Featured Gravestone – Paul Clark

255Section:  Dutch Reformed

Material:  White marble

A simple stone in relatively good condition with no major chipping or breakage.  Stone is darkened, but inscription is very legible.  Some minor lichen patches.

Inscription:  In memory of Paul Clark who departed this life March 28th, 1831, aged 66 Years.

Paul Clark was the owner of a tavern at what is now the intersection of Madison Avenue and Lark Street (once called Clark’s Corner).  He was also well known for his interest in horticulture.  With the demolition of the last remnants of the Clark Tavern in recent months, Paul Clark has been the subject of several blogs:
