CLARK, Amos - OLD SETTLER FOUND DEAD; Amos Clark succumbs during the abscence of his family.: News was brought to town Monday evening that Amos Clark, a pioneer settler of this valley, had been found dead by his wife about five o'clock in the afternoon upon her return from a visit to a neighbor. Mister Clark had been apparently in good health and even on the day he was stricken he had hauled a load of grapes to town and had superintended his farming operations as usual. He had even eaten his lunch as the dishes on the table indicated. The members of the family were all absent and the grape-pickers did not notice whether or not he left the house in the afternoon but he was lying on his bed as if resting when his wife returned home. He had been dead only a few hours as his body was not yet cold. Dr. W.S. Taylor performed an autopsy on Tuesday and found death to be the result of a diseased pancreas which he had evidentally been afflicted for several months but, which had given him but little inconvenience as he had not mentioned feeling unwell to his family. The funeral took place on Thursday. Rev. Jas. B. Stone holding services at the residence. The internment took place in the Masonic cemetary and a large number of friends and neighbors followed the remains to their last resting place. The deceased was a native of New York and was 52 years, 8 months and 14 days old at the time of his death. He leaves a widow, two sons and three daughters, besides three brothers and three sisters. Mr. Clark was one of the pioneers of the State, crossing the plains in the early fifties. He located first at Petaluma remaining there until 1868, when he settled in this valley, engaging in farming and stock raising. For many years past he had made his home on the Arroyo Mocho about three miles and a half southeast of town. Livermore Herald of September 19, 1903

CLARK, Amos: DEATH OF AMOS CLARK; Amos Clark, one of the earliest of the early comers to this valley, was found Monday afternoon lying dead on a bed at his home on the Arroyo Mocho, about three miles southeast of town. Mr. Clark had not previously complained of feeling unwell, and during the fore noon had hauled a load of grapes to Livermore. His wife and other members of the family were absent, but, nevertheless, he returned home to eat his noonday meal and was not seen later until the return of his wife, about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when she found him laying dead on a bed, but not yet hardly cold. Mr. Clark came to California in the early '50's and went to petaluma, where he resided until 1868, when he came to this valley, which has since been his home, and during that time has been engaged in farming and stock raising. He was a native of St. Lawrence County, New York, and aged 52 years, 8 months and 14 days. Besides a widow, he leaves two sons, and three daughters, Vernon A. Clark, Leo C. Clark, Mrs. Mabel Newman, Miss Stella Clark and Miss Hazel Clark, and three brothers and three sisters, Alfred, Alpha and Henry C. Clark, and Mrs. A. Mendenhall, of this place, Mrs. P. L. McClure, of San Francisco, and Mrs. O. Wonheuning of Los Angeles. Dr. Taylor performed an autopsy, and found the cause of death to be a diseased pancreas, causes of which are rare. It appears that he had been suffering more or less for several months, although he had gone on with his work as usual and paid little attention to the trouble. A coroner's jury went out and viewed the remains, and the inquest will be held at 11 o'clock Thursday morning. The funeral will take place at 2 PM Thursday from his late residence; thence to the Presbyterian Church and the Masonic Cemetary. The Livermore Echo of September 17, 1903, page 4

He was a descendant of one of Livermore's pioneer families, his grandparents having come to California in covered wagon days. He was born near Livermore and spent his early life in this vicinity. He was a lover of the Livermore mountains, where he had spent many years and to which he frequently returned for visits. He was familiar with mineral developments in the regions south of Livermore. In recent years he had been in the employee of a utility corporation in the east bay, where he was highly regarded. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Helen Clark; a daughter, Dorothy Clark Gibbert; and a son, Amos Clark.

CLARK, Joseph Leo C.: LEO CLARK MEETS TRAGIC DEATH - Accidentally shoots himself near his mountain home while returning from a hunt: Leo Clark, youngest son of Mrs. A. Clark who resides on the Arroyo Mocho, met a tragic death last Friday evening in Long Canyon, a defile which opens into the Arroyo Valle from the south side of Cedar Mountain where the young man was living in a cabin on a range where he had his cattle pastured. Mrs. Quentin Hare heard the double report of a shot gun about dark and wondering why anyone should be shooting at that time of night stepped outside the kitchen door to listen. She heard a faint cry for help down the canyon in the direction of young Clark's camp. She called to her husband who hurried in the direction of the sound. He found Clark's saddle horse and a led horse at the bars which open from his cattle range but no sign of Clark except a pool of blood period. After a long search he found Clark at the bottom of the gulch lying partially in a shallow pool of water unconscious and in a dying condition from a terrible wound in the groin and abdomen. He hurried down to the Jordan place and got Chester Jordan to go with him to relief of the wounded man while a messenger was dispatched for a doctor. The injured man was cold in death when the doctor arrived and the remains were brought down to town by J.C. Reimers, acting for the Deputy Coroner. The cause of the accident can only be surmised. Clark had been hunting quail during the day with his brother-in-law, Ed Conrad, on the other side of Cedar Mountain. The parted company late in the afternoon, Conrad proceeding toward town while CLark started on on his return home leading an extra horse and carrying his shotgun across the front of his saddle. The accident may have occured when he attempted to dismount to open the bars or the led horse may have pulled back throwing the gun to the ground and discharging both barrels. After the remains had been viewed by the Coroner's Jury pending the usual official investigation into the cause of death which will be held next Tuesday, they were taken to the Eagles' Hall, where services were conducted monday at 2 o'clock under the auspices of Livermore Aerie No. 609, F.O.E. of which the deceased was a member. Jos. Leo Clark was born in the Livermore valley within a few days of 24 years ago, and spent his whole life within it's borders. He left besides his mother, one brother, Vernon Clark, and three sisters, Mrs. Harry Newman and Misses Stella and Hazel Clark.
