"Clark-Clarke Families ...": '... a recent correspondent has cited the 1623 baptism at Tarvin co Chester, of Daniel, son of the Rev Sabbath Clark and grandson of Joseph Clark Jr. and of the Rev Valentine Overton. His older brothers were Samuel and Josias. The Rev. Josias Clark of Boston, Mass is identified by "Colonial Clergy" as son of the Rev. Sabaoth Clark. The link is obvious.'
