My name is David Williams Morgan.Â I’m seventy three years old and haveÂ devotedÂ most of my retired years to researching my family’s history.Â But that’s another story!
ThisÂ portrait photo is of my great grandfather,Â Reverend John Henry Clark, and my father, Donald Clark Morgan who wasÂ about ten years old at the time.Â The photo was takenÂ ca. 1915, in Northville, New York.Â
John Henry Clark was a Methodist minister who graduated with a degree in TheologyÂ from Drew Theological Seminary in Madison, NJ, on May 21, 1874.Â HeÂ remained in theÂ ministry until he retired in 1922 after forty-seven yearsÂ of service.Â He married Florence Alvina Williams in the Village of Bondville, town of Winhall, Vermont on June 2, 1874.Â Their second daughter, Mable Wilhelmina Clark,Â bornÂ October 15, 1880 in Seward Center, Schoharie Co. New York, was my grandmother.Â She married James Franklin Morgan, my grandfather. Â Donald Clark Morgan,Â born February 14, 1905, was their first child.
