NINETEEN REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS

OF ATLANTIC COUNTY AND THEIR

BURIAL SITES
(provided by the DAR)

 

Thomas, Adrial and Parker Clark

 

These three soldiers are buried in the Clark Burying Ground at the site of the Clark’s
Mills
Meeting House at Clark’s Mills, Port Republic, Atlantic County, NJ.DAR has
no proof that David
andReuben are buried here also, as there were no grave markers,
but noted that Hall’s History of Atlantic County states that there are five Revolutionary Soldiers of this family who are buried here.
So the compilers of this book felt as though they were surely there also.
