Seeking information on the decendents of Gabriel Clark b.12 Oct 1770 in Lancaster PA, his brother Thomas b. 22 Aug 1765 in Lancaster PA and his sister Mary Clark Hutchinson b. 10 Jun 1766 in Lancaster PA.
At some point between 1800 and 1820 Gabriel along with his brother Thomas and sister Mary moved from Drumore Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Genessee County, New York, probably enticed by ballyhoo of the Holland Company selling rich fertile land at very low prices. Gabriel is found in Parma, Genessee County, New York in the 1820 and 1830 census. In 1821 Parma was included into Monroe County when that county was formed from a part of Genessee County. Some of these decendents are buried in Parma Corners Cemetery, Parma, Monroe County, New York.. It should also be noted that in 1850 there were four other unrelated Clark families in the Parma area; one each from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey and Ireland. Gabriel died betwen 1830 and 1840. It is possible that Gabriel died from cholera as there was an epidemic in 1832 in the Monroe County area. Gabriel's son John Scott Clark b. 1800 in Pa died 17 Aug 1831 and is buried in Castle Cemetery, Parma.
Any information would be greatly appreciated...Thanks
