5a.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  There is a William H. CLARK (æ 5, b. NC) living in Cherokee Co., NC (p. 9B), with his parents, Robert CLARK (æ 30, b. NC) & Cinthy (æ 35, b. NC), but if we follow him through to adulthood, his family moves to Missouri, and William is married and living in Jasper Co., MO, in the 1870 and 1880 censuses.  I find no other William or Henry (or W. or H.) CLARK in Cherokee Co., NC, who would appear to be our subject.

5b.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find the MEECE family.

6a.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  I find no William or Henry (or W. or H.) CLARK in Cherokee Co., NC, who would appear to be out subject.

6b.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Nancy E. MEECE (æ 10, b. GA) is living in Gilmer Co., GA (p. 78), with her parents, William MEECE (æ 48, b. TN) & Lizina H. (æ 35, b. NC), plus siblings.

7a.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  There are no CLARKs, at all, in Gilmer Co., GA.  There is no William or Henry or W. or H. CLARK in Cherokee Co., NC, the right age to be our subject.  Without some other clue as to his location in 1870 or the identity of his parents, it's nearly impossible to decide which William/Henry CLARK he is.
