Clark of New Bedford, Mass. and Brooklyn, New York

Alonzo P. Clark was born in New Bedford about 1849, and his brother James H. Clark was born there in about 1853. In 1870, both were living in Brooklyn with their mother, Rachel Mosher Clark.

There was an Alonzo P. Clarke in Brooklyn in the 1880s, a gun salesman of some kind. He was in the 1880 census as A.P. Clarke, with wife Jennie — born in Canada — and son A.P. Jr., born in Massachusetts. This looks like a match, but I’ll have to keep looking.

It’s possible that James went to Montana. More on that later.
