There's a wonderful book about this whole family, From Sea to Shining Sea, by James Alexander Thom. It's historical fiction, but very heavy on the history.

Hi Wesley, Ann Rogers Clark is almost my great grandmother. I descend from Frances Eleanor, Ann’s youngest. It’s nice to meet more cousins!

According to my research and family documents, I am a direct descendant of Captain Johnathan Clark. I've lived most of my life not knowing the Clark family history. Now I am overjoyed with this new found knowledge. I will continue my research and hope to travel to these historic sites. I reside right now in southern Oklahoma.

That's fantastic! One of the great families of American history! I'll add you to the descendants page and I hope you'll sign up for updates if you haven't already!

Thank you so much. I plan to do some DNA testing as well. This is very exciting and surreal.

Hello, I am Teresa Clark, Jonathan Clark is my great x4 grandfather. I've, so far, been able to trace my Clark family back to Mary Elizabeth Lumpkin and a Jonathan Clark 1665 - unknown

He is my 5th great grandfather

I am a descendant of John Clarke, Jr., born 27 Feb 1764 in Henrico Co., VA, died 25 Jan 1839 in Washington Co., KY. He fought in the Am. Revolution and is a proven Patriot with the Daughters of the American Revolution. I have a book excerpt that says he is the "son of Captain John Clark/Clarke of the Virginia line". I would love to know for sure if he is the son of John Clark described on this page. If anyone has solid evidence of this, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

Okay, I just looked at the birth date for Jonathan Clark and it's obvious he could not be the father of my John Clarke, Jr. How disappointing!

Hi Michelle. John Clark (1729-1799) did have a son named John Clark. Son John died in 1783 not long after he was released from a British prison ship. He’s not yet a proven DAR Patriot as he never married and had no children that I am aware of.

Thank you for the great information. Jonathan is my fifth Great Grandfather.

Johnathan Clark was my 5th great grandfather, making William Clark my 5th Great uncle. I discovered this several years ago as my great grandmother was Louisa Clark who is buried in the Colfax, Washington cemetery in 1940. I have a lot of information on my Clark lineage.

I am a descendant of Drury Clark. He was born 1775 in North Carolina.

Afraid not. I'm pretty confident that General Clark never lived in NC.

I live a 3-minute walk from an historical marker at the junction of 250 and 20 just east of the Rivanna River. The river marks the easternmost boundary of Charlottesville. The marker is for George Rogers Clark who was born one mile north. (Presumably much of the family was born there. They lived there from at least 1750 to 1756.) Also, downtown Charlottesville had/has a large statue of William Clark and Lewis and Sacajawea. The statute was taken down recently on the basis that it showed the woman in a subordinate position. The statue is at least temporarily on the site of the Lewis & Clark Expedition building. The statue has her name, and only her name, on it. Historians say she is shown low to the ground in the posture of tracking for animals. I haven't driven by to see if the base of the statue remains in its original location.
I have been often told that Clark the explorer is my great-great-great uncle and my great (3x) grandmother birthed a son born to him, She is Cherokee and descendants live in VA (est virginia, sorry my doesnt ork) . Some of my descendants include Lucetta Clark. Any info is greatly appreciated!

Richard Clough Anderson is my Great Grand Uncle 6x. The Clarks ended up near soldiers retreat in kentucky on the headwaters of Bear Grass Creek (Now Hurstbourne) after the Revolution. 3 of the Clark brothers were imprisoned with Richard during the War of the Revolution. Richard taught William how to survey and it was Richards equipment used on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Another neighbor while located in Virginia at Goldmines was Patrick Henry. There is so much more to tell but so little space.
