Joshua Clark

Winterset Madisonian - May 1915

Joshua C. Clark died at his home on South Fourth street on last Sunday morning from injuries received in an auto accident on the evening of the 11th. While the seriousness of his injuries was realized from the first, his condition a week ago was much improved. Alarming symptoms caused by internal injuries developed later and on Friday absent members of his family were summoned.

He was one of the very earliest settlers of this county, his parents, Caleb and Ruth Clark being one of the three first families who immigrated here in 1846. He was born in this county March 20, 1850, and his entire life was spent in and near Winterset.

He was married May 17, 1873, to Cynthia Ann Thornburg, who preceded him in death on July 11, 1912. Surviving members of the family are five sons, Everett, Claude, Audley, Walter, and Chas, and one daughter, Mrs. Ruth Jordan. Of his parental family there remains four brothers: Rufus, Joel N., Denny and Frank, and four sisters, Mrs. Charlotte Gordon, Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, Mrs. Mary Tusha and Mrs. Martha Ballard. Mrs. Tusha resides at Elida, N. M., and Denny at Mitchell, S. D., the others in this county.

Funeral services conducted by Rev. L. F. Davis were held at the Church of Christ on Tuesday afternoon and burial in the Winterset cemetery. the membership of the Knights of Pythias order attended in a body and at the grave read the last tribute of respect to a departed brother.
