James CLARK
Mary M. NEWHOUSE
WARNING:  a file submitted to the LDS (see Sources below) lumps our subject in with two other James CLARKs:  the James A. CLARK who married Mary E. CLARK and the James A. CLARK who married Rebecca LOGAN.  These are three different men, not one!

Death apparently:  1850-60, Clinton Co., IN
Occupation:  farmer
Marriage:  9 Jul 1829, Washington Co., VA
Wife:  Mary M. NEWHOUSE
Birth:  1808/9, Washington Co., VA
Death apparently:  1860-70, Clinton Co., IN
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Isaac NEWHOUSE II
Mother:  Martha McCULLOCH
Children born in Clinton Co., IN:
1.  John N. CLARK, b. 1831/2
2.  Elizabeth CLARK, b. 1837/8
3.  William CLARK, b. 1845/6
Keywords for search engines:  genealogy; USA, US, United States, Indiana, Virginia

James CLARK
Spouse: Mary M. NEWHOUSE

Robert W. CLARK
Birth: 1846, Washington, Virginia
Death: 08 Apr 1857, Washington, Virginia
Father: James A. CLARK; Mother: Mary M. NEWHOUSE
Source: patron submission
It's possible that Robert W. is William, but not if he died in 1857 or was born and died in Virginia, because our subjects' children were all born in Indiana and their son William was still living in 1860.

This may be the worst example I've ever seen of incorrectly lumping people together just because they have the same name.  These are three different James CLARKs.  Robert is not with our subjects in 1850, and even if we assume he's Robert William, our subject's son, William, is still alive in 1860, so he cannot be the one who died in 1857.
