Clarke, Vachel Adams, Nancy 17 Oct 1813 Gibson Co.
It seems a stretch for Vachel to have married in Indiana, but Gibson Co. is not that far from Caldwell Co., and the Ohio and Wabash Rivers were the super-highways of their day.  Who knows what reason he could have had for being there...

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1820 (Broderbund CD-314):  not found, which almost certainly means he was in Missouri (there was no 1820 census in Missouri).

7.  Descendants of Robert Dillingham, Sr. [link died] by Larry Wayne Lieneke.  According to Mr. Lieneke, Vachel CLARK married Jane ADAMS ca. 1814 in Caldwell Co., KY.  I have never been able to figure what Vachel was doing in Indiana [Northwest Territory at the time], so a Caldwell Co. marriage does make more sense.  Still, other secondary sources do say he's the one who married Nancy ADAMS in Gibson Co.; and it is the only marriage record I can find for a Vachel CLARK and Vachel CLARK is a very rare name.
