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.  There is no Robert in the 1850 census with James & Mary (NEWHOUSE) CLARK, and Robert is too old to be the son of our subject or the other James CLARK.
