Dublin Core

Description

Ezekiel Clark, Jr. sits for a portrait with his young daughter, Lillian.

Ezekiel Clark, Jr. was born on August 20, 1869* to John Henry and Mary (McCullough) Clark in Clarksville, Iowa. He married Emma Borts on September 12, 1888. Ezekiel served Coralville as Mayor and Councilman before marrying Maud Bane and moving to Sioux City, Iowa. Together, they had two sons: Clifford and Marion. Ezekiel died on August 31, 1937 and was returned to Coralville for burial.

Lillian Clark was born on December 8, 1890 to Ezekiel Clark, Jr. and Emma (Borts) Clark. As her mother died during birth, Lillian was raised by her maternal grandparents. She married Fred Jones, and they lived together in Iowa City with their two children, Gladys and James. Lillian died on September 8, 1968, four years after the death of her husband (Lovetinsky et al., p. 94-95).

*While Lest We Forget lists Ezekiel's birth year as 1869, a 1957 edition of the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported he was born 1866.
