, who today recalling the active, honest and helpful friend of other days, pay to his memory the tribute of sincere praise.
