Today in Family History - 21 Dec

My 3rd great-grandfather Jack D. Clarke (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1892 presumably in Walker County, Texas [1]. He was buried some 20 steps from the grave of Sam Houston at Oakwood Cemetery (Section 1) in Huntsville, Walker, Texas [2]. His original marker was a small stone with only "J.D. Clark" on it. In 2008, I had an additional marker placed at his grave indicating his birth and death dates.
