Ancestors

These are the cemetery monuments of my grandfather’s either grandparents or great grandparents, Elizabeth and William Clark. They are buried behind an old church in Perrineville, NJ. William fought in the War of 1812. Elizabeth’s stone has weathered much better than William’s.

[We have a copy of a newspaper clipping somewhere of the obituary for the aforementioned William Clark.  As I recall, he enlisted underage for the war of 1812, served with distinction, and was demonstrably proud of it for the rest of his (for then) long life.  — John]
