Timothy Baldwin Clark was born 21 November 1847 in Winter Quarters, Douglas County, Nebraska, United States to Ezra Thompson Clark (1823-1901) and Mary Stevenson (1825-1911) and died 14 February 1924 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, United States of unspecified causes. He married Lucy Augusta Rice (1850-1928) 23 November 1867 in Endowment House, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, United States. Ancestors are from the United States, the United Kingdom.
Being the second son in a large family "he was only able to attend school one or two days a week," noted his daughter Mamie (Mary Elizabeth) Barrus. During those early years, he hauled his father's hay to Salt Lake City to livery stables." Thus the only school Timmy attended was taught in the home of his future mother-in-law, Lucy W. Rice. There he mastered the three Rs learning to read and write and work complex problems. Reading and studying would always be an important part of his life.
1864 Black Hawk Indian War
At age 17 he enlisted in the army and participated in the Black Hawk War. Timothy persuaded his parents to let him take the Army job and at seventeen he became a soldier in the Black Hawk Indian War traveling through central Utah. When a decision was finally made to give pensions to the Indian War veterans, Ellen said his back pay amounted to "something over $1400." He used his pension to help some of his children.
Marriage and Family
Timothy's wife Lucy was a staunch Republican. He was a Democrat. With her natural tendencies to leadership, financial ability, and farsightedness, she might have been more suited to life in the 21st century rather than in pioneer Utah. Their differences created problems, and in 1904 Lucy and Timmy were divorced. He spent his last years living in Salt Lake City.
