CLARK - My brother, Lee Clark, and sister,
Clarica Clark, and myself were raised by
one Buck Clark in Columbus, Muscogee county,
Ga. My brother and sister were sold to an M.
E. (South) preacher by the name of Henry
Ware. They were taken from Chambers
county, Ala., by said Ware to Texas some-
where about the year 1847. I have never heard
from them since then. If anyone can give me
any information concerning them it will be
thankfully received by their brother, Louis
Clark, colored, Oak Lodge, Choctaw Nation,
