Clark, Sarah Hicks

Wife of Francis Clark
Married Dec. 11, 1798
Aged 29 yrs. 8 mos. & 20 days
Four or five graves in this same area marked with field stones. No names or dates. On one stone next to Sarah Hicks Clark a “C” was readable; nothing more.
Could this be a child of Sarah Hicks Clark and Francis Clark Jr. or could it be the grave site of Francis Clark Jr?
The grave of Sarah Hicks Clark is dominated by a granite slab which covers the entire grave. Over the years the slab has broken, however, all the words can still be read!
