Clark, Warren D., Addison, was born in Addison, Addison county, Vt., on August 27,1836. He was educated in the common schools of Addison, and after finishing his education he engaged in farming at his home. On July 16, 1862, he enlisted in Company B, Eleventh Vermont Regiment, and afterwards was in Battery B, First Artillery, and at Washington was assigned to guard duty. He went to the front under General Grant, and was at Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Stroudsburg, Winchester, Cedar Creek, and was with the Army of the Potomac at the surrender of Lee. He served until the close of the war; was mustered out at Bailey’s Cross Roads in June, 1865, but soon after returned to civil life and located in his present home, and engaged in farming and stock raising. He has never desired public office. He was married on July 4, 1861, to Huldah Barber, who was a daughter of Joseph S. Barber, who was a well-known resident of Addison. They have a family of three children — Bertha S., who married Arthur G. Putnam; Martha B., and Howard W., who are at home. Mr. Clark now occupies the old home, which he repaired in 1877. His parents were Asahel and Polly (Warren) Clark, who were natives of Connecticut. Asahel came at an early day with his father to Addison county. Asahel settled on the place (now the home of his son), where he spent the latter part of his life. He died on April 14, 1859, leaving a family of eight children, four of whom are now living.
